RELEASE DAY REVIEW by Jena: From the Ashes (Force of Nature #1) by Amber Lynn Natusch (@AmberLNatusch)

From The Ashes CoverPiper Jones can’t catch a break.
After a lifetime of animosity and indifference from the supernatural community, she thought she’d finally found a home with the vampire king’s enforcers. Then the dark and mysterious Merc walks into her life, and it takes a disastrous turn for the worse.
Now under attack by enemies both known and unknown, Piper has little choice but to flee her refuge—and start over in a place few vampires ever go. Rural Alaska seemed to fit the bill, except for Knox and his crew of werewolves. The pack shares a connection with Piper that few of them can explain, and none of them can escape.
With time running out for answers, Piper must fight the demons of her past to ensure her future—or die trying.

And she does it again!  
So, be jelly, readers.  Be very jelly.  When Amber Lynn Natusch was writing this book, I was lucky enough to get to read it AS she was writing it.  As she finished chapters, she would send it to me.  If you ever have the opportunity to beta for an author in this fashion, it’s kind of awesome.  It’s like waiting for your weekly fix on  lol  Except I was getting it every day.
From the Ashes kicks off a brand new series from Amber Lynn Natusch.  If you’re familiar with the Caged series and expecting another Ruby, you’re not going to find it here.  Piper is a brand new character and she’s distinctly different from Ruby.  She’s got her own world of trouble to deal with and while it’s nothing like the Caged series, Natusch’s familiar writing and snark are readily recognizable from the first page.
What paranormal romance would be complete without a book boyfriend?  Well, fret not, ladies.  From the Ashes has a whole CAST of book boyfriends.  Each guy has an original personality and as the reader, I fell in love with each of them right off the bat.  You’ve got your alpha male types, the lovable types, and the types that you kind of want to slap around a bit right before you force them into a bear hug.  You guys are very familiar with my penchant for bad guys and Natusch has a couple to choose from in this adventure.  🙂
Overall, I love it end-to-end, and I cant wait for the next book in the series.  The author has created a new world that somehow feels familiar without also feeling like just another chapter in her existing series.  The characters are complex and well written, the dialog is witty, and the action is never-ending.  If you like urban fantasy series such as Mercy Thompson or Kate Daniels, then you’d like From the Ashes.

About Amber Lynn Natusch

amber-plaqueAmber Lynn Natusch is the author of the bestselling Caged, as well as the Light and Shadow series with Shannon Morton. She was born and raised in Winnipeg, and speaks sarcasm fluently because of her Canadian roots. She loves to dance and sing in her kitchen—much to the detriment of those near her—but spends most of her time running a practice with her husband, raising two small children, and attempting to write when she can lock herself in the bathroom for ten minutes of peace and quiet. She has many hidden talents, most of which should not be mentioned but include putting her foot in her mouth, acting inappropriately when nervous, swearing like a sailor when provoked, and not listening when she should. She’s obsessed with home renovation shows, should never be caffeinated, and loves snow. Amber has a deep seeded fear of clowns and deep water…especially clowns swimming in deep water.
