Switching character POV every few chapters may have added a little bit to my confusion, but it also added so much depth to the overall story and really helped me understand the motivation for some of the characters. I did feel like this one moved quite a bit away from Joclyn and Ilyan, who have always been our main focus, which was equal parts good and bad (good because it helped develop other characters, bad because I love Joclyn and Ilyan and wanted more about them!). I was a little let down by the last few chapters, as I felt the whole series had been building to one particular scene and it apparently isn't going to happen, at least not in the way we expected. But I'm not too upset, as it's perfectly possible we will still get *something* like it. That's how it is with all storylines that involve foresight and predictions, things are fulfilled in different ways than you thought.
I will say the book would benefit from some more editing and proofreading. I noticed several punctuation errors, mistaken homophones (thrown instead of throne, vile instead of vial, etc.), and some descriptive words were overused. I'm a perfectionist though so those things just stick out to me. Overall, I would say to the author: well done, keep plugging along, get some editing help, and I very much look forward to Crown of Cinders.
Oh, my holy hell. I had tried to write this review just after I finished reading the book, but I was too much of a mess, my thoughts jumbled, and I'm pretty sure I would've let out more than one spoiler. So here I am, a couple days later, and my mind is still reeling over the events that took place in this book, the lines crossed, and even where it was cut off ( I mean what the heck Rebecca Ethington!! ) That last book better be coming out sooner rather than later.
My little Imdalinders, you will certainly not be disappointed in Dawn of Ash! It was everything I had hoped for and more. With more POVs from Joclyn, Ilyan, Wyn, Ovailia, Sain, and even Ryland. We are taken around in a constant stream of just enough information to sate, but never fully satisfy the qustions brimming. What is the True Future going to hold? Can you really break a sight? Do they have to die? What's Sain up to (Man, I thought Edmund was a d*#k at the beginning of this series? Whoo, Ryland and Ilyan, your daddy dearest is a cuddly teddy bear compared to Joclyn's)? And with each new reveal, new questions just popped up more and more.
Joclyn truly comes into her power, or her power comes into her, but either way...MONUMENTAL!! I won't give anything away, hopefully, but she actually spends most of the book in one vision or another. Then there's Ilyan who is still a sweetheart and knight-in-shining armor, always trying to save his Love and his People, but he seems to have taken a back seat in this book with all the other things going on, this book much more heavily focused on Joclyn and Sain, with a side of Wyn. You can never forget Wyn.
Sain, I don't think I can fully express how much I despise him, and yet appreciate his character, but mostly I despise him. Can we kill him yet? Like now? The second I read this passage?
"I changed it and created a war that would end in her death. I set brother against brother and father against son. I took the image I had seen of Joclyn beside the well, of her magic restarting all of the magic. I took the other, of her alongside her father-in-law in peace. I took the battle that ended in life. I took it all away and showed him death and destruction, instead. I showed him her dead body as he held her, as he screamed. I took his future away."
Yeah, screw you, too Sain. Yeah, I'm going to leave it there because I'll either give the book away or ramble and diatribe on about Sain..neither one is good.
Then there is Wyn, Wyn who I love and is fighting so hard for the ones she loves, the ones she lost. Talon is still talking to her in her dreams, she can still hear her daughter's voice, begging for her to save her, and the thing that could set her free also puts her at the greatest risk. But Wyn is struggling with the two sides of herself, so asking for help and fearing what others will say...yeah NO! Stubborn Mule. But I still love her and my heart breaks when she comes to face two of her own (I'm not telling you a darn thing of what that's supposed to mean so :P )
Ryland. Oh Ryland. He can't seem to stay out of love, but this time it seems to be the right kind of love, not a I must possess you-kind of love. He's also in charge of training the Chosen who Joclyn managed to save from go Edmund crazy evil, or dead, and train them for battle. But The very first and youngest they saved Jaromir, stays with Ryland where ever he goes, looking for guidance and acceptance. It seems Ryland has found himself a new ward, and he's scared witless.
So overall this book was quite amazing! The pacing was good. There was action, but it didn't over run the book, and plot twists. I was serious in the beginning when I said that I'm ready for the next book, this one leaves it's characters and you dangling on the edge of a very dangerous precipitous. One move and it can go either way, but what move? whose? Is everything as it seems, or are there still twists to be had?
This book was like falling into the Wells of Imdalind. There's great truth and power here, but also not all truths are clear.
Until the next.
