The chosen is a fantasy series, with magic and some mythical creatures involved :) it's set in a completely new world, and we slowly get more and more informations about it... and I am constantly curious about something new... I swear, I get some answers but then I have even more questions... and all because of the fantastic writing style and the ability of the lovely Meg to create such magical place :) her descriptions make me feel like I'm there, and there are moments when I absolutely forget that I am reading a book... :) and about Helena, our main character :) we meet her when she lives alone, away from the big cities, when her childhood friend comes back and explains to her, that she is actually very powerful, but her magic was bound within her and she was taken to grow up in peace and away from the corruption and deception, because as a part of the prophecy, she will have the ability to either save or doom them all... dun dun duuuunnnnnn ;) sorry, but this moment absolutely needed a musical theme :) back to Helena :) I really like her as the main character, even though she's definitely not perfect :) but she learns from her mistakes, accepting consequences of her actions and doing her best under the circumstances she was thrown into very unexpectedly :) the first book is a fantastic introduction to the main group of characters and rules of the world :) we very quickly learn that Helena's magic is the most powerful and she is supposed to be the ruler... she will also have to have her inner circle which includes five people: The Sword, The Shield, The Advisor, The Master and The Mate :) I am not gonna go into all the details what each position entails, it's much better explained in the book :) this first story was such a beautiful surprise... I did not expect to fall in love with this world and those characters as much as I did, so I very highly recommend you guys to give it a try :) ok, now that we have all this out of the way, let me jump into all my thoughts and feelings about the sequel :) and like I warned you guys before, it will include some major spoilers from the first book, so all you new people avert your eyes ;)
Ok, last warning, SPOILERS from the first book ahead :) we pick up soon after where we left of in the first installment... Von, Helena's mate, was taken by Gillian, who turned out to not be her friend how she pretended the whole time... Helena is furious and hurting, especially because of how she and Von left things between them before the kidnapping... the majority of the book, and by that I mean almost all of it, revolves around finding and saving him... it was a great sequel in this absolutely fantastic series, although I have to admit, that I really missed all the interactions between Helena and Von, since they were separated throughout the most of the book... but all other scenes with her and her friends almost made up for it ;) we got to know more about people we met in the frst book, but we also got to meet some new ones as well :) there were twists and turns that I definitely did not expect... some heartbreaking, some wonderfully vulnerable and beautiful... and after THAT ending, I am dying to get my hands on the third installment :) yes, the situation with Von is resolved, but if you don't want to wait in agony, I would recommend you to skip that last chapter... it sets things for the next book and ends on a mother of all cliffhangers... *sighs* I read the warning before I read the book, but I thought it can't be that bad... yep, it is... :) so fair warning :) I am absolutely in love with Meg's writing style, so I highly recommend you guys to give this series a try :) I will definitely be looking forward to next installments, and all other stories she will publish in the future :)
The ending to this book is both stunning and heart-wrenching if you have reasoned out the mystery Meg leave us with. I believe I did and it brought tears to my eyes, followed by a thirst for revenge as strong as Helena's. I'll be spending the following months in eager anticipation for the conclusion to this marvelous and powerful series.
"Have you ever had a night where you had to stay awake to greet the dawn? A night where you could no longer be certain about the promise of a rising sun?"

If you've followed my reviews for any short time, you'll know that Meg Anne's first book in her Chosen series, Mother of Shadows, was one of my favorite reads of 2017. Imagine my excitement when I was offered the chance to read a copy of Reign of Ash! Certainly not an opportunity I could pass up. <3
This is a sequel after all, so expect spoilers for the first book to follow! Read on at your own risk!
This book picks up shortly after the first ended. After a character tries to create a rift between Kiri Helena and her Mate, Von, he vanishes into the night without a trace. Since we last saw Helena and her Circle, they have arrived at the Holbrooke estate, the home of Von's family. We are soon introduced to new characters, such as Von's parents and his brother Nial, as well as reintroduced to old characters, such as Gillian's brother Micha.
A large portion of Reign of Ash focuses on the prophecy and the strain wrought on Helena's magic after her separation from Von. With a piece of herself missing, Helena struggles to control her magic and her emotions. Determined to find her Mate, before the prophecy's promises can prove true, Helena and her friends set out on a quest for answers. As Helena and her Circle discover more about the prophecy, Helena must decide how to move forward with the information and warnings placed before her.
One of my favorite aspects was the friendship Helena and Ronan develop during Von's absence. Ronan's character was given much more depth and I've come to treasure him! Despite not being a member of the Circle, Ronan's loyalty to Helena runs deep and he is just as driven as she is to find Von. They shared some great scenes and Ronan's presence is a strong force in bringing Helena out of her depression.
This book shifts perspective between Helena and Von, which works great and gives the reader a glimpse into what Von is experiencing at the hands of his captors. I felt a lot of dread about what they planned to do with him, Gillian has always given me creepy™ vibes and her fascination with Von kept me worried. When their intended plans for Von came to light, I kept shouting "No! No! NO!" in my mind as I was reading.
The atmosphere of Reign of Ash becomes increasingly ominous as it progresses and I found myself on the edge of my seat as we neared the end, clutching all of my favorite characters close to my chest. I had expected the story to encompass more than it did, I've been itching to learn more about the Chosen and their lands, but I felt this was a great transition book and am looking forward to the next one! Meg Anne has created an enthralling magical world with an exciting story and captivating characters.
