In getting ready for The Sweetest Burn (Broken Destiny #2), I listened to the audiobook of Beautiful Ashes (Broken Destiny #1) which I first read in 2014. At that time, I gave it 4.25 stars. After listening to the audiobook I would now give the book three stars because Ivy is so whiny in the audio narration. I still like the worldbuilding of the series, but Ivy is a stupid heroine. I gave the original rating because of the unique worldbuilding. Two biblical lines come together to fight demons. One of those lines is destined to betray the other. The hunt for biblical weapons had such potential. Now for book two, The Sweetest Burn.
I do take umbrage with a heroine who is a history major and has never read the Bible. Hmmm . . . As a history major myself, there isn’t a world religion I haven’t researched. How does a history major know so little about world mythos and religions? Ivy, the poor girl, is too dense to live. I don’t know know how one of my favorite authors wrote this book. The depth and palpable draw her characters normally have are totally absent in this book. This is the author who created Bones and Vlad and kick-ass women like Cat of the Night Huntress series. Ivy is whiny and her sister Jasmine is nails-on-a-chalkboard whiny. Adrian is a caricature of Frost’s previous alpha males. Vlad and Bones would have scoffed at his vacuous angst. The characters are flat and can’t even be called one-dimensional; furthermore, the evil demon has more depth of personality than any other character. After years of waiting, this book was so not worth the wait. It was a pointless, anticlimactic treasure hunt.
The romance is nonexistent. Ivy is so caught up in her need for Adrian to prove he won’t betray her and that need kills any potential the book has to be good. Prove you won’t betray me and we can have sex. Really? Pathetic!
What makes it worse is the book has basic errors in editing such as characters changing names. A priest who is a minor character has three different names in this book! His name changes from Father Louis to Oliver, to Luis. Harlequin, as the publisher of a book they are selling, failed its consumers. I realize the publishing world has changed since Fan Fiction and self-publishing hit the marketplace. Publishers are all in a rush to put out books to compete with the thousands of ninety-nine cent authors who are gobbling up their market share. I have come to the conclusion that whoever edited this book didn’t read it or give Ms. Frost any feedback. Harlequin, as the publisher, and its employees let this book go to print with continuity errors.
I am usually never this harsh in a review but having waited years for the series to continue only to find this is what the publisher and author served up makes me extremely disappointed. I would have waited longer for a better book since Frost is an extremely talented writer. If you don’t believe me, go read her Night Huntress series which is some of the best paranormal romance written.
Jeaniene's heroines are always kick-ass, and Ivy is no exception. As the last Davidian, she has to save the world from Demons, and since Adrian is the last Judean, he is supposed to destroy her before she can destroy his demon kin. Falling in love with her is not on the agenda, but "best laid plans" and all......
This installment has Adrian reentering Ivy's life, and she's really not sure that's a blessing. In fact, she's much more certain that curse doesn't even start to cover it.
If you like a great paranormal tale, try this one. Since it's a trilogy, you know that it won't be a major read, and since it's finished, you can read all of them NOW! Make sure you have all on hand though, since you won't be able to wait for the next installment!
Every Jeanine Frost book is epic and if you have never read one you need to! I read everything she's written and I have never been disappointed!
