The vampire was a pain in the ass, but if she met his gaze her mind started sinking into a pile of mush-not because of his enthrallment skills but because he was, well, Jean-Pierre.

The Guardians of Ascension series by Caris Roane is an outstanding paranormal romance story. Ms Roane is a skilled storyteller and the whole concept is still as wonderful in this installment as it has been on the others. That being said, I felt as if this book was more of an in-between book rather than a stand alone. All series have books like this, completely necessary to the advancement of the plot, but not the strongest as stand-alone installments. There are many subplots which intrude in the main story of the relationship between Jean Pierre and Fiona, which while necessary seemed to take away from the development of the primary story line.

Born of Ashes tells the story of Jean Pierre, Warrior of the Blood out of 1700's Revolutionary France, and Fiona, a former blood slave who is turning out to be much more powerful than initially thought of as seems to be the pattern for all the brehs (mates) for the warriors. Jean Pierre and Fiona know they are meant for each other, but fight it due to past experiences which have left them closed off emotionally. As a reader, I understood this, and many of the other warriors have gone through similar PTSD issues. The characters are likeable separately and the truth is they fit as a couple. I was just dissapointed that the chemistry between them didn't really sizzle outside the bedroom. They were both so intent on not bonding and fighting their emotions that the romance was somewhat flat. Only when Jean Pierre got jealous did I feel some of the usual sparks outside the bedroom. Still, I was happy they finally got their relationship fixed and got their happily ever after. Their relationship is not really the strength of this particular novel.

Where this novel works best is as a set-up for future installments, which always reminds me of Star Wars Episode V (second of the old Star Wars movies). This novel really began in Wings of Fire, and there were so many subplots left unfinished here that the book didn't seem to really end.

First we have the relationship between Thorne and Marguerite, the couple for the next book titled Obsidian Flame. Thorne is the leader of the Warriors of the Blood, and beside his obvious strength is also known for being somewhat of an alcoholic and very much tormented. He loves Marguerite, but she has been imprisoned for a long time and is a known nymphomaniac, with a lot of power emerging. We know he will go after her, we know she is meant for him. What we don't know is how in the world Ms. Roan is going to work that relationship out with all the psychological issues they both have. This goes beyond PTSD. And Marguerite's behavior/affliction is not endearing in the least. She is a smart-alec, and has the potential to win the readers over, but it will be very difficult based on what I saw in this book. The readers love Thorne, in spite of or maybe because he is so damaged. Marguerite's treatment of him is not going to endear her to anyone. It will be a challenge for the author to make her a character worthy of Thorne in a way that is believable to the reader given the history the two share. It is worth mentioning that Parisa's reaction to Marguerite in Born of Ashes was great! I did not expect that one at all!

Another relationship that is left up in the air and seems to be a future installment is that of Endelle, the Supreme Leader of the good guys including the Warriors of the Blood, and the mysterious character of Braulio. This book gives enough to set up a future story, but it is so up in the air it is frustrating. On the other hand, we hear nothing of Leto, the warrior who sacrificed himself to infiltrate the bad guys' camp. He was supposed to be the protagonist for book 6, so who knows what will happen now.

All in all, the book is solid, but I have come to expect more chemistry in this series, more sizzle. Readers who follow the series have to read this one if they do not want to lose their place on the sequence of events, and they will be happy to see Jean Pierre and Fiona settled. Readers who are new to the series will not want to start with this one. It is definitely not a stand alone volume. The series is excellent, I highly recomend it, but make sure to start with book 1. Ascension is an absolutely thrilling and romantic book, and will get new fans started on the right track.

I actually wasn't planning on loving this book. I thought I would just read it to keep up with what was going on so I could get to Thorne's story. From the previous book, I thought that Fiona was going to be an annoying simpering woman who wouldn't appreciate Jean-Pierre-although I didn't know what to expect from him either. Instead, this book shocked the pants off of me!

*Some Spoilers Ahead*

I'll start with Fiona because I think I owe her for not being the simpering pain I thought she would be. My favorite part about her was her respect for Jean-Pierre. It didn't matter that she wasn't ready to love him. She still told him how beautiful he was to her and how great of a fighter he was. I don't recall such admiration in the other books although I know with every book I thought the warriors deserved it from their women. When Fiona said all these things actually to Jean-Pierre, my own admiration for him grew. It was wonderful. Next, she was a strong woman. Okay, maybe she cried a little too much, but she worked hard most of the book. She had real goals-ones that did not include forcing herself away from her man like the other women-that she aimed for. She never lost her focus. I loved that. Also, her fighting rocked. She actually made a difference in the book, and though it depended on others to do so, she was willing. I say again, she was a strong character. Finally, Fiona showed great respect to the lost women. She had some beautiful parts in this book where she made sure to recognize every woman who had been hurt and killed. The author did some great writing with this.

As for Jean-Pierre, he was a rock for Fiona. He was there for her even when he had his doubts. Besides his wonderful French in the book, he did not have a dramatic character. He was perfect for Fiona because he was steady and comforting and understanding. He gave her all the space she needed. Of course he still had those warrior traits that made him oh-so hot.

I liked reading about the old characters. It was nice to know that life went on with them yet what they did in their own stories was useful for the future. My biggest problem, however, was learning about Thorne and Marguerite. I was looking forward to Thorne because I wanted to understand his pain, but now I want nothing to do with their upcoming relationship. Everything they have between them is the opposite of what Fiona and Jean-Pierre have. And they have something incredibly sweet and full of respect. Since I loved their relationship I have a feeling I will hate Thorne's and Marguerite's. But once I managed to skip through their parts, it was okay.

And speaking of skipping through parts, I feel like I had to do a lot of that in this book. It's a sad fact that I had to skim, but I got really annoyed at how much of the book wasn't dealing with Fiona and Jean-Pierre. Maybe it's because I liked them so much that it ticked me off that the whole book wasn't more about them, but I have never noticed the other books spending so much time dealing with outside stuff.

Overall, I had to stick with giving this book a five-star rating because I seriously loved the main characters. They fit together well and they were so adorable that they are the reason why this book is now my favorite of the series. Did I mention that their sex is great too? It SIZZLED! Anyway, I almost thought this book was written by a different author because BORN OF ASHES is so different than the other books from the series. I just loved it despite its annoying parts.

Don't get me wrong I enjoy this series but this book was not on the level the others were. It was still a good book in it's own right but I had hoped for more.

The series picks up where the last book leaves off almost. When Fiona and Jean-Pierre meet in the hospital for the first time. This book deals with the trauma Fiona suffer's at Rith's hands. As we found out in the previous book Fiona was drained of her blood to death and then repeatedly brought back to life. Also known as dying blood and is highly addictive. The trauma she suffered follows her everywhere including into her new relationship. This is what made the book hard to get through. She is very resistant to everything. I don't blame her it's not her fault but it was very frustrating at times. Especially when I feel that if she just let's go she would feel much better.

Jean-Pierre was also hurt in the past by a loved one. This prevent's him from fully opening himself up to Fiona the way he should. He was a trooper giving the space and time that Fiona needed even when it hurt him in the process.

In the end there is love, bloodshed, revenge, exploration, new found gift's and lots of love to be had in this book. I enjoyed the ending very much.

The next book Thorne and Marguerite will be interesting. We did get to see quite a bit of them in this book. I have a feeling though I am going to want to knock Marguerite out though.

We also got to see more of Endelle. I can't wait for her book in the end. It will be quite interesting.
