When Prince Arnion volunteers to infiltrate the prison colony of Gehenna, romance is the last thing on his mind. Rescuing its inhabitants is his only priority. But the corruption in Gehenna runs deep, fueled by the obsessions of its fanatical leader—a king rumored to devour human hearts. 

To succeed, Arnion must conceal his identity from the people he’s been sent to save, including a young woman he’s inexplicably drawn to. And when her life is threatened by two merciless guards, the prince risks everything to save her. 

Afterward, she wants nothing to do with him or his promises of rescue. But she soon realizes there’s more to Arnion than meets the eye, and what he’s about to unleash on Gehenna will change everything.

My Thoughts on Beauty From Ashes

As I’m sure you are aware by now, I love a good fantasy book. I am somewhat obsessed with them in fact. However, there is always a bit of apprehension when I pick up a new (to me) author in the fantasy genre; I have had several interesting experiences to say the least. 

But after reading the synopsis I was vastly intrigued by the way the plot was set up. It seemed like Pamela Hart was going with an allegorical sci-fi/fantasy bent and I was not wrong or disappointed in this!

The characters were lovely! They were well thought out and truly conveyed their thoughts and feelings without telling me everything. It is not an exact allegorical tale but one that hints at it, but definitely gives no doubt as to whom our hope is found. 

It is a YA novel but I think anyone would enjoy it. It is clean, has a good plot and is mostly a quickly paced storyline. Pamela Hart also hinted at more books coming to follow this one up and I would be very curious to read what other adventures she comes up with. 

Overally, I totally enjoyed this story and its enchanting characters, easy to follow world building, and allegorical style. 

4 stars. 

*I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback.
