Ashes to Ashes, The Scribing of Ishitar, A Review


This is a delicious novel of the coming of age of a god and an elven prince.   There are vampires, demons, angels, doxies, elves, and humans, along with gods and shape shifters, as well as other kinds of beings in this novel.  All living together in dramatic, enigmatic, and loving ways, depending, of course, on the folks involved.  There is a good amount of m2f and m2m action, some f2f is intimated, but as physical sex is fluid in this world for some folks, that's about as exciting as a jar of pixies. ;)

I found the story exciting and humorous.  I didn't want to put it down to go about the rest of my day and rushed through my chores to get back to reading this story.  If you like stories with great characters, lively action, and good romance, that occurs in the levels of Heavens and Hells, then grab this book as quick as you can and don't let it burn you while reading!  :)

However, if you like books where characters are staidly human only, and the missionary position in China is the only position, which isn't even actually referred directly, then please avoid this book and leave it for the more adventurous souls in the reading world.

I gave this book a 5/5 stars for fully involving me in the secondary world and for making me cry when its heroes got hurt and laugh when they had fun.

I got this book through the LibraryThing Member Giveaway Program.
