A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire
A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire: A Blood and Ash Novel | Jennifer L. Armentrout
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a new novel in her Blood and Ash series Is Love Stronger Than Vengeance? A Betrayal Everything Poppy has ever believed in is a lie, including the man she was falling in love with. Thrust among those who see her as a symbol of a monstrous kingdom, she barely knows who she is without the veil of the Maiden. But what she does know is that nothing is as dangerous to her as him. The Dark One. The Prince of Atlantia. He wants her to fight him, and thats one order shes more than happy to obey. He may have taken her, but he will never have her. A Choice. Casteel DaNeer is known by many names and many faces. His lies are as seductive as his touch. His truths as sensual as his bite. Poppy knows better than to trust him. He needs her alive, healthy, and whole to achieve his goals. But hes the only way for her to get what she wantsto find her brother Ian and see for herself if he has become a soulless Ascended. Working with Casteel instead of against him presents its own risks. He still tempts her with every breath, offering up all shes ever wanted. Casteel has plans for her. Ones that could expose her to unimaginable pleasure and unfathomable pain. Plans that will force her to look beyond everything she thought she knew about herselfabout him. Plans that could bind their lives together in unexpected ways that neither kingdom is prepared for. And shes far too reckless, too hungry, to resist the temptation. A Secret But unrest has grown in Atlantia as they await the return of their Prince. Whispers of war have become stronger, and Poppy is at the very heart of it all. The King wants to use her to send a message. The Descenters want her dead. The wolven are growing more unpredictable. And as her abilities to feel pain and emotion begin to grow and strengthen, the Atlantians start to fear her. Dark secrets are at play, ones steeped in the blood-drenched sins of two kingdoms that would do anything to keep the truth hidden. But when the earth begins to shake, and the skies start to bleed, it may already be too late.

This was the second book in this series and I enjoyed it, fun escape with these characters I will continue with the other books 📖

"The most beautiful things in all the kingdom often have jagged and uneven lines, scars which intensify the beauty in intricate ways our eyes nor our minds can detect or even begin to understand," ... "Without them, they would just be common and ordinary, like all the other smoothly cut diamonds you can find anywhere you look. Beauty, my sweet child, is often broken and barbed, and always unexpected."

This is the second book in the Blood and Ash series. I loved every page of it. It was sooo good and that ending was awesome. Jumping into book 3 now 😀

The reason that it‘s a “pick” instead of “so-so” is the final 15% of the book which is absolutely marvelous and I can‘t wait to see what‘s going to happen next. First 85% of the book is sexy times with some bickering and that‘s about it. The banter is repetitive, which is a bit sad because I love banter. World building is there though, one just has to find it. It was an easy and fast read. Will I continue with the series? Absolutely.

Love. Love. Love. The relationships formed and the amazing moments that got me yelling, “Oh my God” had my husband constantly asking me what happened and if everything was ok. I‘m going to have to break my New Years resolution of not starting another new book until I finished my stack. I just can‘t wait for the next one!

The second in the Blood and Ash series, this novel is not as action packed as the first, but just when it starts to get a little slow, there is a battle or an attack by The Hills Have Eyes style cannibals in the woods to liven things up. A bit more romancey than the first but still fun.

Her books aren‘t hard to read but this one is pretty thick. I know there‘s more than three books in this series but this felt like the second book in a trilogy, things are leading up to something but we have to get there. Does end where you want the next book. #bookspinbingo

This book is very steamy, hot and heavy if you catch my drift. I didn‘t mind it in the least 😂 It was Worded very thoughtfully that it did not read like a cheap romance. Clever dialogue. The World building is excellent so is the emotional contemplating. Thoroughly enjoyable. This was the second book after From Blood and Ash can‘t wait to read the next one. 4 1/2 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

My #doublespin pick took me literally all month to read, this one focused a little too much on romance and annoying character stuff instead of violence and I swear how did it take them the whole book to arrive where they needed to 🤣. Hopefully the next one will be better. I did enjoy it but I had to push through some parts.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Absolutely loved this book. I will always love a heroine who can, quite literally, defend herself. The constant tension between heroine and hero always had me guessing what was going to happen next. Already cannot wait to reread this epic story of adventure and self discovery.

Just got this bad boy in the mail and let me tell you guys I‘m ready to get hurt again. The first book was an absolute shitstorm. Not the best fantasy I‘ve ever read but I was intrigued enough to buy the second one. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Sometimes I just like my spice okay? #nowreading #frombloodandash #akingdomoffleshandfire

Welp, I'm in love with a fictional character... It look 30+ years of reading but it's finally happened. Casteel is... Breathtaking. Obviously I loved this book! The intense feelings surrounding everything that happened in book one? Not to even mention the very last few pages of this book. I had to reread the ending to ensure I absorbed every detail. On to book three!

Please read this series! It's not like anything I expected.

nichollinlove I zoomed through all 3 books! Can NOT wait for book 4! 9mo

Finished this one and wow what an ending. About 70% in I felt it was a bit long and seemed to have a lot of additional world building for a 2nd book in a series but wow the last third of the book. This is not a standalone and ends on a bit of a cliffhanger.
4.5⭐️ Would be 5 but for it being a little slow in places. Can‘t wait to read the next one! Making great time for #20in4marathon #audio

The problem with finishing a book at 9:30 at night that ends the way this one did, is that I know if I start the next one now, I will not get any sleep tonight. I loved this book more than the first. I have a feeling the series is going to leave me with a major book hangover. #fantasy

Here we go ... cracking into book two. The first one in the series started out slow for me but half way through grab my attention and I couldn‘t put it down! Luckily, I was able to borrow this one from a friend , since I made the vow of no book buying for the year, (due to the fact that have a massive bookshelf full of TBRs) I might have actually broken that vow , if I couldn‘t get my hands on a borrowed copy !!!!

I love this series!
I liked how this one had more plot twists, and we still don't know much about Poppy's blood and who she really is. I liked the romance, and it was definitely more convincing. I loved the banter between all the characters, especially Poppy, Casteel and Kieran. I found the pace to be a mix of fast and slow, but it worked.
I really loved that ending even if it has infuriated me, because now I need the next book like now!

Dasquirt8 I think I went back and reread the ending like 10 times to make sure I read it right lol only a few more weeks for the next book 14mo
abookdragonsretreat @Dasquirt8 Yeah, at first I was so confused by it but then I managed to understand....I think😂 14mo

This book definitely dragged compared to the first one. I felt like the first book was just so quick for 600 pages. I still loved the relationship building between “Hawke” & Poppy. Just felt like there was a lot of new terms and bloodlines introduced in this book that it was kind of hard to follow. Still a pick tho! Also the “pretending act” dragged on we all knew they both knew they weren‘t pretending lol. Don‘t want to wait for the 3rd book 😭

“Always” he whispered in the breath we shared. “Your heart was always safe with me. It always will be. There is nothing I will protect more fiercely or with more devotion, Poppy. Trust in that - in what you feel from me. In me.” pg 514.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I finished my second re-read of A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire! I‘ve been rereading the books to prepare for Crown of Gilded Bones, which I‘m so excited for next month. This book follows Poppy and Hawke going to Atlantia. Poppy must work out Hawke‘s betrayal and sort out her feelings for him. I love Poppy‘s growth and indecision about Hawke. I just love this series.

Finished this evening. I like the world building and characters of this series. Some of the dialogue is immature and repetitive. But I'm definitely invested in what happens to these characters. I now just have to wait until April for the next book.

January 1st ~ First book finished! I wanted to finish this last night but about 100 pages from the end I was just too sleepy. So I finished it today. Can't say much about it as it's book 2 but we learn more about the Wolven and Atlantia and I can't wait for book 3 in April because, that ending... wow! Love these characters.

I was worried because I enjoyed the first book so much that I would be disappointed in the second, but my worried were completely unfounded. Arguably even better than the first book in some ways, as the relationships deepen, the characters grow, and the story really takes off. I can‘t believe I have to wait so long until the next one.

Sethomas00 I just finished! Preordered #3!! 1y
