Book Review: Ashes by: Estevan Vega

Publisher: StoneGate Inc
Series: Arson #1
Edition: E-book
Rating: 5/5
Genre: Paranormal

*Received by author* 

Taken from goodreads:
More than three months have passed since Arson and Emery were taken. Taken and then separated.
And experimented on.
Salvation Asylum is more like a prison than a psychiatric facility. Unknowingly, Arson has become a vital instrument in a campaign set to genetically alter mankind. Enraged, confused, trapped, and unable to fully manifest his abilities, he wonders if he will ever see Emery again. His new existence is one crawling with questions. Is Grandma alive? Where does the fire come from? Can he become more than a monster?
In Ashes, book two of the ARSON series, nightmare and reality collide as Arson must embrace what he is and the haunting realization that there may be others out there, others like him.

Wow, this book was absolutely amazing. I read the first book "Arson" and really enjoyed it, but WOHOO this book was great! It was so fast paced and just a thriller right to the core. I love when a book can absoultely captivate me from beginning to end. This book did exactly that.

Ashes will keep your heart racing and your mind guessing. You will not want to take your hands off the pages. I was absolutely captivated reading this book. The difference between Arson & Ashes was how dark, psychological, and suspenseful Ashes is compared to Arson. Ashes takes you on a ride to find out what kind of experiments they have been doing to Arson and what toll that takes on him psychologically.

This is one of the best psychological thrillers I have read and something I will have on my re-read list for sure!

I love Estevan's ability to switch point of views between Emery & Arson, it's flawless and I admire a writer who can do that without disrupting the story. Estevan is a fantastic suspenseful writer and I look forward to see what else he will do! 

Make sure to check out the first book "Arson" !
