Another fantastic job from Davidson King

From These Ashes
by Davidson King

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Davidson King’s romantic suspense style, there’s always enough tension and a real sense that something could go wrong at anytime.

There’s always two vastly different men who somehow manage to be perfect for each other.

One is always uniquely gifted with the ability to bring out the best side of what are normally incredibly dangerous men while still retaining their own strength and independence.

Here I liked how the whole narrative sort of accidentally came to be. Black wasn’t looking for Quill, Quill was just trying to survive. But somehow circumstances conspired to bring them together and make Black be the one to try and put things right.

There’s brief glimpses of Mace and Bill, Teddy and Riordan and series faves Snow and Christopher. We also get given a potential new pairing which I personally think may end up being a three, and there’s another glimpse into the world of the mysterious Pie, who is so totally the Hart heir I’d put money on it.

There is violence, as expected, but I was surprised at just how dirty Black was willing to get his hands dirty once it became clear Quill was a target. The ending is brutal but I felt not a flicker of pity for those involved.

I’m eagerly looking forward to reading the next one in this fascinating series.
