Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother the Fire ueen was murdered before her eyes On that day the Kaiser took Theodosia's family her land and her name Theo was crowned Ash Princess a title of shame to bear in her new life as a prisonerFor ten years Theo has been Is it better to have your life ended by someone who hates you or someone who loves you Ash Princess has a heroine desperately trying to reclaim her stolen throne a mindlessly evil tyrant who stole said throne and a love triangle What s that you say You ve heard this one before Yeah me too That being said to give credit where it s due it stands out for being compulsively readable and entertainingPlot and character wise it resembles many other YA fantasies But I was just complaining in my review of Sky in the Deep about how I keep reading a lot of shallow and emotionless YA fantasy books and this happens to be one that breaks the pattern I can t deny it is very compelling though it relies heavily on violence abuse and misery to keep us turning the pagesI ll spare you a plot summary you can probably guess it anyway and just say there s a rightful ueen held captive by the conuerors of her kingdom who must assist the underground rebellion and reclaim her throne Whilst fighting off the hot dudes along the way of courseMany are comparing this to Red ueen which I did think was shallow and emotionless Instead I d compare it to Sabaa Tahir s An Ember in the Ashes both books are heavy on the violence feature slavery as a theme have a love triangle sort of and an evil tyrant driving the drama and action They are also similarly paced and engaging Aside from an awkward infodump in the first chapter it goes down smoothly The violence and unfairness make it easy to keep turning the pages Shortly after the book opens Theo is forced to murder her father and nothing gets me reading like a nice dose of fury at the injustice of it all Theo s undercover manipulations are also fun to readSome of the major plot aspects seem illogical such as why the new king called the Kaiser would leave the rightful heir alive The book tries to explain it away but it doesn t really make much sense Surely if you want to dampen any hope of reinstating the rightful monarch then you would just kill the rightful monarchI should warn that it is at times grim and gory Slavery is a norm beatings torture and rape non graphic are common The divide between the dark haired olive skinned Astrean people and the pale skinned blonde haired Kalovaxians is clearly along racial linesBUT what can I say It is also an entertaining pageturner If you have room in your heart and on your bookshelves for another fantasy with princesses evil rulers rebellion and romance then you could definitely do worse than this oneTW graphic abuse and torture rape non graphic racismBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube
