Summary

Piper Jones can't catch a break. After a lifetime of animosity and indifference from the supernatural community, she thought she'd finally found a home with the vampire king's enforcers. Then the dark and mysterious Merc walks into her life, and it takes a disastrous turn for the worse.

Now under attack by enemies both known and unknown, Piper has little choice but to flee her refuge - and start over in a place few vampires ever go. Rural Alaska seemed to fit the bill, except for Knox and his crew of werewolves. The pack shares a connection with Piper that few of them can explain, and none of them can escape. With time running out for answers, Piper must fight the demons of her past to ensure her future - or die trying.

Great story, but ....

The narrator needs some lessons in how to pronounce certain words, quite a few actually, but it was a cracking story.

Sorry, I so wanted to like this

So, I am always up for a good story and romance but seriously . . . This had no continued plot. How can your main character disregard her major romance with no serious explanation to move on to a new “life long mate” (not even reflecting on the “event”).

I just kept thinking - where is this going?

This is so BAD, it was funny

Not sure how this godawful book got published. It made no sense most of the time, terrible writing. And the worst/funniest sex scene i’ve ever read. As for the narrator, she read too fast, and the delivery was choppy. If this was a movie (B or a C), Mystery Science Theatre would have had a field day with the dialog. One of my favorite lines was! “I was unconscious for two weeks, how could I not know this? Duh! Returning it now!!

Confusing on Ch10 no rhyme or reason to the story

I'm not even sure what this book is supposed to be about. I just know Piper is weak and whinny.

She is special but not sure why. Is being stocked for unknown reasons. And falls in love on demand with different people....

I just can't... to immature for my liking

Good book

Good story. Narrator uses different "voices" for each character which helps with keeping characters separate.

Excellent Series

I have been a huge fan of Amber's, ever since I delved into the Caged world... the Force of Nature series does not disappoint. When I found out the first book was on Audible, I had to purchase it. I am an Audible subscriber and will be holding my credits for the remaining books in this series. I love Piper, she is strong, much stronger than those in her world have lead her to believe. I can't wait to listen to the rest of her story and imagine her powers unfolding.

Couldn't even finish

This book lacked proper details for the pace the writer set. I kept waiting for all the information. After chapter 12 I had to stop.

Force of Nature

loved the story and ready to read the sequel. the narrator was excellent. most memorable moment was when Merc helped Piper heal her werewolf friend and told her it was for her then walked away.

Vampires, Werewolves, and Magic galore

I really enjoyed this story. I love the narrator. Her male voices are pretty great, and she reads with great fluidity which allows me to sink into the story. As for the book, the plot had me very intrigued. I love the way that the book is broken up so it's almost like a series in one book. The plot was something I hadn't read before, and I'm excited to see what happens in the next book. There is a bit of a love triangle and a bit of abuse that happens, so if either of those turn you off, this is not the book for you. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and will definitely be grabbing book 2!

Has potential!

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

A few words were pronounced incorrectly, which was distracting, but beyond that it was fine.

Was From the Ashes worth the listening time?

I think it has potential. It didn't make sense why Piper fell in love with Merc or Knox so fast though. The author told us but didn't really show us. Which made it kind of irritating that a love triangle is being set up.
