"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."

This book total blew me away. While the first book was really a set up for this Ashes, Ashes gave me a whole new reading experience! The plot line, new characters, and a great back round history that left me begging for more.
One thing I enjoy in books is the back round history to the characters. In Arson, the reader got bits and pieces of Arson's past but not really a full explanation. Ashes, gave the reader the history I was dying to know. Who where Arson's parent? How did he come by this ability? Are there more others out there just like him? I love that Mr. Vega gave such a fulfilling history to the characters that the reader has no choice but to turn the pages faster and faster!

Another great twist to this book are the new characters. Yes, characters that bring up a whole new world to question!! I for one, was super excited to read more about these characters. And the secrets! WOOHOO! This book left me hanging off the edge of my seat. I don't want to say any more less I spoil it.

Now there are several ongoing love interest here. Some I expected as others really surprised. There were characters doings that I didn't like but felt it played out well with the story line. I really like how Mr. Vega kept the story going on with lots of plot twist and turns. Nothing in this book ever gets boring. It just keeps on getting better and better.

Take my word for it and read this series. I can tell you that Arson is a build up story to Ashes which leaves a burning impression on your hands. Yes, the book is that hot.

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!
