Overview

Anonymous. That was Jennifer's life. But when she survived a domestic terrorist attack and her last-minute escape became the iconic image of the event, that life was over. Wanting only to disappear and become just another face in the crowd, she cashed in on her unwanted fame and moved to a small town, hidden away and safe.

Retired. That was Sean's life. A former covert operative - the kind the government denies exists - he'd been pushed unwillingly into a life of suburban peace and quiet. But his retirement ended when he saw Jennifer's rescue; from then on he only wanted to find those responsible for the attack, even if it meant turning rogue.

What Jennifer and Sean will both find is that nothing goes to plan, and their paths will cross in a way neither could have foreseen.

Ashes is the first in a two-book series.

    --Everybody has bad days. Today, Jennifer's involves aterrorist attack on her office building, the deaths of hundreds of her coworkers, and somehow becoming the human face of a

    Sean used to be the cause of a great many bad days for many bad people over many bad years. He's been stuck in one long bad day of his own ever since his retirement, as his current existence and what is usually referred to as "living" are not as similar as they should be. He sees the attack, as the rest of the world does, on TV. Sees Jennifer rescued from the wreckage. Sees something that awakens the very beast he's been trying to keep calm inside

    Somebody's going to have a VERY bad day.

    The way this novel switches back and forth between Jennifer's life after everything changes and Sean doing what guys who were hardcore black op types do to find our evildoers is highly effective. In lesser hands the tones would clash or it would read like two entirely separate books, and thankfully that is not the case here.

    Jennifer's story is honest, moving, and about finding the strength to get back up again following one of life's more vicious blows. Sean's is an intricate web of espionage, infiltration, and revenge. . .or is it redemption?

    Fantastic characters. A plot that hurtles you along one moment before it slows down to provide a beautifully observed snapshot of a life in transition. Bittersweet smiles, startled nerves, happy reassurance and fist-clenching thrills abound.

    Well worth your time, especially if you enjoy things that are really good.

    An interesting concept, well worth exploring. The prose is competent if not exciting, but there are some significant craft flaws in the storytelling. Still, it would have gotten three stars if not for the profoundly annoying cliffhanger that leaves no single part of the storyline completed. Those who feel differently about such surprises will have a better reading experience.
