Overview

Blood holds the power to both heal and destroy. The fingertips of a blood witch hold enough power to heal or destroy the entire world.

Kaelin discovers that she has incredible power at her fingertips: the power of blood magic. She's capable of both healing and destroying. A few drops of her blood bring an abandoned baby back from the dead.

As she struggles with her newfound power, Kaelin meets an alluring stranger with eyes unlike any Kaelin has ever seen. She finds his blue eyes with a ring of lilac around the pupils absolutely mesmerizing. However, he may have entered her life with more than a romantic relationship in mind.

Stepping through a door in a decaying factory, Kaelin falls through a portal into a frightening world. There, a sickly woman with coal-black eyes rimmed in emerald green confronts her. She demands the return of "the child" and threatens consequences if her order is not obeyed.

As Kaelin hides the abandoned baby from the authorities and runs from those who threaten her, she relies on the man with whom she's fallen deeply in love to save her. The question remains: Is he there to help her or betray her?

In the Land of Faerie, the Unseelie are dying from the spread of a fatal disease. Only the child with special blood can save them.

**Blood and Ashes is a Paranormal Romance novel with some adult content.**

Miracles and magic are happening from the opening pages, and Kaelin’s acting like it’s an every day occurrence in these desperate times. The financial situation the characters find themselves in, makes me think of current events, with businesses closing, people being deported, people losing everything, and those with hope struggling to survive. When Kaelin found the baby, I really woke up, became hooked and knew I would have trouble putting the book down, even long enough for a bathroom break. Her mother has a heart so big, so open and giving, I wish more for her. No one deserves a break more than she does. Some characters…and people…amaze me with their ability to give, and the depths of love that is freely given. First an abandoned baby, then a kitty with itty bitty legs, Kaelin takes them home and makes them her own. And Devin, the new guy across the hall. What’s up with him? Why doesn’t she question his sudden appearances? Almost as if he knows something. I know he’s going to be special. Kaelin has friends, people looking out for her and her family, like Mrs Santiago, who owns the grocery store and Gwendolyn Griffin, a healer who offers to work with her to develop her healing abilities. If you ever want candy, be sure and visit Mrs Santiago’s store. Kaelin is very resourceful, and even though she dumpster dives for additional food for the family, you would never know it by her attitude. She knows where to find apples and blueberries, ripe for the picking. She has a green thumb, and her touch can be like Miracle Gro. She does everything she can to make it to college, wanting a better life for them all. But, even though she is accepted, due to cutbacks of the governmental kind, there is no money available to help her. She chooses an alternative, Gwendolyn Griffin’s traditional healing of the witchy kind. I can see the kids with bags of Halloween costumes, as they are tossed willy nilly, while they each choose the perfect costume. Kaelin goes to the thrift store and creates a mish mash costume that makes her beauty bloom. The book is divided into three parts. Part I is Kaelin’s story that takes place in the human world. Part II is Liliana’s Story that takes place in the fairie world. Liliana is a fairy that crosses into the human world. A romance goes wrong. But the world is not what it appears to be. Part III brings them all together, exposing secrets and Kaelin’s true calling. Human, Seelie, Unseelie, good fairies, bad fairies…Magic, danger, romance, love and loss. Blood and Ashes is written for the young at heart, with easy reading and a quick pace. I love the imaginative world and characters Marilyn Peake has created. Such a great story. I found myself smiling at the simplest things. Her ability to spin a tale keeps her high on my reading list…no matter what genre she writes in. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Blood and Ashes by Marilyn Peake.
