This war is not being played on a battlefield.
Killed by the man she loves, not even death is kind to Zoey.
Neither life nor her fae powers will let her go in peace.
In this final installment, Zoey’s strength, determination, and trust are put to the ultimate test. In the fight to protect the people she loves and stop DMG from experimenting on fae, humans, and animals to create soldiers, she learns the reality of how far Dr. Rapava will go to achieve his ultimate mission.
Of course, Rapava is not the only one willing to go to extremes. Vadik is hunting Ryker, and there is nothing he won’t do to get back the property he feels is his: both Ryker and the Stone of Destiny.
To end one evil, Zoey might have to make a deal with another. One she won't be able to get out of. And it could be the worst decision she ever made.

Lived this series. Loved the humor in the books. Just a wonderful story.
Finally no cliffhanger. A very gifted author. I totally enjoyed the series. You will need read all in order. Awesome
Normally my reviews are longer (yes longer than this one lol) because I over think. However, the less I say the more intrigued you will be. The series has ended and I am parts excited by how perfectly written the story played out and sad because these are characters I've grown to love. When an author can depict an emotion with words that make you feel all of what is being said, then they've not only done their job, but did it well. This is how I feel about SMB's From Burning Ashes . None of the characters had it easy. From the beginning it has been a race to survive. And while reading, all I could say was "can they catch a break?" lol. FBA is everything I'd hoped it would be and some. It was heart pounding, heartfelt and an adrenaline rush as Zoey, Ryker and Sprig fought to the death against their pursuants. Stacey once again proves herself in the finale of an amazing series. She had me worried for a moment, but she never seems to disappoint her readers. Even though her cliffhangers have cliffhangers. FBA has become another favorite to be cherished and housed in my heart for life!
Holy monkey-sprites, the emotions! I laughed, I cried, I gasped, I growled, I swooned, I got hungry for any and all things honey-coated, and I eventually sighed in contentment (and I highlighted a ridiculous number of lines). In typical Stacey Marie Brown format, this book continues the Collector series' fast-paced, epic adventure with shocking surprises, devastating twists, hot romance, dark mysteries, heart-pounding action and slathered-with-honey hilarity. FBA starts right at the torturous cliffhanger from ATD (book 3) and somehow manages to pick up in intensity from there. Gripping ganger and horrifying attacks come from all sides--the DMG, Vadik and his fae men, and even from within Zoey's hodgepodge group of thieves and con-artist fae and hybrids--challenging Zoey's lofty goals of destroying DMG, saving her sister, freeing Annabeth, being with Ryker, refereeing the Croygen-Sprig banter, keeping the Stone of Destiny safe, and above all surviving! With all that, I wasn't sure how Stacey Marie Brown was going to wrap everything up! But I should know by now, that though she tortures my heart and soul with her dark, twisted tales, she is a mastermind of weaving brilliant plotlines with captivating characters in her fantastic imaginary world. A perfectly ending to one of my favorite series! A MUST read if you enjoy NA supernatural/fantasy.
