The Beautiful Ashes (Broken Destiny #1)
Harlequin / August 26, 2014 / $14.95 print, $7.99 digital
In a world of shadows, anything is possible. Except escaping your fate.
Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse—her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her.
Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn't mean he can change his fateno matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy. Together they search for the powerful relic that can save her sister, but Adrian knows what Ivy doesn't: that every step brings Ivy closer to the truth about her own destiny, and a war that could doom the world. Sooner or later, it will be Ivy on one side and Adrian on the other. And nothing but ashes in between.
Jeaniene Frost dives into a brand new world with the first book in her Broken Destiny trilogy, The Beautiful Ashes. With little preamble, we are thrown into Ivy’s world, where suddenly instead of the happy, cohesive family she’s always known, she now has a missing sister and dead parents—and can see into a parallel world made up of dark, disfigured facsimiles of our world and people.
