Will it be love or death when fairy and vampire come together?

An attack on her family drives Ariya to seek protection at the Ashen Twilight House. Once there, she encounters only more danger, along with the dark rescuer who haunts her dreams.

Jace Archane is a vampire on the hunt, and distractions like Ariya are the last thing he wants or needs.But their survival might just hinge on one another when a vicious elemental creature threatens the underground world of Nightwalkers, Lycans and Shifter Elves.

Caught between a shared enemy and otherworldly love, Jace and Ariya must unite before fear can tear them apart.
He’s a Nightwalker – a modern day vampire. She’s an Aziza Fairy. The two should never meet and without a doubt, never fall in love. What happens when they do? And what happens when the past isn’t quite what you expected or remembered? Find out in A Kiss of Ashen Twilight.

Ms. Lori writes an exciting novel. I couldn’t put it down. The first installment of the Ashen Twilight Series starts off thrilling and only gives you brief moments of rest to catch your breath, but it’s worth the ride. As with other fun stories, this is one you’ll read again and again. The scenes are so rich that the reader finds themselves in the scenes, not merely watching from the sidelines.

Jace makes a great brooding hero. He feeds at night and when he finds the one woman who can bring light into his world, he’s afraid to let her go. I liked that he grew as a person through the story and that he remained handsome and in-charge even when he led with his heart. Ariya made a fantastic heroine because she never backed down. You could relate to her struggle to avenge her family and keep peace for her land. No one really wants conflict in their lives. I also liked that she never gave up on those around her. She made a great role model, as well.

Although the back and forth in time could be a bit confusing, the time jumps made sense and illustrated the story well.

If you like a very sexy fantasy novel, then A Kiss of Ashen Twilight is the novel for you. I give this work 4.5 books.
