When Prince Arnion volunteers to infiltrate the prison colony of Gehenna, romance is the last thing on his mind. Rescuing its inhabitants is his only priority.

To succeed, Arnion must conceal his identity from the people he’s been sent to save, including a young woman he’s inexplicably drawn to. And when her life is threatened by two merciless guards, the prince risks everything to save her. Afterward, she wants nothing to do with him or his promises of rescue.

My Review:

*I was offered a digital copy as part of this tour. This does not affect my review. This review is voluntary.*

Beauty From Ashes intrigued me from the moment I read the blurb, and the story inside was everything it promised to be! I loved this unique look at Christ’s love for HIS children told in an allegory style set in a sci-fi dystopian fantasy world.

The world building and writing in Beauty From Ashes is so well done! Prince Arnion was such an interesting character, as well as Acadia, and I loved seeing how their stories intertwined as they went along!

In the story Prince Arnion loosely represents Christ’s love that was displayed in HIS coming to earth and dying for us before HE rose again. There are clear differences, and Prince Arnion ends up involved with Acadia which decidedly different from the true biblical account, but as this is allegorical and also not directly a book about Jesus HIMSELF but more of an expression of what HIS love might look like, it was interesting to see how the author chose to portray this love in a fantasy story format.

The dystopian fantasy world in Beauty From Ashes is really interesting. I’ve always been drawn to fantasy stories and dystopian type settings, seeing how the characters choose to respond to the challenges imposed upon them by the world around them, and this one was unique enough that it really stood out in this aspect. The author hints as the possibility of more of Prince Arnion and Acadia’s story to come, so I’m curious to see what happens next!
