Dust to Ash: Ashes to Ashes Trilogy: Book One by Lyra Haven

Brilliant start to a new fantasy series !!

From the Dust to Ash blurb:

Theodric Rhoan is a tracker, a member of an elite military team tasked with jobs the crown will never acknowledge. While returning home after a long mission, his team is ordered to the base of the Darsheen Mountains, where there are disturbing rumors of soldiers who haven't been seen in over a hundred years. To get there, they have to cross through the uninhabited Morehan Forest, a vast stretch of trees spanning three kingdoms.

Deep in the heart of the forest, they find the impossible: a young man so badly injured he should be dead, yet he clings to life, leaving them with an impossible choice: complete their mission or save this stranger.

Is the mysterious survivor a victim of foul magic or an enemy hiding in wait? The only thing that's certain is that the secrets he holds locked in silence have the power to burn their world to dust and ashes.

Miki J.'s review:

A very engaging and entertaining fantasy novel. Love the world building (though I do wish there was a map for reference ....) and the characters - the 2 MC's and the rest of the group, definitely found family vibe. Told from 2 POV's - we get to know the characters quickly without an overload of details ..... and there is plenty of depth to this story with all of the plot twists, soooo good !! I couldn't put the book down ..... and come to the ending, oh boy, there's more going on that you'd originally think....so yes, it's a bit of a cliffhanger..... Can't wait for next in series !
