ARC Review+Giveaway: "Circle of Ashes" (Wish Quartet, #2) by Elise Kova & Lynn Larsh




Release Day: April 9, 2018
Publisher: Silver Wing Press
Genre(s): New-Adult, Urban Fantasy, Romance
Summary:
EVERY WISH HAS A COST BUT WILL THE SOCIETY BE WILLING TO PAY IT?
Once a hacker-for-hire living in the shadows, Josephina “Jo” Espinosa is the newest member of a magical Society. Their mandate? To grant the wishes of mortals. A simple enough task until Jo is faced with an impossible wish – and her inability to grant it might spell disaster for her entire team, if not the Society itself.
Jo is used to high-pressure situations, but after a string of disasters, the last thing she needs is stakes of this magnitude. Especially given that neither she nor the Society know quite what the consequences of failing to grant a wish might be.
The only person with answers is the Society’s aloof and cryptic leader, Snow. Yet while Jo is enigmatically drawn to the man, all their clandestine encounters leave her with only more questions about the true nature of the Society, her magic, and her own history.
Time is running out for the Society, and an executioner will rise from among them to exact the price of failure.

REVIEW

I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

The tale of the Society of Wishes continues with this thrilling, emotional sequel!
Jo and the members of the Society must make one truly difficult wish come true, which at the same time threatens to destroy their fragile friendships. As Jo also comes closer to Snow, the leader of the Society, and slowly learns about his past, tension grows with Pan and one character will suffer in the end from all of this.

While this book had higher stakes than the first, I enjoyed Nico's backstory and how Jo matured in this book. Florence is an amazing city too! The ending gutted me and made me cry so much! I didn't expect this book to end like this neither to see such a cruel side from that character. I am anxiously waiting for the next book!

Hauntingly emotional, gripping and mysterious, Circle of Ashes is a roller coaster of epic proportions!





And don't miss the first book of the series!










About the authors:


Elise Kova is the USA Today bestselling author of the Air Awakens series, Loom Saga, and Wish Quartet.

In her past lives, she has graduated from an MBA program, lived in Japan for a bit, and worked for a Fortune 500 technology company. However, she finds herself much happier in her current reincarnation as full-time author. When not writing, she can usually be found playing video games, drawing, watching anime, or talking with readers on social media. She’s happy to call Saint Petersburg, Florida, her home, but is always looking forward to her next trip.


Lynn Larsh considers herself to be a serial hobby-dabbler. She got a bachelors degree in music (which she used for all of four months), studied aerial acrobatics and classical piano for many years, worked briefly as a stunt woman in a Wild West stunt show (it's a long story), and eventually settled down into the bar tending business in St. Petersberg, FL. When she's not acting as a purveyor of fine libations, you can find her diving head first into her newest venture as a New Adult author, or simply writing Voltron fan fiction on Archive of Our Own.
