In the beginning I was on the fence about how this book would play out. It reads very choppy and unclear in the beginning, but as you read on it levels out and you have a better understanding of the characters. I am not a big fan on books that switch from character to character. For me it takes away some of the bond that you would normally forge with the main character. Rochelle makes it work with he www.

Rochelle makes it work with her story, instead of one bond you form two. I liked that this was not your fairy tale romance with a happily ever after. Throughout most of the book, both characters are in pain emotionally. Even with each other, there is so much distance that neither can come to grips with what is in front of them. The big mystery is who and what Jade is and what part Conner is supposed to play in her life. Rochelle leads you to believe a few things about Jade but beware, you will never figure it out.

I am a big fan of the tough females who don't need to be saved every five seconds. That is exactly what Jade is, tough on the outside but hollow on the inside. It gives her an opportunity to grow as a character. I like that Conner and Jade don't form a romantic relationship in the beginning. They are friends and you see them grow together and actually fall in love. This book contains so much mystery and suspense that it grips you in and doesn't let go. I am very excited to see what happens in book two. Nov 27, L. Dover rated it it was amazing.

First and foremost the cover drew me in from the very beginning.

I absolutely love it and I was itching to be able to read this book. Ashes and Ice was an amazing story that kept me captivated to the very end. I like seeing how things play out in other perspectives and to also get an inside glance on how the characters are on the inside. The characters were well developed and the story line unique. I loved First and foremost the cover drew me in from the very beginning. I loved seeing how Jade and Connor grew throughout the book and became the strong and brave characters I knew they could be.

Jade's character starts out in the book with memory loss. She has no clue who she is or why she can't remember anything, but she's determined to find the answers. When she meets Connor everything changes. They both help each other to become the strong characters that was lying within themselves. I highly recommend this book to anyone. It's hard to write a review and not give anything away so holding back is very difficult.

If you want twists and turns and an amazing plot then this is the book for you.

Now I can't wait for the next book!!! Feb 20, Lori rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jade is a girl who feels empty. She doesn't remember who she is, or where she came from. She has no hopes and dreams.

She has no heart. All she has is blackouts and a strange thing pulling her forward. His dad recently passed. His dad was his hero, and his friend. He feels empty too. He wants to hide. He has no hope. Until Jade comes into his life. She gives him something to glow about. But there is more to Jade then her pretty looks. Can Connor handle what's insi 4. Can Connor handle what's inside of her? When a Lady Amber posted about a book tour for this book on facebook I immediately jumped on board. Despite the fact that I had sworn of blog tours and review books. I just don't have enough time to do them anymore.

To be honest this cover just drew me in. Then I read the blurb, and I was like; "Yup, gotta read this one! The characters really brought me into the story. I always identify with outcasts. Maybe because I am one, but either way I related to both the male and female lead in this book. I understand what it's like to feel like you aren't good enough, although in Jade's case, well, let's just say my problems where never as big as hers.

But the pain they both feel is very real and intense. I think of spit up blood, black suits, roses and eulogies and wet pillows. I think of lonely guitars, quiet houses, pointing fingers, and scraped foreheads. I think of falling and not wanting to get up. She very much gets the way teens talk, think and feel. Not that I am a teen, but I happen to be around one a lot.

Also, in the case of full honesty, I often feel like a 16 year old trapped in this old lady body. The character's their problems, their mannerisms and everything about them feels authentic. Which is always a big plus to me. Sometimes when us adults write teenagers we tend to not get them right. Not the case here. The story itself had a very Beautiful Creatures sort of feel too it. So if you enjoyed those books you will like this one. Personally, I thought this story was much better than BC.

Yes there are moments of light in it too, but it's got a great edge too it that Rochelle embraces. She isn't writing it and then instantly trying to shove it out of the way with puppy dog love. I love dark edgy things and this book has them. It's really got a lot of moments of real horror that people like me will go nuts over. I look away from all of them, ashamed that their ugliness is too hard for me to bear. Their skin's a strange almost bluish tinge, the color of their eyes fading to only a hind of color amidst stark whiteness in their eye sockets.

Necks twisted, broken arms reaching. Mouths open too wide with pointy, decaying teeth revealed through cracked lips. This book was just amazing. I admit the first few chapters left me scratching my head. Partially because of the POV changing, and partially because everything about Jade is so vague. But once Jade kind of hits her stride so did my enjoyment of this book.

Everything within this review is honest. I don't even know where to begin with this one. I saw the cover, loved it. Saw the blurb, loved it. Saw an excerpt on its release day, lost all hope. I read it and didn't stop reading it if I could avoid having to put it down for any amount of time. And when I was forced to get away from it, like while I was driving or photographing my husband's award ceremony, I couldn't keep my brain from wrapping around the thought of it like some voracious little kitten.

Okay, backtrack, breathe, focus-- Ashes and Ice drove me to its drawing depths almost as soon as I took the first dive into the story. It was dark and messy, halfway chaotic. I imagined the years of visionary reconstruction that those first few chapters had to have undergone, yet it felt as seamless and final as breathing.

Inhale, Jade's madness and confusion; exhale, Connor's misery and bleak outlook on his life. Inhale; Jade flounders in the tatters of her new, scattered existence; exhale, Connor suffers through his loss and humiliation. I fell in love with watching Jade and Connor kinda pick each other up, slowly, piece by misshapen piece, healing their wounds while simultaneously gaping at their own.

My favorite part of that particular development rested in the fact that not only was their relationship significant but that of their families. Nanan, on Jade's side, took her in and was a necessary part of her life right from the get-go. Desi and her brothers, Connor's mother and uncles, were every bit as essential to his being as, in time, Jade became, and that's something I really kinda reveled in.

It was like Callen plucked all the nasty but pleasureful things I rarely get the opportunity to read and penned it all, almost to the T. I have no words for how much I loved this. It's I think my first addition to my "favorites. It needed a little help with its conventions and a quick copyediting sweep. I feel that if it had been written in a stronger, more involved prose The Sleepwalkers comes to mind , the effect of the overall storylines and individual arcs within would've only benefited, strengthened.

Other than that, Callen, you have my attention. I'm so sorry I ever doubted you. Jade has a dark past that she can't remember. She often wakes up with blood in her hands, not knowing how it got there, and then soon she'd hear about a murder. She knows the answer lies in her memory, but it's always evading her.

Connor, on the other hand, Actual rating: Connor, on the other hand, just recently lost his dad. He tries to move on and continue living as he'd always done, but the pain is always there inside him. I really liked both of the main characters. I thought they wouldn't mesh well because they're both so broken and messed up, but good heavens, were they perfect together!

They became each other's anchor to survival, but I love how their relationship wasn't cheesy or anything, and how it started out as friendship. Now, some people might think there was insta-love in here - no, there's none. Connor was insta-attracted to Jade, which is normal because everyone seems to find Jade very attractive. Also, Jade only begins to get interested in Connor when she sees his grief.

It might have started as pity on her part, but it soon turned into real affection. It was very fluid and poetic, making the characters' feelings even more wrenching and compelling. I liked Jade's perspective more because Connor was a little bit too angst-y at first, but he soon grew on me, especially with his sarcasm.

Overall, this book was a true mystery. I had a lot of guesses as to what Jade's true nature was, and just as I was starting to feel sure that I'd guessed right, another clue would be thrown in and confuse me again I love guessing games, and I can't wait for the sequel! Feb 07, Tee loves Kyle Jacobson rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ashes and Ice is a book that took me by storm!

I have to say that I read a lot of books but this one is going to be one series that i re-read and re-read over and over again. It has so many twists and turns and keeps you on your feet that you have no idea what is going to happen next. Then you read it and you say no way I never saw this coming. The added bonus for me was the story telling from both POV'S. I love a story told by both points of view because you get to read and feel what the other Ashes and Ice is a book that took me by storm! I love a story told by both points of view because you get to read and feel what the other character is feeling at the time.

And lordy lordy this book is packed with lot's of emotions some loss and a whole lot of love. In my reviews I usually give somethings away to grab the reader in but for this one I will not because this book is so on point you can't give one thing away with blabbing all the story. Can you imagine waking up with no memory of who you are or where you are? You are coated in blood and you are just not sure where is has come from and who it came from. You want to remember but it is just not there.

For Jade she will have to figure out what happened and who she is in order to move forward with her life. Connor has lost someone very close to him and he is trying to survive. He wants to feel something but he can't. The death has rocked his world and he needs something but he is not sure what he needs. Until he meets Jade and he feels something for her but he is not sure what. Together they feel safe and secure but underneath all that security lies something that may or may not destroy them.

Together they love but together may just kill one of them Aug 29, Bella rated it really liked it Shelves: Jade has no memory of her past, or even her name. She needs answers and she needs to figure out just who and where she came from. When Jade finds Nana, a woman who takes her in she starts to searches for the answers she needs. What will Jade find out? Will she be able to get the answers she needs? Will her nightmares stop and will the craziness in her life clam down.

When Jade falls for a boy who makes things change inside her she starts to worry that the bad inside her might break free. She needs answers and she needs them soon before all she cares for is lost for good and the nightmares turn to reality. It was a FOR sure on the edge of your seat kind of read. It flowed well and the characters were intriguing!

I really was truing pages fast because Rochelle wrote such a mysterious story! I love the fight with evil in this one and also that the good over powered it. Make sure to pick up ASAP this is a stimulating book and a thrilling ride to take! Ni siquiera tienen sexo btw. Oct 06, Jessy rated it really liked it.

Ashes and Ice tells the story of Jade, a girl with no memories of her past and who is fighting a terrible battle to remain sane and to stop the darkness within her from taking over her life. She is plagued with horrible dreams and visions of murdered girls and she tries desperately to figure out what is happening to her. Along the way she meets Connor, who is trying to come to turns with the sudden death of his dad Holy cow!

Along the way she meets Connor, who is trying to come to turns with the sudden death of his dad. Connor just wants to be invisible, to take the back seat so as to avoid the notices of the school bullies. But when Jade explodes into his life, he soon starts to emerge from his shell and begins to think that this girl is the one to pull him from his misery. They both need each other more than they realise.

The author has a magical way with words. The words flow effortlessly, with a lyrical quality to them. Every emotion is portrayed with such force and beauty that you can't help but get choked up on more than one occasion. I got so caught up in the story, I didn't want to put it down. I can't tell you any more about the story because you need to experience it for yourself.

But I will tell you this. This story will rock you to your core. It will stay with you long after you've finished. So be prepared to be amazed. And don't forget the tissues! Feb 01, Caryn rated it it was amazing Shelves: At first I was a little worried about the writing style. I wasn't really used to it and I've never read anything like it. It was a good change though from reading other things that I'm used to. It had a great story, lots of action, suspense, and romance. I highly recommend this one! View all 3 comments.

Apr 16, Ashley rated it it was amazing Shelves: My least favorite reads are about high school kids. I decided to give this one a try and I'm so glad I did. I had no idea what was going on throughout basically the whole book but I loved every part of it. Yup, you guessed it. I can't wait to read more about Jade, Connor, and Giovanni. Feb 01, Hmr28 rated it it was amazing. This author has such beautiful prose that for the first time in a long time I actually had to look up the note saving feature on my Nook because I knew there were certain turns of phrase that I would want to visit again.

Outstanding novel and I'll read anything I come across by this author. Mar 06, -y. He lights up the pages and I can't help but root for him. I like the world the author created. This is a page turner book. Feb 10, Rita Webb rated it it was amazing. I'm in Book Love! I am soooo impressed with Rochelle's debut novel. BookNook — Young Adult book reviews 2. Although it wasn't a perfect book overall, the main reason I'm giving this book 2.

I never fully connected with the characters or the plot, and while part of that is due to faults in the book, I think a large part is just because of me. Let's start off with Jade. The chapters from Jade's point of view never interested me in the slightest. Her thoughts always felt so fragmented, disjointed, and she always spent so much time worrying about her lost memories and the thoughts that haunted her which, to be fair, makes sense , that I never got a good sense of who she was.

But when I read from Connor's perspective, Jade felt like a completely different person. But I never got that impression of her when I was actually reading from her point of view. The invitation is noted. Now, in context, it does make sense that Jade would frustrate me, but I just couldn't relate to her on the level that I wanted.

It's hard to explain without spoilers, but ultimately, I felt like it could have been written in a different way that would make me sympathize with Jade more. Obviously a huge part of this story is the big mystery. Why can't Jade remember anything? Why was she covered in blood?

The Book of 1 Chronicles (KJV) read by Alexander Scourby

Why does she get violent, creepy thoughts? I just got a little sick of Jade moping around, wondering who she is, but seemingly never making any progress on that front. It made the book feel a little fragmented and confusing, and I never had a clear idea of where it was heading. And then when we finally got the big reveal, that's when the "not in line with my personal tastes" aspect kicked in. I almost don't know how to tell you why I don't like it.. It's just not something that really interests me.

And the new characters that are introduced at the end felt very half developed, at best. To be fair, it was so obviously the start of a series, so I'm sure they'll be developed more in later books.. Let's talk about the love interest. A romance develops between Jade and Connor, and while it definitely had its sweet moments, I never felt like it was as developed as it claimed to be. For starters, when the book began I honestly thought Connor was a girl.

The way he talked about high school life sucking, and being invisible, and wanting to be with the popular kids, just made him seem like an insecure teenage girl. Once he became friends with Jade, that toned down a lot, which is good. I wouldn't say that Connor and Jade's relationship is insta-love, but it does develop too quickly, and I think this is a result of the short length of the book pages.

When their relationship started almost transitioning from friendship to romance, I thought it was pretty sweet and that they were cute together. But then, suddenly, they're thinking about how they love each other. It's like the romance just jolted forward and I never quite caught up to it. I think the romance would have been a lot better if the book was longer and if the relationship had more time to properly develop. Connor and Jade were friends for a while before they loved each other, but they were never really "boyfriend and girlfriend" in between those stages. For me, Ashes and Ice was an okay book, but I think people who are better able to connect to Jade and the romance will enjoy it a lot more.

Sep 04, Brooke The Cover Contessa rated it really liked it. This has in no way influenced my opinion or review. Instead, she finds a boy who doesn't offer I want to thank the author, Rochelle Maya Callen, and Lady Amber Tours, for providing me an ARC ecopy of this book to read and give an honest review. Sometimes, all that is left are Ashes and Ice The first time I saw the cover of this book, I immediately added it to my TBR, without even reading the blurb.

Look how totally gorgeous it is! How could you resist a cover such as this? Then I read the blurb and it totally piqued my interest. I will say that I am not one to usually read blurbs because I don't want them to influence how the book comes across. But I can honestly say that this blurb is so mysterious, it only made me want to get my hands on the book much more quickly. And have no doubts, this book sucks you in pretty quickly and gets you raring to go and find out what is going on! The characters are well developed. I felt a connection with them almost immediately.

I love how the story is told from dual POV of the male and female characters. It gives such an interesting perspective. Jade is an interesting character. She's sort of empty at first, which is totally understandable. And throughout the story she gets filled up, as Callen reveals more and more about who and what she is. There is a vulnerability about her that mixes well with the independence she exudes. I felt sorry for her and wanted her to figure herself out. She's a very strong character. She rarely has those teen angst moments, which often turn me off.

At the same time, she's quite shy and does have insecurities that surprised me. Conner, well, he's this kind of geeky, out of place guy who keeps to himself. He's not popular, but he's not unpopular. He's kind of just there. I love his relationship with his mom.

He also has a sadness to him, related to the death of his father, which had me drawn in immediately. He's got an open wound and he's needed someone to heal it. Jade fits the bill. But she pushes him away, aware that there is more to her than what he sees. This only causes him to be more curious and long for her even more. Dominic is a total control freak. At first, he's just this annoying guy who thinks he's all that. But it soon becomes painfully obvious that there is more to him than just his cocky exterior. He is evil to the core and he's a total distraction to Jade.

I have to say that their relationship was quite confusing to me, why she would be drawn to him in the first place. But then as her character is revealed you understand the connection. I feel ike there could have been more hints or reveals a bit earlier without actually giving the entire plot away. But all in all I was captivated by the story and I really didn't want to put it down. It was refreshingly different, not something I could figure out at all as I was reading. I liked that the mystery was not easy to figure out. I hate knowing what is going to happen before the end of the book.

This story will keep you on the edge of your seat. Keep you wanting to turn the pages, keep you wanting to come back for more. I enjoyed the read and I am really looking forward to the next installment in this series. Nov 28, Sabrina Olteanu rated it it was amazing. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Ashes and Ice tells the story of Jade, a girl who has no memory. They both need each other more than they realize. After leaving a new friend, she ends up living with a kind woman who tries her best to care for Jade. I tumb I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review. I tumble forward, my palms scraping the hard pavement. I look at them, scratched and bloody.

Pain throbs in the center of my hands. Then, the throb dulls and the blood and cut skin heal, leaving soft, flawless flesh. I hate these hands. Connor isn't in with the cool crowd and is surprised when Jade wants to talk to him. As their friendship blossoms, Jade hears more voices and blacks out more often.

Another problem is bodies seem to be piling up from a serial killer and they seem to be coming for Jade. She often wakes up with blood in her hands, not knowing how it got there. She needs to get her memory back and soon, but it's always evading her. I could say I am so effing awesome everyone wants to be me or be with me.

I could say that, but, of course, it would be a total load of shit. About Rochelle Maya Callen. I laugh way too loud. I am convinced that I will never have a good even tan.

The original Callan, as written, did indeed have a conscience but always preferred a quick and reliable solution guns and bullets to soul-searching. When the author, Mitchell, was approached to turn the story into a TV series, he did something very unusual. Where other authors will usually blame someone else for interfering with their work, Mitchell re-imagined Callan entirely on his own initiative, turning a man of action into man of conflict. With hindsight it was a brilliant decision. While we may never know what the British public would have thought of Callan as originally conceived remember that TV violence was very stylized at the time, look at the Avengers, or Batman in the US they simply fell in love with the re-imagined Callan as a soul-searching and reluctant spy.

The show was 1 for several years and ultimately a much pudgier Woodward shuffled off to America to attempt to re-create the Callan persona for US tastes.
