I’ll start off this post by saying Jenna is a friend, but I’m writing this post on my own. Any opinions shared here are all mine.
If you’re looking for a new book series to get into, I recommend checking out Hellion: Asylum of Ash. It’s the first book (basically a prequel), in a new supernatural based series by Jenna Lyn Wright. I’m not normally someone who reads a lot of supernatural related stories. If you know me, I’m more into true crime, and thriller related books. That’s just more my jam, but I’m glad I went out of my comfort zone and checked this out! Here’s a little snippet before I get going:
A demon, a witch, a werewolf, and a vampire get thrown into an asylum…
My parents hadn’t been my parents when I’d killed them. They’d come after me, their eyes gone black, their nails lengthened to claws, and their teeth filed down to razor-sharp points.
Screaming about demons with their blood on my hands had gotten me thrown into Ash City Asylum. Maybe I’m a demon, too. Maybe I’m crazy. Or maybe I’m not the only strange one in here…
My roommate is a self-professed witch, another girl threw a panicked fit about the full moon during dinner, and I caught an inmate with fangs sneaking a raw-meat midnight snack.
The thing is, my new friends have started coming back from their therapy sessions with their memories foggy and their bodies bruised. I’m beginning to realize that the truly dangerous creatures in here are the humans, and escape is our only option…
Asylum of Ash is an 18,500 word prequel to the upcoming HELLION series and introduces characters set to reoccur in the Counterfeit City Chronicles.
The book was a very easy read and I was pretty much hooked right away. While I might not read a lot of supernatural stories, I do love watching shows about ghosts, urban legends, and more. It just never translated over to the written word for some reason. I mean, besides “Goosebumps” or “Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark.” This story though has me very excited for the rest of the books to hit my Kindle. I felt connected to the characters right off the bat, and very curious about new characters who popped up near the end. I feel like the story could go in any direction. Normally I’m able to figure out angles and twists before they happen, but not this time. Honestly, this book makes me want to search out more stories in this genre. Maybe I’ve been missing out on some good shit because I’m too stuck on my bookshelf.
If you’re looking for a new series to get into, I highly recommend checking this out. The best part it’s only $2.99, or if you have Kindle Unlimited* you can find it there as well! Oh and guess what? You don’t have to wait long for the actual Book 1! Hellion: The Counterfeit City will be out January 1st, just in time to get started on your 2018 reading goals. That book will be $3.99 but that’s still a deal when some Kindle books are still the same price as a hardcover. If you want to learn more about Jenna, or the series, you can follow her Facebook page here. The covers for the series are all created by Karl Slominski.
No idea what Kindle Unlimited is? You get the freedom to explore over 1 million titles, thousands of audiobooks, and current magazines on any device for just $9.99 a month. I’ve used it before and it was a great way to find new books to check out, or catch up on those popular titles you just never got around to reading.
