Memories of Ash – Intisar Khanani

5 Stars

My one and only complaint about the first book in this series, Sunbolt, was that it was too short. Thankfully, Memories of Ash has rectified that problem and is fully novel-length. 

Hitomi adventures through forest and sand, and performs feats of magic. cunning and cleverness that surprise even her. She finds allies in surprising places.

Memories of Ash was another fantastic read, and I am now going to go find and devour everything else by Ms. Khanani while I wait for the unnamed book 3.

Hitomi’s adventures are a fun read. The central theme of “honor” that runs throughout the story is a strong driving force both for the character(s) and the plot. I can’t wait to see where the rest of the story goes.

Memories of Ash is the second in The Sunbolt Chronicles.
