Peek Inside Ashes

Journalist Ambrosia Pellerin accepts an assignment involving the legendary phoenix, expecting, if nothing else, a little entertainment. Instead, she winds up pregnant—by a surprisingly human-looking firebird, Reece Bennu. As Ambrosia’s due date grows closer, so do the soon-to-be parents. But will their tentative love survive the prejudice of Reece’s disapproving grandmother, who will stop at nothing to tear the two apart?

Accidents happen for a reason…

Journalist Ambrosia Pellerin accepts an assignment involving the legendary phoenix, expecting, if nothing else, a little entertainment. Instead, she winds up pregnant—by a surprisingly human-looking firebird, Reece Bennu.

As the Phoenix prince, Reece is next in line to the throne and expected to marry a purebred royal. A common human such as Ambrosia is not in the cards. He swears, though, he’ll never be an absentee father.

As Ambrosia’s due date grows closer, so do the soon-to-be parents. But will their tentative love survive the prejudice of Reece’s grandmother, who will stop at nothing to tear the two apart?


"This fascinating world captures the imagination with unique elements and bewitching mythology that grips the reader and doesn’t let go. I really enjoyed this book and hope that the author writes more books about the mythological firebird world. " - EVampire, Amazon review

Originally Reviewed For: Tea and Book

I have come to the conclusion that author Sarah Gilman has a gift. Her unique storylines alone can capture a reader's attention. Add to that, well developed characters and wings and you just can't miss. Yes, you read that correctly, I said wings. Sarah seems to h ...more

Oh wow.
So this would have to be a 3.5 star read.

When I saw this, I really thought it'd be sorta fluff and basically cliché.
Surprise, surprise. It wasn't and boy did I have a grand old time reading this.

I can count the number of Phoenix books I've read on one hand. Completely novel a concept, yet ...more

Ambrosia is a journalist and her job is to find the truth. On assignment after the legendary phoenix she is sure she will just find a story that isn't true. When she is attacked, she gets saved by a strange man and sees him die. Later on she finds out she is pregnant. If that wasn't a shock enough s ...more

I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review!

I absolutely loved Ashes by Sarah Gilman. The storyline was unique, you don't come across many books from the paranormal genre that feature a phoenix. I loved the idea of a phoenix that can shift at will to human from the minute I rea ...more

By Nicola April 01, 2014

This was a great easy read. The fact that our hero is a phoenix made for a refreshing and different paranormal romance and because of the associated elements of sun, heat and fire it wasn't by any means 'dark'. I just wish it had been longer as I was left wanting more.

Having discovered they are to b ...more

I was given an ARC by Entangled Covet in exchange for an honest review. This was the first book by Sarah Gilman for me, and I'll definitely check out her books in the future. I'm the type that when I like I book, I tend to finish it one sitting. I did that with Ashes. I really liked the fact that sh ...more

When Ambrosia Pellerin is attacked and left for dead, she seeks help at an isolated farm house in the desert of New Mexico. She didn't know this would change the course of her life. The man who helped her was Reece Bennu. He is a Phoenix and royalty to his community of shapeshifters. Now she is preg ...more

By Patricia December 13, 2013

The imaginations authors have will never cease to amaze me. Meet hot pheonix guy...he burst into flames and the next thing you know you're now pregnant without the actual enjoyment of the act. As you can imagine there are sure to be many obstacles along the way. This was definitely a new concept for ...more

I received an arc of this book and I'm glad I requested it. This was my first time reading about Phoenix's and I really enjoyed the story and characters.

Reece is a Phoenix about to rebirth, when ambrosia knocks on his door in distress, talk about bad timing!

Reece is lovely, but his honest almost to ...more

My heart is on fire right now. It's 2:30 in the morning. I couldn't sleep after this book grabbed me by the throat and pulled me in. Phoenix's, fire, trees, flying, romance, heat, family, and discovery are racing through my brain. Of all the stories Gilman has written, this is my favorite...which I ...more

By Kae December 25, 2013

I really liked this book from beginning to end. There was no part that seemed slow or uninteresting. IT is not often that I find a book that has a new twist and when I do they are usually a let down. This book was so far from that!!!! A phoenix, a girl impregnated by ashes from his rebirth and a psy ...more

By Sapphyria January 04, 2014

Ashes is a great paranormal story that features a non-traditional creature....the Phoenix.

The story starts out in New Mexico. Ambrosia Pellerin is hot on the trail of an explorer who claims to have proof of the existence of the mythological creature knows as the phoenix. After approaching the man, ...more

By Denise December 30, 2013

I was drawn to this book by the story line that you do not find alot. In the paranormal genre you have alot of vampires and shifters and demons but not many contain mythical creatures from long ago. The phoenix story alone is interesting and to have someone write a romance with it is again what caug ...more

Ambrosia almost gets killed in the desert where she briefly meets a stranger who helps her with tenderness. The encounter ends in tragedy. Suddenly, she finds herself alone and pregnant. The worst thing of all is that she's never had sex with this gorgeous man blubbering about firebirds that burst i ...more

By Marta December 30, 2013

Wow what a unique book from this new to me author. I have read quite a few shifter type books but I don't recall reading about a Phoenix before well unless you count Fawkes from the Harry Potter books! So this book was an irresistible one for me and I'm really pleased that I gave it a go.

This is the first book that I have read involving Phoenix. I really love the whole mythos behind these unusual creatures and it was a nice break from the standard fare of wolf and big cat shifters.

The story starts out with our heroine Ambrosia showing up at the hero's house after an attack by a man ...more

This book is a fascinating and intriguing paranormal romance with refreshing and entertaining shifters.

Ashes was very a pleasing surprise for me. I found it to be a sweet and exciting PNR with a new kind of shifter for me - a phoenix. With PNRs being my preferred genre, it’s not often I come across new and unique shifter so when the opportunity is offered, I jump. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters ...more

Review: Four stars for Sarah Gilman’s Ashes, a flaming HOT, fascinating read!

ASHES by Sarah Gilman is the first book by this author that I’ve read, but certainly not the last.

The story of the Phoenix, the bird that is reborn time and again from fire, is one that is both fascinating and also the prem ...more

We have so many great books that came out in December of this year and ASHES is right there at the top with many others. I wanted to read ASHES because it sounded unique and it was that and more.

Ashes (Entangled Covet) Sarah Gilman
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I hadn't realised this book was so short, I tend to avoid those, feeling they don't really allow the reader time to get deep into the story, and I like to be fully immersed in the plot and characters. What attracted me and ma ...more

When a journalist checking out a story gets attacked and left for dead and manages to walk to a somewhat safe haven in the middle of nowhere, nobody would have gotten her to believe what would have happened next. And she’s a journalist! Well the next thing she knows is that the guy who attacked her ...more

The only fault I could find with this book was that I wish it had been seemed to go way too fast! This is the first book I've read of a phoenix shifter and yeah, I'm gonna go there, it was hot!

By Miriam January 03, 2014

***Received from Entangled Publishing for an honest review***

Reece and Ambrosia are as different as night and day--he's a phoenix, she's a human--yet they share one commonality throughout their story: the need to rise above their circumstances to accept a destiny they are meant to have.

This story, a ...more
