Ashes - Kelly Cozy

Jennifer Thomson was having a fairly normal day until the bomb went off.  She survived the terrorist attack by the skin of her teeth, but a photo of her being rescued from the rubble became the single most iconic image of the event.  And that was when the trouble really started.


Meanwhile Sean Kincade, a former covert operative, watched the whole attack and Jennifer’s rescue on TV.  Sick to death of his unwanted retirement in suburbia anyway, he decided to take matters into his own, highly skilled hands.


While I usually only mention steempunky things on this blog, I’m making an exception for this fantastic Author.  Sure, there’s no airships or goggles, but the story is tight, sophisticated, and riveting.  The story follows the protagonists in two separate timelines, much like Boneshaker by Cherie Priest (See!  Steampunk reference!), which only makes the two feel all the more closely connected throughout the book.


Kelly Cozy is not the type to pull punches.  Reading this book is like watching 24: you’ll need a pillow to hide behind, but you won’t take your eyes off the screen for an instant.  And if you’re anything like me, you’ll be hooked by the first bomb blast.  Even if this type of book isn’t your normal fare, I highly recommend it as a thrilling, thought-provoking, and deeply emotional page-turner.
