From The Ashes: a gripping psychological thriller (Ashes to Ashes Book 3) by Rowena Holloway – Review by Maura Harper

From The Ashes (Ashes to Ashes, #3)From The Ashes by Rowena Holloway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love the covers in this series. There is something about them that I was just drawn to. They have a unique feel to them and I think perfectly fits with the series.

FROM THE ASHES is the third and final book in the “Ashes to Ashes” series and it is my opinion that this series should be read in order. This author has a very distinctive writing style and tells a very detailed tale.

As with the other books in the series, I did find myself skimming a little bit because I wanted to know what was going on faster than I could read. This is a great psychological thriller and at times I was twisting and turning to figure out what was going on.

While this was my first series by this author, it will not be my last.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From the Ashes by Rowena Holloway is the conclusion of the Ashes to Ashes series. I highly recommend reading the first two books so you can follow the story. Holloway has been my new psychological thriller author. Her stories are captivating and engaging. Every time you think that the story will go this way, it will take a 180 degree turn. The characters are fully developed and complex, which allows you to follow them into every part of the story. Charlotte is that character. She is a journalist who just happens to stumble into a story of the Hall. She has a hard time because her eyes are not really looking at what is in front of her. She is trying to put a puzzle together. Will Charlotte find out what is going on at the Hall? Will it be too late? Sit back and enjoy the journey Charlotte will take you on.

I give From The Ashes – a gripping psychological thriller (Ashes to Ashes Book 3) by Rowena Holloway, 4 stars.
**This review may contain spoilers from previous books in the series.**

Charlotte had her career and life go up in smoke. Now she has decided to follow some possible leads and check out a brain injury clinic. The best way for her to do that it to get a job there. In reality, she needs the paycheck as much as she needs to find the truth. But the more she digs, the deeper the mystery appears. Plus it seems to tie into someone she can’t stop thinking about — Tyrone. Who is behind all the mysterious deaths? Can Charlotte get to the bottom of it in time? Are the people around her really what they seem?

The conclusion to this series, this is a superb book. It leads you off with the ending, then you go back and forth in the viewpoints of the different characters, following both what happens to lead up to the event and what happens directly after. The story is very gripping, you want to just who is to blame for everything, and I admit, I did not know until the end. Charlotte is a great character, she wants to know what is going on, but at the same time, she feels for these patients. Then there are the other people for whom we see viewpoints. Each and everyone different, but real. You are held on the edge of your seat until they can find out just who did it and why. I love this type of book.

If you enjoy psychological thrillers, this series and book are for you.

OMG Charlotte has been through quite a lot since we first met her back in book one. This series has taken me on quite the journey, and have all led to this point. I have loved each book, but I definitely think Ms. Holloway has left the best till last.
From the Ashes is the third, and final book in the Ashes to Ashes series by Rowena Holloway. It is an intense psychological thriller that will tie you up in knots with the tightly woven and twisty plot. I was on the edge of my seat for most of the story- scrambling to read as quickly as I could so I could unravel the mystery, and put all the pieces together, before the final reveal. But, I had so many scenarios running through my head- Ms. Holloway twisted and turned the plot so well that I was left guessing right till the end.
I loved the gripping suspense, psychological ploys, clever mystery, dramatic developments, heightened tension, and intense danger which Ms. Holloway managed to imbue her story with. She definitely knows how to weave a great tale, and keep her readers glued to the pages.
I was both excited, and a little sad to get my hands on this book- as I really wanted to continue Charlotte’s journey, but at the same time I knew that this would be the concluding chapter. So, it has been a bit of a bittersweet experience.
Charlotte Ashe is the main character , whom we have met in the previous book/s- and she enters this story having her life turned upside down. She’s been through so much- at the cost of her career, reputation, credibility, friendships, and even to a degree, her self-respect. She has one ‘play’ left- and she throws herself into it headfirst. Her continuing obsession with Tyrone Gardner leads her to Blaxon Hall, a private ‘clinic’, where her journalistic senses recognise the threads of a story. She needs this story to pan out, because she’s got a lot riding on the outcome. Charlotte uncovers some mystery surrounding the recent deaths at the hall- and this is where the story really ramps up in intensity and interest. Charlotte couldn’t possibly predict the ensuing events- placing herself in incredible danger along the way. What will she sacrifice in order to get to the bottom of this investigation? Because when a fire breaks out at the hall, Charlotte is one of the missing people, What happened, you ask? Well, I don’t want to spoil it for you- so I really recommend grabbing yourself a copy of this fantastic thriller, and discover all the gripping developments for yourself.
WOW… this story is definitely a clever, edge of your seat read- and as I expected, is another great story from Rowena Holloway. I really can’t wait to see what she does next!

Thank you, Ms. Holloway!

From The Ashes (Ashes to Ashes, #3)From The Ashes by Rowena Holloway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rowena Holloway has quickly become an author I can’t get enough of. I have been devouring her books a lot lately and the latest for me, From The Ashes, has to be one of my top favorites of hers. Holloway knows how to write some psychological and twisty suspense. I often feel as if my emotions are put through the ringer each time I embark on a journey with her books. I was on edge from the very beginning until that last bittersweet chapter. I can’t say enough good about the world building and attention to detail that is ever present in all of Rowena Holloway’s novels.

From The Ashes is book three of the Ashes to Ashes series, but they can be read as stand alone novels. I highly recommend that you read them all anyways! We get the story of Charlotte and she has a trippy road to take in this novel. Charlotte is a journalist seeking the truth about some questionable deaths at the Hall. As she starts to find things out and the closer she gets to the truth the crazier things seem. Just as they build to a head a fire leaves Charlotte among a group of missing people. I can assure you this one will have you reading just one more page, or till I figure this out, well past your bedtime! I know I was up well into the night because I just had to know what would come next. I can’t wait to see what will come next from the ever talented Rowena Holloway!
