I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Strange, but not bad.

The Beautiful Ashes - Jeaniene Frost

The heroine reads like the young Cat.


And her love interest is unworldly beautiful. He is so gorgeous that we get told how beautiful his face is over and over again.


And the plot moves back and forth between those.


The book tried to be funny, example:

I closed my eyes. Either I let my sister rot, or I had to run around freezing demon realms wearing te equivalent of a leather bikini. How had this become my life?

"Let's get the bondage lizard party started, then," I finally said, opening my eyes."


And it is funny - sometimes.


I am not so sure, that I will follow this series, although the author tried very hard to make it orignial and interesting and went to biblical backstories to give her world-building some colour.
