Blog Tour: Out of the Ashes [Maji 01] by L.A. Casey!

Publication date: 11th July 2017
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: For Nova, a twenty-three-year-old survivalist, wandering a barren wasteland was a lonely existence. But her day-to-day life was about to drastically change forever. Gone were the days when her only worries were rabid animals, augmented humans, the unforgiving scorching sun, and rogue watchmen. Now, Nova found herself faced with a new threat, and he was tall, grey, and horribly stubborn.

For Kol, a two-hundred-year-old daredevil, sailing the never-ending waves of deep space was a vast and thrilling life to lead. He had one objective on Earth—rescue as many human females as possible and return them to his home planet. It was supposed to be simple, but no one told Kol that a human female’s tongue could slice a male like a blade. His charge was short, strikingly attractive, and she talked way too much.

Nova wasn’t going to be kidnapped without putting up a fight, but Kol was more than ready to go toe to toe with her. These two species set out on a collision course that would redefine the phrase "The Big Bang" forever.

I've only read one other book from this author, and it was a contemporary book, so this book obviously being paranormal was going to be completely different and have a different feel to it! I was really excited when I first heard about this book because I love paranormal books and I knew that this book sort of focused on aliens, so it made me even more excited for it! I started my ARC as soon as I received it and I honestly couldn't put this book down until I had finished it! I read the first half in one sitting and then I wanted to keep reading, but I would have been up all night if I had lol! The plot developed at the perfect pace and I loved the paranormal, dystopian feel to it! It also had plenty of romance and some action and suspense in it, which I loved! There were some really, really hot scenes in the plot too and the sexual tension between the main character and her love interest leaked off the pages! I just loved the plot and it got better and better as it progressed! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Nova was the main character, and in this book she had been through a lot! My heart completely went out to her because she had lived through so much in her life and lost everyone she knew, but yet she kept going and she worked her backside off to survive the best she could! Nova's environment also completely changed in this book and I could understand why she was sometimes snarky or very defensive! Nova came a long way in this book though and she grew a lot as a character! I also loved how Nova stood up to her love interest and she didn't take any crap from him! Kol was the love interest of Nova! I loved Kol a lot in this book! There was something about him that intrigued me as soon as he was introduced and he never failed to impress me as the book progressed, even though he did say the wrong thing a few times! Kol was also seriously hot and very protective of Nova! I could completely understand why he was, as his kind adored their mates and cherished them! I also respected Kol a lot in this book as he didn't let people treat him like a prince and he wanted to be treated like everyone else! This book was only written from Nova's point of view, which surprised me a little because the synopsis made it sound like it was going to be written from dual point of view! It would have been amazing if it had been written from Kol's point of view too, so that I could get inside his head, but I did love this book only being written from Nova's point of view though! I also can't wait to read the next book in this series! I'm not sure if it's going to be about different characters, which is a big possibility lol, or continue Nova and Kol's story! I'll be reading it regardless and can't wait for it to release! I'm also going to check out this author's other books that I haven't read yet too! The cover for this book is amazing! It definitely drew me to the book and it made me want to read the story behind it! It suits the book perfectly too! Big thank you to L.A. Casey for an ARC of Out of the Ashes and to Love Affair With Fiction for having me on the Blog Tour!
