|Reviews for From the Ashes: Pyre|
| MiranDuranDa chapter 9 . 12/22/2016
The idea for this story is interesting, but I feel like it's missing but a lot of the glue stories need between major plot points. I understand that good authors "play time," meaning that they can extend an instant or breeze over a decade, but I feel like the stitching that holds the major events together and makes the story coherent is missing. One instant he's almost making up with Rivak, the next he's summoned to war, the next he's fallen in that war, then he's faced with death, demcas, and suddenly he's back in school with an inept trainer and a dead not-quite-boyfriend. It's all a bit too rushed to get immersed in.

I need more! Too much goodness has me an addict. The beasts, the babies, the romance, the pig headed king and needed tamer training reform. I need more. Please be kind to your readers and begging the next book soon. Much love.

Boy do you know how to rip someone's heart out then replace it with two. I cried till I had a headache and now I feel like dancing and singing from the mountain tops! There is just no way to top this. Sylass should be their new official God.

I hate the idea of someone being able to hear or see all my thoughts, so I understand Sarae ' al's anger.

A. I love you, you're an amazing writer.
B. I hate you for ripping my fucking heart out with Rizka's death
C. I really enjoyed your world building, what with the differences between Kelmarin and Ell-something, Ellnavian? Culture.
D. This is supposed to be a review, so my one criticism is that Master Old Guy seems to be kind of a caricature, or a stereotype. Also, tiny Mage kid showing up out of nowhere was weird. Like, you could probably have made him a little different than lil!Serae'al.
E. How the fuck do you pronounce his name?! I've been pronouncing it Suh-Ray-Ull in my head, although I also considered See-Rye-Ail

Please post the sequel soon. I'm dying of anticipation here. T_T Please and thank you.

I liked this...a lot.
Everything in here just kind of clicked. Like the fact that phoenixes and dragons were different genders of the same species? Genius. And those underdeveloped front feet, while strange, made perfect sense. The characters were wonderful and their persinalities were so real. (Searea 'al's mother being my favorite "other" character). I look forward to the next installment. Keep up the great work! :)
Thanks for the pronunciation tip at the very beginning. Or the hero's name would have sounded like "Cereal" in my head. XD

This was a very interesting story. The concepts of demon carrier and the phoenix-dragon dynamic were quite original. I admit that I liked the YA flavor of the beginning, and that the original relationship between Sylass and Serae'al was what captivated me most. This changed as the characters grew more independent, and I kind of missed that close relationship by the end. In fact the m/m romance itself seemed to fall into the background in the beginning of the story and the ending was more about Rivak and Serae'al. On the whole, it was a well-balanced story of growth. I enjoyed it a great deal, and I look forward to the next book.
