Ashes (Book 2 The Kindred Series)

Book 2, The Kindred

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Edited by Leslie Mitchell at G2 Freelance Editing and re-released 8/20/13.

For the past four years, Cassie has only known vampires as her enemy. With the revelation of Devon’s true nature, she must come to terms with the fact that not everything she knows is right, especially when the true source of her Hunter powers is revealed. Slowly, Cassie begins to unravel the mystery that enshrouds Devon as the bond between them intensifies. When a woman from his past walks into their present, Cassie realizes there are far more layers to Devon than she ever realized. Layers that may very well destroy her, and everyone she loves.
Thrown off by the new arrival in their town, and struggling to survive, Cassie isn't prepared for the devastating blow that leaves the world she knows nothing but a pile of ashes. Ashes that may give rise to something else inside of her, something not entirely human.

Good story line, definitely needs professional editing

This book has a good story line, however, the grammatical errors are atrocious and really detract and distract from the story line. "Wearily" is not the same as "Warily" and the possessive form of a word is not the same as the plural, "to" and "too", "their" and "they're". The "wearily" was the most distracting for me though. This series would be great if it had been edited.


I consider myself strict when it comes to grammatical errors, and I usually get hung up on them while reading. I can't deny that there are multiple errors that easily could have been fixed by having an editor read through. Or a friend who's obsessive about grammar (like me!). My point is, this series - books 1,2, & 3 ( haven't gotten to 4 yet) are awesome. I don't get hung up on the mistakes, it doesn't distract me, and I literally cannot wait to read the next book. This series is addictive & I love it.


Even the second time around really good, a must read!
