The Beautiful Ashes

Book 1, A Broken Destiny Novel - A Paranormal Romance Novel

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


In a world of shadows, anything is possible. Except escaping your fate. 

Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse—her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her. 

Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn't mean he can change his fate…no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy. Together they search for the powerful relic that can save her sister, but Adrian knows what Ivy doesn't: that every step brings Ivy closer to the truth about her own destiny, and a war that could doom the world. Sooner or later, it will be Ivy on one side and Adrian on the other. And nothing but ashes in between….

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 29, 2014 – Frost's fast-paced paranormal romantic thriller is a pure stunner. Ivy is already overwhelmed by dealing with her parents' death and the disappearance of her sister, Jasmine. The last thing she needs is Adrian, an undeniably handsome stranger, telling her that the visions that she's had since childhood are completely real and Jasmine has been kidnapped by demons. Soon, Ivy is on an epic adventure of Biblical proportions. She comes from the line of King David and can see into demon realms as well as destroy demons. Adrian isn't a demon, but he's the sworn enemy of the Davidians. Nonetheless, the attraction between them is too intense to ignore. As Ivy searches for the one weapon that might let her save her sister, she slowly comes to grips with her place in this archaic and never-ending war. Frost (Once Burned) skillfully balances passion and peril in an attention-grabbing story that's exciting from the first page. The mythos is intriguing and inventive. Readers will hungrily anticipate the next installment.

Customer Reviews

As great as promised

I preordered this book based on the recommendation of Kate Daniels creators, Ilona Andrews. It was all that was promised and more. The world building was done quickly and smoothly so you felt you were there almost as soon as the book started. Each character was well defined but left with much growth. Ms. Frost also did not fail to keep the reader involved with humor, suspense, murder, loss, and of course, romance. A definite urban fantasy with romance as a side. Angels, demons, humans, and other creatures of the supernatural, mythical world are found here. Cannot wait for the next challenge that Ivy has been given!


Grrrrr!! I don't WANNA wait for the next one! Gimmie gimmie!! I love this author so much I would buy her books without any idea of the storyline because I know I would never be disappointed.
