Being a vampire is a life-or-death situation. When I was first turned, I had only my survival to worry about. Now I'm locked in a battle for the existence of the entire human race - and the cards are definitely stacked against me.

The Voluntary Vampire Extinction Movement headquarters are destroyed, and their pet horror, the Oracle, is on the loose. She'll stop at nothing to turn the world into a vampire's paradise, even if it means helping the Soul Eater become a god and harnessing his power for her own evil ends.

An ancient vampire, a blood-sucking near deity and oh, yeah, my presently human former sire thrown into the mix. I say bring it on. May the best monster win.

    " Carrie and Nathan's have been far from any sort of happily ever after scenario. In the short months that they've known each other, he has re-sired her as a vampire, they have been put under the scrutiny of the Voluntary Vampire Extinction Movement for various crimes, people they care about have died, not all of them have stayed dead, bounty hunters have pursued them, they've betrayed each other, and all that pales in comparison to what is on the horizon. The Soul-Eater is still out there forming his evil plans, but now, he is working both with and against the Oracle, an ancient being whose lust for revenge is millenia old. For the sake of the world and for each other, Carrie and Nathan have to stop them, and that means putting aside old grudges and jealousy. Therefore, Cyrus is needed, and he, too much set aside hatred. However, before Carrie can gain his help, things change again and she is forced to do something that will make both men she loves hate her. The story is just beginning then. From there on out, the complexity and emotional action only get more intense. ***** This series is one that only gets better. Readers should be prepared to be taken on a journey that will make them weep, yet want the story to never end despite or because of that. The ending is heart-shattering, yet I am already looking forward to the next story. ***** All are needy and in search of love, but not all of them are truly ready for it. The triangle with Carrie, Nathan and Cyrus continues, in fact the author even indulges in a menage dream sequence. But the dynamics between them shift as events take the three of them through changes. Reasons holding back not just those three, but Max and Bella too, from giving their love disappear. Events occur between Cyrus and Carrie that allow Cyrus/Carrie and Nathan/Carrie to approach each other from common ground. Max and Bella especially find a new beginning, as they undertake what looks like a fatal journey, when they acknowledge love inspite of their fear of rejection or loss. All these changes make for second chances for those that can survive. Ashes to Ashes carries forward the plot and the relationships from the previous books, but offers only a little in resolution. It turns out that there will be a fourth book in the series, All Soul's Night, out in June of next year. There's some setup for that here, as a character from the past reappears. One enemy is vanquished and another remains to be defeated next time. I couldn't find the page to quote it exactly but in this book, Bella says that every one has scars, and it is how one goes about trying to heal that matters. It will be interesting to see how the Bella, Max, Nathan and Carrie move toward healing in the next book. "

    " I could not finish this book. Ugh! "

    " Got ebook omnibus/bundle of this series. Made it thru most of second book. Past first chapter, despite liking author's earlier series, could not get into characters or the storyline. Skimmed chapters of rest and just never caught my interest. Was definitely "urban fantasy" and way too violent (senseless, bloody, and explicitly violent) to ever be suited to YA audience so at least was no Twilight wannabe kinda vampire book. That first chapter sample was very misleading. I do not like my characters so dumb or so violent. And the plot was such a confused morass that did not seem to resolve itself. "

    " Oh my gosh, Ziggy is back! Good book. I like the story line between Bella and Max. The triangle between Nathan, Carrie, and Cyrus was amusing as always. Ready to read the last book in this series of badassery. :) "

    " This is a good series. there are some spelling errors in every book so far but apart from that it is a good story behind it. Would recommend for any vampire lover. Jennifer Armintrout easily became a new fave author of mine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 10/16/2013

    " The series get better and better. Heroine growing (slowly) in confidence and maturity. Terribly poignant ending. "

    " So Cyrus is back. I just love his character. We get more of Max from this book as well. A real good read. "

    " Very good story. Not a slow moment. A lot of times, it felt too real. Very excited to read the final installment. "

    " I like this series, more for the compelling characters than the rather mundane world-building. Fans of vampire and werewolf fiction will enjoy the book. Lots of action, angst, romance, and not too much sex. "

    " not as good as the first 2 but i still gotta read the 4th one to see how it ends. somethin off about this one, i dont know. the whole book filled with nothin much then everything (no spoilers from me :P) important is shoved into the last 3 chapters? strange. "

    " The third book of the Blood Ties series was pretty good. I'm glad the author developed more characters and their own story line. Hopefully the fourth one is just as good. "

    " This series is heart-wrenching and sad. Not a series I would want to read again. it shows the struggles of having something thrust upon you and then when you get use to it your wish for it to go away is granted. Then you realize what you truly lost. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 8/7/2010

    " I was never bored with this series...not once in any book did I have to put it down to contemplate whether or not I should finish the book..Great job Ms. Armintrout! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 2/10/2010

    " Like I said, it gets better with every book and I literally can't put these books down! She has so monay hard choices- it must really suck to have two hot vamps want you so badly and not be able to make up your damn mind! "
