But if she confides in Dax, she fears he will never forgive her, not after all he sacrificed to help her vanquish Asair. Halen drowned Asair in a tornado of wings—at least, she thought she killed him. Why then does his mocking voice snake through her thoughts, enticing her to surrender her power? Maybe she screwed up—big time—but she will never allow Asair to control her magick.

Her life in balance, Halen must race time, purge the demon’s soul before flames consume the Earth or the Tari strike first.
5 ★ – EXCEPTIONALLY DAZZLING FROM START TO FINISH
Curses and Ash is even more enthralling than the first book. With magical creatures, edge of your seat action, secrets and betrayal that will break your heart, and danger lurking at every corner, this spellbinding adventure had me holding my breath until the end.
There’s no denying that I’m in love with this enchanting world. Duane beautifully created a wonderful and enticing story that I never want to end. There was so much excitement, heartbreak, tension, and insanely good twists and turns. My mind was a jumbled mess, and I didn’t know who was telling the truth or which way the story was going to go. There was never a boring moment for me and I absolutely loved not knowing what would happen next. And that ending… after that I just could not breathe! My emotions were all over the place and I couldn’t stop being anxious — so much so that I purchased the ebook for Smoke and Ruin as soon as I got home from work and read the first two chapters. Good thing I took a vacation day tomorrow (3/2) cause I’ll be staying up tonight (3/1) and reading Smoke and Ruin! I may even have finished by the time this review goes live).
The characters were fantastic and grew so much from the time they were introduced. Halen became quite powerful and more resilient. Even though she still wasn’t sure about her destiny, Halen was able to stand her ground and became the kind of heroine that I admire. Dax was more mysterious and a bit harsh sometimes that I don’t know how I feel about him now. Tage and Ezra made me laugh and cry. I have a soft spot for those two and rooted for them so hard. Asair was a fun complication that I couldn’t resist and I enjoyed getting to know him more. I also loved his interactions with Halen. And Natalie… well she’s totally badass in her own ways. I don’t want to say too much, but there were so many secrets about the characters that added more conflict and drama to the story and I LOVED IT! I may have had a change of heart a few times, but I definitely enjoyed all the surprises.
Tiffany Duane’s wicked imagination and gorgeous writing had me completely mesmerized. It’s exceptionally breathtaking, incredibly unique, and emotionally draining. Curses and Ash had everything that I love about fantasy books – fascinating creatures, fast-paced action, complicated relationships, exhilarating drama, complex characters, and unexpected twists. I really don’t want to leave this magical place just yet, but I’m also very excited to find out how it all ends.
If you’re looking for a series that will have you turning page after page, then add this to your TBR or even better… just pick up Coral and Bone and get started! I don’t know about you, but I’ll be curled up in bed with my Kindle and spending the night with Smoke and Ruin. I just hope my heart will still be in one piece when it’s all over.
