Turns out Charlie Bennet was all of those things except the last. Don’t let the name fool you, Charlie was all woman and she wanted nothing to do with the ash … until the day she found out she was one.
It all started when infected bats bit a small group of humans and created what are now called vampires. Then, the male vampires knocked up some female humans and the result was a gorgeous race of all male ash. Superhuman freaks that had looks to kill.
Charlie is the first female ash, aka unicorn of the Hive – the gated compound in Portland that the humans have designated to isolate vampires and ash from society.
Problem? The Hive is full and only a select few will be allowed to live there. To live at all, really. If Charlie wants to earn the right to become a citizen of the Hive, she will have to survive the culling – a series of fights to the death. And guess what? Just because she’s a girl doesn’t mean she’ll get special treatment.
Good thing there’s Ryder, the mysterious lead ash enforcer, who seems to always have her back. But when secrets bubble to the surface, it will take more than one guy to save her.
Ash is the debut novel for Jaymin Eve's Hive Trilogy. The story line follows a very unqiue version of the creation of vampires. With the concept that infected bat were the cause of a viral breakout of vampires. Then creating a descendant of vampires called the Ash. This variation along was a bit to grasp as it is very different from you traditional story line. At times I felt as though it was slightly cheesy, but then I was so absorbed into the characters that I found it easier to overlook. Charlie is just one of several strong characters in this story, and I personally fell in love with almost all of the sexy six. Charlie and Ryder offer a very humorous dialect, and their budding relationship is electrifying. I can not by all accounts so that this was the best paranormal romance of my experience, but it was also not horrible. Ash really resides about medium for me on the rating and adventure scale. It is one that I would look to continue for curiosity of the path the series will follow. The next experience will most likely determine my future with this series.
