Five stars for F.T. Lukens’ Ghosts & Ashes

Ghosts & AshesGhosts & Ashes by F.T. Lukens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It would be an understatement to say I was excited about book 2 in the Broken Moon series because book 1, The Star Host, was one of my favorite books of 2016. So I hoped Ghosts & Ashes would not disappoint. I’m happy to say Lukens met and exceeded my expectations this go around, and I’m eagerly awaiting book 3.

Despite Ren & Asher earning their freedom in The Star Host, Ghosts & Ashes is full of tension and questions about where everyone’s loyalties truly lie. Readers will be kept guessing until the last page… and beyond. Although G&A ends on a cliffhanger, it feels satisfactory in a way and will get you excited for the finale.

Ghosts & Ashes is a worthy and exciting follow-up to The Star Host. Fans of Star Wars and Firefly will love the Broken Moon series for its space opera-style storyline and memorable characters.
