"Ashes to Ashes" by Carrie F. Shepherd is the second book of the Scribing of Ishitar series so its best to read book one first. This book, and it's predecessor, Fall From Grace, are a epic tale of Gods and demons, love and war. These type of books are often overwritten so that they aren't enjoyable to read, but Carrie manages to nail a tone that has a perfect balance of adventure, fiction, violence, sex and humour. I am loving this series and cannot wait for the next book. I just love the way the author writes. The plot is intriguing, the characters are wonderful, and the ending will leave you begging for more!
