The thing about reading a sequel is that you already know the characters and it is easier to get into the book, and that is how I felt about starting Blood Yellow. I met most of the characters in the first book, Blood Purple and this book flows straight on. Zayn is grieving as the two women in his life have turned their backs on him, and he is unsure how to get them back. He is confused as to what he should do and Nasir tries to get him to compose himself, but Zayn is beyond listening to anyone. Things change drastically after that and the drama begins!

Nikole decided to return to the cabin with Alec as she believes he is the man for her. They have been through so much together that she feels comfortable being around him. With the troubles at home, she soon decides to return to try and set things straight again. Alec is shrouded in mystery and Nikole struggles with finding a balance between her feelings for Alec and the duty to her people. Nikole amazes me, with all that she has been through already; she is not afraid to step up to the new challenges when needed.

Zayn began this book a little childish and I wanted to jump into it and slap him so that he would wake up to his senses!! But after a while, he started to step up and be the man and the leader he was born to be. He may be over protective, but he does that for the people that he holds closest to his heart. He is a great person and a fantastic leader to his people.

What I truly love about Ashley’s writing is how she can draw you right into the amazing world that she has produced. She has taken the Algula/Vampires and turned them into super humans. They have beating hearts, they have feelings and compassion. Being an Algula also means that they have a lot of the traits that normal Vampires do, but some of them are able to harness an element as their magic and that is what makes them unique. But they deal with a lot of the same issues that we do and I think that is why I connect to them so well.

Another feature that Ashley is incredible at is creating the Villains. They are some of the most evil people that I have ever read about; they are cold-hearted killers with only revenge on their minds. They have no respect for one another and will trample over anyone that stands in their way. I really hate them, and I have not felt that strongly about villains before! lol

Blood Yellow is a fantastic sequel, one moment things are coasting along calmly and then in the next minute, there is an emotional twist thrown in to change the direction of the story. It’s like being on an emotional merry-go-round! It has that shock factor that leaves you dazed for a few moments before quickly reading on to see what happens next, and then it happens all over again! Ashley writes descriptive bedroom scenes that had things warming up down here in Aus! And when you get to the end, you will be pulling your hair out! Argh!! You can’t end a book like that! What a cliff-hanger!! I am eagerly waiting Blood Green, I tell you!! Awesome work Ashley!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Ashley was born in Wichita, Kansas. She is the eldest of three. She has two brothers who she completely adores and who were the inspiration for her Alpha Lead Zayn. She has always enjoyed writing and using her creativity. This started at a young age in Kansas City, Missouri when her brother Ryan and her would take scraps of wood and paint different pictures on them. Eventually when her articulation of feelings and emotions gained depth she started writing Original Oratory while attending Clear Brook High School.

Ashley’s first novel, Blood Purple is based on Algula vampires who dwelled in the Middle East and were forced from their home. The idea for this series spurred from one evening of Ashley researching her nationality after talking with her Aunt Pam about where her family originated. She and one of her friends did research on the folklore of that part of the world and found there was very little information about the paranormal genre and how it tied into the Middle East. Ashley took this idea and ran with it.

Ashley is married and lives in Houston with her husband Tony. They have two dogs named Toto and Doogie. They have been together for almost 8 years and he brings her more joy than she could ever imagine as a child. She loves to read and has been hooked on the romance genre ever since her lifelong best friend Laura gave her "Ashes to Ashes' by Tami Hoag to read when they were younger.

Ashley finds her strength through her family, especially her parents. They always support her in life, they push her to strive for greatness. There once was a motto that Ashley heard in her youth through her Taekwondo life 'Reach for the Stars' and that is what Ashley has always done. It was through her upbringing that the values Ashley has and display's came from. With her Parents always cheering her on in life she was able to grow up having faith in herself and her ability to conquer the world.
