E of reclaiming her throne lost she realizes that surviving is no longer enough But she does have a weapon her mind is sharper than any sword And power isn't always won on the battlefieldFor ten years the Ash Princess has seen her land pillaged and her people enslaved That all ends her. So earlier this year I took a trip to the south of France notably the P rigord which is filled with lovely relaxed people with sun kissed skin and floaty skirts a nice contrast to my jumpy pasty ass I was in the middle of an existential crisis and musing over whether or not to uit my job and become a starving artist and The Results May Surprise You While I was there I went to this antiues shop filled with retro fridges and dusty comics and amazing vinyl albums from the 80 s from before I was even born my dudes which makes me look like a foetus or whatever Anyway I was agonising over this fucking incredible standing lamp with an old aged leather lampshade teeth clenched over the 150 price tag but Okay Let me paint you a picture here The lamp was about my height and the lampshade was at the top of course but it was balanced on this handmade ye olde globe and the globe was being held up by a faux gold almost life sized sculpture of Atlas It was like a blend of everything I love good light to read by inaccurate old timey maps and Greek mythology I was just standing over this lamp a thread of drool wetting the front of my sweaty t shirt it was upwards of thirty degrees all week and that s not safe for a pale Celtic weirdo like me trying not to reach into my purse for my credit card Eventually I talked myself out of it Okay that s a lie I tore myself away from it like one might tear a glob of gum from their hair because that lamp would look so fucking good in my flat next to the K 2SO figurine and the red thread pinned into the plasterboard and the giant snail in the tank in the living room I kept cursing it cursing how poor I am until I came across a cardboard box full of no not false nails or chicken feet No It was full of carnivale masks They weren t the lamp but they were pretty cool I dithered between two of them one with a big velvet ruff and covered in bells and another smaller one with a salty little smirk on her face I eventually chose the one with the bells and it was only like 15 which was acceptable Jesus Christ it wasn t the damn lamp but it would do I liked it It took me a while to get the mask home because there wasn t enough room in my luggage but some weeks later I was balancing on the back of the ugly pink armchair one eye on the TV watching Kurzgesagt and trying not to press a push pin through my finger Then the mask was up and it looks cool and but le sigh I ll never forget about the lamp It will live on in my heart forever So here s the thing When you read this next part you ll probably envision me tapping away at my crumb filled 2012 MacBook next to my giant snail surrounded by crystals and dusty ornaments and sporting a tin foil hat and save for the tin foil hat you re not wrong The point is that on the Ghoul Boys scale I m not a Boogara but nor am I a Shaniac I m sort of in the middle and I have my own theories and all I m saying is HEAR ME OUT It started on the day that the mask arrived in my home On that day I experienced my very first lucid dream It was one of the most terrifying things I ve ever fucking witnessed and someday if anyone s interested I ll talk about it I took notes down on my phone the second I woke up but I needn t have bothered I remember the dream so vividly and I also remember the absolutely paralysing fear that I experienced I know it was a lucid dream and within the dream I was aware that I was dreaming I said the words to myself inside my head I am in a dream But it was baffling visceral and indescribably frightening I woke up feeling like I had already lived through a day The full story is for another time but that s still notable Something changed when the mask went up on the wall I was sitting in the living room watching Friends and drawing with my crusty old tablet and I heard the shoeboxes in my bedroom stir like they were being shuffled around My flat is fairly small and the front door opens out to a short hallway with the bedroom to the left and the living room to the right the noise was therefore loud enough for me to hear over my roaring laughter at the timeless joy of everyone s favourite 90 s sitcom and two albeit open doors An important thing to note here is that there are only two shoeboxes and they re fairly big so it s not easy for them to topple I texted my sister about this and she seemed spooked At the time surprisingly I wasn t worried I also woke up the morning after the shoebox incident with blinding lateral foot pain that was so bad I couldn t walk though I had run 4km the day prior to that so I put it down to overexercise Though I should mention that I had completed that same 4km run many times before with no trouble and had also been exercising uite diligently for weeks before that so Make of it what you will A couple of days later I was lying in bed at about 9am scrolling through Tumblr and I heard a funny clattering in the bathroom like something being knocked by an elbow Now my bathroom is stacked absolutely full of useless crap including but not limited to empty toothpaste boxes empty shampoo bottles face masks 40 vol bleach bottles a dying orchid and like eight pairs of sunglasses so it s easy to turn around and knock stuff over I glanced at the door then went back to scrolling on Tumblr Whatever dude Don t hate me but I tend to write off any paranormal experiences that start with I had just woken up Sleep messes with your mind guys Stuff like false awakening and sleep paralysis can seriously dick around with your perception of reality I ve experienced false awakening before and later discovered after some extensive research that what I thought was a crazy paranormal experience was just my brain tricking me into thinking I had three arms I m always open to suggestion but I tend to take anything that happens just after waking up from REM sleep with a big big pinch of salt What makes me pause on this is that I woke up at 8am and had been solidly awake but lying in bed for about an hour scrolling through social media when this happened Last night just after I had settled down to sleep I heard what sounded like the fridge door closing This gave me pause because before I go to bed I obsessively check the locks on the door check to make sure the sockets are off at the wall check to make sure the taps are off and check to make sure the fridge and freezer are shut This is a ritual because if I haven t double and sometimes triple checked these things then I lie awake all night getting anxious about it I did these checks of course and then the fridge door shut Okay My flat has been sweltering all summer It s still warm outside My flat is now cold Throughout the entire summer whenever I opened a window flies and bees and wasps always buzzed inside and annoyed the crap out of me The windows have been open every day since the mask entered my home and I have not seen a single bug There are creaks and small movements in the night I wake every now and again at between 3 and 5am though I usually sleep like a corpse Am I imagining it Probably But I ve seen and heard enough creepy shit in my life to believe that there s out there than what we can see And I had prepared throughout my years for something of this ilk to happen to me I had imagined what it might be to live alone and wonder if maybe I wasn t really as alone as I thought Every time I pictured it I saw myself terrified and unable to sleep and back in my old childhood home where I could not shake the feeling of being watched But the thing is that I just honestly don t give a damn I m stressed and trying to break into publishing is a fucking disaster and I m just like okay Whatever You can haunt my home if you want to as long as you stay in your corner and I stay in mine Just don t break anything and we re cool I can sit at my weird hoofed coffee table and write and this thing whatever it is if it even exists can pulse away inside that mask that feels like it s staring at me as long as it doesn t scare my friends or pick at the wallpaper It s cool I m fine with it Let s just both move on with our lives and coexist You were wondering where the book comes in rightI feel the same way about this book as I do about the mask The book s very pretty but its contents aren t to my taste That said I don t harbour any ill feeling towards it Some years ago I d have hissed and spat at this book for being so simplistic and depressing and at the same time boring and expected elemental magic Really Come on It s 20gayteen but now as a grown woman I m fine with it It s whatever It was very very standard YA fare and I doubt I ll remember it in 6 weeks time It ll sit on my bookshelf no not a shelf just a stack on the floor and as long as it doesn t fall and crush my toe or anything then it can do its thing and I ll do mine I can move on from it and forget about it and lament nothing about my time with it It was blah and thinner than rice paper but I really can t force myself to care Maybe I should be pissed off about the book than the ghost but the ghost cost 15 and the book only set me back like 799 The ghost is a better investment probably but given the barren fucking wasteland that is my life right now I d say they re both eually irrelevant The only thing I m cheesed about is the collective 2135 I paid for a very low key haunting and a long eye roll Thanks Brexit

Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother the Fire ueen was murdered before her eyes On that day the Kaiser took Theodosia's family her land and her name Theo was crowned Ash Princess a title of shame to bear in her new life as a prisonerFor ten years Theo has been. I hope you will not fall off your chair if I tell you that you have read this story beforeMaybe once or twice or a hundred of times but you most certainly have Girl loses kingdom and family Girl wants kingdom back and boy helps her Girl manipulates her way surprisingly mainly into instead of out of trouble Nothing stands out Not even the idea of multiple gods and goddesses and gems that hold power that can be used by and on people There is the illusion of a world building but it is just that an illusionSo while you ve read this story before it s true that you haven t read it from Theo s point of view In the beginning I was sure I would love it After all unlike most fantasy YA heroines Theo pretends to be weak and a damsel in distressThe pretending entertained me Except when you think about it whether she is aware of her own manipulative actions like faking fear to let a guy protect her or not it remains that she isn t acting all that differently from other fantasy YA heroines I simply don t care Now I don t mean that I want Theo to crumble and turn to real ashes but if my powers of prediction are correct that is not going to happen Otherwise there s no story to tell and so I don t care to read the whole trilogy Pssst I can also read hands for a small feeOh wait did I forget to mention that there s a love triangle Surprise Now you ve fallen completely haven t you Well indeed there is A very wait for it predictable and annoying one What a waste of a really amazing cover oh and potential Though was there potential to begin with The only reason I read it is because I have a thing for princess stories or so I have claimed recentlyBut now I feel like a fraud Grrr I might have to rethink my preferences Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin

    Is it better to have your life ended by someone who hates you or someone who loves you? Ash Princess has a heroine desperately trying to reclaim her stolen throne a mindlessly evil tyrant who stole said throne and a love triangle What's that you say? You've heard this one before? Yeah me too That being said to give credit where it's due it stands out for being compulsively readable and entertainingPlot and ch

    Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian is the first book in the young adult fantasy series Ash Princess Trilogy This is one that is on the darker side with violence abuse slavery and a hint of rape so beware to those with issues with these triggers
