Last year Xoe's life was turned upside-down. Things haven't improved much. With the lives of her friends at risk, Xoe forgets to worry about another life...her own. With the reappearance of a face from her very distant past, and a random string of abductions to deal with, Xoe has to fight to keep things together. Even if 'together' is a far cry, ahem...howl, from the norm.

Xoe's life is anything but normal after all she's the daughter of a powerful demon. One of her best friends is still dealing with being a werewolf and she's dating a vampire. However, their lives are threatened when werewolves and witches are disappearing up the coast. Worried that Xoe may be in danger her father sends a young demon to keep an eye on her and protect her. 

Xoe's got her plate full as her friends want to make her the alpha of their little pack so they can get set up with the werewolf coalition. She doesn't need the threat of being abducted but it comes knocking taking her friends. What's a demon to do but go against her father's wishes and hunt them down even if it means risking herself. 

I love Xoe so much she's such a great character. Willing to take on the role of an alpha werewolves pack so her friends will safe. I admit that I like Jason he may be a vampire but he's the added support she needs as she risks her life for her friends. I wasn't sure about Lela as we only had a little glimpse of her in the prior book but she's proven her loyalties. 

Accidental Ashes starts right after the end of the first book Xoe: or Vampires, and Werewolves, and Demons, Oh My! I actually just finished the first one a few weeks ago and haven't stopped thinking of Xoe's world. Xoe and her friend's worlds have changed dramatically in just a short time and continue to evolve. I truly enjoyed every page and actually finished the book in just a few short house. I love the characters they are easy to connect with you can't help cheering them on. The author has done a beautiful job creating a captivating story which is unique and exciting. I enjoyed Accidental Ashes it was hard to put down and I ended up finishing it in one session. I highly recommend for fans of Young Adult Urban Fantasy. I can't wait to see what's going to happen next as she's going to have to accept her demon side.
