Blurb (from Goodreads):
Asleep for a hundred years, awoken by a kiss, Aurora’s life was supposed to be a fairytale. But since discovering that loyalty to the crown and loyalty to her country are two very different things, Aurora knows she can only dream of happily ever after. Once the enchanted princess, savior of her people, she is now branded a traitor.

Aurora is determined to free her home from the king’s tyrannical rule, even if it means traveling across the sea to the kingdom of the handsome and devious Prince Finnegan—someone who seems to know far more about her magic than he should. However, Finnegan’s kingdom has perils of its own, and any help he gives Aurora will come at a price.

As Aurora and Finnegan work together to harness her power—something so fiery and dangerous that is as likely to destroy those close to Aurora as it is to save them—she begins to unravel the mysteries surrounding the curse that was placed on her over a century before…and uncover the truth about the destiny she was always meant to fulfill.

Brimming with captivating fantasy and life-threatening danger, the sequel to A Wicked Thing takes Sleeping Beauty on an adventure unlike any she’s ever had before.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kingdom of Ashes (A Wicked Thing, #2)
“I want you as an ally,”

This was an interesting story, and I liked the dragons!

I liked Aurora more in this book, she seemed much stronger, and more determined, and actually took charge instead of allowing other people to make decisions for her.

The storyline in this started out with Aurora fleeing, burning down the odd village (accidentally), and eventually escaping to another kingdom. We then got dragons!! And Aurora learning a bit about her magic and its connection to the dragons also. We had the evil witch show up, and a little bit of romance thrown in there too, and I did prefer this book to the first book in the series.

The ending to this was pretty good, and this looks like the end of the road for this series.

6.25 out of 10
