New Release+Review: Out Of The Ashes by L.A. Casey

Title: Out of the Ashes
Series: Maji, Book 1
Genre: Science Fiction, Romance

LA Casey brings her readers OUT OF THE ASHES — the first Sci FiRomance book in a new series of sexy standalone novels. These other world alphas are looking for their perfect mates that can bring them to their knees… and human women fit their criteria perfectly.


For Nova, a twenty-three-year-old survivalist, wandering a barren wasteland was a lonely existence. But her day-to-day life was about to drastically change forever. Gone were the days when her only worries were rabid animals, augmented humans, the unforgiving scorching sun, and rogue watchmen. Now, Nova found herself faced with a new threat, and he was tall, grey, and horribly stubborn. 
For Kol, a two-hundred-year-old daredevil, sailing the never-ending waves of deep space was a vast and thrilling life to lead. He had one objective on Earth—rescue as many human females as possible and return them to his home planet. It was supposed to be simple, but no one told Kol that a human female’s tongue could slice a male like a blade. His charge was short, strikingly attractive, and she talked way too much. 
Nova wasn’t going to be kidnapped without putting up a fight, but Kol was more than ready to go toe to toe with her. These two species set out on a collision course that would redefine the phrase “The Big Bang” forever.

Nova is young woman surviving on Earth in the year 2115.  After wars and illness took all her family, she’s been alone and doing what she knows to stay alive since the age of 16.  The sun is dying and the Earth is dying with it.
Kol is the leader of a party of Maji, an alien species as endangered as the humans, who are on Earth trying to gather as many willing young and healthy females they can, to rescue and incorporate them to the society on their own planet.
They’re meeting is unorthodox and, though the Maji rescue her from certain death and heal her, Nova is not one to trust anyone which is how she’s kept herself alive since her father passed away.  She’ll make it hard on them, she’ll try to run away, but Kol is determined to bring the “little one” with them and maybe offer her more than a new home.  Will Nova let go of her fear and open herself to the possibility of the new life the Maji are offering?
I don’t read science fiction.  It’s not my thing and I picked this book as a way to open myself to yet another genre, but I was pleasantly surprised after only the first chapter.
Out of the Ashes is fun, entertaining and, at times, swoon worthy.  Nova and Kol are strong and stubborn and they will clash constantly.  They both rely on their instincts, he because it’s “the Maji way” and her because it’s what’s kept her alive for years after she found herself alone.  I really liked them individually and as a couple and I have some real love for some of the secondary characters met on this intergalactic adventure.
The story has an easy flow, it’s full of LOL moments and I was more than impressed by the details of the spacecraft, the new planet and the customs of the Maji people.  I felt more than once as if I was watching a movie rather than reading and I loved the feeling.  I’d recommend this book whether you are a die-hard fan or new to sci-fi.

*ARC REVIEW*


I swayed from side to side as my pain and shock became too much for me. I focused my blurring vision dead ahead and made out six dark figures walking toward me. Six huge figures. When they stopped a few metres from me, they stared at me, and me at them. They were fully clothed in a black armour of some kind, and it only made them look that much more intimidating.
The man in the front said something in a language that didn’t sound of this planet, and without thinking, I stammered, “Wh-what?”
The man grunted and turned to his right and spoke to the person behind him in that same strange language.
“No,” the man behind replied in strained English. “We’ve practiced for weeks; you have not. You need to learn how to speak the human languages to make this mission easier, just until we fit them with translators of their own. Do what I told you to do. Repeat what your translator says through your comm, and the female will understand you like you can understand me right now. I’m not responding to you anymore unless you use this particular human language.”
With a defeated sigh, the large man turned back in my direction.
“I sa-said,” he rumbled in a bizarre accent as he switched to an extremely choppy version of English, pausing every couple of words as if he was trying to form them as he spoke. “What ‘re … you ‘oing … out … ‘ere?”
After he had spoken, he removed the mask that covered his face. The now well-lit area shone brightly on his face and revealed all I needed to know about him to be terrified. He had vibrant grey skin, dazzling violet eyes, and menacing sharp teeth with gold caps on them. That was the moment I dropped to the ground like a sack of potatoes and began tumbling into darkness.
“Why do fe-females … ‘eep ‘oing … dat ‘round me?” the Maji asked with a tired sigh.
Without missing a beat, the other voice said, “I told you that you were ugly. How many human females must faint before you until you realise that?”
