Bridget Blade is both a god with an insatiable desire for love and adoration and a human plagued by insecurities, fears, and anxieties. Unaware of her true divinity she longs for the kind of love and a happy family she’s never had. Her husband, Jeremy, though, seems more interested in turning her into a research project that he can commercialize.
When Bridget discovers her new abilities she revels in the discovery that she is a god. But her new powers attract unwanted attention and Bridget must fight for her independence and survival.
But when survival means giving up the adoration she craves Bridgett must confront the desires that drive her. Does she want freedom or does she want adoration? She can have one or the other, but not both.
My Review: 5-Stars
This is my second book for Ono. I love his writing!
Ono is such a talented writer! I love the cover of this book as much as the first book, and the writing is done very well. He knows what he’s doing with The Children of Clay Series. I get sucked into the story right away and stay there until the last page.
In Clay to Ashes, we pick up where we left off in The Clay Queen. Bridget survives the radiation blast with a few scars, but everyone wants a piece of her now. Four major governments want blood, people who lost loved ones want to kill her, and her own husband Jeremy is looking to make her a commodity. All she wants is love.
I love how he works in the elements of the religion. Ono’s world-building skills are beyond reproach.
I highly recommend The Clay Queen and Clay to Ashes to everyone!
