Para aqueles que estavam ansiosos para conhecer essa história e universo, vou deixar aqui a ordem de leitura da série De Sangue e Cinzas pra vocês devorarem os livros de forma cronológica.
De Sangue e Cinzas
Prestes a completar 19 anos, Poppy se prepara para sua Ascensão. Quer dizer, Poppy é preparada para sua Ascensão, já que, como tudo mais em sua vida, ela não tem opção senão Ascender. Sendo a Donzela, ela será entregue aos deuses de qualquer forma, seja lá o que isso signifique.
Destinada a salvar Solis dos Atlantes, que amaldiçoaram o reino com a criação dos terríveis Vorazes, Poppy não entende o que está por vir e nem sabe se está pronta para ser entregue aos tais deuses ou, ainda, se sequer deseja fazê-lo. Privada de todas as escolhas, sendo inclusive obrigada a cobrir o rosto com um véu e impedida de conversar com qualquer pessoa além de uma dama de companhia designada pela Corte, Poppy leva uma vida solitária.
Mas o que ela quer mesmo é lutar ao lado dos guardas e conseguir se proteger das criaturas que ameaçam o reino, as mesmas que mataram seus pais. Com um aliado secreto e uma habilidade rara, Poppy tem um vislumbre da vida que poderia ter se fosse livre do fardo de ser a Donzela. Mas com a entrada de Hawke Flynn em sua vida, o mundo de Poppy vira de cabeça para baixo e ela corre o risco de ser arrebatada por tudo o que sempre lhe disseram ser proibido.
Lançada em uma intrincada rede de mentiras, traições e desejo, ela vê todas as suas certezas começarem a ruir. Qual será o lado certo da história? E será que há mesmo um lado certo? Em meio a tantas reviravoltas e dilemas, o futuro de Poppy está cada vez mais incerto e perigoso, e a vida de dois reinos está em suas mãos.
A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire
Is Love Stronger Than Vengeance?
Everything Poppy has ever believed in is a lie, including the man she was falling in love with. Thrust among those who see her as a symbol of a monstrous kingdom, she barely knows who she is without the veil of the Maiden. But what she does know is that nothing is as dangerous to her as him. The Dark One. The Prince of Atlantia. He wants her to fight him, and that’s one order she’s more than happy to obey. He may have taken her, but he will never have her.
Casteel Da’Neer is known by many names and many faces. His lies are as seductive as his touch. His truths as sensual as his bite. Poppy knows better than to trust him. He needs her alive, healthy, and whole to achieve his goals. But he’s the only way for her to get what she wants—to find her brother Ian and see for herself if he has become a soulless Ascended. Working with Casteel instead of against him presents its own risks. He still tempts her with every breath, offering up all she’s ever wanted. Casteel has plans for her. Ones that could expose her to unimaginable pleasure and unfathomable pain. Plans that will force her to look beyond everything she thought she knew about herself—about him. Plans that could bind their lives together in unexpected ways that neither kingdom is prepared for. And she’s far too reckless, too hungry, to resist the temptation.
But unrest has grown in Atlantia as they await the return of their Prince. Whispers of war have become stronger, and Poppy is at the very heart of it all. The King wants to use her to send a message. The Descenters want her dead. The wolven are growing more unpredictable. And as her abilities to feel pain and emotion begin to grow and strengthen, the Atlantians start to fear her. Dark secrets are at play, ones steeped in the blood-drenched sins of two kingdoms that would do anything to keep the truth hidden. But when the earth begins to shake, and the skies start to bleed, it may already be too late.
The Crown of Gilded Bones
She’s been the victim and the survivor…
Poppy never dreamed she would find the love she’s found with Prince Casteel. She wants to revel in her happiness but first they must free his brother and find hers. It’s a dangerous mission and one with far-reaching consequences neither dreamed of. Because Poppy is the Chosen, the Blessed. The true ruler of Atlantia. She carries the blood of the King of Gods within her. By right the crown and the kingdom are hers.
The enemy and the warrior…
Poppy has only ever wanted to control her own life, not the lives of others, but now she must choose to either forsake her birthright or seize the gilded crown and become the Queen of Flesh and Fire. But as the kingdoms’ dark sins and blood-drenched secrets finally unravel, a long-forgotten power rises to pose a genuine threat. And they will stop at nothing to ensure that the crown never sits upon Poppy’s head.
A lover and heartmate…
But the greatest threat to them and to Atlantia is what awaits in the far west, where the Queen of Blood and Ash has her own plans, ones she has waited hundreds of years to carry out. Poppy and Casteel must consider the impossible—travel to the Lands of the Gods and wake the King himself. And as shocking secrets and the harshest betrayals come to light, and enemies emerge to threaten everything Poppy and Casteel have fought for, they will discover just how far they are willing to go for their people—and each other.
And now she will become Queen…
