{Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway} Athena's Ashes (Star Thief Chronicles #2) by Jamie Grey

Publisher: Clever Crow Press
Release Date: August 26th 2014
Rate: 5/5 - I loved it!


It’s Renna’s biggest job yet – convincing MYTH leadership that she’s put away her lock picks and is ready to save the galaxy, despite the dangerous implant in her brain. But with the Athena on the run, she’s working solo and facing her most ruthless enemy, the traitor Pallas, who’ll go to any lengths to destroy the MYTH organization. Including framing Renna for a devastating assault on MYTH HQ that leaves their defenses crippled and hundreds dead. 

Now that MYTH believes she’s a dangerous double-agent, Renna escapes their firing squad before they put more holes in her than a pair of fishnet stockings. But the ticking time-bomb in her head is the one thing Pallas needs to complete his master plan and he’s not about to let her get away. Even worse, he’s discovered the only thing that will bring Renna to her knees – threatening Captain Nick Finn.

Out of time and options, Renna’s got one shot to take down the traitor before he annihilates everything she loves, even though winning this battle may cost her everything.

{Details} eARC, 350 pages. Published August 26th 2014 by Clever Crow Press (first published August 23rd 2014). Ebook provided in exchange for an honest review

{Rating} 5/5 - I loved it!

"For someone who was supposed to be the best thief in the galaxy, Renna had been spending entirely too much time locked up lately." (eARC, page 1, line 1)
Athena's Ashes is a fabulous follow up to The Star Thief. Well written, imaginative, exciting, with fabulous world building and full of so many characters I love - I loved seeing more of Viktis - including several strong female characters.

Renna becomes a more rounded character in Athena's Ashes where we see more of her past, see her strength of character and the lengths she's willing to go to in order to protect her new family. Yep, Renna the loner is no more. She has a family, people who depend on her and even more shocking - they trust her. At least for awhile.

Nothing is easy for Renna. She's facing the repercussions of the implant, of Pallas, of the struggle against the person who she was before - the way she reacts and the choices she made - and the consequences when tenuous trust is broken.

It's an exciting roller coaster ride of a story and Athena's Ashes wraps up in a satisfying manner while teasing what's coming in book three without the dreaded cliffhanger.
