Summary:  More than three months have passed since Arson and Emery were taken. Taken and then separated. And experimented on. Salvation Asylum is more like a prison than a psychiatric facility. Unknowingly, Arson has become a vital instrument in a campaign set to genetically alter mankind. Enraged, confused, trapped, and unable to fully manifest his abilities, he wonders if he will ever see Emery again. His new existence is one crawling with questions. Is Grandma alive? Where does the fire come from? Can he become more than a monster? In Ashes, book two of the ARSON series, nightmare and reality collide as Arson must embrace what he is and the haunting realization that there may be others out there, others like him.


This book in a small way reminds me of Possession by Elena Johnson, in that Arson is taken because of his special abilities and they want to use him as a weapon of sorts.

I did like this book it was fast paced and I always wanted to know what was going to happen next. I also liked all of the characters and how seamlessly they were put together. I enjoyed learning about his parents and their trials as well and seeing and understanding the motivations of the scientists.

Overall a good book that I think would appeal to boy and girls alike.
