I have to start off by saying I didn’t read the first one in the series, but I didn’t get lost due to the fact. I really don’t know why but for some reason I didn’t love but I didn’t hate this book, and that’s why I decided on the rating of 3 out of 5 stars. Favorite character would have to be Gabriel, I really enjoyed his points of views better than Christine. I am really having a hard time figuring out what to say about this book for the review. I do have to say I liked how the book end and things that happened I wasn’t expecting. So that’s why I didn’t give the book a lower rating. And I also loved the plotline. I asked and was granted access too an e-book copy of this book. For the purpose of reading it as part of a book tour. I would love to say thanks to all parties involved for this awesome opportunity

The Tiger’s Watch (Ashes of Gold #1) by Julia Ember Publication Date: August 22, 2017 Publisher: Harmony Ink Press
Sixteen-year-old Tashi has spent their life training as a inhabitor, a soldier who spies and kills using a bonded animal. When the capital falls after a brutal siege, Tashi flees to a remote monastery to hide. But the invading army turns the monastery into a hospital, and Tashi catches the eye of Xian, the regiment’s fearless young commander. Tashi spies on Xian’s every move. In front of his men, Xian seems dangerous, even sadistic, but Tashi discovers a more vulnerable side of the enemy commander—a side that draws them to Xian. When their spying unveils that everything they’ve been taught is a lie, Tashi faces an impossible choice: save their country or the boy they’re growing to love. Though Tashi grapples with their decision, their volatile bonded tiger doesn’t question her allegiances. Katala slaughters Xian’s soldiers, leading the enemy to hunt her. But an inhabitor’s bond to their animal is for life—if Katala dies, so will Tashi.
Originally from Chicago, Julia Ember now resides in Edinburgh, Scotland. She spends her days working in the book trade and her nights writing teen fantasy novels. Her hobbies include riding horses, starting far too many craft projects, PokemonGo and looking after her city-based menagerie of pets with names from Harry Potter. Luna Lovegood and Sirius Black the cats currently run her life. Julia is a polyamorous, bisexual writer. She regularly takes part in events for queer teens, including those organised by the Scottish Booktrust and LGBT Youth Scotland. A world traveler since childhood, she has now visited more than sixty countries. Her travels inspire the fantasy worlds she creates, though she populates them with magic and monsters. Julia began her writing career at the age of nine, when her short story about two princesses and their horses won a contest in Touch magazine. In 2016, she published her first novel, Unicorn Tracks, which also focused on two girls and their equines, albeit those with horns. Her second novel, The Seafarer’s Kiss will be released by Interlude Press in May 2017. The book was heavily influenced by Julia’s postgraduate work in Medieval Literature at The University of St. Andrews. It is now responsible for her total obsession with beluga whales. In August 2017, her third novel and the start of her first series, Tiger’s Watch, will come out with Harmony Ink Press. In writing Tiger’s Watch, Julia has taken her love of cats to a new level.

If I’d known I was going to die on my sixteenth birthday, I probably would’ve spent a little time on my makeup that morning. As it was, I lay in the field, cold, and all I could think was that I hadn’t even bothered to run a brush through my hair before I left. I mean, at the very least, I could’ve worn earrings. It started to rain, softly at first, and I felt my teeth chattering. No, not felt. Heard. I heard something else, too. Jared sobbing. Loudly.It was funny—I’d known him all my life, and I’d never heard him cry before. Would he be crying so desperately if he hadn’t been the one who shot me?
My Review I really thought the book was very strange but it was a fun and interesting book. Rachel I thought was an interesting character and what a change of life she had after she was shot by her friend. I also enjoyed her new friend Tyler and thought he was very interesting as well. I thought they were cute together. I really thought it’s interesting how Rachel got the powers and why they were needed. The bad things that Tyler, Rachel, and company had to fight where very interesting. There are betrayals that take place in the book. I loved that the book didn’t end in a cliffhanger but leaves room for other books to come. I asked to take part in the book tour and my opinions are my own. I would definitely recommend this book and I would read more book’s by this author. AUTHOR INFO: When she’s not donning her secret identity and saving the world, Thiessen keeps busy writing her next novel, reading something beautiful, teaching high school English, drinking coffee, cycling, and hanging out with her family – husband, kiddies, and miniature schnauzer.

Very interesting start so far I really love the heroine Jet, and I am loving Will as well. I love that the main character can talk and understand animals. And also that the animals talk back. I love how hard Jet is trying to fit in, and that she has insecurities like everyone else. And I am really loving Jet and Will’s interactions, and how he likes to tease her. Trying to figure out some of the other characters such as Charlotte or Charlie as she is called. As well as Morwenna.. I don’t trust Morwenna at all that, I guess I will hopefully find out if I am wrong or right in regards to her. Charlie I feel is going to be the one that starts out as being one thing but turns out totally different.
I guess you can’t give all books 4 or 5 stars. I thought I would really enjoy this book more, so I guess that’s why I am sad that I couldn’t give this book such a score. I did finish the book but I skipped about 50 pgs, and I hate doing that.
Owen is such a sweetie and of course he was my favorite, I loved the dream he has and I hope it happens for him. I also really started to like Hanne more but I hate that it took until almost the end of the book for that to happen. I still didn’t care that much for her sister Sissel, hopefully in other books she starts to be so less fragile and help around more. Maybe that will come when she gets her power whatever that may be.
I did like the ending and I also hope Owen and Hanne get a happy ending. And I hope the rest of Hanne’s family gets a happy ending as well. I also loved that it didn’t end in a cliffhanger, but leaves things open ended.
I would love to think the Author and publisher as well as Netgalley for granting me my request for this book. My grade for this book is my own and no one else’s.
I think I will read the next one whenever it comes out even with my low rating for the first book. Because I do want to see what happens next in the book.
Starting to w a little bit better, just still not that much action and adventure that I like to have in books that I read. Of course people are getting killed, but I thought there would be more deaths then what their have been. I am sure that more individuals will die before this book is over.
I do like Owen just like I thought I would, I am not sure if his going to be one of my book boyfriends. I just think his to sweet, and I like a guy that is more sure of themselves, and has a little bit of some bad boy in them. I also like Hanne’s family but Sissel gets on my nerves, I hope she gets better in this book, to me so far she seems pretty fragile.
I am still trying to finish this book though, just to see how this one ends.
