For Nova, a twenty-three-year-old survivalist, wandering a barren wasteland was a lonely existence. But her day-to-day life was about to drastically change forever. Gone were the days when her only worries were rabid animals, augmented humans, the unforgiving scorching sun, and rogue watchmen. Now, Nova found herself faced with a new threat, and he was tall, grey, and horribly stubborn.
For Kol, a two-hundred-year-old daredevil, sailing the never-ending waves of deep space was a vast and thrilling life to lead. He had one objective on Earth—rescue as many human females as possible and return them to his home planet. It was supposed to be simple, but no one told Kol that a human female’s tongue could slice a male like a blade. His charge was short, strikingly attractive, and she talked way too much.
Nova wasn’t going to be kidnapped without putting up a fight, but Kol was more than ready to go toe to toe with her. These two species set out on a collision course that would redefine the phrase “The Big Bang” forever.

I’m always looking for something different and good to please my vast tastes and not afraid to take a chance on something new and exciting. I must admit when I saw the email that announced this title. I was curious as L.A. Casey is known to me for her contemporaries in particular Frozen which I loved and enjoyed. So this definitely fell into the category of something different and I couldn’t wait to read this novel.
I wasn’t disappointed to say the least about things.
Out of Ashes is the type sci –fi/ post –apocalyptic novel I love to read and enjoy in general. However Casey has a novel of substances, she has all the elements there but she gives it her spin on things. That means we were going to get a whole bunch of characters to fall in love with and root for.
It hard not to fall in love with the leads of the novel , even though at times you have to wonder really did that just happen. Like many other stories, set in this genre. Humans are having issues with Earth. In this case , the sun is dying and things have been out of control on Earth .
For Nova, our sassy kick ass heroine who isn’t afraid of things. Well most of the time . She has been trying to survive and grapple with the live she has. It hard when you are a single female trying to fend for yourself . She has adapted and made things liveable for her but she is weary and she barely in her twenties.
So what makes a woman like her do what she does. A desperate one and the moment we read those words. Things are going to be interesting as all parties sure know how to make an entrance.
As we get to introduced to Kol and the Maji. He is no ordinary guy to say the least. An alien obviously no surprise come to help the humans of Earth. He is the total threat. As he gets under Nova nose like non other and he can take her sass and crazy ideas. As Nova doesn’t have anything on his race’s women or do she?
You have to read to find out more . But this typical Casey affair so the women are totally what you expect to be and the men willing to cater to those needs and more. I do like the contrasts though and the challenges Casey painstaking made obvious and I love how some how Nova always got her herself involved. Despite everything she still a kind and generous heart and I love how she was a always people person first most .
Leaving poor Kol to deal with things and oh poor guy. Nova wasn’t the easiest person to handle. There was so much going on and honestly I was loving it. There was never a dull moment and I loved how Kol was willing. He maybe alpha male like Nova said but this guy well you want to claim him for yourself. …..
Well all Maji really. Whilst I did wish we get to see a little more of the post barren wasteland that Earth had to become before things got going. I enjoyed reading about the Maji and learning about this beautiful world that Casey has created. It was a fun entertaining read and I enjoyed reading it .
Please don’t keep this reader hanging. I need another book soon as I enjoyed this first book and I’m curious to what happen next given the potential storylines that were planted in this novel. Casey‘s first scifi novel is one not to be missed and definitely an intriguing read
