It has been a while since I read a Savannah Stewart book, and Graceful Ashes was a great book to get back to her with.

You know that saying "if you love someone set them free, if they come back it was meant to be."

That could pretty much be Zoey and Hendrix's story.

Zoey has been quite sheltered, and her life revolves around dance.

Hendrix is the bad boy, surrounded by darkness that piques her interest and turns her world upside down.

Their story is definitely not all hearts and flowers.

While I was cheering for Zoey for finally stepping out of her comfort zone, for finding new friends and tackling new experiences, I just wanted to slap some sense into her. She fell so far down the rabbit hole I had to wonder if she would ever come back.

Decisions made by both Zoey and Hendrix, while at times questionable, were also understandable. Such hurt in their pasts was always going to affect them, and it was a journey to find out if/how they would come through the other side.

While at times my heart broke for our lovelies, it was also filled with hope that they would find what they needed to move forward.

Ms Stewart drew me into the whirlwind that was Zoey and Hendrix's life and I just couldn't stop reading until I knew what happened. The story flowed well, I was invested in the characters, and just had to know what happened next.

I look forward to seeing what Ms Stewart brings us next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, poignant, and unexpected! 17 March 2016
By B from Prisoners of Print - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 Stars - Graceful Ashes steps outside of Savannah Stewart’s normal realm of heart wrenching romance and dabbles in the darkness, delivering a story that is powerful and completely unexpected. After meeting Zoey as the vibrant, sweet little girl in Graceful Scars, I was curious to see how Savannah planned on developing this character. She certainly did not disappoint, writing a driven, complicated, and deeply conflicted woman with big dreams and an even bigger heart. Zoey’s life has been carefully regimented, focused entirely on becoming a professional dancer, until Hendrix comes along thrusting Zoey into a world of chaos and life-altering consequences. As these opposite personalities collide, Savannah Stewart utilizes their stark contrast to develop an instant connection and a sizzling chemistry. A truly enigmatic couple, Hendrix and Zoey brought out the worst and the best in one another resulting in an unforgettable journey.

The growth we see in Zoey over the course of this novel was absolutely stunning. I never could have predicted the path of this character’s personal journey nor could I have prepared myself for the emotional impact of her story. I loved the risks that Savannah took with this character and her story, unafraid to explore the seedy, broken side of love and life. As Zoey is forced to rewrite her dreams, Savannah Stewart allows her readers to experience the never-ending hurricane of emotions right alongside this character. My heart ached and soared, breaking and being put back together repeatedly over the course of this story. Hendrix added an entirely different emotional component to this novel. With him I lived in extremes: outrageous anger towards his selfish and destructive behavior and absolute adoration for the unwavering love he felt for Zoey and the future he was determined to carve out for them. Between the whiplash from Hendrix’s highs and lows and Zoey’s heartbreaking vulnerability, Savannah Stewart has left me reeling.

Graceful Ashes takes on the new adult genre from a different angle, allowing the reader to experience a gritty, raw, and unpolished path of self-discovery and the consequences we face in finding out who we really are. Not only did Savannah Stewart knock me off my feet with her daring storyline and unconventional characters, but she also left me absolutely breathless with the strength and hope she infused throughout this novel. Graceful Ashes is well paced, occasionally jumping forward in the timeline to maintain the fluidity of the storytelling and keep the readers engaged in Zoey and Hendrix’s journey. Savannah Stewart’s writing continues to grow, taking on an easy and casual style that allowed me to relate effortlessly to her words. Savannah paints a brilliant picture of life, love, and learning to forgive that definitely stuck with me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Will you be able to rise from the ashes? 12 May 2016
By JreaderLee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
We first meet Zoey Fisher in Graceful Scars as a young girl. She is now grown up and her dream of going to school at Julliard has come true. She has worked hard her entire life to be a dancer. Leaving her family to move to New York was not easy for her, but she has done it. She stays focused on her dancing and not socializing. Coming back from a from class late, one of the girls in her building is having a party. Enter Hendrix. She feels this pull to him and as much as she tries to stay away from him, he keeps appearing in her life. The studious girl is slipping away as she gets pulled more and more into Hendrix’s world of drugs and partying.
Zoey’s life is turned upside down and her dreams are shattered. Will she have a second chance to reclaim that dream after all the mistakes she has made. What will Talon and Tegan think of her after all this?
I enjoyed the story and it kept me wanting to read and learn more. There were plenty of times when you saw the mistakes that Zoey was making you just wanted to reach into your kindle and shake some sense into her. There were times when I felt the storyline had some unanswered questions or missing pieces of information, which is one of the reasons I’m not able to give this a five star review. The other reason is because there were just too many typing errors, duplicate words in the same sentence or punctuation errors that caused me to have to stop and reread things taking away from being wrapped up and lost in this story.
The interactions with Clara and being able to catch up with Talon and Tegan from where their story ended in Graceful Scars were great.
I hope that Clara gets her own story.
I read and reviewed this story for Kylie’s Fiction Addiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brava Savannah!!! 25 March 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I LOVED this book. Having said that I have been waiting for over a year for said book. I LOVED the first book, "Graceful Scars" and started nagging and bugging the author for a sequel immediately after reading the first one. She was uncertain at the time but the book screamed sequel so I just kept pushing. When she announced she was going to write a book including some of the characters I have to admit I was happy but cautious. How dare she tamper with my guy and gal from book one! She was going to push the new story much further into the future. I adored the characters from the first book and wanted them to have additional family and I wanted, and wanted, and continued to want. Ms. Stewart did her fans proud with this book and more. She gave us our guy and gal from the first book BUT, even though they were present throughout the book, she made sure that another character was now taking center stage. I never give spoilers when I review a book and won't start now. I now agree with Ms. Stewart (as if I have any opinion as a non-author) that pushing the story forward in time added a much needed element to this book. She was able to add twists and turns that would not have been possible if she would have kept the story in its original time period. This story had it all and at the end I was a sobbing mess. She did not compromise what "she" knew she had to do with our gal. Our guy/guys OMG. I was all over the map at points during this book. Her characters were well developed and the story had me in emotional, happy, sad, sometimes all at once. We also, yet again, have a side character who needs HER OWN SEQUEL. I'll just get that tidbit out of the way as a tiny preemptive strike. Please. Especially as I still have questions. I will spill those to the author. Trust me on this...you can easily read this book as a stand-alone BUT you will really enjoy the first book along with this one. Ms. Stewart is one of those authors who is very responsive to her fans without compromising the fictional folks who live in her head. She should be extremely proud of herself and this work. I am not always the most easy reader to please in sequels. Would I have loved to have a longer epilogue...yes...but that is such a little picky point among a work of beauty. Brava Savannah!!! denise bailey

4.0 out of 5 stars About the choices that you have to make in this stage of life. 17 March 2016
By M. Addison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
My Rating: 4

While the characters are interesting and diverse in this book, they are also extremely flawed. Zoey, while being a very good girl and career focused was raised basically by her brother and completely sheltered in overprotected from the realities of life. Talon raised her almost like a daughter after they lost their parents in a tragic housefire many years before.

While hesitant to do so, Talon & his wife allow Zoe to move to New York on her own and attend Julliard to advance her career in dance. At the beginning of the book she is starting her second year of classes and is already facing some challenges in making friends in dealing with teachers.

Very early on, we meet Hendrix. You can tell almost right away that he and Zoey we will meet again... The attraction in the connection between them is extremely noticeable. He's a bit of a bad boy and probably not the best friend or boyfriend that Zoey should have right now. He is a very bad influence on her. And he's not the only person she meets that becomes a bad influence on her. She begins to change the course of her life and her goals in New York. From there the story just gets deeper and more genuine to real life and the choices that you have to make in this stage of life. I think that Zoey learned a lot about herself in this book and it was an interesting journey to read and follow.

The only part that I didn't really like was the author's personal style. The book reads like a conversation, and while I don't mind curse words... it was strange to see them so often in parts of the book that aren't even dialogue. It's the mc's thoughts, and it's kind of a turn off for me. I just didn't really like it. It felt like one huge monologue.

While reading the book that comes before this one isn't absolutely necessary I would definitely suggest it just so that you have the history of Zoe's life and her brother Talon and his wife. Very interesting take on love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, Follow Your Dreams, Second Chances 16 March 2016
By Angela DeMarco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Graceful Ashes is a story about finding oneself, learning to live on your own, believing in yourself. It's also about love, loss, family, and second chances. Savannah did a beautiful job writing this story. Don't expect all hearts and flowers this story pulls at your heartstrings.
Graceful Ashes follows the journey of Zoey Fisher, Zoey is Talon's little sister. We met Talon in Graceful Scars you don't have to read that one to follow this story, I would recommend reading it to experience the story and the family chemistry.

Zoey Fisher has lived a sheltered life her brother Talon is her only living family member left. He's always been their for her, taken care of her, protected her and supported her through everything. Dance is all Zoey knows she lives and breathes it. Not one to have many friends nor a boyfriend, none of that matters to her dance is her life. Arriving at Julliard in New York she's beyond excited and focused on her dance. She's ready to break away from the life she's lived sheltered and live on her own. Zoey's hopes and dreams are to become the very best dancer and no one will take that away from her, so she thought until someone comes in to her world and turns it upside down.

Hendrix has the bad boy persona, he's troubled by his past. He has no living family member left, he's alone with no one to turn to, Hendrix turns to the streets and drugs.
Until one day he meets a girl and she stirs something in him that he hasn't felt in a while. This one girl could potentially be a game changer.

When Zoey meets Hendrix right off the bat she knows he's bad news, but something in him piques her interest and she can't seem to stay away from him. Hendrix knows Zoey is sweet and innocent and should stay away from her, he can't something about her draws him to her.
Friendship and then a relationship forms for Zoey this is a new experience for her, one she has to learn how to balance Hendrix and her dance without one or both falling apart. Unfortunately things for Zoey don't go as planned and she finds herself doing things she has never done before causing her to fall down a hole so far that she may never come up from again. This is the time where my heart broke for her and if I could have slapped some sense into her I would have. Unforeseen circumstance find Zoey back at her home with her brother and sister in law life for Zoey life has changed and she feels she may never recover, her world has been shattered. Will she ever dance again or see Hendrix? Will her past and Hendrix past as well bond them together or will it break them apart? Hmm I wonder well read it for yourself and find out.
