ASHES by Arlene Webb gets LADYBUGGED
Some believe it to be IMMORTAL, perhaps
MYTHICAL and why not? It has been around for a very long time, hasn't it? OR, could it be just very long lived when held up and compared against our own standards of what life is?
There are hints of this creatures presence in
hieroglyphs etched within the stories of ancient life in Egypt. It is also visible on well preserved, but crumbling parchments being found as history pulls back the shrouds that have kept it hidden throughout these many millennium. It can also be found in the oral stories told generation to generation by
The People who long ago settled the lands that make up our world.
I, Ladybug Lin, have always been fascinated with the unveiling...no...that's not really accurate...the REDISCOVERING...of what once was, and perhaps may well still
The PHOENIX has found a new host in Arlene Webb's epoch tale
Fire in any form can be a scary element, but fire living inside your own body...THAT'S beyond scary.I could not put this powerful book down. I found myself resenting life for pulling me away to do the daily chores one must perform to exist in the real world. This is a vivid place Arlene Webb created.
ASHES is a brilliant story that will take your breath away and keep it.
To give her less than FIVE STARS would be an injustice I will not commit.
Well Done Ms. Webb...
