Ashes of Gold by J. Elle is teen fiction but heavily focused on fantasy with ties to our world. The book is a continuation of Rue’s journey to reclaim Ghizon from the Chancellor and give it back to the Ghizoni people. Not only does Rue struggle in the fight against the Chancellor, she also struggles to connect with her people and herself. I love the compelling plot and the character growth in this book. The way that Elle builds the world of Ghizon in relationship to our world and adds connecting elements between the worlds is beautiful. Overall I enjoyed the book.
