The Breathtaker Saga – Meet Ash

Leave a comment

The release of Deep Breather, the third book in the Breathtaker saga, is right around the corner! Three days, to be exact.

To tide over fans of the saga until the release, I’ve been doing some fun posts to introduce readers to the characters from the book, since I happen to have most of them documented in picture-form on Pinterest.

Today we’re meeting Ash!

Ash 1

Ash is a very special character to me. He’s an old-fashioned bloke thrust into the crazy, chaotic modern world, trying to deal with being brought back from the dead after the love of his life inadvertently killed him, nearly a century ago. Having taken his life-force for herself, she is still alive, and there to welcome him back. It’s not every day that a man gets a second chance with the woman who killed him, ay?

That and other things make Ash’s character a very interesting character to write. He is good, and troubled, and noble, and conflicted. Old-fashioned, but very down to earth. Maybe a little bit awkward, but you’d never really know it,  because he has a very assured sense of self, and makes most things about others than himself anyway. (Namely Breya, of course, as she’s caught up in far more madness even than he has been thrust into, and he loves her like every girl ought to be loved.)

And isn’t he handsome to look at? 🙂
