Only Ashes Remain
Only Ashes Remain by Rebecca Schaeffer is a book that absolutely holds readers as prisoners. Readers will inevitably find themselves enthralled by Nita's wrenching struggle for freedom. The black market still looms over like a heavy threat and only Nita's courage and determination will see her through.
"She was frightened of the uncertainty, of the depth of how much she had to do and how little she had."
"I imagine that meant a lot to you as a kid. Being praise for something everyone else saw as monstrous."
"She was alone and that was okay."

After escaping her kidnappers and destroying the black market where she was held captive, all Nita wants is to find a way to live her life without looking over her shoulder. But with a video of her ability to self-heal all over the dark web, Nita knows she’s still a prime target on the black market.
There’s only one way to keep herself safe.
Nita must make herself so feared that no one would ever dare come after her again. And the best way to start building her reputation? Take her revenge on Fabricio, the boy who sold Nita to her kidnappers. But killing Fabricio is harder than Nita thought it would be, even with Kovit by her side. Now caught in a game of kill or be killed, Nita will do whatever it takes to win.
