From the Grave (Mackenzie Grey: Trials #1) by Karina Espinosa

From the Grave by Karina Espinosa
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A big thank you to Karina for sending me the ARC.

Based on what I just said, you know that I am a huge fan of Karina’s and I have had the opportunity to read and review her books before.

I have read and reviewed her Mackenzie Grey Origins series (there are 4 books in all) and I fell head over heels for the character. Kenzie is great and everything that I love in my heroines.

You cannot imagine, the amount of excitement when Karina was kind to tell me that I was getting my girl back!

Best Xmas pressie ever!!!

Just in case, I am going to say it, you could start with this book and read it, BUT trust me, you do not want to do that! You want to start with the previous series so that means you want to read Shift! Trust me on that one, you really want to read it and pretty much the following 3 books that come after.

The good news is that Xmas is around the corner, and if you are like me and not working, then it is the best time to take a deep dive into an outstanding series.

But back to From the Grave and we see Kenzie and Bash (her boyfriend) a while after the events that took place in Omega (Book 4 of Origins series). A lot happened in that book and now we are looking into the consequences, the positives and the bad ones too!

I do not want to spoil it for you all, because there is so much that happens and it is all just plain great! I read the book in one go and I already am crying for the next one!

Did I ever mention that I hate waiting? Well, there you have it!

What I will say, is that we had a very interesting bad guy (we always need one!) and that guy was creative. Okay, I will share, it is about vengeance!

I know, I said no spoilers, but it is hard to give you info without giving away everything!

Honestly, From the Grave was just great, it felt so good going back into this world and revisit with truly beloved characters. I have no idea, how many books are planned in this series, but I am again hoping for another dozen :-p

A girl can dream!

If you have read the origin series, then you are going to LOVE this baby, no ifs no buts! If this is your first encounter with Karina’s books then it makes no difference, the books are amazing and as I said above you want to start with Book 1 as I said.

Karina creates amazingly strong and fascinating women (have a look and her new series The Last Valkyrie) and her world building is also wonderful. You have fun, some good laughs, deal with drama, heartache and all the good things that make an addict!

I am going to be VERY HIGHLY recommending From the Grave and I really hope you love it as much as I do. Once you guys are done reading I would love to hear what you thought! Just bug me!!
