I believe that this book's title fits it well for many reasons. Not only is it the main character's name, but since the book has several dark and magically themes, the title works well to subtly convey these messages. The title also correctly suggests something to do with fire; since Ash is a servant (in times before electricity was invented) she often starts to puts out fires to warm her family's home, frequently sleeping in front of them.

Were I to re-title this book, I would call it either Torn or The Wood. I chose the first title because the main character is constantly torn between fairy tales and reality throughout her life, and is starting to feel as though she must choose between the two people she loves; Sidhean, a fairy who was cursed to love her, or Kaisa, the King's Huntress who loves her despite their different social classes. The second title is appropriate because it is where much of the book is set, and is where she met both Kaisa and Sidhean.


  1. This sounds like a very interesting book. I agree I really like the title of the book. Even just the title intrigued me before I knew anything else about the book.

  2. Your book sounds very interesting. I like the two titles you chose. From your description of your book, those titles sound like they would satify the book very well. :)
