Blog Review ~ Out of the Ashes by RC Boldt

RC Boldt

Phoenix /fēniks/: (in classical mythology) a unique bird inhabiting the Arabian Desert that burned itself on a funeral pyre before rising from the ashes with renewed youth to live through another cycle.

This isn’t mythology, it’s war, and Hendy is left in the hands of Hell’s cruelest gatekeepers. 

His team is killed before his very eyes, and despite his efforts to save them, he’s captured and subjected to merciless torture—losing virtually every piece of his identity but his pulse.

After his rescue, he returns home from Afghanistan, saddled with facing the daunting task of healing his physical scars as well as the invisible ones—his emotional demons. 

Dr. Presley Cole isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. Embarking on a new journey, she makes it her mission to prove to Hendy that his life isn’t over; that he’s worthy of love.

Because sometimes even a phoenix needs help to rise…
Out of the Ashes.

**Out of the Ashes is a full-length, standalone which does not need to be read in conjunction with any other book.**


In Out of the Ashes RC Boldt delivers an emotional story of Hendy a Navy Seal that suffers PTSD. He goes through hell and back and experiences tragedy, loss and guilt that guts the reader, Boldt rips your heart out and pieces it back together again. I have read and loved several books by this author and must say this one blew me away and is my new favorite. The story is told with great care and attention to detail. RC Boldt is not afraid to tackle the tough subjects and her compassion shines through. Hands down a five star read for me.
5 Stars


I wish I could give Out of the Ashes more than 5 stars. This book and the author are another example of why I love to read so much.

Out of the Ashes deals with the issue of PTSD and how it affects our military members. Just reading the dedication, I knew this was going to be a phenomenal and emotional read; I wasn’t disappointed. Presley and Hendy have become one of my favorite book couples. My heart was shattered from the prologue and then taped back together to be broken again.

PTSD has been such a taboo illness to talk about, let alone to seek help for it; with a personal experience with the military and PTSD, Ms. Boldt’s ability to put into words the experiences of what a military member has, along with those that love them was spot on.

I highly recommend this book, be ready for an emotional, heartbreaking story.
5 Stars
