In the world of journalism, Lola Cabello is one of the rare ones, as she makes sure to tell the truth while risking the wrath of the wealthy and corrupt. Unfortunately, this led to her losing her family and spending the last two years in the shadows. Lola is on a secret mission to expose the Crystal Moths and the madness they've brought upon the world: a potent drug called Ash. She is soon joined on her mission by Synarion, who makes the absurd claim that he's from a different species. Synarion also claims to be bound by oath to keep the balance in the world, which Crystal Moths' drug operation appears to be upsetting. Crystal Moth Conspiracy: Ash Born Book One by Konn Lavery follows an action-packed quest for revenge and balance in a world rife with gradually unraveling secrets about the past and the supernatural realms.

I just couldn't get enough of the thrilling details about the supernatural world, which gets clearer and more intriguing the farther you go in the book. I was excited to find it includes an old, forgotten world and an unconventional hell filled with different unusual beings. Konn Lavery nails the stimulating, spine-chilling elements associated with action and horror. The action scenes take you through vivid details of combat involving wings, tails, claws, fists, and guns. Additionally, since Lola suffers from an addiction to Ash herself, Lola appears real and imperfect. However, her resilience shines through in every physical and mental challenge she faces in her quest for justice. Ultimately, Crystal Moth Conspiracy is a masterpiece. Its awe-inspiring worldbuilding and captivating missions are what fantasy fans who love series like Lucifer would find worth obsessing over. I was hooked from start to finish!
