Ember by Jessica Sorensen
**Mature Content Advisory**
Recommended for readers 17+ due to sexual situations and language
For nineteen-year-old Ember, life has always been about death. With a simple touch, she can see when
someone will die. It’s her curse and the reason she secludes herself from the world. The only person that
knows her secret is her best friend Raven.
But that changes when she meets Asher Morgan. He’s gorgeous and mysterious and is the only person
Ember can't sense death from. The silence he instills in her mind and body allows her to feel things she’s
never been able to before, so despite her initial reservations, Ember lets Asher into her life and lets
herself to get close to him. But the closer they get, the more Ember realizes that Asher is keeping secrets
When unexplained deaths begin to surface in her town, Ember questions why she can’t see Asher's
death and what it is he’s hiding from her.
Kricket's Chirps : 4 out of 5
This was a very intriguing read to me. It was a slightly different take on the battle between good and evil, and actually gave some credence to the "grey" area between the two. Between Ember, Asher and Cameron - I was a bit confused from the start. I found myself gasping going "oh, no way", only to find out that in fact, my conclusions were wrong.
Reapers, Angels and Grim Angels. I almost needn't go on from there. There was so much possession, trauma and overall emotional mess going on through this story that it was almost hard to keep up with what was mythical and what was plain old human drama. I actually think it lent to the allure of the story, though. I was on the edge of my seat through the whole thing wondering what each character was going to end up being in the end.
And the end. Wow. Again, I'm a little confused. Are Ember's best friend and brother only affected by what she is, or are they part of the fight? For some reason I can see Raven being a Reaper in the end. What do you think?
If you haven't read this one yet, and you're looking for a paranormal and mind-blowing story, this is the one you're looking for. You won't be bored, that's for sure!
