For those of you who do not know... I am a big Jessica Sorensen fan. *Hearts to "The Fallen Star" Series* and OM2DaGee...
I heard she's going to re-do The Fallen Star from a New Adult POV *winks*
I was way eager to jump on this blog tour. Jessica has a way of creating supporting characters that you will love. But you will somehow manage to get confused over their intentions. You won't know who are the good guys and who the bad guys in the novel. One moment you think one character is going to help our heroine out and by the end of the book your confused and feening for book 2. "Ember" is no exception. I cannot wait for the second installment.
Ember has a gift or curse, she can see anyone's impending death with just a touch. Just imagine having the ability to know when everyone around you will die. I would feel haunted just by the knowledge and so is Ember. She can't get rid of her ability and with the disappearance of her father she is made to feel more outcasted by her peers and her community. Ember has a mother and a brother who are mentally unstable. The only person on her side is her mercurial best friend. A friend who is good to Ember one day and horrible the next day. I felt so bad for Ember. Her loneliness seeped off the page and unto my heart.
While Ember tries to find out why she has this ability, so will you. What does it mean that death is around her, wherever she goes, suffocating the life out of her? When will Ember get live her life and find peace?
Things seem to change or heighten when she meets Asher.
Asher along with another boy move into town and are both enraptured by Ember. Who is there to truly help ease her pain? Who is going to help her navigate her curse?
This book is filled with twists and suspense, people are dying, strangers are after Ember, her family and friends are losing their flipping minds, and the visions are intensifying the doom that Ember walks with each day. What is she? Who is Asher?
PS folks, Asher *swoon worthy* *fans self* The leading men come in many shades of grey *giggles at my reference* but Asher shines as a good guy. While there are those "moments" of hesitation. He still does whatever he can to comfort Ember and offer her peace. *Swoon*
It's that time folks, chapter SHOUT OUT!!!! Please remember to tweet me after reading chapter 10!!!
"But then he growls, wraps his fingers around my thighs, and picks me up. I enclose my legs around his waist as he continues to taste every inch of my mouth and backs us against the wall, beneath the shadows and florescent lights. There’s no space remaining between our bodies and I can feel every inch of him. His kisses bring me a feeling of ecstasy for the first time in my life. His hands are tangled in my hair."
Chapter 10 :-* *passed out on my Macbook* LOL
The writing and the scenes are intense. Ember's pain leaps up at you. The connection between Asher and Ember is steamy and beautiful. Get your copy of "Ember." This is a YA series to keep.
