Synopsis:
There are descendants of angels walking among us. Ember is one of them. And she may be the only hope mankind has as the rapture approaches and evil rises.

Embers is an epic paranormal adventure about an eighteen year old girl who discovers that she's immune to fire and any other injury when she’s in a horrific car crash that kills her parents. Following a violent episode with her aunt's boyfriend, Ember flees Ohio to live with an old relative in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Ember's exuberance at escaping a bad home life soon turns to trepidation when she finds out that she's a Watcher, a descendant of angels. While Ember learns about her heritage and the powers that go along with it, she strikes up friendships with two young men who live in a frightening walled compound in the forest. Inexplicitly drawn to one of the men in particular, an impossible romance develops. But it is cut short when Ember discovers that her new friends are fighting on the opposite side of a war—one that’s been raging between two factions of Watchers for thousands of years. When the compound’s inhabitants threaten the townspeople, Ember takes action, sealing her fate in the ancient battle of good versus evil—and the grayness in between. Ember is up to the challenge, until she realizes that she isn’t only fighting for the lives of the locals and the souls of her new friends. She also might be one of the few champions who will make a stand for all of mankind as the rapture approaches and the end of days begin.

Embers is a dark and gritty YA novel that’s the first book in the series, The Wings of War.

REVIEW

The gorgeous cover of EMBERS was what motivated me to want to read this story. It is definitely captivating to the eye so I had to get my hands on it. This is the first book by Karen that I have ever read and I am keeping my eyes on this author. I enjoyed EMBERS a lot, especially because it is entirely different from what angel books usually are.

The vivid description of the story makes the reader feel as if they were inside the story, watching everything happen on the sidelines. I always like to imagine the books settings and with EMBERS, it was fairly easy to do with all the great description it had. The reader travels to a whole different world, one we are not used to reading about but definitely enjoy.

Embers is gifted with magick and it was interesting to read about her discovery of what she was able to do and to what extent were the force of her powers. The paranormal aspect of the story was written extremely well and different, as mentioned before. The reader won’t want to stop reading until the book ends. It keeps drawing your attention and leaving you in this world of paranormal magick.

If you are not a fan of paranormal or angel stories, I advise you to read EMBERS. It is definitely dark and extremely interesting. You will love this story and will want more when the book ends. This series will be a fantastic one.
