Oh wow I totally did not expected that and I mean in it in GOOOD WAYY.
When I requested to review this book I did not know much about it and dived into it totally blind without reading any reviews. Actually I found this to be the perfect way for me as it does not affects my opinion over the book in any way.
I loved the writing style, the whole story and how it was build was really something.
This book deals with some very heavy and difficult topics that might trigger people that have experienced grief, rape, addiction also abduction. So please be cautious and have this in mind before picking it up.
I loved Ember even though at times I would not have made the same choices she made, but still her character was well developed and I could relate to her in many ways. Absolutely looking forward to the second book!
In conclusion HIGHLY RECOMMENDED gave it 4.5 stars rounded to 5!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A teenager still lives inside me. After two decades of working as a journalist, writing serious news for such publications as Fortune Magazine, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, I finally let my imagination run wild in 2015. The result is Ember’s story told in the three-book Trinity Forest Series, www.trinityforestseries.com. The first book Ember Burning, is available on Amazon.com.
I live near Vail, Colorado, and when I’m not absorbed in writing or reading, I like a good hike, doing yoga, hanging with my boys, some moguls on skis, a rigorous mountain bike ride or the simple pleasures of life. My favorites: untouched snow, frozen chocolate chips, savasina on my yoga mat and yes, bowls of pan fried brussels sprouts.
My first book, Ember Burning, has been described as a page-turning story ideal for fans of The Uglies, We Were Liars and Before I Fall about a teen grieving over her parent’s tragic death who becomes entangled with a mysterious forest teeming with urban legends of strange disappearances and witchcraft. The book opens up into a paranormal world of loss, mystery, love and survival as Ember searches for escape– and a path back to herself. The second book Oshun Rising, came out in August 2017, and the third, Venus Shining, will debut in November.
