What if you knew when someone was going to die? For seventeen-year-old Ember, life is death. With a simple touch, she knows when someone will die. It’s her curse and the reason she secludes herself from the world. The only person who knows her secret is her best friend Raven. Then she meets Asher Morgan. He’s gorgeous, mysterious, and is the only person Ember can’t sense death from. So when he pushes into her life, she doesn’t mind. But when unexplained deaths start to haunt her town, Ember starts questioning why she can’t sense Asher’s death and what he may be hiding.
I love when I find unique books in the YA genre. Every book seems to be angels, demons, vampires, werewolves and witches lately. That’s not to say they aren’t all great, don’t get me wrong! I’m just saying it’s nice to see something a little different every now and then. Ember was a nice surprise. I’m not going to give any spoilers sorry, but there are angels and death here. Ember is a great main character with a lot of depth, I found myself really connecting with her. The story moves at a pretty fast pace and keeps the reader’s interest throughout. There’s a lot of guessing and wondering about who is really the good guy and who is the bad guy. I’m really hoping there will be more to this story. I give this one a 4/5 =]
