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 am so glad to be apart of the Blog Tour for Ember because I have been super excited to read this book. It was a very quick read for me. It was a fast paced and an action packed kind of book. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to read the second installment!

The thing that got me about this book was that it was about death. When I say death, I mean filled with death. You can't turn a page without there being some kind of reference to it. It was a very interesting thing. I liked Ember :) She was a different. She had a different mindset than anyone else because she's been able to see death since she was a child. Just from one touch, she can see how a person will die, whether it's painful or from old age. I also liked how we got to see Ember's family life. She did not have an easy one. The thing with her mom and brother was really sad to see. Also, Ember's best friend creeped me out at times. I must say she had more issues than Ember did in my eyes. She was to flip floppy with her emotions for me.

Now on to the boys, Asher and Cameron. Now the issue I have with the romance part of the story was that it was basically insta love, in a sense. I wasn't digging it. But I did like Asher over Cameron though. Cameron was really weird and would always show up when it was least expected. I suppose that's all I'm going to say on the that.

The ending was kind of confusing a bit. I'm really sad about the part with Asher and I really hope he makes an appearance in book 2! The part with her brother has my mind running wild. I'm still not entirely sure what happened. And what, again, happened to Raven?! I can't wait to read the sequel and I definitely recommend this book!

  1. I have been looking forward to reading this too and from the likes of it, I like what I have read. Although, I am hesitant about the insta-love part. I don't usually enjoy books with that...but I'll keep an open mind! ;p I'm glad you enjoyed it! Great review!
