Book Description Via Goodreads
When Candra Ember wakes up in hospital after a dangerous encounter with a red-haired woman, she is shocked to discover that seeing a winged boy wasn’t her imagination. Candra is exposed to a world of rivalry and sacrifice she never knew existed, and the aftermath of a war to save humanity thousands of years ago. Soon she finds herself relentlessly stalked by Sebastian, a beautiful and arrogant Watcher Angel and romantically pursued by his darkly seductive rival, Draven. Ultimately, dubious about her own goodness, Candra’s very existence compromises a tentative peace in the city of Acheron. 


Review
I really enjoyed reading Ember, I really did. It was a fascinating story with a lot going on, and I felt there was a good pace, a good flow throughout. The story itself deals with Candra, and we first find her in a suspenseful scene that lands her in the hospital, and she has no idea what happened, but remembers a good looking guy, and perhaps some wings? What? Well, eventually she meets the guy with the wings, Sebastian, but he is not telling her anything, literally, so she tries to find some answers from her Stepmother whom is also tightlipped, but she somehow knows Sebastian. What Candra finds as answers is ultimately shocking to her, but she tries to adjust to keep her normal life, even though things are going to change, but are they for the better...or worse? And why does Draven, Sebastian's rival, want to be with Candra so badly? Well, you just got to read this first book in this series, to find out, and let me say it's not at all disappointing! 

My Rating: 4.2/5
I would say a PG-13 with Mild Language


Author Bio Via Goodreads
Carol Oates has never been one to remain still for long. After her mother’s mad dash to the hospital through the empty city streets of Dublin, Ireland, Carol made her debut into the world in the early hours of Christmas morning. Since then her pace has not slowed down in the least.
Carol was introduced to the world of supernatural books when, as a child, her family moved to a coastal suburb of north Dublin known as Clontarf; famous as the birthplace of Bram Stoker, the prolific author responsible for breathing life into the legendary story of “Dracula.” This stirred in Carol an early passion for reading about all things supernatural. When that passion was combined with a deep interest in the history and folklore of Ireland, as well as an active and vivid imagination, Carol Oates, the author, was born. Carol’s love of writing about anything not entirely “human" emerged.
