Ember (Death Collectors, Book 1) Review

So something that I was wanting to add to my blog was book reviews. I chose to start with Ember because I literally just finished the book and rushed to my desk to write the review.

Ember Rose Edwards is not like your average high schooler. She actually hides a dark secret, that she can see your death. After her father goes nuts and disappears, Ember has to deal with the stigma of being accused of his disappearance and assumed death. Everyone in town calls her “killer” among other things. Not only that, but she has to deal with her mentally unstable mother and stoner/ artist brother. Ember keeps to herself, writing poetry and spending time with her only friend in the world, Raven. Raven is the only person she ever told about her “curse.” Ember teaches herself to deal with the omens and live her life the best way she could. Of course, all of that changes at a party Raven drags her to and two new boys, Cameron Logan and Asher Morgan, move to town. Chock full of emotion, murder, Grim Reapers and Angels of Death, Jessica Sorensen does an amazing job telling this story. I am afraid to tell too much because I don’t want to give anything away.

This book was absolutely amazing! I have had a hard time finding books that make me just say “wow” lately, aside from my slight obsession with Tricia Drammeh and Victoria Barrow (they will forever blow me away,) but this book did it for me. There were some technical issues than could use some buffing out, but all in all, it was a great read. I honestly took a chance on this book because it was free and I was looking for something to read.  As we are all too familiar with, a majority of free books end up being lemons that are poorly written and poorly edited, but we deal. I opened this book holding my breath, fearful of what might have been between the pages. I ended up being engulfed in Ember’s world. The emotions were high and the drama was not lacking.
