When I heard this new read was coming my way I got super excited. So when it arrived, I knew that I wouldn’t be able to start until I could truly sit down. No work or worries and just read read read! So that’s what I’m doing on this beautiful crisp Saturday morning. However, I stopped for just a Leisure Moment to let you know that Embers is coming. I’ll even give you a little heads up, Karen and I have an interview and grand giveways in the works for Ember’s release. So get ready. Tell us what you think about the cover in the comments section.

There are descendants of angels walking among us. Ember is one of them.Embers is an epic paranormal adventure/romance about a seventeen year old girl who discovers that she’s immune to fire and any other injury when she’s in a horrific car crash that kills her parents. Following a violent episode with her aunt’s boyfriend, Ember flees Ohio to live with an old relative in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Ember’s exuberance at escaping a bad home life soon turns to trepidation when she learns that she’s a Watcher, a descendant of angels. While Ember is instructed about her heritage and the powers that go along with it, she strikes up friendships with two teenagers who live in a frightening walled compound in the forest. Inexplicitly drawn to one of the young men in particular, an impossible romance develops.
But it is cut short when Ember discovers that her new friends are fighting on the opposite side of a war, that’s been raging between two factions of Watchers for thousands of years. When the compound’s inhabitants threaten the townspeople, Ember takes action, sealing her fate in the ancient battle of good versus evil, and the grayness in between. Ember is up to the challenge, until she realizes that she isn’t only fighting for the lives of the locals and the souls of her new friends. She also might be one of the few champions who will make a stand for all of mankind as the rapture approaches and the end of days begin.Embers is a dark and gritty YA novel that’s the first book in the series, The Wings of War.
