23531413Title: City in Embers

Author: Stacey Marie Brown

Release date: February 4th 2015

Publisher: Twisted Fairy Publishing

Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance, New Romance

Book Description:

Zoey Daniels has been tossed from foster home to foster home, where she grows up fast and tough. When she is placed in her “last-chance” home, she finds a reason to stay and turn her life around: her foster sister, Lexie, who is paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. Zoey will do anything to keep her safe. After high school, Zoey is hired by a special government agency, the Department of Molecular Genetics (DMG), where she meets the other reason to remain: Daniel, her co-worker. The man she loves.

But there is something unique about Zoey. She can see fae. Because of this, the DMG hires her to work as a Collector: catching, researching, testing, and using the fae to save human lives. The work never registers on her sympathy radar. She was raised to think of fae as beasts that feed on humans and want to destroy them.

When devastation hits Seattle, Zoey’s whole world is turned upside down. The electric storm connects her to a ruthless fae, a Wanderer named Ryker, whose dealings expose them to even more trouble and danger. They embark on a journey, running and hiding from both the government and fae, both of which threaten their lives and those they love.

Review

HOLY HONEY!!! Okay so I have been putting off reading these books, not that I can remember why, but I totally should have read City in Embers as soon as it came out!

Zoey is the shit and I freaking LOVE her! City in Embers had me all emotional when some dramatic stuff happens –NO SPOILERS HERE PROMISE!- and I’m glad that my kiddos weren’t around for the more emotional moments because my daughter likes to tell me that it’s not real and it’s just a book…so I’m glad I didn’t have to blubber in front of her this time! It’s seriously sad though and I would have some tissues on hand while reading.

So in City of Embers you don’t get much ‘yummy’ action but the building of the story and characters are well worth it and the tension could have been cut with a knife when Zoey and Ryker finally became ‘partners’ or whatever. Sprig is just the cutest freaking thing EVER and I want one of my own! I would feed him all the honey he wanted!!

The action parts of the book are well written. The descriptions were great and made me feel like I was right there with everyone. I’m intrigued by the whole fae powers being moved from one person to another…you’ll have to read to understand that but seriously I’m still trying to figure that out.

The end leaves off with a cliffhanger and I’m glad that I already had The Barrier Between to fall right into!

Review for The Barrier Between down below…only read if you’re okay with learning about book #2 before reading book #1!!!

The Barrier Between leaves off exactly where City of Embers leaves off and the things that happen in this book are just insane!!! I was so drawn in that I couldn’t even put it down for anything!!! Zoey and Ryker are super freaking HOT and I totally saw the whole Amara thing coming, I hated her from City in Embers and I hadn’t even met her yet! I hope Karma bites her in the butt for what she does! The situation changes quite a bit though when getting Ryker his powers back comes at a price, a price that I REALLY hope he doesn’t have to pay! Maybe they will figure something else out and everyone is happy? ANYWAY the action is again great and the hot scenes…are HOT…

I CAN NOT WAIT TO READ ACROSS THE DIVIDE!!!!!!!!!!!
