    Ember is a teenage girl with deep emo thoughts who like to sit i

    Ember is a teenage girl with deep emo thoughts who like to sit in cemeteries at night. She doesn’t realize it’s because she has a much deeper connection to death than she ever knew. When steamy new boy Asher saves her from drowning, and new neighbor Cameron writes deep, dark poetry after finding her notebook in the graveyard, Ember begins to wonder what is up with the two guys who obviously hate one another.

    When a series of disappearances begin, reminiscent of her father’s own disappearance years ago, Ember is again accused of being the culprit. Can she learn just what she is before it’s too late? Will she be the wild card in an epic battle of good versus evil?

    Torn between the tormented dark poet and a heroic hot artist, how could Ember ever choose? It becomes clear who the bad guy is in the end, and, while not completely surprising, they why and how threw me for a loop. This story is unique and captivating, with interesting characters and several conflicts that Ember must overcome.  Definitely a recommended read for teens looking for a paranormal romance that lives on the darker side of life.

    I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review. Ember

    I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review. Ember has a secret, she can see your death by just touching you. Growing up has been difficult enough with this curse, but then her father disappears. Because she knew and alerted the police she becomes their one and only suspect. Three years later, similar disappearances occur and once again she's suspect. When Ember finds out the truth, she is shocked. This was a great, quick read, with Angels of Death, Grim Reapers, and Grim Angels. I loved every moment of this novel filled with unconventional twists.

    Doctor's Notes Review

    This book had me hooked from the start in a creepy yet fun way. This book was such a fun read despite the fact it was dealing with the serious issue of death. Ember isn't your normal teenager because she knows when you will die. Yes that's right she can touch you and no what you your death will be like and when it will happen. I have to say I was drawn to the character of Ember. She was such a strong and cool character despite the fact that she had a lot going on in her life. Ember has had to deal with the fact that people thought she was weird and had done something to her father that disappeared one day. Ember had one close friend in her best friend Raven though. I have to say I liked Raven instantly because she was such a true friend to Ember and was always there for her through it all. She knew Ember better than anyone else.

    As Ember starts to deal with the weird things going on in her town she learns more about the herself and what she may be. She meets Asher and I have to say I swooned as soon as she came into contact with him. He was just like your typical bad boy but so much more. I could also tell he like Ember and wanted to keep her safe and was willing to do anything to make that happen for her. As we get to know more about Asher it just made me like him more and more. Ember also learns more about the Grim Reaper that she has always been able to see. She learns his name is Cameron and I have to say that when he came into the picture I was torn. I don't normally like love triangles but this was a pretty believable one that I felt like Ember could have picked either of them and they would have still been right for her.

    The author had a way of upping the suspense in this book and kept me guessing throughout it. She threw in some twists and turns that had me glued to it and wanting to see what would happen next. I love when what I think is going to happen in a book does the complete opposite and this book had plenty of those factors. I also loved the town she created of Ember's because it showed just how some little towns could be and how the residents could alienate one person for being different from what they are used to. I loved that the author made Ember such a strong character that she didn't let that affect her and still held her head high.

    Overall this book had all the elements of a great read with the suspense,romance,intrigue, and action. I loved all of it from start to finish and can't wait for the next book to see how things play out. I loved the world building the author did and the characters were so in depth and not flat at all. I loved the creepy factor of the book too and the paranormal elements. I highly recommend this book to all readers and think you should really check it out.

    I received a free copy of this book for the blog tour but this in no way infulenced my review.
