    Ember, book 2 in the Faylinn series, is, at its worst, an imaginative and engaging dip into the YA fantasy pool and, at its best, a fantastic and refreshing new work of fiction. Hayes takes the reader on a ride with main character Calliope, part-human/part-fairy, as she struggles with her new role as Queen of Faylinn. Stepping into a new world, Calliope is faced with matters of state, rogue uprisings, unsuitable suitors, and tough decisions as she works to lead Faylinn in ways consistent with both her heart and tradition. Ember is very character driven, the leads exhibiting convincing emotions and reactions that will have anyone who's ever loved or stood toe-to-toe with injustice nodding their heads in understanding. The book is a simple read--no deep psychological plot or overly eloquent plunge into verbosity--yet it maintains an ability to weave a story that entrances the reader and makes him or her step into the characters and consider the possibilities. Hayes's first foray into the writing realm, Kaleidoscope, introduced us to a world of fairies and left us wanting just a little bit more. Ember, however, ends on a definite cliffhanger that will make the reader itch for the next installment. It is, in this reviewer's opinion, an example of how a writer can grow in her abilities from book to book and how that writer can grow a series from an entertaining read into an engaging world of possibilities. On the petty side of things, there are several editing errors (word omissions, incorrect phrases, incorrect punctuation, etc.#, but most of them are easily overlooked for those just wanting to experience the story and the world of Faylinn. If those kinds of things bother you, I am sure the printed hard copy of the book #due out sometime in 2014) will deliver a much more correct grammatical experience for you. Regardless of where you stand on grammatical issues, Ember is a lovely read that will open your mind to the "what ifs" we have all imagined. Look out for more from Mindy Hayes; I have a feeling this writer has much more up her sleeve for us.
