    Ember's Sequel is Highly Recommended!!

    Carol Oates sends readers back to the world of Acheron. War is on the horizon and Candra still struggles with her special status as a Nephilim with a soul. While the angels behind Draven and Sebastian are under an uneasy alliance, the incoming threat is unknown and getting closer. Iridescent is a startling novel following the events of Ember. The novel begins within the same time frame as Candra describes the aftermath of her best friend’s death and the unity of the Tenebras and Nuhra angels.

    Candra is a force of nature in Iridescent. Her presence fills the story so that it’s almost possible to forget about the impending danger and focus on her strength, resolve to fight for the Watchers, and take charge attitude. Candra is more aggressive when it comes to getting the answers she needs, whether it’s from Sebastian or Draven or the enemy. It’s a wonder that Oates gives Candra more courage, more spunk, and more understanding, yet she embodies the same personality we met in Ember. If it is a heroine of flesh and blood made passionate and brave from circumstances that you’re looking for, look no further because Candra is all of the above and then some.

    Sebastian, with his quick-temper and fierce protective streak, steals the show in flashing moments of selflessness. He’s even more of an asset to this story, even when it seems as though he’s heading in the wrong direction. Sebastian and Candra’s relationship is so crucial that it feels as though they’re the real center of the plot, because they’re either working for each other or against each other’s wishes. The attraction that drew them together in Ember intensifies through tests and heartache in Iridescent.

    Oates’ style is familiar and as detailed as ever. As action-packed as Iridescent is, her ability to write what readers are able to envision is helpful and keeps the story engaging. Every page read is more captivating than the last as the story pulls you in deeper and deeper. I can only count about two scenes that were just a touch too drawn out for any dramatic effect to truly be successful. Otherwise, Oates hit the nail on the head when it comes to making you feel something in any tough situation throughout the novel.

    Iridescent is a wonderful sequel to Ember, and if possible, better. The ending is one you can almost say is expected, but Oates throws just enough of a twist in to conclude Iridescent with a bang. Whether readers should expect more novels in this series is irrelevant, because the next novel Carol Oates graces us with will no doubt entertain and endear to us in the same manner as the Ember series!
