First book I've read by this author and I wasn't disappointed. I will definitely be looking into her/their other works.

This was a great start, i will caution though that this ends in a cliffhanger. This is the first i have read by this author, and i love her style of writing. Also, I think i am falling in love with Drav, i cant wait for the next one.

This is an on the edge of your seat keep you guessing kind of book. Just when you think you know what's going to happen next you don't. By the time I reached chapter 3 my heart was racing and I was living it, breathing it, and feeling the emotions. It sucked me into the pages and books like that are hard to come by. I am recommending this book to everyone I know who lives to read. And I will be purchasing a hard copy for my library. It is phenomenal and the best part is that it's not over...

She should never have survived and yet she did! Mya is built to survive and she will finally find her family with her gumption! Most female characters end up whining their way through the fight but Mya takes the hits and keeps on fighting. I cannot wait to see the bond between Drav and Mya grow stronger while searching for her family and smart mouth brother!

Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite I loved Demon Ember: Resurrection Chronicles Book 1 by M.J. Haag, Becca Vincenza and Melissa Haag. I was looking for something I could read in a weekend. Demon Ember looked like it would fit the bill. But I didn’t want to waste my time. I wanted something that would absorb me. I wanted something new that I could really get into. I am not a paranormal fan, but I realize it can be a great genre in the right hands. These authors have the right hands. I have seen this type of story before, but never done like this or done so well. Mostly you see this kind of tale in movies or on television and, though they are sometimes done well, I’ve never seen one done this well. A big surprise for me is that there is not one sex scene in this book, yet it has one of the most satisfying romances or friendships that I have ever read. There are two main characters in Demon Ember and I liked them both a lot, though they start as apparent enemies. Mya and Drav soon develop a relationship that defies definition. A relationship that they both need and want. There is growth and it is very beautifully done. It had to be done well as it is the driving force that keeps the plot pushing forward. The story is good and there are a lot of questions for the reader to puzzle over, but the relationship is what keeps us going. The setting is done well, but again, the characters steal the show. There is great writing all round which glues everything together into a whole that transcends the individual parts.

Reviewed by Aimee Carol Dixon for Readers' Favorite Hell has come to earth. It began with tremors that grew in scale until the safety of a whole European town was at risk. Silence crept in with the aftermath, reports of animal attacks flooded social media, and then, when the whole world was watching… everything stopped. In just a few hours the world as Mya knew it was upended. And then the chaos reached the United States and the true horror began. Demon Ember by M.J. Haag, Becca Vincenza, and Melissa Haag is a spine-tingling read that’s sure to please mature readers who like their novels rife with zombie apocalypses and romantic tension. The authors work together with an ease to be envied. Their choice to juxtapose the introduction of their apocalypse with a typical day for Mya made the experience more chilling. The buildup was amazing, and something that really impressed me was the authors’ ability to keep that eeriness going throughout Demon Ember. Only once was I not on edge when one of the Infected was nearby, and that was orchestrated by the authors as well. As Mya adjusts to the routine and travel with Drav, the mysterious and often unnerving “grey man,” I found it easier to relax to the same degree she did. Still, even with the comfort gleaned from Drav’s presence, there are plenty of jump moments. Not to mention that most of the comedy and outrage came, in equal measure, courtesy of Drav’s intense curiosity about the female form. By having him come from such a different world and giving him such a steep learning curve made the actual burgeoning tenderness between Mya and Drav more easily accessible to me as a reader. Full of unnerving implications and suspense, Demon Ember is a book I cannot recommend highly enough.

Reviewed by Ankita Shukla for Readers' Favorite In Demon Ember, the first book in the Resurrection Chronicles Series, the authors -- M.J. Haag, Becca Vincenza, and Melissa Haag -- put forth their version of a world dealing with a near apocalypse situation. Mya and her roommate (Kristin) are having a typical college day when the news of tremors in Germany becomes the major highlight. Before anybody could understand the severity of the situation, similar tremors begin causing terror in the US as well. Their trepidation is increased by the sudden appearances of people with severed bodies and a weird gait. The problems quickly turn into chaos where everyone is terrified and clueless. While escaping the undead and dangerous beasts whose bites are converting normal humans into infected ones (undead), Mya runs straight into a creature so strange that no words could define him aptly. She only wants to reunite with her family, but this creature, who calls himself Drav, has a strange obsession with her. Mya is not sure how much she can rely on Drav and how he would react when they find her family. Nevertheless, if she wants to survive, Drav might be her only chance. The authors have written a story that keeps their readers on the edge of their seats throughout the book. I was hooked right from the beginning and completely connected with the characters. Their trepidation is communicated very effectively. I could feel Mya's concern about her family's well-being and her distrust toward Drav. The execution of the action scenes is so perfect that I found my heartbeats in sync with the characters that were involved in their respective acts. The conversations and situations are kept as close to reality as possible. Mya was thinking the same things that popped into my head and so I found myself very much in harmony with her. Needless to say, she is my favorite character. Although she is in a desperate situation, she is not afraid to voice her opinion whenever required. She has a clear vision of right and wrong and is portrayed as a wonderful girl. This book has met -- and, dare I say -- exceeded all my expectations. I am not a fan of action, violence or apocalypse scenarios; however, the authors' presentation and execution amazed me. I, as a reader, found myself perfectly synchronized with the characters and the plot. I could not wait to learn the climax, yet did not feel the need to rush my reading because the development (and therefore the reading journey) was so intriguing and enveloping.

This book was amazing. I couldn't put it down. I was a bit annoyed at Maya at first for trying to escape when obviously she was safer with D. Can't wait to read the next book!?

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! I won a copy of this book in a giveaway, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! This is the first book in this series, and my first time reading anything by M.J. or Becca. I do own several of Melissa’s books, and I just bought one of Becca’s because I loved this book so much! This book was an unexpected delight to read! I should warn you though that it ends in a cliffhanger way which is killing me because I want more and to know what happens next. I’d say this classifies as a New Adult as the main character Mya is in college. There is lots of violence not making it appropriate from younger readers. When I started reading this book, I never read the blurb. Sometimes, I like to be surprised, and I definitely was because I didn’t know this was a post-apocalyptic zombie type of book. The book starts with Mya and her roommate studying in their dorm room, but they are watching the news. I was pulled into the story and didn’t even realize it. Mya and Drav are quite the pair, and Drav is very protective of Mya. He is learning English as Mya talks to him. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll just tell you that this book is amazing and has tons of action. I highly recommend this book to any reader who like post-apocalyptic books of survival mixed with fantasy and zombies, and if cliffhangers both you, you may want to wait until the series finishes and read them at that time. I hate waiting, but I will because this book was fantastic! For now, I’m not so patiently waiting for the next book!

I normally don't like to read dystopian type books, and never ever zombie books or movies- definitely not before this book anyway. But I absolutely love this book, it's my favorite book by MJ Haag/Melissa Haag to date. I'm a huge fan of this author. The events that take place in the story don't seem so far fetched as to be unbelievable. There's something about the interactions between Drav & Mya that just pulled me in, made me sigh & wish for a Drav of my own (without a zombie apocolypse though!). Mya seems to be a typical college student, but there's really so much more to her than a typical college student. Drav, some sort of Demon creature-man, is absolutely endearing with his relationship with Mya (not so much with the rest of the humans he interacts with in this book though). There's so much still to learn about everything going on in the next 2 books in this series & wondering if Mya will ever be able to reach her family or if Drav will actually leave Mya if she actually does reach her family. The humor in this book is outstanding for lightening up the mood & the seriousness of the events. I was constantly laughing out loud. Also, even though this was written as a collaboration between 2 authors, I could not see who contributed what to the story, it was seamless, though I haven't read anything from Becca Vincenza for comparison, I've read/own all MJ Haag/Melissa Haag's books. The flow was smooth & fast, the leading characters are very likable, & has you sitting on the edge of your seat wondering -oh my, what's going to happen next?! You can see the main characters evolving, slowly becoming friends (maybe even on the verge of more?). When you hit the end of the book, you'll be mad because you'll want to keep reading to see what happens next. It is a big cliff-hanger, but the kind that's worth it, that makes you really want the next book to see where this is going because your hooked & invested in these characters. I totally can't wait for the next book in this series!

Having read everything by Melissa Haag and Becca Vincenza, I have to admit that this has got to be one of my favorites and on of the best dystopian novels I've read of late. Mya and Drav meet during an apocalyptic nightmare, she being human and he being...other. They set about to find her family and make the world right again, running into situations along the way that are devastating and dangerous. They find themselves on the run and not necessarily from the menacing forces that have been unleash on the world. Sometimes, the monsters come from within. This is a collaboration that was meant to be. The writing styles melded into something fantastic and exciting. It is unlike other zombie apocalypse books I've read, and the unusual relationship between the characters is fascinating and mesmerizing. Each of these authors has wonderful works in her own right, and putting them together gives us the beginning to a powerful series. The beginning is nail biting, the middle is spine-chilling, and the end is a surprise that leaves us wanting more. I can't wait for the next one in the series.
