Synopsis:

It’s been four weeks since Ember Brycin witnessed what her powers are capable of. The Elcectrical Current Storm┬áhas turned Seattle, Washington into a natural disaster zone. The death toll is in the thousands with countless others homeless and hungry.

And Ember is the one who caused it. Something she will have to live with every day.

Those people who were unable to escape either turned quickly into gangs or live in shelters. Ember, on the other hand, can’t do wither. With a price on her head and a Dark Dweller on her ass, she is constantly on the move. Both Light and Dark are hunting her for their own purpose to use her as a weapon or a pawn in the war between the Unseelie King of the Dark and the Seelie Queen of the Light

Em needs help but doesn’t know who to trust: Lars, the mystery man Torin told her to find? Torin, the Seelie Queen’s personal knight, who has sworn to keep Em safe? Or Eli, who wants to turn her over to the Unseelie King, but whom she has an undeniable, intense connection with?

No matter what she chooses she will probably lose-her life or everything and everyone she loves.

Review:

The only reason this is a 3 star instead of a 2.5 is because of the plot twists.

Throughout the book Ember seemed like a whiny brat at times while flipping back to being a good heroine. Eli… I still do not like Eli. I can never fully tell what is going to happen with him. Is he going to final give into the sexual tension or is he going to keep being an asshole.

Ember makes bad decision after bad decision. I get she has trust issues but she’s a freaking idiot.

The plot twists. I sort of guessed one right as it was about to be revealed the other was a complete shock to me. If it wasn’t for the cliff hanger ending and me reading this as a buddy read, I might have DNF the series.

Two more books to go.
