For nineteen-year-old Ember, life has always been about death. With a simple touch, she can see when someone will die. It’s her curse and the reason she secludes herself from the world. The only person that knows her secret is her best friend Raven.
But that changes when she meets Asher Morgan. He’s gorgeous and mysterious and is the only person Ember can't sense death from. The silence he instills in her mind and body allows her to feel things she’s never been able to before, so despite her initial reservations, Ember lets Asher into her life and lets herself to get close to him. But the closer they get, the more Ember realizes that Asher is keeping secrets from her.
When unexplained deaths begin to surface in her town, Ember questions why she can’t see Asher's death and what it is he’s hiding from her...
People who can overlook immaturity and grammatical errors and are much more forgiving than I am.
So apparently there is a YA version of this book, as in it's the exact same story and POV but this version has a lot more steam. Leave it to me to choose the steamy version...
Well, steamy version or not, I just couldn't get into it. I've read two other books by Jessica Sorenson and maybe it was my age and reading experience at the time but I thought they were world's better than Ember X. To me the writing and characters in Ember came across extremely juvenile and petty.
I had no choice but to chalk this one up as a fail. It had great potential, the idea behind the book really interested me, but it just didn't make it there.
