#BookReview: Ember of Night (Ember of Night #1) by Molly E. Lee

Synopsis: I am a weed.

Unloved by my abusive, alcoholic dad. Unwanted by my classmates. Unnoticed by everyone else.

But I’d suffer anything to give my kid sister a better life—the minute I turn eighteen, I’m getting us the hell out of here. And some hot stranger telling me I am the key to stopping a war between Heaven and Hell isn’t going to change that.

Let the world crumble and burn, for all I care.

Draven is relentless, though. And very much a liar. Every time his sexy lips are moving, I can see it—in the dip of his head, the grit of his jaw—even if my heart begs me to ignore the signs.

So what does he want?

I need to figure it out fast, because now everyone is gunning for me. And damn if I don’t want to show them what happens when you let weeds thrive in the cracks of the pavement…

We can grow powerful enough to shatter the whole foundation.


Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: Who hasn't felt like a weed?  I know I have on occasion. This book doesn't pull any punches and lets it all go at the start of the story with a massive trigger warning that you should read. There is a ton of action in this one and it was almost too much.  I felt that the pacing was a little off. As it would hype way up then way down all thought the story.  Which in itself isn't a bad thing.  This one had a lot of twists and turns. But I just kept feeling that parts of this one felt like it was for lower young adult and other parts was for older young adult.  So it messed with my enjoyment just a smidge. Overall the story was really good and I will read the next one. 

Go Into This One Knowing:  thoughts of suicide, child abuse, alcoholism, violence.
