I am thrilled to be part of the tour for EMBER OF NIGHT by Molly E. Lee hosted by Turn the Page Tours and published by Entangled Teen. This book was incredible and I'm so happy to offer a giveaway for a finished copy. Read below!
I’ve been told I was as useless as a weed most of my life.
Mainly by my worthless father.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.
Do you love books that remind you of the books that got you into reading YA? My entry into YA started with Twilight, as it has with MANY readers. Twilight gets a ton of flack, but it's classic and I loved it. Now, Ember of Night doesn't have vampires, but it does have the same type of romance that a lot of us adore.
Harley's life isn't ideal. She lives with her younger sister, Ray, in a trailer with her abusive father. She counts down the days until she's eighteen and is able to get an apartment and apply for custody of Ray. When she meets a guy at a concert, she thinks she'll never see him again until he shows up at work as a new employee. Draven is mysterious and prone to agitation and silence, but Harley finds herself drawn to him, much to her best friend Kai's annoyance. Things get a little crazier when she discovers the presence of demons and that she may be the key they hold to unlock an ancient and dangerous enemy. With Draven as her protector, she comes into her own power and finds out how far she's willing to go to save those she loves.
First things first. The romance is sorta insta-love, but sorta not if that makes sense. Harley has A LOT on her plate and romance isn't something she's willing to give her time to. BUT it happens to her anyway. Draven is the perfect mix of brooding and sexy. He wants to protect Harley, but he also gives her the space to be independent and trust that she can handle things to an extent. He's more of a "what can I do to help?" rather than, "I'm here to help you, step aside." I love, loved him. He has secrets he has to keep from Harley, much like Edward Cullen, and he's scared of doing it until he finds himself so drawn to her that he has to spill the beans for her sake.
There are some heavy themes throughout the book including abuse, alcohol use, Harley's self-worth has been broken down by her own father, and it was so hard to see what she thought about herself. But it's marvelous to see how she breaks free of her father's hold and realizes how bold, strong and beautiful she truly is, despite what her father has drilled into her head.
As the story comes to its conclusion (for book one) we find out A LOT that is left unsaid. There is so much I want to know that we never got to discover, so book two is going to be explosive. I am so ready.
