Iridescent Tour (Part 1): A Review of Ember by Carol Oates

Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Published: July 11, 2011
Publisher: Omnific Publishing

The Blurb:
When Candra Ember wakes up in hospital after a dangerous encounter with a red-haired woman, she is shocked to discover that seeing a winged boy wasn’t her imagination. Candra is exposed to a world of rivalry and sacrifice she never knew existed, and the aftermath of a war to save humanity thousands of years ago. Soon she finds herself relentlessly stalked by Sebastian, a beautiful and arrogant Watcher Angel and romantically pursued by his darkly seductive rival, Draven. Ultimately, dubious about her own goodness, Candra’s very existence compromises a tentative peace in the city of Acheron.
My Review:
Ember is the first book in the Ember series by Carol Oates. Angels, angels, everywhere! I couldn't get enough of this book. Any chance I got, I was reading it! There were so many unique aspects to this story. For one, you don't have a clear picture of who's good or who's bad. That really kept me on my toes while I read. Even though I favored Sebastian from the start, I couldn't help but wonder what his true motives were. There are two main groups of angels, and both sides want something from Candra. Like Candra, I had a hard time picking a side. Both choices seemed to have good intentions. But do they really? I'm not telling! There are surprising twists and turns as you ride the emotional roller coaster with Candra. The wrong choice could mean war. Or maybe it's the right choice? Hmm. When I thought I had the two sides figured out... Wrong! The plot was very well thought out, and the author has a way of making the reader feel really invested in the lives of her characters. If you're a fan of angels and fallen angels or just a fan of a good paranormal romance, this is definitely a book to put on your "To Be Read Now" list!
