Book Description 

What if you knew when someone was going to die?

For seventeen-year-old Ember, life is death. With a simple touch, she knows when someone will die. It’s her curse and the reason she secludes herself from the world. The only person who knows her secret is her best friend Raven.

Then she meets Asher Morgan. He’s gorgeous, mysterious, and is the only person Ember can't sense death from. So when he pushes into her life, she doesn’t mind.
But when unexplained deaths start to haunt her town, Ember starts questioning why she can’t sense Asher's death and what he may be hiding.


I received this this book for review by the author for an honest review.
Ember is a dark paranormal book that will leave you wanting the next one. The storyline was great and I loved Asher & Ember they have to be my favorite character’s in the book. I also really loved the Grim Reapers/Death Angels are in a war over souls.  Once I started reading it was really hard to put down Jessica did a wonderful job creating this story for people to fall into. 

Ember is a 17 year old girl who can see people’s death with just a touch, so she tries to keep herself away from everyone. She goes to great lengths to have no physical contact with anyone. But that doesn't always work. With her father missing and her mother addicted to drugs and just flat out not taking her meds sometimes ok well most of the time. Her brother also suffers from depression but he seems to want to be there for her, it’s just she knows her brother could not handle what is happening.  The only person who knows is her best friend Raven.
That is until she meets Asher Morgan he’s gorgeous, mysterious and has tattoos *Swoon* but he’s not the only one vying for Ember's attention there is also Cameron But there is not really any love triangle in this book because Ember knows what she wants.  

With people disappearing and people trying to kill her Ember must figure out what she is because the war with the Reapers/Death Angels has just stepped into her own back yard and to save herself and the ones she loves she must find a way to stop it for good. 

About the author

 I live in Wyoming with my husband and three kids. I’m the author of the Fallen Star Series, the Darkness Falls Series, and the upcoming Death Collectors Series. I love writing and reading almost anything that is YA. Some of my favorite authors are Cassandra Clare, Sarah Dessen, Becca Fitzpatrick, Abbi Glines, Tammara Webber, Jamie McGuire and Jennifer L. Armentrout. I’m also an avid watcher of TV series The Vampire Diaries and of Modern Family.

I absolutely love music. When I’m writing, 9 out of 10 times I have music blaring in the background. My list of favorite songs could go on and on, since I have a very broad taste in music. But a few of my favorite bands are Chevelle, Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, Brand New, Death Cab for Cutie, Flight 409, Nirvana, and I’m going to stop there or else I’ll keep going on forever.

I don’t really have any favorite movies, but a few that I could watch over and over again are Anywhere but Here, Juno, Pride and Prejudice, The Hangover, and Bad Teacher.
