Review – Cinder-X by Jessica Sorensen @jessFallenStar


The Blurb

Until Asher Morgan came along, nineteen-year old Ember’s life had always been about death. Being around Asher, though, and being able to be near him and touch him, changed her and made her feel alive for the very first time. But now he’s gone and she’s left dealing with her seclusion again, the emptiness of not being able to be touched, and the curse of the Grim Angel.

As a battle breaks out between Angels and Reapers, she desperately searches for answers about who she is, where she came from, and what she needs to stop the battle. But things get complicated when Cameron returns to her life and begins messing with her thoughts and emotions.

Ember tries to hold onto her sanity while the line between life and death begins to blur. Lives are threatened. Murder is everywhere. She needs to figure out what’s real, what’s an illusion, and who she really has feelings for before it’s too late.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series (Ember-X), and I enjoyed this book too, but I’m sorry to say that there were lots of errors which ought to have been picked up in the editing/proof reading stage, and these simply proved to be distracting.  Now, dont get me wrong, the story is a worthy sequel to book one, charting Ember’s descent into madness really well, and Asher’s change in character is also evident.  I know that editing is a tough gig, and that with the best will in the world, stuff slips through.  But when it actually catches my attention away from the story, then I’m afraid that it affects the review.

This would have been another B grade.  But, due to the issues, I have to downgrade to B-.  This doesn’t mean that the story isnt worth a read, because it totally is.  I’m really looking forward to the next one, which I hope won’t have similar issues!
