For nineteen-year-old Ember, life has always been about death. With a simple touch, she can see when someone will die. It’s her curse and the reason she secludes herself from the world. The only person that knows her secret is her best friend Raven.
But that changes when she meets Asher Morgan. He’s gorgeous and mysterious and is the only person Ember can’t sense death from. The silence he instills in her mind and body allows her to feel things she’s never been able to before, so despite her initial reservations, Ember lets Asher into her life and lets herself to get close to him. But the closer they get, the more Ember realizes that Asher is keeping secrets from her.
When unexplained deaths begin to surface in her town, Ember questions why she can’t see Asher’s death and what it is he’s hiding from her.
I really enjoy Jessica’s books, despite my advancing years! THis book was no exception (though I went for the mature version, and not the YA one). A different story premise, and the Sorensen really conveys the feelings Ember has quite well. I struggle with the whole writing poetry on the walls type thing, but then, I do neither of those things. It doesnt detract from the storyline.
A freebie starter to the series, well worth a read. A solid B from me.
