Oshun has everything a young pop star could ever want - fame, fortune, and beauty to spare. But there's something dark inside of her, rising like the tide, fighting to be heard. Something that terrifies her. Because once she lets it out, she knows there's no going back. Ember is drowning. Fighting for consciousness, struggling to make sense of the strange dreams she's been having - prophecies of murder, deception, and blackmail. Maddie is barely staying afloat with her best friend Ember still missing, presumed dead. Then she learns a pop star may be involved in Ember's disappearance....

I really like the titles EMBER BURNING and OSHUN RISING. The titles alone draw me in. The stories are gripping. In this tale, Ember is still lost to herself and must mentally claw her way back to reality. Great follow up book in the series.

Imagine being liquid enough to fool around with the building blocks of life just to create a park full of zombies to cash in on the general public's infatuation with the undead. Now imagine, as it often does, something going wrong with that concept and zombies ruining the world for everybody. Next, imagine dinosaurs returning to prominence in a Planet of the Apes-type scenario and evolving so they fill all the roles we humans did before the fall of the species. So our story begins. A group of dino-commandos are sent in to uncover the fate of their missing colleagues....

So the apocalypse happens, and humanity is wiped out. The dinosaurs rise to take over. Or maybe humanity never happened, and dinosaurs just evolved into the characters of this book. Creative and imaginative

I've spent my entire life running from my past and staying out of trouble. That's how I've kept alive ever since my parents were killed by the Black Dragon, who's ruled the world under her oppressive talons for as long as anyone can remember. But it's hard to keep a low profile when four handsome strangers turn up in your village claiming you're destined to save the world. According to them, they've been chosen by the gods to become elemental dragons - and I'm their mate.

Stroke the Flame is the first in a new series, It is an introduction to the world and what happens in it. I think some of the events could have been elaborated more, but the smaller scenes were brief while still giving you all the information you needed to understand what was going on.
