Author Jennifer Alsever delivers an addictive story ideal for fans of The Uglies, We Were Liars, and Before I Fall about a teen grieving over her parent's tragic death who becomes entangled with a mysterious forest teeming with urban legends of strange disappearances and witchcraft.
Ember Trouve used to be alive, driven to become a musician and on a path to college. That was before her parents died. One day, after venturing into the fabled Trinity Forest, she goes missing. Now, Ember must confront the truth behind her parents' death - or lose herself to the forest forever.
In this fresh and compelling novel, Jennifer Alsever creates a paranormal world of loss, mystery, love, and survival as Ember searches for escape - and a path back to herself. Ember Burning is the first installment of the three-book Trinity Forest series.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Trey is my favorite character. I think he is the most selfless character in the story. Ember gets on my nerves a little sometimes. She's so book smart, but she can also be so stupid sometimes.
What about Moira Todd’s performance did you like?
I thought her dry comedy fit in Embers voice very well
Any additional comments?
It really is a page turner. The mystery has you guessing until the end. There is romance, but it's not a romance book. Not only that, but it digs into some tough subject matter that many teens struggle with. I want to hear book two to find out what happens!
