Publisher's Summary

Mya's world is falling apart. After a series of earthquakes, deadly animals with glowing red eyes begin attacking people and start the spread of a zombie-like plague. Safety is just a memory as she tries to make her way home. When a different creature attacks the people helping her reach Oklahoma City, Mya is sure she'll never see the light of another day.

Despite his eerie green eyes and very sharp teeth, the grey-skinned creature is more intelligent and humanlike than he first appears. He's determined to keep Mya by his side and protect her from the new world's dangers. When his path starts taking her further away from home, she must choose between safety and her family.

Contains mature themes.

Pleasantly surprised!

I really enjoyed this book. I liked that it was from Mya's point of view and you find out things as she does. Drav slowly learns to speak. I bought the second book already... looking forward to listing to it.

A thrilling apocalyptic roller coaster ride!

Demon Ember is a thrilling apocalyptic, roller coaster ride of a story. I could not put it down. I have previously read works by Becca Vincenza but Melissa Haag is new to me. They make a fantabulous duo. There are tons of stories out about the zombie apocalypse but Becca & Melissa’s story has a unique twist. Somehow a portal has opened and unleashed hellhound and demon like creatures on Earth. The infected humans are left in a zombie like state but don’t count them out (can’t say more w/o a spoiler here). Mya is struggling to return home and find her family. She runs into one such demon, Drav. For reasons unknown to Mya at time, Drav spares her life and aids her in getting home. Again, no spoilers but trust me May is in for quite an adventure.

Normally I only listen to my audiobooks while in the car but this story was so thrilling I could not wait to finish. Luckily, I own the paperback too. So between audio and reading I finished it in no time. I could not get away from this story. I had to finish it. Demon Ember is well written and I could definitely pick out aspects of both writers in the story. Becca & Melissa mesh well together and have written a fantastic series. The narrator, Dara Rosenberg did a fabulous job bringing this story to life. She heightened the emotions of Mya so that I really connected and felt the story. i hope she has continued the series.

Demon Ember is book 1 in The Resurrection Chronicles so of course it ended in a heart stopping cliff hanger. Lucky for me, the other books are out so I can delve right back in.
