Publisher's Summary

A realm of monsters. A world of lies. She belongs to both.

My name is Emberly, and everything I’ve ever been told is a lie.

Monsters don’t exist. Wrong.

The nightmarish spectrum world is just my imagination. Wrong.

In a few months, I’ll finally be free. Wrong.

It takes being dragged to a secret training academy in the mountains to unravel the truth. My captors - an elite race of angel-born warriors called Nephilim.

The deadliest of them all is an arrogant shape shifter, Steel. He’s gorgeous, lethal, hot-headed...and convinced I’ll be the death of them all.

Maybe he’s right. As soon as I show up, the monsters that have haunted me my entire life breach the academy walls. My only hope of saving my new friends is learning how to control my powers, but when a stunning betrayal hurts someone I care about, I have an impossible choice.

Stay and fight for a place to belong...or decide once and for all that I’m better off alone.

Enter the spectrum world, a realm in-between worlds where shadow beasts draw blood, reality is a maze of twisted lights and sounds, and life goals are whittled down to just one: survive.

Fans of Jennifer L. Armentrout and Cassandra Clare will love this Crescent City meets Crave mash up!

Buy Now to step into the spectrum world....

All the stars to this amazing audiobook!

Can I give this book more than five stars?! That's what this book needs! It has everything that I love in a book. Excellent characters, a school setting, and a plot that kept me interested from start to finish. I thought I loved the print version of this book, but man, hearing it narrated just made the whole story come to life!

Our MC is Emberly, she's a bit different and a loner. She has episodes where she gets anxious and dips into what she calls "the spectrum". It's like this world, but brighter. She sees auras there. She knows she's different. She's been bounced from foster home to foster home and finally decided to hit the streets on her own.

Some big guys show up and try to take her away. They know her name and know she's different. Then the dude turns into a lion right in front of her eyes and she loses it. She fights back and they end up getting her anyway.

She wakes up at Seraph Academy and is told everyone there is like her. But she's still an anomaly even among her own people. The rest of the story is monsters coming for her and her trying to figure out what the hell Steel's problem is.

Why are the Forsaken hunting her? Why must she be the anomaly? And what the heck is Steel's problem?!

So unexpected!

I started this audiobook by chance! I didn’t expect to like it at all. I was in a book slum and needed something to get me out of it.
The story is captivating, the characters are likable, and the romance is believable and slow burn. Which is the best kind of you ask me since it gives you a chance to get to know the MC and insert yourself in their place (don’t you do that)?

This is the first book of a series. As the result, there’s some level of information sharing on the world but we learn with the character. She was dumped in a new world with new rules but she doesn’t have to loose her humanity to be part of it. She is not weak or gullible. She doesn’t act stupid or make silt mistakes. She’s not familiar with the angel born world, so we learn as she learns. And while not unpredictable, really, there’s plenty to the story the keep it compelling. Overall, a solid and entertaining read and I’m looking forward to the next book.

Great Story, slow at some points

I really enjoyed this book, the narration was a little fast and Adam Gold didn't come in to narrate until the epilogue but overall I loved that characters and the storyline. The description doesn't really do this book justice

Interesting and engaging

The narrator does a good job at depicting the story. However, sometimes it is hard to tell when the sentence ends and the next one begin. It's also difficult to tell what are thoughts inside of the main character's head and what is actually being said

Brilliant and can’t wait for more

Absolutely brilliant!! I listened to the audio version and it was narrated beautifully really bringing this great story to life.
This is book 1 in the Fallen Legacies series by Julie Hall. I can’t wait to get to book 2.
Emberly is a great leading lady. She has lived a horrible life after being abandoned as a baby and she has bounced from foster home to foster home then eventually having to live on the street. She can see into what she calls the spectrum world and the monsters within.
When living in the street she is kidnapped and taken to a secret training academy. Here she finds out she is Angel born. She decides to stay and learn more about what she can do to protect herself.
Staying means she needs to be around the gorgeous but mean boy Steel who hates her believing she will bring put his family in danger. He is really horrible to her but they share a deep connection.
Great world building and honestly I can’t wait for more! Highly recommend this 5/5 read!

I cannot rave about this book enough

Honestly, I really enjoyed this book. The narrator does an excellent job. The story is captivating and funny. I loved the world building. I really have a soft spot for the Twins (Greyson and Sterling) and especially their interactions with Emberly. Not to mention Emberly is really easy to like and root for. I loved this listen- just jump in you won't be disappointed.

Fun to see the characters brought to life :)

I don't usually listen to the audiobook of a story I've already read as an ebook, but since I Loved this story so much, I couldn't pass up the chance to see it brought to life (read: I'll mainly be reviewing the narrator's performance, not so much the story).

It was really fun to see the characters brought to life and have some of my favorites scenes being (voice) acted (the gym fighting scene is one of my favs). Now, a couple of issues I had were that Emberly's voice took me a while to get used to (though I eventually did), and I wasn't completely sold on Deacon's voice. Also, I always have an issue when characters are yelling, since most of the time it seems as if they're hoarse/stage whispering (but I think that's a pet peeve of mine).

Still, these issues notwithstanding, I really loved Ash and Tinkle's voices, as well as being able to tell apart Greyson and Sterling (most of the time), though I also found it funny that, to me, Nova sounded like the female version of Sterling (at least in the beginning). Oh, and Vanessa's nuances and portrayal of emotions for the rest of the story (from sarcasm and whispers to hurt, vulnerability, and just Emberly's inner monologue) were definitely on point.

As for Adam, that epilogue is just a teaser of his abilities, but based on it, I could listen to him all day long, which makes me all the more excited to see him narrate Steel's POV chapters in Forging Darkness. ~4.5 stars

What a fantastic new world!


Emberly is going to be an interesting character and I'm excited to see how she
develops as this series moves forward.
Vanessa made the story easy to listen to and Adam was a pleasant surprise.
Can't wait to listen to book 2, Forging Darkness!

Enchanting

This is a brilliant and exciting start to a new series. The fantastic writing really brings the characters and their world to life and captures your attention making it difficult to stop listening from the very beginning.

The narration is a joy to listen to and easily transports you to another world.

Very enjoyable start to the series!

I really enjoyed listening to the audio version of Stealing Embers! The narration is very well done for the most part, although it was a bit fast for my taste in some places. I definitely still enjoyed the story, and the narrator does a very good job of voicing the different characters.

The story is interesting and well written. I particularly enjoyed the world building and learning about the different kinds of Nephilim and magic! I also really enjoyed Ember’s character as well as Ash. Steel is a major jerk in this book but maybe he’ll turn around yet. I found some of the dialogue annoying at times when the author used modern slang/juvenile language but sometimes it was funny so it wasn’t all bad. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to the sequel!

AMAZING STORY 👏

"I'll accept a wide variety of suffering to hold on to my freedom. "

"On a bad day I'm a lot of things, but dumb isn't usually one of them."

"With a shake of my head, I shatter my unease. I don't have room for frivolous emotions right now. Fear gets you dead."

This is an INCREDIBLE story that is so hard to put down. Like I skipped my nap time to read it...and I'm a professional napper ya'll. The characters are so loveable. Beautiful, rich descriptions. Pulse, pounding action. Romantic tension. Enemies to lovers anyone?🙌🏻 Hilarious dialogue. Slap yourself in the face moments. ...ugh, so much good stuff.

Our MC Emberly is actually a homeless orphan. 🤯 Did not expect that. (It's not a spoiler bc you find this out on page 1.) It adds some fun quirks to her character.

One of the characters gives me Cate vibes from The Darkest Minds. If you've seen the movie she's played by Mandy Moore.

Steel (our enemy love interest) is one tough, sexy, brooding beast🦁

Her friend Sterling is the epitome of a hot, funny, super flirty dude. He's one of my favorite characters.

Love Emberly's gal pal, Ash. I love when authors include a really great friendship.

I love Emberly's little gang. They're all so much fun with their own personalities. They're very relatable, very real.

Definitely, definitely, definitely READ THIS BOOK!
.
The Narrators are freaking fantastic!! Vanessa Moyen is one of my top favorites and Adam Gold makes a perfect Steel 👌 🦁
