Loved it! Ember was a wicked, dark, sensual, twisted and enthralling read.

Oh wow! A super entertaining, dark and twisted retelling of Cinderella. The writing was great, and I loved the world building and imagination that went into this story. Very clever.

The heat level is 'hot', and the author does use some crude language a few times normally reserved for erotica. (view spoiler) It worked in the context of keeping the story dark and funny, while also in pushing the boundaries on Ember's character.

It is a short story, but it felt like a full novel. She packs quite a bit into the story!

Thanks Crista! It's a long novella, still a quick read. It felt like a full-size novel too. I believe the author got picked up by Carina Press because of this book being so good. Enjoy!

Thanks Kristen, I think you will love it. The story is a bit dark, different, romantic, clever...etc.
