In January of 2014, the last book in the trilogy, From the Embers, was released, thusly completing the trilogy.

Wow, this is unbelievable! I am writing yet another not so good review. :-( I really wish I would have gotten a sample of this book PRIOR to purchasing it. I saw all the "Good Reviews" and thought it was going to be good. I will not ever trust a good review again. This is the second book in a row that has done this to me!

About the book: I have to say, I really like the cover. Well done! I liked what the story was about. Again, well done. I did NOT like the way it was written. It seemed like the the Author was trying too hard in her writing. I really believe this story could have been quite good if Candace didn't push her writing so hard when trying to sound mysterious or funny or what ever emotion she was pushing on the character to show or feel. (Please forgive this analogy but this is the best way for me to explain how I felt about reading this book: It just read like a High School kid trying to pretend they are an Author.) Another problem with this book is that it doesn't seem like Candace actually paid attention to what she was writing. For example: Towards the end of Chapter 3 and then at the beginning of Chapter 4 she wrote this: "But he didn't look at me when he said it, something he only does when he's lying" THEN wrote: "He didn't look at me, which was what he often did when he was uncomfortable." Yes, Candace is writing about the same Characters. It threw me for a loop to where I literally stopped reading and skimmed back a few pages to see what I swore I had just read a minute ago.

I will say this again, I do like the story. I do NOT like how it was written. If Candace can take the bad with the good, she will be an excellent writer one day.

Everything about this book drew me in.. from the book description and the cover.. and the author didn't disappoint either.. the story is absolutely incredible from start to finish its one magical ride full of adrenaline! It's absolutely Amazing!!!
The main character Aurora learns that she is a dragon and that "The Fates" are out to destroy her before she can come into her power and save her people.. she has hard choices to make along the way and not a lot of time to do it.. she has to find three keys that will help her get back home before the full moon!

Anyone and everyone that knows me, knows how much I love anything to do with high fantasy. Magick in all it's forms is fascinating to me, colors my world, drives my imagination and completely fills my senses. Weave dragons (they are magickal creatures, after all), in to a story with Mages and ancient prophecies...well, I am all aboard and ready to fly! Candace has created such a world. Plumb full of magick, intrigue, lots action and many surprises. Her characters are fun and fresh, and I found myself immediately connected. From the very first page she has you engaged and eager to learn about Aurora and her destiny. The picture she paints of Aurora's beginning is beautiful and intense...a bit frightening. And then...BAM! We are thrust into a modern world, where Aurora knows nothing of her past and finds herself and her best friend for life, Fenn, in a race against time and all odds to quickly discover what has been hidden from the both of them in order to fulfill a prophecy neither of them was even aware of. Wow, right?! It doesn't happen all that quickly. We do get to meet Aurora and Fenn and spend a short time with them in their every day life. It seems fairly ordinary. Aurora is content and feels safe with Fenn. He's been an amazing friend and they have a connection that cannot be broken. But, she's never felt like she belonged. Not knowing her parents or what has happened to them, she feels something is missing. A piece of her that makes her feel lost and unfulfilled. All that changes on a mundane day at work and we're sent on a wild ride, as the pair are forced to accept and follow a path they no nothing about. They discover a world they had no idea existed and as they begin this difficult journey, they find they have to make choices that may not only separate them, but also end their lives.Read more ›

Do you have books in your collection that you hold onto because you want to read them again, or want to share with your kids, or can't wait for the next in the series? Of course you do. So do I, and this one is all three for me. Rory is everything a heroine should be: uncertain of her place in the world, looking for more in life, ready to embrace her journey, strong enough to battle evil but soft enough to accept help where it's offered-often from her leading man, but also from a great supporting cast of characters. Fenn makes a great hero: he's strong, loyal, but has his faults. And when he can't be there for her, there are the others. What a great supporting cast Knoebel wrote into her debut novel. She has woven a wonderful tale with interesting lore, a fresh take on medieval creatures, and rich and entertaining characters. My biggest complaint is that I can't immediately read book two.

This was ok for a YA reader, if you're not an adult and not too picky. There's a lot in this book that reminds me of other books. The plot for the most part (for an avid reader) was transparent. Though, this is not a horrible book, I just didn't find myself saying wow! It just was ok. I think for someone younger, they may get into this a lot more. But for an adult who likes YA, it was nothing special for me. There were a few things about the editing that irked me too. In one place, she tells Fenn that his name was mentioned in the notes, but the notes that were in the book, don't show his name at all. There's a few places where I got confused as to what was going on. It just needs a quick go through with a copy editor. LIke I said, for a YA, teen reader, this would be great. Not for your average adult who likes YA.
