But when will we get the next installment? I NEED to know what happens to Heather!
Great for middle grade - middle school. Clean but with battle scenes. Full of adventure.
Like "Two Towers" or "The Empire Strikes Back", "Ember Falls" challenges us by stretching the characters we have come to love. Some of the stretching comes from acute loss. Some of it comes from having to dig deep with in. Some of the stretching comes from having to learn to forgive and trust characters who have proven dangerous in the past but seem to be giving us good reasons to see them in a new light.
Like other middle stories, so much is unresolved at the end that we are loathe to close the back cover. And yet, it does end well. It is crafted with care and respect for it's readers. Even in true sadness, there are substantial reasons to hope. Even in defeat there is victory - and in victory, defeat.
My children are 5, 7, and 9 and are deeply loyal to Smith's storytelling. The Green Ember is our regular bedtime audiobook (Ember Falls will be now that it is officially released) because it, like Narnia, is a world worth wandering around in, but also a world safe enough to get lost in. Ember Falls is more intense than Green Ember but that did not hamper our enjoyment or our appreciation of the story in the least.
Unlike so many books today, Smith delivers on the promise of telling new stories with old souls. These books are not just wholesome adventures, they are a battle for truth, goodness, and beauty in the moral imagination of our families.
Heather, Picket, Smalls and Emma are always welcome in my home. I am grateful that my children will grow up with friends like these who are informing their moral decision making and fostering their imaginative play.
