It will follow you. And ignoring it can have devastating consequences. Consequences she's still reeling from.
But when her end of year plans take a drastic turn, she decides to face what she'd been trying to avoid and heads to Miami to track down the sister she knows only from visions. Her six-year-old sister Rose.
With barely any information to go on, she only knows that she has to try. Because her latest visions reveal that Rose could be in even more danger than she was before. And returning to Scarsdale without her is not a future Ash is willing to accept.
Being a volcano goddess may have its perks, a fiery temper not always being one of them, but it also means that things can turn deadly. Fast.
So when the search for her sister lands her in the path of a group of gods and goddess that have a bloodthirsty agenda, Ash must decide whether saving her sister is enough or whether she will have to become a hero for all of humanity.
Embers & Echoes is the dynamic, riveting, wildly entertaining and action-packed follow-up to Karsten Knight's powerhouse debut novel Wildefire. This sequel, that brings together gods and goddesses from around the globe, not only packs a punch, but has an easy flow that will make the pages fly.
The author doesn't just continue this incredibly unique story. He broadens the setting, lengthens the timeline, enlarges the cast of characters and expands the world.Read more ›
"You make a decision whether you want to spend your life staring at dark horizons... or whether you want to spend it catching every sunrise that you can." -- Wes
Leaving her last relationship literally melted in the ground and swearing off future entanglements with supernatural boys, Ash has to make her plans for summer vacation. But, she doesn't get any time to be the usual carefree high school student. With a lead on where to find her kidnapped little sister and how to rescue her older sister from Hell, there's no rest for this reincarnated Polynesian volcano goddess.
"MIA" is her destination -- The airport code for Miami is appreciated by Ash's sense of humor. There, she will become embroiled with more gods and goddesses. Some will become her friends. Some will become her enemies. Some she never wanted to see again.
Internally, Ash must face that her sisters might not want to be found. Her little sister never knew her, and Ash was the one who put her older sister in Hell. From so many angles, still grieving over friends lost in the gods' battles at Blackwood Academy in the first Wildfire novel and watching horrors exploding around her, Ash wonders if she is on the right course.
And whose team are the other gods playing for? Colt gives Ash back some of the memories that all gods have taken from them from lifetime-to-lifetime. But what do they mean, and will they show her what she needs to know in time?
With all that, Ash still has to remember to call home.Read more ›
This is going to be a very brief review because 1) I don't want to spoil the book and 2) There is way too much to put in the review to list it all out here. So, let me start off by saying that this was a beautiful sequel to continue a beautiful first novel in the series.
The sequel continued exactly where the first book left off. We learn a crucial part of the 'prophecy' ( if you can call the scroll that Jack gave the gods a prophecy) and a character gets seriously heart broken. On the up side, we get to meet two really great new characters (who are also Gods) and see the unraveling of a potential new relationship... one I was sitting at the edge of my seat to read any piece of information the author gave me. We only briefly get to meet our old characters from the first book, Wildefire and we get to know a little bit more about Ash's little sister, Rose. Lastly, we get a new set of villians with this book, and I DO say villians because, afterall, true villains from myths and fairytales always have super powers. You guessed it guys, they are gods as well! Well, all except for one ;)
If this hasn't convinced you to read the sequel to Wildefire then let me give you my assurances. This book was just as good as the first, if not better. We get to experience Ash using and mastering her powers and see a whole new range of different relationships emerge, be they friendship, hatred, to romance. We get to learn so much more depth within Ash, and thanks to a CERTAIN character, we get to learn alot more about Ash's past lives. This was a magnificent book and I praise Karsten Knight once more on a job very well done. 10/10 for sure.
