Ember by Kristen Callihan REVIEW

Ember by Kristen Callihan (Darkest London # 0.5)

Egalley thanks to Grand Central Publishing

Synopsis from Goodreads
Prequel to Firelight.
After a fire consumes the Ellis family fortune, the beautiful and resourceful Miranda finds herself faced with an impossible dilemma: enter a life of petty crime or watch her family succumb to poverty. But once her fiancé learns of her descent into danger—and of the strange, new powers she's discovered—saving her family may come at the high price of her heart.

When Lord Benjamin Archer's one chance for redemption is destroyed by corrupt London antiquarian Hector Ellis, he vows to take what Ellis values most—his daughter Miranda. Forced to hide his face behind masks, Archer travels the world hoping to escape the curse that plagues him so that he can finally claim his prize.

But once Archer returns home to London, will it be revenge he seeks? Or will the flame-haired beauty ignite new, undeniable desires?

It's a very short prequel, not even a novella, more like a novelette, so my review will be proportionally short as well. *grinning*

My advise is if you haven't read Firelight already, pick up this book first and see if you like the style of the author. If you've read Firelight already I don't think you should bother with Ember. It tells you the same things you found out about Archer and Miranda from Firelight already, but in a little bit more detail and chronologically up to the point of Archer's return to London. 

 So as I said, it's unnecessary to read Ember if you read Firelight already.

Ember - очень очень коротенькая предыстория к Firelight. Поэтому моё ревью тоже будет очень коротким.

Если вы не прочитали ещё полную книгу, этот приквел для вас. Он поможет почувствовать стиль автора и решить нравится он вам или нет. Если вы уже прочитали Firelight, Ember - это потеря вашего времени. Он рассказывает о событиях, о которых нам уже известно из полной книги, только добавляет немного деталей из жизни Миранды и Арчера вплоть до его возвращения в Лондон, поэтому смысла его читать нет.

*no rating*

Oh, I recently got hold of Firelight. This seems like an interesting little prequel. Seen a lot of these mini-prequels cropping up.

thanks I was wondering about this book, as I read firelight, now I think I'll pass to read the second one when it'll be possible.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
