Blurb (from Goodreads):
Alone in the darkness, memories threaten to overwhelm him. The truth of what has happened haunts him day and night. It would be easy to let go. To forget who he was and where he came from. Easier if he didnt exist anymore at all. Every moment is a reminder of what he had and what he has lost. But there is one thing worth living for, fighting for, breathing for. He made a promise. And he intends to honour it.
*MAJOR SPOILERS- Don’t read if you haven’t read book 3 of the Cage of Lies series.*
I love Coal, so I definitely needed this book in my life! Embers is a novella which tells us what happened to Coal while he was taken away. Technically he was shot, so the rest of his crew saw him die but what they didn’t know was that the Governer and the wardens saved him in order to get the necessary information out of him about their mission.
I felt so bad for Coal, he was tortured so much but he never gave away anything. Yeah, technically he didn’t know the actual information but he still didn’t give out anything else. I love how much he’s fierce and loyal to the people he loves. Although he has no know idea if they are dead or alive. I could feel his frustration and pain, everything was so vividly potrayed. And I hated that Gregor so much! But I loved the ending, it was exactly how the 3rd book ended. Now I’m much more excited to read the next book and specially eager to know how they escape and finally teach these city people a lesson because they desperately need one!
Overall, Embers was a quick and short read which I easily finished in one sitting. It was fast paced and the writing flowed smoothly. This was definitely a bit tough too read because he faced so many tortures but overall it was a good read. Everything’s getting so intense and interesting, I really can’t wait to read the next book!
So guys, are you exited to read this book? Have you started this series or do you want to? Share your thoughts with me!
