City in Embers by Stacey Marie Brown
My rating: 4 ½ of 5 Stars
Collector, Zoey Daniels’, life shifts after Seattle is destroyed by an electrical storm, and she becomes tied to a Fae Wanderer named Ryker.
City in Embers is a fast-paced and imaginative book that I could not put down.
Zoey is a wonderful heroine. Raised in foster homes, she had a tough life. She does what she has to in order to persevere. She is a survivor. She is often underestimated, which goes to her advantage. My heart went out to her. She is an easy character to cheer for.
I enjoyed getting to know Ryker. He is the ultimate alpha male. He is strong both physically and mentally. He is a complex character that we discover a lot about during the story.
The dynamics between Zoey and Ryker throughout the novel was interesting. They start out as enemies and due to circumstances, they need to work together. They end up having a lot in common despite one being human and the other Fae.
I love Sprig. He adds a lot of humor to the story. I could totally picture the cute little monkey sprite. He seems like an adorable creature that would be great to snuggle with.
The plot was incredible. It takes place when The Electrical Current Storm from Darkness of Light (Darkness, #1) hits Seattle. I appreciated reading about what the people of Seattle had experienced as a result of that storm. The occurrence was a clever spin off into this series. City in Embers is well-written and full of unexpected twist. I look forward to the next book in the series, The Barrier Between.
