Embers and Echoes Review

480 pages
Ashline Wilde may have needed school to learn that she is actually a reincarnated goddess, but she’s ready to move beyond books. She leaves her California boarding school behind and makes for Miami, where she meets a new group of deities and desperately seeks her sister Rose, the goddess of war. But she’s also looking for love—because even though her romance with Cole had to be snuffed, Ash is a volcano goddess—and she doesn’t get burned.

As you may well know, I love a good book stuffed with mythology. As the second book in the Wildefire trilogy, this doesn't disappoint. This series pulls from different mythological lore and melds it together in one awesome storyline. Ashline returns as the main character and she is her usual strong and determined self. After everything that happened in California, Ashline only wants to protect her friends from the terrible things that seems to happen around her. Tragedy seems to follow Ashline wherever she goes and Miami is no exception. We see some old faces and some new ones and there is the usual romantic edge as well as betrayals to be had. I really loved that the characters aren't predictable in the slightest, they always do the unexpected. This novel is exceptionally action-packed without a dull moment to spare. There are a lot of new revelations and interesting unexpected twists. I definitely recommend this novel but only after reading Wildefire.
