The Lantern’s Ember
As a watchman, Jack has guarded his Otherworld crossroad for over 500 years, preventing unsuspecting Otherworld creatures, or humans, from accidentally passing through. Everything was perfect for Jack, until Ember. Posed as a human, Ember’s true nature as a witch was hidden, allowing for her to slip undetected through the crossroads.
Now Jack has no choice but to chase after Ember, protecting her innocent magic, as well as his own life; opening the door to dark, twisted adventures in a world filled with thieves, pirates, vampires, monsters, and werewolves.
With a story of lush, fanciful creatures known from dark fairytales, The Lantern’s Ember draws you in with a promise of grim creatures and magic. Full of dark creatures that will haunt your dreams, this story opens readers to another world, where they have rules, order, and dreams of their own. Coleen Houck delivers strong storytelling and great detail in a storyline that twists and turns into too many directions. While this is a story with an ultimate love ending, it is mainly about an innocent, young girl who finds herself accidentally falling into trouble, a watchman who gallantly has to follow after, and a legend that is born from their tale.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
