Ember, by Jessica Sorensen - Review & Giveaway - A SupaGurl Tour

Ember (Death Collectors, #1)

What if you knew when someone was going to die?

For seventeen-year-old Ember, life is death. With a simple touch, she knows when someone will die. It’s her curse and the reason she secludes herself from the world. The only person who knows her secret is her best friend Raven.

Then she meets Asher Morgan. He’s gorgeous, mysterious, and is the only person Ember can't sense death from. So when he pushes into her life, she doesn’t mind.

But when unexplained deaths start to haunt her town, Ember starts questioning why she can’t sense Asher's death and what he may be hiding.

My Rating:


This is the beginning of what seems to be an amazing series, if this first novel is any indication of what is in store.  If I didn't have to get up for work the next morning, I would have read this through the night, non-stop.

Ember is a young woman with a gift.... or a curse. She can see how you will die through a mere touch to your skin.  The visions are horrifying, and that kind of knowledge is one that she wishes she could do without. When her father disappears and foul play is suspected, she becomes the #1 suspect. Though she is never arrested, and her father never found, in a small town, rumors run rampant.  Understandably, she is withdrawn and not very social.

Enter two mysterious young men. Asher and Cameron. One humble but intense.  The other arrogant but poetic. Both have their eyes on Ember.  Right off the bat, you know they are not what they seem.  And when they both come into this small town, a series of mysterious occurrences begin to happen.  People begin to disappear, some found dead. Ember is threatened by strangers with X tattoos, and her life is endangered on more than one occasion by a mysterious culprit. Not to mention some of the dark things she begins to see around town, which make her fear for her sanity.  Her best friend, Raven, behaves like herself one minute, and like a stranger the next. It is clear that something is brewing in Ember's small town, and she is at the center of it all.

The sexual intensity between Ember and Asher surprised me. In terms of sexual content, the novel was fairly tame, as most YA novels are. But you could feel their deep connection and attraction between them. A mere kiss had my heart palpitating. That is how intense the writing of this novel was.

It was a dark, intriguing novel that was action packed from beginning to end. There wasn't a single character, no matter how small their role, that didn't catch and keep my attention.  I truly did not want this novel to end, and I am really anxious for the next book of the series

To Enter the Giveaway!

We have one e-copy up for grabs of Ember, by Jessica Sorense. On impulsive, I decided to remove the rafflecopter for this giveaway, and have you answer a question instead.

Ember's special ability is to be able to see the death of the person she touches. Pretty morbid huh? So keeping this in mind, we want to know what you think would be worst ability/gift/power to have, excluding the one Ember has.  We will randomly pick one of the comments for the giveaway draw on November 6th and announce the winner. Leave us your email so we know how to reach you!!

Have fun! Can't wait to read your comments!


  1. burn people with your touch. could never have physical contact with anyone. thanks for the giveaway.

  2. I think perhaps a succubus ability might be pretty awful. I cannot imagine sucking the life out of someone you care for to survive or by accident or others by choice. Then again seeing into the future in general might be really hard - I think it might be very difficult to stay positive knowing there were hopeless situations coming. Thank you for the thought provoking fun. I love the cover on Ember and the premise and am so glad you enjoyed it, definitely cannot wait to read it myself.

  3. Draining someone of their life just by your touch. Like Rogue in X-Men. It would suck never having skin-to-skin contact with anyone.

  4. Hey guys! Thank you for participating in this one. Talk about good odds of winning this one!

    if any of you is interested in a girl with succubus powers, come back on the 8th for my review of "Beg for Mercy". There is a giveaway of a copy for that one too.

    Without further delay (Drum Roll)

    Congratulations to Sherry Fundin. Your name was randomly selected from the three entries for this win.
