Ember (Death Collectors, Book 1) by Jessica Sorensen

Book Description

 August 28, 2012

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 Review: 

The story revolves around 17 year old Ember. A girl who is from a small town and is cursed. It centers on Ember's ability to see more than the average eye and because of this she is an outcast. Writing a full review of this book would have to include spoilers and I don't want to do that. This book is worth reading. Sorensen gives angels and death a new twist making this story compelling, suspenseful, and romantic. It brings a new perspective to this genre making it unique. The fast pace and action scenes, as well as the mystery makes you want to continue reading. It has the right amount of romance without making it sappy like other YA paranormal romances, and it also has the right amount of lust without making it erotic and not suitable for minors. Like I said, I highly recommend this book. Jessica Sorensen has now climbed the list to one of my favorite writers. Her imagination and creativity are not lacking and demonstrate her talent in her stories. I cannot wait for book 2 to come out and find out what happens next.
