This audiobook was provided by its author, Jennifer Alsever, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Thanks, Jennifer!

Ember Burning is a book that will take you on quite an adventure. This story is quite the twist of mind bending through reality. If you like a bit of a trip with some time lapse in between this may be the story for you.

All in all, Jennifer Alsever did a good job when it comes to writing this story. There are a lot of facets to each scene in the story as well as each character. Just when you think you have learned what you didn’t know about the characters there is more. The scenes are described so clearly that you are pretty much there with the characters. Honestly, my real problem is that I really want Ember to see that there is more to her story than what she currently does. I’m kind of in that moment where all I wish to do is shake her. Otherwise I like her and Trey the most so far. The other characters, I’m not the fondest of.

Moira Todd also did a really good job narrating Ember Burning. She really brought the characters and scenes to life. I could feel the highs and lows with Ember. I could also feel the confusing aspects involving Zoey. That emotion is definitely a big deal for me when listening to a story and Moira did an amazing job portraying this.

Overall the production of Ember Burning went off without a hitch. The story flowed rather seamlessly throughout. I felt it was a little slow at times, but for the most part Jennifer always managed to capture my attention again scene after scene. I really hope that Ember gets a grasp on herself and learns how to combat the craziness in her life, but for now I think her journey is truly just now getting started.
