Review and Giveaway: Eyes of Ember by Rebecca Ethington






Eyes of Ember by Rebecca Ethington
(Imdalind #2)



Blurb:

Joclyn is in hiding, hunted by the man she still desperately loves. Ryland is gone, his mind erased, no memory of Joclyn remains. But, Joclyn’s heart desperately begs her to hold out hope. While, in reality the black eyed monster that possesses him, attempts to kill her over and over.

If it wasn’t for Ilyan, Joclyn would be dead by now. 

Ilyan. The man who once stalked her, is now Joclyn’s protector, the only thing she has left. He protects Joclyn from the men who seek to end her life, and while she is haunted by dreams where Ryland begs her to break the bond between them. 

Ilyan is there. Always there.

Ilyan trains and prepares her, teaching her everything she needs to know in the hope that one day she can avenge Ryland, if not protect herself from him.

And then there is her father.

The man who has never been there, is suddenly responsible for everything. And who he is has made Joclyn into something she never wanted to be.

The Silnỳ

My thoughts: Eyes of Ember (Imdalind #2)

4 STARS!



After loving book one in this series I couldn't wait to jump into this one.
I won't say I was dissapointed, at all! but I kinda liked the first one a little more.


First: I am absolutely mesmerized by the cover!

I liked the way the author gained depth in the characters without being repetitive.
I felt that Jos grew a lot and I really liked her. She is stronger and finds a motive to go on, not like in the first instalment that she was a but lost.
Though some situations with Ilyan make me mad at her. (I don't want to make a spoiler, can't tell!)

Ilyan... WOW! I really found in him what I was looking for. 

The love triangle was predictable but he was charming. I am his number one cheerleading! Though I would have liked more chemistry between them

Ry... well... you know where book one ended so, you also know what to expect, I like his new him. Muahahahaha! :P


We have some background here, I like that in books, not annoy you with dull details but remind you were the story stands. Here you can pick book 2 after a while of reading the first one and you will totally catch up with the story.


The writing is great, it flows smoothly, the story is original and fast paced. A lot of action and definitely left me wanting book 3.

When is it released? :P
