The Green Ember by S.D. Smith


This is a great story surrounding betrayal, tension, friendship, marred names and even redemption…not to mention swords and all that good stuff.

Publication: December 12th 2014

Synopsis: Heather and Picket are extraordinary rabbits with ordinary lives until calamitous events overtake them, spilling them into a cauldron of misadventures. They discover that their own story is bound up in the tumult threatening to overwhelm the wider world.

Kings fall and kingdoms totter. Tyrants ascend and terrors threaten. Betrayal beckons, and loyalty is a broken road with peril around every bend.

Where will Heather and Picket land? How will they make their stand?

Review/Thoughts: My friends held a book exchange not to long ago, and after exchanging books we sat around reading through them. This was the book I was given. I will admit. I wouldn’t have walked into a bookstore saw this sitting on the shelf and decided to buy it cause it looked/sounded interesting. Stories that are narrated from animals isn’t something I really get into, and when I saw this book I, honestly, was afraid it was going to be one of those books that I could get into.

I did enjoy this book. The story really pulled me on for the first two-hundred pages or so, and if it hadn’t I don’t think I wouldn’t have enjoyed this book the greatest.

Our main characters; Heather and Pickett are thrust into a chase–into an adventure within the first three to five chapters. That’s not exactly what I call dull and boring and because of that I was draw into the story and had a desire to read more, because it had so much action right up front. It did come to a lull later, but why their family was despised so much was a question I was eager to get an answer to.

Out of our main characters, Pickett is probably my favorite character. (I truly do like him.đŸ˜…) Helmer is next best. I like how he was written and, to be honest, when we first met him, he reminded me of Aragorn from Lord of the Rings.

Now, I did also think that the book needed to be given better editing than what it was given. Some sentences just sounded weird and slightly choppy for me. That’s really the only complaint I have with this book.

This is one of those books–series that I probably won’t end up buying for myself. If I ever end up with the rest of the series, it’s cause someone else bought them for me. And I won’t go out of my way to order them in from a library and read. If someone else gifts them to me, then I’ll gladly except and read them once I have been given them.

~Till the next Chapter~
