City in Embers
Stacey Marie Brown
Zoey Daniels has been tossed from foster home to foster home, where she grows up fast and tough. When she is placed in her “last-chance” home, she finds a reason to stay and turn her life around: her foster sister, Lexie, who is paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. Zoey will do anything to keep her safe. After high school, Zoey is hired by a special government agency, the Department of Molecular Genetics (DMG), where she meets the other reason to remain: Daniel, her co-worker. The man she loves.
But there is something unique about Zoey. She can see fae. Because of this, the DMG hires her to work as a Collector: catching, researching, testing, and using the fae to save human lives. The work never registers on her sympathy radar. She was raised to think of fae as beasts that feed on humans and want to destroy them.
When devastation hits Seattle, Zoey's whole world is turned upside down. The electric storm connects her to a ruthless fae, a Wanderer named Ryker, whose dealings expose them to even more trouble and danger. They embark on a journey, running and hiding from both the government and fae, both of which threaten their lives and those they love.
Did you know I won a giveaway? Yep, I won a 5$ GC! I was so excited of course, I went book hunting asap. I have read other books by Stacey Marie Brown. So I thought I would grab this one too. I was not disappointed.
Zoey is in love, with a man that she will might never have. When things take an unexpected twist, she finds her self in the company of one hard headed fae Ryker (who I am in love with). The longer they spend time together, the closer they become. But things are holding back her feelings for him. Along with them being hunted across the city, now isn’t the time to reconsider how she feels about him. Being in love with all things fae, this girl is now obsessed with this book and the characters. I can not wait to get more money and buy the remaining series.
I love Stacey Marie Brown’s work. Not only does she write NA, but she always writes YA. Which I plan on reviews as well! I don’t know about you but I am excited!!
I am in my early 20’s, I have a big loving adopted family, and I am a dedicated book lover. I currently reside in the hot, sunny state of Texas. I joined Alisha’s blog in Nov 2015. When she found me in a NaNo Chat room for the Houston area. My main genres vary between horror and sick puppy-love romance. Usually depends on my moods. But my favorites are Sci-fi (Aliens) & MC (Motorcycle Club) Romance.
The only other thing you need to know about me is: I eat books for breakfast.
