5 out of 5 stars

The Embers We Seek is book one in A Rebel Princess Serial, written by Acacia K. Parker was a gripping read that had me hooked from start to finish. This is the first book that I have read by this author. Wow I really enjoyed this short story and can’t wait until I get to read the next part in this series. The main character is well written with a strong sense of duty. The story line was unique and different.

There were some parts in this short story that reminded me of Game of Thorns but instead of Dragons we had Hell hounds. (And I loved Game of Thrones). LOL

Wren is a captain and is sworn to protect the soldiers she leads into battle, which includes preventing a potential massacre in an upcoming campaign that could mean the end of the war in hero’s. But defying orders from her Lord could mean a noose around her neck. That if she gets caught.

I don’t want to go into too much and give the storyline away but this is a must read…. I highly enjoyed it.

The Embers We Seek: Prequel | War of Giants (A Rebel Princess Serial Book 1) by Acacia K. Parker is a great afternoon read! This story is completely original and left me wanting more (in a good way). It only took me a few hours to read which is great when I need a fix but don’t have a lot of time. I can’t wait for the next episode.

4 Stars

Not my chosen genre but I love the idea about these books being a serial and am really looking forward to reading all 10 episodes. The cover drew me in and the beautiful writing kept me hooked.

A super quick read that felt like a full length novel with the amount of content, yet didn’t feel all crammed in. I really liked Wren as a main character and can not wait for the rest of her story and adventures. The fairytale retelling is awesome and this story is about strength, determination and sacrifice. It was completely Awesome.

Highly recommend

Four Stars

The Embers We Seek: Prequel, War of Giants is the first book in A Rebel Princess Serial by Acacia K. Parker. This is a short paranormal book that builds a big world in a short amount of time. We are introduced to Wren and her small battalion of fighters who are trying to prevent mass casualties by going in to battle first. This book had me hooked from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until the last. Things don’t go as planned, even when you have the best laid plans, so going in with little planning leads to unexpected consequences. This fast read has me wanting more. Ms. Parker has my interest in this serial and I can’t wait for part two.

The Embers We Seek: Prequel | War of Giants (A Rebel Princess Serial Book 1) By Acacia K. Parker. While this is a short read it definitely packed a punch in the amazing writing department. From page one I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. This is my first read by this author and I’m excited for more. I felt this story was one of a kind which I loved because it’s a bit of a whole new adventure. The characters are complex and I felt a connection even in a short period of time. I can’t wait to read more from this author and see where readers are taken next! Five stars for a book that took me by surprise!

The Embers We Seek: Prequel | War of Giants (A Rebel Princess Serial Book 1) by Acacia K. Parker is a fairy tale/fantasy novella. I immediately l-o-v-e-d this story, instantly devouring it. From the characters, to the details and the location(s), this short story was excellently written. The method is which the author is delivering this story was thoughtfully done and I think it will add greater appeal as the story/series progresses. Just enough to whet your appetite and anxious await for what’s to come!

it was amazing


This book is a prequel for War of Giants, but is also a serial in A Rebel Princess. And although that’s a little confusing, this short story is really well written. With an adventurous story line and tons of fantasy characters. Wren’s story is interesting fast-paced and attention-grabbing. I’m not a huge fan of short stories but I’m already looking for more in the rebel princess serial.

War of Giants is the first book in Acacia K. Parker’s The Embers We Seek story, which is a Rebel Princess Serial. The Embers We Seek is a fantasy retelling of the Cinderella story, told in novelette-length instalments that are released every month.
As the Prequel, War of Giants has a story that establishes key characters including heroine, Wren, and the setting in the world of Heros. It’s a vibrant fantasy world with plenty of conflict, mystery and magic.
Wren is a military captain, seeking to resolve a conflict with as little loss of life as possible. She is willing to disobey her superiors and put her own life at risk to achieve this. She’s helped along the way by her friend Mor and a group of soldiers who have volunteered to undertake a risky mission. I really liked Mor and hope we learn more about her background in the coming books (I was hoping Mor was a love interest but alas, no).
I have mixed feelings about the format. It was nice to be able to get through a whole story in one sitting, but there was a lot I would have liked more time on, particularly around the climax and the consequences of it. It felt like there was a long build up to a quick conclusion. It did leave me wanting more, though, so I’ll have to read the upcoming instalments!
For me, this book gets four stars. I’d recommend it to fans of fantasy and fairy tales, particularly for readers who can’t always get through longer books.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well I do believe I have found myself a new obsession with The Embers We Seek from Acacia K. Parker. I have never had the pleasure of reading anything by Ms. Parker prior to this and so I went in blind. I was sold on the book from the moment I saw the gorgeous and flashy cover and the idea of visiting one of my favorite fairy tales in a new light. I was not one moment disappointed.

Be fully prepared to devour this gem in a short time as it only contains 58 pages of story. I was shocked at how I still felt as if I had read a 200 page book by the time I had finished. I love this is going to be a serial story told in ten parts and released rather quickly at one a month until done. I am super thankful because I am already dying to know what will happen next. In the meantime I will go back and check out what else there is to see from Acacia K. Parker as I wait for them to release.
