My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have found that the world of Fae is not only magical, it also some romance mixed in. I enjoyed the way the world was described and how it was introduced. The author did a good job of describing the world and the characters within it. The story has a way of pulling you in slowly and keeping your attention until the end. It is the perfect blend of fantasy, romance, mystery, and action. Ember and Gravyn, the story’s main characters had a connection from the beginning and it starts off rocky, but then quickly turns into a different kind of relationship. There were many different plot twists, but that just enhances where the story goes.

I really enjoyed this book! The author does a fantastic job of world building, and an even better job of character building. The courage with which Ember faces her challenges is inspiring and I would love to spend just one hour talking to her. The relationship between her and Gavyn was so realistic and I really enjoyed seeing it grow. The chosen family they build is just so heartwarming; I always enjoy reading about chosen families because I can relate – even having a good blood family, chosen family can be so important.

This book was hands down unstoppable good! This is the first book of this series and I can not wait for more! The story of Ember develops from her being lost, alone, an orphan into finding her place in a community she wasn’t prepared to find her future in. Gavyn caught me off guard in how he quickly changed as he realized Ember was more than just a thief. How he spent time “spying” on her and checking in all the while he was developing some feelings for her. I love how the author captured this and showed his softer side further on in the book. Jade, Zoie and Ada are the girlfriends we all want around. The build up to the excitement within the story was slower than I like but the details she gives on the background of these communities and the main characters history. I myself can not wait for more from this series. I like that it isn’t your typical book about magic and different “creatures”. It showed a different side of magic and how it could be a good thing when the right opportunity presents itself.

I love fantasy and I really enjoyed this book. It’s the first in a series, and I really enjoyed the mix of romance, politics, and magic all contained within this story. It’s full world-building that feels very integrated into the plotlines and revealed gradually throughout the book. But there is also a lot to Ember’s character development which I really enjoyed, as well as her falling in love with Gavyn, and all of the characters are well-drawn and complex. I will definitely be reading the next in this series.

I truly love books that build all of the characters not just one or the main one. This book kept me on my toes the whole time never knowing what I was going to get. Amazing character building and made me feel like I was there. And I like that it seems more hysterical than not. Great job to the author.

The Kingdom of Morvak seems like a great mountain realm with a divide between the peasant class (the territories below) and the magical nobility (the mountain top). But things are changing and the Faebloods are greedy to assert their continued control over the peasant humans. Ember has been raised on the run most her life. All she wants is to find others like her. To belong. Somewhere. Anywhere. She doesn’t know who her father is and her mother is the only family she has ever know. They must stay isolated as much as possible, so no one discovers Ember’s Faeblood, her curse. When her mother is murdered she is forced once again to run, but this time all alone. In the territories she is in more danger of being discovered, but she must find food. The different territories favor strong bodies who are able to fulfill the annual tithe to the Kingdom’s nobility. Ember is caught stealing food by Gavyn; an elite fighter, head trainer, and right hand to the village’s leader. He has a reputation of being hard and defending his family with everything he can. Ember threatens all he tries to protect. Can these two put their passions aside and protect not only themselves but Gavyn’s found family? Will the Kingdom find Ember and kill her for threatening the delicate balance of power in the realm? This is SUCH a great book! I can see this one turning into a movie easy!! You have got to read it! I personally can’t wait to read the others in the set!!

My first read of this author and I can honestly say I cannot wait for the next in the series.
Although I found the start a little hard to follow I soon fell into the world of the faeblood and found it difficult to find a suitable place to stop reading for the night (it is that addictive).
MK tells us about Ember and her trials as she journeys on the run through the land where the faeblood live in the castle and rule the land and territories with an iron fist in the form of the Red Guard (their personal army). Through her wiles and tenacity Ember moves from village to village ending up in the Borderlands of Midpointe, where she is caught by the villagers. She falls into the life of the militia village with ease, still hiding until discovered.
There is more than Ember bringing trouble to this family unit and as we follow her time with them, the building of relationships, discovery of love and honour we discover the spy in the mists.
The land of the faeblood has been described in detail and the other territories have been introduced through meetings. I cannot wait to read the second in the series.

Ember is an orphan who has been isolated but wishes to find others who have FaeBlood. She has to leave when her mother is killed.

Gavyn is a warrior that will protect his town. What happens when Ember stumbles upon the town?

The cover caught my attention and I don’t really many stories involving Fae so I decided to give it a try. The slow burn romance between Gavyn and Ember was well done. And I loved the world building around the small village.

I can’t wait for the next book.

I enjoyed this book. The author created a dynamic world and a really interesting story. As I followed Ember on her journey I found myself rooting for her and hoping that she would get the future she deserved. The story had adventure and intrigue, it kept me entertained throughout the whole book. This author is someone I look forward to seeing more from and to reading the next book in the series.

This book was soo good I couldn’t put it down Reading Author MK Lorber for the first time. I was amazed to see that this was her first published book. It was really well written. Ember and Gavyn, although they were from different worlds( a real ying and yang) the pull of attraction was too strong for them to fight even though they tried to. The suspense of who the trader was almost had me flipping through the book :} I will definitely be reading the next book to see what the characters have in store for them.
