I give The Embers We Seek: Prequel | War of Giants (A Rebel Princess Serial Book 1) by Acacia K. Parker, 4 stars.
Wren, as a captain, will do anything to protect her soldiers, but also feels like she needs to protect the innocents too. She fights when she needs to, but she tries to avoid as much innocent bloodshed as possible. When her leader organizes an attack in which many will lose their lives needlessly, she decides to defy orders and try to stop as much as possible. Going against her orders may cost her life, but it would be worth it. Trouble is, will this work or will it be for nothing?
This was quite an interesting book. I enjoy Wren and think she is a great character. The story itself is different and like nothing I have read before. It pulled me in right away and I could not put it down until I finished. Not too long, it is a perfect summer afternoon read.
If you like fantasy books with a great story and interesting characters, this book is for you.
