Holden told Olivia it was only a matter of time before Hell came for them. After all, one doesn’t just walk away from the life he lived unscathed, but the longer Hell waited, the more Olivia let down her guard. She believed maybe happily ever after was possible—he knew it wasn’t. But when Baker shows up beaten and bloody on their doorstep with a message, all hope evaporates. The jinn make Holden an offer he can’t refuse: convince Olivia to free them all and the jinn will fight Hell alongside them. However, if their past has proved anything, it’s that the jinn cannot be trusted. When Olivia starts hearing a voice that no one can identify and Baker isn’t acting like himself, he is forced to make a decision. With Heaven staying hands off, Holden considers accepting the jinn’s offer behind Olivia’s back. One thing is clear, with their lives and the lives all those they hold dear at stake, something has to be done. If it were as easy as Holden going back to the jinn, he would do it in a heartbeat, but Hell wants more than his soul this time—they want Olivia’s too.
Liz Schulte was one of the first Indie authors I ever read and she’s still one of my favorites. With each story she ceases to amaze me with her solid worlds and characters. It seems fitting that she’d be featured in the first review on this blog. If you’re unfamiliar with her work, especially if you’re interested in Ember, be sure to read her Guardian trilogy.
Jinn, demons, Guardians, and angels … oh and let’s not forget Sehkmet and shifters too.
Ember and the Jinn Trilogy as a whole are reads I’d been long awaiting ever since the end of the Guardian Trilogy. They both feature the same characters (Olivia, Holden, Femi, and Baker) along with some not so new faces. Hell strikes back, secrets run in abundance, and Olivia hears voices. It’s a tantalizing intro into the new trilogy that left me craving more.
I enjoyed revisiting with Olivia and Holden. They’ve grown a lot since Guardian Trilogy, but they’re still one of my favorite PNR couples. Neither is perfect, yet they’re perfect for each other. At the same time, reading Baker was interesting. I enjoyed his witty sayings, but I’m still not certain I really got to know him on the same level as Olivia and Holden. He’s the type that intrigues me, but is it because i don’t know so much? Regardless, another beautiful story will rest peacefully on my iPhone, and I am eagerly awaiting the next book.
About Author Liz Schulte
Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn’t always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more. When Liz isn’t writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she would be perfectly happy never having to shovel her driveway again. She has a love for all things spooky, supernatural, and snarky. Her favorite authors range from Edgar Allen Poe to Joseph Heller to Jane Austen to Jim Butcher and everything in between. Follow Liz Schulte: Website | Facebook | Twitter | GoodReads
