Review: Embers (Anya Kalinczyk #1) by Laura Bickle

Share it Please
Not what I was expecting, but a very good story to read. This was my first time reading a story where the main character is a medium and I gotta say I enjoyed it immensely. I was immediately drawn into the story from the start of the very first line.

Anya is a fire arson investigator during the day and at night, she works for DAGR as a lantern. She works as a spiritual vacuum, drawing in lingering spirits that do not or cannot move on. She is the last one called in when there are no other options left. It 's also a job that she no longer wants to do.  Anya feels disconnected from those around her and keeps most everyone at bay, even the people she considers friends.

Things I liked
Anya's salamander Sparky. He reminded me of an actual dog. Loving and fiercely protective of Anya. Also thought Anya character was strong and independent. I liked how she was determined to solve the problems that came her way.

Things I didn't like were mainly how Anya kept her friends at bay. I understand her reluctance to be around ppl because of her gift. But if someone cares about you, I just think it wasn't right.

All and all, I still enjoyed the book and I thought Ms Bickels writing and storytelling skills are excellent. Yes, the story was slow on some parts, but this one gets 5 Black Orchids.

Lata Days....MUAH!
