Embers and Echoes – By Karsten Knight


Goodreads Synopsis: Ashline Wilde may have needed school to learn that she is actually a reincarnated goddess, but she’s ready to move beyond books. She leaves her California boarding school behind and makes for Miami, where she meets a new group of deities and desperately seeks her sister Rose, the goddess of war. But she’s also looking for love—because even though her romance with Cole had to be snuffed, Ash is a volcano goddess—and she doesn’t get burned.

This sequel to the edgy and action-packed Wildefire continues a fiery drama on an immortal scale.

After completely falling in love with the first book I was both excited and hesitant for this second installment. Excited because the first book was so good, and the author’s writing fantastic. Slightly hesitant because sometimes second books just aren’t as good.

I was pretty much devastated when this book was not only not as good as the first book, but pretty fricken terrible. Everything that I’d loved from the first book was missing in this one. Original plots and characters were just not original. Even the writing didn’t feel as good. Embers and Echoes falls into so many cliches. A character that was dead in the first book was found out to be not actually dead. Ash’s love life turned into a sort of love triangle. And the bad guys fell into the age old troupe of needing to be worshiped and that’s the entire reason they’re doing bad things.

I don’t have a lot else to say about this book. It was boring, predictable and nothing like the first. The only reason I finished reading it was because I am hopeful that the third, and last book in this trilogy is better. I gave this book 1 star on Goodreads.
