Sixteen-year-old Lady Ember Morrow fulfills a family obligation by joining her friend Alistair in the Conatus Guard and begins training to help with the order’s true mission, to seek out and stop evildoers and their unnatural creations.
While waiting for the Nightshade series books to become available, I thought I would start with the prequel books. If you like supernatural/paranormal mixed with a bit of historical flavoring, you will enjoy this book. It reminds me of the House of Night series by Cast, the young recruit finds herself enmeshed in something she never expected. Ember has to decide whether to choose love or the darkness.
