Zoey Daniels has been tossed from foster home to foster home, where she grows up fast and tough. When she is placed in her “last-chance” home, she finds a reason to stay and turn her life around: her foster sister, Lexie, who is paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. Zoey will do anything to keep her safe.
After high school, Zoey is hired by a special government agency, the Department of Molecular Genetics (DMG), where she meets the other reason to remain: Daniel, her co-worker. The man she loves.
But there is something unique about Zoey. She can see fae. Because of this, the DMG hires her to work as a Collector: catching, researching, testing, and using the fae to save human lives. The work never registers on her sympathy radar. She was raised to think of fae as beasts that feed on humans and want to destroy them.
When devastation hits Seattle, Zoey's whole world is turned upside down. The electric storm connects her to a ruthless fae, a Wanderer named Ryker, whose dealings expose them to even more trouble and danger. They embark on a journey, running and hiding from both the government and fae, both of which threaten their lives and those they love.
City in Embers
I really enjoyed this book. The dialogue between the characters was great, and characters were easy to relate to with a lot of depth. The chemistry between Ryker and Zoey was pretty intense which makes the book exciting and a bit addictive. I downloaded the second two, and I'm sure I'll be anxiously waiting for the 4th book after I finish the 3rd.
This book hooked me from the first page. The story is wonderfully written and the characters are intricate. I never knew exactly what was going to happen and loved every second of reading this book!
I have lost out on sleep this week tearing through all 3 of the books in the series. Good character development. Great chemistry. Love Sprig!! This is the first series in a long time that has captured my attention. I can't wait for book 4 and am looking forward to reading more from Ms. Brown.
