Eleven-year-old Wesley, along with his two little sisters Emma and Eden, had known nothing but heartache under the neglectful watch of a heroin addicted mother. Cold, hungry, and eventually abandoned, they are temporarily sent to foster care and then to their grandmother’s. Upon meeting their new eccentric grandmother, they find themselves transported to another realm of strange creatures after touching a forbidden glowing ember rock in Grandmother’s home. When transported to the new realm called Ornithos, they encounter fun, quirky creatures that they have never seen before. Plants with faces on them, trees that transport pedestrians, butterflies that glow neon all thrive in Ornithos. There are half-bird, half-human creatures which are referred to as Orns who are full of love and positive energy. The three find themselves in true paradise where all inhabitants work together to take care and nurture each other. In the center of this utopia is a large egg that glows like burning embers. The egg provides energy to the city, heals the sick, and creates these half-human, half-animal creatures. When the egg is broken, it’s up to Wesley and his sisters to save Ornithos and its inhabitants.
The Ember Egg
I absolutely LOVED the book! I finished it in a day and a half because I found it hard to put down. It was very suspenseful, and has a lot of good life lessons hidden in the storyline. Five Stars from this reader!
