Ember is the story of Max Valentine, a teenager with secret abilities and many inner demons. His life revolves around music and his love for it. When his father dies he seeks answers with his last living relative, his fathers brother Frank. Frank lives on the island of Maui and eagerly takes Max in as his own. Max soon learns that healing his past will be more difficult than he could have ever believed. Two major complications will tempt and torment him as he tries to make sense of his abilities.
The first temptation comes in the form of a mysterious island girl. Asia Lyn Michaels is rich, spoiled, angry and beautiful. Her path crosses with Max on the beach one afternoon, forever changing both of their lives. Max saves her life and she discovers his secret. From that moment on they are connected, no matter how much they fight it.
The second temptation will test Max’s very soul. Samantha Ann Summers is sweet, artistic, smart and confident. She will help Max find his smile again and maybe even heal his past mistakes. She is possibly his soul mate and Max will fight that with every fiber of his being.
Max’s temper and indecision with the girls will send in motion events that will cost him dearly. He will test the limits of his powers and the new relationship with his protective uncle. He will gain a powerful love and lose another.
Review- What an interesting story! You get the gist of it from the blurb so I won't go much more into it. Madison Daniel has created an amazing love story while also bringing in the force of the elements which I happen to think is a little bit of genius. We are first introduced to "Max" and I was immediately drawn in mysteriousness. Who doesn't love a mysterious guy right? It doesn't take long until his hidden talents are shown. Or should I say powers. Throw in a love triangle which is created not too long after that and BAM Daniel has created the perfect recipe for a book front start to finish. I never got bored. It was funny, sad, made me angry. It was an emotional ride, but a good one. It's an awesome read for those who have a great imagination. A short sweet review but I highly recommend it!
