Publisher's Summary

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.
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 coworker. 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.

Great story... Some scenes not for kids

Sometimes I wish that there was a content rating system for books, like we have for movies. This book is full of action and great characters but includes detailed intimacy. Just thought I would pass that on...

Ok, stick with this series.... It gets incredible.

What made the experience of listening to City in Embers the most enjoyable?

The story was good, and the narration was interesting. I got annoyed with Zoe at times, and SPRIG!!! always interrupting hot and steamy moments. That's why I gave this book four stars overall instead of five. I am usually not patient with authors that dangle romance the way Stacy does in this book, but I stuck with it and was rewarded in the second book in this series. This series is a realistic portrayal of a budding romance that takes time and doesn't happen overnight. You will love this book if you like an action and paranormal romance story to stretch out with the same characters over a series of books, and you don't mind waiting for the finger licking romance scenes to come.

What was one of the most memorable moments of City in Embers?

When Zoey jumps.

Have you listened to any of Amy Landon’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes! this one definitely doesn't disappoint!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Rhyker comes for her when she's in the ring.

Any additional comments?

Stick with the series, it gets better
