Ember Rising

The Green Ember: Book 3
By: S. D. Smith

Book Reivew

Ember Rising is book three in a four part children's novel adventure series. Yes, it is a children's novel, but adults will find just as much delight in this series as children. I have been reading books to my two oldest children for the last two years, and this series rivals The Chronicles of Narnia as my favorite to read to my kids. Not that you can really compare anything to the C. S. Lewis' masterpiece; however, the delight I experienced in mediating the highs and lows, joys and fears, tears and laughter of these books to my children along with the thorough satisfaction I get from experiencing their reactions reasons why it is a rival (not to mention the emotions that I experience from the storyline as well).

This third book, is in no way a let down. It builds on the previous two marvelously. I am curious how Smith will wrap up the series with the fourth book because each of the first three do such a good job building on each other. The ending of this book (no spoiler here) was so good that I had to spend two hours of reading out-loud to my kids (normally around 20-30 minutes of reading per night) to get through the ending all in one shot.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.
