Embers is the first book I’ve read by Laura Bickle. (She writes other urban fantasy as Alayna Williams.) Her books revolve around Anya Kalinczyk, an arson investigator in Detroit who’s also a Lantern, a rare type of supernatural being who can consume ghosts and demons, and who has an elemental salamander as her companion.

In Embers, Anya is tracking a serial arsonist who’s trying to awaken an ancient entity. Plus she’s trying to figure out what her Lantern powers mean, and deal with her romantic life (or lack thereof).

This book is really well written and I got through it very quickly. Anya’s a nice protagonist and I love Sparky (the salamander). There’s also some great push-and-pull between Anya and her antagonist. I was very excited to hear that the sequel is already out. Can’t wait to read Sparks!
