    Another Superb Thriller

    I found Echo and Ember to be an amazing read. Scudiere has quickly become one of my favorite authors and her latest installment in the NightShade Forensic Files certainly delivered the goods. There were plenty of twists, and even though I figured out some of them before the reveal that did not detract from the story one bit. The new characters in the series were quite intriguing, though one of their abilities seemed eerily similar to Eleri’s. I guess this made the character expendable, seeing as she dies towards the end of the story. I cannot quite say I like or trust the ability of the other new agent. Just like torture, how do you prove a confession is true or if it is just what the agent wants to hear. I suppose it can be useful in deescalating a situation in order to protect lives. It’s just that they specifically mention interrogation as a use for the power. I suppose that is just my personal opinion. I enjoyed how Scudiere answered the one major question I had from her last story. It felt wrong that the character was heading off into the sunset so to speak, while having such dangerous information at their highly inquisitive fingertips. To show that the character stayed true to form and continued researching the information and then to bring them into their own little investigative unit seemed right to me. I only had one minor complaint with this story. Eleri at one point mentions that the last words one of the victims heard was “I’m sorry”. This was done to show that the victim was not the main target. However, if the killers were sociopaths I do not think they would be able to show sympathy. I find it highly unlikely that they would even express remorse. I would highly recommend Echo and Ember to all fans of Scudiere as well as all fans of investigative thrillers. They will definitely enjoy the story.

    Didn't let me down!

    A.J. Scudiere is one of my favorite authors. Echo and Ember, her latest Nightshade Forensic Files book, didn't let me down. Eleri's and Donovan's characters are fleshed out and we learn more about Eleri's family. Elements from the last book are brought forward with some loose ends tied up. This is a thinking person's book. The twists and turns keep you thinking about the book even when you are not reading. I didn't see the last twist, but I should have. Can't wait to read the next book where Emmaline is found. Outstanding series, easy to recommend. Also, I have to mention "Vengeance" from the "Vendetta Trifecta" is one of my all time favorite books.

    As usual: a Scudiere Hit!Filix

    Echo and Ember I must have enjoyed AJScudiere’s most recent book. The evidence is I got a ticket for reading it at a traffic light, My granddaughter is still mad at me for reading it during her wedding. My wife is upset that I missed saying “I love you” before I went to sleep for the first time in 58 years. This is AJ’s typically well-written and well-researched book and with a couple of new Night-Shade characters with special abilities of their own, one who’s special ability I fear influenced this review - Even after I erased the book from my iPhone. The plot is typical AJ if you can call anything about AJ typical - well thought out, tense, and exciting, My rating on the spexcial Night-Shade scale is 4 wolves and a pup (same as 4 ½ stars on Amazon). For those who haven't read the others in the Night-Shade series I recommend you read them first even though each stands alone. I would say more got to take something for this buzzing in my
