Kids of all ages will enjoy this book. In the time between finishing Ember Falls and writing this brief review — a couple weeks — my 11 year old daughter read all three of S.D. Smith‘s books about rabbits with swords. The family was talking about the books over lunch the day she finished Ember Falls. My son commented that his sister read it super fast. She replied with a strong explanation: “It’s a good book!” Yes, it is. Story Warren published another fine children’s book. It’s an excellent follow-up to The Green Ember. Heather and Picket’s story not only continues, but escalates and expands. Relationships are enriched, new dangers and dark times are faced, all the while the characters grow in a delightful way. I was especially pleased with Picket’s development. So was my daughter, however, Heather is her favorite character. Your kids will love the adventure. You will, too. I did.
