Her pale skin and weird diet make her a target at school. If only they knew the truth about her feeding habits…
Seventeen-year-old Alena Scott is tired of pretending to be something she’s not. As an outlawed vampire-witch hybrid, she’s forced to abide by the oppressive secrecy imposed by her Vampire Chancellor mother. But she’ll have to ignore the rules when she comes face-to-face with a handsome, full-grown version of her childhood imaginary friend.
Shocked that he recognizes her as his own pretend play pal, the two embark on a quest to solve the mystery of their fantasized companionship. And as they unravel their entwined destinies, Alena realizes she holds the key to a curse which could free them all—or condemn witchkind to eternal suffering.
Can Alena and her impossibly familiar partner reverse an ancient spell before they’re sent to a mortal grave?

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Tricia Copeland. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
I went into this audiobook with very high expectations. A YA book with vampires and witches has no where to go but down as those are some of my very favorite kinds of books to read (or listen to). Thankfully, Kingdom of Embers did not disappoint!
There is SO much going on in this book. From vampires, witches and hybrids to the drama that is high school, Kingdom of Embers is a fun, wild ride that will keep you entertained from start to finish. I am thrilled that this book is the start of a series as I think the characters have so much more to give! I can’t wait to see what happens to them next.
The narrator is wonderful, working between genders and accents seamlessly. Listening to this book was a real treat and I will definitely be picking up the other audiobooks as they come available.
