Stories for all the badass babes who still believe in holding out for a hero

Headshot of AJ Blanch

MEET THE AUTHOR

AJ Blanch discovered writing back when she found she could procrastinate her math homework by distracting her mother with an original poem or anecdote. 

She now crafts stories of magic and romance—she still avoids doing math.

When not writing, you can find AJ spending time with her man and their four kids.

Found in Embers (Astrid Stone Book 1): Fun, fast paced read! This is the first book I’ve finished in years. I’ve been in quite a reading slump for many reasons…so, I just want to say thank you to this author for reigniting that passion.That may sound overly dramatic, but this pulled me in immediately, kept me interested in the plot and the characters, and moved fast.There were a few places where I felt like I was missing pieces, a few holes here and there, and because of that I was going to rate it 3.8. But I rounded it up to 4 because it was just so freaking fun to read!I can’t wait until the next book, where I’m sure those missing pieces will come together.Well done!

Found in Embers (Astrid Stone Book 1): Fun UF/portal fantasy I always think I don't like urban fantasy/portal-type stories, and then I read books like this and wonder why I think that. This might make me rethink it, actually! This was such a fun, quick read with likable and complex characters, a cool magic system, and some unexpected twists. Astrid was easy to care for, and I liked how her focus remained on her sister for the whole story (as opposed to some books that start out with someone trying to find a family member and then forgetting about them when a love interest comes along). Can't wait for book 2!

Found in Embers (Astrid Stone Book 1): Leaves you wanting more This is my first time reading a book of this nature. I’m usually a murder mystery girl but was looking to branch out and I’m so glad I did and chose this book. It really pulled me in. I didn’t feel like it was too rushed or too far drawn out. The love and bond between Astrid and her sister was beautifully written. I can’t wait for the the next in this trilogy and see what adventures Astrid encounters next.

Found in Embers (Astrid Stone Book 1): Entertaining The whole book felt rushed. I liked the story and want to know what's next. It could have been more descriptive in every way. It had a little bit of language, including 1 F-word.
