The Green Ember by S.D. Smith, A Book Review


The beautiful cover art by Zach Franzen of the bunnies on a quest made me open this book, and I'm glad I did. The last sentence of the Prologue, "My place beside you, my blood for yours! Till the Green Ember rises, or the end of the world!" opens an adventurous novel full of sword-bearing rabbits.

This beautifully written story has everything a lover of the Narnia Chronicles could desire. Heather and Pickett must flee their home and survive in an evil world. The siblings are thrust into situations that cause them to mature into humility, sacrifice and courage. The characters they meet along the way present challenges, obstacles, and conflicts.

This is a great middle reader story, but adults will love it as well. The book has over 200 Five Star reviews on Amazon.

About the author: S. D. Smith lives with his wife, Gina, and their four kids in Grandview, West Virginia. Sam is an award-losing author of short fiction, but losing the West Virginia Fiction Award in the final round didn't get him down. Sam has been fortunate enough to share speaking sessions alongside authors N. D. Wilson, Andrew Peterson, and Sally Lloyd-Jones. He writes regularly for Story Warren & The Rabbit Room, speaks at conferences and drive-through windows, and loves soccer. The Green Ember is his first novel.
