Don't you just love a good archaelogical mystery? If so, you'll enjoy The Last Ember. Well researched, great characters, and edge of your seat action.

This one was definitely a page turner and I loved the characters.

Are they making The Last Ember into a movie?

This book had a lot of good information, but it wasn't oten well integrated into the plot. Dialog was stiff and read more like a textbook than a novel. The book came across as an excuse to talk about archaeology instead of the the historical references enhancing the book.
There were some good idias, but it wasn't the kind of quality I have come to expect from Reader's Choice.
