"Another great performance from Moira Todd!  I'm not sure whether Ms Alsever's story was the perfect fit for actress Moira Todd or if Ms. Todd's rendition elevated Ms Alsever's novel to new heights, but whichever way, Moira Todd has been the perfect portrayer of Jennifer Alsever's exciting saga. I couldn't put it down."

"This compelling novel is excellently plotted, flows well and beautifully written with vivid imagery, spot-on use of simile, and nearly perfect dialogue. The idea of a forest full of urban legends is original and will keep the reader engaged. The characters here are believable and well rendered. Ember has a strong voice that resonates from the very first page of the book. The book will appeal to readers of all ages, not just young adult readers."

"A MUST READ! One of the best books I have read in awhile. I don't want to give the details to spoil it but this is a MUST read asap."

"WOW! This book is absolutely nuts!! It has that mystery that makes you want to keep searching for the truth and once you find it, you wonder if you’re crazy after all."

I FLEW THROUGH IT "I've read some of the other YA series, such as Divergent, The Hunger Games, etc., and I think that Ember Burning is on equal footing with any of them. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series."

"THE CHARACTERS PULL YOU RIGHT IN, regardless of your age. I found myself constantly trying to figure it out, all the while enjoying the pages of literary candy. Bring on books two and three...quickly please. :)"

AMAZING BOOK! "This is the best book I've read all year! It takes you through a multitude of different feelings including loneliness, despair, mystery, excitement, sadness, and magic. Ember is the great main character that shows us not a perfect, barbie-doll life, but rather a relatable one. Once you read it you will be enchanced with the characters like me. I can't wait for the next one to come out!"


"AWESOME BOOK! Well written and engaging. I could not put it down. Excited for the second book!"

"Jennifer Alsever's Trinity Forest Series hit the shelves this month and is already drawing comparisons to The Hunger Games. Just this week, the first of Alsever's trilogy, Ember Burning, had more than 3,000 Amazon Kindle downloads."

WOW... JUST WOW Disturbing, mysterious, and darkly romantic, Trinity Forest and it's ties to the Anunnaki will keep you glued to the page. The characters are complex, sympathetic, and flawed without being unlikable."

CAPTIVATING FIRST NOVEL  "Wow! What an incredibly engaging and powerful first time novel. I wouldn't have necessarily thought I'd be drawn to a "YA" novel but at the suggestion of a friend I picked up "Ember Burning" and couldn't put it down. So, be forewarned, this book appeals to middle-aged women just as much as young adults :-). Alsever manages to keep the reader both rooted in the physical world while also exploring the other-worldly. She brings these characters vividly to life and imbues sympathetic qualities in all of them. This is the first part of a trilogy and I am already counting down the days to the sequel."

"WHAT AN AMAZING STORY! One can't help but fall in love with Ember from the very beginning and I cheered her on until the very end."


"NUMBER ONE IN MY BOOKS: This is a great thriller book that is a must read. Will leave you on the edge of your seat the whole time. I couldn't stop reading."


"EDGE OF MY SEAT: I loved this book more than the first. I couldn't wait to see what would happen to the characters."

"GREAT SEQUEL!!!! My daughter and I read Ember Burning together and we were super excited to get the second book. I literally could not put this down."

"I didn't see any of that coming!"

FIVE STARS: Couldn't put it down!"

"I LOVE ALSEVER'S STORYTELLING! It is a “must read in one sitting” kind of book, and I am looking forward to the third book!"

"REVETING SQUEL. After absolutely loving "Ember Burning," I was worried about the curse of the sequel, and I managed my expectations a bit. No need! The author not only maintained the mystery and intrigue of the first book, but built on the story in a way I wasn't quite expecting. Oshun Rising was an absolute page-turner that has me eagerly awaiting book 3!"

"Haunting and beautifully written. This author is so talented!"

"OSHUN RISING is NOT that sequel stepchild of so many series! Jennifer Alsever's mind is like a garden in full bloom. I was captivated by EMBER BURNING, but OSHUN RISING has taken my breath away with Ms. Alsever's powerful writing and brilliant storytelling." 

-Tome Tender Blog

"I absolutely loved this. I read Ember Burning back in the summer and I enjoyed it, but Oshun Rising takes a massive step forward in so many ways: writing, plotting, characters, the world Jennifer Alsever has created.... Fabulous. I want more!"

"FANTASTICALLY GRIPPING FOR A TEEN. OR A MOM. Unique. This story captured me. It is written with the rich texture that makes you see it happen! The author crafts the characters with grit and grace. Reading Oshun Rising now. Cant wait to see what happens next. Love."

"INCREDIBLE FINISH TO A STUNNING TRILOGY... A READERLY VORTEX! Alsever's writing is colorful and descriptive with fantastic details my imagination begged more of to read. Highly recommended! You won't be disappointed."

"I LOVE ALSEVER'S STORYTELLINGI had to fight off my teenage daughter to get to reading the book. All engulfing ending to the trilogy and the third book takes you completely "in medias res" and it is hard to put the book down, in fact I didn't."


When Ember Trouvé first ventures into Trinity Forest, she goes looking for escape. What she finds there is something much more dangerous than even the urban legends could have predicted. Once inside, the forest’s candy-coated wickedness draws her in like spider’s web, promising a new, exciting life…with just a few fatal strings attached. 

What Ember chooses next will challenge her very notion of reality. In a series of events that will turn her and her friends’ lives upside down, Ember travels through the looking glass into a world of fame, wealth, and deadly vengeance. She will have to fight like hell to reclaim a life she once wished away in order to save the boy she loves and the family she only now realizes she’s always had.  

Follow Ember’s journey in the haunting, acclaimed Trinity Forest trilogy (Ember Burning, Oshun Rising, and Venus Shining) and enter into a world a breath away from our own, filled with witchcraft, deception, and romance. Perfect for fans of Lauren Oliver’s Delirium trilogy and Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies series.
