3 stars. 'With a heroine whose emotions and motivations aren't always consistent or clear, some overstuffed prose and a plot that's slow to get rolling, Emberwilde isn't up to Ladd's usual level of excellence. Nevertheless, a base hit by Ladd is equivalent to a home run by others, and readers will find plenty to enjoy, including a good-hearted hero, well-drawn secondary characters and a gripping finale.' * RT Book Reviews *
