Ember - Bettie Sharpe This is more like a 4.5. It's a novella available for free on the author's website, and everyone should go and grab it. I opened it by accident last night, planning to read something else, and couldn't put it down for the life of me.Ms. Sharpe spins the Cinderella tale here, and it's delicious. She gives each player surprising and clever depth and creates something dark and satisfying out of a worn out and fluffy fairy tale.
