The Lantern's Ember is a fun twist on the Legend of Sleepy Hollow featuring Jack, an immortal guardian of the barrier between our world and the Otherworld, and Ember, a powerful witch whom Jack watches over and protects from entities of the Otherworld. When Ember manages to slip past Jack into the Otherworld, it's a race against time to find her and protect her from the people who want to use her and her magic for their own nefarious purposes. The book is full of references to classic horror stories and legends while giving them a modern, steampunk-y twist. It's great book to read during the Halloween season!
When seventeen-year-old Ember, a young witch living in the quiet New England town of Hallowell, crosses into the Otherworld, Jack the gatekeeper sets out to find her before the supernatural and mortal worlds descend into chaos.
