Hola everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted anything in a while. But hey, I got one for you now. Let’s get started.

This series is a lot of fun. It’s about a brother and a sister who are trying to find their family. They end up getting involved with a war between The Lords of Prey and the Mended Wood. The siblings go to a secret stronghold and learn about a deep secret their father had kept from them. And, they find the hidden heir to the throne.

So much happens in the book, and I love it. The series has mystery and adventure, but it also a war, so you know, violence. But besides the war, I believe it is a very clean book. The author wrote it for his children. It can definitely be a “Read with the Family” series. There is one issue though. I found these books very confusing sometimes. The author has dozens of main characters in this series and I had a hard time remembering all of them. The Green Ember has I don’t know how many Lords and at least three different Captains whose names start with a P. So maybe reading it with someone would be a good idea. The names can be confusing but honestly that’s the only fault I find in the series. (I’m serious, the only fault.)

I love the Green Ember series and I can’t wait for book 4. (Yeah…. I read the series already and I am having a difficult time waiting for the next adventure.) These books are amazing and I would definitely recommend them to kids both younger and older. Hope you liked my review.      -The Tiger Reader

P.S. Did I forget to mention that the characters are rabbits?


  • Great adventure
  • Interesting plot line
  • Keeps you wanting more (In my opinion)


  • War (But it’s clean)
  • Confusing writing style when it comes to names

Heather and Picket are extraordinary rabbits with ordinary lives until calamitous events overtake them, spilling them into a cauldron of misadventures. They discover that their own story is bound up in the tumult threatening to overwhelm the wider world.

Kings fall and kingdoms totter. Tyrants ascend and terrors threaten. Betrayal beckons, and loyalty is a broken road with peril around every bend.

Where will Heather and Picket land? How will they make their stand?
