By day Anya Kalinczyk works as an arson investigator for the Detroit Fire Department but by night she and her team of experts track and eliminate ghosts. Anya is very unique. She is a medium, but not just any type of medium, but what is known as a Lantern.

Sparky is Anya's familiar. He is a salamander. Sparky is also a good guard pet. Anya and her team arrive at an old lady's home. She reported feeling and experiencing weird sensations down in the basement. Anya heads down stairs and meets her match with a very mad possessed coke machine. Anya quickly gets rid of the spirit, but before she does, the spirit tells Anya that Sirrush is coming. All hell will break loose on Devil's Night, unless Anya and her team can stop whoever is trying to resurrect Sirrush.

Embers is the debut novel from author Laura Bickle. Right from the beginning I knew that this book was going to be a winner. I was right. My thoughts about this book never wavered. If anything, my excitement grew. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the next book, Sparks. Sparky is the best familiar any psychic could ever own. The way Sparky would act made me laugh. Watch out Ghost Busters as there is a new sheriff in town, and her name is Anya. She is sharp, sassy, and can kick some serious spirit soul. Laura Bickle is an author to keep an eye on as she is going far. Embers proves it.
