Two siblings, one crime. One long-buried secret.

17-year-old Ellen never wanted a holiday. What is there to do in Svartjokk, a mining town in the northernmost corner of Sweden, with no one but her brother Simon - a boy with Asperger's and obsessed with detective stories - for company?

Nothing, until they stumble upon a horrifying crime scene that brings them into a generations-long conflict between the townspeople and the native Sami. When the police dismiss Simon's findings, he decides to track down the perpetrator himself. Ellen reluctantly helps, drawn in by a link between the crime and the siblings' own past. What started off as a tedious holiday soon escalates into a dangerous journey through hatred, lies and self-discovery that makes Ellen question not only the relationship to her parents, but also her own identity.

Embers is a chilling and haunting who-dunnit with a Scandi-Noir twist, set against the backdrop of the deep, Swedish forests and the mysticism of Sami folklore.

“A great YA mystery”

(Thank you Netgalley and Unbound for a eARC in exchange for a honest review)

One of the best parts of this book, for me, was how it started straight into the action. In lots of mysteries I've read, it takes a... More
