I’ve been a fan of Lindsay J Pryor for some time, but I’ll admit I did have a little nervous anxiety going on in the pit of my stomach as I opened this book. I love her Blackthorn series, and I’m highly anticipating the finale, Blood Broken. But to sit down with something completely new… well, would it meet my expectations?
So for those reading this review, I’m going to put you out of your misery really quickly… it did. It most definitely did.
As with all of Lindsay’s novels, you are transported to the world she has created. She takes you into the heart of the action. You can smell the desperation of what it’s like to live in Lowtown, you can feel the terror, the hopelessness of being one of the unlucky folks who happened to be born into the wrong family, the wrong area.
But you can also be uplifted by the spirit of the people who live there, and none more so than our heroine, Ember, who, on the cusp of getting out of Lowtown to the more affluent Midtown is pulled into what I can only describe as a nightmare not of her making. But instead of crumbling, our girl leads from the front, inspires, thrills, digs her heels in, and stands up to those who seek to oppress.
At the beginning, I read slowly, keen to make sure I followed the story, for Lindsay J Pryor’s writing is not only absorbing, but it’s also intelligent. You have to pay attention. And gradually, I was pulled into Ember and Nate’s world, not like a voyeur, but as an active participant. I could have been Ember. I felt everything she did, I fought right alongside her, I urged her to triumph. From about the fifty percent mark, I couldn’t flick the pages fast enough.
I tried to work out how Ember was going to make it all okay when all seemed lost, but once again, as the author has done many times before, Lindsay J Pryor surprised, shocked, and astounded me with her storytelling, her guts, her ability to make the tough calls. Her ability to pull out something amazing... and when the covers are peeled back to reveal the outcome, she definitely provides that 'What the heck' moment!
Make no mistake: Lowtown is dark and gritty, and gives us more than a glimpse into the depths of human depravity. But it’s also uplifting, inspiring, and shows the strength of humanity, of how there are still those with determination to do the right thing, no matter what it costs them.
Lindsay J Pryor – I salute you. Please hurry up with the next in the series. I can’t wait.

Haven is just as dark,gritty,and depraved as her previous series but yet surprisingly different. Although Haven is a spinoff series it is a standalone book, which I think is awesome because you know what becomes of Nate and Ember. No cliff hanger, no waiting for what seems like forever till the next book is out......instant satisfaction. Although I love a good series, it's nice to read a standalone on occasion.
Ms. Pryor is an excellent story teller and her character and world building are superb! Definitely refreshing in a genre that sometimes is rather predictable.
Enter Nate and Ember: the connection between these two is both electric and magical. Both tortured souls, one looking for absolution, the other a better way of life.
I laughed, cried, yelled and rooted for them......I was totally hooked!
Thank you Lindsay for another fantastic read!
