If you’re looking for something else to read, after you’ve finished catching up on all of Ember’s Heart, then go check out the sci-fi serial Sol, over at Robotissmiling.com. Sol is a fun but serious space novel that starts after Earth gets plowed under by aliens. It centers around a husband and wife separated by thousands of light years through their respective “rescues”, giving both their perspectives as they adapt to their situations and try to overcome them. So far the author has two majorly different warring alien races, some mind-bendingly cool tech (sometimes with extra bending), plenty of immersive multi-sense description, and a whole bunch of excellent character writing (always the most important part of any novel). It’s up to nine chapters so far, with more to come, so be sure to leave plenty of encouragement and comments, or even constructive criticism, which he responds quite well to, and spur him on to more writing. (I say all this as a selfish personal request, because I want to see how it ends, and the more people who encourage him, the more likely it is I’ll get to read it all. :-D).
