The Green Ember (Book I)

S D Smith


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?

The Green Ember

I have long awaited being able to read this treasure, that helps to subtly lift our eyes upwards, and remind our children of the hope yet to come.

This story was quite the adventure. It is full of courage, real life struggles, sacrifice, hope, perseverance and redemption. So much to inspire and encourage. All with subtle Gospel themes woven throughout.

The themes are subtle enough that anyone could read it and thoroughly enjoy it, just like Narnia! I would recommend as a gift for any child.

Content warning - there is mention of parents being killed, or likely to have been killed. For the more sensitive child, this may be a trigger. For my eldest son, this is a particular trigger. He doesn’t like mention of parents or grandparents dying in books or films, so I have to be careful around this kind of thing. However it’s only mentioned a few times briefly, so you could reword during your read aloud if reading to a younger audience like I was (age 6).

The Green Ember is a fantastic book about rabbits fighting wolves and it's an epic tale of mystery and suspense. The characters are incredible. The start is a little scary for younger readers.
