What Reviewers Are Saying…


on January 10, 2016 (★★★★★ Amazon Review)

After the Fire is yet another great book written by author, T. K. Chapin. This is the fourth and final book in the Embers and Ashes series. These books were set in Spokane, WA with the firefighters of fire station #9 as the main characters of each book…Book one- Cole, Book two- Kane, Book three- Rick and now Book four is about Micah. Throughout the series each book is written in first person from each of the main characters point-of-view…love how each character tells us his story.

I was excited to finally get to read about this station #9 character, Micah, because we’ve read of his influence in the lives of the other characters along the way in the other books and finally get to read about him! This is fiction, but I especially like how “human” Chapin made Micah. He has some intense things going on in his life (of which, I will NOT give spoilers as I don’t want to ruin Your experience of this exceptional read) and in the midst of the experiences he has real responses to the happenings. Micah is the kind of character that every Christian woman would want for her husband, especially after 20 years of marriage. He’s godly, faithful, loving, the encourager and a good example to others. I found this book to be encouraging to me in my faith, and yet found it to be an emotional read…there were even tears though some of the scenes. There are also quite a few parts that kept me on the edge of my seat as I read…wondering how this author was going to take the story. Chapin did a great job in surprising me with the directions taken within the pages of After the Fire.

Chapin doesn’t preach in his Christian fiction books, but he does gives verses and encourages a closer walk with the Lord throughout each of his books. You can almost always count on Chapin to give you a few great quotes in each of his books. You won’t be disappointed with this great quote from After the Fire, “…happiness depends on your circumstances; joy depends on God and my relationship with Him.” There’s an even better quote, but I’ll let you find it as it’s the essence of the whole series culminated into one quote. You’ll love it!

After the Fire by T. K. Chapin end this series with a breathing taking read. Micha and his wife’s personal loss was difficult but it is handled with sensitivity. As Micah turns to God for strength the grief and questioning is not skimmed over. This is one of this writer’s true strengths; he portrays the Christian walk with authenticity. There is no fairy God-father to make life easy and perfect.

Neither does T.K. Chapin shy away from showing the easy slide into corruption and sin. Often non-inspirational books show this side of the church but usually it is in a critical way against Christianity. There is balance in this story.

After the Fire is strong with more than one unexpected twist. Still each turn both good and bad fit smoothly in the flowing fast pace novel. Then the characters have depth and an emotional intensity that pull you right into their struggles, sorrows and joys. It’s an intensely moving, poignant, unforgettable read.

I received a free advance copy of this fourth and final book from the “Embers and Ashes” series in exchange for my review of the story.

Once again we join the brave men at Fire Station #9 as they journey through life together. This time it is Micah Freeman’s story, a man who has been a mentor to so many others at Fire Station #9.

I found this book harder to read than the others simply because of the heart wrenching tragedy that Micah and his wife go through.

One message that rings true through the story is that even when bad things happen, God can use those things for his purposes. A real illustration of Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (NIV)

Thank you, T. K. Chapin, for inviting me to read these books from the “Embers and Ashes” series.

What an awesome story! After the Fire is the 4th and final book in the Embers and Ashes series. After The Ashes Is Book 4 of the Embers and Ashes series by T.K. Chapin. This contemporary Christian Romance book inspires and tugs on your heart strings. The hero and his wife go through a tragedy no parent should have to go through. The story has a very meaningful message of trusting God in the midst of the fire or trial. This message is so true and uplifting. It reminds me of the story of Job. God will bring you out on the other side stronger and blessed. Life can be cruel. As humans we sometimes fail, but God is there through it all to love us back to Him if we are willing to let Him. T.K. Chapin has become one of my favorite authors, and this book a favorite. I was given a copy for an honest review. I highly recommend this book and this author.

After the Fire is the 4th and final book in the Embers and Ashes series. I have enjoyed each book in the series, but I do believe this one is my favorite. This story follows firefighter Micah and his wife and the events that lead to the testing of their faith through a tragic situation no parent ever wants to have to go through. The story carries the reader on an emotional roller coaster, and it is a beautiful and powerful story of God’s love and faithfulness in taking care of His children even through the worst of circumstances. The author’s personal belief and faith in God certainly comes through his writing. I hate to see this series come to an end and I will miss reading about the fireman in Firehouse #9.

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness. What an amazing story. I absolutely loved it. Heartbreaking but healing. I found this story to be a good end to the series. Very well written and I had to read it straight through. The lessons that can be learned from this story are huge and many. Lots of food for thought and possible application to ones life. I love to read fiction stories that show how great God is and how very much He loves us. This one does both. I highly recommend this to all.
