It’s been a week since all hell broke loose…

Rumors of King Taron’s weakened powers have left the air court vulnerable. Kalin is desperate to awaken her akasha powers, except she doesn’t know how. Tension within the court is at an all-time high. Pressure is mounting for her to ascend to the throne, but a halfling has never ruled over any court. To solidify her position, the council has advised her to marry Sebastian—a high ranking air elemental she’s never met and her betrothed.

Will Kalin sacrifice her relationship with Rowan to strengthen her court?

Rowan and Marcus return to a fire court in turmoil. Liana’s death has fueled the fire elementals’ distrust against the air and woodland courts. The unbalanced elements have set off natural disasters all over the mortal world. Rowan takes the throne to restore balance, promising to unite the fire court. But not all elementals are happy with his leadership. Many are secretly loyal to Valac, which means Rowan needs to find allies for his cause.

Can Rowan unify the court of fire before the elements destroy the world?

I love the way Stacey O'Neale writes. She has a way of making you hold on and not stop reading. She writes in both Kalin and Rowan’s POV. With each chapter ending, it is like a mini cliffhanger. She leaves you at a crucial moment and switches POV’s. Then you go to what the other one is up to, which of course you need to read because in the chapter before she left you hanging. It made me go crazy but in a good way, because once you start you just can’t stop.

The story is rich in scenery, magic and mischief. Then there is Sebastian. I didn’t like him. I agreed with Rowan who also didn’t like him and didn’t know him either. It created a few tiffs between Rowan and Kalin.

There is so much action and you also don’t know who to trust or believe. Nothing is as it should be. There is so much change and so much is on both Kalin and Rowan in this book that it sometimes left me in a panic. Seriously! I didn’t know how either held on.

As far as secondary characters go, I love Marcus and Ariel (don’t hate me if I remembered her name wrong). They are loyal to their friends and I would want them to be my friends too. Plus when Marcus and Rowan are together they crack me up with all their testosterone!

Some of the things that happened were predictable but only to me and not to the characters involved. Although, I wasn’t sure why some of them didn’t figure it out earlier.

This time it ends with an ending that doesn’t have me pulling out my hair waiting for the next book but I definitely will be waiting for it because the next book should be a major battle!

Seriously, I love this series! I would love to see it on the big screen!

And, thank you to Stacey O'Neale for providing me a copy in exchange for an honest review!!!!
