From USA Today best-selling author L.B. Gilbert, a paranormal romance to sink your teeth into!
Invested with the powers of Mother Nature, four women have been charged with the almost impossible task of maintaining order in the supernatural world and - when the crimes are extreme - the human world as well.
Diana, a fire Elemental, is almost burned out. Alone in the world (save for her Elemental sisters), she takes satisfaction in punishing those who've strayed so far into the black they've disrupted the balance. But her contentment is increasingly short-lived as she struggles with the limitations of her ability. An Elemental can track murderers to the ends of the earth, but not before it's too late for their victims.
So when a child from a previous case goes missing, Diana is determined to find her. The only problem is, she may have to take on an entire coven of vampires to do it.

I loved this book. The narrator did a great job of delivering the snarky dialogue as well as doing multiple character voices. The book revolves around Diana a Fire Elemental as well as Alec a vampire. While they travel around trying to find a coven of black witches they bond. I enjoyed their relationship because they both were witty and they did not fight incessantly. I am not someone who gets choked up about a book, but the end of this book caught me off guard. If you are a crier I would suggest having Kleenex around. The book ends without a major cliff hanger, but has made me curious about the world and I want to know more. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of paranormal romance.
This was a very good story. I loved learning a little bit about each elemental and this story was about Diana who is Fire. She is very strong and independent but Alec comes into the picture to help her and slowly breaks down her barrier. I can't wait to get the next book. Also, the narrator did a good job with the voices for each of the characters. I was gifted the audible version of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Magic, action, snark
Similar to the Mercy Thompson books by Patricia Briggs. Both are urban fantasy with magic, weres, and vampires. Both also have a badass female lead with a bit of a snarky attitude.
My favorite scene was when Diana introduces herself to the vampire coven, you get get a good picture of Diana in action and a look at how awkward (which is really quite endearing) Alec can be.
The conversations between Diana and Katie are very moving, poor little girl has had a very rough time in her short life.
Great book, can't recommend enough!
Once I started listening, I was hooked.
I enjoyed the entire book, but I loved the ending.
Yes, once I started I could not stop
This is an amazing story, that must be experienced.

Series: The Elementals
Disclaimer: I received the book for an honest review
Diana has been a Fire elemental for about a decade when she meets Alec on a case. Children are missing and it looks like black magic is involved. Trusting is not easy for Diana, but she quickly realizes that Alec are just at eager to find the kidnapper as she is, so she accepts his help. Together they hunt, and learn to trust.
This is the perfect book for audio. It has so many details that often get lost when you rush through reading it. With the audio you get to slow down for a bit and this book are perfect as a slow read. Tanya Eby has done an amazing job bringing the story to life. She was able to change her voice in small ways so the different characters stayed recognizable. It can be difficult narrating dialogue between male and female characters in a natural way, but Tanya Eby did a great job portraying them both.
First, the book is a standalone and can be read as such, but are also part of a series. This is probably one of the best paranormal stories I have read since Kim Harrison's Hallow series. It has an awesome kick ass heroin and a sweet determined hero. In some ways the hero reminded me of a character from a reversed fan girl anime. In a totally charming way he comes of as a huge fan of the Heroin. He even admit it in the book. It was really fun reading a book where the normal roles of conduct was reversed. Here the hero is the support and the heroin is the one who saves everyone. I totally adore this. All in all I loved everything about the book and can't wait to read the next book in the series.
So I will start by saying at first I wasn't sure how I liked the voice of this audio book, but I am glad to say as it went on I did not mind it. It ended up working for this story.
The book is about the fire elemental who is trying to solve a case involving a missing childThere is always something going on and the book keeps you wanting to finish it. I started and finished it today and I can not say I'm disappointed at all, so I am really glad.
L.B. Gilbert did a great job and I am looking forward to what comes next, maybe air? :)
If you are looking for a book with a strong, kick butt, snarky female lead and a vampire this is for you!
