Publisher's Summary

This is a full-length novel set between Windburn and Rootbound. However, to avoid spoilers, the author highly recommends you listen to it after hearing Rootbound.

From the USA Today best-selling series comes a glimpse into the life and mind of a character surrounded in mystery....

My name is Ash, and I am an elemental. As an ender, it is my place to protect the royal family at all costs. Despite being the best ender our world has ever beheld, I have failed time and again as the personal sacrifices continue to mount.

Lark has been banished to the desert by her father, who is blind to the manipulation he has again fallen prey to. To bring about justice, I must seek out and destroy the one who intentionally wields her powers to bring pain to my people.

Cassava’s death will finally free us from the dark cloud her reign of terror has surrounded us in. This is what I believe to be true, and I will seek her out with only one intended outcome. The reality, however, is much more complicated than my beliefs.

When lies turn to truths, and enemies to allies, can I still find my way back to who I once was? Uncertainty makes me hesitant, but I can not give up. For justice. For Lark. No matter the sacrifice.

Ash!!

I have liked Ash from the first moment he was introduced in the Elemental series. Like many in love he reacted when he should have thought things out a little more. His lack of foresight leads him on an unintended adventure filled with lies, half truths, and royal machinations. The story is fabulous. The new character Norm was a a great humorous addition. The narrator did a nice job, but I wish she would have stuck with Ms. Fortgang...Ash just doesn’t sound like Ash in the previous stories.

Great story of Ash!!!

I love this book of Ash. I liked finding out what he was doing while Lark was banished. I hope to see more of Norm. He is such a great sidekick. I cant wait to all see how all the strings come together. I feel so bad for Ash, he has been through so much. I glad that Ash has not forgotten Lark and can't wait to see how everything ends! I absolutely love how Michael Axtell narrated this book. His is the perfect voice for Ash!

The adventures of Ash

What a great addition to this series. Seeing things from Ash's POV is refreshing. We see how he reacts to Lark being banished, seeing his love leave him and Peta behind. Ash goes through his own trials and tribulations and encounters a new sidekick Norm. I see great things for Norm in the future, what a fun character he is. We also get more insight into Talan and Raven. Which is the good guy? Which is the bad guy? This book is a fill in between Windburn and Rootbound and if you've read those you know how this book ends already, but the journey there is a roller coaster of emotions and adventures.

Shannon Mayer never disappoints!

Another great book by Shanon. I love this series. I only wish the next book was on audible so I could see what happens next faster. I will have to wait until I get off work. Read this series!! You will not be disappointed!!!

Longing

I’m only this far in the series but I’m dreading the end I’ve enjoyed this series so much so very much
My favorite part is the relationship between lark and peta it’s sweet and heartwarming but it als fills me with a deep sadness cause I would do anything for a connection like they have. I know I’ll be re reading this series many times just to be able to feel their bond over and over.

Unnecessary

Meh this book was unnecessary. Boring, dumb supernatural, and just too spoiled by Lauren Fortgang.

Narrator has great voice exactly as imagined Ash.

What did you like most about Ash?

His voice and his morals. The voice is exactly as I imagined the character Ash to sound in the previous books, so was really pleased with the audiobook.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ash obviously haha.

Have you listened to any of Michael Axtell’s other performances? How does this one compare?

:No. But will do now.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes had an emotional reaction, Not giving any spoilers so will not name names but I felt pity for one of the characters, sadness, anger, hope etc at appropriate points.

Any additional comments?

A recommended listen, but definitely listen to the series in order, its well worth it.

Hmm...

Well this certainly feels very much unfinished and though I enjoyed parts, I didn’t particularly enjoy this one as I have for the books earlier in the series. To me Ash and the previous book in the series have been quite depressing and not books I would recommend unless that is your thing, if further books were released I would hesitate before buying.
