Publisher's Summary

A trip abroad. A dark secret. Her family's legacy of magic may cost a teen her life....

Georjie’s summer is shaping up to be a big disappointment. Trapped in Ireland with her aunt’s gorgeous but cold adopted son, Jasher, her "vacation" gets worse with each passing day. But when a trip to the greenhouse reveals glowing cocoons she shouldn't be able to see, she embarks on a quest to solve a magical mystery....

In the pages of an ancient diary, Georjie learns a dark family history and an incredible earthly power. But as she digs deeper and realizes she isn't the only one with a touch of magic, the ghosts of the past may do much more than haunt her. 

Can Georjie provide justice for her ancestors before she becomes the next family victim? 

Born of Earth is an enchanting stand-alone novel in the Elemental Origins series YA urban fantasies. If you like powerful young women, dangerous boys, and spooky spirits, you’ll love USA Today best seller A.L. Knorr’s ghostly adventure.

great as usual

enjoyed as I have all of this authors books. All clean and she doesn't go crazy with details like some do. Sometimes too much description is overkill but she gives just what is needed.

couldn't put this one down

I absolutely love this series. Born of Earth especially, actually couldn't stop listening to it and had to eventually just go ahead and finish. The author is truly talented she has a way of taking you away into the book I can imagine each scene. I'm listening to her Series in a time when everyone scared of the Coronavirus. This book has offered me great comfort and least last couple of days. Thanks

Haunting

Full disclosure: I received the audible book free for review. This haunting tale is a story of learning beginnings, finding roots, and righting wrongs. A great tie to the elements in the series

Great read/listen

Born of Earth (Elemental Origins #3), my 13th read from author A.L. Knorr. WOW! Incredible read! I was given an Audible copy of this book, included in Born of Fire, & am voluntarily reading & reviewing it. Gabra Zachman’s talented narration adds to the well-written book's enjoyment. Extremely well written. I’ll be reading more from this author! Better yet this is the fifth book in a multi-book series that I look forward to reading. Next up, Born of Aether (Elemental Origins #4)! (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Another cracker! Brilliant!

After reading born of water and born of fire, you grow attached to the previous characters and I felt nervous that I wouldn’t like the next ones as much, but nope, I loved her. I am married to an Irish man, and was nervous that maybe she wouldn’t get Ireland, but no again,well done. Or fair play to ya. I love flowers too, so gorgeous descriptions as well as history, mysteries and action. Good fast pace. Good endings with everything tied up.

Loved it

What’s not to like? A well written fantasy for young adults that anyone who has a love or fantasy and romance should enjoy regardless of age. This is book 2 of a great series and I am looking forward to reading the next book in this unusual take on the fae.

I want to be an Elemental!

Once again I have been transported to the mix of the the real world and the supernatural. A.L. Knorr is a master at bringing to life the myths we grew up with in the modern world. I can’t wait for the next story in the series. In fact I think I’ll start it now.

Just keeps getting better

This series is getting better and better each book. This is Georjie's story of how she became an Elemental. She goes to Ireland to stay with her aund and adopted cousin. Her cousin is cold and distant towards her but as time goes on, they become friends. Jasher shows Georjie the buttlerfly pupae and then points one out to her asking her if she can see it - of course she can, but she is shocked when she finds out it's a fairy pupae! From here it's a wild ride of finding out the history of her family to saving Jasher and his estranged father. I can't wait to find out Akiko's story and how the friends react to each others' amazing summer and the turn of events each of them have taken. Very well written and narrated beautifully by Gabra Zackman

Elementals still going strong! Great!

I have read the book, and have now heard the audiobook! I have said before it is lovely to have the stories read to me, it really adds a dimension of life to the stories that you don’t necessarily get it with just reading it. This is the third book in the elemental series and follows Georjayna to Ireland, where she undertakes her own transformation/development whilst on a journey of self discovery. She learns an awful lot about herself and her family history whilst staying with her aunt and adopted cousin, who is wrestling with Demons of his own so to speak. I won’t post spoilers, but you need to read and listen to the story! Another brilliant offering from AL Knorr!
