Publisher's Summary

From HiJinks Ink Publishing and Shannon Mayer comes Firestorm, book three in the USA Today best-selling Elemental series. With over one million books sold, Shannon Mayer proves once again she can dominate her genre right out of the gate.

"My name is Larkspur, and I am an Elemental."

My people use the power of the earth to sustain life and defy our enemies. I should be at my father's side as a royal princess. But as a half-breed, bastard child, that isn't going to happen.

In a world of lava and fire, I am about to face my hardest trial yet. Not one of strength, or power, but intrigue and manipulation. However, my tolerance level for anyone outside of my family is at an all-time low, and the queen who rules the Pit expects complete obedience.

As Ash's life is held in the balance, I have just three days to prove his innocence and mine. This place holds more than a scorching heat; new foes, traitors, and creatures from the depths of the lava are all trying to keep us from surviving.

The only question left: Can I get us all out without being burned alive?

With Great Risk Comes Great Reward...

The tale of Lark is powerful yet deadly, and this installment is no exception. Almost as soon as the book begins, Lark’s life hangs in the balance and remains that way until the very end. We finally get to see Mayer’s fictional land of the Salamanders (or fire elementals), and it’s what you would expect, and even more. In true Mayer fashion, her affections for Ash remain yet nothing comes easy to them, and much to the reader’s disappointment, they spend most of the book apart.

Not surprisingly, nothing is as it seems which makes you really think about the plot instead of just plodding on. She gets you to question things as Lark does, and ponder what actions she should take, or even what could be lurking around the next corner. Once you get the hang of Mayer’s writing style, this doesn’t come as a surprise, but this book just wasn’t as good as the other two in the series. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but despite the intrigue of what could be perceived as the most mysterious elemental family, it just didn’t capture me the way the others had and should continue to do. It’s quite apparent that everything happens for a reason, and Lark is meant to forge on in this journey of hers, and even by now, the readers only have glimpses of the big picture of what will end up happening in the end. By the end of this book, I can clearly see how this will tie into the Rylee series, and happy to see that Peta finally makes her appearance. Though my misgivings, I still want to know how Lark’s story finally concludes so I’ll keep working my way through the series.

Another winning installment in the series!

I will start off by saying I loved this book, especially the narration. It felt like I was experiencing an old fashioned radio drama. The growth of Larkspur’s relationships with Ash and Pita were so organic, but also immense. I don’t want to spoil anything, so I will just say that if you’ve gotten to this point in the series, don’t stop. Firestorm is the best yet!

Getting Better

I’m enjoying this series. This was a better book than the one before it. Easier listening. There were a couple of very difficult scenes, but not endless conflicts chained together. A mystery is introduced so I’m looking forward to discovering the resolution. The narrator is one of the best out there for this genre. I could listen to her all day. I’ve listened to her narrate other books outside of this series and she always does a great job.

Firestorm

Yet another thrilling installment in the elementals series! Lark can’t seem to catch a break and is always being tested and pushed to her limit by the mother goddess. This book has been my favorite in the series so far. I can’t wait to see what is next!

Keeps you jumping at shadows

Trying to figure out who’s with or against Lark and who the mysterious person/people may or may not be isn’t easy. Even with the hints and clues it can be tough to figure out right up to the reveal.
The heartbreaking feelings with these new creatures is well-portrayed. It’s just as heart-breaking hearing about the children. Surprises all the way to the end.

another roller coaster

I honestly have to say the difference between reading and listening to this series is huge to me this time. I read through them at a fast and steady pace and really liked the books. Now listening seems to be really stirring up a lot more emotions than simple reading did. Maybe this is partly due to knowing more background story, but also due to the great interpretation of lark and her world through the narrator. On the other hand this all makes me more skeptical about additional characters and I trust no one, for Larks sake. I got really attached to her mix of strength and vulnerability. I am ready to dive into the next book!

3rd installment in the Elemental series- wow!!

Lark continues her quest set by the mother goddess in this brilliant 3rd installment. What I loved about the book is that Lark finally gets some much needed help in the form of a cat! Purrfect! I laughed out a few times and now have a new favorite character and I cant wait to see what happens next in their journey.

Lark and her big heart...

She continues to get herself in and out of trouble and then in again all because of her sense of right and wrong. That big heart causes so many rollercoaster moments.

Its been a while since I read the books, so listening to them is a great way to experience the stories, devoured this installment super quick and cannot wait for the next.

Highley recommend, you'll be hooked I'm sure.

The story continues

Larkspur is fearless and very protective. I would love her in my corner.
This story is tying in nicely with Shannon Mayers other series
