Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Great listen"
    If you could sum up Fire in three words, what would they be?

    Magic, action, snark


    What other book might you compare Fire to and why?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The conversations between Diana and Katie are very moving, poor little girl has had a very rough time in her short life.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, can't recommend enough!

    "An exciting story with a kick ass heroin"

    5++ Stars for Fire (The Elementals book one) by L. B. Gilbert
    Genre: Paranormal, vampires, witches, Elementals, Romance, Suspence
    Audience: YA, NA, Adults. Fans of Kim Harrison will love this book
    Series: The Elementals
    Disclaimer: I received the book for an honest review

    Synopsis:
    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.

    Audio notes:
    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.

    Conclusion:
    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.

    being dyslexic, I never read allot but I loved books...doesn't mix right? NOPE...wrong...Audible allows me to "read" at a pace that works for me and they have a great selection of books to keep me interested. I'm a fiction , sci-fi, and adventure books with strong female characters reader. I have been on a Vampire kick lately so female protags have been on my list.

    "Glad I found L. B. Gilbert"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this audiobook to a friend. I was unfamiliar with this author until someone recommended them to me and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed listening to this book. I will spread the word so that others can enjoy it as much as I did.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fire?

    One of the most memorable moments for me was when Diana introduced herself to the vampires. She made one heck of an entrance. Another of my favorite moments was when she confronted the vampire council. These are not moments to be missed. Diana is a smart, talented, badass protagonist with a snarky attitude. My favorite kind of girl.


    What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Tanya Eby does a very good job of portraying these characters. They all have distinct voices that are fairly easy to distinguish.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Snarky, badass, elemental

    "Excellent Storyline"

    Well plotted story of a Elemental and a vampire and a love story without sex all over the place. I like the fact that though vamps are looked at as the top of the predator hierarchy this tiny little elemental can kick his ass and can keep him terrified.

    Interesting to see what happens with the other Elementals in the series. And the whole tie between the story is the Mother going back to sleep. I need to know. I will be buying the second in the series to see where this goes.

    I did receive a copy of this audible book free in exchange for an honest review.

    What did you love best about Fire?

    the characters


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the main characters end up being right for each other. They are an unlikely pair yet they work. I like how they are both afraid to make the first move in admitting that they belong together & I loved how it showed that women are more than capable of taking care of themselves & maybe even helping out their man.


    What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

    I think she did an awesome job. She was easy on the ears & I liked how she tried to change her voice just that little bit so each character had their own voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no...I just enjoyed the whole thing


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to reading the next book. I'm hoping the library carries it.

    "Snarky Strong Female Book"

    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.
