Publisher's Summary

From HiJinks Ink Publishing and Shannon Mayer comes Windburn (Book Four) 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.

The King is missing and his mind is cracked. It is up to me to find him before the Rim is taken over by the bloodthirsty heir to the throne.

But the path to finding the King is anything but straight, and I find myself in the human world facing possible banishment. All to find a Tracker who happens to be on the run from a demon, yet she is my only hope in bringing my father home.

Nothing is as it seems and I'm uncertain who is friend or foe. My impending punishment threatens to suffocate me as I defy our laws and fight to bring peace to my home...and fight to keep those I love the dearest alive.

How will I get both my father and I out of this one unscathed? Welcome to being The Chosen One.

Book four in the series caused me to shed many tears.

No matter how many times Larkspur saves the day or her loved ones, she is denied happiness for herself. This book was very sad for me. Lark above all deserves to have a happy stable existence with Ash.

Love, Hope, Betrayal, Rage; and the Plot Continues

Wow. The range of emotions in this next installment of the Elementals Series is limitless. Be forwarned though; this series starts taking some DARK turns. Mayer has been very open by now with the knowledge that this is NOT going to end well. If you prefer cute & cuddly stories; choose another author. It is what it is. I really think this story is the most pivotal one yet, and you can really see how the whole world is coming together between Lark, Rylee, and Pamela. It just amazes me how intricate the plot and this world Mayer has created are. Everything appears to be so well thought out that it’s an amazing journey to be on. Even though this is a world of magic, it’s so easy to get lost in the story and feel everything the characters do.

Though the characters are well developed by now, they keep on diving deeper and develop in ways you didn’t think was possible. There are plenty of twists and turns along the way. The part regarding Rylee was nothing short of magical, and brought me to tears though I don’t cry often. When she says there was a stillness as if the whole world stopped to take note of the pivotal moment (paraphrasing), it gave me chills because it felt for a minute the real world also stopped. I think this is my favorite book so far in the series, and the series had already been great to begin with.

It just gets better and better!

This series just gets better and better with each book, with Windburn being my favorite at this point. The plot thickens, Larkspur’s strength (both magical and as a person) grows, and new characters come into play. The stage is set, and everything is coming to a head. If you’ve read the others, don’t wait for this...dive right in. It’s incredible.

Great continuation

I’ve said it multiple times and I’ll say it again Shannon Mayer is a literary genius. The characters in her books trap you from the start and make you care about them. This series is no different. This particular book really pulls at your heartstrings and will break you if you’re not careful. I am so ready to continue this journey with Lark.

I love this series

I listened to this installment three times in a row. There’s just so much going on and so many things are uncovered. I made connections to other parts of the story, that I didn’t pay enough attention to before. Lark is really embracing her powers in this one and she starts to accept her role as destroyer. All these entwining strings are so much bigger than this one book. Excellent work and great world building.

Very nice weaving of stories

If you haven’t read the Rylee Adamson series, you might want to. It isn’t needed, but it does give added depth to this book and this one gives more depth to that series as well. It gives some intriguing background information to that series and I really like how these stories intertwine without being repetitive. Emotions abound in this book and are well portrayed by the narrator. There’s only one voice I noticed she used that didn’t feel to me like it matched the book description, but that was one minor moment and not truly important. Just over an hour left and the sorrow and horror is visceral.

Great adventure

I enjoyed listening to Windburn. So much happened to Larkspur it's almost hard to keep up. I do love Peta! She makes me laugh. All of the characters are so interesting and complex. The narrator does a great job with the different voices. She makes it easy to get lost in the story.

Captivating

This book had me captivated right from the start! This series has been amazing and it is easy to care about the characters. When I have to stop listening I am always wondering what will happen next and I am never disappointed when I start listening again.

I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

This one sets more of the scene

Struggled to finish because when I first read the book I struggled to finish the book as well. I always find at least 1 shannon book each series upsets me or frustrates the heck out of me. This book brings a lot into the light whilst throwing more shadows and I always feel like i want to scream at the characters. I know this is needed to push the story along and it demonstrates shannons craft well, but for me this one was a little less enjoyable but purely from a personal preference. Definitely need to read.

wow! 4th book in series and can't wait for more

This is the fourth episode in Lark's adventures and the final book before Rylee's time line begins so I had high expectations seeing that Rylee series is quite long before we find out what is instore for Lark.
I must say that I'm not disappointed! this book was fast paced, full of action and adorable characters. seriously the author can make a spin off series for so many of the side characters.
I was a bit frustrated at the ending... not going to give away spoilers and I cant wait to see Lark again soon. just need to work through Rylee!
