The elementals have decided they’re gods, and humans are nothing but fuel for their fire.
A starving trapper.
Merciless drought withers Kira’s ranch, leaving her family hungry—and desperate
enough to cross the border into the forbidden forest to trap wild game.
But the forest is infested with tree-scorpions and giant cats that wield elemental
invisibility, and they’re hungry, too. When Kira mistakes one elemental creature for
another, she ends up with the last thing she wants in her trap: an enemy soldier.
An invisible spy.
Ryon can’t afford to be a prisoner of war. If the Malaano Empire extracts his
secrets, the rumors of war will be confirmed—and the tribes stand little chance
against the Empire unless they can put aside generations of bad blood for the sake
of a Tribal Alliance.
When Ryon’s escape leaves Kira injured and her livelihood in flames, Ryon must
choose between aiding her… or returning to his chieftess with vital information. But
can he survive the trek when an elemental pursues him for his rejected heritage?
A sacrificial princess.
Imperial Princess Vylia is given a powerful ancient stone as her wavesinger trials
approach. But is the stone’s whispering voice from the water goddess, or a
masquerading elemental the creator god imprisoned millennia ago?
When Vylia’s diplomatic mission to the tribal lands erupts in fiery revenge, she,
Kira, and Ryon must work together to survive—or become pawns in the battle of
I thoroughly enjoyed Emberhawk! It was a great, lightweight fantasy read that honestly just made me happy. There was a point where I was reading and I decided to get to a certain point in the book and stop for the night, but I kept going because that’s where things really started to happen! I just needed more.
I really loved the world building. There wasn’t a lot, but it wasn’t lacking either. I feel like Jamie really paced it out well. All of the information that came out came at appropriate timing. There wasn’t a need to jump back and forth to reference information. It was easily laid out.
My favorite character was probably Ryon. I think he was more relatable than Kira. I enjoyed Kira, however, she seemed a bit too typical YA heroine at times being strong-willed and a bit bullheaded. However, her character growth seemed to make up for it in the end. I also really enjoyed how her family played a part of the story not just in her motives, but also in person.
I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series! I gave this 4 stars.
