Is control over the elements a gift, or a curse?
Roxy thinks that she is in control of everything: with flames flaring at her fingertips and an equally fiery attitude, what more could she need? But then she meets Brae, a prince from a rival Realm, who turns her assumptions of superiority upside down.
Jasmine has none of Roxy’s confidence or intensity. But she does have a secret - and Brae - and she’s not going to give either up willingly.
Fire is the first novel in Elements of Power trilogy. It is a young-adult fantasy novel, based around the four classical elements: fire, water, earth and air. The story is split between two female protagonists: Roxy, a fiery Helian with a fierce sense of independence, and Jasmine, an Arcan orphan struggling to keep terrifying changes hidden from those she loves.
When Roxy's grandfather invites delegates from the other three world Realms to the Helian Realm for a summit, the two girls' lives collide. Neither will view their world in the same way again.
5 of 5 Fire
First I would like to say that this book took me by surprise! The cover is not one that really screams read me but the content in the story is one to die for! Lord the saying never judge a book by it's cover is never more real then in this case. The story is well developed and the author has done her homework because the descriptions of the worlds she has created stands out and grabs you and keeps you reading until the end comes and you are like what the hell???????????
Can you imagine being born with a gift of controlling one of life's elements? Can you imagine being able to control fire? Well that is a reality for Roxy who is a Princess of The Helian Realm. She can control fire. Only she is a little selfish and a little intense when she uses it. I would say she is a little spoiled brat that is used to getting her way. Then she meets Brea who is from a rival realm and her world turns upside down. She starts to see things a different way and she starts to like Brea. But Brea is taken and his girl will not let anyone or anything come in the way of them being together.
Jasmine is Brae's girl and she has a secret. Her secret once some of it is revealed is so incredible that it takes the reader by storm. Jasmine also knows that Roxy wants Brea and she is going to make sure that Roxy knows he is hers and no one is going to come between them and she also has to keep her secret from Roxy. What will happen if Roxy finds out Jasmine's secret? What will Brea do? This is one story that is a must read and you do not want to put it down and I need the second one right now because I just have to find out what happens. Lord I am so impatient but what goes down in the last three chapters leaves you breathless!
