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 the gods.

Lee harrumphed and adjusted the soldier’s limp body on his shoulder. “I’m gonna have to break the arrow’s end off.”

Kira turned her back with a shudder. She clenched sweaty fists and waited for the bone-jarring snap of the arrow shaft. Guilt tumbled with some unidentified anxiety in her stomach, threatening to evict her lunch.

Why should she feel guilty? That tribesman had nearly gutted her like a pinkgill tuna. And his orange eyes were as bright as a demon’s.

And he was trespassing. And stealing.

Still, she’d shot him. Just looking at the wound made her gut flip.


Kira tried not to heave. At least the young man had been unconscious for that. She heard the rustling of fabric and dared to turn back around. “I’ll haul him to the barn for Granny to look at.” Lee hoisted the limp form back onto his shoulder and grunted at the weight. “Run and find Mom. We need to send someone to the barracks in Navarro right away.”

His eyes sparked with a clash of excitement and dread. “Tell ‘em we’ve got a Tribal Alliance soldier.”

  1. I love the book cover-very serene. I would ask the author what motivates her during a phase of writers block.

    1. Thanks--I'm glad you like the cover! :)

      Switching to a different creative project is what gets me through writer's block. I make dragons out of clay, create a character for Dungeons and Dragons, paint something, or some other random craft. Then, after a few days, I'll re-read what I've written so far and normally that sparks my passion to begin writing that project again.

      If that doesn't work, I just power through and force myself to write, since it's my job! And I might bribe myself with Chick-fil-A... :P

  2. I like the cover. It has great colors and graphics.
