Blurb from Goodreads:To avoid persecution, the Feiru will do anything to keep their elemental magic a secret from humans—even lock away their children for life. Few know what goes on inside the prison system for magic users, but that is about to change…
Kiarra Melini overhears the dangerous secrets of her blood and decides that if Feiru elemental magic is to survive, she needs to die. But before she can finish the deed, a handsome black-clad man kidnaps her from prison and introduces her to an anti-prison activist group. As the prison retrieval squad hunts for her, Kiarra must overcome the demons of her past or risk losing not only her newfound freedom, but also the man who reawakens her desires and captures her heart.
Jaxton Ward finally rescues his older brother from prison, but instead of helping with his brother’s recovery, he’s ordered to train Kiarra—a stubborn elemental fire user who claims her magic is gone. But just as Kiarra starts trusting him with her secrets, the prison enforcers catch up with them. Now Jaxton must find a way to keep his family safe while also protecting the only woman able to ignite both his temper and his passion.
Review: ***I received a copy of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.***
Going into this book I honestly had no idea what to expect. Feiru was such a different concept I really didn't know what I was getting into. Well I was in for a pleasant surprise with this. Feiru are humans who have the ability to call upon the elements i.e. Water, Fire, Wind and Earth. To protect those with these abilities the firstborn children were placed into AMT facilities for their own protection or so everyone thinks, except DEFEND, who know the truth about the AMT.
This is where out swoonworthy hero Jaxton comes in. Damn somebody grab me a fan this man is hot. He is breaking into the AMT facility to free his brother and he has to free somebody else. Our heroine Kiarra. Kiarra has been in the facility for 15 years and believes she lost her ability to control fire. She is basically a shell of a human being and she was about to turn to a drastic measure when Jaxton comes in.
When we first start off with Kiarra she is scared naive and difficult to connect with but as the novel progress she becomes an intelligent, strong independent heroine, though she does keep some of her naivete. Jaxton had his a**hole moments but really lets face it most paranormal romance heroes do. I loved the romance between these too and I really enjoyed the different perspectives we got. It was a fast paced read that kept me on the edge of my seat reading until our super happy ending.
I give this read
