Book 7 in the Elemental Series

When I bought this book, I didn’t realize that Shannon Mayer was going to rip my heart out, and stomp on it. Did everyone know it was the last book to Lark’s story??


OK, lets back up for a moment. I will take that back, we got a conclusion to the story, and I must have to say, I loved every moment. Lark was so amazing, she somehow kept her shit together, Raven was even impressive. We learn why Talan is such a big D, and why he is such a big D. Hah, because he’s a child who didn’t get his was, seems like.


Even Rylee and Pamela make a short appearance in this book, and it was, tear worthy. I want to say about halfway through, everything started making me tear up. Ash, Shazer, Peta, even a moment with Cassava, and she was not on the best of terms with Lark the last time we left them, or most of this series.

Thank you Shannon, for this series, and conclusion that wasn’t drawn out, and a story that has pulled emotionally for months. I was irritated that you had taken a break from this series to write the Venom Trilogy, but I take it back! I can’t wait to re-read these books.

Grade: 5 stars

About the book

This is the 7th installment of The Elemental Series by USAT Author Shannon Mayer.
“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.
Taken away by the last Spirit Walker, I am mean to train with him so that I can finally stop the false mother goddess and her plans to rule both humans and elementals. I am meant to train so that I can meet her on even ground, but training takes time.
Time is not something we have. The world is coming apart at the seams as the humans rain down destruction upon their own kind and the supernatural world. The false mother goddess is hunting down the most powerful elementals to take the last of their power, and through it all, the secrets of who I truly am begin to spill upward.
I must find the strength to stop the mother goddess, and to save our world, but which aspect of my heart will hold me up and what will it cost me in the end?
