About This Book
A 2017 READERS’ FAVORITE SILVER MEDAL WINNER!
A kick-ass heroine with pyrokinetic abilities and a license to kill. Enter Alec…vampire, scholar, and worst of all–fan. What could possibly go wrong?
Diana, the fire Elemental, is nearly burned out. Tired of traveling the world and losing innocent lives, she’s slowly slipping into a depression that may consume her. But when she discovers that a child’s life is in danger, she feels compelled to help. However, teaming up with one of the most powerful vampires in North America is the last thing she wants to do.
Academic scion, Alec Broussard prefers his studies over the opulent and vicious lifestyles of vampires. And when he learns of another missing child, Alec can’t shake the suspicion that his coven may be to blame. Joining forces with an Elemental may be his only hope to save the child and clear his coven’s name.
As Diana and Alec work together to save the children, they must relinquish their prejudices and trust one another. In time, Alec is wearing down the walls around her. But just when their friendship intensifies, Alec’s future is threatened. Now, it’s up to Diana to save him before it’s too late. Can this Elemental find the fire within her to protect him once and for all?
Liz Konkel for Readers’ Favorite wrote:
“Reminiscent of a hard-boiled detective novel, Fire is gritty, sharp, with an edgy quality and a snarky humor. Diana’s tragic background, her biting wit, and how closed off she is reminds me of the old time hard boiled detectives, but with a modern and supernatural spin. Most of the characters are something supernatural, but the world they work within is heartbreaking and realistic. The story is very grounded, but never once steps away from the magic. L.B. Gilbert knows how to deliver humor and emotion within lines of each other, with characters that are quirky, realistic, and follow different views of heroism. It’s refreshing to see a new take on the vampire story, as Alec is a scholar with an interest in archaeology. Fire is compelling, honest, a bit dark, but a strong opening for the series.”
