Fire and water don’t mix.

Sophia: I’m Sophia Henley, your typical college freshman. I never expected a lion to be stalking me, nor for fire to come shooting out of my hands to protect my sister. Next thing I know, a drop-dead gorgeous guy shows up on my doorstep to sweep me away to a magical school, where I’ll learn to control my element and bond with a powerful creature called a Familiar.

I don’t believe I’m the savior of an ancient tribe, or the missing piece of a prophecy that’s more myth than reality. Worst of all, I’m forced to enter the Elemental Cup, where I’ll either earn my place in this society…or die trying.

Liam: The night I met Sophia, I didn’t think we’d form an undeniable connection. But I’m from the Water tribe, and she’s fire. I’m forced to push her away even as I’m falling for her.

I lost everything, yet Sophia makes me whole again. Our world is fixed on keeping us apart, but we’re in this tournament together. We have to keep each other alive at any cost – or I’ll give my life for hers.

It’s pretty clear. If I continue to play with fire, I’m going to get burned.

Holy Crap! Let me start out by saying this book is good. I mean to the point I immediate went and purchased the second installment. The characters completely have dynamic. I can’t lie and say that both Sophia and Liam were perfect because they certainly had their quarks. Luckily getting annoyed with a character is not new to me.

            When it comes to the writing of the story itself. I think Megan Linski and Alicia Rades did pretty dang good. I wish the characters had only been a little more decisive. I enjoy when we have a character that isn’t so wishy washy, and I feel both of our main characters had a ton of insecurities. There was some suspense mixed in that the authors did well with, however, I wish there was a bit more. It was a bit spread out here and there. Overall though the book was well written, and I never felt like I had to stop reading and just come back to it later, so that is certainly a plus.

            Now the narrators, Jennifer Jill Araya & Graham Halstead, did an amazing job. I feel they not only gave the characters the dynamic needed for this book to capture the reader, but they also brought life to each individual scene. I could definitely tell which character was in the lead in every individual scene. I feel I even learned quite a bit about our supporting characters.

            Overall, I am very pleased with the book. As I previously stated, I bought the second installment right away. I feel the production of the audiobook went off without a hitch so be rest assured I went for the audiobook the second time around as well. I haven’t had much of a chance to dive in completely to that book, but I definitely can not wait too. There is no doubt in my mind that any reader would enjoy this book as much as I did. It was such and fun read. I definitely think this book deserves 4 out of 5 stars.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Megan Linski. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
