I loved how this story unfolded. Joshua is the perfect counterbalance to Felicia's smoldering hot personality. His icy gift is beautiful, too. The scenes beside the stream in the forest were magical.
Very well written with characters readers will love. A fantasy adventure on elemental powers, with plenty of sweet romance along the way. I highly recommend this book.
This book is very different from her previous work and it made me appreciate her versatility as a writer. This is the first part of a four part series and I immensely enjoyed it. The nature theme for a paranormal genre, references to the “X-Men” and the likes really got me glued to the book. (Ps: I am a big paranormal fiction fan.) I have re-read passages of the book; just because I liked the way they expressed the fire or water element. The descriptions and personalities are very well written and the characters come alive within the pages of the book.
As usual in the emotions department Devika was in her element and she has brought out the pain and disillusionment of the Felicia and Joshua and made me sob at many a paragraph. The isolated little boy, the alone man, standing on the sides, apart and trying so hard to be detached; but like all of Devika’s main protagonists, so very human.The images of Felicia as the small ignored child; yet growing into a strong, friendly woman were very well written. I was surprised she didn’t burn out as a teenager with the attitude of her family.
The emotions are the strong suit of this story as is the chemistry between Joshua and Felicia. I just loved the sparks that flew when they met; the author has done full justice to their love story and has meshed beautifully the paranormal part of their nature as well as the love story!
I really enjoyed the story line and how the element of paranormal was always there, just waiting to grab you as a reader. The descriptions when they are controlling or letting go of their elements of Mother Nature is a treat to read.
The climax was a liberation of emotions (literally) and I enjoyed the slow build-up that led to it. Kind of like a simmering pot that overflows.
I enjoyed this one because it was different from the regular paranormal. If you like this genre you will dig it!
This is the first book in recent time that I’ve read, where the author has successfully mixed wisdom of both western and eastern culture through various lessons learned by Felicia. I loved the metaphoric (can’t reveal much) maturing of her power and found it very sweet and apt for the fire theme. Another thing which I liked was skillful weaving of details like colors, weather, clothing, food with respect to magical power into the plot. The eloquent portrayals made me want more as I came to the end of the story.
If you strip away the fantasy, this is a fabulous love story of two orphans, different from ordinary people, thus both feeling alone, struggling to have a purpose in life, until they meet each other. And while they are almost exact opposite is some ways, they resonate to each other, and together they are whole.
Adding to the flavor and complexities of the story, Devika Fernando gives them something extraordinary.
Joshua has the ability to call forth water and ice, while Felicia is fire, only she fears her fire and tries to repress it as she lives the life of a boring librarian. She’s ashamed of her powers. But this handsome young man understands the fear within her. He’d been there, and if only she’ll trust him, he can help her… or cause her harm.
That issue plays out on a different layer, so keep an eye out. There are clues.
