Nym is a slave that no one wants. As a Elemental that usually is only reserved for men, Nym is not only dangerous but rare.

When a court adviser sees who Nym really is, she is bought and has a choice to be trained as a secret weapon to defend her hometown Faelen or to be killed. Valuing her life, Nym begins training and is placed into a world full of betrayal, politics and evil she has never heard of. 

Can Nym really kill in the name of war as she is trained to do?

This was an interesting read. I really loved the fact of a “Storm” (from X-Men) character.  Nym is a very powerful character who is human as in her emotions.

She has a conscience, a very large one which in a lot of causes messes things up frequently. I liked that part of her to a certain extent; after a while it got really annoying.

My biggest issue with Nym was the “I can’t do it” syndrome she has all the way til the end of the book. You are the most powerful Elemental in that world, and has proved it on more and one occasion and yet you really doubt yourself even at the risk of your friends lives, and the person you love? WOW.

Another issue I have is the almost love triangle. The author cut it short but there was crazy hints that there was a triangle and that really would have killed the book. Yes, a guy and a girl can be friends but there is a line between friendly flirting to annoy someone and I really mean it flirting.

As for the writing, the author kept my attention throughout the entire book. I loved the pace of it and the ins and out despite some of my issues with Nym.

Oh! I didn’t like the ending.

Overall, I enjoyed this read. 3 Pickles.
