Martine is back with the third installment of her gripping and gritty Elementals series, which features an alternate world where several alien races hide in plain sight. Martine takes an angry and bitter heroine on a life-changing journey that is occasionally frustrating, but always well worth the trip. In the multifaceted world of the Elementals, culture clashes lead to devastating results that may be difficult to mend. This is one series that is only growing in richness and complexity!

Three years ago, new Olfarian leader Griffin Aames attempted to reach out to the Senatus, a diplomatic body made up of the other elemental races. Sadly, a misunderstanding caused the meeting to end badly and Griffin was banned. Chimeran general Keko carries deep anger and guilt over having had an affair with Griffin. Griffin has never forgotten Keko and still harbors feelings for the stubborn fire elemental. When Griffin receives a farewell call from her, he realizes that Keko is leaving on a suicide mission to help her people. The Senatus wants her stopped, so Griffin volunteers … but will he save or destroy her? (BERKLEY, Apr., 330 pp., $7.99)
