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)

LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Drowning in Fire

Submitted by MichelleLOlson on June 16, 2014 - 9:09am.

Drowning In fire is the 3rd book in Hanna Martine’s The Elementals series. Set in the lush islands of Hawaii, Drowning In Fire is the story of two elementals, Griffin, of the water welders and Keko, of the fire welders. When these two embark on a taboo affair, both are stripped of everything. Griffin is denied a seat with the Senatus, the elemental council. And Keko loses her rank of general of her people. In order to get back her honor, Keko sets out on a dangerous mission. A mission that others want stopped. Griffin is offered another chance for a place within the Senatus if he can stop her.

Drowning In Fire moves along slowly at times and I wanted to kick Keko in the butt sometimes. The girl has issues. Griffin was was the glue for this book. Overall, this was a good read and I really enjoyed the world building and banter.
