A forbidden love…Gorgeous—and dangerous—Kai Seaver is a Flood, able to transform into water. His people are the natural enemies of Torches. But an innocent kiss is all it takes to kindle a different kind of fire as a flood of new emotions brings Phoenix and Kai together, in spite of their family’s objections.
A town with a lethal secret…Until recently, Torches and Floods have lived in harmony in Rosewood. But now a string of mysterious arsons threatens that fragile peace. When suspicions point at Phoenix’s father, Kai Seaver may be the only one who can help Phoenix. His special abilities make him a huge ally in a firefight—and a very dangerous boyfriend. As the treacherous flames draw closer, Phoenix may be forced to choose: protect her family or be swept away in the tidal wave of her newfound love.
Orphaned Naia Belle is an apprentice songstress, attached for life to her silkhouse in the illustrious pleasure capital of Sorrel, Felicity. But as the dark clouds of war descend upon Felicity, Naia, ill-prepared and not yet fully trained, is forced from her home and into a nightmare she never imagined.
Driven once more from the haven she finds, posing as a boy and conscripted into a foreign army, Naia struggles to remain hopeful in spite of the trials she faces. Then she discovers there are those who wish to reopen Heaven’s Gate and allow titans to walk the mortal realms once more. Only one power can stop them.
As her friends and allies fall around her, beset by sand wraiths and the soulless dead, with everything she loved now lost to her, Naia faces yet another challenge: the blackened plains of the Void, where she may learn the true power of her voice. A power the necromancers and titans would kill to stop.
