    Damn those love-triangles! I hate them! She better choose Ash in the end, not both or Cactus, but ASH! Rate: 2.5/3-2 stars.

    3.5 The fun goes on! If you've stuck to the series so far, it's definitely worth continuing. The plot gets more and more complex and, one of the things I really appreciate about this series is that it's fast-paced. True, maybe more details would be good from time to time, but I don't really care about that. It's a fun series, it has me hooked, I love the characters, so on we go! 3.5 The fun goes on!

    Reviewing by: Rabid Reads. Fans of Shannon Mayer’s RILEY ADAMSON series will appreciate this installment because it fills in some of the blanks of what happened before PRICELESS, and there’s a bit of character crossover, but nothing too major, so regardless of whether you’re in-the-know on Tracker happenings or not, you’ll enjoy WINDBURN.

Fans of Shannon Mayer’s RILEY ADAMSON series will appreciate this installment because it fills in some of the blanks of what happened before PRICELESS, and there’s a bit of character crossover, but nothing too major, so regardless of whether you’re in-the-know on Tracker happenings or not, you’ll enjoy WINDBURN. This was however the bottom-of-the-pile volume out of the four, at least for me it was, on account of it being a transition book, and the fact that compared to the other three elements, it felt like air drew the short straw. If it weren’t for all of the links to the author’s other ten novels, I don’t think that I would have liked this story nearly as much due to the threads being a little jumbled. Lark is searching for her father, sampling the Cactus/Asher goods, fulfilling her favour to Elle, and making her mark on two of the ELEMENTAL families among other things. I enjoyed discovering why Giselle gets paid in stuffed animals, how the protagonist earned her nickname, and Blackbird’s identity, but there were no big aha moments to speak of other than maybe that last one. This series started with earth, then moved on to water and fire, so I’d anticipated that air would receive an equal amount of attention. Sadly, I found that the world building for the fourth power type was rather light. Lark’s stay in the Eyrie was short lived, and the Sylphs didn’t get anywhere near the attention that the other Elementals did which was a letdown because one of the highlights of these books has been the many and fascinating differences between the families. The two-year time jump certainly didn’t help either. Mayer has a real talent for fleshing out characters that you’ll either love or hate; the heroine is moving away from the vulnerable girl of RECURVE, and towards the formidable force who helps to save the world in BLOOD OF THE LOST. I believe that the next title will center around the lead’s second ability which has me all kinds of excited! Peta was her usual delightful self, and Shazer is growing on me too. On the opposite side of the spectrum we have Lark’s entire family (except Bella), Cassava, and the Mother Goddess herself. *shakes fist* WINDBURN was about what you’d expect from a bridge novel. Good, but not great. ~3.5 Stars ** I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. **

    I have really liked this series so far, but I have to admit, after finishing book 4 and a novella in this series its starting to get a bit repetitive. The heroine goes on dangerous mission, risks her life to save others and do good, and then gets punished for her deed. Over and over again. I am also starting to tire of this drawn out love triangle. If the next book in this series doesn't have somewhat of a different feel to it I may consider myself done with this series.

    Windburn to me felt like a book of transition. There was so much going on this book that at one point I felt like I was being pulled in several different directions. We start where Firestorm left off. Lark has been tasked by her sister to look for their father. Personally I would have left him to rot but Lark is made up of firmer stuff. We are quickly thrown into the action but this time it's Lark, Peta, and Cactus. Ash stays behind to give Lark a head start. Blackbird is back and boy was I shock Windburn to me felt like a book of transition.

Blackbird is back and boy was I shocked when his identify was finally revealed. No one is who they seem in this book and even the Mother Goddess was out of control. The journey to find her father was not an easy one and in the end he's still an asshole of epic proportions. But I'm starting to see it's not all his fault and I can honestly say I HATED the Mother Goddess this time around. Free will is but an illusion. Tom was hilarious and the Slyphs leave a lot to be desired. I don't know which elemental family is worse. They all seem self centered and vicious for no reason. The take offense where none is really given and they lash out. I don't know why Lark keeps trying to save them or why she feels bad when she can't. I say kill them all but that's just me :) We also see why some things were the way they were in Blood of the Lost and everything is starting to come full circle. I enjoyed meeting Elle and Bram and seeing a bit of them in Windburn. Mrs. Mayer can weave a story like no other still. I just felt for all the transition a few things should have been fleshed out a bit more to keep your head from spinning with how quickly things were bouncing around. All in all I am looking forward to book 5 and where these new developments will take us in Lark's journey.

    I have received an ARC from the author in exchange for my honest review. Windburn picks up right after Firestorm ends. Bella asks Lark to find their father. In order to do this, Lark has to find a Tracker which is against the rules. Stupid rules. Along the way, we meet several characters from Rylee's world. After all Lark has done for her family she gets screwed again. The Mother Goddess is not exactly a nice person. Her father, is as always, an ***hole.

    I received this book as an arc for a honest review... I loved this book.. Windburn is the 4th in the series and continues on exactly where Firestorm finished.. There is a twist in the story that will have you gobsmacked... I Love that Shannon is going back to the beginning of Larkspur story and giving us a picture of how Larkspur and Rylees lives intercept and how big of a part Larkspur has played.... This book answers a lot of questions, but there are plenty more questions that need to be answered. I received this book as an arc for a honest review... I loved this book..

    Well written, intensely passionate, another well written entry in this saga. The depth of the characters written in this series continues to impress. Strongly written with passion, done with forethought that blends seamlessly and progresses naturally in the story being told. That is a trait in this series that I rarely encounter, much less as well woven in the story as is done here. Another strong book in this series. Thank you Shannon Mayer.

She is going to need help in the form of a Tracker - a Tracker who has her own issues and is just as hard to find. Lark knows this can only end badly for her, but her people need their King. This has been the best full book in the series so far. It managed to make me cry a little. It made me interested what was going on. I just plain cared. The back 40% of the book is really, really strong. If you've read the Rylee Adamson series, these events probably aren't as big a surprise as they would be to someone who hasn't read that series. Yet, even if you know what was going to happen it is still really, really powerful. Knowing doesn't prepare you for the impact they'll have. There are so many things happening at once, so many feelings to feel. It really makes the experience enjoyable. The first 60% of the book is a bit weak. Like, the back 40% makes up for the weakness, but it was still a bit of a slog to get through. This first part was mostly a tie in to the Rylee Adamson series, though it is set something like 25-30 years prior to the start of that series. It kind of meanders a bit. It has a purpose, I know it does, yet it feels like it doesn't have any purpose because of what is going on and how everyone is acting. We just have to get through these parts to get to the part of the book that matters, because the part that matters hinges on this meandering journey. I was bored. Everything felt like it just didn't matter. Which is basically the entire point of the book. I mean, I guess I'm not surprised that Lark is the one who has to look for her crazy father who has been nothing but trouble. I'm still a bit confused on why we have to be searching for him at all, to be perfectly honest. He causes nothing but trouble every time he is around because he just isn't stable. He doesn't feel like a leader at all, and they're getting along fine without him so far. It still feels like a cop out on the part of every other earth elemental to just let Larkspur handle it. Why do the Enders even exist if not for this very purpose? Also, this love triangle has changed from unnecessary to just one of my many nightmares. While Ash is pretty okay, Cactus is just a nightmare. Every single person knows that he will not handle being told by Lark that he isn't the only one she cares about. He is filled with a jealous rage. Even when he finds out himself, he causes all sorts of problems throughout the plot. All over the place he feels slighted, acts out, constantly badgers, and is just a plain nuisance. Again and again he has to be told by everyone (except Lark) that he just isn't good for her, that he isn't capable of being what she needs. AAAAAA! Enough already! Overall, Windburn has been the best in the series. Incredibly emotionally powerful. I wish all of this series was so easy to connect to as the end of Windburn.

Windburn is book four in The Elemental Series, featuring, Larkspur as the main kickass character. It picks up pretty much right after Firestorm; so no, you can’t read these as standalones, go back to the beginning, and start with book one, Recurve. Lark is back at The Rim, and needs to find her father, who has disappeared. In order to do this, she needs to locate a Tracker. Now, this is where all the good stuff comes into play. Hopefully, you have read the Rylee Adamson novels; if not, you are in for such an exciting ride! Rylee’s present is Lark’s future in the Elemental books, and the Rylee books are Lark’s past! I know wrap you mind around that! Its freaking mind blowingly awesome!!!! I don’t even know if I can explain it correctly! OMG! The two stories intertwine in a HUGE way, I mean Huge, and it really starts in Windburn, for The Elemental Series! In the Rylee books we only got little snippets of what actually happened to Lark, never the whole story. Well this, my friends is the start to the whole story, and it does not disappoint one iota!!! So what am I telling you? First you NEED to read the Rylee books. You can wait and read them after this, but you absolutely NEED to read them! I am just so freaking excited on how the story and series is turning out! I can’t fathom how Shannon can keep everything strait, and makes it easy for her readers. She is a brilliant writer! I can’t explain it correctly, but when you read it, it totally makes sense! It is hard to write a review and not give anything away, because I just want to gush about the entire brilliant story! I will say that, Windburn is the best story to date in the Elemental Series. Lark is the epitome of heroines I love, she has the biggest heart and soul you have ever seen, and she is repeatedly tested. Through it all, she stays true to herself, but remains the kick ass, tack no names, Ender I want to see succeed and find her true happiness and peace, but not too soon, because I’m not ready for this series to end yet....Sara http://www.boundlessbookreviews.com https://www.facebook.com/BBReviews

After the amount of time spent in and the major events that happened in the Rim, the Deep and the Pit, I was a little surprised by how little actually happened in air's neck of the woods. In fact most of the story happened anywhere BUT in the Eyrie and most of the major events of the book didn't really have anything to do with them. What's up with that? We got some set up for some things in future books, but I can't help feeling like the Sylphs got gipped a little bit. The love triangle isn't my favorite part of the Elemental Series. I don't really know why, but I don't care much for Cactus. His jealousy I can understand, but he is a bit of a child when it comes to not getting his way. I have to agree with Peta's assessment of him. Ash on the other hand I love. He is always there for Lark and they seem to fit together really well. He has my vote all the way. WINDBURN answered a lot of questions I have had after not only reading the previous books in the series, but also from reading the Riley Adamson series. I'm very excited to see what ROOTBOUND will bring us and see Lark back in action. * This book was provided free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Peta is always going to be a favorite of mine, and I don’t believe Lark’s personal journey would’ve progressed as far without her feline friend. She’s truly more than a friend or companion -- she’s her heartmate. The young girl who entered Ender training alone and unloved is becoming the nucleus at the center of an unconventional family. She has so much to endure in Windburn, and my emotions ranged from heartfelt warmth to anxious fear to heartbreak and relief. In some ways it feels like the journey is just beginning, but looking back Larkspur has already come so far. No matter where Shannon takes Larkspur and her friends next, I’m loyally along for the ride -- even if I am biting my cuticles in anxious anticipation!

It is fun and interesting to get more bits of Rylee's story as Lark's story unfolds. It really sets up a complete fantasy world that is well developed and believable. **Spoiler Ahead** The only part that I didn't enjoy as much, was the time jump when Lark is first locked away in the oubliette. This is just a matter of personal preference. It seems like a lot should have happened in two years and I'm hoping we get to hear more about it. Regardless, I'm looking forward to the next installment--a lot!

    I really like The Elemental Series, and Windburn is just another reason why. There is so much good to say about this book, but I will be brief. Larkspur is trouble -- like moth to flame, she can't help it. And that's good for us as readers, because we don't want to read boring books. We like to be surprised, so as you are reading this novel, and you think you know what's going to happen (like I did), get ready to be surprised! In a really good way! Keep 'em coming, Shannon!

    I have been a massive fan of this series from the start. So happy to see Lark finally getting those fists out, she's had such a hard time of it all! This installment has left me hanging out for more Ash. But at the same time I love that this story is about a strong woman who relies on herself. I'm impossible to please. Give me more Ash.

    I received this book as an ARC. I could not put it down. The best book yet in the elemental series. If you are a fan of Shannon Mayer's Rylee Adamson and Elemental series this is a must read. So many of your questions will be answered, but will still leave you anticipating the next book! I received this book as an ARC. I could not put it down. The best book yet in the elemental series.

    What can I say That I haven't already said about this series. The ending is unbelievable and leaves you wanting more. I can't wait to start the next one.

    Audiobook review: This book is giving me a headache from all the crying. I’m so sad for Lark. It’s just not fair. There aren’t many words to say... poor little Larkspur.

    Another series that started good, then just kept getting stretch into more and more books to the detriment of the storyline.

    Pure fantasy at its finest. I would say this is less urban fantasy though than the Rylee Adamson series. Even though it's set in the same world, the Elementals keep to themselves making this a lot more removed from the "normal" world. I think for some readers it will be hard to move between the series - for me personally, I'm a massive "classic" fantasy fan before all else so reading this was like coming home and gave me the same warm fuzzy feelings.

I think for some readers it will be hard to move between the series - for me personally, I'm a massive "classic" fantasy fan before all else so reading this was like coming home and gave me the same warm fuzzy feelings. The series isn't really anything new in the genre, the same old fantasy tropes (The Chosen One, quest through different lands, evil foe who has spread through the land and must be defeated, etc) appear throughout - but Mayer hits all the right notes with her portrayal. Windburn is one hell of a ride. I feel like with all Mayer's series - it starts off slowly rolling down the mountain until you're full steam ahead and things just keep breaking off. It's an insane ride. The first few books were action packed but this kept on picking up speed. So much so, I don't even know where to start. The Sylph's (Air Elementals) feature in this one - Lark makes a trip to their home the Eyrie to rescue her father. But the Sylph's a way more a side note in this book because Lark has her own problems. Her father's missing and she's tracking him. This book is a real treat for fans of Mayer's Rylee Adamson series because many of the characters make cameo appearances in this book. So to track her father she needs to find a Reader to find a Tracker to find her father. Griffin recommends a young Reader just coming into her powers and guess who that is? Hi, Giselle. I loved seeing the early glimpse into Giselle's life. She was very much like Milly more than Rylee I'd say. So they need Giselle to find a Tracker. Jack makes a brief appearance and then we get to meet Rylee's mother, Elena - because guess what - she's the Tracker they need! It was really fun to see all the backstory coming together and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love Ash. I kinda hate Cactus though - he annoyed me often. I liked Samara until I didn't. And I adore Peta. I will say though this story is seriously twisted. Some of the reveals I saw, other's blindsided me. I can't wait to get started on the next one.
