Elemental magic, magic trials, a masquerade ball, and an enemies to friends to lovers plot? Yes please! I'm so glad I read these four novellas in the form of this collection because the pacing had me hooked. (goodreads reviewer)

I loved this book! I loved the two main characters Talise and Aaden. Their love story is so fun and I can't wait to see more of it. I loved the chemistry and dynamic between the two of them. If you love fantasy, romance and magic, you'll love this book! (goodreads reviewer)

I was incredibly happy to see my favorite, severely neglected trope being used. (goodreads reviewer)

This book was a lot of fun. It's a collection of four fantasy novellas that combine magical themes and a boarding school setting with elements of a dystopian nature - society segmented with the rich, middle class, and poor all living in different sectors. (goodreads reviewer)

I thought I knew where this story was going, but boy was I wrong. I love the tension between the two main characters and I can't wait to see what happens next! (goodreads reviewer)

This series just builds and gets better after each story. I loved the characters and the low level suspense and the secrets that abound. (goodreads reviewer)

The twists of this series are never ending and will have you gasping for breath along the way. Any fan of danger, adventure, elemental magic and pushing the buttons will love this group of stories! (goodreads reviewer)

The Elements of the Crown is a collection of the first four novellas in what promises to be an intriguing series. I loved the characters. I loved the setting. And I loved the intrigue. Talise has so much to gain and so much to lose, but her reasons for both are compelling. She is also likable, making me cheer for her even when it seems like the odds are stacked against her. (goodreads reviewer)

This is a brilliant read. Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start. Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believeable. Great suspense and action with wonderful world building that adds so much to the story. Can't wait to read more of these. (goodreads reviewer)

I never read a book that could keep the suspense and the "guessing" for so long. Trying to figure out what the real agenda of each character is, is a total challenge. This four books are only the beginning of this epic adventure and I hope many more will come because the story is truly amazing. Perfect for everybody, even for those that don't regard fantasy as their favorite. (goodreads reviewer)

I loved this story and the world-building was well done, and leaves room for plenty of character growth! (goodreads reviewer)

This book has deception, betrayal and romance with strong characters and awesome friendships. It is filled with lots of twists you don't see coming. (goodreads reviewer)

I really loved the magic system for these books. I am always a big fan of elemental-based magic, and I feel as if this system had its own unique attributes that really made it stick. (goodreads reviewer)

The plot of this series is fantastic! I was surprised at every turn of the page. (goodreads reviewer)

Amazing worldbuilding and character development starting from page one. The author has done a great job outlining how terrible living in the storm is and the importance to Talise of winning this competition. It also shows the terrible truth in these caste systems and in hierarchal societies. (goodreads reviewer)

The world-building and character development begin from the first page, and I was eager to learn more about this world, the emperor and element shaping. (goodreads reviewer)
