EMBERHAWK | by Jamie Foley #YA #Fantasy #BookReview #5Stars #Giveaway #SilverDaggerBookTours

Ember Hawk 
The Katrosi Revolution Book 1 
by Jamie Foley 
Genre: YA Fantasy 

The elementals have decided they're gods, and humans are nothing but fuel for their fire.

A starving trapper.

Merciless drought withers Kira's ranch, leaving her family hungry—and desperate enough to cross the border into the forbidden forest to trap wild game.

But the forest is infested with tree-scorpions and giant cats that wield elemental invisibility, and they're hungry, too. When Kira mistakes one elemental creature for another, she ends up with the last thing she wants in her trap: an enemy soldier.

An invisible spy.

Ryon can't afford to be a prisoner of war. If the Malaano Empire extracts his secrets, the rumors of war will be confirmed—and the tribes stand little chance against the Empire unless they can put aside generations of bad blood for the sake of a Tribal Alliance.

When Ryon's escape leaves Kira injured and her livelihood in flames, Ryon must choose between aiding her… or returning to his chieftess with vital information. But can he survive the trek when an elemental pursues him for his rejected heritage?

A sacrificial princess.

Imperial Princess Vylia is given a powerful ancient stone as her wave singer trials approach. But is the stone's whispering voice from the water goddess, or a masquerading elemental the creator god imprisoned millennia ago?

When Vylia's diplomatic mission to the tribal lands erupts in fiery revenge, she, Kira, and Ryon must work together to survive—or become pawns in the battle of the gods. 

One good look at this cover and I was in love with Emberhawk.  Even better, the story doesn't disappoint one iota!  And such a cool, unique world!  Wow!  I loved the characters.  They were full of empathy,  likeability, relatability, huge dynamics, and well-developed. I especially liked The world-building and plot itself were such a great adventure. So if you are looking for a story with high stakes danger, witty banter, and a sprinkle of romance, Emberhawk is for you. 

Highly recommend for 15+ for some romance, peril, injuries, and mild violence.

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
