Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she's been told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of the Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the most powerful tyrant and mage the world has ever known. This would be a suicide task for anyone, let alone a reluctant sixteen-year-old girl with no training.

Guided by his mother's visions and committed to avenging his family, Prince Titus has sworn to protect Iolanthe even as he prepares her for their battle with the Bane. But he makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the tyrant closing in, Titus must choose between his mission—and her life.

4.0 The Burning Sky ( Elemental Trilogy #1)
Still a great read this second time around. However, I decided to remove a star to its initial five star rating, because there were some things that could have been more developed. [spoiler] For instance, in the last pages when Titus is flying the Wyvern and the Bane and Madame Inquisitor are on his...

5.0 Review | The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas
Who knew that one ruined elixir could start a life of infinite danger? Iolanthe certainly did not, or she would have never attempted to fix that stupid potion. Controlling lightning and calling it to strike the potion seemed like a good idea at the time, it was a pretty important potion, but it caus...

5.0 The Burning Sky (The Elemental Trilogy, #1)
With a whole lot of curiosity I delved into this book, and was completely immersed in the world Sherry Thomas created. I was hooked by page one! Everything from the characters to the magical world and the time period. This didn't feel at all like a YA, maybe because both leads Iolanthe Seabourne ...
