A Harmony of Fire and Earth is out in the world today, and I'm so excited (and, as always, anxious) for you to read it. I'm a little sad too. This book marks the end of the the Elemental Magicae duology, and I didn't realize how bittersweet it would be to see it end. I love these characters and this world. The first book, A Dance of Water and Air, got me writing again during a tough, stressful time. I fell in love with Arden and Edmund and their friends and family, and I did the same with Rhys and Gaz in Harmony. I'm happy with where I've left them all, but I hate to let them go. I might return to this world one day and write another story. For now, though, it's time these characters get their happily ever afters.
The two couples in Harmony are made up of characters who are demisexual, bisexual, gay, and trans, and there's a supporting character who's asexual. Harmony picks up right where Dance left off, and I do think it's best to read them in order. Dance ends with Edmund and Arden, two princes who had to flee danger and did all they could to be together and keep their countries out of war, trying to find a way to protect their home from the real enemy and dealing with a shocking revelation—the day before their wedding. In Harmony, they get that wedding and more of the after the happily ever after as they continue to work to save their kingdom. We also meet Rhys, an Earth wielder, and Gaz, a Fire wielder with a big secret, and follow them as they find their way to HEA (that's not a spoiler—my books guarantee HEA!). They'll deal with magic and intrigue and danger, and also find love and family and acceptance. I hope you enjoy the journey with them.
About A Harmony of Fire and Earth:
Prince Edmund of Thalassa and Prince Arden of Aither are eagerly anticipating their upcoming wedding, but the danger to their kingdom hasn’t lessened. They have a plan, but they won’t be able to carry it out alone: they need a strong wielder of each Element, whom they can trust implicitly, to carry out the magic.
Rhys is a commoner and wielder of Earth magic. He and his sister have made a living from the use of their magic for years and have become highly respected in scholarly circles, though he prefers a more simple life with his plants. When a message from Prince Arden reaches them asking for their help, they don’t hesitate. They stop only to request that Gaz, a strong Fire wielder and the man Rhys has long been enamored of, accompany them on the journey to Thalassa’s royal palace.
What no one knows is that Gaz was once known as Prince Gareth of Thalassa and is Edmund’s younger brother, long believed dead. He fled his home after his Fire Affinity made itself known and put him in danger, and he had no intention of ever going back. But he can’t keep himself from going to his brother’s aid, despite the risk of discovery and of the weight of his secrets potentially crushing his fledgling relationship with Rhys.
Working against time, they must find a way to come together in a magical working the likes of which none of them has ever imagined, or their homelands will surely burn.
