Publisher's Summary

Sasha has always known she was different, but now she also knows that the shadow men she's seen all her life, are real.

With a life goal of fitting in, Sasha hopes her strange abilities will finally make true friendship a possibility. Unfortunately, her magic doesn't function like everyone else's. What she thought would make her belong, sets her apart now more than ever.

Stefan, all but promised to a different woman, has tried to keep his mind on his duties instead of the irresistible and free-spirited human. But when she is threatened, he can't keep his distance anymore. He'll stop at nothing to keep her safe, and more importantly, make her his.

Just when one thing clicks into place, another spirals out of control. Stefan's clan isn't the only group that would benefit from an extremely rare type of magic. And their enemies will stop at nothing to get what they want.

The first book in this series, Into the Darkness, is free.

Book 2

Any additional comments?

Great second book. The storyline delves into enhancing Stefan & Sasha's relationship with a twist of betrayal. The main character's plight to emotionally deal with the changes and now bullying keeps the reader engaged. I couldn't help laughing out loud several times! Please complete the series in Audible format!

Another Great Listen

Would you listen to Braving the Elements again? Why?

Like the first book I really enjoyed listening to it the second time around after reading it last year. I would definitely buy the rest of the series to continue my re-read.

What other book might you compare Braving the Elements to and why?

I think I would recommend this story to people who enjoy Elemental Assassin, Night Huntress, The Hollows

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I'm glad Stephen finally let his primal side take over.

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to the rest of the series!

a roaring Adventure

the action really picks up and the second book in this series almost felt like I was the characters that were described in the book caffeine really knows how to put together a story that draws you into the narration

It's better at a 1.25 x speed

What did you love best about Braving the Elements?

Like the first four books of the series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Braving the Elements?

The giant planet onslaught in the classroom

Which character – as performed by Devra Woodward – was your favorite?

Her professor "meh" one. And the bouch in the white cap. Maybe even Charles.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A comical, disfunctional human with a magical personality.

Any additional comments?

This series, I've discovered just recently, is better when it's on the 1.25x speed increase. The first book I found to be dragging. The narrator just narrates really slow. But perblem solved. Just increase the speed of the audible and it's actually perfect.

We need the next book in audio NOW!!!!

This series just keeps getting better. We are learning more about how magic works, the rivalry between the species, their way of thinking and getting to laugh at Sasha’s antics! We see more of the responsibility that lies on Stephan’s big shoulders and why he keeps his stern composure. We get more of the heat and fire between the two and get to seriously laugh at Charles in all his child like glory! Then of course is the action, fight scenes and smoking hot sex!

What a ride!

Okay, just when you think Stefan and Sasha are making some kind of headway, all hell breaks loose and the ants scatter. Lol!

Watching Sasha and Charles go through school is not only funny, but it’s a lot of crazy all wrapped up on a weirdly knitted scarf, courtesy of Charles.

I liked this story. It was a good progression from the start to this level. Stefan made a choice, one I fully support. I love Sasha!
