Book Summary:
Publication Date: January 5th, 2015
The elders chose Elli to be queen, but they chose wrong in this beautifully crafted novel in the tradition of Kristin Cashore and Victoria Aveyard.

Sixteen-year-old Elli was a small child when the Elders of Kupari chose her to succeed the Valtia, the queen who wields infinitely powerful ice and fire magic. Since then, Elli has lived in the temple, surrounded by luxury and tutored by priests, as she prepares for the day when the Valtia perishes and the magic finds a new home in her. Elli is destined to be the most powerful Valtia to ever rule.

But when the queen dies defending the kingdom from invading warriors, the magic doesn’t enter Elli. It’s nowhere to be found.

Disgraced, Elli flees to the outlands, the home of banished criminals—some who would love to see the temple burn with all its priests inside. As she finds her footing in this new world, Elli uncovers devastating new information about the Kupari magic, those who wield it, and the prophecy that foretold her destiny. Torn between the love she has for her people and her growing loyalty to the banished, Elli struggles to understand the true role she was meant to play. But as war looms, she must align with the right side—before the kingdom and its magic are completely destroyed.

  1. I'd love to be able to control fire! Get my feet and fingers nice and toasty during the winter months :P
    Thanks for the giveaway! I've been eyeing this book for a long while!

  2. I'd totally be the Ice Queen! It'd be cool to have both, but I'm not gonna get greedy. This is one of my wish list books, and I freaking love the cover!

  3. Hmmm...Initially I was going to say Ice, but it seems that when given the opportunity in games, I chose fire. So I will say "FIRE"

  4. I will always choose Fire when the choice is between Ice and Fire. Fire melts Ice, and you can burn and destroy your enemies.

  5. I will always choose Fire when the choice is between Ice and Fire. Fire melts Ice, and you can burn and destroy your enemies.

  6. I will choose water because it's a universal solvent and unlike fire, less destructive.
