A NOBLE DAUGHTER. A FORMER SLAVE. SCORCHED EARTH AND DANGEROUS GAMES. “Jura imagined it sounded like rain.” Juggling death is nothing new for seventeen-year-old Jura, daughter of the First of the Thirteen, successive rulers of the Republic of the Sand Sea. However, when a blood chain ensnares her father, she is thrust into the seat of power and forced to rule her elders. “To Tylak, water had never tasted sweeter.” Jura must track down her father’s assassin and balance a country on the verge of collapse. To find the Prince of Shadows and uncover the truth, Jura puts her trust in Tylak, a former slave accused of stealing from the Everflame—a man she once condemned to death. In a world where water is currency and enemies lurk around every corner, Jura will use her wits or risk igniting a world war.

Politics and Dragons

The Republic is located in the desert and is ruled by the Thirteen. When Jura discovers a blood chain on her dad's wrist, she must protect him from himself. The owner of the blood chain can make her dad do anything they want, and as the First of the Thirteen, this could be very dangerous. For this reason, she must temporarily detain him and take his place.

The first time Jura meets Tylak, it's to sentence him to death for the crime of stealing fire from the Everflame. However, Tylak may be Jura's only hope of saving her father. As Jura gets swept away into the politics, she is bound to suffer from the betrayal and secrets that come along with it.

While Jura was the main character, there were a lot of other POVs that I thought were unnecessary. Going back and forth with so many was jolting and took from the action. I do love Kay though and the fiery personality that resides within her. She could've had her own book. I love the dragon aspect and that water is a currency. I also like the fantasy and fire "breathing" elements in IGNITED. It brought excitement to the story and I'm curious to see what the second installment holds.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of elementals, alternating POVs, politics, fantasy, dragons, and mystery.
