"You and I have a lot more in common than you would like to admit," he grins. "How could we have anything in common?" I snarl - my swords raised. "We both end lives," the God of Death answers. *** In a world of gods, everyone from Vangeryk, realm of gifters, can gift one of the four elements. The brutal royals of this realm can gift all four. Now meet Maura Conium, a first born royal and also the only person that cannot gift a single element. Cast out since she was three, Maura was sent to train in the art of fists and swords until she would turn nineteen to become worthy of her throne. The time has finally come for her to claim her birthright, but with politics, Maura's lack of gifting and an annoying God of Death, it's not so easy. And when a drunk Prince and particularly up tight air gifter are looking to recruit Maura in their quest to stop a growing evil, Maura must choose between her throne and saving the world. *** "To the Gods, it's all just a game..." "Now let's show them how to play."
"I didn't ask to be in the middle of your ego-battle," I grumble. Blake pins me to my locker, hands resting on either side of my head. "Well, you got it in anyway, Darling," he whispers. His face is inches away from mine and damn me for licking my lips. I am NOT falling for these guys. And then, at the corner of my eye I spot Owen and his gang approaching. Well, that's just great. *** The West and East gang of Tygerwell have been at each other's throats since the dawn of time. And the two leaders of these gangs want to end the fight, once and for all. But fighting with fists is easy. Fighting with wit and charm, is a whole other ball game. Blake. West-side gang leader. Leather jacket and killer glare. Don't talk back. Owen. East-side gang leader. Fancy coat and toxic stare. Don't resist. And in comes Amber. Hair of gold and oceans in her eyes. Has paint on everything she wears and always, ALWAYS, manages to get into the middle of trouble. "She's a golden storm" But these bad boys have no idea who they're really dealing with. Amber is determined to break all the cliche's. Three can play this game.
