Threats of Sky and Sea (Elementals: The Threats of Sky and Sea #1) by Jennifer Ellision
Sixteen year-old Breena Perdit has spent her life as a barmaid, innocent to her father’s past and happily free from the Elemental gifts that would condemn her to a life in the Egrian King’s army. Until the day that three Elemental soldiers recognize her father as a traitor to the throne and Bree’s father is thrown in jail—along with the secrets from his last mission as the King’s assassin. Secrets that could help the King win a war. Secrets he refuses to share.
Desperate to escape before the King’s capricious whims prove her and her father’s downfall, Bree bargains with him: information for their lives. It’s a good trade. And she has faith she’ll get them both out of the King’s grasp with time.
But that was before the discovery that she’s the weapon the King’s been waiting for in his war.
Now, time is running out. To save her father’s life and understand her own, Bree must unravel the knot of her father’s past before the King takes his life– and uses her to bring a nation to its knees.
Threats of Sky and Sea - Jennifer Ellison
This is a very riveting book. It pulled me in quickly and kept me there.
I like the characters. They are well-developed. I could feel their emotions strongly.
The setting is well-defined and easy to visualize. The story flowed well from chapter to chapter. The only thing I would have liked better would have been more of the story.
The cover of the book and the title are perfect fit for the story.
I give this book a literary rating of 5/5

Jennifer Ellision was born and raised in South Florida and lives in perpetual fear of temperatures below 60F. She spent a great deal of her childhood staying up past her bedtime with a book and a flashlight. When she couldn't find the stories she wanted to read, she started writing them.
She has an OTP, loves character analysis, and is a master of the fangirl flail, with a particular soft spot for fanfiction. She frequently bursts into song (and they are often of a Disney persuasion). Sailor Moon is one of her favorite things on this planet. If you make her any kind of fanart, she'll love you forever.
