The Mortal Fires (Undercover Elementals #2)


Lindsey Porter isn’t just a mere mortal; she has been gifted with powers even she isn’t aware of…yet. She destroyed a sylph king and was granted powers beyond her imagination. She is also in love with Nevan, who is now the reigning sylph king, and there are a lot of supernaturals who aren’t happy with the fact that a mortal might someday be queen. When young women who bear an uncanny resemblance to her start turning up dead, not only is she in danger but so is the one who holds her heart. She and Nevan must work together to find out who is trying to destroy Nevan and steal her powers. When Nevan is near death, Lindsey must rely on those closest to her to help her discover the extremely powerful entity who is slowly destroying her soulmate.

Sylphs, oracles, fae witches and more…oh my! “The Mortal Fires” is book 2 in the Undercover Elemental series and stands well on its own. A few things might be clearer having read the first, but it’s not necessary. This is a heavily character-driven story, maybe a few too many characters to keep track of. One of the side characters, Max, steals a lot of the story with his lovable antics. The world building is wonderful and Ms. Durand has a vivid imagination, one that will suck the reader right in and make them feel a part of that world. Sit back, relax and enjoy the undercover elemental’s world.
