    One of my new favorites!

    I just turned to the last page of Recurve, and I'm in awe of Shannon's world-building abilities. Rich details built a mental image piece by piece until I felt as though I were standing in the redwood forest watching Larkspur as she fought to preserve not only her home but those she loves as well. Lark's innate ability to love her family and fight for them, despite their indifference and lack of acceptance, shows in her a capacity for being a hero. Their cruel titles of "Useless" and "Cuckoo" might be painful, but she rises to the challenge when others might've walked away or taken the easier path. Lark must really push beyond the barriers to find the powers Cassava blocked from her long ago before it's too late, and without the support of a family, she must find her own confidence and learn to fight and defend not only herself but those who shun her. From the moment I read the first chapter, I was completely hooked and wanted to fly through each page until the end. This series is worth rereading, and I'm so excited to move onto the next.

    A great paranormal story with nature theme.

    “My name is Larkspur, and I am an Elemental.” My people use the power of the earth to sustain life and defy our enemies. I should be at my father's side as a royal princess. But as a half-breed, bastard child, that isn't going to happen. ------------------------------------ Knowing that I love Shannon's Rylee Adamson series, I took a chance and pre-ordered this book - which I seldom do. I am oh-so-glad I did! The plot and characters kept me involved throughout the story, and when Lark's true traitor is revealed I was surprised! If you enjoy Faith Hunter, Patricia Briggs, or Jennifer Estep you won't want to skip this series!

    4.5 I was provided this ARC copy by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Where to even start...we first meet Larkspur in Elementally Priceless in the Rylee Adamson Novel Series, when she first met a young Rylee on her first savage. I feel in love with her character right then and there when she risked all to help a young girl who wanted to prove she could do things on her own but still needed a bit of help. So when I heard that Mrs. Mayer would be giving Lark her own series I was thrilled. We start from the very beginning with Lark. We see her tragedies and triumphs and we feel her pain as if it were our own. Lark has been accused of something she hasn't done and the only thing she can do is accept banishment or become a guardian to the king (her father). Even though technically Lark is a princess she isn't treated like one by many and she is seen as useless. But there is so much more to Lark than anyone knows including herself. There are a few secrets and lies and sometimes you just want to shake a character or two. I was left wanting the next part right after I finished the last page of Recurve and I believe this series will be as successful than the Rylee series. The only issue I had with the story was there was more tell than show. Meaning Lark would overcome something and say "I couldn't possibly get worse" and instead of ending it right there, Lark would say "I was wrong". I would have rather saw she was wrong then to be told beforehand that she was going to be wrong (if that makes sense). All in all this was a wonderful start to a brand new series.
