Guess what!
Water Princess, Fire Prince releases today! *cue cheers, confetti, and other fanfare*

When the Lady Dragon does come,
Hold fast, do not fear, do not run.
Your Water Princess will fight,
Fire Prince will set all to right.
Each shall come from a Fall,
Their union will save you all.
      Despite the fact that she's on track for competing in the Olympics, and he's practically raised his younger brothers since they lost their mom in a car accident, Clara Mandras and Andrew Stevenson are pretty much normal teens. They have normal hopes, normal dreams, and they live in a normal world.
      All this is torn away from them when they are thrust into another world and declared Water Princess and Fire Prince. With no experience ruling a country, meeting each other for the first time, and being expected to fight the Lady Dragon – an evil sorceress plaguing the world of Rizkaland – Clara and Andrew are underprepared and inexperienced. Unless they learn to work together despite their …

My Review:
(Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.) I loved this sweet novella! Having already read the Hymns of the West series, I really enjoyed this glimpse into the lives of a few minor characters. And speaking of characters, I especially loved Cole's nieces and nephews. Some of my favorite scenes were the ones where Rhoda is talking to, and taking care of them.
And of course, the romance! It was really nice to watch the friendship betwee…
