In a world where men and women teleport using air, dirt, and water....
Kidnapped as an infant, Hakon is raised by the earth-empowered Terra people. Considered less than beasts, the clawed-hand warriors plot revenge against the air-empowered Alem that invaded their land centuries before.
Hakon grows up with the knowledge that he is an Alem prince, tempered by the love he feels for the family that raised him.
While Hakon tries to find peace between two warring peoples, his sister Kara rises from the hidden role of handmaid to the public role of princess. All she knows has changed, especially her relationships with those she once considered friends.
Both Kara and Hakon must find a way to bring peace to the violent struggles over the land before everything they've ever loved is burned to the ground in front of them.

Not the most impressive, but still entertaining.
I had a few issues with this book. The first was the terminology for some of the magic, that they call zipping and vanishing. Some parts of the book seemed rushed as well, and the logic of some of the characters are confusing. This is a short book even though it is supposed to be three in one volume. You will most likely guess the ending well before the end of the book as well.
The narration is alright. The narrator does not use different tones of voices or anything, so it sounds off when someone "rasps" something or speaks with an accent. She has a pleasant voice to listen to so I still gave her four stars.
I will not listen to this again. Not that it was really bad, but it was really simple, and not complex enough to hold my attention.

Over All great, but
It has some points to work on. My main issue became the fact that much of the book is from a male characters perspective. But the female narrator had a hard time doing a male voice. It took me a while to get used to it.
Story wise I loved the world it took place in. But the plot felt a bit rushed at times. I primarily felt this with how frequently large chunks of time passed. A journey across the land feels over before it has begun. I often found myself second guessing if the characters journey/training/mission was actually over or not because it would just suddenly be at it's end.
Otherwise I really enjoyed the books. Despite using a well known theme of people controlling the elements as part of their race, the author really made this theme their own. I don't think I could accurately compare it to anything else that has used the theme before. .
I would actually really enjoy seeing a book that touches on some of the lesser seen parts of the series. The extinct fire porters. The unseen homeland of the air people. The original war that started the mess that is being resolved in this series. All would be great to see more of in a partner series.
