"Maybe you're not meant to manipulate fire the way I do. Maybe sparks are all you're ever going to make." He snarled, "Or maybe you just need to be a better teacher and give me more." Before I could reply, he grabbed my hand, twisted and pulled me into a restraining lock. Body pressed against my back, he held me in a chokehold. I struggled. Kicked. Fought. Pain knifed me as I tried to free myself. He spoke and his breath was hot in my ear. "Now, fire goddess let's see if I can make more than sparks." Rising panic choked me, with it came rage. And with rage, came fire. Keahi felt it. He laughed as I strained against him. As together we both burst into flame... With Nafanua and the Covenant Sisterhood out of the way, Leila and Daniel are finally able to love without fear of retribution. Or are they? As a malicious telesa plots her revenge, a mysterious stranger arrives on the island. Fuelled by hate and running from a fiery past, he looks to Leila for answers and she must fight to contain the fury of fanua-afi while trying to protect all those she loves. It seems that this is a battle she must wage alone, for Daniel's ocean birthright cannot be denied and he refuses to walk beside her. Are Leila and Daniel destined to be forever divided by the elements? When it comes to Water and Fire, daughter of earth and son of the ocean - who will endure? When water burns? This is the second book in the Telesa Trilogy and follows on from book one, 'Telesa: The Covenant Keeper.' Also available from Amazon.

Our customer reviews

So much better than the first book. The writing has developed and the pace is better. The first book seemed to take a while to get into the action, but this book delves in more quickly. I loved that the characters' backgrounds come more into play and the story lines in those are very clever. Again, the situations the characters find themselves in are very "Samoan'' and I could picture each scene vividly - always a good thing when reading a novel. Definitely looking forward to the final chapter in the series!show more
