Start your review of Fate of Elements (Skeleton Key)
Aimsir, the world of Elements, was a good addition to Skeleton Key series. It intrigued me but it wasn't able to overcome its two great flaws—first, huge predictability and second, it seemed like no one there was willing to think for himself/herself and stop depending on the prophecy and the "god".

This was such a great story. I'm not usually a paranormal or fantasy reader but I really enjoyed this one. It had a little bit of everything. It was interesting to see all the different personalities that went along with the different elements. I am partial to Dayna, though! She is pretty awesome! It's definitely an interesting concept and I enjoyed going on the journey with Raina.

I really enjoyed this novella. I read it in one day, because I couldn’t get enough. The world is beautifully written. M. Stratton has brought Aimsir to life in this story and I really loved it.

The characters and magic in this story were very unique and compelling. I absolutely loved reading about them.

Overall, I recommend checking this one out. It’s a fun novella with a beautiful world.

I'm normally not a fan of paranormal books but I always love then when the author is M Stratton
The fight between Raina and Dayna was epic and the chemistry between Raina and Hallet was felt from the beginning
I think what I lived most, the cover depicted the story perfectly
Another great read from M Stratton

One word came to me quickly when I finished this book ...WOW! This is another book in the skeleton key series and I am just blown away with the creativity! Another unique storyline built around a key that transports the characters to a different realm and each realm is just amazing! There is heartbreak in this story, yet the writer still manages to pull off a very satisfying HEA. Great job!!!!

A magical world where the elements rule is a great place to create a story! M. Stratton did an amazing job with this novella! I loved how she incorporated a character that is such a book lover and knows how to create her own world. Her imagination of the books leads her to find a magical world through her uncle's house. Just the detail M. Stratton used is amazing!

Reading this book pulled me into its world. It was so bright and vivid. I really am enjoying this skeleton key series. Each book is so dire rent from the other and each have a way to pull you in. Can't wait to read more.

The prophecy states a god will come through the Skeleton Door and unite the elements: Air, Earth, Fire, and Water. There will be a battle, but in the end, the elements will unite.

Hallet, King of the Fire Element, has been trying to warn the others the prophecy is coming true, and they must unite because they don't know what's on the other side of the door. The other king and queens are willing to do whatever it takes to protect their people. The only problem is the unknown...

Sometimes fate has already written our lives before we are born. Sometimes it takes a while for us to figure out our true destiny, cards are dealt good and bad but what is to come of a true warrior when she has lived her life in the clouds and her nose always in a book? Well the most epic fantasy story written

Elemental paranormal adventure. Rania was the book reader. Never guessing that adventure would ever come to her door. Not until the day she inherits a house. A house with a key to a door that she very much wants to open. Behind that door will be more than just a fantasy adventure trapped on the pages of her books. She will live the adventure.

Stratton created a beautiful world filled with intrigue behind the elements and the magic/power they held. The was a novell

I have a love/hate with paranormal reads. Some stories are just really hard to get through.

Now, Fate of Elements started out slow but it stayed steady without going overboard in descriptions. This is one of the many stories that blend into each authors stories of the Skeleton Series.
This is the story of the elements that make
But one woman holds the key to save everyone. The problem is, she doesn't know she holds the power to either save or destroy.

Really loving all the skeleton key series books. I liked how the elements where the key characters and how another element was suppose to come thru the skeleton key door either good or evil. The elements were suppose to come together and live in harmony but Dayna the earth element wanted all control but Raina couldn't let that help especially having Hallet by her side . Really great book and can't wait to read the next book in the skeleton key series

A Wonderful addition to the Skeleton Key Series!
This is the story of the elements...Water, Fire, Air, Land and Sea and a girl who walked thru a door and changed their world. Loved the paranormal twist to this book, along with the characters. The lies, decent and mistrust of the "brothers and sisters" weaves a great tale.
A must read in my opinion!

This was a very light and charming story. I liked that the author didn't get hung up on too many descriptions, just enough to get you there and then continues with the story. I liked how the author developed her skeleton key vision, there have been so many stories regarding the skeleton key and I found this one to be a refreshing read.

This story was so good. I live stories with the elements in them. This author did a great job of putting the story together. The characters were great and almost believably real lol.
