Fire's Love
(Elemental #1)

Kira thought she was leaving her demons behind when she left for college. She quickly discovers demons are everywhere, and can be good or evil. Not only are they real, but they’re protecting her; that is, except for the ones who want her dead.

Kira's parents want to reveal things about who she is, but a strange phenomenon prevents them from explaining. Before they can try again, her mother and brother die and her father disappears. Afterward, Kira finds a mysterious book in her parents‘ belongings. Although the book confuses her, it comforts her too. She's sure it holds the answers she seeks.

One of Kira’s new friends, Lowell Hew, is also an earth demon named Ulric the Wolf Thief. Lowell tries to help Kira solve the mysteries involving the book, her parents, and the elements they wanted her to know. Although Lowell has a crush on Kira, he’s not looking for a relationship, or so he keeps telling himself.

Meanwhile, Lowell introduces Kira to his best friend, Pyre, a fire demon with a fiery temperament and a troubled past. Pyre closed off his heart years ago, while deep inside he yearned to belong. For Pyre, learning to love again comes with tremendous risk, especially when the girl he loves is human, and his best friend has thoughts of his own.

Things go well until an eerie presence threatens Kira and her new friends, and they can only speculate as to who it may be. While her friends protect her and try to uncover the enemy’s identity, Kira must adjust to the challenges of being human with demon friends. Will she bask in the warmth, or be consumed by the flames of Fire’s Love?



Fire's Love is the first book in the Elemental series.

Alex Carey (AlexECarey) | 62 comments Welcome to Brain to Books CyberCon 2017 hosted by Angela B Chrysler!

My series is the Elemental Series, a planned five-book series which will follow the adventures of Kira Phoenix as she goes to college, encounters demons, confronts evil and finds love.

The demons in the Elemental Series are not Biblical demons. They're more like humans with super powers and can be good or evil.

The books in the series can stand alone, but do refer to people and events in the previous books. You will enjoy reading the book on it's own, but may miss the full meaning if you haven't read them in order.

The books are family friendly and appropriate for most ages.

Alex Carey (AlexECarey) | 62 comments Earth's Embrace (Elemental #2) by Alex E. Carey Earth's Embrace is the second novel in the series and is currently on sale for $1.99 for the e-book, and is also available in paperback and hardcover. In Earth’s Embrace, Kira discovers she has some powers of her own. Being in love with a demon makes her life even more interesting.

Earth’s Embrace was named as a finalist in the 2016 Chanticleer Book Reviews & Media Young Adult Awards Competition. The book was also named a finalist and received an Honorable Mention in the 2015 Chanticleer Book Reviews & Media Paranormal Awards Competition.

In the Writer’s Digest 23rd Annual Self-Published Book Awards Competition, Earth’s Embrace received 5’s (5 being the best) in three categories - Character Appeal and Development, Voice and Writing Style, and Plot and Story Appeal.

The Judge’s Commentary:
Carey puts a human form on the elements of nature in her latest book Earth’s Embrace...
Characters are dynamic and compelling. Rehashing from the previous book done in an engaging way. Good job on the cover! Thank you for the privilege of reading your book! And bravo on all your hard work!

Mini Blurb:
Kira's journey to uncover who she really is continues. As she tries to figure out the truth behind the lies and uncover the secrets, an old friend returns looking for blood. Kira's worries for her boyfriend Pyre, a fire demon, have only begun as she struggles to understand the changes within herself. Will she be able to overcome the harsh reality or will she be crushed by the Earth's Embrace?

Alex Carey (AlexECarey) | 62 comments Water's Reflection (Elemental #3) by Alex E. Carey Water's Reflection is the third book in the Elemental Series and is currently on sale for $2.99 for the e-book. It is also available in paperback and hardcover at most online and physical store retailers.

The manuscript in progress of Water’s Reflection was named a finalist in the 2015 Chanticleer Book Reviews & Media Paranormal Awards Competition. Water’s Reflection was named a finalist in the 2016 Chanticleer Book Reviews & Media Young Adult Awards Competition.

In the Writer’s Digest 24th Annual Self-Published Book Awards Competition, Water’s Reflection received 5’s (5 being the best) in three categories - Character Appeal and Development, Voice and Writing Style, and Plot and Story Appeal.

The Judge’s Commentary Highlights:
Carey gets quickly into her story with an engaging introduction of young heroine Kira. The strength of the book resides in Kira, who remains a force throughout. The writing establishes and maintains a strong emotional connection with Kira, showcasing some interesting worldbuilding, too. The magic in Water’s Reflection feels plausible and is the lynchpin holding the fantasy together. The writing—the stuff that reveals talent (which can’t be taught, as opposed to craft, which can be)—is quite good: readable, active, and engaging.

Mini Blurb:
The tides change for Kira, as her life and powers become more dangerous. Pyre, a fire demon and Kira’s boyfriend, confronts his own past, but a new foe may cause him to lose everything. Lowell, a wolf demon and their friend, must forgive himself for his past love’s death or lose his new love. Will they survive or will they drown in the Water's Reflection?
