"Master storyteller Sharon Shinn created the thrilling and enchanting world of Welce in her acclaimed novel Troubled Waters. Return with her to that elemental universe in this tale of secrecy, romance, and a battle for power. Josetta is a princess of one of the Five Families. But she is far from the throne, so she is free to spend her days working in the poorest sections of the city. Rafe Adova, an outcast since he was born, lives the life of a career gambler in those slums. He has no ambition other than cheating at the card tables--until the night he decides to help a girl named Corene, who looks like she's stumbled into the wrong bar. She, too, is a princess--sister to Josetta, who finds her with Rafe. He fascinates her. Josetta has never encountered anyone like him--someone seemingly devoid of elemental blessings. He is drawn to her, though he thinks they are unlikely to ever meet again--but their connection grows strong when she nurses him back to health after he is assaulted by foreign mercenaries. And when they learn the reason he's being hunted, they know that the truth about his history could endanger not only their love but also their very lives"--… (mehr)

I love a good fantasy adventure romance, and Sharon Shinn never fails to draw me in. So glad to see another book in this series, as I enjoyed Troubled Waters very much as well. Really delighted by the mingling of tech and elemental powers and with the weird, clever court intricacies.

Excellent sequel, centering more on the princesses of Welce but still with Zoe as a participant in the story. Josetta's story has more focus and is rounded out by the mysterious Rafe Adova, living as a career gambler. Corene has several scenes and starts to develop from the bratty, sad little sister. ( )

While this book isn't quite as entertaining as the first in the series, I still really enjoyed this one. Shinn continues to develop this world in fun and interesting ways. ( )

Josetta is the oldest princess but the third in line to the throne of Welce. Relieved to be so far out of the line of succession, she spends her days running a homeless shelter in the slums. Rafe is a professional gambler in the slums living on his wits and luck. They meet when Rafe rescues Josetta's sister from a bad situation.

I love the world-building in this book, from the blessings and magic system to the elaymotives and Industrial Revolution setting. And though Josetta found politics a dead bore, I also loved the political intrigue and maneuvering going on at court. ( )

This second book in the Elemental Blessings series is as engaging as the first, Troubled Waters. A princess no longer, Josetta has been spending her time helping the poor in a seedy area of town. But when her sister visits and is harassed by ruffians, gambler Rafe Adova intervenes. From then on, fate pits Josetta and Rafe together. Their destinies are entwined in a way neither could have foreseen, involving foreign mercenaries, visiting royalty, and cunning politicians. Can they escape unscathed when assassins are bent on Rafe’s murder? What secrets lie buried in his background to make him a target? To protect him, Josetta has to stick close, and it’s not a hardship for the young noblewoman who develops a fondness for him. But to keep him alive might be more of a challenge. Excellent world building makes you eager for more in this saga. ( )
