|Plot Summary of Competitions|
|"Tamrissa, Jovvi, Lorand, Rion, and Vallant begin their competitions to achieve their masters standings and their right to form a Blending. Rather repetitive, all characters have same perceptions and observations. Second book in the Blending series."
Christine G., Resident Scholar
|"A group of five individuals with strong magical talents in the aspects of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit are thrown together into a situation that's way beyond their control. They have to do their best to survive just so they can try to unravel-slowly-each piece of the mysteries about their magical talents, working against the nobility who are trying to keep them in the dark while using them for their own plans at the same time."
Ally, Resident Scholar
