About the Author

Autumn (also known as Weifarer and Autumn Raven) is a travel and fiction writer currently based in Maine where she lives in a small cottage lost in the woods, which she built with her husband and with the supervision (and approval) of two Cairn terriers. With a Bachelor of Arts degree from Bucknell University in Studio Arts and English, Autumn once considered a career in illustration. However, an ecology course at Virginia Tech led to a Master of Science degree in Ecology and Environmental Sciences from the University of Maine in Orono. After graduation with her M.S., Autumn has worked for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. This was a great job that not only let her help the environment and protect local agriculture, but also gave her a paycheck big enough to support her writing habit until finally … at long last she is now a full time writer and on-line educator!

This Fantasy is a quick read, capturing the essence of Authoritarian Repression vs. Individual Freedom. I encourage those in need of a break to read this book. ... and you thought your days were hard. ; )

The powers of earth, water, fire and air will be harnessed by four friends in a land where magic is forbidden. A Former priestess of the Church will risk her own life and give up her position in order to help put an end to the Curse, a magical being whose endgame is to destroy all magic, as dictated by its creators. This is a story of adventure, discovery and even young love in a world that has turned its back on anyone who possesses magic. BORN OF WATER by Autumn Birt is just the beginning of the journey for an unlikely band of allies, unsure of the powers they wield and unaware of the potential they have. Cross a sea, run from danger and face off against danger alongside these characters as they ride a roller coaster of emotions in an unknown world. Autumn Birt has done a wonderful job of creating depth and humanity in her characters, complete with frailties and failings without resorting to over-the-top angst, off-color dialogue or adult situations. A magical start to this series! Certainly not a quick read, but one to be savored, enjoyed and to feel the same discoveries the young characters experience!

Niri is a Priestess of water that failed to identify an elemental during the festival. She wants to make amends to her order and goes on the hunt for this girl. But when she finds Ria she realizes there is more to this girl than what she originally thought. So she goes on a quest to find out the truth about Ria’s powers and her own. Lavinia and Ty are brother and sister and friends to Ria, they go along to keep Ria safe but end up learning more about themselves. But this is a race against time since the Curse has been released to hunt down Ria. But secrets about the church are going to be exposed and Niri is going to learn that although she is the weakest of the elementals she has more power in her than she knows. When elementals are discovered, they are taken away from their families and indoctrinated into the church. This is the only life Niri has known for years and at first those teachings is all that she sees. But as the story progresses she learns that there is more to the story of the church and it is not as wonderful as she has been told. Ria has this amazing power but she is scared to use it because of the Curse hunting them down. I loved watching her grow throughout the story. Ty has his own secrets and at first hates Niri. But when you learn about his apprenticeship you can understand his feelings. And then there is Lavinia. She is a young girl ready to go into her apprenticeship and along for adventure but finds her own, unconventional place in the world. This book is full of action, adventure and wonderful locations. It is very descriptive and draws the reader in. I listened to the audio book and couldn’t wait to get back to it as soon as I had to stop. Thom Bowers did a wonderful job of narrating. It was easy to follow along with each character. If you are looking for a new young adult fantasy series, this is the series for you. I strongly recommend checking out Born of Water. As for me I can’t wait to read Rule of Fire or even better listen to it on audiobook. I received Born of Water for free from the author in a giveaway.

Already bought book two. Good story, good read. But some logic errors detract.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters had depth, the plot thickened nicely; and with the exception of some grammar errors, the writing was tight. Unfortunately, it was only after reading this book and when I eagerly went to get the second book of the series that I discovered no other books by the author were available for my Nook. I will though, keep checking back to see if this terrible oversight gets corrected. Otherwise my only choice is to buy the paperback on Amazon.
