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!

Great read

Wonderful storyline! Good Elementals vs. Bad Elementals. All having various powers of water, air, fire, earth and spirit. Some even having the ability to alter their appearance. I could not put this book down due the fact I wanted to see what was going to happen next. I am highly anticipating the next book in this series.

Six months after the war that broke the Church of the Four Orders and freed the other temples from Solaire's control. But the scars remain. Two events, both innocuous and seemingly innocent, spark off a new conflict. When Zhao, an air elemental, returns home to visit his sister. His people fear elementals. Zhao had been kept confined to a shrine, quarantined from his people. When he arrives now that the war is over and elementals should be free, he discovers his new niece is an elemental and the chief of his tribe looks to inflict the same punishment. With his friend Laisseg, he rescues his sister and niece. And sparks off a war between neighboring people. As the war spirals out of control, Zhao seeks help from his friends, pulling Ria from her search for the escaped Sinika, the villain responsible for the war and held as a prisoner for the last six month until his supporters freed him. Meanwhile, Lavinia and her husband Darag have finished their pilgrimage to all the temples to allow Lavinia to touch all the spheres and use all the elements. Wanting to fulfill a promise to the Ashanti Jeif and Leifa, they visit the short-lived and mysterious Ashanti. Their message sparks off a chain of events that could forever change the world. War has returned, but an even great threat looms and the survivors of the last war will have to reunite to stop the new threats to their world. Sparks of Defiance (and the Game of Fire series) is a sequel to her Rise of the Five Orders series. It was great to return to her world and see old characters. The war haunts the characters, particularly the death of Beite. She does an excellent job reworking reminders of the previous plot without exposition dumps. The plot moves fast, keeping you reading. Autumn ratchets up the tension as the book builds to its climax. All your favorite characters that survived the last series are once again in peril. I was on the edge of my seat through the climax. Sparks of Defiance is a great start to another amazing Fantasy series from Autumn. If you enjoy great, fast-paced fantasy, then you'll enjoy Autumn's Rise of the Five Orders series and the start to Game of Fire. I am eager for Book 2 to be released. I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review, though I had planned on buying it before the author sent it to me and have preordered it.
