Shalia is a proud daughter of the desert, but after years of devastating war with the adjoining kingdom, her people are desperate for peace. Willing to trade her freedom to ensure the safety of her family, Shalia becomes Queen of the Bonelands.

But she soon learns that her husband, Calix, is motivated only by his desire to exterminate the Elementae--mystical people who can control earth, wind, air, and fire. Even more unsettling are Shalia’s feelings for her husband’s brother, which unleash a power over the earth she never knew she possessed--a power that could get her killed. As rumors of a rebellion against Calix spread, Shalia must choose between the last chance for peace and her own future as an Elementae.

This intense, richly drawn high-fantasy by the author of Scarlet will hold readers spellbound.

My thoughts:  That COVER. Gorgeous. Drool. Starry-eyes.  Now onto that story! I haven't read this author before but I know plenty who loved the Scarlet series. And I love Elemental stories, so there's that :)  The only thing I side-eye in this is the possible "choice between two brothers" aspect.  I can handle a love triangle once in while, but when it's between siblings I just can't.  So here's hoping that's not a thing here.  Other than that, this sounds amazing! :D

What book are you eagerly anticipating this week?
