From Shadow and Silence

If I fall, the world will burn—but if I don’t, the cost will be too much: Easton. 

The end of the centuries-long war is almost here, and the fate of the realm rests on my shoulders. The Gray has gathered his forces—and has me captive.

The enemy’s plan to control the kingdoms has been revealed, but traitors from both sides might alter the course of fate.

I must return to Easton and the others before all is lost.  Battle lines must be forged, and surprising alliances cast.  The prophecy has never altered, and life comes at an ultimate price.

Not all who fight will survive, but in the end, it will come down to a choice.

My life. Easton’s. Or a realm forgotten.


From Shadow and Silence is the epic conclusion to the Elements of Five series and DOES have an HEA like all of Carrie Ann’s series.


From Spirit and Binding

I thought I had a purpose—only now I fear it is losing those I love the most.

In my quest to unlock four of my five elements, I have watched those I love fade into ash and ruin. Bearing the weight of soul-crushing loss, my friends and I must try to regroup and journey back to the only home I have left—the Obscurité Court.

With the future uncertain, and the one person who could help my control my new powers missing, I’ve never felt more lost.

The King of Lumière wants revenge for his lost brother, and I stand in his way. With a missing king, a lost prince, and a few unexpected allies, I will have to battle more than one enemy as the darkness wraps its claws in my future…and in my heart.

From Flame and Ash

I lost my past, my friends, and even my connections to both worlds when I found out I was from the wrong realm.

Now I must put that aside and travel back to the kingdoms to continue my training as the Spirit Priestess.

Only my journey isn’t to Rhodes and those I fought alongside before.

This time, Easton and the other Obscurité warriors will stand by my side as I try to unlock my final three elements.

A Seer’s wish and the calling of the Lumière kingdom calls me forth, thrusting me into another journey where I must trust those on both sides of the age-old war to survive…and keep those I love safe.

From Breath and Ruin

I thought I was human. Then my crush shows me a new world. One I must save.

It is said the Spirit Priestess will one day unite the two Kingdoms of the Maison Realm. She will one day fight alongside Wielders and unlock the five elements of power.

It wasn’t until I nearly died that I realized they were talking about me. They tell me I have the power to save the world, and yet the war raging around me seems insurmountable. I must rely on those I thought shunned me long ago: a boy who isn’t who I thought, and a new realm of warriors who have come to protect me.

The darkness is coming, and the Queen of Obscurité wants to ensure that the King of Lumière can’t get his hands on me. And to make that happen, the Queen will sacrifice anything—including me.
