Has anyone found the other 3 books dealing with the Elemental ones?  The one of London has been out quite

awhile.  But, alas, no other 3 before.  I also enjoy the Chrome series with the Awesome cars that have NO motors.

I have all of them.  LOL  But then again I have all of Mercedes lackey books on my keeper shelves.  so are you talking about these?

Elemental Masters Fire Rose, The Gates of Sleep Serpent's Shadow, The Phoenyx And Ashes Wizard of London

 

Reserved for the Cat is the newest in the series and it's due out October 30.

 

What I find funny is that Fire Rose is listed as the first book in the series and I can see why she chose to do that but the mythos of the Elemental world really didn't get explained until Gates of Sleep.  I personally think she wrote it as a stand alone and then liked the world so much she started a series.

 

I like the 500 kingdoms books as well and they remind me of the elemental world a lot.

I first read her in the Herald series. That was enough to open your eyes.

The  Fire Rose was on sale in Denver, Co in a little book store across from where we were getting our RV repaired- so all of us readers- (my S-I-L, 2 Nieces,  and myself) walked across the street  and the husband of the owner was angry at her- so while she was at a book fair in Chicago- He went through her PERSONAL- DO NOT TOUCH- OR DIE___ shelf and put them out as used. For the sum of $.25.

I talked to him a little while and it turned out we had both just finished to Winston Churchill Auto and WOW--- He said take the

whole bunch of over 125 books for $10.00. Let me tell you I got the Chrome series and the Elf group in hardback. All in all- I got 12 of her books and am still hooked.

Problem- We stowed the books in every crook and craney in the RV- It was a 34 foot self-contained and we were on a 2 week trip all over the West. Our husbands got angry that we wouldn't take turns driving because we read.

I can truly say I had not read books like ths before. There just aren't enough of her books out there. Know any more awesome

writers like her??

 

Take care.

This is all I can find on it.  I never read the blurbs since she's an auto buy for me.  LOL

 

In 1910, in an alternate London, a penniless young dancer is visited by a cat who communicates with her mind to mind. Though she is certain she must be going mad, she is desperate enough to follow the cat's advice and impersonates a famous Russian ballerina. The cat, it turns out, is actually an Elemental Earth Spirit, and leads her to minor stardom. Meanwhile, the real Russian ballerina has fallen victim to an evil troll who takes over her body and kills her patrons, drinking their life essences in order to strengthen his powers. And soon, the troll focuses his dark attentions on the young dancer...
