Knight of Flame

For centuries, the Order of Knights Elementalis has protected the world from the forces of Shadow. Develor ("Dev") Quinteele, Knight of the Flame, fights an unending personal war to contain and control the power of his element, but too often falls prey to rage when he taps his fiery gift. Along with his companion Knights of Air, Water, and Earth, Dev answers a recent sortie by a member of Shadow, "business mogul" Alexander Gray, sent to establish a physical base for the coming war. When young reporter Cassidy Sinclair becomes enmeshed in the preparations for war, the Knights must divide their focus to protect her. Cassidy has no special skills or talents, but somehow fate has tapped her for a major role in the unfolding war.
VERDICT Eder's historical fantasy debut provides a fresh take on knights and "holy" orders in a tale that provides plenty of action, both magical and physical. The author's characters shine, and he is a rising talent to watch.
