This was a fantastic paranormal read. I really enjoyed this book. I read the entire book In one sitting. I was hooked from the very beginning. This is the first book that I have read from this author and I was not disappointed. I recommend this book to anyone who is into paranormal books.
A sexy Fire Elemental on the verge of self-combustion. A human woman with a touch of Water in her blood. A supernatural foe bent on destruction.
Levi, warrior and Fire Elemental, has one mission—to protect the mortal realm from the forces of Chaos. But that changes after a chance encounter with a human woman whose smile makes him burn hotter than the fire inside him.
Brooke Simmonds can’t forget the mysterious man with flames in his eyes and strange tattoos on his arms who walked through an inferno to save her from a devastating apartment fire. When she finds him again, their reunion ignites a fiery passion that threatens to consume them both.
But Levi is back for another, more urgent reason. The Chaolt are after Brooke. There’s a power awakening inside her, and they plan to exploit it. She’s suddenly sucked into a world, and a war, she never knew existed while Levi’s powers blaze even more out of control, endangering everyone around him.
The attraction between Levi and Brooke is so hot it sizzles, but if he doesn’t get his fire in check and stop the Chaolt, the entire town of Topaz Ridge may go up in flames.
Im excited to read more book from this author in the near future.
In a world full of supernatural dangers, the Elemental Warriors are tasked with keeping the balance in check. This is the first story of the series and follows Levi and Brooke. Brooke is thrown into Levi’s dangerous world and he tries to protect her. The cliché of falling for the one you are supposed to protect is easy to pick up on from the start but I was all for the hot romance between the two. Brooke has her own secrets and Levi is determined to find out what she is hiding. Together, like fire and water, they create a steamy love story sure to make any reader flush with anticipation. I look forward to reading more about the Elemental Warriors as the series continues. I love the concept of the storyline as it’s an easy and enjoyable read.
Just reading this first book of this new series, I can already tell this is going to be such a great reading bundle series. If you are a fan of fantasy, paranormal, and romantic stories, you will enjoy this first book in the series. Morgan does such a great job in keeping its readers engaged and eager to know what will happen next.
Elementals are part-human individuals with the ability of elemental properties (earth, wind, fire, etc). These Elemental Warriors are brought to Earth, most especially to Topaz Ridge, to help seek and kill Chaolts, those who bring supernatural disasters and chaos with them. In comes the Fire Elemental, Levi, whose chance meeting with the girl with a beautiful smile brings the unexpected.
As Levi patrols through the streets of Topaz Ridge, he bumps into Brooke, an up and coming graphic designer at a local newspaper. The attraction builds towards one another at this random meeting and it is intensified after an explosion happens in Brooke’s apartment building. Levi ends up going in to save Brooke and starts making some interesting discoveries along the way that involve the strange occurrences and even with Brooke herself.

My rating: <a href=”https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/5016873807″>4 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
Burn is a novel that brings in new ideas and concepts in the paranormal realm as there are Elementals that– you guessed it– have control over certain elements. The plot was set up well, something to note is that at times the story gets a bit saturated with its wording which can cause it to drag. There is plenty of romance and steamy scenes in this book if that is what you are looking for. I really did enjoy reading about Brooke and Levi’s relationship, and how it evolved and grew.

Burn (Elemental Warriors Book 1) by Joanna Morgan
I thought this story was unique. The concept of elementals protecting the world from from chaos is something I found interesting. The way the author connected her story to the reason behind natural disasters gave authenticity to her world. I found it intriguing. I loved the main characters. It was a slow build up with their chemistry flaring brighter with each page. Who would have thought that fire and water would go so well together? The story had action, drama and love. The other warriors piqued my interest as well. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series to learn more about them.
Burn (Elemental Warriors Book 1) by Joanna Morgan – Review by Jessica Stone
Who doesn’t love a hot, buff, elemental warrior who’s single minded focus is making sure you’re safe? No one, that’s who.
This paranormal romance has a wonderfully new story that grabs you and sucks you in.
Levi is a fire elemental who is part of an elite group of warriors who has one job, to protect everyone from this nasty stuff called chaos, and track down the sleepers before the Chaolt do. But then by chance, or what I call fate he’s at the right place at the right time and saves Brooke, from a fire, and she’s exactly what Levi’s been looking for. 🔥
Brooke can’t stop obsessed over this hot stranger who saved her life, and thankfully for her fate just keeps thrusting them together.
But what Brooke didn’t know is she’s a “sleeper” a human with latent abilities and are waking inside of her, unfortunately that makes her a target for the evil Levi’s been fighting to stop.
Both characters are relatable and their chemistry is fantastic, the story is new, a different take on an elemental story than those I’ve read before but comparable in every wonderful aspect.
I’m pretty big into paranormal romance, forced proximity, lately so this filled my cup very well.
The author did a good job at world building and did not rush to skip through the important character and world building details. The idea to this book is fantastic, the thought put into using real events in history as a premise in this story as to what the sleepers can do is just awesome. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series, I definitely can be read as a stand alone but after reading this I’m unsure anyone could say they don’t want more of this series.
Can’t wait to see what Joanne and our Elemental warriors have in store for us.
Burn, Elemental Warriors Series, Joanna Morgan, Review, Itsy Bitsy Book Bits, Paranormal, Romance, Jessica Stone, September 2022
This is the first book by Joanna Morgan I have read, and I enjoyed the story of Levi and Brooke. Even though this book has a slow start it is worth it to keep reading. This novel is written in a unique paranormal way with Levi sensing the sleepers. Brooke learns of a new whole new world than she used to. The author does a good job of building up the scene but does spend a lot of time giving details but other times it seemed to be rushed. I am looking forward to seeing where this story leads me so bring on book two. I’m ready to get more.
This is a wonderful story that slowly drew me In. I like the ideas this author put out for each of the elementals and how and where they live/function. The characters definitely kept me entertained during the story. Either the two main (Levi and Brooke) or the others on Levi’s team. There is a lot of action in here as well as slower moments. I was happy to jump back in every night right before bed.
This is a new to me author. The writing is good and the pace of the story kept me coming back.
Burn was different and interesting. This was one of the first elemental books I’ve read. It seemed interesting and appealing so I took the leap. I’ll be honest I didn’t love it but I didn’t hate it either. It’s part of the sci-fi/fantasy genre that I would give another chance. I would definitely give this author another chance, because despite what I feel/don’t feel for this book the author has a lot of promise. An author that I would definitely read again if presented the opportunity. It took time for me to get into this book but once I was there. I enjoyed the substance of the story that was written.
Levi, our main character, I feel like despite everything going on was on a path to self discovery. At least that’s how I interpreted it. Losing control of his powers(elemental fire.) While also experiencing unexpected attraction to a human woman. Attraction he’s never felt before. Which doesn’t help when he keeps ending up in her path. Eventually protecting her from the unknown to her(Chaolt.)
Brooke swore she was living an ordinary life. Finally landing her dream job and living freely in Nevada. Till it all literally blows up in her face. Caught in a fire a mysteriously attractive man saves her, who somehow controls the fire, or is she crazy?
The dynamic and tension between both these characters is well written, and it’s what kept me latched on to the story itself. Being from different worlds and trying to understand each as their own. Trying to navigate feelings that shouldn’t be had. Trying to survive the Chaolts and try to understand what they want. It all keeps one intrigued, but to get that you need to push through. That is if you struggle like I did at the beginning.
Lots and Lots of promise for this author and I look forward to reading more books in the future.
I love all things Supernatural, so this book got my attention. It promised fire and chaos, and it delivered. There wasn’t a dull moment. A lot of times when you start reading a book, it tends to start off rather slow. It usually dives into the background story or characters and drags a little bit. That wasn’t the case with this book. It grabbed me from the very first page and I was hooked.
This was an interesting read! I liked that this was a different take on elementals than what I’ve read before in the past. It was fast paced, and full of sexual tension and sizzling energy throughout the whole book. Some of the scenes felt a little rushed but overall it was a good read. This is the first book in the Elemental Warriors series and I’m intrigued to see where the rest of the books go.
My first book by this author, and gosh am I thrilled I picked it up! What a story! A paranormal romance that brings it all; original, action-packed, steamy and suspenseful. With phenomenal world building, it made me feel right there in the story. I can’t wait to see what book two has in store for me.
This book was SOOOOO steamy I could not put it down! I have not read any books by this author to my knowledge, and I was HOOKED! The story line between Levi and Brooke was so good I could not stop reading! The way that the author wrote the book, I felt as though I was in the story with them, not just reading it. I cannot wait to read more books by this author!
So paranormal romances are sort of a guilty pleasure for me. I enjoyed how this was a new take on the paranormal romance trope that intrigues me from the synapse of the book. Add in to that some action and adventure this is the beautiful start to a new series by Ms. Morgan.
I loved Levi as the elemental fire warrior whose main mission is to protect the human realm from supernatural threats. That is until inadvertently meeting Brooke when he saves her life, pulling her from an apartment fire. As they keep running into each other the fire burns hotter in Levi, and something begins to awaken in Brooke that gets her attention from the Chaolt. Will Levi be enough to save Brooke from the Chaolt? Can Brooke figure out this new power awakening within her and discover why she has been thrust into a supernatural war?
This book definitely has a very slow start, but with this being a new series and requiring necessary world building for the reader it is semi expected. If you can get past all the needed details to build up the storyline this is definitely an action filled romance novel that may make you feel unnecessarily heated. Definitely a must read if you want a paranormal romance that is different from the rest. I cannot wait to see what comes next in this series and am excited to follow along.
Burn (Elemental Warriors Book 1) by Joanna Morgan. 5 out of 5 stars
Brooke and Levi, as different as fire and water, literally. Burn is book 1 in the Elemental Warriors Series, and what a fantastic book. Levi is a Fire Elemental and a warrior of his people, his one and only mission is to protect the mortal realm from the Chaos. He runs into Brooke, a human, or is she? She makes Levi crazy. Brooke finds herself in danger when dangerous forces are after her, and Levi is the only one she knows who can protect her. Her powers are awaking, but what are they? Levi’s powers are becoming unstable, is she the reason he is losing control? If they don’t figure out something quick, then Levi is going to burn everything to the ground.
What a brilliant start to a new series. This book pulls you right in from the word go and I found myself unable to put the book down. I loved the characters and the dynamic between them. It is interesting and I found them easy to engage with.
The book is really well written. It is an exciting story and at lot seems to happen. The author builds it up well, creating a book that is fast paced and really great to read. As the first book in the series this has definitely piqued my interest as to what will come next.
I so loved this book and the flow of the story line. The author took her time and didn’t rush through the ending to just finish the book. As a reader, I appreciate a well thought out story. This book had an underlying current of tension all the way though.
Brooke is a career oriented person who is adamant on paying her own way in life. She moved to a quiet town that made her feel like this was home. She’s a graphic designer for the local newspaper and loves her job.
Levi is an elemental from a different planet to keep humans safe from the Chaolt (a causer of chaos) in the form of natural disasters. Everytime a Chaolt kills a sleeper ( a human with latient elemental powers) a disaster is caused.
Levi and Brooke meet when Levi sees her across the street and his powers get all twitchy. He has no idea why he is reacting as such. Yes, she is beautiful but he has seen beautiful women before.
So much happens once these two meet that you will not be able to put this book down. Brook is in danger at every turn and will need protection from something she knows nothing about. This story has twists and turns, suspense to keep you reading and a love story you will be cheering for until the very end.
Immersive and thought provoking
Absolutely love me and Elemental based paranormal book and this one did not disappoint. I was totally hooked from the first page and the whole world and concept presented was so original I wanted to know more.
Based in the mortal world there are Elementals, pretty much an alien species. Then there are Sleepers hidden amongst the mortals and then there is the Chaolt- pretty much the mortal enemy. I’m not going to say much more as I don’t want to add spoilers but it is all exciting stuff. And yes there is definitely romance – so check out this great first book in the Elemental Warriors Series.
I really enjoyed this story and the concept of Elementals, Sleepers and The Chaolt mixed with action, intrigue and spark between Brooke and Levi.
Brooke is saved from an apartment fire by a mysterious man….Levi, who is a fire elemental. He is protective and intrigued by Brooke…..and they definitely have chemistry. Levi must protect Brooke from The Chaolt as they are after her….and the elementals need to protect Earth
There is so much to this book and I do not want to give anything away….this is a really enjoyable paranormal story and I am totally looking forward to more in this series!
This was definitely not what I was expecting but in a great way! I love how creative and different it is. The romance wasn’t in your face or steal the show from the storyline it played into it and enhanced it like it should. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes fantasy novels.
Burn (Elemental Warriors Book 1) by Joanna Morgan
4 out of 5 stars
Burn by Joanna Morgan is a great new concept to the paranormal fantasy tale. Follow Levi and Brook in this refreshing new concept as they learn about each other and fight against the odds to be with each other.
I loved the new concept, the story line and the characters, but it was very hard for me to keep reading through this book. I just thought it was very slow throughout the whole book, until the very end. When you work full time and have kids it was very hard for me not to get distracted or “get in the zone”, to read this book.
Despite this book being slow, I did think the writing was good. The plot was all brand new and there was a lot of world building, so I believe that is why the book might have been on the slower side. I also loved the forbidden romance between Levi and Brook, along with them having to defy the odds. Brook is learning of a whole new world, and learning about a whole new part of herself.
Due to the flaws, but with reason, I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars. Overall it was still a great read, the characters were amazing, and I loved the new storyline and world.
I really do hope that as this series develops, I can fall in love with it more, because it is a really great story line.
For any future readers, please know that this is a start of a series, but can be read as a stand alone. I, personally, cannot stop after reading just this book, so I cannot wait for the rest of the series to be published.
This book is the beginning of a series and can be read as a stand alone. The fast pace, page turning action of the story line will have you sitting on the edge of your seat and dying to find out what happens. Levi has the element of fire meaning he can create, control, and cause fire to happen anywhere at any time. Brooke is your general run of the mill normal human girl with no elemental powers or so she thinks. The mystery that also follows the story line sets up for the other books to follow and I can’t wait. Levi is trying to protect Brooke which is forcing them to spend time together and what happens when people are forced to be in each other proximity in a romance book, yep you got it. The steam happens. This book has it all mystery, action, passion, forbidden love, protection, and chaos. I highly recommend this book to anyone who like paranormal and who like a good romance read. It will keep you high entertained and wanting more. I can’t wait for book two.

I don’t even know where to begin with this book! This was the perfect book for me since I have always been obsessed with element bending stories such as Fate: The Winx Saga and Avatar: The Last Airbender. This was the perfect adult version of those two stories, the chemistry between the characters was almost as good as the story itself!
A fantastic paranormal romance, I highly suggest that everyone who loves fantasy read this book. The characters of Levi and Brooke are expertly written, I love watching both of the characters grow as the story continues. I can’t wait to see what comes next in the series!
Brooke is living a relatively normal life, until she happens to cross paths with Levi. Levi is an elemental who can control, cause, and create, fire. It’s not until her apartment building explodes and Levi rescues her from the aftermath that Brooke learns that there is something more to Levi than meets the eye, though she doesn’t know quite what yet. Eventually, Levi tells her the truth, in an effort to protect her from the Chaolt, the chaos creators who often kill Sleepers, or humans with latent elemental powers, in an effort to bring about as much chaos and destruction as possible. When it becomes clear that Brooke is a Sleeper, Levi and his team work to protect her, which puts Levi and Brooke in close quarters are they try to use her as bate to get the Chaolt to come out of their hiding places. With all the time they spend together, Brooke and Levi start to develop a relationship, even though elementals are not allowed to have relationships with humans.
Burn is the first book in the Elemental Warriors series. This was a really good read. The story was captivating from the very beginning. I loved the immediate attraction between Levi and Brooke but also how the secrets start to unravel in regards to Levi been an Elemental and Brooke a Sleeper.
Levi is an Elemental who’s job is to protect earth from Chaos. He is also tasked with finding Sleepers (humans with Elemental powers). He need to find and protect them before they fall into the hands of Chaolt. Chaolt are out to find the Sleepers and use their hidden power to destroy and cause chaos in the human world.
The attraction between Levi and Brooke is instant but Elementals aren’t allowed to get involved with humans and with the added complications of Brookes hidden power it’s a relationship that is doomed to not work. However she seems to be the cool water to his scorching fire.
It was a fast paced story full of passion however its also a story of Forbidden Love as they aren’t meant to be together. Levi’s job is to protect her from evil not to fall in love with her.
I can’t wait to see where this series will go. And I’m looking forward to book 2
“Elementals had always played a part in human evolution and history, moving back and forth freely at times. Despite being unknown to most mortals, they viewed Earth as our neighbor in the cosmic universe. Now, only a few were allowed here for the purpose of fighting Chaos.
With the aid of the other warriors, Levi searched for Sleepers—humans with latent elemental powers—in hopes of draining them before the enemy, the Chaolt, caused them to self-destruct. And in so doing, caused damage and loss of life, and increased the amount of chaos in the world.
Self-destructing Sleepers were easy prey. More bang for less buck. Flash floods, blizzards, avalanches, tornadoes, the earthquake in 2008… They could all be blamed on the Chaolt. And that was just in Nevada. The loss of human life could be staggering, the amount of chaos released, catastrophic. Pompeii, for example. Which is why Sleepers drew the forces of Chaos like ants to sugar.
But Sleepers were rare. Even in large cities, only a handful could be found. Unless, of course, the city had a portal, a doorway between the Elemental and Mortal worlds. Sleepers felt drawn to the portals, usually settling nearby, their subconscious happier close to ‘home’. This desire to be near the portal made Topaz Ridge, and other portal cities and towns around the world, home to many Sleepers and ground zero for the war against Chaos.
Chaos had the ability to destroy the very fabric of the universe, Levi’s own world included, and for reasons unknown, that seemed to be their goal.
And they were winning. All anyone had to do to see they were losing the war against Chaos was to watch the TV or read the newspaper. Every day, there was a new disaster in some part of this world….”
Burn is the first book in the Elemental Warriors series and debut novel by Joanna Morgan. This is a fantastic paranormal romance with plenty of originality, danger, Elemental warriors facing off against a powerful supernatural adversary, action, adventure, mystery, intrigue, tension, intensity, chemistry, steam, and agendas. I was drawn to the book by the interesting cover and the fact the blurb promised something a little different in paranormal romance… and, to be honest, Ms. Morgan had me at Elementals. So, I didn’t waste a minute and grabbed a copy and began to immediately explore.
I was soon immersed in an exciting story that pulled me in and kept me flipping the pages, avidly reading to discover how things would play out. I loved the creative and original world-building, it really added an extra element of interest to the whole story for me. The whole Elemental Warriors, Sleepers, Chaolt thing was really well done and had me invested right from the opening passages. I think this book sets the series off to a fantastic start and I can’t wait to get my hands on Book #2!
If you love paranormal romance you will definitely want to grab a copy of this book to explore.
Thank you, Joanna Morgan!

Wow, do I ever like the change of pace. I have watched shows before where different elements are brought into the picture, but this is one of the first novels I’ve read with this take on magic/paranormal aspect within their pages. I absolutely love Brooke’s character throughout, but especially as she’s becoming comfortable in her own skin, and owning her person. She has just met some of her life goals when things get a little steamy, so to speak, and Levi enters into the story.
The character development was wonderful, slow, yet addictive and delightful with every sentence, and I really felt as though I was experiencing the whirlwind of emotions both main characters felt. This author is a new one for me, and I will be sure to read more of her skilled writing soon, especially the next installment in this series. Highly recommend, well worth a read!
I really enjoyed this book and the author’s writing skills. I could not simply put it down, there was much to learn about and wonder, and of course it was a book full of action and intrigue!
I loved the writing of the story and how the author did the flow of the characters and the story! Loved the fantasy aspect of the story. The Elementals were great beings, that I loved learning about. Brooke was a great addition to the story as well, she was very relatable and in a human way, complicated things for Levi. There was a lot of chemistry and passion, but there was a line that must not be crossed for many reasons. I cannot wait to read more by this author and the Elementals. There was so much I wanted answered, I just really enjoyed the characters and the story! Really held my interest! Loved it!
Great read, full of action, suspense, and moments that make your heart ache! A fun read as well! I look forward to reading more! For sure, I highly recommend this author and book! A must read!
This story was a great start to an exciting and adventurous series, and personally I can’t wait to read more. While normally my fantasy stories involve wishes, vampires and fae, this one had a whole new outlook with the elemental aspect. The story as a whole was exciting, adventurous, suspenseful, and more. The characters were built perfectly and the plot as a whole had me on the edge of my seat. While I love all fantasy genres this one has quickly become one of my favorites and I can’t wait to see what our author gives us next.
