Plenty people have deadbeat parents, but how many have fathers who keep showing up to kill them? Just one more example of what a lucky woman I am. Oh wait, I'm not even human anymore—I'm a Fire-controlling Elemental called a Phoenix. And boy, do I have daddy issues!
I also have long-lost sibling issues when my sister and brother show up on my new Elemental clan's doorstep. They were rescued from Daddy Dearest's evil lab by an old enemy in a show of good faith. Turns out that enemy's now carrying his latest magical science experiments (twins!) and claims she can help us save my bondmate Jake's own twin, Colin. The one we thought was beyond saving.
Now we're in a race to find Colin's watery grave and free my siblings from our father's psychic powers. If only I master my own abilities as the world's first Elemental liegelord in centuries, we might stand a chance.
The title's gender-neutral, thank you very much, and I'm about to show Daddy Dearest he messed with the wrong daughter. Failure's not an option, because it means that everyone I love will be mind-controlled minions of my father—or dead beyond saving.
