About the Author:

Christie Rich lives in a small town with her husband, two kids, spastic dog, and two lazy cats. She loves delving into fantasy. Whether it is reading a book, watching a great movie, or recently, writing something she absolutely loves.

She has been focusing on the paranormal, and her first published novel, Five, is a paranormal romance. It is the first book in the Elemental Enmity Trilogy and is about a girl that discovers her role in an age old battle for world dominace between the fae and humans.

Christie is currently working diligently on the third book in the series.


Rayla Tate’s dreams for the future shattered when she discovered she was an Elemental capable of manipulating matter. Thrust, once again, into the magical fae realm of Faeresia, she has an important choice to make. But now that she has Heath to contend with, deciding between Zach and Luke is the least of her concerns. Tall, dark and lethal to her will, her attraction to Heath eclipses all she has experienced with any other lord, but he is using compulsion to wear her down. If only she could trust her feelings?

In a desperate attempt to escape Heath, she accepts the help of a little troll and finally gets what she wants; however, her relief is short lived. Things go terribly wrong when a dark force closes in on her, threatening to steal her burgeoning power before she even has a chance to test her abilities. Now, with Rayla as their captive, the Order will stop at nothing to create a male Elemental, and willing or not, Rayla is the key.

Caught up in the age-old battle for dominance between human and fae, only one question matters to her now—will she be able to save those she loves most without losing herself in the process? Or will she be forever haunted by the choices she alone can make?

My Review

When I read Five the first installment on this series I was trapped by Rayla´s story and the new world she was discovering.
The way she fought to have control over her life despite the nature of her problems grabbed me and never let go of me.
Dark matter was so much better, Christie Rich managed to make an already great story into something unbelievable..
For starters Zach and Luke are not around much, but they are constantly influencing Rayla´s decisions or lack of them.
Heath I adored and I have to say that I kinda hope that she pick´s him at the end.
The plot was amazing, the twist and turns had me glued to the book until the last page. The fact that Rayla got to grow as the story progressed but still refused to accept the fact that she doesn’t need anyone to fight her battles but herself had me guessing about her character but cheering for her at the same time.
I was so immerse on the story that I swear, I cringed and cried along with her; and what was the deal with Gibbit anyway? And is there something else about the ring he gave to Rayla? Did Fexlie save Zach?
I’m dying to read the third book so I can have some of this questions answered I have to say I was extremely shocked by the ending, I didn’t even see it coming, even thought my version had missing pages lol!!!!
