Very interesting ideas, worth exploring. Written in a very accessible style, similar to Wheat Belly. Gives lots of drug-free/drug-minimum options for coping with a wide variety of emotional/mental health issues.

Recommended: yo, if you've come this far into the series you're OBVIOUSLY not stopping here. YES READ IT!!!!

Thoughts:
After the ending of the third book, I think there's no surprise that there's a lot going on at the start of this one, and primarily sad things. Chaotic things. Grief features heavily, so brace yourself because it's really really tough at times how raw it was. I cried a lot at the end of the last book, and this one was no different. Ella M Lee has a string attached directly to my tear ducts.

My suspicions about what this book would entail were 50% correct. I predicted one of the main plot points, but that was about it. The details of how things occurred, the resolutions of several other large problems, and the very last pages were all fitting with the characters and the decisions they would make. After binge reading 4 books in this fabulous series, I feel really attached with the characters and their lives. It was really hard at times when characters made decisions that were SO in tune with who they are, but absolutely broke my heart for them to make.

While I'm a softie and I cried a lot as always, this was still full of hope and drama and excitement. The bulk of the book takes place during a clan event, so there was a lot to learn about some of the other clans we haven't seen as much of yet. The politicking was also on full display, along with some intriguing new rules of the magic world. The world-building and lore and rules of magic are a core draw for me for any fantasy novel, and Lee delivered in this installment. The knowledge building aligned us with Fiona as she learned through it all as well.

And of course, we FINALLY get to learn about Lightning magic!! Yo, it's cool as shit. Promise: it does not disappoint.

This book is best defined by the word bittersweet. While I could have immediately dove into book 5, and absolutely wanted to, I paused here to just let it sit for a little while. This whole arc was extremely intense and I wanted to soak in all the questions, because I can never experience these for the first time again (barring some horrible amnesiac event which I hope does not occur). And I can say that after a few weeks of finishing this book (in two days...), I'm still thinking about it and marveling at how very extremely good it is.

I'm ready for book five.

Break my heart again, Lee.

Thank you to Booksirens and Ella M Lee for a free digital copy. This is my honest review!

This book explained a lot about my 58 years. I especially appreciated the explanation of what's happening in the brain to generate the thought processes and behaviors associated with ADHD. The suggestions for managing (and capitalizing on) ADHD are practical and the discussion of pharmaceutical options is thorough. I read a library copy but I'm pretty sure I'll end up buying a copy to share, annotate, and refer to in the future.

maybe because I have heard him speak, I thought it would be more like what I heard and practical suggestions, etc. for educators. The book is the brain research behind the idea. Interesting, but by the second half it was very redundant.
