War. Prophecy. Freedom.
She fought for herself.
She fought for friendship and love.
Now, Kendra Irisavie fights for the survival of her world.
War rages on, leaving no one untouched. Destruction rips through elemental communities and terror flourishes in its wake. Suspicion soars, order fractures, and loyalties crumble despite Kendra’s desperate attempts to protect everyone she holds dear.
When an organized Aquidae army launches a series of merciless assaults, Kendra and her friends set out to end the bloodshed once and for all. With the fate of elementals hanging in balance, the Shadow and sondaleur hunt each other down in a brutal match of cunning and will.
Kendra has trained for this her entire life. But in a ravaged world where trust is scarce and no life is sacred, she soon realizes her battle may be against an invincible enemy and that her darkest days lie ahead.
Twists and turns shape her harrowing odyssey, leading to a stunning climax that challenges everything she believes in.
Torn between destiny and autonomy, Kendra must finally decide whether the cost of freedom is too high.
Heartbreaking decisions, turbulent alliances, and shattering revelations collide in Breaker, the explosive conclusion to the Ondine Quartet.

WHAT EARLY REVIEWERS ARE SAYING
“10 out of 5…Yes, it was that good!” – Jennifer, Book Worm Coalition
“Breaker was everything I had wanted it to be, and a bunch of other things I didn’t know I wanted, or needed. It was the perfect combination of somberness and hopefulness. There wasn’t a single second of this that I would change, even the parts that broke me. They all added up to something so incredible.” –Tricia, Book Worm Coalition
“I can tell you that it is one long, amazing thrill ride, filled with trials and tribulations, and all you have is your friends.” – Lindsay, Goodreads review
“I have no words. Emma Raveling is an INCREDIBLE writer and all I can say is this final installment went above and beyond all expectations. My only regret is the end of an AMAZING series. LOVED IT!” –Jen, Goodreads review
“10 stars. Absolutely perfect ending to an incredible series.” – Melanie, Book Passion for Life
“Breaker is everything I hoped and needed it to be. Emma Raveling has written the stunning, fierce, and surprising conclusion that both readers and her characters deserve. I cannot thank her enough for giving this magical series to the world!!” – Aeicha, Word Spelunking

Before Breaker’s release tomorrow, I wanted to share a few thoughts.
The Ondine Quartet took up a little over four years of my life. I’ve lived with and dreamed about these characters and this world for almost 1500 days. I wrote through an international move, two close deaths in my family, through professional changes at my day job, and through my own physical recovery after what happened last year.
Breaker, in its first draft, was about 250,000 words (that’s 3 times the length of Whirl). I did pare it down in subsequent drafts, but it’s still an epic sized novel and the longest in the series.
Combined with the other books, I’ve published over 600,000 words and written over a million words (including previous drafts) in the Ondine Quartet.
Realizing I was no longer going to be working on this world hit me pretty hard. It’s as if I suddenly stopped seeing and talking to close friends I’d spent every day with for four years.
What floored me, though, was realizing I wasn’t alone in this. Some of you have already read the finale and begun to post your reviews. Others have sent such kind comments and messages about how much you’re waiting and looking forward to the end of Kendra’s story.
I just wanted to say how touched and grateful I am that you’ve loved these characters as much as I do. Kendra, Tristan, Julian, Jeeves, Nexa, Aubrey, Chloe and all of Haverleau couldn’t be luckier.
Thank you for accompanying Kendra on her journey.
I gave Breaker everything I had and hope it’s the epic finale both you and our heroine deserve. <3

A Note: Breaker Reader Support Group
Some of you have received ARCs and are already reading BREAKER. I’ve setup a fun Facebook group for readers to vent/talk/get support while reading and after reading the Ondine Quartet finale. Anyone is welcome to join – I’d love to see you there! Obviously, huge spoilers are posted in this group so I’d advise not joining until you’ve at least begun reading the book.
It’s a great place to chat with me / ask me questions/ and discuss the series with other readers – you can join the group here.
It’s the final Teaser Tuesday for Breaker before its release next week and this one includes an ARC giveaway!
A note: I’ve tried to keep teasers as spoiler-free as possible, but some things may inevitably slip through. If you absolutely don’t want to know anything before heading into the book, your best bet is to avoid these teasers. You can simply scroll down to enter the giveaway below.
I move closer, rest my shoulder against the soft, reassuring heat of his body. “Why did they call you the Silver Sun?”
Night retreats and dawn emerges. Indigo blends with pink and orange into a painting more majestic than anything mortals could ever produce with their own hands.
“So beautiful,” I murmur.
“It is terrible.”
“Because the night must say goodbye for the morning to say hello.”
Dawn strengthens, claiming the world with each passing second.
“The moon and sun shall never share the sky together.” Valeil ruffles his wings. “Without them, no day would pass. Despite their importance, both remain servants of time, cursed to an eternity alone. And so they continue to wait for the other. Every dawn and dusk they have a moment of companionship within infinite moments of solitude.”
Just before the last faint glow of moonlight dissolves, dawn’s pink rays reach for the ivory beams.
They tangle in an intimate embrace, a tender kiss between lovers, in a strip of sky that holds yearnings both perfect and impossible.
“I bind the past to the present and future. I am that moment when silver moonlight meets the bright arms of the sun. I am Valeil.”
His words reverberate with the ache of enduring loneliness.
To enter for a chance to win an eARC of Breaker, head on over to my Facebook page and like, share, or comment on this post. Each action counts as an entry. One winner will be selected Wednesday, January 21 at 5PM EST. Good luck!
