There once was a boy, and I loved him.

Logan Francis Silverstone and I were complete opposites. I danced, and he stood still. He was quiet, while I ran my mouth. He struggled to find a smile, and I refused to frown.

The night I saw the darkness that truly lived inside of him, I couldn't look away.

We were broken together, yet somehow whole. We were wrong together, but always right. We were the stars that burned across the night sky, searching for a wish, praying for better tomorrows.

Until the day I lost him. He threw us away with one hasty decision--a decision that changed us forever.

There once was a boy, and I loved him.

And for a few breaths, a few whispers, a few moments, I think he loved me, too.

I am sitting here, with my fingers hovering over the keyboard, willing the words to come out that will express my feelings for this book. To be honest my thoughts are everywhere. My feelings are someplace above me swirling around and they just can’t be brought forth.
A work of fiction.
                                    Has made me feel like I was part of the story.
It’s no secret that I sit in awe when it comes to me reviewing Brittainy and her books. In my most honest opinion I think she gives her readers the very best stories that she can give, she has done that in the past, and this book is no exception. I fell into the lives of two very different people who just so happen to have a connection that could not be helped and watched how their lives unfolded over the course of years where the struggles were real, the darkness was intense, and the love that surrounded them didn’t always fix it all.
I didn’t know what kind of ending I would wind up in, I didn’t know who the hero would be. I didn’t know who would be still standing at the end. But as I’m still sitting here I know that all these “I don’t knows” and “the maybe’s”, are exactly what I was supposed to be thinking and feeling. The Fire Between High and Low is simply a great story. A rollercoaster ride that dips and swells at every turn of the page. A sequence of events that will take you on a journey of self-discovery and strength.
A reminder that at the end of the day, it’s who you walk home with that counts the most.
                               I can’t wait to see what book three will bring us!
 *** Even though The Fire Between High and Low is a stand- alone within a series, do yourself a favor and read book 1 of the Elementals Series, The Air He Breathes. And while you’re at it, make sure you grab the rest of Brittiany C. Cherry’s books and read them if you haven’t already. She has a true beauty to her words that just grab you from the beginning and won’t let you go until… well I still carry her words with me now… many, many, MANY days later.

“I met my best friend in the checkout lane of a grocery store.  And my life was never the same again.”

This book is one that pulled me in from the first page.  It was one that made me forget to take notes of what I was feeling, as I was reading for my review.  I was taken hostage by the story, and at some points, I had to walk away from the slow burn that was starting in my soul, because I *JUST KNEW* all that was going to be left was ashes when it was over. 

I was a junkie for these characters…afraid of how much I needed this story, so I kept pushing it away.  I didn’t want any more, but needed it just the same.  Brittainy shattered me like glass in all the best ways possible, and then put my pieces back together, and even though the pieces aren’t in the same spot they were before that is okay, because this story…these characters, Alyssa and Logan, changed me.
Their story, although painful to witness most of the time was so real.  I don’t even know how to put it into words. 

Their pain…soul crushing.
Their love…soul consuming.

The Fire Between High and Lo is a story of taking the pain one grows up with, and turning it around; not allowing it to hold you captive.  It’s a story of second chances and redemption.  It’s a book that you want to read at a slow pace so you can soak it all up.  It’s a must read.

“From the ashes, they rose, and burned once again.  He never forgot her glow, and she never forgot him.”
