Wind Crown is the stunning sequel to Ice Crown! The title of Master Shaper should be hers, but she is given a series of trials instead.
The trials are a test of honor. But are they something more as well?
Talise should be the automatic winner of the competition. The title of Master Shaper should be hers. But then Aaden sabotages her demonstration and everything changes.
Now the emperor is determined to test their honor and skill through a series of trials. No matter how hard Talise tries, her every attempt seems to displease the emperor.
Could it be that something more is going on?

Excerpt from Wind Crown (The Elements of Kamdaria Episode 2)
As the crown flew toward the emperor, a smile curved onto his mouth.
Talise had impressed him. The crown was inches from his head now. Close enough that he could feel how cold it was. She’d leave it on his head for three seconds before bringing it back to the bowl.
Just as she lowered her creation onto his jet-black hair, the crown melted. With her fingers working to levitate ice, the change to water caused her to lose control. Just for a split second, but it was enough. Too much.
Water splashed all over the emperor, soaking his hair and shoulders. The crease reappeared between his eyebrows, even deeper than before.
Everyone in the room gasped. Though they were whispers, she still heard the comments from onlookers.
“She’ll never be chosen now.”
“What a shame. She was so much better than the others.”
Talise tightened her hand into a fist. What happened? She had control. Everything was going perfectly. She ran her thumb across the tips of her fingers. Just as she suspected, they were as cold as they should have been. Colder even. She hadn’t done anything that would make the crown melt.
But if it wasn’t her…
While the guards hurried to supply the emperor with unnecessary towels, Talise scanned the students along the wall until she found who she was looking for. Aaden held his palms out in front of him so they were directly facing the emperor. Even more incriminating, he wore a smirk and stared back at her with fire in his eyes.
He had done this. He sabotaged her demonstration by sending a wave of heat that must have melted her ice. She wanted to burn him and freeze him all at once, but a tiny part of her couldn’t help be impressed by his skill. He must have sent the world’s smallest and most direct heat wave in order to do what he did. Still, no matter how skillful, what he did was wrong. She wasn’t about to let him get away with it.
