This book was like a chameleon for me, when it started I thought it was straight up high fantasy but as a continued to read I realized that it’s actually a very cunningly written dystopian fantasy. I really like it when an author throws you a curve. I thought the Gabby was a pretty wonderful character, when she starts out she’s essentially a servant but with dreams to be more and she’s not about to let the status quo stop her. The thing is Gabby lives in world where certain people have the power to control the elements; earth, fire, air, and water. Gabby knows that she is a Firemaker, the only problem is that only men are allowed to be Firemakers. Gabby’s solution is to cut off all her hair and pretend to be a boy. But before she can start her Councilman training there’s a fire started at the school and Gabby is blamed. While she’s on the run from the authorities, she meets the rest of her council (air, earth, water, and unmanifested). She also starts falling for her Airmaster, Adam, who used to be a sentry and so she’s not sure if she can trust him entirely. There’s a lot of tension between Gabby, Adam, and Hanai. Hanai is an Unmanifested, which means he does not control one of the elements. I got to say that I am 100% Team Hanai….Adam can suck it. Although those you out there that enjoy a good alpha male bad boy will enjoy Adam. Gabby begins to develop more and more powers and with that she realizes that she has a great responsibility both to her country and her council. There are powers at play that try to manipulate Gabby but her journey has turned her into too strong a woman to let that happen. I’m very interested to see what happens in the next book because reading this one was a blast!

Unfortunately I found the plot confusing. Many times I read that a character was 'almost' killed but turned out later to have 'miraculously survived'. I also didn't like that the author killed off 2 of the key characters and I wasn't sure if they would 'come back to life'.
In addition, the wholesale killing for no reason, other than 'Alex wanted it done' with no real clear reason or justification was not enjoyable.
Having just finished 'Elemental Rush', it makes things clearer, but I don't think 'Elemental Hunger' should be read as a stand alone story. Especially since it is from a different point of view.
The entire book keeps one wondering about Adam and his loyalties and where he stands with the 'Sentrys' or with Gabby.
Overall this story decent, but I felt the plot was in need of some improvements.
The author created a society of rules with a domineering leader. The plot is thick with magic and danger as our fearless heroes seek a better world. The book does seem like it's dragging at times, and there's too much emphasis paced on the love triangle. Regardless, it was a great read.
