WATER (Book 1 in the Akasha Series) by Terra Harmony
The Back Cover…
All of the elemental powers are in the palm of her hand…and it won’t be enough to save her. When Kaitlyn Alder is involuntarily introduced to a life of magic, she becomes part of an organization hell-bent on saving the Earth. Just as her new-found life holds promises of purpose, romance, and friendship, the organization divides and a rogue member holds Kaitlyn hostage. Now one of the most terrifying men the human race has to offer stands between her and Earth’s survival.
I LOVED this book, plain and simple. I am EXCITED about this book and the books to follow. This new author has completely amazed me, sucking me into this world she has created that I didn’t want to step away from. This review is actually kind of hard for me to write as I don’t want to post any spoilers!
The action starts from the first chapter as Kaitlyn finds herself in the middle of an avalanche, waking up in an unknown place with unknown people and not being treated very kindly by her captors. Little does she know that she has been watched for a very long time, as she has, unbeknownst to her, powers that are strong and powerful. As she comes to grip with this knowledge and begins her training to be a Gaia, a whirlwind romance is thrown into the mix. Soon Kaitlyn will find herself headed out to her first assignment with the other members of The Seven. Things won’t go as planned and Kaitlyn must delve into her inner strength to survive.
I was shocked at the turn of evens about half way in, never in a million years seeing it coming. Same goes for the ending! I was kept on the edge of my seat through the whole book, not being able to read fast enough to find out what happened in the next chapter. Water reads fast, never lagging. I love the characters, I love the premise, I loved the writing style. If it wasn’t for some grammatical errors, Water would of been given 5 stars, more if possible. Let me say this though, the errors were NOT enough to pull you away from the story, but are something that I personally take into consideration when reviewing books. Water is a very promising beginning to the three more books to follow in the series. I am excited to read book two, Air, which comes out early 2012.
Water has been gone through and re-checked for errors. Five star read!
