I have been suffering a bit from series hangover I have finished the completed novels of 2 series I really REALLY loved Mercy Thompson and Kate Daniels and have really struggled to find another And then I found this little gem I often find myself lukewarm about the first book in a new to me series After all the author has to introduce us to new characters and set up new situations and create the world within which we are going to immerse ourselves This is no easy task Ms Marshall however manages this ably She jumps us almost immediately into the action and unfolds the world and characters slowly throughout the novel Therefore I never really felt like any particular section is an info dump but rather everything actually made sense in the progression of the narrativeOur heroine Aidan suffered a personal crisis 10 years before the start of our story Since that time she has locked herself away from the world preferring to live isolated away from other people not even allowing contact with those who loved her As the story begins her former best friend appears on her doorstep to tell them the deaths have started again one of their dearest friends has been found murdered This then is they mystery set to solved in the remainder of the tale We discover exactly what happened 10 years previously when Aidan tells the rest of the gang so that they can understand exactly what they are facingI love the relationship between Aidan and Sera The repartee between these two is priceless and freuently brought to mind my sister and my best friend Which means that even if the conversations were not precious in their own right the memories they inspired were And I think that is one of the biggest gifts in this storyThere is a love interest And there are werekin But nary a vampire to be seen and no love triangle at least yet The heroines magic is in being able to control an element While not a totally original concept it is the first I have seen it in this setting so that alone makes the book stand out It is written in the first person which I tend to enjoy for the simple reason that it puts me in the narrators head I like playing head games With characters in novels Not with people in my lifeI hate giving glowing reviews of self pubbed books as they tend to be unhelpful to the reader because so many appear to be friendsfamily of the author So please understand I do not know in any way shape or form the author I absolutely loved this book I d probably rate it 45 stars but as that is not an option I rounded down I may adjust this as the book picks up reviews

This is pretty darn good I hope the next book is just as good or better full review to comeupdate Also posted over at Lekeisha The BooknerdWasn t sure what I was expecting from this book My first time coming across it a couple weeks ago I immediately started reading after I downloaded it There are little things that irked me but not enough to turn me off completely from the story The writing world building and characters are all very well set upIn the beginning with Aidan being tracked down after ten years in hiding I was kind of hesitant to keep reading Only because I was afraid that I wouldn t get enough backstory on the whys and hows of her sudden drop from society I didn t have to worry for long because along the way there are Aidan s recollections of what happened all those years ago and why she is wallowing in self hatred and doubt I really wanted to get to know her as a character and she opened up and as the story unfolded I m glad to say that she is really a fun character once she drops that wall she s built around herselfAidan is an Elemental Water to be exact There were lots of killings of people who were associated with Elementals years ago and Aidan along with her friend Sera Fire set up a trap for the persons responsible It all turned horribly wrong in the end and Aidan cut off all communication with everyone and turned tail Now ten years later the killings are happening again Only now the victims all have a connection to either dating Aidan or Sera at one point in their lives The other connection is that the victims are all Shapeshifters They are being killed by a powerful Elemental Earth and being left in various locations near Lake Tahoe With the help of some local Shapeshifters and Elementals Aidan and Sera try to once again find the killer The problem The FBI is keeping a close watch on Aidan and Sera now that these killings seem like no coincidence How can Aidan and Sera do there job if the humans have eyes on them This just got harder than Aidan thoughtSecondary characters seem to hold as much of the story as the main characters Simon is one that I really liked His wicked sense of humor and what he shifts into made me smile a lot while reading I won t spoil it but you will laugh when you read it Who would have thought he could be of any use to them He held his own perfectly I especially love Mac Think of a mactruck and you can just about imagine his shifting abilities I love the romance building between him and Aidan I knew from the moment that they met that they would be drawn to each other She handles him like no otherThe friendship between Sera and Aidan is very well drawn out At first introduction you don t know what will happen because there is obvious tension between them And after you get to the point of why that tension is there you understand both girls pain It was nice to see them getting back to their old selves and that bond that they share is hard to come by I love the backstory of both the Elementals and Shapeshifters Aidan is kind of a spitfire when we first meet her which put me off a little You d have thought that she was the Fire and not Water But after Sera and Aidan both start to loosen up their personalities mesh good with their magicIf you want a good urban fantasy to read I definitely recommend this book If you like Elementals Shapeshifters and magic in your reading give this book a chance I just got book two and can t wait to read it Definitely recommended

I received this book for free as part of a goodreads giveaway I will be giving an honest reviewYikes WellThe book started off strongly And it had a lot of potential I grew to love the characters and their dynamics and I m a sucker for the Ragtag Bunch of Misfits trope The characters were also looking reasonably diverse Or at least diverse than I m used to seeing Vivian is mentioned early on to have dark skin and to have had a girlfriend but those facts aren t ever brought up again Sera is ambiguously brown though in my mind she s Latina Everyone else is white but that doesn t stop me from racebending them I ll admit the world building and info dumps were hard to sit through I m still not 100% sure exactly how the culture of elementals works or whether they re supposedly immortal if at all I spent most of the book trying to figure out how everything worked World building clearly isn t strength of the bookWhere the good stuff lies is with the characters Goodness I wish that this had been contemporary As I said the characters are wonderful and they re interactions are so fun to read The parts in which they weren t worrying about solving the case or working on their magic but instead just talking like regular young adults Simon was hilarious and I hate how his character was pretty much shoved into the background after the first couple of chapters Vivian too I felt didn t get the attention that she deserved Her character felt very flat and wasn t much than the technology one Then there s Mac Now I loved Mac when he was introduced He was fascinating and I liked how he didn t disregard Aidan at all but genuinely took on her advice When Aidan indirectly told him that she was scared of him he didn t get all defensive or act like a douche about it He tried to calm himself down and apologise though his anger was perfectly justified And then the romance happenedOkay okay so it wasn t a full on romance There was certainly some insta love involved though This is why I strongly dislike first person books as when romance comes up it s far prevalent and vivid than in a third person book Seriously the team was about the drive off to solve a case and Aidan was literally wondering about Mac s abs and I kid you not running her fingers over them The worst part is that I wouldn t mind so much if 1 they were actually together 2 it wasn t just before they were going to solve the case It just felt way too inappropriate and random There is a huge difference between a slow burn romance and stretching out romance that consists of nothing but exchanging one liners and describing the colours of ones eyes And that s how Aidan and Mac s relationship development felt Aidan seemed to be smitten with Mac at the most inappropriate times which made it extremely difficult to support their relationshipEg when Aidan witnessed Mac turning into a bear for the first time It makes sense in context What could she do Try to calm him down Step away Go and get help See if he s okay What does she do She juststands there It took her about two chunky paragraphs for her to just describe how his eyes remained the same despite the fact that his body was changing blah blah all of this stuff about duality and repression Really there are far important things to talk about in this situation rather then whether your crush s eyes look like honey copper umber etcAnd that s not all that brought this book down for me Oh no As I said it was doing well for the most part About 34 of the way through Yet as soon as the reveal happened the uality of this book rapidly declinedBooks involving creepy possessive guys are one thing It depends on how the book itself treats it Is it romanticized Or does the book clearly show that it s wrong and does the character get called out on itSadly while the book makes it very clear that view spoilerBrian s hide spoiler
