Air (Akasha #2) by Terra Harmony

Book Blurb:
She carries more than just elemental powers. In ‘Air’, the sequel to ‘Water’ of the Akasha Series, Kaitlyn has a secret. One she won’t be able to hide much longer. As the strongest Gaia the planet has ever seen, she must face mankind’s greatest enemy as he campaigns for ‘One Less: Depopulation’. Everything depends on Kaitlyn fully embracing her role as Gaia. Her family. The Seven. The Earth. Something has to give, and it won’t be Kaitlyn.

My review:
If you know me in real life and not just as the author of this blog, one thing you know about
me is that I lack patience. So when I finished Water, the first book in this series, I was thrilled to be able to quickly put my hands on Air. What sucks (for me and other impatient readers) is that book three does not come out until October 2012. This is one of the reasons I prefer not to start a series until the series is complete - so I can devour them quickly!

Air is a worthy sequel to Water. The story of Kaitlyn, Micah, Alex, Susan, Cato and Shawn continues. We learn more back story, and some shocking secrets are revealed. I wasn't thrilled with where this book in the series ended, but I wasn't totally dissatisfied with it either. I had just hoped it would go just a little bit longer. This book in the series focuses more on character development and less on action, but the action is there - you just need to wait for it.

This is a series that really does need to be read in order so be sure to read Water before you read Air. My only complaint about this book at all is that I now have to wait for the next one! A great series so far.

  2. Hi Kimba! If you want to wait to read the entire series you'll need to wait longer than October, unfortunately. October is when book three is released, but this is a four or five book series. I'm so glad you stopped by. I hope you'll keep coming back.
