Water (Akasha #1)

Water (Akasha, #1) Water (Akasha #1) by Terra Harmony.  Published Sept 26, 2011 by Patchwork Press.  CDN $0.00 on Kindle.

Elemental powers 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. (Goodreads excerpt)

Where to start? I was a little apprehensive going into this book when I was made aware that it had scenes of rape and brutality…not my thing at all.  However, I am really glad I did.  I really enjoyed he story.  I love stories with magic, especially when you mix it with science and make it more believable.  The story line was original and engaging and kept me reading intently.  The suspense was great and I kept trying to figure out what was going to happen.  Even the end left on a cliff hanger that was both satisfying as an end to this book, yet still made me want to know what happens next.

I enjoyed the interaction between Kaitlyn and Micah.  There was always a bit of mystery to him that I found intriguing.  Is he good…bad…somewhere in the middle?  I liked the love story blossoming between them while you still keep it in the back of your mind if Micah has an ulterior motive.

As for the rape that I mentioned…I don’t usually include spoilers, but it is there in the story.  I found that it was not necessarily needed, although I understand that the writer wanted you to get the full effect of what was happening to Kaitlyn.  Personally, I would have preferred he beat the crap out of her than rape her and it would have the same effect.  Having said that, it didn’t detract too much from me liking the story.  What it did was make me angry as the SOB.  Which is probably the point.

Overall, I enjoyed the story and give it 4 stars!

Teaser Tuesday (Nov 19)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

What I needed was to be wanted in a world I no longer felt a part of.  More than that, I needed to be desired, loved in spite of my faults.  I needed something, or someone, to fill the void that had been empty far too long.  I said it as best as I could with three words.  “Kiss me again.”
