Water by Terra Harmony

* I was given a free copy of this book for review purposes. The review is based solely on my opinion and was not influenced by author or publisher.

Meet The Seven. A centuries old collection of eco-minded individuals that command the elements in an attempt to maintain the Earth's natural balance. Their motives may be pure but their methods seem a bit archaic.

Kaitlyn, a jet-setting photographer is literally ripped from the life she has made for herself and manipulated into becoming a member of The Seven. She is basically kidnapped, treated like an animal, confronted with some scary, earth shattering truths about herself and then thrust into rigorous training. All that can take it's toll on a girl, but there is one thing that might make it a little better, Micah with his gorgeous green eyes. Any progress Micah makes with Kaitlyn is swiftly unraveled by Shawn, another gorgeous but not so friendly member of The Seven. Cato, current leader of The Seven, appears to be oblivious to the fact that his little organization is coming apart at the seams. Can they really help keep the world balanced when they can't get along themselves?

In her debut novel, Terra Harmony grabs your attention at the first sentence and takes you for a ride that doesn't stop, not even at the last page. The ending of the book is so abrupt that it left me gasping for 'Air', which just happens to be the second book in the Akasha series.

I had a hard time putting this book down. I felt that the story line moved along at a great pace and kept my interest peaked the entire time. Characters were well developed and I loved how the author slowly introduced their backgrounds in bits and pieces. Otherwise I think the information can be a bit overwhelming. This is a must read for fans of the fantasy genre. And as a bonus, the cover art is amazing.

My Rating: 4/5 stars
