Author: Shauna Granger
Published: May 1st, 2011 by Shauna Granger
Shayna and her two best friends have the abilities to manipulate and control the four elements, earth, air, water and fire. While learning to hone their growing powers, they discover a new and malicious presence in their sleepy beach town. Someone is performing blood magic and threatens to expose their small magical community. So far only small animals have been slaughtered, but then the nightmares start.
Shayna suffers nightmares of being chased and sacrificed only to wake up bloodied and bruised. She thinks her magical blood is the ultimate target for the final blood rite. When an innocent girl, Tracy, is kidnapped Shayna knows it’s only a ploy to draw her out; she can’t let someone die because of her. (Via Goodreads)
Shauna's incredible novel had a mesmerizing fantasy touch to it! I loved the story in all and it was an awesome debut novel! I have to say, Shauna has some serious writing skills! Though Earth is an indie, the novel was as greatly written, and told as any other book.
What I really enjoyed reading in the book was the fantasy! I loved the "powers" and how well each went with the characters. The book had three amazingly written characters! I loved how well they went together and you could really feel each character. Shayna, the main character felt close to me and I noticed her to act sometimes like me and she grew on me a bit. Jensen, Shayna's *maybe* love interest seemed sweet and I hope to see what happens as the series carries on.
Earth had magic, a tough heroine, and well...more magic....! I fell in love with the story and its characters! This a read that I hope all of you will take the time to read.
The is a super-duper, awesome cover! I hope you guys notice how many times I used awesome in this review, cause the book is awesome! I loved the magical essence that model and the background had. If you can look at her eyes, they seem to appear purple like most of the cover. I love covers that pay attention to minor details like that. The eyes were the first thing that caused me to look back at the cover! The font of the title is gorgeous and really pretty!
I give this book:
