The brilliant last uarter of this book with three major twists by my count or a triple twist with a bunch of secondary twists raises my rating from a very weak three stars to a weak four Before that happens although the story begins uite nicely with an unwanted reunion bad news and a plunge into radically different species it proceeds to writhe its way through the emotional issues of the first person narrator Aidan Brook who doesn t seem terribly mature despite her age of 65Aidan is an elemental you see destined to live for centuries so even though she lived on an island in Puget Sound or Georgia Strait among her own kind for the first forty years when she shucked that life and chose Lake Tahoe it seems she was barely ready for college and psychologically somewhere in junior high That s just my interpretation of the backstory that s brought out in sporadic references as she takes us through her adventure which or less resembles what s said in the publisher s back cover blurbThere are repeated references and flashbacks to that horrible night ten years before the events that drove her into self imposed exile deep in the Oregonian forest An elemental killer is once again murdering her friends the blurb correctly states Just don t expect everything to be as it seems on the back cover Most of the present mystery and the past events lie deep in spoiler territory and much of the world that the author has built and this is the meat of the story is revealed piecemeal throughout the novelHere s what we know near enough to the beginning to avoid spoiler tags Elementals are enough like humans to interbreed but they live for centuries or longer they inherit their powers over one of the four elements earth water ice and fire not air and they prefer to breed within their own kind and may live side by side with their many times great grandchildren Aidan is a strong water elemental like her mother but views herself as broken blaming her unknown father for making her partly human so that her powers desert her at critical times To solve the mystery and stop the killer she must join old and new friends back at Lake Tahoe but must also uncover the truth about her own pastHer elemental friends there are Sera strong fire Vivian low level earth and Brian weak ice two new friends are Simon a cat shifter and Mac a bear shifter see the front cover and find Simon and Mac The six occupy a cabin owned by Sera s father strong fire as they try to prevent murders Aidan learns that shifters have a natural history similar to that of elementals and a prehistoric origin in common with them The heavy information load is fairly deftly distributed through story telling and conversations including arguments among the six friendsThere are also two barely believable FBI agents remember Tahoe is an interstate lake shared by California and Nevada naturally baffled by murders that could only be done by elementals frozen hearts lungs full of earth no further evidence The agents have very interesting interactions with Aidan and SeraNo spoilers but to keep you from putting down the book before you get past all the parts that should have been edited out I need to tell you that much of Aidan s inner torment and mystification and many of her seemingly irrational actions make sense at the end For me those major twists were worth the slog through the rest of it

Broken Elements (Elements, #1) characters ´ 108 Mia Marshall ð 8 characters Ler grows increasingly fixated on Aidan her past and present begin to collide To defeat the killer she must learn to control her power before her broken magic fails her for the final timeBROKEN ELEMENTS is the first book in the award winning Elements urban fantasy serie. 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
