Air (Akasha Series #2) - Terra HarmonySaturday, February 18, 2012
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.
After experiencing through the jaw dropping cliffhanger in Water, I had my jaw reset and was too excited to continue where the story left off, only to have another cliffhanger that had me running to the doctors again.
If Water was amazing, Air pushed the boundaries of epic. I thought it was impossible to love the story and the characters even more, but Air proved me wrong. I learned to not expect anything when I'm reading Terra's books because she will completely blindside you! One thing I love about the characters, especially Kaitlyn and Micah, is how impulsive they could be. You could hardly figure out their next move and certainly not from the Queen of Spontaneity - Kaitlyn. I had numerous Oh-my-god moments throughout the book and the story was a book of unpredictable twists.
Originality, the prime reason why The Akasha series appeals to me so much. I was impressed by the new terms that was introduced in Water, I just couldn't understand how Terra could come up with the unthinkable . I mean, who installs GPS in trees? Terra Harmony raised environmental awareness in style! And that is what I liked about it.
Kaitlyn has officially become my idol. Impulsive, kickass and straightforward, Kaitlyn is what I am looking for in a heroine. I like her attitude of 'No Bullshitting' and 'Cutting straight to the point', she was not afraid to stand up for herself or take things into her own hand. After the shocking announcement that she was pregnant, Kaitlyn changed from a young lady becoming a Gaia to a mum. A transition that I never expected to see from Kaitlyn. I love the extreme measures that Kaitlyn would take for the safety of her baby.
And Terra ended the story with one of her signature style. CLIFFHANGER. I swear, someone should present an award to Terra with the title 'Queen of Cliffhangers'. If you hate cliffhanger endings, then I believe Terra could change your mind. I am not exaggerating.
Terra makes elemental powers sounds so cool. What's not to like about the book?
