Nice conclusion to the "Watersong" series

I really enjoy all of the Amanda Hocking books I've read so far, and would consider this one of her better series. Her writing style is clear and natural. I find the character development in this series to be compelling and real; the characters act "true to their nature...
I really enjoy all of the Amanda Hocking books I've read so far, and would consider this one of her better series. Her writing style is clear and natural. I find the character development in this series to be compelling and real; the characters act "true to their nature". I don't love this series as much as I loved the "Trylle" series, but I think its far superior to "My Blood Approves". Without giving too much away unnecessarily, I don't think there are any huge surprises here, but I still find myself rooting for the "good guys", and for Gemma, and I was still interested and excited in seeing how the events played out. Interestingly, this series(and this book in particular) had less of a melancholy feel. In both the Trylle and Blood series, even though the main character "won" in the end, it was with a caveat...something was still lost. I felt that this book cleaned things up more neatly and completely, so I felt less of the lingering sense of doom. Be sure to read the previous 3 books in the series first - "Wake", "Lullaby", then "Tidal". Also don't miss "Forgotten Lyrics" which is a little slice off Daniel's backstory, and a shorter novelette(55 pages on my Nook). I read this earlier, then re-read it after finishing "Elegy" to clear up some lingering questions I had. If you're a fan of books like "Twilight" - but more well-crafted and smarter - then you'll probably like this series. I've become a huge Amanda Hocking fan!

Wow

While i loved this series of books and characters, as a mom of two girls i cannot condone a 16 yr old having sex. And i def cannot condone young girls reading about it no matter how much the 16 yr old is in love with the boy. I get it but that part could have been left ...
While i loved this series of books and characters, as a mom of two girls i cannot condone a 16 yr old having sex. And i def cannot condone young girls reading about it no matter how much the 16 yr old is in love with the boy. I get it but that part could have been left out or insinuated or something. My girls are still just 6 & 8 but i wouldnt want them reading this when they were 16 either. I just dont think its appropriate. And the thing is up until this book they were pretty clean. I think there should be a tidied up version of this one for the younger adults that read the other three books.
