One thing I enjoyed in this book were the elements used in it. There was magic, drama, guys, etc. All of this put together with a great story line really grabbed my attention. The story line itself is very exciting to read. I loved to get into the magic and feel everything that the characters are going through. Another thing I like are the characters. Each character is unique and plays an important role. Shay is a great characters. She has a good head on her shoulders, thinks about everything first, figures stuff out, etc. I like how she is loyal to her friends. She is always standing up for them. Her best friends are great too. I like how they all support each other in what they do. They protect each other secrets. The greatest about this book is the old magic in it. I like how it involved into something evil. Shay had to find out who cast the bad spirit and that was a great reading adventure to be on. I like following clues and figuring out what the motive is. It always makes me giddy. Earth is great book filled with so much magic! Once you start reading this you will fall into it easily cause of the great storyline and characters!

Earth pulled me right in from the beginning with its mystery and "who did it" feel. And then it kept me anxiously flipping pages till the end to find out. I kept saying no, no; please don't let it be who I think it is! But what also had me going were the three Elementals. Shayna is the leader of this threesome. She is one seriously tough girl that's going to do whatever it takes to protect her town and classmates from the evil that has come to her peaceful town of Ojai. Jodi and Steven are her two Elementals friends, helping Shayna fight the evil just as soon as they figure who it is. These two are great. Steven with his make-up kit and Jodi with her boss attitude. They are true friends in the fight against evil. Shayna is all business, so when the new boy comes to school, she doesn't make it easy for him. I felt so sorry for Jensen. No matter how hard he tried, he could never get it right with Shayna. But Shayna does like Jensen, so I'm waiting to see where their relationship goes in the next book. Jensen is awesome, he's gorgeous and a good guy. I would've liked to have seen more of him in this story, but I'm hoping he'll get more screen time in the next book. Earth has a fantastic storyline-mystery, magic, elementals, action, and kick-butt teenagers. I was glued to the pages. I highly recommend Earth as definite must read!!!

This was not a good for a self pubbed book. This was a great book period. Right from the first page I lost myself in the story, and more than that, the characters. I cannot stress enough, even the writers I beta for, how important it is to write your teen characters' dialogue authentically. I spend my days listening to my son and his friends talk, and this story was like being in the same room as real life teens. The writing was clean and clear, and flowed perfectly. I didn't pause once and think a sentence could have been written better. And that's a difficult thing for me not to do lol. I loved Shayna. She was just a straight up awesome girl. I liked that she and her friends came into the story knowing of their abilities and powers. It gave the story a deeper plot as they had to figure other things out, just not about themselves. I enjoyed the youthful voice of the novel. I laughed out loud so many times as the characters bantered. It was refreshing. My only issue was there wasn't enough of Jensen, the lead guy. He was a cool, amazing character, and I just simply wanted him to have more 'screen' time. Although, scenes like the one of him and Shayna in the restaurant added so much depth to their relationship. The time they did spend together I felt was enhanced by him not being in every scene. And I loved the way they talked to each other. Although Shayna was very attracted to Jensen, she didn't let that rule her actions. She thought for herself and questions things about him. I liked this very much. Overall, this was a well-crafted YA with a fresh, unique voice and wonderful characters. I could have used a smidge more romance, but the tension and the implied 'this isn't over' there at the end, is enough to make me want to suck down the next book in hopes that I get a little steamy ;) The plot was strong, and it was a great mystery. I recommend this to anyone who likes Wiccan, witchcraft, or Paranormal novels, and is looking for something with great voice and refreshingly authentic characters in YA. Awesome read!

This is an awesome book, for teens as well as adults. It was a fun read, nice new twist on paranormal/fantasy. Cant wait for book 2!

An interesting story that kept my attention & always left me wanting more. Well written, & I loved the mixture of Elementals & occult concepts. I've no clue as to how close it is to real rituals & beliefs, but I really liked it. There was minimal romance (which is refreshing) that didn't distract from the story, & the main characters are mature high schoolers rather than stereotypical ones that do nothing but obsess over "yummy boys". I loved Earth & cannot wait to read Air. Two thumbs up!

While I found it took a bit to get going, once I got into it, the book was fantastic. I can't wait to read the next one in the series.

Book was entertaining with clear cut explaination of "powers" and how they work, tools used, etc.. Very interesting. Although there were moments in the book where the timeline was iffy... i.e. haven't seen someone since (date) wherein the afore mentioned chapter, that someone was interacted with on (date)...
