WATER WITCH (Witches of Etlantium book 1)

When a young witch can't control her own power, someone will control her

Alaysha is a witch with the power to drain living things of their water; the trouble is, that power is so strong she can't control it. Feared and unwelcome, she lives as a jaded outcast on the fringes of her meglomaniac father's city while he uses her as his weapon of war.

A charismatic youth manages to escape her deadly power, leaving her to question her heritage. What she discovers about herself will put her on a dangerous journey of self discovery that will change the world she lives in and lead her to a man who will ultimately make that life worth living.

Meet the Author

Thea Atkinson writes character driven fiction to the left of mainstream; call it what you will: she prefers to describe her work as psychological dramas with a distinct literary flavour. Her characters often find themselves in the darker edges of their own spirits but manage to find the light they seek.

She has been an editor, a freelancer, and a teacher, but fiction is her passion. She now blogs and writes and twitters. Not necessarily in that order.

    I recieved a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. This book was a little slow in the beginning but quickly picked up. It is interesting and kept my attention because I wanted to find out more. Alaysha is a Water Witch who can kill people by taking the water from them and the earth. Alaysha is treated bad by everyone around her including her father. She doesn't know anything about her mothers family history until she meets Yenic, who then gives her information about her family and her powers. I hope this author writes a part two, because I really want to find out what happens with Alaysha, Yenic, her father and her powers.

    Alaysha has been used and abused as a killing machine by her fat

    Alaysha has been used and abused as a killing machine by her father, Yuri the Conqueror. She has undergone brutal training sessions to strip her of any emotional response to the destruction and death she causes with her magic. She's a pawn in a grand scheme, but when she meets Yenic, a survivor from one of the villages she decimated, her worldview begins to change. Alaysha starts down the dangerous path to find out who she really is and to know her heritage, but who can she trust--her father whose love she craves or a stranger who seems to know her?
    From the opening sentence: The call of the vulture is what brought Alaysha back, I was hooked. Brought her back from what? The more I read, the more gripping and all-consuming this book became. I didn't want to stop reading. Alaysha had latched onto my psyche and wouldn't release me until I knew her suffering--the continual pain of rejection she felt at the hands of her father, the utter contempt by everyone in her village and her abject loneliness. A loneliness ingrained so deep within her that it hurts to breathe. This is the masterful storytelling of Ms. Atkinson as she guides you through the story. The secondary characters, Yuri, Yenic and Aedus are just as engrossing and will keep you turning the pages until the final word. This is one of the best fantasy series I've read in a long time. If you're looking to get lost in a world full of magic, angst, deception, love and betrayal, this book is the one to buy. Highly Recommended.

    I really enjoyed this book. A woman writer but the story reads

    More like a mans writing, if that makes any sense to anyone else but me. A great first book, it was a little hard to get into at first but one I did I couldnt put it down. I am actually going to buy the second book right now.
