A little about me – I was born and raised in Colorado but have since lived in California, Texas, Utah, North Carolina, and Virginia. I consider myself lucky to have seen most of the states, but that leaves most of the world yet to be seen!

Kaitlyn is carrying a secret that only one other person knows about. She is pregnant but not entirely sure who the daddy is. It could be Micah’s, the one guy who she cares the most for. Or on the other hand it could be Shawn's, the one that kidnapped and raped her. Thankfully she has Micah’s sister, Susan, to confide in. Kaitlyn will have to tell Micah soon though, because you can only hide a growing belly for so long. One of my most favorite scenes in the book is when Micah and Shawn both realize that Kaitlyn is pregnant. Wonderfully, wonderfully done. And what happened soon after had me grinning so big. Only thing is I am not sure how I feel about Micah. I mean I really like him but I am not crazy about his ‘You woman, me caveman’ attitude. He is very hot and cold when it comes to Kaitlyn and how he reacts with her. One moment he is all caring and loving and then the next he is acting all Neanderthal. So less caveman, more feelings and Micah would be prefect. I will say I think I loved AIR more than WATER. And that is really saying something because I LOVED WATER. AIR is not as action packed as WATER was but I think that is what I adored about it. I enjoyed the pace the book took and how during the story Kaitlyn was able to learn more about who she is and what she can do. I also loved the addition of the Shades to the story. Even though I was a bit hesitant about them at first I thought the whole idea was genius. I will say that this author is not afraid to push the envelope. So if you are skirmish when it comes to rape scenes…then thread carefully, there is one in here. Though it is not as horrific as with book one, rape is rape. AIR is an incredible read that had me hanging on to each and every word Harmony wrote. In fact, I am so excited to read FIRE soon so I can see what played out after this crazy cliffhanger we were given here in AIR. I totally recommend this series if you are looking for something different than what’s out there and love a good suspenseful read that is peppered with romance.

Kaitlyn is hiding something huge from everyone, she’s pregnant and the only one that knows is Micah’s sister Susan. Not by her choice though Susan’s element is water so she can tell that Kaitlyn is Pregnant. In Water book 1 Shawn had kidnapped and raped her repeatedly while holding her hostage so she's afraid that the baby may be Shawn's and not Micah's. That’s one of the reasons she is hiding the baby. Since she refuses to tell anyone about the baby she still has to go out on missions hoping nothing happens to the baby or herself. When an Air element comes to stay with them he learns of her secret very fast, and has promised to keep it. But what happens when the person you thought was your friend betrays you in the end? What would you do to keep you and your baby safe from everyone who may or may not want one of you dead? The book certainly picked with action, betrayals, secrets revealed, battles, humor and even more romance! The cliffhanger Is a real killer though and I am dying for the Next book in the series! I loved Air and I hope that you will fall in love with it as much as I did.

If you've not read Water, book 1, it's probably best that you don't read this review as it's likely to spoil the story a bit. This is certainly one series that you need to read in order. In this book, Kaitlyn is hiding the fact that she is pregnant from everyone except Susan, Micah's sister, because being that Susan's element is water, she could tell that Kaitlyn was pregnant. In fact, Susan was the one to initially tell Kaitlyn. But in book 1, Water, Shawn had kidnapped and raped her repeatedly while holding her hostage so she's afraid that the baby may be Shawn's and not Micah's. That's one of the reasons she keeps putting off telling anyone, especially Micah. With a little help from Susan, however, the secret is revealed not only to Micah but to Shawn as well. Now Kaitlyn not only has to deal with being pregnant but her and the rest of the Seven are trying to locate Shawn and put a stop to his plans. While trying to train for battle and study up on anything that will help her learn how to control the other elements that she's not very familiar with, Kaitlyn does something that she thinks will help her greatly, but it has some negative side effects she didn't expect. I felt that the book started out a little slow, perhaps, but apart from that I absolutely loved the interaction between Kaitlyn and Alex, who is the only non-magical one of the bunch. I found myself laughing out loud at some of the things Alex did or said. As for Kaitlyn, there was a time or two where I felt like she needed smacked up side the head for the things that she'd do that ended up backfiring on her. After all, she's pregnant and although she cares very much about her baby, she did things that really could have been harmful. The book certainly picked up though and was a roller coaster of a ride. It's action packed with betrayals, secrets revealed, a serious battle, humor, romance, and a pretty major cliffhanger. I very much enjoyed the story and can't wait to read the third book in the series. NOTE: I received a copy of Air from the author in exchange for a review of book 1 in the Akasha series, Water.

A unique story with potential despite its many writing and character flaws- just nose dived. A wildly jealous, insecure, impulsive, selfish, obnoxious woman makes numerous bad choices before doubling down and making the most reckless decision yet. And two guys (one of which is an emotionally manipulative sadistic rapist that keeps terrorizing the others partner) who also are at odds the entire book call an equally illogical and baffling truce. It's awful and I won't be reading the last two in this cheesy, ridiculous, eye rolling, elementary nonsense. Two stars only because I finished it (mainly in hopes it would get better). Avoid the disappointment and the irritation.

I loved all 4 of these books. It has a refreshing different story line. It will keep you reading even past the end ...

The Akasha series is about Eco-warriors fighting for the Earth. There is a Villain worthy of the title. I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes to read about the Magic in the world we live in, today. Fight the Good Fight!

I really like this series. Although I thought the first book, Water, moved a little slow, it did pick up and I found that I couldn't start Air fast enough. This book has lots of excitement and moves much faster. Kaitlyn has many struggles in this book and learns more about her powers as a Gaia and what The Seven hopes to accomplish. She learns of betrayal, loyalty and love and in the end a big decision is made. The one thing that I did not like so far in this series is that the point of view changes in some chapters and often I didn't figure it out until a few paragraphs or page into the chapter. I found myself stopping and re-reading to try to figure out "why Kaitlyn do that?" or "how could she be talking to this person?" when it wouldn't be her point of view at all. Maybe I'm used to other author's putting in notations at the start of new chapters. The story itself is great and I will continue reading the full series because I couldn't put it down and now after finishing book 3, Fire, I have to know how this story ends. The teaser at the end helps, but it's just that, a teaser. I need the full story! I can't wait for book 4, Earth to come out this Spring! **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honst review**

I got this book for free and really enjoyed it. The sex was a little racey for me at times but the story had me hooked from the beginning. I immediately went of Barnes and Noble and bought the next one in the series, Fire. Cant wait to get the other 2 to finish the series.

Loved it. At first I wasn't sure where it was going with the story line, then a handful of chapters in its all explained. The setting is a group of people that have special abilities and they are trying to save the Mother Earth. There's love and suspense throughout.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Terra Harmony.) This is book 2 in the ‘Akasha’ series, and picks up a short while after the end of book 1 ‘Water’. **Warning – may contain some unavoidable spoilers for book 1** Kaitlyn has a major life change coming up following the events of the previous book, and she’s not sharing it with the rest of the team, even though they’re going to notice sooner or later. Instead the team are focusing on tracking down Shawn, and working out exactly what he’s up to, and exactly where he is. This proves to be even more difficult than they expected, but with Shawn leaving them clues to his location, are they walking into a trap? When will Kaitlyn’s secret come out though? How will everyone react? What exactly is Shawn planning? And is there a method to his madness? This was a great second instalment to this series, and once again blended a mix of different ideas. Kaitlyn has matured following the events of the previous book, but she remains a real fire-cracker, and continues to fight for her own independence and what she wants to do. Kaitlyn is definitely not one to back down from a fight, and although she does sometimes avoid difficult conversations, this isn’t to her own detriment. There wasn’t quite so much romance in this book, partly due to a secret that Kaitlyn was hiding, but Micha persisted in protecting and fighting for Kaitlyn, and it was obvious how much they cared for one another. There was once again both consensual and non-consensual sex scenes in this book, but again I thought that the author handled these more difficult scenes well, and managed to get this part of the storyline over without making the reader feel uncomfortable, which for me was important. Once again this book had a unique mix of storylines, with romance, action, magic, and an environmental message. I felt that the science parts of this story were much more ingrained than they were in the first book, and fitted in with the other storylines really well. It can’t be easy to mix such different themes together in one story, but the author seems to not only manage this, but to actually improve on it in this second book. There was a fair bit of action at the end of this book, along with some twists, an unexpected death, and a very strange and risky decision made by Kaitlyn right at the end. I’m not sure where the author is going with this, but it will certainly be interesting to see what happens to Kaitlyn in the next instalment ‘Fire’. Overall; a pretty unique series, with romance, action, magic, and the elements/environment, and a feisty leading lady. 8 out of 10.
