Summary ( From Goodreads)
Shayna and her two best friends have the abilities to manipulate and control the four elements, earth, air, water and fire. While learning to hone their growing powers, they discover a new and malicious presence in their sleepy beach town. Someone is performing blood magic and threatens to expose their small magical community. So far only small animals have been slaughtered, but then the nightmares start.
Shayna suffers nightmares of being chased and sacrificed only to wake up bloodied and bruised. She thinks her magical blood is the ultimate target for the final blood rite. When an innocent girl, Tracy, is kidnapped Shayna knows it’s only a ploy to draw her out; she can’t let someone die because of her.
This series is going to be really interesting. I love stories about this kind of magic. I also really enjoyed the mystery that surrounds Shayna. She is an earth elemental but she seemed to be so much more. She was more powerful than her friends and I have a feeling that we are not done learning about some hidden talents from her. I bet there is a lot more to come from her.
I liked her two friends more than her sometimes though. Jodi and Steven were so funny and loyal. I loved how they stayed by Shayna’s side the entire time! Even when she was being a little bit of a brat. Shayna was so headstrong that sometimes she came off kind of demanding and mean. I hope there is some growth to come for her in the next book. I did appreciate that she was able to admit when she was wrong at least.
Earth is full of magic and mystery and it is perfect for this month. I love reading magical books like this close to Halloween. I flew right through the story and it kept my interest throughout. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen next.
I hope to see more of a certain boy in Shayna’s future as well. 😉 This has all the makings to become a really addictive series.
