More About the Author

Angela Wallace has been penning adventures ever since she was sucked through a magical portal as a child. What she saw and whom she met gave birth to exciting and complex fantasy worlds where defying the laws of physics was a bonus. She has since come back down to earth, only to discover this mortal realm has magic of its own. Now she is also quite at home in the world of urban fantasy, though believes that love, faith, and hope are of a stronger magic than fire wielding and sorcery. She loves gun-toting good boys, and could have been a cop in another life except real blood makes her queasy. She'll have to stick to solving supernatural mysteries. Language is her pleasure, whether it's weaving words on a page or lassoing linguistics into translations as a sign language interpreter. Angela is currently working on her next book.

This book has a great setup.

A female elemental with the power to wield water, is put to the test as an evil alchemist tries to gain ultimate power, leaving destruction in his wake.

Awesome.

This book also does quite a job at universe building. You learn all about elementals, where they come from, their place in history. You are told about the reasons why magic and magical creatures aren't seen in the world anymore. Everything makes sense. There is also a limit to what characters can achieve using magic and a price to pay if they try to use too much. There's a reasoning behind the magic as well, kind of.

The characters have limits to what they can do ability-wise which is both an asset and a problem. Yes, the main character isn't all-powerful, which is often considered a good thing when writing a story. The problem is that she spends quite a large part of the book talking about how tired she is, or being knocked out. She is often bruised, battered and scarred. It got to the point where I was thinking about drinking games for this book. 1 shot for every time the main character is knocked on her behind.

What this book isn't: it isn't a romance novel. There is some romance in it, but a lot of it happened prior to the events of the book. We're already in the thick of the main and the love interest's story when we begin. It's the turning point. We're at that part where one asks: Do they become a couple or don't they already? Any flirting that may have happened, unrequited or otherwise happened before. There's a teste of it here and there but only a taste.

Most of the book is concerned with action and the adventure of the main as she battles with supernatural forces. So enjoy it for that.

An interesting premise with too much "young adult" interjected into urban fantasy, which makes the 26+ year old primary character a bit too "screamy, whiney", with conversations that don't seem quite "real".

More research into the Coast Guard, and it's missions, restrictions, and regulations would be in order. Not many CG officers carrying "badges" and sidearms in normal daily activities (searches, boardings, etc being exceptions).
Doubtful that a LCDR would be in charge of what appears to be a small boat station -- Coast Guard vessels are generally termed "cutters" and "small boats".
Also doubtful that a "battalion of CG officers" would appear -- battalion is an organizational term for the Army & Marines -- finding 500+ CG persons within close proximity would be difficult anywhere (but DC).
Also noted was "17 knots" used as a distance measurement -- 'like saying something was "20 mph away". "Knots" is a measurement of speed -- nautical mile (or N, NM, or nmi) are the correct terms/abbreviations.

In general, the story-line expanded well, with sufficient detail to obtain a reasonable background of the people involved. Several of the "action scenes" imagery was unclear, even after several reads.
All-in-all, a good first attempt in this series (and second novel)...

Aileen Donovan is a woman with a few special skills regular humans don't have. As a water elemental, she can manipulate water and communicate with the creatures in the sea. This made it ideal for her to become an oceanographer and work with her father and brother (who are also water elementals) at their research center in Westport, Washington. Though there is a whole society of people with skills like theirs, it is a heavily guarded secret. Aileen is fine with that, but it does become tricky to cover up when paranormal occurrences begin happening in their area. She is good friends with one of the local Coast Guardsmen, Colin, who gets his hands full with a suspicious ship wreck. What she can't tell him is that there is a lot more going on that normal science can't explain. This is further complicated by an attraction she is beginning to have for him.

Aileen finds herself caught in the middle of solving the mystery behind the wreck and why this one is so different from any others. It begins with a simple job of plotting possible locations for where the ship may have sunk, but quickly escalates into so much more. As it turns out, a sea creature thought to be nothing more than a fable has risen from the depths of the ocean and is causing mayhem and destruction. Not only this, but there appears to be key players who want a strange object that was on board the sunken ship. Based on gathered clues, Aileen realizes that the item could be extremely dangerous if it gets into the wrong hands. She and her fellow elementals must find it first before any more innocent people are hurt. This means lying to a man she is falling for and it makes her job all that much more difficult.

Elemental Magic is a light urban fantasy full of intrigue, paranormal, and action packed scenes.

Format: Paperback
I received the ebook from the author after entering the Goodreads first read contest. I want to thank Angela Wallace for gifting me the book. The book was an easy read, the main character a water elemental. Her dashing hero(to be in the beginning) a member of the Coast Guard. While we find out from the beginning that he has a crush on her, we aren't really given any reason why. I offer this as an example of the type of depth I find the book to be lacking. I found the book interesting but lacking in color and details which rendered it a bit flat for me. I prefer more complex writing with ample, varied description to allow me to get a vivid picture of the characters, their emotions, moods, and surroundings. I think this book is probably better suited for a young adult.

I found the sea creature with whom she bonded and had a newly discovered historical tie to be interesting. I felt what drove him was unveiled in layers so that an understanding of him was built for the reader. His presence and importance to Aileen for the most part was nicely depicted.

As I read, I had this nagging feeling from childhood. What was that feeling ? I realized I felt like I was in the world of a 21st century special power possessing Nancy Drew.

I think if you are looking for a beach book based around the sea, then you might enjoy the ease of this book.

Question - Would I read the second book in the series ? Answer - possibly.
