Anyways, it was on my amazon cloud, and I finally downloaded it, and oh my goodness!! The book grabbed me from the very beginning... with Tally only as a psychic, and a couple of pretty strange things occurred that were a surprise for her, and she was unaware of what had just happened to her.
Then Roland enters the picture, and just in time, as suddenly someone that Tally has known for sometime.
I was so quickly caught up in this story that I was unable to put it down!
I would happily encourage my friends and fellow readers to get this book!!
However, I have been extremely disappointed that I have been unable to find the other books in the series! I have searched on Amazon, as well as on the web. If you, Amazon, can assist me with finding them I would be very grateful! I was so enthralled with the AIr Singer, it has been frustrating to not be able to see what heppens with her, and the other “singers...the fire singer, the water singer and if anyone has been able to find the earth singer.
It's smoothly written and has well-defined characters and a plot with good movement. The author did a nice job of revealing the history of the cadence and singers as the story developed. I loved that, because it is daunting when you read a book and the author tries to give too much background too soon. The character development was spot-on; you really get a feel for the personality of each character in the book and their relationships. Tally is likable right off the bat and has a great honest relationship with her bestie Kate. Roland is dedicated, smart and handsome and Oliver has his back and his secrets. I'm sure there is a lot more going on with Anna besides her cooking and whip cracking planning.
You would never guess this is the author's debut! It's a smooth read with an interesting and enjoyable storyline, great action and characters you will enjoy. I'm a person who loves to read and this is right up there with some very well known authors. My only disappointment is having to wait so long for the next book in the series!
Yes, it was a pretty standard premise; young woman finds herself with unexplainable powers and a handsome Protector, fighting off Bad Guys. I did like the Elemental theme and the action in this story. There were a few editing errors here and there, but overall it was reasonably well written for a first novel.
I liked the character development. The romance was good yet wasn't overwhelming. The action flowed well, and the ending was great. There is potential for good plots in upcoming books, and yet this ending didn't make me feel like I was hanging.
Good YA material, and adults who like a quick Paranormal Romance should also enjoy it.
Tally is an Air Singer. This is one who can control the air to her bidding. Roland is a protector, a Paladin, whose life is dedicated to protecting Tally from those who want to control all 4 elements and thus control the world. Roland is with a group called the Cadence. They protect the Singers and the world from the Spinas.
This story is very well written. It flows well and is easy to read.
The characters are so well defined that you know who and what they are. You can relate to them as if you were part of the story.
This is a great read and I recommend it highly for ages 18 and up.

First off I realised from the fact there is a sub-title (The Cantors) that it must be a part of a series and, after checking that there were no others published, came to the conclusion that it must be the first book - and I was right. What the blurb doesn't tell you is that when this book finishes it's kind of left hanging and the next isn't due to be published until much later this year (2014) - to be honest if I had realised that I probably would have filed it away to read once book 2 was available OR not downloaded it to start with.
Anyway the book. It wasn't what I was expecting if I'm honest but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It is an intriguing story focusing around Tally, a young woman who has always known she is psychic and works as a Tarot card reader. Now she has now been selected by the Air elemental force to be the next Air Singer - the one person able to control the wind/atmosphere to either protect or destruct. She suddenly becomes the focus of attention for 2 diametrically opposed groups: one seeking to protect her, the other seeking to destroy her.
There is some romance in the story and a very short bedroom scene but there is also a fair amount of violence.
All in all I loved it - just wish I had known in advance that it hadn't been intended as a stand alone.
