I liked the character of Capri and the alternate route she is established as the heroine of the tale. She does not have the typical persona of the sword wielding hero most tales do; it is a quiet strength that becomes more bold as she comes in to her own within the story. the way I took it was that the author used her as a lynchpin for the whole thing. When you read the book you will see what I mean Capri is a character that is full of grace, just as the language is very graceful and the interior layout of the book is gracefully done. the whole thing blends perfectly well, the character, like the book, like the story.
it is more than enough to get me to look forward to the second story in the quartet
The whole story was delivered in a laid-back Sunday afternoon kind of approach, but that doesn't mean it was slow or boring in any way. It was beautifully descriptive, but very simplistic making for an easy and enjoyable read. It took me a while to warm up to Capri, but I think it's because I'm more like the character of Blythe. Once I realized just how important Capri was to the whole dynamic of the relationships around her, I fell in love with her. She's just the kind of person I'd love to have as a friend.
There were several prince charming types, a charismatic one and a brooding loner one, readily available to for rescues and romance, but it was the plethora of diverse and dominant female characters that stole the show, so to speak. Always a fan of mythology, I loved seeing how the characters and story plot would play out in this world of Euphorea.
I loved this book from the very first page. I am currently on book three and still, Capri is my favorite. Although Rhia is in close second place for favorites. I loved watching the mystery and romance unfold. I love that it is clean book, meaning no explicit sex scenes. I'm not a prude, but it just seems they are everywhere and it's nice to read a story that can stand without those scenes.
The story develops wonderfully, the characters are full of emotion, and the pace carries along nicely. I want these in paperback for my 'keeper' shelf. I will want to revisit the characters again in the future.
It revolves around Capri, an orphan girl who, on her 18th birthday discovers the truth of her origins and journeys back to Euphora, the enchanted place where she was born. Soon after Capri returns to Euphora though, strange events begin to happen that mirrors what took place soon before Capri disappeared at the age of three. Capri, her friends and her newfound love begin to unravel the mystery of events both past and present in hopes of bringing peace back to Euphora for good.
It is a wonderful first novel for Jennings. Her writing is very descriptive and makes it easy to imagine the world and the characters of Euphora. Speaking of charcters, Jennings give her characters rich histories and interesting personalities. The heroes are very likable and the villains can be quite nasty. Also, there are many characters introduced but I felt that all were developed quite well.
It is hard to believe that Breath of Air is Katie Jennings' first novel. The writing is very good, especially for a first novel and she should be commended for undertaking the daunting task of a four book series for her debut works. I am looking forward to the remainder of the Dryad Quartet series as well as future tales from author who looks to have quite a bright future in front of her.

I liked Capri but for an orphan she is horribly naive. Unbelievably so.Read more
