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.
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.Read more ›
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 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.Read more ›
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.

Heroine is a bit young and clueless for my taste. Squeaks a lot; however I bought others in the series because it's good enough to have promise.Published 23 months ago by Wanda L. Pease
Started out with a lot of potential, but the characters never developed. They were so flat and immature that the story never got a fair chance. Read morePublished on July 30, 2014 by Just Me
