    1. Thank you to NetGalley for a copy of this book.Anyone out there remember Captain Planet and the Planeteers? Yeah.Ok, imagine that Captain Planet is an annoying young woman, and the Planeteers are misogynistic men.Ta-Da! You now have the plot of this book.This is quite possibly the most craptastic thing I've read all year. I'm actually offended on a cellular level by some of its content, and that's hard to do. I don't offend easily. But this book managed to do it. First, it bored me to tears. It [...]


    2. Where do I begin?! I like to read reviews of books before I actually read them, because there are books that get bad reviews but I end up enjoying. Not this time around. Other reviewers claimed the heroine, Kaitlyn, to be bada$$. I found her to be an annoying, childish brat. I kept questioning her age and going back to remind myself she was in her 20's and not in her early teens. When she is first kidnapped (which I don't understand why that had to happen) she has the right emotions; fear, anger [...]


    3. This is definitely an adult read. Many adult themes, situations, language, violence you name it, it very well may be in there. There was some especially uncomfortable moments in this book. I like the first book in the series overall, and am keen to read book 2, but not right away. It a disturbing book, but in an acceptable way. But I'm also a little disturbed at some of the review quotes of book 2 Micah has a Daemon (from the Lux series) 'look' about him, but minus the attitude. But you never kn [...]


    4. I had never heard of “Water” until I received an email for sign-up reviews. I was immediately dazzled by the cover art. There was something magical about the single drop of water suspended above a lone hand. That was what first drew me into taking a peek at the pages beneath. I was not disappointed. As for being her first attempt it doesn’t show as Terra Harmony had the ability to straight away draw me into Kaitlyn’s story.She seemingly effortlessly moved the story along all while plumme [...]


    5. If the writers of the old Captain Planet TV show had been tasked with writing a book for ‘grown ups,’ they probably would have come up with something very close to this. Simplistic views on environmental issues, cheesy lines all over the place, powers that make no sense, plot lines that spiral off into nowhere, completely gratuitous scenes that require way more tact than this book is capable of… If you can’t tell, I wasn’t a fan of Captain Planet.But that show, much like this book, had [...]


    6. I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Water from the author in exchange for an honest review. Like the fluidity of water, the story continually evolved from one simple concept of a girl being held captive, to her becoming a Gaia (a controller of the elements) in order to save the environment, and more. Environmental issues are a topical issue, and having a controller of the elements to deal with these issues is definitely a unique and relevant take on the paranormal genre. I was hooked on the [...]


    7. Terra Harmony blew my brains into tiny bits, patched them back and blasted them with a shotgun, over and over again.You wouldn't believe that Water was the author's debut novel. I was stunned by the amazingness of the story and even more by the writing. This might be one of the hardest review I ever written because I don't think my words could even cover an inch of my thoughts on this book, so for the heads up, I try to keep this review as professional as I could but do not be surprised if I had [...]


    8. I'm the type of person where if I start reading, I HAVE to finish the book. I've never felt more disinclined to finish a book than I have with Water. If there was, I can't remember because this book will probably stay in my memory as the book that I KNEW I would hate just from reading the first few chapters. I was a bit apprehensive when I started reading because of the warnings about a rape scene, but I was hoping it'd be a dynamic read in the end. Sadly not. The first chapter or two drew me in [...]


    9. In all honesty, I haven't finished this book yet. If I ever finish it, I'll be sure to edit this review.The reason I haven't is because I just couldn't stomach the characters, or the events for that matter. The majority of the story felt like a summary. Events were skipped and only mentioned in a very insufficient way! And those that were mention were either quite boring, completely unbelievable, or unrelated to the story line.At the beginning of the story, a couple of memory flash-backs were ir [...]


    10. This book read like what it was: a self-published eco-fantasy that must have seemed like a good idea at the time. With some more editing, and a rewrite here and there the prose could have been passable, and perhaps some of the story could have held together more believably. I managed to suspend my disbelief for long enough to finish the book - but only just. What was an interesting concept (powers derived from the elements, a team of eco-defenders) got bogged down with the practical details - wh [...]


    11. Kaitlyn Alder is a seemingly unlucky young woman. No family. No brothers or sisters. Her parents are dead and she is about to be buried alive in an avalanche of snow as she snowboards down a mountain trying her best to get out of the way of the dragon at her heels. Great opening, huh?I thought so. I didn't stop reading until almost dawn. This is the opening volume of a four book series revolving around a group of environmentalists called The Seven that can manipulate, magically, forces of our pl [...]


    12. I read this book because the author is looking for people to write honest reviews for the second book in the series, and I wanted to get into the story first. I will say, the idea of the story is a decent one. I do like the idea of elemental powers, if it's done right. This book needs a whole lot of fleshing out though. Character development is a problem. We don't ever get a really good sense of who the main characters are. They also often don't react appropriately to horrible things that happen [...]


    13. What I liked:the whole idea about people close to nature & how they could draw energy from it was interestinge story started well and kept my interest as it progressede cover is really pretty!What I didn't like:the Seven were short on funds much so that they didn't eat too well most days, yet they could travel all around the world?I don't think causing an increase in the phytoplankton population can be that easy and even if it was, there are always consequences when humans think they know be [...]


    14. Yes - I'm reviewing my own book, and yes - I gave it five stars. I'm not cheating, it is really that great my humble opinion, anyway. I have to say the book has been through a few minor revisions since I first published it. Based on feedback, I sent it through more editing rounds which I think really helped.I also have to say, this book is definitely 'adult only'. There is sexual content, some of it non-consensual. If you are sensitive to that, this book may not be for you.My book, above everyth [...]


    15. This review is posted on Ja čitam, a ti?Oh how much I love when book manage to surprise me! This is one of them.This story is something new for me. The story still contains magic elements but in the same time is really realistic. Story about elements is not new. We all know about four basic elements and fifth spirit element and also story about Gaia is not new, but what is new (at least for me) is that the author put those elements together nicely. Not just that she also created relations betwe [...]


    16. Kaitlyn Alder is introduced to a life of magic, she becomes part of an organization hell-bent on saving the Earth. Just as her newfound life holds promises of purpose, romance, and friendship, the organization divides and a rogue member holds Kaitlyn hostage. Now one of the most terrifying men the human race has to offer stands between her and Earth's survival.This was an amazing storye action begins right from the beginning of the book, having you hanging on the edge of your seat. The author ha [...]


    17. WOW! This is a great beginning to a new series. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the next one in the series.Terra does a great job of developing characters and story that are completely believable. The fear, skepticism, anger and curiosity all expressed by Kaitlyn make her seem like one of my friends. (view spoiler)[ I fell in love with Micah right along with her and then I hated him with her as well. I think I hated him longer than she did! I could see the conflict with Shawn e [...]


    18. English Review: This book was a quite roller coaster of my feelings, as well of my enthusiasm for it. I have won it at a Giveaway on a Blog and I started to read it without any informing what it is about exactly. At first it was very difficult to come into the story, because it begins right in the middle and I had no clue who the protagonist was, where she was and in which world the whole story played. I got the information presented only in little pieces, and after the first confusion vanished [...]


    19. Water is the first book in the Akasha series by Terra Harmony and it is a huge… massive… humungous first book! Well, you now know the direction in which this review is headed.The action in the book starts right on the first page, with the protagonist, Kaitlyn caught in an avalanche. She is rescued by the Seven, but finds herself captive in an unknown location. She is soon given the reason of her abduction and that is where the book turns from a mystery to an eco-fantasy. Kaitin is a Gaia or [...]


    20. *I received this book for review from the author*This book is Awesome in a sad twisted wayWhen I got to the first few chapters I was a little skeptical on where this was going and most of all will it keep me interested? Yes IT DID!!!I really enjoyed this book! The concept of the story is truly authentic to anything I have read to date. I have never been so conflicted while reading a book until I read this one. In the beginning I was a bit thrown off by what was happening because the author just [...]

    22. Disturbing, really disturbing and not in a good way. I mean having those elemental powers is a great idea for me. That's the one thing that kept me reading this book. But the rest, I don't even know. I have mixed feelings with this book and most of it is disappointment. It's just that all the things that happened to Kaitlyn really frustrates me. The supposed rape scene, the real rape scene. I don't like it. The words used weren't that violating or anything but just thinking about it, I don't kno [...]


    23. I'd like to thank Shut Up and Read group and Terra Harmony for the chance to read and review this book.The premise of the story, the amazingly beautiful cover and recommendations from a few friends who had rated the book highlyand are what made me want to read Water. First of all, I like Terra's writing style. Reading this book was easy and most often fun.That being said, I didn't connect with the story or the characters as much as I wanted to. Don't get me wrong, the story is good, but a few th [...]


    24. This book started with a bang and finished on one. I loved the energy contained in Terra Harmony's writing. The premise of the book is unique and I was immediately pulled into the Chakra's world. My only issue was with Kaitlyn, the cocky and kick ass heroine. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love a heroine who can hold her own but at times she came across as flippant rather than just cocky. There were situations where her cocky responses just seemed out of place. I would have connected more with [...]


    25. If you have a problem with the word "shit", don't continue reading!The plot is shit.The world-building is shit.The characters are shit.The elemental magic is shit.Just everything is shit about this book.I only managed to finish this by skimming through the pages.


    26. From: readingandwritingurbanfantasy.At a GlanceWater is the kind of book that drove me a bit crazy. I never knew how I felt about it. I kind of wanted to dislike it, but then I loved it at the same time. After I was done, I was shocked by what I just read. And even though there were many things that bothered me about this book, I couldn't help but think about it long after I put it down--in a good way. The GoodHere's the StoryAll of Kaitlyn's escape attempts have failed. This organization will n [...]


    27. Water was very entertaining and well written. I connected with the characters, and I found it to be a very quick read!One thing that is a "must" for me when I read books is the characters. I need to like the characters for me to enjoy a book. As you may have guessed by the rating, I did very much like the characters! They were realistic (given the world) and I appreciate how they were flawed and how consistent their actions were with their characters. We learned more about them as the book progr [...]


    28. This was my FIRST EVER buddy read with the fantabulously awesome Lily (The Novel Nerd)! Her reviews can also be found on her nifty blog, lilythenovelnerd.wordpress/"Saving the world is dirty work."Kaitlyn Alder is a free spirited girl who travels the globe and captures the world at the end of a camera lens. During a skiing accident where she is caught in an avalanche, she is rescued by a top secret ecological organization who will stop at nothing to preserve the Earth and her elements. Will Kait [...]


    29. I wanted to like this book, because it was given to me via NetGalley. To this book's credit: 1) It warns the reader that there is non-consensual sexual activity, right up front. I'm glad I had that warning, though I probably should have gone with my first instinct and put the book back down immediately--again, though, it was an ARC, and I felt like I owed it to the publisher to read it with an open mind. So I did.2) It jumps right in to an action sequence, which is fun. 3) It draws the reader in [...]


    30. (Source: Downloaded for free from )Kaitlyn thinks she’s dead when she’s swept up in an avalanche while snowboarding, the last thing she expects is to wake up locked in a small room which looks nothing like a hospital. Deciding to try and escape, Kaitlyn breaks out through a small window, and puts up one hell of a fight when once again cornered, but there’s no easy escape for her, especially when she finds out that the people who are holding her have cleared all her stuff from her apartment [...]
