ARC Review of Air (Akasha Book 02) by Terra Harmony


Air (Akasha Book 02) by Terra Harmony

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Terra Harmony on Amazon

I’m sure everyone knows by now that I loved Terra’s first book in the Akasha series. If you have no idea what I am talking about take a look here. Also, if you’ve not read the first book, you may be seeing some spoilers. You been forewarned!

Air is the second book in the Akasha series and is a more than worthy follow-up to Water. The book starts off with Kaitlin’s pregnancy having progressed along. Also, Micah and the others are in hot pursuit of Shawn to shut down his rogue organisation. With no one other than Susan knowing about the pregnancy, Kaitlyn gets sent on the missions as well. These missions are action packed and extremely interesting, but they are just the prologue to what is coming next. As the book progresses and both Shawn and Micah come to know of Kaitlyn’s pregnancy, they are left dumbfounded not knowing whose baby it is. I just loved the scene where this happens. I could literally see the looks on their faces. This is the talent of Terra. She can bring the characters to life, living and breathing right before us.

For today’s post of the week, I have Terra Harmony answering all my questions in the great style of hers. Funny and spunky!

Without, babbling on, I’ll dive right in!

How would you describe your series? What genre would you classify it into?

The Akasha Series consists of four contemporary eco-fantasy novels. The first book, ‘Water’ is published as an e-book.  The second book, ‘Air’ will be published in February 2012, to be followed by ‘Fire’ and ‘Earth’. Above all, the series is a fantasy, though it does carry a larger message, which is where the eco part comes in.

The main character, Kaitlyn, is drawn into an organization called ‘The Seven’ in order to use her newly discovered elemental powers.  The Seven exists to balance the Earth, a job made exponentially more difficult with pollution. Furthermore, views on how The Seven should be run differ.  The antagonist chooses to follow the much darker route of human depopulation.

Review of Water (Akasha 01) by Terra Harmony


Water (Akasha, #1)Water by Terra Harmony

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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. Kaitlyn is a Gaia or ‘Mother of the Earth’ with powers over all four basic elements of nature, water, air, earth and fire. She soon realises that escape is impossible and reluctantly starts her training to become ‘the Gaia’. A romance is thrown in the mix, as Kaitlyn starts falling for her trainer and a whirlwind relationship begins.

Terra Harmony on Life, her Books and some awesome Powers!

First, I want to thank Ritesh for the wonderful opportunity to be the featured author of the week.  What a great way to really get to know the books and the authors behind them! Ritesh has done a wonderful job with the blog – I am hooked!

Now to me. I admittedly always have trouble talking about myself – it feels awkward.  I’ll start with something simple – my name.  Several people have already commented on my author name.  It is, in fact a pen name.  Although my first name is truly ‘Terra’, meaning ‘Earth’, it is actually my middle name, not my last name that is ‘Harmony’ meaning ‘peace’.  Put together, my name means ‘Peace on Earth’. You guessed it – my parents were hippies.  I have to say Terra Harmony was a much better choice than their original idea of ‘Moon Shadow’.
