Shayna and her two best friends have the abilities to manipulate and control the four elements, earth, air, water and fire. While learning to hone their growing powers, they discover a new and malicious presence in their sleepy beach town. Someone is performing blood magic and threatens to expose their small magical community. So far only small animals have been slaughtered, but then the nightmares start.
Shayna suffers nightmares of being chased and sacrificed only to wake up bloodied and bruised. She thinks her magical blood is the ultimate target for the final blood rite. When an innocent girl, Tracy, is kidnapped Shayna knows it's only a ploy to draw her out; she can't let someone die because of her.
One thing I enjoyed in this book were the elements used in it. There was magic, drama, guys, etc. All of this put together with a great story line really grabbed my attention. The story line itself is very exciting to read. I loved to get into the magic and feel everything that the characters are going through.
Another thing I like are the characters. Each character is unique and plays an important role. Shay is a great characters. She has a good head on her shoulders, thinks about everything first, figures stuff out, etc. I like how she is loyal to her friends. She is always standing up for them. Her best friends are great too. I like how they all support each other in what they do. They protect each other secrets.
The greatest about this book is the old magic in it. I like how it involved into something evil. Shay had to find out who cast the bad spirit and that was a great reading adventure to be on. I like following clues and figuring out what the motive is. It always makes me giddy.
Earth is great book filled with so much magic! Once you start reading this you will fall into it easily cause of the great storyline and characters!
I give it 4 BITES!
