Feature and Review Breath of Air by Katie Jennings

This week I am going to do something a little different.  I don’t normally do a lot of reviews, but on occasion, I enjoy a story enough that I get inspired to do one. In this case, four.

Over the next four weeks, I will be featuring and reviewing each book in Katie Jennings, Dryad Quartet series.  A story of magic, elements, love, faults, and struggles as it follows the four Dryads that control Air, Fire, Earth, and Water as they work with Mother Earth to keep the world in balance. You will find muses, fates, and furies in their world and follow them as they move between Euphora and our world and try to stop a demon from destroying them all.

This week I am featuring Breath of Air.

Her name was Capri, and she was Air.
She was born with a gift she didn’t understand. A gift so strange, so remarkable that she had kept it secret for as long as she could remember, despising that it made her different when all she wanted was to be normal, to belong. As an orphan, belonging to someone, anyone, would have been an incredible blessing, one she would have given up all that she had just to get a taste of.
But the truth was that she didn’t belong in the orphanage in Virginia, or even in the United States. In fact, she didn’t belong with human beings at all. Because she wasn’t one of them, not really. She was something much more extraordinary.
She could shift the direction of the wind, create billowing clouds out of nothing, and charm birds into dancing on her open palm. She belonged to an elite group of beings, responsible for preserving the balance of nature and the safety of Earth from an underworld that deserved to be feared, and needed to be controlled. And after years of being lost, she had at last been found, and now the truth of how she had ended up so far from home was becoming horribly clear to her.
But there’s someone who doesn’t want her to return; someone who knows Capri was the only witness to an act of heinous treason and violent murder. And when she begins to search her memories for details of the night she was taken from her home, details that will implicate a killer, she finds herself the unwary target of an otherworldly dark force intent on silencing her by any means possible.

I loved this book. I think because Capri and Rian are my favorites out of all of the characters.  Stolen as toddler, Capri is found fifteen years later and returned to Euphora. She works to find her place among her old friends, finds love with an unexpected person, and comes face to face with the demon who killed her mother and stole her childhood.

I kept seeing it and thinking that I would like to read it. So when it came as a gift, I immediately dove in. I don’t think I stopped reading until near the very end when my andriod’s battery died. I yelled a few very unladylike words at my andriod and put it on the charger. But I couldn’t wait for it to charge, I HAD to know what happened. So, I ended up finishing the last couple of chapters while sitting on my bedroom floor since the charger cord wouldn’t reach my bed.

I loved this book from the very first page.  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.
