review É E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ö Mia Marshall Mia Marshall Ö 9 Summary Read Broken Elements (Elements, #1) Ler grows increasingly fixated on Aidan her past and present begin to collide To defeat the killer she must learn to control her power before her broken magic fails her for the final timeBROKEN ELEMENTS is the first book in the award winning Elements urban fantasy serie. Broken Elements had a lot of biases to overcome with me I ve always maintained that I don t like first person PoV I don t like urban fantasy I prefer to have my fantasy in a totally made up world not my own and I am not a huge fan of shifters Broken Elements has all three So when I say this ended up being a really enjoyable read you know the writer must have done something rightFirst of all it s a very polished professional product I know that sounds odd when talking about what is essentially an artistic endeavor but I have read uite a few self published or first time writings of late that were poorly edited clumsily put together and made me wonder just what the person was thinking by presenting their work to the world No worries here Even the cover has a professional look to it not just a canned photo with a bad font stuck on it It has almost a layered paper cut out look to it and the you look at it the you seeSecond the dialogue is entertaining without being overwhelming I reviewed another book recently where there was lots of snappy dialogue and inner thoughts but it was so unrelenting that it became wearisome instead of entertaining Not so with this book The back and forth between the characters seems much natural and stops when there is an actual serious conversation that needs to take place I laughed audibly several times throughout the book and that is a rarity for me The PoV character is likable a real must when you don t have any other PoV to turn toThird the story itself is interesting There is a murder mystery involving a serial killer that our heroes are desperate to solve since their friends are dropping like flies and the murders themselves point to an elemental being involved about half the characters in the story are elementals I figured out fairly early on who the culprit was but there were other twists in the story that made up for it Who Ms Brook s father turned out to be surprised me and made me happy since he was one of my favorite charactersOkay so that still leaves a couple of things that would normally get up my nose the urban fantasy genre and the shifters The story takes place primarily in Tahoe in a small area with cabins and camping This lends itself to isolating the characters and making it harder to track the murderer I was happy that I didn t have to wade through another Seattle or New York setting The world is big and full of interesting places no need to always set a story in one of the overdone cities Urban fantasy also has a tendency to be very Mary Sue That wasn t nearly so apparent in this story Thank you Our heroine is flawed she s not super woman and while her love life is involved in the plot it isn t overpoweringThe shifters are a bit different from what I m used to This isn t the clan of werewolves that stink up the book world these days These are people who are mostly loners thus far I m told there are otter shifters in book two and it s hard to imagine otters as loners One chap turns into a large black bear and the other turns into a small house cat Simon the cat is especially entertaining He has a penchant for lounging around nude and is truly oblivious to why anyone might be uncomfortable with thatOverall I was uite happy with the book It wasn t too long it wasn t too short left room for seuels but solved the primary mystery at least for now I m giving the story five stars I will be reading the second book soon

The brilliant last uarter of this book with three major twists by my count or a triple twist with a bunch of secondary twists raises my rating from a very weak three stars to a weak four Before that happens although the story begins uite nicely with an unwanted reunion bad news and a plunge into radically different species it proceeds to writhe its way through the emotional issues of the first person narrator Aidan Brook who doesn t seem terribly mature despite her age of 65Aidan is an elemental you see destined to live for centuries so even though she lived on an island in Puget Sound or Georgia Strait among her own kind for the first forty years when she shucked that life and chose Lake Tahoe it seems she was barely ready for college and psychologically somewhere in junior high That s just my interpretation of the backstory that s brought out in sporadic references as she takes us through her adventure which or less resembles what s said in the publisher s back cover blurbThere are repeated references and flashbacks to that horrible night ten years before the events that drove her into self imposed exile deep in the Oregonian forest An elemental killer is once again murdering her friends the blurb correctly states Just don t expect everything to be as it seems on the back cover Most of the present mystery and the past events lie deep in spoiler territory and much of the world that the author has built and this is the meat of the story is revealed piecemeal throughout the novelHere s what we know near enough to the beginning to avoid spoiler tags Elementals are enough like humans to interbreed but they live for centuries or longer they inherit their powers over one of the four elements earth water ice and fire not air and they prefer to breed within their own kind and may live side by side with their many times great grandchildren Aidan is a strong water elemental like her mother but views herself as broken blaming her unknown father for making her partly human so that her powers desert her at critical times To solve the mystery and stop the killer she must join old and new friends back at Lake Tahoe but must also uncover the truth about her own pastHer elemental friends there are Sera strong fire Vivian low level earth and Brian weak ice two new friends are Simon a cat shifter and Mac a bear shifter see the front cover and find Simon and Mac The six occupy a cabin owned by Sera s father strong fire as they try to prevent murders Aidan learns that shifters have a natural history similar to that of elementals and a prehistoric origin in common with them The heavy information load is fairly deftly distributed through story telling and conversations including arguments among the six friendsThere are also two barely believable FBI agents remember Tahoe is an interstate lake shared by California and Nevada naturally baffled by murders that could only be done by elementals frozen hearts lungs full of earth no further evidence The agents have very interesting interactions with Aidan and SeraNo spoilers but to keep you from putting down the book before you get past all the parts that should have been edited out I need to tell you that much of Aidan s inner torment and mystification and many of her seemingly irrational actions make sense at the end For me those major twists were worth the slog through the rest of it

A cracking mystery with great characters and a fascinating world of elemental magic users I really enjoyed this The mystery element was so very strong and compelling You could get away with calling it Urban Fantasy but perhaps Paranormal Mystery would also work as it was so centred around that aspect It had a great cast of characters awesome magical abilities and some surprises you just won t see comingThe story is presented in the 1st person through Aidan Brook f a water Elemental someone who can control water call it from the air or from a direct source and basically make it do anything she wants who has been in exile for the last decade after a tragedy forced her to leave behind everything she once knew including her best friend a fire Elemental called Sera I was pretty much hooked from chapter one After a brief introduction to Aidan and her current situation a blast from the past in the form of her one time BFF sends her whole world off kilter and the mystery that drives the book is revealedI thought the writing was excellent intelligent witty thought provoking It immediately showed the interesting but highly awkward friendship dynamic that is left after Aidan s 10 year absence Even starting out cold not knowing these character at all yet I felt the tension and lost years stretching between the two Watching the former best friends walk that shaky line between wanting to fall back into their old familiar habits and camaraderie but holding back through fear of being hurt again It was great stuffI found the character voices were very clear and distinct It ended up being a really diverse bunch of people and supernatural races once the motley crime solving crew was fully assembled and I enjoyed each character in turn The secondary ones were just as well drawn as the main two and I particularly grew fond of Simon The reason for their gathering is that they led by Sera have all decided to join forces to end this mystery Elemental s killing spree once and for all The killer is not being careful about revealing them to the human population and that puts them all at risk It was bad enough when it was happening 10 years ago and Aidan s been having nightmares about it ever since She can barely believe it s happening again But when Sera reveals that another of her close friends second only to Sera has been murdered Aidan has no choice but to return to the scene of the killer s and her crimesI thoroughly enjoyed learning about the magical abilities of the Elementals and Shapeshifters complete with their full and fascinating origin stories There were several expertly dispersed sections of backstory and species history I could see the sections coming but rather than feeling like I needed to prepare myself for a dispassionate info dump it was done deftly through conversation sometimes in a story telling format or other times just through the narrative and felt perfectly natural Also cleverly interspersed were the clues suspicions and conjecture regarding the elemental killer s identity and motivations I did manage to correctly guess one of the big surprises but was TOTALLY side swiped by another Which was awesomeIf I could wish for anything it would have been for indications of the budding romantic feelings between Mac and Aidan I don t mind a slow forming romance at all but while I m waiting I love watching all the little clues gestures and lingering looks etc So there could have been a whole boatload of that for me Also a bit emotional connection to Aidan which may come naturally over the series as I get to know her To sum up if you love a good mystery and powerful magical abilities and can appreciate well crafted characters get this bookHighly recommended to fans of Amanda Stevens Graveyard ueen series UF for grown ups4 Stars Review Copy Received from the author for an honest review
