    [PDF/EBOOK] Broken Elements (Elements, #1) 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

Broken Elements (Elements, #1) Read & Download æ 4 Magic murder and mayhem on the shores of Lake Tahoe For Aidan Brook manipulating the power of water is as easy as breathing until the awful night her magic fails with deadly conseuencesThough Aidan tries to outrun her past the grisly murder of an old friend draws her ba. I have been suffering a bit from series hangover I have finished the completed novels of 2 series I really REALLY loved Mercy Thompson and Kate Daniels and have really struggled to find another And then I found this little gem I often find myself lukewarm about the first book in a new to me series After all the author has to introduce us to new characters and set up new situations and create the world within which we are going to immerse ourselves This is no easy task Ms Marshall however manages this ably She jumps us almost immediately into the action and unfolds the world and characters slowly throughout the novel Therefore I never really felt like any particular section is an info dump but rather everything actually made sense in the progression of the narrativeOur heroine Aidan suffered a personal crisis 10 years before the start of our story Since that time she has locked herself away from the world preferring to live isolated away from other people not even allowing contact with those who loved her As the story begins her former best friend appears on her doorstep to tell them the deaths have started again one of their dearest friends has been found murdered This then is they mystery set to solved in the remainder of the tale We discover exactly what happened 10 years previously when Aidan tells the rest of the gang so that they can understand exactly what they are facingI love the relationship between Aidan and Sera The repartee between these two is priceless and freuently brought to mind my sister and my best friend Which means that even if the conversations were not precious in their own right the memories they inspired were And I think that is one of the biggest gifts in this storyThere is a love interest And there are werekin But nary a vampire to be seen and no love triangle at least yet The heroines magic is in being able to control an element While not a totally original concept it is the first I have seen it in this setting so that alone makes the book stand out It is written in the first person which I tend to enjoy for the simple reason that it puts me in the narrators head I like playing head games With characters in novels Not with people in my lifeI hate giving glowing reviews of self pubbed books as they tend to be unhelpful to the reader because so many appear to be friendsfamily of the author So please understand I do not know in any way shape or form the author I absolutely loved this book I d probably rate it 45 stars but as that is not an option I rounded down I may adjust this as the book picks up reviews

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

Broken Elements (Elements, #1) Read & Download æ 4 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
