Review - Air by Shauna Granger

It was a rough start to the school year for Shayna and her friends, Jodi and Steven, but thankfully summer break is near. Trying to sort out her feelings for the new guy in town, Shayna agrees to let Jensen join her on a group date with her friends. While out they end up at a local coffee house where their classmate, social outcast Jeremy McCormick, is humiliated by his baseball star brother. When Jeremy runs away from the jeering crowd, Shayna and Jodi hear the unmistakable sound of a thousand wings chasing after him, but no one else seems to hear them. These are not like any air elementals that Shayna or Jodi have ever encountered before and they fear Jeremy has gotten himself tangled up in something too dangerous for him to handle. But when Shayna tries to help Jeremy control his magical abilities she realizes it might be the biggest mistake of her life. 

4 stars

Air by Shauna Granger is the second book in her Elemental series.  First off I really enjoy how she is doing the series.  It's not the first time I have seen a series named like this, but what Shauna is doing inside the books really sets her apart.

The same crew from Earth is back with the addition of Jensen as a love interest for Shayna.  It's also great to see Steven back as himself confident and comfortable in who he is.  This time the group finds themselves trying to help out a young man who is a major outcast and has fallen under the influence of some extremely devious and dangerous air elementals.

As this is the second book in the series I will do my usual and keep things fairly short to try to avoid spoilers about this book as well as the first in the series.  Suffice to say that if you enjoy a modern take on magic and urban fantasy with some romance this is a great series for you to check out.

    1. I read in huge binges where I will finish a book every day or two then have to write 10 or more reviews to get caught back up. This just happens to be a time where I am doing more reviewing than reading so I can keep things straight in my head.
