Fire (Akasha, #3)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Elemental magic is a weapon of power, on both sides of the war.

The Seven has another leader, Kaitlyn is a new mother, and everyone is busy building their armies. During one battle, the secret to Akasha is discovered, and the race to master it is on. With all eyes on the prize, what matters most gets left behind. It is up to Kaitlyn to preserve the planet in the wake of the pure destructive power of Akasha, and the humans who wield it.


Fire by Terra Harmony

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Fire (Akasha, #3)(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Terra Harmony.)
This is book three in the ‘Akasha’ series, and picks up where book 2 ‘Air’ left off. **warning – some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 & 2 (Water and Air)**
Kick-ass Kaitlyn is now piloting a boat, through a storm, whilst in labour! Knowing that it’s the only way to keep her daughter safe, she’s running away, not only from Shawn who kidnapped her, but from her almost-husband Micha.

Can Kaitlyn really keep her baby safe all on her own though? What will happen to the seven with both Cato and Kaitlyn gone? And will the baby take after her mother and be the next Gaia?


This was an action packed instalment in this series, and I enjoyed every moment of it!

Kaitlyn was clearly doing what she felt was best for her daughter, she has always been a strong character and really showed it again by selflessly putting herself in danger to protect her daughter. I have to give Kaitlyn her dues for this, she always does what she wants to do, and what she needs to do, and doesn’t let other people get in her way.

Kaitlyn and Micha’s relationship suffered a little in this instalment - seeing as she ran off with their baby! But it really did seem like they would overcome their differences, and work together to raise their daughter as safely as possible! I did feel sorry for Micha when Kaitlyn left, but I could also see why she did it.

There were a few surprises in store regarding the baby (of course), and we actually learn what the babie’s powers will be, and who her biological father is! I also have to say a well done to the author for writing about a woman who breast feeds, and in a positive light! Although I’d expect nothing less of someone who’s trying to save the world!
It was the naming of the baby which was most funny though, Kaitlyn didn’t want to name her without Micha’s imput, so she started calling her ‘Bee’ – for Baby! When someone asks if ‘Bee’ is short for something, and Kaitlyn replies ’Baby’ she certainly gets some strange looks!

There was no shortage of action in this book right from the get go, and the seven this time started to expand and really work together to put up a strong front against their enemies. The big battle and the end of this series is looming now, and I can only assume that we will see more action in the last instalment - Earth!
Overall; an exciting paranormal adventure.
7.5 out of 10.

  2. I am really happy you are enjoying this series. Even though I didn't like the last book, I have been wondering about the baby.
