Synopsis: Elemental powers in the palm of her hand...and it won't be enough to save her.
When Kaitlyn Alder is involuntarily introduced to a life of magic, she becomes part of an organization hell-bent on saving the Earth. Just as her new-found life holds promises of purpose, romance, and friendship, the organization divides and a rogue member holds Kaitlyn hostage.
Now one of the most terrifying men the human race has to offer stands between her and Earth's survival.
Why?: I mean, who wouldn't want to read this book based on that description? Magic, a doomed planet, secret organizations with rogue members and hostage situations, and a terrifying man? Count me in!
Expectations: I'm honestly not sure what to expect. I hope this book is full of magic and all of that jazz and not so heavy on the romance, but I have no clue. Definitely some world-building going on even though it's set on Earth since there's magic and elemental powers and things.
Judging a book by its cover: I actually kind of like this cover. It's not complicated, but it relates well the to the title. The water stands out against the black background really well, and makes it visually appealing. I would probably pick this up if I saw it at the bookstore or the library.
