Aileen Donovan is an elemental with magical control over water. When Aileen finds a mummified body at a scientist’s convention in Seattle, she suspects supernatural foul play. Her amateur sleuthing, however, isn’t the romantic getaway her human boyfriend, Colin, had in mind. Breaking into crime scenes and fending off black magic doesn’t really set the mood.

Our favorite elemental has gone and done it again! This time with Colin by her side, she meets up with mummies, vampires, hydras and witches. Just when you think everything is calm, the author takes you on a fast paced roller coaster ride straight to the end of the book and keeps you on the edge of your seat! Dry Spell will keep you longing for the next book. If you liked Elemental Magic, this is a must read.

I didn't read the first book of the series but I was able to slip into Dry Spell quite easily. The main character, Aileen, is easily likeable -- she's a little self-depreciating and her sarcastic quips are smart and entertaining. Though the story becomes more dangerous with each page, the book never gets overly dark and oppressive. I suppose it's hard to get too dark when the majority of the sleuths are amateurs who make rookie mistakes, but I enjoyed that aspect. It gave the story a lot of ...more

This book kept me turning pages, wondering how Aileen Donovan and her entourage of humans, vampires and fellow elementals would solve the murders. The best part was I hadn't read Elemental Magic, vol 1, but I didn't feel lost. The next best thing was that this wasn't a book that ended in the middle of a crisis in hopes you'll buy the next book just to find out what happens. The story ends, but leaves you wanting more.

I absolutely loved the serial killer's struggle with her relationship with God

As with the first book in this series, this one continues the stories of the Elementals. This book went further in introducing witches and vampires. As with the first book, the views of the author differ from mine and I was disappointed in her presentation of witches. Mainly in how witches came to be and how they are viewed by Elementals. Setting that aside, the plot was good with twists and turns that keeps the reader engaged. The characters from the first book continue in this one and new ones ...more

I enjoyed the first book in this series. That said, I was extremely disappointed when vampires showed up in this one. I wish we had gotten to learn more about life as an elemental instead of heading off into cliche-land. I found so little to interest me in this book that I stopped reading about halfway through it. Very disappointing.

I love the way Angela Wallace writes. Insightful, well-thought out plots, and characters who are believable. Great read.

Yeah, this was somewhat boring, just like the first one. Don't think I will read the next one in this series

This book followed a similar line as the first book, but it wasn't done quite as well. Despite that it was an easy ready, quick and fun.

Read it if your an avid reader and pass if you're not.
