At the beginning of the book Water Witch Isabella Novak is full of anger and pain. She's set on hunting down her sisters murderer to get revenge. She even changes her hair color and eye color to be mo ...more

As all hell breaks loose Thomas and Isabelle are sucke ...more
At first, I was really attracted to the idea of elemental witches against evil. But the paranormal side of the story is lamely explained. Most of the time you just forget they are witches because they barely use their powers. Also the romance doesn't feel real. It's so ...more
First of all, the ending was disappointing for me. Without giving any spoilers, I felt that Bast just ran out of energy, or couldn't come up with anything else to really wrap up the story in a way that resolved where she had built it up to. One minute there's da ...more
Her plan had just come to fruition, too, when the leader of th ...more
The plot outside of the sex is pretty good, but it took me over a week to finish this book which was under 400 pages. I can usually crank out a book like that in two days or less if I have more time.
Also, maybe it is just me, but I don't like the male characters to be so force ...more
While there were still some dialogue and cheesy descriptions that bothered me as I read it, this one was just so much more action packed. Additionally, I found myself more invested in the two protagonists and I LONGED for them to be together. I could relate to some of Isabelle's commitment issues and Thomas was... ugh... just the best with her.
I'm just really happy how everything turned out. The ending definitely was unexpected. There was a part at ...more
We have a tortured heroine, Isabelle, the first water witch to get past Stefan Faucheux's defenses, and the Coven's core led by Thomas Monahan was "piggybacking" along her seduction. It was successful at some point. There wasn't any instant sexual attraction between the two but it can't be helped because the earth and water elements jibe together.
The history of demons and the origin of witches were better explained. Isabelle is out for vengeance beca ...more

Our male lead Thomas was introduced in book 1 and nicely developed here. He never proves to be the most dynamic or complicated of characters, but he is a solid, archetypal leader. Isabelle's character is a nice match- the spark over his still waters, if you will. She has plenty of depth, plenty of spunk and easily adopt ...more
Water witch Isabelle Novak must form an uneasy alliance with earth witch Thomas Monahan to hunt and destroy a demon of tremendous power, even though Thomas's very presence stirs deeper desires than she ever knew she had.
"Anya Bast tells a really passionate story and leaves you wanting more...the Elemental Witch series will be a fantastic read." -ROMANCE READER''S CONNECTION "Deliciously sexy and intriguingly original." -ANGELA KNIGHT ON WITCH FIRE

From the first page, I'm totally loving the story. Isabelle is one kick-ass lady (gosh, that scene of what she to Stefan still makes me wince because OMG it must HURT!). She has her baggage, being ...more

When Isabelle first encounters Thomas Monahan, she’s running on pure rage and sorrow, channeling her pain into power—and trying to freeze the life out of a warlock she holds res ...more
The thing is, I enjoy reading them, but after I've put the book down, I've sort of forgotten about it the next day. I don't dwell on the characters, and I can't even really remembe ...more
all in all it was a nice read but not more - unfortunately I am not sure, if I can really define why without spoilering so ...
Thomas was described as very intense, controlled and not easy to show his feelings - but here he comes across like a big Teddy bear and not so much as the head of the Coven ... which was a let-down for me
Isabella was for me difficult to like - I could understand h ...more
I have enjoyed the series. Found my self once again lost in the characters quickly. Claire with her inquire elemental magick of all four elements. Then the added daaemon magick attached to her own. In all the books from the series the heroines are strong, independent women who bring out the crave man hero in their protector. In Claire case it is Adam a strong fire elemental witch with strong healing and empathy.
