Before I tell you anything about this book in particular here is a little notice. The first book in this series Water is free pretty much everywhere. So get your copy over at Smashwords or Amazon or some other site. You can find more info on Terra's website.

Now a lot of people asked me about this series cause they mostly like the covers. I do love them too, but in case you wanna know more about first two books you can always check my reviews of Water and Ai

How I interpreted gists of the book:

'It was all baby this, baby that.' -Kaitlyn
'Oh, how wonderful Kaitlyn is so strong-willed' -Kaitlyn, Shawn, Alex
'I want that baby!' -Micah, Shawn
'Protect Bee!' -Susan, Kaitlyn, Shawn, Micah, Ahi and all the other sad sobs.

You know what I heard? A whiny, extremely insecure woman who always has sex with Micah at the back of her mind.
Bee's paternal results were entirely expected but what I do not understand is why Kaitlyn would not want to have another child.

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 Mic

*I would actually rate this one 3.5 stars but rounded up!*

I was super excited to read FIRE after loving the first 2 books of the series, WATER and AIR. But actually I was a little disappointed in it. There just wasn’t much going on compared to the first 2 books which seemed packed full of twists and turns. And for the life of me I couldn't remember why Kaitlyn was hiding her baby from Micah in the first place. Shawn I understood...dude is so messed up in the head. And there was no telling what h
I got a copy for review in exchange for an honest review.

I really have no idea why it took me so long to finally start this. Fire is a past paced, enjoyable story that takes off were Air ended.

The story takes off directly where Air ended. Fire is fast paced and I just wanted to keep reading to find out more. So much happened and I really liked the multiple perspectives in this book wich also gave an idea what the other characters were doing and what was going on in the world. I couldn't put it d

Holy Mother Nature Batman. Our beloved Gaia Kaitlyn proves once again she doesn't need anyone. B. (for baby) is born and it's off to Easter Island. Micah and Shawn ~wonder twins activate... power of insanity!? A truce? I think a just threw up a little in my mouth?! I love the Easter Islanders! Mama makes me happy, and I think Kaitlyn would be content to spend the rest of her life there! Our little fire starter is born! You had to know something EPIC is going to accrue!!

Holy...! *curses* This book was almost my destruction. Full of feeling that threaten my heart. So many anger here that I'm freaking pissed, like for real. Of the first three books, I must say that this one has the worst ending possible. Yeah, I didn't like the end of the second book, but hell! This end was... to die.

Fire takes where Air left, Katie giving birth. We finally meet our little girl friend Bee. That's how Katie's daughter is called. Also we got two terrible issues with this little gir

i waited for this book to come out on ibooks, and it didn't, but i really wanted to read it, then i found out there was an epub version on smashwords, where the author had suggested i get the book, but i wasn't 100% certain that it would work in ibooks, so, get this, the author gave me a code to get the book for free just in case it didn't work...she didn't want me to be out any money. how freakin sweet is that?

anyway, i just started it this morning, i'm on chapter 5, and already i am captivated

This series just keeps getting better. Fire is my favorite so far! The books do need to be read in order. If you are new to the Akasha series, be sure to check out Water and Air. Fire starts where Air left off, jumping right into the action. This one has more than just Kaitlyn's point of view, allowing us to see what is going on with the others as well, which adds to the tension. I enjoyed that. As we get to understand Micah better, I am liking him more. Now Kaitlyn is trying to balance motherho ...more

This book was so good! My expectations were high to say the least, because the first so novels in this series blew me away, and I'm so glad to say that the third book did just the same. There were some parts here and there that we're starting to get dragged along, but the rest of the novel was pretty fast paced other than those parts. The characters were their lovable selfs once again, however Kaitlyn, our main character, seemed to become a bit irritating when a conflict would come about. I am r ...more

I really liked this series. I got book 2 as a read to review. I started with book one so I would know some background for my review and was quickly drawn to this series. It is unlike any other paranormal book I have ever read. I finished this in one day and cannot wait for the final book to come out. I can't wait to see what has happened to Micah this whole time. I would like for Micah and Kaitlyn's relationship to have been explained more. I would like to be able to feel more through these char ...more

Ms Harmony begins this third book with a huge storm and the arrival of a 'bundle' of fire! The ride is 'on fire' from there on in. Kaitlyn struggles to right wrongs, choose a path, deal with what life has thrown her and still save the world. Without giving any spoilers, this is one heck of a book that covers the gamit of human courage, cowardess, strength and weakness and gives us hope for the future and leaves us craving more of Kaitlyn and her minions. It is a fine mix of fiction and reality t ...more

I have to say that I really struggled through the book. I read the first two and enjoyed the story even though each book had issues that bothered me. However, there were several times in reading this book that I thought maybe I just won't finish it. I always knew I would because I have to always finish a book I start, still the thought was still there. This story continues in the battle between the Seven and One Less. Really I have to say I am tired of Shawn always being a step ahead and I am re ...more

As the series begins to arc the writing has begun to even out some. A lot less of the indecisive heroine who couldn't decide what she wanted and the awkward situations that lost any believability to them and instead allow is to feel and see the progression and understand the foundation of the world that's been created.

When it comes to magic of super powers there has to be rules and regulations to fit and while it took a book and a half to establish the rules for Akasha there is finally a flow a

A bit too goey woey with the child-card... The story is too much based on it that changing the direction of would be a huge problem. It would completely fall if we took the baby part out and its sad not seeing this story be able to go a different path, away from that element. I personaly dont like that it was so dependent based on that key. Harmony should have opened the prospect up for a not so closed road.

For some strange reason I want kaitlyn and Shaun to be together... Not mikah. I don't know why but whenever Shaun appears I feel bad for him, and I sort of want him to be part of the family.
I really do like this book but it isn't as good as Air. It's too all over the place, and the scenes need to be a bit more obvious or more descriptive. I had difficulty imagining the surroundings so overall I would rate this book at 3.5
On the contrary, I am really looking forward to Earth.

Its an ok book. A little predictable but still entertaining. I found that didn't have a proper setting as the other 2 books and because of that it lacked a lot of descriptions and was all over the place. There were points of humor through the story and scenes that just gave it that edge to keep reading. It ends with a good cliff-hanger. I do want to read the next book and see what happens next.

LOVE IT! OMG I love Terra's series! This is just amazing. I am not sure what kind of research Terra had to do for this series but I love her brilliant mind! I love the characters and the story line so much!!!

Brilliant third book in the series. leaves you wanting more! I am impatiently waiting for the next book. I can tell you that I am not normally into this style of book but I really got into the plot and can't wait to see how it ends. recommended

Strange read for me. Settling on three stars, but still not convinced. Even read full series before reviewing. Just not sure exactly where I stand. Might just have been too close to possible to be probable. (same review will stand for all books in series)

This book wasn't near what I expected. The time delay through me off a bit too. I was completely surprised by the ending. Haven't yet decided if I really liked the end, the rest of the book was pretty decent.
Five years after reading the series, I still get a bad taste in my mouth. Pretty sure the only reason I finished the series was because the books were free. Not a reread.
