I found the first book in this trilogy by accident and was so glad I did. I've always been in to horror (King, Koontz, Masterton) and history/ghost (Erskine) but never myth magic and fantasy. Now I'm hooked! The first book was good, the second great. I just had to read it every moment I could.
4 Elementals with such different characters, their soul mates and a variety of creatures, it makes a nice change to just vampires or just werewolves that's out there now. Easy to read and easy to keep track of who's who, just not so easy to put down.
It made me laugh, it made me cry, now I just can't wait to see what happens in the third instalment. Well worth a read. Keep up the good work.

After re-reading The Arrival just to make sure I knew where I was with everyone (well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!) I was totally immersed in the second part of this so far brilliant trilogy. Some unexpected twists certainly added to the excitement and the new characters fit well with the story without taking away from the originals. Finished on a real cliffhanger and I kept pressing the next button to see where the rest was but that's all part of a good book to my mind, leaves you waiting for the next installment! Now if I could just sleep for 12 months till the next installment is available I would be a happy bunny :D

I really enjoyed this book - I don't know whether it was all down to the fact that I had read the first one, but I thought that it was much easier to follow. Each of the characters voices seemed to be easier to differentiate. So whilst there was a lot of first person narrative form various characters, it wasn't as confusing as the first book.
I really enjoyed how the author has taken very modern women and put them into an almost medieval setting, and left all the men to cope with their attitudes! I'm really looking forward to the last instalment! Can't wait!!
