Nature’s Elementals—Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water—have lived for countless millennia. Disguised as humans, they are charged with one mission: protect the innocent from fallen angel clans, who reap human souls and force them to do their bidding.

Brooke, a Water Elemental stationed in New Orleans, broke the rules once—she mated with a human. For her indiscretion, she is forbidden to share a life with her loved ones: NOPD officer Alex and their half-breed daughter, Ella.

Now Ella is about to turn sixteen, and the local clan of fallen angels is determined to snare her soul by Halloween.

Brooke broke the rules once by allowing love to interfere with her mission. Now she and Alex must put consequences aside to break the rules again—if they wish to save their daughter’s soul.

I actually bought this book for the cover, so it was meant to be when the author asked me to do a review for her. Not knowing that I’ve got the book on my e-reader. Telepathy I say. I mean, just look at the cover. It speaks a thousand words and it did when I wanted something to read.

As for my actual experience with it, it’s a long story, but a good one. You can see through the back flip what it’s all about and I like the premise of this. I love stories about fallen angels and the war we as humans don’t see. I think Calloway has done an amazing job with all her characters. You can relate to Brooke on so many levels, even though she has super powers, and Alex and Ella’s relationship, you can see how much he loves his daughter, even with Brooke it’s no doubt. Calloway even give us an extra bit of switching to Soren’s, the baddy, point of view, and what a fun character he was. A real love to hate experience there.

The author definitely share a love for New Orleans. She described the setting, food everything well. The only thing I didn’t like was that I struggled to get into the story and for some reason I wanted a bit more out of this one. I’ll just have to buy the next part.

Fotor5 star

It was really an awesome story, Elaine, and I wish you all the best with it.

Kind Wishes,
Adrienne
