Despite being the junior Elemental, Logan’s never had to worry about failing a mission before. Not until an overgrown and annoyingly attractive shifter comes along.

Being an Elemental is in Logan’s blood. Hers is the gift of Air, a vast power she’s still struggling to control. Then a Were named Connell hunts her down. His wolf is missing, and he blames her. 

A den of werewolves is the last place Logan wants to be. The testosterone alone is enough to make her choke. But she has a mystery to solve. She will find out who is stealing wolves even if kills her. 

Unfortunately, that’s exactly what the enemy has planned…

My Opinion

Air starts off with Logan the youngest elemental having to enact justice on the family that committed the crimes in the previous book. Once justice was delivered she went dancing, where she felt as if she was being watched. She was by Connell, a werewolf who believes that she stripped him of his wolf. Logan realizes that Connell will need her help to get his wolf back, but along the way the wind speaks truths to her that cause to her have to intervene. This of course puts Connell’s male side on edge.

Logan is different from Diana in that she has a softness about her that is due to her age. Yes, she is an elemental but her momma and her aunt raised her in such a way that she is independent. She knows how to take care of herself and understands the value of family. She is a fighter for justice across the magical world and takes her job serious. She just also takes unwinding serious as well. She is weary of outsiders as she should be. Although, there are some insiders that she does not trust either.

Connell is beta to his father’s alpha. He knows that without his wolf the dynamics in his pack will shift. He needs to find who stole his wolf and work out how it is even possible. The only ones with the right to strip magical beings of the power is the elementals. Logic would dictate that he must hunt the one known to strip powers, that being Logan. He does not find what he expects. 

That these two are mates comes as no surprise. What does come as a surprise is Connell’s easy acceptance of it. Logan has a harder time and continues to fight the good fight- her attraction to him. Connell is ready and willing to do what is necessary to prove to her that their being mates is real. Without his wolf though, how can Logan trust that. The tension between the two is pretty hard core and it is fun to watch as they battle it out.

The two must work together to figure out how and why someone is stealing other’s wolfs. All is not what it seems and there has been a breach among the elementals. Who is the weakest, and how are they to handle the information that they obtain? 

Air is a fun easy read that is just what you need after a hard week at work. It does not end in a cliffhanger but there are enough questions left over that Air ends with a perfect set up for Water.

My Rating 3 out of 5 stars
