Breath of Air (Dryad Quartet 1) by Katie Jennings

Title: Breath of Air (Dryad Quartet 1)
Author: Katie Jennings
Number of Pages: 338
Published: April 2012 by Sapphire Royale Publishing

Blurb from Goodreads:Her name was Capri, and she was Air. 

She was born with a gift she didn’t understand. A gift so strange, so remarkable that she had kept it secret for as long as she could remember, despising that it made her different when all she wanted was to be normal, to belong. As an orphan, belonging to someone, anyone, would have been an incredible blessing, one she would have given up all that she had just to get a taste of. 

But the truth was that she didn’t belong in the orphanage in Virginia, or even in the United States. In fact, she didn’t belong with human beings at all. Because she wasn’t one of them, not really. She was something much more extraordinary. 

She could shift the direction of the wind, create billowing clouds out of nothing, and charm birds into dancing on her open palm. She belonged to an elite group of beings, responsible for preserving the balance of nature and the safety of Earth from an underworld that deserved to be feared, and needed to be controlled. 

And after years of being lost, she had at last been found, and now the truth of how she had ended up so far from home was becoming horribly clear to her. 

But there’s someone who doesn’t want her to return; someone who knows Capri was the only witness to an act of heinous treason and violent murder. And when she begins to search her memories for details of the night she was taken from her home, details that will implicate a killer, she finds herself the unwary target of an otherworldly dark force intent on silencing her by any means possible.

Review: This book was different, very original. I really can't think of anything similar to it of the top of my head. The story revolves around dryads which help Rhia who is Mother Earth run the world. There are those who control Air, Earth, Water and Fire. Then there are Furies and Fates. It was reminiscent of Greek mythology but at the same time it wasn't.
    The story follows Capri who thought she was an orphan  until she is swept away to live on a floating island with other dryads. She meets her father and learns that she was kidnapped and her mother was killed. But even though she received a warm welcome someone still wants her dead.
     I liked the mystery the book had. It was hard to guess and I really didn't know where things were going to go until it actually happened. It was intense and well planned and the events made sense.
    The romance was cute. It wasn't all hot and heavy and it started of as friendship and really takes time to develop into something more. It was sweet and cute and very light it really wasn't the main focus of the novel.
   This was a great debut novel and I really love how different it was.

I give this debut

Wait For You by J. Lynn

Title: Wait For You
Author: J. Lynn
Published: February 26, 2013 by J. Lynn
Number of Pages: 332

Blurb from Goodreads:
Some things are worth waiting for…

Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.

Some things are worth experiencing…

Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.

Some things should never be kept quiet…

But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?

And some things are worth fighting for…

Review: I'm making this short.
J. Lynn is a writing  goddess.
Cam is swoon-worthy, hotness and sweetness all balled into one amazing guy. Can I have him please?
Avery is such an amazing character and I loved her.
The story was heart-breaking beautiful and so filled with hope.
Get this book right now. I have nothing else to  say this is a masterpiece.
    Except this the parents were assholes can someone slap them please?

I give this novel
