BookTour~ (Fire) Review of Earth by Shauna Granger
Release date: Dec. 18, 2012
Genre: Urban Fantasy, YA/New Adult
Demons, faeries, and mermaids. Claws, teeth, and nightmares.
They have been beaten and bruised, set on fire, and nearly drowned, but manage to always find their way home. Over their last Winter Holiday break before college, Shayna, Jodi, and Steven try again to put aside the magic in their lives for a little mundane fun. But Shayna's mother is having dreams of fire and death. A mysterious stranger by the name of Liam has just arrived in town. And Shayna's attempts to manage her new angelic powers are set back by Steven's insistence that the trio intervene in a riot outside of a concert, with disastrous consequences.
In her attempt to stop the riot, a man sees Shayna use her magical abilities – a man driven mad by watching his brother die at the hands of a black witch. He stalks Shayna, plotting to destroy her and her friends. With her mother’s warnings echoing in her mind, Shayna is now in the fight of her life against an unlikely foe: a human man.

I don't do well talking about myself. So as basics go, I have recently self-published the first two books in my Elemental Series, Earth and Air, Young Adult Urban Fantasy novels. Look for the third installment, Water, coming in 2012!
I have been working on the Elemental Series for the last four years and plan for it to be a 5 book series. It was a hard decision to self-publish but it's been an exciting and terrifying ride.
My Review~ ( Elemental #1 Earth)
If you love a good fantasy novel the Elementals series is the one for you. Earth is the action packed start to the series and this tour happens to be for the fourth installment. I love the idea of the magic in this story. I happen to think magic that is based on the Elements is extremely cool but there aren't many stories out there that contain it and I was definitely satisfied with. But at the same time I liked that it was more than that, there was a larger mythology. Terra was a really great main character that made the story very enjoyable because it is in the first person. I also loved the symbolism behind the characters names , I am a huge sucker for names that mean something in relation to the character!
I highly recommend this series and hope you continue to follow the tour!
