Dark Awakening jLet sust saywow This book took the series from PG to R so fast And there isn t even a hint in any of the descriptions that there are a large amount of very explicit sex scenes That being said I feel like the plot took a back seat to the romance lust fest that was Liam and Sophia s relationship Both are given important missions from their tribe s elders at the beginning of the book and both ust sort of meander about in their attempts to complete them Granted Liam is trying to NOT do what he was asked but even in that regard he s pretty wishy washy We barely see any of the classes we barely see any of the magic with the exception of a couple tutoring sessions with Doya and the whole book seems focused on angsty teenage drama and lusting after each other There is barely any conflict or character growth Hayley is hardly seen and I feel like there was barely anything to challenge Sophia and Liam except a bunch of Should I do this or not wavering back and forth The temple scene at the end was the most exciting the book got but even that barely lived up to the excitement of the Elemental Cup in the first bookAnd the whole bit with the view spoiler possibly bringing Nashoma back from the dead And Carter and Tiara being brought back WHY WAS NO ONE MORE CURIOUS ABOUT THIS Oh cool dude the Water Elders brought you back from the dead Sweet deal No other uestions about it no one wondering how the heck the Elders did it no disbelief or attempt to understand it nothing It was the most blase acceptance of a major plot point that I have ever seen And the melodramatic break up OMG All the crying I rolled my eyes SO HARD hide spoiler Visit me at This was the Supernatural Romeo and Juliet I was looking for I really enjoyed the first book in the series but The Water Legacy upped the ante for me I was 100% there for all the magic all the cute random animals kitsune please the drama and the romance I ended up listening to all 16 hours of this book in 1 day keep in min I listened on 2x the speed since the narrators were ust about perfect when I sped the book up so it was technically less than 16 hours because I found myself sucked back into this world so easily It took no time for me to be fully imm Loved it Ready for Great story lots of action and adventure Back at Orenda academy both Sophia and Liam were looking forward to spend time with each other only their houses have different plans While Sophia is summoned by her elders to pursue the fulfillment of the prophecy Liam on the other side is tasked by his elders to stop her at all costs and blackmailed by the worst of means While the story setup and the premise of the plot development were interesting I was a bit taken aback by the turn the series took Instead of really developing the world further and focusing on the tasks at hand I got the feeling we all centered on Liam and Sophia s relationship only with all the steamy details included Most of the time I felt like the drama between them was in the forefront being forbidden to be together and all the mortal threat over their lives being only a constant presence in the background although influencing their actions in a substantial way Also I think the book was much longer than it needed to be and I was sometimes really tempted to skip some passages or pages Family Men just to move forward to where the plot develops not only the relationships between the two Still it was a fine reading experience the book is easy to read and despite this turn the series still holds a promise to deliver a story worth the reading time I am curiously waiting for the next installment You are my breath my spirit and my existence You are the sunrise every morning and the stars every evening You are my soulmate and the love of my life You are my ocean and you keep my world safe You are beautiful THIS BOOK BLEW ME AWAY TO ORENDA ACADEMY IT SELF I LOVE IT SO MUCH I CAN T CONTAIN IT This wasust too much to handle I can t believe what has happend Impossible Sophia Liam Jonah Imogen ohh how I love them They are sooo precious to me The development is unbelievable *The previous book ended with a earth shattering PLOTTWIST LIAM HAS *previous book ended with a earth shattering PLOTTWIST LIAM HAS KILL SOPHIA SO HAVE NASHOMA BACK BY THE ANCESTORS the story begins with a flashback with Nashoma and liam They are cliffdiving and liam is

the elements which one would you want There is fire water nature air and spirit but which one would be the strongest or weakest Which one would be harder or easier to control In this story Linki and Rades have already established this whole new world of magical creatures from the first installment but this one dives a little deeper into what happens when those elements mix Both authors have come together to provide a sensational second installment that is a direct follow up to The Fire Prophecy where four unlikely friends have been named champions and survivors of the Elemental CupSophia and Liam have made it through the Elemental Cup but it took a toll Everyone is now suspicious of Sophia being the prophesied one That makes Liam and Sophia s relationship so much dangerous Everyone knows that Elementi are supposed to stay with their own but Liam belongs to the Toaua tribe and Sophia to the Koigni tribe Conseuences for interrelations or marriage between tribes are grave and often end in death of one or both individuals The Water Elders have promised Liam that they would bring Nashoma back if he agrees to end Sophia s life and Sophia s familiar Esis inconspicuously continues to heal Liam from his terminal illness Both are hiding something from one another but how long can they really keep it a secret The day when Sophia will have to fulfill the prophecy is coming closer which means that Liam will be forced to make a choice Can he find evidence that will turn the water elders away from Sophia or will he have to kill her in order to save thousandsBoth Linski and Rades write well together This collaboration appears effortless and flows uite smoothly The characters are all developed nicely but the real creativity and visionaries are the magical creatures that are introduced in the story They bring life to the pages especially the main familiars that were introduced in book one This is a fast paced story and readers will find themselves absorbing the words rapidly and with fervor The narration was virtually impeccable also Araya and Halstead make an impressive team and their vocal relay of the story is engaging With this being the second installment in the Hidden Legends Academy of Magical Creatures readers are recommended to read the first book prior to this one as it is a direct continuation of The Fire Prophecy If you are a reader of young adult fantasy you may be interested in reading Liam and Sophia s storyAn audiobook was purchased by Turning Another Page We provide a five star rating to The Water Legacy by Megan Linski and Alicia Rades Okay I have mixed feelings over the story so far I like some of it The part with the animals is cool The characters can be incredibly immature though Sophia can be a little too pushy about some things and Liam ust weird sometimes Sometimes the relationship seems forced and awkward I never enjoy reading explicit sex of any kind You still see some even skimming pages to find out when it s over The story can work without that I am interested enough to find out how things are going to go so wi Disclaimer I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions The tour is being sponsored by Tantor Audio The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of itOkay but really first of all I would say that if you are able to listen to the first book first do it I didn t and while I wasn t completely lost I did miss do it I didn t and while I wasn t completely lost I did miss on everything that our main characters had to go through in that one and it did make me feel like I was missing out on some of the background and foundation that laid the plot for this one I was still able to keep up and it didn t mess up much for me but I will say thatSecond of all this book says it s a YA fantasy but dang did it get pretty steamy in a anitor s closet And I m not even Personnel Management in Government joking about that Itust so happened to be Valentine s day in Orenda Academy and Liam got Sophia some flowers She gave him a hand Out of This World job Yes I m serious She s a virgin and wanted to do something nice for him without going all the way Nothing wrong with that she apparently did a greatobBUT Darn it Liam why couldn t you have aimed for a better spot to finish than her shirt Darn youSo yeah Orenda Academy feels like of a college scene than a high school and nothing s wrong with that I The Time It Never Rained just wound t label it a a YA novel Maybe a NA new adult novel That may work out better with the content and the sexy scenes If that s not your bag you can skip them But they do get prettyuicyThe premise of this novel was very interesting and I haven t seen one like it The tribes that the students are a part of seem to have some inspiration from Native American tribes although I could be wrong Koigni possess power over fire Liam s tribe which I m forgetting right now sorry is water It gives me Avatar The Last Airbender vibes mixed with His Dark Materials because each student has a familiar with them Well except for Liam and that s a sad story in itself which wasn t explained in this one from what I remember because it was probably explained in the first novelI can imagine the whole water and fire don t mix thing and how Liam and Sophia have to fight through the odds to make their love work and how Liam s basically under the orders of having to kill her I doubt he would actually do it especially if he does love her That s hard you know Plus that s killing
ANOTHER STUDENT DO THEY ALLOW THATstudent Do they allow that schoolThe narrators did such a great The Child of the Soul and Other Stories job in this one I really felt like I could feel their emotions while they were reading the novel and I am so glad that they had a voice for Sophia and a voice for Liam Sometimes when books have multiple POVs they can sometimes use one narrator especially if it s written in third person POV but you can clearly see which character the chapter revolves around It worked out in this novel s favor to have two separate narrators and I fell in love with both of their voicesSince I enjoyed this one I would love to go back to the first novel meet Sophia and Liam for the firs time and seeust how insane the Elemental Cup was Because that sounded really insane And stressful Thank goodness Sophia survived it I am truly regretting not readlistening to the first book of this series This was fantasy vivid rich and enticing I wanted so much I ust could imaging what book one of the series held for my auditory and visual sensors to experience Without the first book experience I did feel a bit aloof through some portions of the audio I was looking for things that had already occurred or were already explained With that said I do highly advise experiencing book one first then dive in to the explosion of characters depth details culture and Dual narration added that extra layer of intimacy with the characters and the vivid depiction of the world that was created for these characters I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions The tour is being sponsored by Megan Linski The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
