Elemental by Antony John
For me, the element part was not as developed as I would have liked. For having power of an element, I expected them to be able to do more than predict storms and tell if water is safe to drink.
Other than that, Elemental was a fine read. The setting was very detailed, and you could picture where they were. I did not have to stop and clarify anything. There was never a dull moment; they were always doing something. I have not read a lot of books where it is consistent the entire time, which I was happy about.
Unfortunately, I could not really connect with the characters. There wasn't really time to connect with them; they were always doing something. Often, they were too rushed to get things done that they didn't really connect effectively with each other, either.
I will read the rest of the series, and although it was not my favorite, I do think reading it was worth my time.
