If you're Alice you'd do uite a lot What's apparent early on while reading was the singular writing style I don't usually talk about the writing as I'm no particular expert but there was so much distinctive voice here that made Thin Air feel different from other reads I liked it and I thought it fit the novel well It appeared elegant and whimsical almost lyrical for me If this book was a dance it would definitely be contemporarymodernThe world concept is intriguing It's the kind of world you wouldn't mind knowing about Instead of regular fairies there are elementals which are invisible spirits that are kind of in charge of nature in a way I enjoyed learning about elementals and their hierarchies Salamanders in particular interest me as do the specifics of how everything worksI also really liked the variety of characters The gang Shane Nicky Wren Daniel Giovanni and DANTE were awesome Guess who I liked reading the most about? The characters were uniue in the way that they were very people like and not all the same They each had problems and distinguishing characteristics and I would love from them I loved how Wren had feelings or how spontaneous and funny Dante was Shane was so sweet in helping Alice and Giovanni was a character I wouldn't mind spending time with They were all decent real people which was so refreshing Thin Air was very fairy tale ish By that I mean there were many times when I uestioned how real the story could be Sometimes situations seemed slightly too convenient For example when Alice was learning how to be human there were times when I thought she should have had difficulty but that wasn't really needed for the story This didn't take away from the story but it's something I noticed I recommend just enjoying Thin Air and accepting what happens Now on to the love part of the story Something I know some people may not like is the insta love Thin Air has that but at the time Alice is an air elemental so you know she acts differently Maybe it's an elemental thing Also Thin Air is all about what happens because of that love so I think it can be justified I was rooting for Daniel and Alice and I liked reading about them falling in love Daniel's protectiveness was adorable Daniel himself won me over early on Pigs The plot was NOT what I was expecting at all There were sweet scenes and scenes where my jaw dropped The villain at the end fit and though I would have liked development for them I thought they were as good a villain as many All throughout the book there was an urgent feel and I was constantly nervous for Alice I'm certain she'll be fine though if she sticks to DanielThere was dark material and mature subject matter in Thin Air than you'd expect All the characters were in college and there were some disturbing scenes so I wouldn't recommend this to younger readers I was actually so shocked at some of the events Alice didn't have an easy timeOverall Thin Air is an original fantastical tale of love with danger mixed in There's a colorful cast of lovable characters and the book will leave you wanting You'll still be satisfied though the book is long enough to give you that plus it ends without a real cliffhanger There is mystery though 4 stars

BOOK ↠ Thin Air Thin Air Saga #1 Æ Lynn Seresin

Alice Ayre is no ordinary teenager She took her first name from a statue in Central Park pulled her last name out of the air literally and she’s actually almost a thousand years old In fact the only “ordinary” thing about Alice is that she’s in loveAlice was a sylphid a winged air spirit when she spotted Daniel Field camping in the Adirondacks and lost her heart to the handsome NYU student Intangible to the human sense Aeris is a sylphid a spirit of the air She is considered especially beautiful even for her fair kind and is desired by all the sylphs even King Paralda himself But none of them are of any interest to her Until Aeris does the forbidden she falls in love with a human called Daniel All she longs for is to have the chance to be with him but as a sylphid that is impossible So Aeries makes the only choice that seems bearable for her even though it has been banned by Paralda She chooses to be transmuted – transformed into a flesh and blood human Changing her name to Alice Ayre she sets out to find her love The worst she was expecting was that she would have to compete with Daniel’s current girlfriend Instead her past catches up with her And it will not let go will not go away untilI expected an airy fairy tale when I picked Thin Air up That was not what I got Sure there were fairy beings But there were also humans There was the worst of humanity – assault death – and the best – love hope friendship Altogether this combination of magic and realism was outstanding – above and beyond anything I expected It had the beauty of faeries and a gritty realism that almost made everything one hundred per cent believableAeris was rather proud although she loved her friend Tempesta her home and her sister spirits And she really did love what she was – being at one with the air She was so full of life of passion so strong Once human Alice Ayre became less proud and vulnerable Some of her reactions to human things were really cute and funny Although some of them were totally cringe worthy She was really naïve yet really mature at the same time I can’t wait to see where her character goes The one thing I hope for? That she may be sure in herself confident in her strength She was just a little damsel in distress at times Which was unnecessary ‘cause she was stronger than she thought she was Daniel Field was a sweetie artistic a musician He was really nice to Alice even when she made big blunders And he was the cutest I mean he had a collection of pigs And he named them How adorable? I love him He was strong sweet accepting darn adorable The dream boyfriend The only thing he may lack witty sarcasm Which is made up for byDante Sinclair who was wonderful He was warm fun sweet and great And he was in the theatre program at NYU “studying to be a drama ueen” Plus such a sweetie He was hilarious slightly snarky and eccentric And my own personal favourite Dante rocksThe rest of the characters were wonderful a wide variety of personalities Shane Dante’s wonderful boyfriend who had a snake called Lady Gag Gag he and Dante were the cutest Wren who was blind and got “feelings” that were never wrong Her boyfriend Nicky who was a real sweetie The rich Giovanni Accello jolly kind and an aspiring jeweller Delilah Daniel’s girlfriend who was cold evil possessive and plain horrible in my opinion And another favourite of mine who wasn’t in it much at all Terra an air spirit who helped Alice out at the beginning I loved him and would really really like to see of him in the next book hint hintWhat was amazing about this book was the world Seresin created All the different beings were intriguing The sylphids and sylphs of the air The undine of the water The gnomes of the earth The salamanders of the fire Flower spirits Forest spirits For them there was no death no pain no hunger They were practically immortal And of course the whole seeing the world through a spirit’s eyes was fascinating Aeris had no idea what pain was or hunger She had no clue about anything I mean she didn’t know what a statue was This was a great read It was addictive and new wonderful I may not have been a big fan of the violence but – while it shocked me at times – it was needed in an odd way Alice had to see the bad side to get the most from the good side if that makes any sense Horrible yes But Alice just had to know – how horrible humans can be I meanAs for the writing it was beautiful lyrical and so Alice I was entranced by its style actually stunned From the way this lady writes this book should be sitting on a shelf at Waterstones if you ask me She even made love at first sight work Which is as many of us know an impressive impressive success Still not 100% convinced by the sex scene it didn't really seem to fit in my opinion And while some twists were rather obvious others took me completely by surprise ‘Though I gotta say not entirely convinced by the justice in the bookEven so I can’t wait to see what Lynn brings out next – especially if it has Dante and Alice and Daniel in it And maybe Terra? I loved the airy fairy side to the story the romance the characters The humanity was shown at its best its worst It was completely new and different I can’t wait for Friendly Fire

Thin Air Thin Air Saga #1S her only hope of winning his heart resides in becoming mortal even though transmutation is forbidden by Paralda ruler of the air Risking punishment however seems a small price to pay for a chance at true happiness Tracking down Daniel in New York City ends up being surprisingly easy Getting noticed by him for all the right reasons is another story especially when the human world keeps tossing challenges in Alice’s path Jus General CommentsOverall I thought Thin Air told the cutest story with an interesting array of characters and a than interesting storyline However the first thing that really comes to mind when I think about Thin Air is that O M G I cannot wait to read the next one I’m pretty big on beginnings but this time I can’t get my mind over the ending as well as an excerpt from the next one I went bug eyed and was doing the whole did she seriously end there? Oh no she didn’t But alas she did and now I have to wait Why must people taunt me in such a fashion?Critical ReviewAuthor’s POV VoiceThin Air is written in the first person POV using the past tense and I personally found it to be beautifully written We are taken through the story by Alice first in her sylphid form that’s an air elemental and then in her human form I really loved that I could feel Alice coming through the words from the very starts Her very language was airy and sweet and I felt like I was in her head experiencing every thought along with herCharactersAlice Ayre is probably one of the sweetest female protagonists that I have ever seen in YA Sweet loving most definitely too trusting and extremely naive a trait that she has due to her time as a sylphid I immediately liked her however after awhile her naïveté began to wear me down a bit Yes I understood she was still getting used to the human world but as much as I tried to remember that I still wanted to shake her a little At other times I found it hard to connect with her and her and any emotions she had that weren’t her great love for Daniel I really wanted to feel of her and I didn’tThere is a very large cast of diverse characters in this story We have Daniel Delilah all of Daniel’s friends other transformed elementals and other human characters Each was used to further the story to help Ariel develop as a person and to help us learn about Ariel At times they felt a bit flat to me None of them was truly extremely developed but somehow that complemented the general ease of the flow of the storyStoryline PlotNow this story was very Little Mermaid esue It involved a non human girl falling in love with a human boy and becoming human to win his love Then the story took on its own life We really got to watch Alice as she struggled with being human and the way she had to come to terms with the life she left behind There were a few lulls in the story but they were always followed by some much needed tension that pulled me back inCover BlurbI really loved the cover here I thought it was so pretty And the butterfly reference becomes clear as you read the book but not in a predictable or annoying way The description really drew me in An elemental? Really? When was the last time I read a story about one of those and no I am so not counting Water Babies because I was like elevenRating ConclusionAll in all I’d have to give Thin Air 35 out of 5 stars The story had a very easy flow to it and was extremely easy to get into but the fact that Alice started to get on my nerves after awhile was a bit off putting Then there was the single sex scene between Daniel and Alice and it made me feel extremely awkward Not because I’m a prude but because Alice seemed so innocent and child like to me I just couldn’t wrap my head around her having sex Otherwise this story was extremely enjoyable and very relaxing I never had to force myself to pick it back up and that’s a big thing for meFor reviews check out my book blog Words That Fly
