Publisher's Summary

"My name is Larkspur, and I am an Elemental."

My people use the power of the earth to sustain life and defy our enemies. I should be at my father's side as a royal princess. But as a half-breed, bastard child, that isn't going to happen.

As an Ender, one of my father's Elite guards, it's my job to do as I'm told. When my older sister is sent as an ambassador to the realm of the water elementals - the Deep - I have no choice but to accompany her as her bodyguard.

With the death of the water elemental's King, a deadly battle for the throne begins; a battle we are forced to choose sides in.

There are only a few things I know for sure. The ocean may be beautiful, but lurking in its depths are monsters to fear, the water I tread is teaming with danger and I am on my own.

With no one to help, and no one to trust, I have to find a way to keep my sister safe, and stop a civil war.

But the secrets within the Deep are far darker than any of us realized.

Welcome... welcome to the Deep.

Great series starter but ....

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No because there are no further audible versions of the remaining 5 books in the 7 book series!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Larkspur

Have you listened to any of Lauren Fortgang’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love Lauren Fortgang's readings! I ordered all that I could find!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Loved the first two books in the series BUT not having the final 5 available on audible OR audiobook leaves me hanging and VERY DISAPPOINTED!

Book 2

Wow! What an action packed second book! Who do you trust....well Lark of course! This book has court intrigue, lots of battles, multiple princesses, corruption, and lots of drama. Maybe even a little beginning of a love story.

I love this series but am struggling w/the names

I love this series however am struggling with the names, as some of them have a name, but are called something else and then the elementals, there are all different kinds which is also confusing to me, I wish there was some kind of dictionary type thing like you do in a book to look them up and pictures would be cool too.

I am on Audible due to health issues and have never listened to books like this but wanted something different other than other peoples bios, so maybe they are a bit out of my league imagination wise.

I did do well with the Venom and Vanilla series, but this elemental stuff is kind of making me crazy trying to figure it out. The narrator is awesome though! Best so far, she can do all kinds of voices where the narrator on Venom and Vanilla sounded alike a lot while trying to do different voices. All in all this Author is incredible and what an imagination she has to write like this.

I would love to sit down with her sometime (phone or otherwise) and have her explain it all to me, that would be make my day! I spend 63 and spend a lot of time in bed so it gets pretty lonely and boring, these audible books keep me going!

I bet the younger people get it no problem, it's us older generation that didn't have this kind of reading in our day!!! Maybe?!?!?

I am slowly becoming addicted

Enjoyed the fresh take of the storyline in the first book of this series and I am just as pleased with book two.

Pure entertainment!

I have enjoyed all the books in this series, but this is my favorite by far. The characters are well developed with quirks and secrets, which I personally love.
This author has been a favorite of mine. I truly love her story telling. Can’t wait for the next one.

Another GREAT book!

I have to confess, I am becoming addicted to this series. The narration is great and the story line excites me. I am extremely looking forward to listening to the next book, I must know what happens!

Smooth as silk

Love the fast pace there is a lot of trying to figure out whom to trust. How far does the Evil Stepmother's reach go? Can't wait to find out in the next installment!!

Another enjoyable listen

As always Shannon builds worlds and relationships that suck you in and take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Larks story is starting to get really nitty gritty and I just want to find out more.

Great Series. Great Narration.

Where does Breakwater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of my favourites

What other book might you compare Breakwater to, and why?

The elemental Series is similar to the Dark in you series as in the unique worlds these authors have create run hidden within the modern world of today. The Character Larkspur is strong yet vulnerable like Malini Singhs, Ilona Andrews etc female leads.

What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

Her voice is easy to listen to, she brings the characters to life. Great Narrator

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

So as not to give any spoilers I will just say moments in the book where the dynamic between different characters relationships develop.
