Julia never had a real family until meeting Theo and Valera. Now that they are united by the Trinity Key, they are plagued by nightmares. Danu, the goddess of Aether, is in agony and calls out to them to free her.
However, the Elders who rule Aether don’t want to give up their power and warn the girls to stay away from Danu’s tomb. Julia must decide whether to trust the Elders or to follow her instincts and unleash Danu upon the world.
Save Aether starts where Escape Aether ends, with the girls on trial for combining the Trinity Key.
I will have to say that while I didn’t care for Julia in the first couple of books, I liked her in this one. She was so snarky, such a wiseass that I was dying laughing while reading. Slammy Magee (aka Slammy) was a favorite nickname of mine that she gave one of the Elders. She was more of an act first then think later kid, and it did help her out a few times in the book.
Valera continued to blossom into her own person in the book, and I loved it. She was not the timid, meek girl that we met in Into Aether. She was not afraid to stand up for herself or her friends. Even if that meant destroying her relationship with her mother, her brother, and her siblings.
Theo got even stronger in this book. She was the brains and the backbone of the group, and she always thought things through before acting. Theo also had the most control of her powers (behind Valera….Julia was last). Her relationships with Victor and her parents meant everything to her. But she was going to do what was right by freeing Danu.
I loved the Danu storyline. If any of you guys are into Celtic mythology, Danu is the mother goddess of the Tuatha De Dannan. At one point in my life, I was very much into Irish folklore and Irish mythology. So when I see it being used in a book, I get very excited (I know, complete nerd). The author did a great job of using the concept of Danu and giving her a huge spin. I wasn’t ready for that spin when I read it.
The ending was perfect for the series, and I don’t think I could have written it more perfectly if I tried.
