Water Baby (Tales from the Eternal Archives #2)

My rating: 1 out of 5 stars

The story follows the life of the titular character, Amy, from when she assumes the title of “Water Baby” until her death. At the age of five, Amy becomes the emotional conduit for water and must keep the element calm so as not to allow devastating storms from killing innocent people. Throughout her brief life, Amy is given counsel by Grace, her fire counterpart, though only after she’s had an emotional outburst or has done something to anger “water”.

While the concept was interesting, the execution and the narrative structure were just off making this a frustrating read.
