Book Description

"A cross between teenage Famous Five and Heroes."

Just who is Halíka Dacomé?

To Rose Frost, moving house every six months is normal. Another new town here, another new school there, her ability to adapt is as easy as breathing. But everything changes when her parents go overseas and Rose moves in with her grandmother. She enjoys meeting new friends and catching up with old ones from her childhood holidays — except now she must hide a precious secret from everyone, a gift from birth that defies modern day science.

Her dreams become riddled with a warrior woman called Halíka Dacomé, but are they visions or messages from the future? She starts her own investigation but encounters more questions than answers. Living right on the edge of Warminster in Wiltshire doesn’t help with its folklore and myths about strange lights in the sky and ghost stories of the Salisbury Plain

Not only that, her troubles really take hold one night when the mysterious Aiden Deverill with his alluring smile, his gorgeous dark looks and hypnotising blue eyes, saves her from a freak fire. Or did he?

For Rose, her new life is beginning but she soon realises that despite assurances people are not always what they seem. What she always believed to be a happy family and a friendly town soon turns on its head when she discovers that her family secret, Aiden Deverill and the truth behind Halíka Dacomé is at the heart of the whole conspiracy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A love triangle in the making... October 13, 2011
By Rachael
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a wonderful and creative story! I could not stop reading it. It is about a girl Rose who has been gifted with the gift of healing...and much more. It has a great back story about Halika Dacome...A Warminster legend. A love triangle is forming between her, Morgan and Aiden I can't wait to read more! Rose is a great character well developed and very mature for her age. A good role model for young girls. This is a great book for young teens and adults.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great YA Reading! (For everyone!) November 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was given to me for an honest review by Netgalley and Pauma Publishing!

Young Rose Frost has always lived a nomadic life, presumably because of her parents' work. When, once again, her parents are moving, it is decided that Rose will go to live with her grandmother, whom she has not seen for many years. Fortunately, Rose is the type of person who is outgoing and renews childhood friendships with ease. Add to that, her new friends and she settles in well in a mysterious small town called Warminster, unaware of its with many secrets.

Along with all of these changes, Rose has started to have strange dreams about a being named Halika Dacome...A Warminster legend. If this isn't enough, she finds herself attracted to two completely different boys, Morgan and Aiden. Both of these boys try to tell her the other is 'bad' for her, but who is telling the truth????

Rose is a great character, well-developed and very mature for her age. The settings are vivid and detailed with a great flow! The ending, great! (If you can stand a cliffhanger!) This is a great book for young teens and adults.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review by Book Monster Reviews January 11, 2012
Format:Paperback
My Review (Book Monster Guest Reviewer)

Rose is anything but an ordinary teenager. Throughout her life her family has been constantly on the move, never staying in one place too long, as a result Rose aims to be an open and bubbly person to combat the loneliness she feels every time she leaves a set of friends. At an early age Rose discovers that she is different, she can do things that her friends can't including being able to heal herself and others. When Rose moves in with her Grandmother Daisy she is given the freedom she craves she teams up with her childhood friends Hannah & Mira who introduce her around town. Rose finds herself drawn to two boys, Aiden the quitessential bad boy and Morgan the mysterious boy who lives on her Grandmothers estate. People have been disappearing from town and when someone close to Rose's new friends is next they decide to start their own investigation. As the mystery unravels Rose discovers that those closest to her have been keeping secrets and everyone has a hidden agenda.

It was refreshing to have a 16 yr old with little experience in the ways of the heart, she may be drawn to both boys but at the same time she is being cautious. I have a feeling there's more to come with her relationship with both Aiden & Morgan. Daisy is an interesting character, you just know she know's a lot more than what she is willing to admit to!

This is a tale full of mystery and intrigue, by the end I was wondering just who Rose could trust. It's heavy on the description at the start but by the end Alexandra seems to have found a nice balance between setting the scene, character interaction and plot development. The whole book has set the scene for the next one and I'm looking forward to seeing how the story develops and joining Rose on the next part of her journey.

2.0 out of 5 stars Chapter by Chapter Review of Elemental The First November 28, 2011
By MaryAnn
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be very slow in the beginning. Quite literally, the halfway point was where the story started to pick up for me. The author did a nice job with the interaction of all the characters. I was honestly, a ping pong. Yes you heard me. I couldn't decide who I liked more! At first, obvious choice was Aiden, but then helloooo Morgan. Both equally sexy in their own ways.
I was annoyed with Rose quite a bit in this book. I felt that she flew off the handle way to quickly, and acted like a pouty brat most of the time. I mean, if I were Morgan, and this chick kept flipping out on me because she did something wrong like break into my house, I wouldn't even bother. The end had to be my favorite. That's when all the fun starts to happen. Secrets revealed, deception, heart ache. It was wonderful, and it ended perfectly for a second book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elemental: The First September 10, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this book because I won a contest the author, Alexandra May, was offering. I won the second book in the series, so I naturally had to buy the first book and read that before I received the book I had won. I fell in love with the Elemental book before I finished the first chapter. I stayed up all night and read the entire book, just couldn't put it down. To describe this book in one word I would have to say: Excellent!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5/5 September 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I read Elemental: the First, somewhere in May and decided to re-read it again this summer. My thoughts initially were that I enjoyed it, and it still stands.

Rose Frost's life has been a bundle of questions. Why is her family constantly moving? Who's following them? And most importantly, why is she different? Why is she the only one with a special gift? What is with all these breath-stopping dreams?

Rose is shipped off to her grandmother's -- to a town that has been rising in rate of missing people -- after a chase by the unknown. She meets up with childhood friends, and new ones who are more than meets the eye. Her arrival triggers something beyond this world, and Rose is about to experience the greatest challenge of her life: Friendship, betrayal, what's wrong, what is right, but most importantly being trapped in the middle of a primeval war.

Urban Sci-Fi/fantasy, this book was a welcome. I would even say there were a bit of mystery elements as well, which made the book all the more exciting! The first half of the book was a tad slow for me; revolving around Rose getting in touch with her peers, and settling in - of course we cannot forget the teenage dramas. I would not say it was a disappointment, because even in the midst of the "normalcy" in her life, there is always something alien happening. This was why I never got bored. The pace eventually picks up, just a bit, towards the middle-end half of the book where situations took an interesting turn.

The characters were vibrant and fun; even "Dr. Evil" brought excitement to this read. Matter-of-fact, he was probably the most necessary out of all the characters. Without him, there would be no premise - nothing for the protagonist and their supporting characters to fight for.

This was a good book, but it took too long to get to the point. I like suspense but not when it is unnecessarily drawn out; that is why I gave it a three star.
