Shoemaker also gives us love interests gone awry, female friendships, the nemesis who may not be quite all he seems, on top of extremely creative thinking with her depiction of the elements and how one might "bend" them. I could totally see this book as a movie - the special effects would be brilliant!
If you are a fan of Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Last Airbender, heck, even Narnia - any sort of young adult fantasy - I think you'll love this book!
P.S. Ms. Shoemaker, may I please learn the secret to wielding water now? It sounds like fun!
I was a fun, fast read with an interesting world. I left the story feeling satisfied, but there are still lots of things to be explored deeper in the second book. Overall, It was probably 4 1/2 stars
I dinged it half a star because of nit-picky details/elements of the story that were fine, but could have been better.
Alayne navigates school life with a fun, talkative new friend, Marysa, and a few boyfriends that she has to choose between. There is also the ever present, mysterious Daymon who often shows up out of nowhere and seems to be protecting Alayne although their relationship isn’t great. I find myself hoping that I’m going to read more about this guarded guy in the future!
I was not able to put this story down for long between readings! The beginning moves quickly and before you know it, everyone has started school. The school life brings about plenty of drama all while everyone is learning to use their new elemental power. All except for Alayne, who has known how to wield her element well for a long time, much to her parent’s dismay. Then, a battle breaks out and it’s clear that someone isn’t who they claim to be.
I liked the pace, not too fast nor does it drag on leaving you wanting to just get to the point. This story has a love triangle (and a love interest that I’d like to see come together in future books), a few mysteries and surprises, and good friendships. It’s also fun to read how the elementals wield their elements from just playing around, to making all things function, and finally to battling it out.
