One of the things that helped to develop the characters was the changing perspective. Although the tale was told in the third person, it would alternate between characters, and speak from their point of view, observing the things that only they experienced. We see not only Ana and her father, but also the detective who wants to capture them, the smuggler who wants to profit from them, and the smuggler's lackeys who are tasked with transporting them. This constantly shifting POV gives us more insight into the story, especially since Ana doesn't really know the history of the Elementals, or how she suddenly developed these mysterious powers.
This novel has a dark, dystopian, sci-fi / fantasy style. It includes both advanced technology and magic, as well as a frightening society with a government that abuses its power. There are characters to root for, and villains to root against, and several other characters who both help or hinder our heroes, as it benefits them. I can't wait to see which side of the fight they choose as the story progresses.
After a Millennium Lothia is at peace, their power over Elementals has been demolished. The Elemental Wars have plagued been going on since the beginning of time. But have the Elementals been tamed for good? Or is this just the start of a new devastating war to come?
A fast paced action filled sci-fi. The plot is original, easy to follow and moves at a fast pace. The story consists of five short stories, that blend into one big exciting non stop adventure. If you are a fan of sci-fi and love a lot of action then this is the book for you.
