Monday through Friday I write with occasional departures into reading the next book on my Kindle. Mostly, the books are set in the Regency or Victorian period. Then when I get home at night I’ll read before going to bed. Thereby leaving the weekend for watching TV and editing my WIP.
Every very long once in a while I’ll stumble across a book that holds my attention so strongly that all I want to do is read, read, read and continue reading until I finish the book. To the extent that even my favori
Tempest Child is the sixth book by Laura Eno. My guess is that the genre of this book is fantasy, but I would label it paranormal-romance-fantasy-kick butt.

Princess Skyla, the protagonist of Tempest Child, is no shrinking violet. She’s been training all her life to fight for her kingdom. She’s been training to become Queen. At 17, she’s at the age when her father is about to marry her off. His idea of a husband is different from hers, but it’s not like she’s had time to find love on her own. Al
Again, i have lost myself in the world that Laura has made. Her description for everything is detailed, also easy to image it in your mind.

Skyla is a princes. She controls the elements; earth, fire water, wind and fire. When her father, the king, gets held as a hostage. She has

The first question that popped into my mind was 'what year is this story set in?' This is because first it talks about kingdoms and gowns and that sets the story in like fantasy world and then when she goes into town she

I must admit, when I began "Tempest Child", I was not fond of the principal character, Princess Skylather'cha'eab - or Skyla, as she prefers to be called.

As it turns out, she wasn't all that happy with herself either - which, I suspect, was the cause of my own discomfort.

The book, the story, is the tale of her coming to know herself, her strengths - of coming into her own. And what she becomes is magnificent!

The story takes us on the heroine's journey, with guides and helpers (quite idiosyncrati
Laura Eno has done a great book here in Tempest Child with combining magic and warrior of the old times to create a wonderful combination.
This Book came to me as a GoodReads FirstReads it was a pleasure to read it and I will not say much as I wish not to ruin the book but I will say I feel bad in one way for the main character but in another I am glad it is her and not me going thru the trial of her life so if I may.

Go Get Your Self The Book

Tempest child is a fresh and imaginative story full of the fantastical elements a fantasy reader yearns for. It is one of the most creative story lines I’ve read in a while, and I read a lot of fantasy books. I highly recommend this book to all readers, especially those that enjoy strong plotlines and great worldbuilding. Thank you for following the rules of your world, Laura!

This book was a great read after a long day. I enjoyed getting lost in this world and following Skyla's coming of age. I'll definitely be reading more from Laura Eno.

Sounds absolutely thrilling.
2.5/5 stars

Since her mother’s tragic death, Princess Skylather’cha’eab has done a pretty successful job of avoiding her inescapable destiny. As her mother’s only female heir, at the age of eighteen Skyla will inherit the title of queen, as well as the goddess Hecate’s mantle of protector of the four sacred elements – Earth, Wind, Water and Fire. Skyla, only eight-years-old when her mother passed has had no one to guide her in magical instruction. She’s become complacent about her role in the kin
I won this book from first reads. It took me awhile to get into this book. Not because it was bad but because it was a little confusing. I felt like it is meant to be a book for pre-teens/teens but there were some words in there that would indicate it was written for a different age group.

The beginning was the most confusing parts because I could not mentally place the characters or location in my mind. The cover is pretty but it is not at all what Skyla is described to look like. So after this

And, no, she still hasn't grown up but that's okay. Please visit her strange imagination at Laura Eno and follow her on Twitter at laur ...more
