Rhet guts fish for a living, content in obscurity until the day he is plucked from the wharves by nine exotic strangers and carted across the continent to a life-sentence of imprisonment. Though he has done nothing (as far as he knows) to warrant such capture, his captors are certain he will one day destroy the world if they do not prevent him. Though it is true that Rhet ...more

The Element Keepers is an epic fantasy novel for young adults. The author does an amazing job of setting, world building and writing style. It's got a pleasurable mix of traveling, magic and dialogue. As with a lot of epic novels you also get several characters stories that you follow, an immense landscape and with this novel, magical powers.

Rhet and Pateal are best friends, and pretty much brothers in every aspect except parents. Rhet's parents are deceased and Pateal's family has raised him a

An epic fantasy, worth of Tolkien.

Element Keepers: Whispers of the Wind by E. P. Marcellin is an epic fantasy, pulling the reader into a world on the brink of war and destruction. The novel follows the journey of Soralin, a young ‘Y’dah’ who has the power to control the wind and the air. She seeks the man destined to become ‘Za Din’ – the one who prophecy has foretold will save the world – or destroy it.

The author has built a solid fantasy world, giving the story depth and immersing the reader
Element Keepers didn’t really knock my socks off, but it was an entertaining, and comforting read that didn’t challenge the typical fantasy tropes as much as I wanted it to. While this may lend the book a slightly exhausted air, many fans of fantasy could enjoy this book for what it is, a jaunt back to the old fantasy clichés which are the very things that sucked so many of us into this genre. Marcellin’s writing style is what makes this book shine. Despite the slightly wooden characters and the ...more

Where I stopped reading: Location 1266 of 8485 on my Kindle app.

Why I stopped reading: The writing just wasn’t up to par. I suppose I’m losing my tolerance; I used to be able to let grammar slide if the story was good (and this story IS good). But. You’ve got to learn Chopsticks before you can play Chopin’s Preludes. You’ve got to be able to julienne before you get your own show on The Food Network, and you must, MUST be able to compose a concise, well-punctuated sentence before you

The Element Keepers is a fascinating tale full of magic and different races. The writing is flawless and superb. I really enjoy the journey that Marcellin takes me on through the pages of her book. A great storyteller, Marcelline kept me glued to the pages, making it hard to stop to let reality take over my life.
Rhet the main character and his friend Peteal are as physically different from each other as a fish and a crocodile. Yet they have been together since birth. Rhet’s parents died when he

A wisp of gossamer, about the size and substance of a spider's web.
~Monica Baldwin

In D'Shee, a fishing town in a world like our own, Rhet and Peteal make their living by cleaning the catches of the day on the docks. Everyday the same as the last, but it suits them both fine. As a strange ship sails into the dock, baring a flag wi

I found Element Keepers by E.P. Marcellin to be very interesting and I enjoyed each of the characters she created a lot.Out of all of the characters, Soralin was my favorite because she wasn't afraid to challenge the beliefs of her people.I have my fingers crossed that there will be a second book because I really want to see where the author takes the characters next.

No matter how much good a writer has going for them in terms of writing ability, unfortunately sometimes it isn't enough for me to really think a novel stands out. I'll be the first to admit that, when it comes to fantasy especially, I'm super picky. In order for me to be really interested in a fantasy novel, it needs either absolutely brilliant characters, some really interesting new twist on the genre, or a plot that grabs me. Unfortunatel

Rhet guts fish for a living. His live is pretty simple; he works and hangs out with his friend Peteal. The only thing out of the ordinary in his town is himself. He’s different from everybody, he has dark hair and he’s tall but everybody in his town is blonde and short. One day while working, nine exotic looking women took him and his friend prisoners without saying why. What Rhet doesn’t know is that he has the power to destroy the world.

I had a hard time getting to remember the names of towns

I am SO excited! Thank you to everyone who has stood by me as I wrote, edited, and edited some more so that we could, together, bring this baby to life!

After so many years of hard work, here it is: the INTEGRAL story of Element Keepers: Whispers of the wind!

In addition to the story, the KINDLE version (only 2.99$! at that price you can even afford the coffee to drink while you read it!) offers the never-released-before prequel "Element Keepers: Harbinger".

Celebrate with me, and let's cheer to th

I really hate it when I can't get into a book. For me, I love to read and I can pretty much get into any story. But this book I just could not. I struggled through out the first 50 pages. I kept pushing hoping I would get into it but I can't.
My main problem with this book is the story line. It was not doing it for me. While I loved the characters and the world that is created around them, the story line was flat. There was no excitement, or umph, in at least for me. I really wanted to get into t

Coming from a deep, rich cultural background, E.P. Marcellin has truly created a vibrant tale through the characters and plot of Element Keepers. Traveling from coast to coast, the heroes find themselves discovering as much about themselves as their surroundings.

I truly loved watching Reth and Soralin evolve as they learned that there is much more to life than what you are: what you can become.
