That’s the reality young Alexa faces, and how well she copes will determine the fate of her world and that of the preternatural. Now, if only someone would explain what is going on!”

This was an intriguing read that kept me turning the pages. There were lots of plot twists and unexpected diversions that kept me guessing. I warn readers that this is just the 1st in a series, so don't expect full resolution at the end, but it's a great beginning to a grand fantasy!

Young Adult Fantasy Thrill Ride of Fun!

With its weaving of supernatural elements and fantasy, Nia Markos's "Elements" takes readers on a thrill ride into magic, witchcraft, a mysterious new world, intrigue, and young adult romance. The pacing throughout Markos's first installment of her Crystal Series sets the tone for books to follow and allows readers to dive headfirst into a new world of danger that doesn't let up.

The book follows Alexa as she is thrust into a world beyond her normal life and

This book was fantastic! It took me a couple of chapters to get into it, but it kept my attention after that. I really enjoyed the characters and each of their internal struggles. The author did a wonderful job of weaving the story so that the reader doesn't really know who to trust. I'm really good at predicting endings, and I'm even questioning certain characters. Lol!

This is very much a journey-style book, where the main character must go on a journey to discover her powers while also trying

This book has all the elements of a great read for young adults and adults alike. With its combination of supernatural elements, a complicated love triangle, danger and intrigue, it was very difficult to put down. The characters were well crafted, the plot strong and I really can't wait to find out what happens next in book 2 of the series.

What a great story. The story was great from the very beginning. A young woman, whose life was a series of moves and disconnection, leaves her controlling mother to attend college. Her life is sent into turmoil when her apartment is destroyed in an unexplained explosion. Her roommate convinces her to leave school and go with her to an unknown location, for her own protection. It is here that Alexa discovers she is not any ordinary college student. Though her questions are not quickly or easily a ...more

Alrighty, folks, buckle up because epic ranting is about to ensue.

Every once and a while, I try a free book on my Kindle, usually when I am waiting on a particular book to be released or to become available at my library. In my experience, free books are almost always disasters, but I have found a couple of special ones in the mix, so I keep trying.

And in my searching, I discovered this book. It is free, I told myself, what could it hurt? Oh, it could do plenty of hurt. It could (and did) make

This book came highly recommended, so I started reading it with high hopes and ready for entertainment. Even when a book is part of a series, I love them best when they are stand-alone books. This book did not meet those criteria.

First, we see a very troubled love affair between Alexa and Aiden and Alexa’s infatuation with Liam, Aidan’s brother. We see the secretive life of Eliana, the Queen of a world hidden from the human world, but which a spell opened to the humans. Elsam, the bad, who wants

Alexa is a teenage girl whose life changes dramatically as she learns the truth of her existence and purpose in life. This is the first book of the Crystal Series and I am anxious to read the other two books based on how well written Elements was. The plot is gripping, characters are well described and believable, and the magic of fantasy is wonderful.
