Review: Elemental Reality
Score: 75 points (4 stars)
Drastic changes in Callie’s life aren’t unusual, but this time it’s different. Now she’s fighting to save her family while she adjusts to her new, supernatural reality. Life will never be the same. . . .
The world building is unique and interesting. The visuals are stunning, and the characters are diverse in personality and lifestyle. There's also a lot of cool definitions for old concepts (I don't want to go further because that would be spoiling the book). A lot of action and swoony boys, makes this a pretty fun and interesting read. And what a cliffhanger! Wow! I'll be picking up book two, that's for sure.
What Didn't Work:
There are a lot of cultural references I didn't quite understand. I had enough knowledge of the scene to figure it out, but it would be helpful to have them elaborated on slightly for those of us not in the know of the 'punk rock' scene. I also would have loved to see some more build up with Cayden. I can't wait to see him again in book two though because he's especially got me curious! There was one section of the book which was a little slow for me, but other than that it was well paced. Finally, I almost played a drinking game with how often the main character was called "Kitten". A minor pet peeve of mine, but it was there all the same. :3
