Welcome to my blog tour review post for The Lost Elemental!
It was supposed to be simple. Graduate, get a job to keep my mom from drowning in mountains of medical debt, and maybe score a scholarship to a decent college.
All of that changed in a single breath. Because it turns out I’m not human. And I just knocked out the power on an entire city block.
In a split second, all of my carefully-laid plans go up in smoke. There’s no chance for college because I’m being hauled off to Kingwood Academy. They say it’s for my own protection and those around me. But I know one thing for sure…
I’m not welcome here.
The mean girls don’t stop at insults and tripping you in the halls. They’re wielding magic that could cost me my life. And the rest of the school sees me as either a halfling that should be cast out or a powerhouse to be brought down.
Everyone except them.
The charmer. The gentle giant. The psychopath. And maybe even the cruel prince.
The royals of Kingwood Academy have taken me under their wing and I can’t help but notice how my skin hums when they touch me. I shouldn’t be dreaming about a single one of them, let alone all four. But I can’t seem to stop myself.
Only someone doesn’t like the attention the royals are showing me. And when the attacks start, the princes will do anything to protect me. But they don’t know the true evil we face. The kind who will do whatever it takes to seize our power, even if that means stealing the very last breath from our lungs…
Spoiler Free Review
After discovering that she had hidden abilities, Aura Cole is sent to the elite Kingwood Academy, filled with the talented students of the four elemental kingdoms. But, Aura soon discovers that she really doesn’t fit in as the only half-human half-elemental student. And it certainly doesn’t help that she is getting a lot of attention from the four princes from each of the kingdoms, Riven, Kai, Phoenix, and Atlas.
I gave The Lost Elemental 4 stars, at first not really enjoying it but at the end, I had a fun time and am patiently waiting for book two to come out. I found the plot, originally, too boring and just a little too similar to what I’ve read before, but, in all honesty, I ended up enjoying it a lot more than I thought. I found the guys, Riven, Kai, Phoenix, and Atlas really fun and hilarious and I just found them so enjoyable to read. Slowly, I found Aura growing on me as well, even if I felt that this book was a little predictable.
Predictability aside, The Lost Elemental was fun and interesting. Aura’s powers were really interesting to read about and I loved that the way they control their powers were so much different from what I was expecting.
I’m excited to read book two, The Last Aether when it comes out in October. Thank you to Social Butterfly PR for inviting me to read The Lost Elemental and providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
