Elemental: The First

3 Stars/5

Thanks to Netgalley and Pauma Publishing for giving me this book to review.

Rose Frost is use to moving house every few months, so when she go to live with her Grandmother, it is not too bad, especially as she has childhood friends from her holidays here. With people disappearing, Rose and her friends must discover who is behind it and who she should trust. However, Rose has a gift which must be kept secret, but is it somehow linked to Halika Dacome a local legend and the person Rose has been dreaming about?

Elemental: The First is an enjoyable book which is really hard to categorise but is mostly a YA paranormal book. However, while I liked it, it was very slow and hard to get into and there was not as much excitement as there could have been.

Rose is a really likeable person, who is very mature for her age considering she has just moved and is away from her family. However, I just could not click with the secondary characters as Rose got to know and be really good friends with them too quickly seeing as they has only really known each other for a few days.

The book ended at a really odd point because it finished just as it was getting really interesting and it seemed like it ended a chapter or two to early. Elemental: The First is an enjoyable book which I would recommend to people who like paranormal YA novels.
