"Errant Spark” (Elemental Trials Book 1) by Ronelle Antoinette is an original, romantic and highly creative thrill ride that pulls you into the mystical world from the beginning and doesn’t let up until the very last page. I was totally hooked from the opening prologue and found the writing to be engaging and kept me interested throughout. Ms. Antoinette’s narrative style is so beautiful, almost lyrical and poetic at times. Paints the scenes perfectly with vivid energy, but not so much description or ‘purple prose’ so as to weigh down the pacing (as happens so often in fantasy! Ugh!) There is a lot of passion, and it’s clear that the whole plot was well-thought out (had good focus, especially for being so complex). Fast paced, and I liked the hot chemistry with Jex and Enari, but also enjoyed (most of) the supporting cast as well. Definitely recommend for anyone who likes sci-fi/fantasy with lots of intelligent subplots, great mythos with the ‘elements’ and ‘powers’ and fascinating characters. Looking forward to reading more in this series. Love the ending (hot!) but now I need to see what happens next!!
