Elemental Kingdoms By Lauren & Peter Arvo Review

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00013]

Once there were many kingdoms of myth and legend, but six stood apart from the rest. They may have lost their origins, but they still possessed their elemental abilities of creation as well as destruction. Their rule was about to be threatened by an unseen group, who have waited patiently to make their move.

A group of powerful royal blooded teenagers are about to experience the time of their lives, but also have their lives turned upside-down. They will have to go beyond what they thought possible, stretching their skills, friendship, courage, love, and powers to the breaking point.

About the authors 

At eleven years old, Lauren Arvo started working out the details to a suspenseful fantasy action novel. Three years later, in 2014, and with the assistance of her dad, Peter Arvo, that first manuscript became the basis for Elemental Kingdoms.

Lauren is a homeschooled teenager who loves reading and writing about ancient myths and legends. She also enjoys participating in the online role-playing community and competing in various online gaming events. Lauren lives with her parents, a cat, and a dog in rural Michigan.
Peter is a husband, dad, researcher, and Lauren’s coauthor.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  I first want to thank Lauren for letting me review her work.  It takes a lot of strength and courage to write a book, so high five.   The book is written in a certain way to me, that I can only describe as when you're  reading a play or part of an online role playing dialogue.  The descriptions are wonderful, but I would have focused more on the characters and plots.  Things are jumping around too much and it's a lot of different thoughts on one page. 

 In my opinion the book has a lot of extra wording added that just drags it out a bit more.  From the very first chapter I had a hard time keeping up with the point of it all and the extra narrative made everything very distracting throughout the book.   If this book were to be made into a movie, play, or video game it might make more sense to me.    I would not count this book out on your to be read list, because you might have a completely different view and it deserves to be read more.
