The better book: Elemental series by Brigid Kemmerer
As much as the description and idea seemed cool - eco-defenders of the world that use their nature-inspired abilities to do good - there were so many flaws and distractions that I couldn't bring myself to continue past maybe about halfway into the book.
- interesting idea
- Kaitlyn (sometimes)
- horribly awkwardly portrayed characters
- Kaitlyn falling for Micah because of.. his eyes, and vice versa because.. well I have no idea
- Cato supposedly being the old wise leader, though not pulling it off
- story that jumps from scene to scene with no background and little thought process leaving me confused to anyone's motivations for their actions
I hoped this book would seem better judging from all the rave reviews it has, but unfortunately the good can't outweigh the bad for me.
