Then a star begins to fall, sparking an ember of hope and sending these two seekers on a treacherous journey into the unknown.
Unknown is the epic fantasy story of two young people who must overcome their own inner demons as they seek to fulfill the prophecy that might be the only way to save their world. In this first book in the Elements Trilogy, Kyla and Jethro journey from their home across a treacherous landscape of dangerous canyons and dark forests. Trolls, stinging dragonflies, and the army of Mezrah are a few of the things they must face as they search for the elements.
The elements took on a surprising form which was as unexpected to me as it was to the two main characters. The main characters themselves are realistic and fully flushed out, as are the accompanying side characters. Kyla is fierce and strong willed, but being a princess used to living in luxury she finds the journey harder and less exciting than she had anticipated. Jethro is a brave and strong man who is hopelessly in love with a woman he can't have and you can really feel his pain as he struggles to resist the temptation to give into his feelings once he's alone with Kyla.
This was a good beginning to a YA epic fantasy and I'm interested to see where the story and characters go on from here.
