Quite possibly one of the most imaginative reads about Faeries. The plot is amazing, which has something for everyone. There is romance, angst, humour and Demons thrown into the mix. The story has lots of twists which will definately leave you wanting more. Callies journey from being a normal girl to having the power to control elements is one that will captivate you from start to finish. Can she use her new found powers save her mother and family from the Demons....you'll have to get the book and find out ;). All I know is I can't wait for the next installment!!! Loved it!

Wow, what can I say this book is brilliant . Takes everything you think you know about the world of Faerie and Demon and totally turns it on it's head. Loved how the faerie are made of of the elements and can control up to 4 ... That is until Callie & Lola turn up. There's heartache, love, creepy boys, Aussie humour, death , life all in a neat package .... Then at the end the author throws you a blinder and you're left gasping for the sequel, please hurry ! Been waiting a while for this book to arrive , soooo worth the wait and more.

First let me say that I personally know the author. She is a friend of my daughter and our family. Her book tells a wonderful story and I could not put it down! I am waiting for her second book as she left me hanging at the end of this book. Love the way the author writes!

1.0 out of 5 stars Was expecting more, disappointed! 21 Sept. 2011
By loves to read - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the cover on this book, so beautiful! With that said, I can't say the same for the inside in my opinion. This is really not my type of book. In all fairness I did read 107 pages of this book out of the 248 pages. It took 90 or so pages to actually get to the main plot of the story, where they actually find out who, what, where they are/come from. I really did not like these characters especially Callie and her sister Lola, the two main characters. They were whinny, crude (they were looking for some "man meat" really do people really say that) and I had a problem with the sisters saying they wanted to help get the other one laid, just can't imagine even thinking that one. The sister seemed to immature for the situation they were put in. They didn't seem to take it series, they just seemed to think it was all cool and scary at times. Just didn't seem to fit the story. Way to carnal and crude for me.

language mild
clean romance, crudeness, sex talk not sure what happens after page 107. not for my teen

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Loved It! 16 Sept. 2011
By Stacey Clifford (Sassy Book Lovers) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Holy Moly! What can I say except...I LOVED this book! The cover was the first thing that caught my eye, can you blame me?! *winks* It's simply gorgeous and what lies inside is even more enchanting..

From the very first page I was intrigued, and the more I read the more I became captivated by Cesya's story. Her writing style is fun and awe-inspiring, she brings her characters to life in your mind with each word. Your taken on a thrilling journey, with danger around every corner, many twists and turns you'll be on the edge of your seat. Powerful faerie magic. Tingling, head of heels, passionate, love. An adventure I'll be taking over and over again.

Callie is such an awesome main character, I loved her attitude, she cracked me up alot with her snippy remarks and come backs. The fights she'd have with herself was a hoot, who doesn't do that?! lol.
Her sister Lola is simply adorable she has more of a outgoing, snarky attitude and she'll have you in fits of giggles as well. Together they are a force to be reckoned with and so much fun to read about.
Now onto our fellow Aussie Oli, wow! It was such a refreshing change to read about an Aussie character. I simply LOVED his Aussie slang! It gave him a special individual quality, you'll just fall for him. He's most definitely a true blue, mate! *winks*

I have to share with you a little quote from Callie that had me spitting out my drink in giggles, I've never heard this expression before...

"I became so entranced my eyes practically licked him, raked over him, devoured him. You get the point. Hello, Tall, Dark, and Sexy!"

"My eyes practically licked him." *giggles* I seriously love it!

Cesya has done an amazing job for her debut novel, if you haven't read it yet I'd recommend giving it a go, or even popping it onto your 'to be read' pile.

Believe me, the ending will have you coming back for more. I know I'm hanging out for book 2 "Battle Scars"

3.0 out of 5 stars Great older-YA supernatural, but the parody-Australian grates 3 Sept. 2011
By Alpha Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Callista `Callie' Pierce hates birthdays. They are the day when she remembers her mother's vanishing and the growing strangeness within her . . . but her 22nd birthday is shaping up to be better than the one's before. Her best friends and blissfully happy couple, Ady and Emery, have thrown her a surprise party, complete with a night of dancing where Callie meets the dangerously sexy Cayden, and admires from afar her lovely Australian next-door-neighbour Oliver `Oli'.

But these two men in Callie's life prove to be the harbingers of change. As Callie falls for Oli's laid-back charm, she starts to notice those changes within herself grow and alter into something strange and other, something Fae. Along with her sister, Lola, Callie will learn more about her mother's disappearance and where she sits caught in the middle of two worlds.

`Elemental Reality' is the debut YA novel from Cesya MaRae Cuono, and the first in a new paranormal romance series.

Not surprisingly, the cover art of `Elemental Reality' was what hooked me. It's stunningly unique and drool-worthy - eye-catching and hinting at fabulous supernatural shenanigans within. And the cover art does not lie.

`Elemental Reality' is a book about Fae or `fairies' (faeries). It's YA, but leaning towards the older end of the spectrum for 17+ readers with a protagonist whose 22. I loved that the book was oriented towards older-YA readers, a group who are often forgotten when books frequently have protagonists who can't drink or drive and for whom sex is taboo. I loved this different age-range, because straight away the book is unique. There's no `meeting in biology' clichés or stealing lust-filled glances in the hallways. Phew! Cuono and Revolution Publishing seem very readership-savvy and understanding that as much as young adult is about `reading up', it's also a genre that older readers still enjoy coming back to.

The Fae storyline is very well done. It's not a revolutionary subject (Melissa Marr, Maggie Stiefvater, Aprilynne Pike having charted this fictional territory) but I appreciated that Cuono didn't get bogged down in Gaelic mythology or strict legendary Gothicism. She really put the fun into the fairy subject as Callie and Lola discover the joy of their powers and take their change in stride.

Something that did grate throughout the book was the poorly written Australian love interest, Oliver `Oli'. As an Aussie, I started out mildly amused by Oli's clichéd speech and Paul Hogan-esque appeal. But it did get to the point where he was so far off the mark it became a little annoying. Take the exchange below, for example.

"Would you like to come in for some tea?" The words tumbled out of my mouth before I could stop them.
"It's very nice to meet you too," he said, looking like some Aussie God. "It's a little too early for a cuppa tea isn't it?"
"What?" I asked, confused. "It's never too early for tea."
"Oh." He chuckled. "Sorry, I keep forgetting I'm not home anymore. When someone invites you over for tea in Australia it means supper. I don't think I'll ever get used to these Yank customs."

He's invited inside for some tea thinking that Callie means `supper' - yet he clarifies by calling it a `cuppa' tea? `Cuppa' means `cup of' - so he's assuming that Callie means "come inside for a cup of supper". Um, huh? Never mind that I, as an Aussie, would never use the word `supper' (what is this, the 1800s?) I would call it `dinner' - and we call tea tea over here, plus if it was eleven o'clock in the morning why would he think this crazy American girl is offering him a really early-bird dinner instead of the hot leaf-based beverage his countrymen also refer to as `tea'? I know, a flippant little exchange - but those trip-ups were so far off the mark that it did give me pause and took me out of the story while I sat there trying to interpret this pigeon-Aussie-English. Not to mention it had me thinking Oli was a complete moron. He also used the word `sheila' (only a backwoods sheep shearer or thoroughbred bogan would use this word . . . not a young Australian male) and called Callie `mate' at every opportunity (Urgh. You never want a guy to call you `mate', it means he doesn't like you as anything other than a `mate'). And he said `Ace' a lot . . . a lot! I think he was written purely for his Aussie appeal (I get it, people love the Aussie accent, and our guys are pretty smoking!) but his characterisation was that of an Aussie parody - written by someone who has never spoken to a living, breathing person from the land down under. Mind you, all of the above could be explained as Oli being Tasmanian . . . enough said.

Okay, so the love interest didn't really gel for me - but it's a testament to Cuono's dramatic storytelling that even when the very important `romance' element of this paranormal romance didn't work for me, I still came away from this book with a smile on my face.

Cuono writes high drama for her protagonists' with a joyful supernatural bent. There are twists and turns through the plot, as Callie learns of the price she must pay for being different. I loved that this was a book for older young adult readers, who are often an after-thought in a genre that is only just starting to realize it has a varying readership!
