I really wanted to like this book. The synopsis made it sound really interesting and I wanted it to be good. But unfortunately it fell short. It did not live up to my expectations and there were too many things that annoyed me so that is why I am only giving it 2.5 stars.

The story itself was slow moving. Nothing that overly exciting happened throughout the book. The world that the author created I have to admit was very imaginative and captivating. I liked learning about how Arkana came to be.

The characters did nothing for me in this book. I didn't connect to any of them and that is a big problem in my opinion. I didn't feel that the relationship between Molly and Victor was believable. It felt too forced. Molly I felt acted very childish and naive for her age and she just really got on my nerves at times. Victor I did not get. One minute he wants to kill Molly and the next he is declaring his love for her. It was done in such a short space of time that it didn't feel believable.

Another big issue I had with the book was the writing. It didn't flow and some sentences felt out of place and choppy. There were numerous grammatical errors which normally I can overlook but there were too many to ignore here.

There didn't seem to any definite plot or point to the book other than the relationship between Molly and Victor. It seemed like the author would just throw in something to keep the story interesting but instead it just felt out of place and unnecessary.

I know there are others who have loved the book but sadly it wasn't for me.

Despite Fields of Elysium not being the sort of genre I'm usually into, I really enjoyed it! The story was good (although I sometimes felt too much was going on) and intriguing. I didn't particularly like the way it was written - it was sort of like the author had just gone around using a thesaurus on every other word at times - but the it was very much an un-put-downable book.

I know I'll definitely be reading the next ones

Every now and then I love to read a good fantasy novel and get away from reality, this novel did just that. Will read the next in the series

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating! 10 Feb. 2017
By Maria09 - Published on Amazon.com

Fields of Elysium draws you in from the first page. Originally, I started reading this to my daughter (she's homeschooled), but then I was hooked and didn't want to wait until the next day to read more, lol. Near the end of the book I found myself hoping there was a sequel. I usually try to stay away from trilogies and sagas just due to the price- I'm on a fixed income. But to my delight in not only found a sequel, but a prequel! I would suggest to anyone that is going to read Fields of Elysium, or has already, to read the prequel Safe and Sound. It is from Victor's point of view. Also a great read. I would definitely recommend Fields of Elysium to anyone. It's technically a YA but it's interesting and fascinating that I think any adult would like it. There aren't any cheesy moments like you find in some YA books. A.B. Whelan has a wonderful imagination!
3.0 out of 5 stars Enough potential to keep me coming back 7 April 2015
By elana - Published on Amazon.com

First of all, I really enjoy books with aliens. Everything is usually about werewolves and vampires and angels, so aliens are a nice change for me.

The plot had so much potential… a teenage girl, Molly, stumbles upon a wormhole while hiking and is transported to an earth-like planet called Arkana, where time moves faster and the world has been treated better. It was an intriguing idea and A.B. Whelan really did an excellent job of coming up with a unique and interesting planet. The world-building was very well done, and I only wish that there were more of it. I found myself feeling bored with the book when Molly went home to Earth.

Those parts of the book were bit tedious for me. I liked Molly and her family, and the people of Arkana, but pretty much all the other characters and plot lines of the book dragged a bit for me. Molly is a new girl in LA, and in the time that she doesn't spend on Arkana, she's mostly at her school kind of half-heartedly trying to make friends with people that are all basically snooty, idiotic teenagers who make drama and only care about artificial things and their public images. I just spent a lot of those scenes wondering what the point was of all of it. I would have rather seen her back in NJ with friends that really cared about her. I think it would have made the plot deeper to give her a reason (other than her family) to really want to split time between Arkana and Earth.

The hardest part for me was the ending. I had several issues with it. First of all, I didn't feel like any of the things that happened back on Earth in the last few chapters were necessary; they felt thrown in to me. Secondly, in the whole book nothing was mentioned about any supernatural powers that any of the main characters possessed. But suddenly, right at the end, a character has learned he has the exact abilities needed to solve all Molly's Earth problems. There was no hint of any of these powers throughout the book; nothing to make the reader anticipate it. It just happens all the sudden and then that's it; no real solid explanation. Thirdly, I did not like how Molly handled the situation with her new Earth "friend"… that girl made horrible decisions, ends up in a very sad situation, and Molly just gets her new Arkana friends to magically fix it and then erase the girl's memories of it. Really?? How will she learn from her mistakes? Life is hard sometimes, and you don't just get to erase things. So basically everything gets wrapped up in a pretty little bow and everyone gets their happy ending. Don’t get me wrong, I love happy endings and I love pretty little bows, but this just felt silly to me. Especially since there is a second book and there is plenty of time to solve these problems properly.

Also, the book needs to be edited. There are quite a few distracting grammatical errors. I realize it's a free book, but it lost a star for me because of these issues.

This story really has potential to be an amazing five-star young adult book, with a little editing and cleaning-up. The potential of the Arkana storyline has hooked me enough, though, that I'll definitely read the next book to see what happens next.
4.0 out of 5 stars I was expecting more 30 Mar. 2015
By Celebrity Readers AKA Carla Waluck - Published on Amazon.com

It was good, well written but honestly didn't blow me away. I give this 3.5 stars. This is the first book in the series. This book is classified as a YA romantic fantasy. It is pretty long at about 424 pages. There isn't a cliffhanger in this book which I am glad for.

I liked the story, and the descriptions of everything were decent. But I was expecting more of a climax. It seemed too simple and easily handled. There wasn't enough conflict. This upset me because everything else was done so well. The dialoge was good, the world building was good and the love story was good. I was excited to see how they were gonnna deal with the climax. Then...it fell flat. I found it to be a little on the slow side too.

Molly was an alright character. She was a little too needy for my tastes. She was obsessed with the new world but was able to keep it in check for most of the book. She did have an amazing capactity for bravery when the situation called for it. She was very friendly and outgoing and never really had a bad thing to say about anyone.

Victor is the strong silent type. He allows hatred to rule his heart and prejudice to scew his view of the strange Molly. He is always careful and cautious with his feelings and looks out for his friends faithfully. He may be broody but Victor sure knows how to romance his woman. I liked his charcter better.

Weston is the jovial fun time guy with the rich dad who everyone knows and loves. Quite typical if you ask me. He likes Molly from the get go but is no match for Victor.

Favorite quotes:

"You have no idea how frustrating my life is," he said quietly. "Every time I let you go, you take a part of me with you." "Then don't let me go."

I will probably not be reading the rest. It just didn't hook me in.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing World and beautiful writing! 21 Nov. 2014
By mkittysamom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have just wandered through a beautiful world called Arkana, and introduced to Molly and Victor! Whelan's writing is superb and her imagination is so creative! What a love story, and real love not lust... With real faith and trust. I am just mesmerized by the characters journey between two different worlds and even being challenged by difficult circumstances they all came together and learned hard lessons. This story touched my heart because it brought home the struggles of humanity and troubles of our world, Earth. What is real love, compassion, peace? The people of Arkana have gotten it right. True faith and devotion, and coming together as a community. Just wow! This book is wonderful! In light of all the paranormal lately, this book outshines them!

4.0 out of 5 stars An alien world, a love story 13 April 2015
By Sue K. Lopez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a good YA read with a twist in the love story - he is from an alien world. Molly has recently moved to California and is new at Beverly Hills high school. While discovering the area she stumbles into a wormhole taking her to another world. Time moves differently and the story shifts back and forth between the nearly perfect world of Arkana and earth. Her new "friends" on Arkana at first seem to hate her, but as she learns their amazing history everyone's attitude slowly changes. Victor's transformation and the discovery of this new world are a captivating story - different from the average fare of the YA romance. Am looking forward to the second book!
