Brielle De Luca thought she was just an average girl, despite her nightly dreams of an impending apocalypse, along with a gorgeous man that pulls at her soul.
However, on the night of her 18th birthday, everything changes when she is thrown into the Elemental World, a world where she is supposedly the One that is spoken about in an ancient Prophecy; a Prophecy that states she is the key to preventing an apocalypse.
Now she must learn to control her power over the four elements, all while dealing with the love and intense passion of her bond to the man from her dreams, Jace Vasquez.
Piece of cake, right?
He stepped closer, only a couple of feet away from me. He smelled heavenly, like rain and citrus. "Every night. I've been trying to figure out a way to find you, to save you, and here you are, so close all this time, and I never knew," he sadly said.
It was my turn to step closer. Tears pooled in my eyes as I said, "I didn't think you existed. I hoped that you did, but I thought I was crazy to believe that I could find you."
I reached out my hand to touch his face. When I did, a jolt of electricity sparked between us, spreading what felt like burning honey throughout every inch of my body. What was happening to me? Whatever it was, I didn't want it to stop; it was one of those pains that felt amazingly good, almost addictive. Jace's eyes widened as an astonished smile spread across his face. "Unbelievable," he said as he grabbed a handful of my curls at the back of my head, pulling my face to his to crush his lips to mine.
His kiss was desperate, just like his gaze in my nightmares, only multiplied. I opened his mouth with my tongue, tangling with his as our passion increased. I had never had a kiss come close to this one, and it had just started. He tasted exotic, a subtle sweetness present as he caressed my tongue with his. I clutched his shirt, twisting it in my hands as I tried to pull his body to become one with mine. Heat rushed in-between my thighs and pooled there, sending tendrils of burning warmth up my stomach. I never wanted this to end; the world could stop turning right now, and I would be oblivious, deliriously happy in Jace's lips.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A child will be born, who within, the blood of Air, Earth, Fire, and Water dwell,
The sky will fall to reclaim the Earth, and bring forth the depths of Hell,
Five will journey to the mountains cast from Medusa's gaze, to halt what Evil has been sent to raze.
Prophecy say what?!?
I love a good paranormal read and Nikki Narvarz does a great job on her debut 'Envisioned'.
Brielle De Luca is a high school senior who just wants to finish school and experience something different then the life she lives now. Little does she know that when she turns 18 her life would change forever when she learns that not only can she control one element but she can control them all.
For a while Brielle has had very vivid dreams of otherworldly "things" that keep her up at night, but what she can't shake from the dreams is the boy that reaches out to her for help but she can never save.
"Somehow, all of that wasn't as unsettling as when I saw him- those startling eyes, glowing like embers, burning into me with a look of desperation that I still could not comprehend. Why did he stare at me like I was his salvation? Why did he elicit feelings of longing in me like no other? Talons gripped at his shoulders, causing him to thrash and reach in my direction. They dragged him away into the blackness of the night, and his screams penetrated me to my soul."
Brielle has an intense connection to the guy from her dreams but she doesn't even know what her dreams mean.
Then there is Jace.
Jace, a Fire elemental, also has a recurring dream, where a girl reaches out to him but he can't save, that hunts him at night. Jace knows she has to be real and living out there somewhere.
I can't give too much away because it would take away from the story. But I'll just say that after Brielle and Jace meet sparks fly and the fate of their world ends up in their hands.
If you like being transported into another world where magic reigns and true love CAN conquer all then check out Envisioned.
