Tempest Child by Laura Eno
Published: May 26th 2011
As future Queen and Guardian of the Elements, Princess Skylather'cha'eab thought her worst nightmare was the impending find-a-husband party until events take an ominous turn. Now she must put her life at risk to save her Kingdom.
Armed with only a staff, a bow, and her wits, Skyla's world is turned upside-down when she enters the Crossroads and encounters the beast she's destined to kill. Does she have the courage to sort truth from lie, or will she die not knowing who betrayed her?
Again, i have lost myself in the world that Laura has made. Her description for everything is detailed, also easy to image it in your mind.
Skyla is a princes. She controls the elements; earth, fire water, wind and fire. When her father, the king, gets held as a hostage. She has
The first question that popped into my mind was 'what year is this story set in?' This is because first it talks about kingdoms and gowns and that sets the story in like fantasy world and then when she goes into town she changes into t-shirts and jeans. Which is pretty much confusing. Don't you think so? also, the names in this book was weird, well, of course it would be weird because it's in the time of knights in shining armors coming to the primeness's help. For example, the main character's name 'Skylather'cha'eab' is weird with the apostrophes, but i also think the names puts originality flair into the story.
Damn, Laura makes good characters! I don't know where she gets her ideas from but hey it's awesome. For example, Stick-Man. I was surprised at first but it fitted in with the story, pretty much.
The main character, Skyla, is not really confident but as the story going on you see that she gets more and more confident. Then she turns into ass-kicking type of girl from shy and non-confident type pf girl.
I would say Izzy is a confident character. The first time i heard his name i thought he was a girl and a sweet creature not a demon guardian. Even though, Izzy is a demon i still like him, it doesn't change my perspective on him.
The plot is filled withs twists and surprises. It's like a maze. The turn you take will lead to more problems and answers; you don't know what to except next. Never the less, it was short it was a quick and easy read.
