    One thought on “The Elemental (The Fire Trilogy, #1)”

    1. I do like a good prologue, and The Elemental has a fantastic one. Lots of tension, intrigue and a hum-dinger of a cliff-hanger to get you excited about diving into the rest of the novel.Obviously, though, the rest of the book has to deliver – if it starts to go downhill, you can feel let down and give up very fast. I’m pleased to report, however, that The Elemental absolutely does deliver! The story revolves around Catherine, an Elemental with the power to effect and control the elements (I [...]

    2. Catherine Van Dyk is a successful woman living in London, she also happens to be an Elemental, who can control earth, fire, wind and water. The prologue hooks you and when time skips backwards to the previous week you want to know how it reaches those scenes.I will say that I have never been to Shoreditch but it (and the characters) is wonderfully described and make you want to go there. The story captivates you from start to finish.I was a little worried that I was reading a Sex and the City bo [...]

    3. I’ve read a couple of fantasy/magic-based stories using the elements as the source for magic, and I liked the everyday approach to them in this story. Catherine and her gifted circle of friends lead pretty ordinary lives, but they use their gifts to help others in subtle ways every day. I WOULD say that there’s nothing flashy about the use of elemental magic in this book, but then again, there is the whole climax scene where they have to save the planet. Catherine, for me, was a very believa [...]

    4. The Elemental Has Something For AllWith The Elemental, Lisa’s first novel in The Fire Trilogy, think combining the best of ‘asteroids-threatening-Earth’ disaster movies with Sex And The City, and you’ve got it in one.The stunning prologue immediately tells us of a, quite literally, Earth-shattering disaster. Then we’re taken into the world of shopping and eating out as we get to know our sassy heroines – Kate and her friends – and slowly come to learn why they are the only way of d [...]

    5. The Elemental follows the life of Catherine Van Dyk, a successful modern woman living in the hustle and bustle of London. The book begins with a thrilling prologue which leaves the reader with so many questions they simply cannot wait to read more! The story then flicks back to the previous week and introduces the character before the events of the prologue. Lisa explains the characters so well and really paints a vivid picture in the reader’s mind. The same goes for the setting – London is [...]

    6. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The prologue was thrilling. I absolutely loved the brilliant balance between the 'sex in the city' lifestyle of the successful career women, their friendships and their love lives and the normality of magic, powers and the use of the elements in normal day to day conversation and life. Lisa has interwoven reality and the paranormal in such a convincing, detailed way that you can actually start to believe this is real. Just as Harry Potter seamlessly blends the mug [...]

    7. Read the book this weekend and was captivated by the story. Nice, fluent style. Would have loved it even more if there was more in the book of how Catherines powers and those of her friends worked, but maybe more will be revealed in book 2!

    8. Magical women, Halloween, romance, mystery, and the possibility of the end of the world. What more could you want from a book. Oh and it's set in London!
