A handshake between strangers has never held so much promise for discovery.
When Stephen Wilson meets Lisa Morgan at his new school in Sloutenville, it is the simple act of extending his hand in greeting that flips both of their worlds upside-down. With the gesture, both discover that in some way they are connected, and that they share the ability to manipulate the elements, fire and water. Though their abilities vary, they share the gift of telepathy allowing them to communicate without words, which creates a bond between them stronger than either had expected.
As the two begin to spend more and more time together, David, Lisa's ex becomes wild with jealousy, launching multiple attacks on Lisa. In the fight against the dangers that await them around every corner, Stephen and Lisa soon discover that they are up against much greater odds than they had originally known, and that their struggles are far from over.
This book is definitely different from what I would usually read but it turned out to surprise me a little. Overall the character development was pretty good. It was concise and flowed throughout the entire book. The way the author presented the fated "handshake" was interesting in a way that it was almost unexpected?? At least I was not expecting it when it happened!
I enjoyed the build up of the relationship between Stephen and Lisa. There has to be some trust gained between them even if sometimes it appeared to be one-sided. Once the action starts though.....you need to hold on for a bumpy ride! It will be very interesting to see how this author continues this story!
I give this book 3.5 stars!
Kelvin O'Ralph is a student at the University of Wolverhampton, UK. He is an avid writer and
reader, who loves writing Fantasy/Romance novels. LS: The Beginning is the first book in his
fantasy series 'LS'. He released the sequel early October 2011.
Kelvin is a huge admirer of Emma Watson, the Harry Potter star and hopes one day she gets to act
as one of his characters. Personally, he'd love her to act the role of Lisa Morgan in this book. At
least, that's how he envisioned it while writing. Still in his teens, Kelvin has released four books on Amazon Kindle in 2011. He's working on the final book on the 'LS' series and also on a new project. Like most
authors, Kelvin hopes one day his books will be transformed onto the big screen.
