By- Nikki Narvaez
Expected Publication Date- September 20th, 2013
Three days. Three days seems like a lot of time, but not when you are racing to save the one you love. Not when time is against you.

Will Jace be able to rescue Brielle, or will the fate of the world die with her?
My Review of Envisioned (The Elemental Prophecy Book #1)
Brielle leads a sheltered life. And life on an island is not necessarily the life a teenager wants to lead. But due to her father's over protective tendencies Brielle never leaves the island. But every girl needs to celebrate her 18th birthday. And her best friend helps her do just that, but what they don't expect is for things to turn dangerous. And when men show up and try to take Brielle things get a little....strange. Brielle is suddenly thrown into a world full of elemental magic and she is now front and center.
Brielle is an elemental. But not just any elemental. It is believed that she is the One that can wield all 4 elements and potentially stop an apocalypse. Only she doesn't even know it. Well until all hell break's loose on her 18th birthday. And after she sifts through all the secrets and lies told to her all her life Brielle realizes she doesn't have much time to figure out how to control her powers before the world comes crashing down. But there is one bonus, a sexy as hell fire elemental named Jace.
A lot happens in Envisioned and I do mean a lot. As soon as Brielle discovers her entire life has been a lie it is just one thing after another. And it seems her life is unraveling faster than the secrets can be revealed. Now this is not necessarily a bad thing. It definitely keeps the story moving, but I felt it was a little too much, too fast. There were so many things happening that I sort felt like I was getting whiplash from it all.
Now I can say that I liked Brielle and Jace. Both are tenacious and completely likable characters, with kick butt powers. And I know that their connection has a purpose and all but it was a little hard to take at times. And yes I liked the two together, I just found their total acceptance and love of each other a little hard to stomach.
That being said, I did enjoy the overall story, once I was able to stop thinking about the details and let myself get lost. And I really did like the way Nikki Narvaez used elemental magic in the book and the ways that it is wielded. The characters are pretty likable and the world is one that would be fun to explore, but it just wasn't for me. But it might be just the thing for you.
