Review: Elementum by Toni L. Meilleur

Elementum by Toni L. Meilleur

Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand Publishing
Genre: Fantasy Romance

Heat Rating: 3



Silver Ainsley was determined to be the first linguist to decipher the Elementum. The ancient tome seemed to call to her, and she could not resist its temptation. Removing the book from its protected state proved to be a disastrous mistake. For now the magic called to nightmarish dark forces, intent on wiping out humankind.

Her only hope is the handsome and powerful Sidhe Warrior Quaede who comes to her aid. They are the only hope man has of surviving. But Silver does not know what she should fear more: the end of the world as she knows it, or losing her heart to a being unable to love.

Desmond’s Review

Elementum is a paranormal romantic fantasy novel about a young woman, Silver, who is something other than what she believes she is and Quaede, a warrior protecting a realm. Within this book, as in others of its type, these two follow an epic journey, procuring artifacts necessary to save, in this case, humanity. A pretty tall order for a linguist, such as Silver.

The characters, Ms. Meilleur creates are rich in their diversity and, as novels of this type are wont, possess flaws and magic. They’re fun to follow and the dialog, while stilted at times, moves the adventure forward and, from time to time, provide wanted humor.

Ms. Meilleur has created some interesting and inventive sex scenes, both between the protagonists and between Silver and two women. With the exception of the attraction between Silver and Quaede, this quest reads like a video game plays, capturing items to thwart devastation.

Elementum is a good read with Ms. Meilleur providing a rich world of characters, magic and adventure, providing the entertainment you need in a book of this type. This is an ambitious work and delivers on many levels.

Desmond’s Quote: “A fun adventurous epic journey, full of magic, fantasy and fun. The sex is inventive, the characters rich and the humor is well placed.”
