If you’re in to Young Adult Urban Fantasy, be sure to check out Elemental (The Elementals, Book I) by Kelbian Noel.
Here’s the set-up:
Baltimore Land is a typical teenager whose parents embarrass her completely. She wants nothing to do with her family’s beliefs and is convinced their silly rituals only exist to make her life miserable. All she wants is to be normal, but the fact that her parents are witches seriously messes with her social life.
She’s doing alright, with a boyfriend who seems to like her just the way she is and an awesome best friend who is fascinated by her lifestyle, but she’s not the most popular girl in her small Utah town. In fact, she’s kind of the town freak.
When her boyfriend’s ex tries to win him back, Baltimore’s emotions get the
best of her and she soon realizes her parents’ beliefs aren’t so silly after
all–they’re just the beginning.
About the Author:
From a very young age, Kelbian loved to read. She found herself engulfed in novels by Janette Oke and L.M. Montgomery, but never seemed to find herself in the pages. At the age of 11 she declared she would write stories that had to do with her own experience, and be the youngest author in history. But life was full of baseball, homework, best friends and boys.
Decades later, having studied writing in college and pursued it as a career, Kelbian decided it was time to get back to her dream. This time life’s distractions couldn’t shake the feeling that the world needed to hear Baltimore’s story. At least those who would listen! A year later, Kelbian is excited to introduce Elemental to the world with hopes someone will love the story as much as she does.
Kelbian lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with her two children.
