Falcon Hyatt has a problem. For reasons unknown to him, he can wield all the elements, not only basics like fire and water but also those more advanced, like space and poison. Now the chaos element, the same one his parents' killer, Shal-Volcseck, wields, has awakened within him, with catastrophic results. To complicate matters, the Suteckh Empire has declared war on the capital cities of Va'siel.
Now he must venture out into the world with his friends, Lao, Faith, and Aya, on a mission to stop the Suteckh from taking over Va'siel, and find his parents' killer. All the while he struggles to suppress his newfound abilities. In his quest Falcon is forced to question what he's really fighting for, where his loyalties lie, and his own character. Is he truly a good person or an even more dangerous menace than the dreaded Shal-Volcseck? Element Wielder is the story of faith, love, and a young man's struggle to continue on his quest when surrendering to his emotions and giving up is so much easier.

I love the idea of the story (world), add maybe 5 hrs to the book with back story on main characters, and I'm in! much improvement needed, but...... I love the idea. I will check out the next book, but please make it longer, with more back story, take your time, this can be an amazing story! I look forward to the next one! sorry for the low stars, but I think this could become one of the grates if done right!!! good luck, I look forward to the next book!
To be truthful, I have never had anyone read to me, the story and voice was great, but I still love to read the book on my own.
I don't have a favorite character, the whole book kept me captivated and I fell in love with all the characters in the story.
I thought he did a great job on everyone of the characters. I didn't have a favorite.
I laughed a lot through the story.
This book is a must for those who have already read the book. Listening to someone perform the reading was spectacular. But as I said before, I enjoy reading the books better then listening to them. Overall you get a 10 from me on the storytelling.
I mostly likes me some sword and sorcery, not really in to sifi but theirs a place in my library for anything from John Scalzi.
Hmm I think so. The story base of the story was good but the character need a bit of work.
From this series yes. Another maybe. The writhing feels a bit to juvenile with overuse of stereotypes it make to story very transparent.
No, sorry but his voice annoys me more then a bit.
Maybe, would depend who is in it.
Most of the characters fell in to an over stereotypical archetype. The good looking shunned hero, the weird looking smart friend, the common born power hungry friend, the "Snape" professor, the list goes on. A few like this are safe but to many and it almost fell like it follows set scrip that you know what happens chapters before hand.
In general I like the audio books with multiple performers doing the different parts. There was nothing in particular wrong with the male who read, but I don't like one person doing all the parts especially when a male tries to read a female voice. It's much better for the story to have an entire ensemble cast of characters reading the different parts. I found it very distracting to the story to here the narrator reading female parts. The story was very compelling and interesting and it ended with me wanting to hear more
the overall story has potential. The author takes a little bit of the last Airbender and Harry potter, along with others, and makes a decent story. however it seems rushed. alot of details are looked over and time skips in various places
