The Element Wielders

The Element Wielders takes place in New York City, where our hero, Paul Flammia, The King of Fire, goes to college. But he’s not your average 17-year-old college student. He can also manipulate the element of fire, as well as turn into smoke, speak several languages, fly, is telekinetic, plays wide receiver for his school’s football team, and is of course a millionaire. Throughout the book, Paul uses his abilities to help get him and his friends through their numerous troubles. Everything from love triangles to mob bosses to invading aliens, so that he and his girlfriend Amie can live happily ever after.

Author Paul Ellison has created an imaginative world within this exciting urban fantasy novel. The magical abilities and other fantasy elements are creative and one of the reasons why I kept coming back to this novel; I just had to see what else Paul Ellison was going to come up with. From the different alien species to the various magical powers, readers will have plenty of things to dive into in this young adult book.

The novel reads like a screenplay, with each character’s name preceding their spoken lines with all the other parts of the narrative written in italics. It takes some getting used to, but once your over that hurdle the story is fun and entertaining.

Ellison does a fantastic job of immersing the reader in this story and moving the plot along at a nice pace; almost so quick that some scenes feel abrupt but the brevity works well in most cases. If you are a reader that is looking for a book that sparks your imagination and lets you fill in the details then this is a perfect novel for you. There are some grand ideas within this story and what seems like a deep backstory and lore that begs to be explored further.

The Element Wielders by Paul Ellison is a creative science fiction story. This visionary teen fiction novel will be a great read for those who are looking for a rollicking adventure story with a unique setup.
