Brielle De Luca thought she was just an average girl, despite her nightly dreams of an impending apocalypse, along with a gorgeous man that pulls at her soul.
However, on the night of her 18th birthday, everything changes when she is thrown into the Elemental World, a world where she is supposedly the One that is spoken about in an ancient Prophecy; a Prophecy that states she is the key to preventing an apocalypse.
Now she must learn to control her power over the four elements, all while dealing with the love and intense passion of her bond to the man from her dreams, Jace Vasquez.
Piece of cake, right?

He stepped closer, only a couple of feet away from me. He smelled heavenly, like rain and citrus. “Every night. I've been trying to figure out a way to find you, to save you, and here you are, so close all this time, and I never knew,” he sadly said.
It was my turn to step closer. Tears pooled in my eyes as I said, “I didn't think you existed. I hoped that you did, but I thought I was crazy to believe that I could find you.”
I reached out my hand to touch his face. When I did, a jolt of electricity sparked between us, spreading what felt like burning honey throughout every inch of my body. What was happening to me? Whatever it was, I didn't want it to stop; it was one of those pains that felt amazingly good, almost addictive. Jace's eyes widened as an astonished smile spread across his face. “Unbelievable,” he said as he grabbed a handful of my curls at the back of my head, pulling my face to his to crush his lips to mine.
His kiss was desperate, just like his gaze in my nightmares, only multiplied. I opened his mouth with my tongue, tangling with his as our passion increased. I had never had a kiss come close to this one, and it had just started. He tasted exotic, a subtle sweetness present as he caressed my tongue with his. I clutched his shirt, twisting it in my hands as I tried to pull his body to become one with mine. Heat rushed in-between my thighs and pooled there, sending tendrils of burning warmth up my stomach. I never wanted this to end; the world could stop turning right now, and I would be oblivious, deliriously happy in Jace's lips.
Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. Elementals. Yes, I do believe we have an alternative world, where magical forces have a major role. Sprinkle in the Greek Gods, like Zeus and Hades, steep it in Greek mythology and you have a very intriguing adventure.
I love chicks who kickass. Envisioned definitely gave me a heroine that did just that. In the beginning, it was a little slow. I was a little worried that Brielle was going to be the whiny, why me, and I can’t deal with this type. Surprise! She may not have known what was going on but she immediately started kicking ass and taking names.
“Yes, yes, you are the shit”

Along the journey, new characters arrive and help to fill a team that’s to save the world. But there are people out there wanting to kill Brie. Pieces to the puzzle unknown.Council members with hidden agendas? Gods overstepping bounds to help, Gods stepping in to stir the pot.
Towards the end of the book I wanted to hurt some people and I loved how there were some kick ass moments. There are some steamy and funny moments mixed in with the adventure. So overall I’d rate this book a 4. This world is just getting started and I feel it’s only going to get better with the next book. Now, that the basics have been established and relationships developed, the story will shine through. I love how now Jace has his moment to come through and save his mi amante. I will definitely continue to follow this series.
