Jillian has just finished her first year of college and figures she’ll have a nice quiet summer back home on the family’s goat farm. Those plans are forgotten, however, when she and her cat and goat are transported to the kingdom of Aeviternus, in an alternate world. She wants desperately to find a way back home and sets off in search of the one magician skilled enough to return her to her own world. She discovers the primal elements in this realm and encounters many different creatures along the way. She is befriended by twin clerics, but then she ends up in the hands of a sexual sadist and learns about the dark side of this land, it looks like she may be doomed. Her cleric friends rush to rescue her with the aide of two magicians. Will Jillian be able to get home? Will she find love in this brutal world? Or will she fall victim to evil? An erotic fantasy, The Elements is the first book in the Aeviternus Adventures series. It’s non-stop action and adventure across the kingdom.
Seemed to have all the plot elements of a typical hero’s journey.
Some scenes were a bit explicit (hence the content rating) but several were essential to the story.
Taog: A very surprisingly nice boy who saves her on more than one occasion. Their relationship is a little typical and abrupt but it works out. Like I said, his background makes him different from other love interests even if their relationship doesn’t.
Satisfying ending. I will probably read the rest of the series, even if they wouldn’t be at the top of my to-read pile.
