Guest Post Envisioned (The Elemental Prophecy #1) by Nikki Narvaez

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?

Three days. Three days seems like a lot of time, but not when you are racing to save the one you love. Not when time is against you.

Three days is all Jace has to save Brielle, to prevent both of their deaths. Both have more to battle than they ever imagined while they fight for their lives, their souls, and their love.

Will Jace be able to rescue Brielle, or will the fate of the world die with her?

Building a believable fantasy world

Making a memorable, unique world in the huge genre of paranormal romance was of huge importance to me. I wanted to create a world that was whimsical, yet modern, so that people could relate, but still get lost in the world that I created.I tried to make the Elemental world in The Elemental Prophecy as modern as possible, basing it in well-known mythology that people have already been exposed to. Detailing the setting and incorporating vivid, descriptive visual imagery is key to making the world believable. My editor always says, “show not tell,” so I try and make my writing reflect that as much as possible. I want the readers to fully immerse themselves in the book, completely losing themselves in the story as they are transported into the world I created.
