“As daughter of our ruler I grew up in the crossfire of an ongoing war… All I’d ever wanted to be was a great warrior and ultimately lead my people into victorious battles.”
With only a small army at her command Halíka Dacomé, a skilled warrior and daughter of the Elemental King, is ready to lead one final battle to save her planet. A battle against the savage, bloodthirsty Primords who want to extinguish the diminished race of Elementals once and for all.
But before battle commences her father is given an ultimatum from the enemy leader, Arfron Uhnok. If the king agrees, Halíka Dacomé must marry Arfron Uhnok to prevent further bloodshed. If the king disagrees they, as a race, will all perish.
Horrified by her fathers decision Halíka Dacomé leads her army onward regardless of the consequences. Because her heart belongs to another. A love that blossomed many years ago. A love that her father has forbidden.
Halíka faces her toughest battle yet and learns that not all battles are those fought with a sword…
The Battle for Arcanon Major is an epic love story set against the backdrop of war and is the first Prequel to Elemental: The First.
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.
The Battle for Arcanon Major is an interesting story. The history of the Primords and the Elementals is well told. It was a fast read and kept my interest throughout. I often have trouble wrapping my head around science fiction but this story was easy to follow.
The battle scenes were described well enough that it was easy to picture what was happening but they weren’t too graphic, which is a real plus especially in young adult fiction.
I did wish the characters were more developed. To avoid spoilers I’ll just say that there were times I should have been elated or devastated for Halíka Dacomé and her friends but I didn’t because I didn’t feel much of a connection to the characters.
This is definitely a book that young adults would enjoy.
Available on Amazon.

Elemental: The First, Elemental: Origin and The Battle for Arcanon Major draw in Alexandra’s love of strong women characters, sci-fi, history, romance and a little warmongering on the side!
