The Elementalist - a fantasy novel by Andy Coughlan

Free  book on Kindle promotion day: March 15th 2013

The weather has not been kind of late, and Barin the Elementalist is sure there is something, or someone, behind the crop failures and the destruction it's left in its wake. 

Unfortunately, he's not allowed to investigate; he's under house arrest, just his two cats for company, and none of his precious equipment that give him access to the spirit world.

When a mysterious storm magically transports a ship full of Pirates half way around the world, and dumps them right outside his village, Barin is forced to take matters into his own hands. 

But his investigations don't go terribly well and he soon discovers that he's taking the heat for some serious misdemeanours by a man thought to be a friend. On top his two cats are now the size of lions and belching fire, and he's got a horde of undead creatures at his door.

"Rather than another fantasy book about wizards and goblins, The Elementalist proves to be very accessible to almost anyone, featuring elements (excuse the pun) from many different genres of storytelling, all expertly woven into one rivetingly good yarn. And with more twists and turns than a twisty turny thing, it's a book that will keep you guessing, and ensure that you keep turning the pages until the bitter end." Luke Yates – REACT Magazine

"When I first started reading this book I was immediately reminded of the exciting adventure found within the pages of the Harry Potter series. Andy Coughlan is a talented writer that has created a book that fantasy fans are sure to love. If you're looking for an exciting read, look no further than The Elementalist."
