        I was sent an ARC of this book for review The following is a non biased spoiler free reviewBritta Jenson brings forth a most intriguing story that at its end left me wanting to know about the universe she’s crafted The main characters Leonora and Dex escape their village in order to set out on a much needed journey that inspires growth and forces both of them to figure out who they really are Eloia Born is than just a simple love story It’s about leaving your comfort zones in search of life's truths It plays on your emotions and forces you to accept things that you may not want to It does this wonderfullyThere are a few areas explored in the novel Each of the places is uniue inhabiting a diverse group of people The story is rich with discovery and will leave the reader itching to know about all the locations and the people that inhabit them    The journey is comprised of four areas the village in which Leonora and Dex grew up a desert land with giant dog like creatures; a rainforest with an interesting tribe and talking furball creatures and a land full of vibrant beautiful architecture Each one acts as a different level of self discovery At certain times through the book the story starts to drag on a little bit too much After the first two times I realized that this was the way the author decided to transition the story from one location to another At the beginning of the book it was slightly frustrating but as the story progresses it’s a mechanic that works Other times I felt like the story may have transitioned too fast Does the pacing need some work? Yes but not very much Overall I can’t really complain about the pacingOut of all the places the two journey I’d say the rainforest is the most interesting part to me There is a certain character there that uickly became my favorite While each piece is nicely crafted it is at times hard to picture exactly where they are or what is going on around them It’s right on the cusp of being a wonderfully painted picture except it’s missing one or two puzzle pieces Sometimes it’s hard to tell if that was done intentionally by the author In some instances the settings are set up in visual detail where in other situations the description or use of scent takes a larger role Like everything else in the book it’s a very give and take feeling the entire journeyAs the story explains the two main characters are blind Some time ago a mist came over the lands inflicting mutations and defects on all the inhabitants of the planet Each group of people experiences a different kind of deformation The descriptions that Britta uses to describe these people how they look interact and behave upon meeting the main characters is uniue to each of the four areasEloia Born is the first book out of two Thankfully there are a good number of uestions that remain to be answered The book leaves you wanting to know about the lore and universe presented here I’m excited to see where the story goes This book lays the foundation for many books to come if the author decided to head that route While I can’t address the uestions here without giving a lot away I’m sure many readers will have the same uestions by the end Britta has laid a rock solid foundation here with a load of room for home expansion I would highly recommend this novel for anyone looking to immerse themselves into a new beautifully crafted YA world

    Overall this is an interesting story with uniue characters However there were times when I felt like the characters were sharing an inside joketalking about things it was assumed the reader would know even though they hadn’t been told in the narrative Some of the major plot lines of the story also felt rushed giving it a jumpy feel especially at the end I think a lot of this was due to enthusiastic inexperience and am sure it will get better as she continues writing I look forward to the next installment

    Contains no spoilers; review based on ARCI have been looking forward to this for uite some time I dedicated my Thanksgiving break to having time to enjoy this without interruption and I am so glad I did Once I started reading I honestly didn’t want to stop I admit that I was nervous when I saw the story would be told from two alternating points of view I was also slightly leery when I realized the author was going to dedicate her first sections to presenting a backstory for Leanora and Dex However I am thrilled to say that Eloia Born was nothing like my past experiences Just as I was getting to my “come on already” point the story took off The split narrative adds a depth to the story that would not have been present otherwise each section blending nicely with the previous section while expanding it in some way for the reader While Leonora comes across clearly to me throughout I was having trouble understanding Dex after they left Asanis Again the split narration was the perfect way to show Dex’s humanity and I was able to connect with him so much so that the turn of events in the tower of Nedara left me in complete shock and exceedingly angry And the humanity did not stop with the humans The author blended these very same characteristics into the animals as well I am a sucker for animals and to see how even the hardest human in the bunch responded to the animals – well that was a reward all by itself Who won’t love the gwynbee and ulsos? It was a pleasant surprise to discover that each of the four regions of this world aligned so perfectly with recognizable growth in our main characters Neither the recurring theme of acceptance nor the importance of being comfortable in your own skin can be missed This story reminds me of all the things I like so much about Victoria Aveyard’s Red ueen series It is a story of growth not everything ends on a happy note everyone has something to add to the story and the journey was hard but such is life I believe that many young adult readers will find a bit of themselves in this story and perhaps even a desire to “choose kind” If we can learn to recognize the gifts in others realize that there is to life than what we see and honestly try to understand one another this world – and our individual lives – could be very differentRich in detail and clearly enjoying her wordsmithing without being wordy the author has presented a well defined world likeable characters and a compelling story I am looking forward to receiving my printed copy the next book in the series and of this author in the future #eloiaborn

    I purchased this book at the Twin Cities book festival from the author Finally months later I've taken the plunge Overall Eloia Born is a compelling read set in a diverse world with varied characters and adorable animal companions After our two main characters are expelled from their home they go on a journey of discovery and growth down a path neither one of them expects Jensen explores the way adversity can alter people for good and ill I enjoyed exploring the various landscapes and how the characters learned about themselves with each encounter While most often things were described very well there were other times I just couldn't picture what was happening The first land Asanis could have used further development Everywhere else in the book the landscape and society were beautifully described Asanis I couldn't picture beyond trees and some water Was it a forest arising out of a lake? Because there seemed to be swimming around large trees The movement in the first section was confusing Some of the fight scenes didn't come across clearly For instance if there are warriors pointing spears at me I find the likelihood of grabbing a spear out of one of the warrior's hand and defending myself against multiple attackers highly unlikely So there were a few parts I had trouble suspending disbelief That being said I enjoyed the diversity and adventure Elois Born offers up It was a compelling read with a uniue world and intriguing characters who suffer from various forms of disability Plus I definitely want my own gwynbee can that be in the next marketing campaign? Recommended I'd read from this author

    Everyone was left completely blind after the Mists came Everyone that is except for Leanora and her father—but that’s a secret The first of manyLeanora can see fragments if the light is right Otherwise it’s darkness like everyone else Her friend Dex isn’t so lucky The two must travel alone through desert rainforest and wilderness in order to discover the truth behind what plagued their community And they might not like what they findBritta Jensen’s Eloia Born allows us a glimpse of what it’s like to experience life love and peril without the luxury of sight It’s a beautifully crafted story that will leave you laughing crying and wondering what other secrets the planet of Eloia holds

    Let it be known that my low rating has to do with my dislike of sci fi because I can't always grasp what's going on The adventure was interesting but I couldn't connect with the characters and all the new animals introduced made it hard for me to remember what was what

    The author creates a fascinating universe with rich detail and truly uniue ideas I would love to spend time with these characters and their world I think this book would be really great as a movie as it is very fast paced
