Love conquers all in El and Onine by K.P. Ambroziak. The Venusians came from the sky before El was born, and changed her world forever. Their celestial forms engulf the material world and turn everything solid into gold. El is a sapient and Onine is a Venusian. They are in love, but physical contact between Venusians and sapients means a fiery death for both. Set in a vivid fantasy world which seems almost like a post-apocalyptic or semi-dystopian Earth, Ambroziak weaves an intriguing creation myth that captures your interest instantly.
Obstacles between lovers can be hazardous, and they can be much more when the lovers are from two different races where unification is extremely ominous. Nevertheless, the union between fire (Venusian) and clay (sapient) is fated even though the impediments attest otherwise. The writing style is grand to read and the original story line is complemented by great characters with believable traits. The characters’ struggle against futility resonates effortlessly and is easy to relate to. I gravitated toward El almost immediately. As the story progresses, she becomes an immensely appealing character, dignified and astute. Onine is as enigmatic as they come, yet there are times when his feelings are quite transparent.
K.P. Ambroziak writes elegantly, poetically and imaginatively, and has a fascinating story to tell that readers shouldn’t miss. El and Onine is a rare excellent read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I predict it is going to be a huge hit with fans of the genre.
