LS: The Beginning by Kelvin O'Ralph

Title: LS: The Beginning
Author: Kelvin O'Ralph
Published by: Indie Author (ARC Copy)
Genre: YA Mystery/Paranormal
My Rating: 3.5-4 Stars


Description from Author:

A handshake between strangers has never held so much promise for discover.

When Stephen Wilson meets Lisa Morgan at his new school in Sloutenville, it is the simple act of extending his hand in greeting that flips both of their worlds upside-down. With the gesture, both discover that in some way they are connected, that they share the ability to manipulate the elements, fire and water. Though their abilities vary, they share the gift of telepathy allowing them to communicate without words, which creates a bond between them stronger than either had expected.

As the two begin to spend more and more time together David, Lisa’s ex, becomes wild with jealousy, lunching multiple attacks on Lisa. In the fight against the dangers that await them around every corner, Stephen and Lisa soon discover that they are up against much greater odds then they had originally known, and that their struggles are far from over.
My Review:
I received an ARC (Advanced Readers Copy) of this book by the author and while the book does have some editing issues and some grammatical errors, it was a pretty easy fast read. 
This was definitely a very unique story line. I loved the main characters uniqueness, their innocence and their love for one another as together they discovered  their powers but also about each other and themselves as well. I like how they seemed to grow together in their journey to discovery and I liked the slight mystery this story had to offer about who they were, where their powers came from and what was in store for them next. While this book does end on a cliffhanger, it is a nice one that leaves you wanting to find out what happens next.
While this is a rather young new author, I could see his writing grow throughout the story and I think we can expect some very great stories and books from him in the future.
