REVIEW
Rating: 5 Groupie Stars

Oh, Celia Aaron how I love thee. Let me count the ways… (well 5 ways anyway to equal the number of stars this book deserves)
1. Dual point of view
2. Mystery and danger.
3. Arabella Matthews
4. Benton King
5. The supporting characters..especially Porter and Logan
I love an author that can pull off a dual point of view. I have always found it fascinating that they can think from two different points of view within the same book. The seamless-flow back and forth creates a captivating read that I love… Even when I’m finishing the book at 2 in the morning.
Murder and mystery. Secrets and suspicion. Confidence  and comic relief.  Toss in a little okra theft and you have a gloriously addictive storyline.  The Elder is a well-rounded, well-developed slow burn novel.
Arabella Matthews. Benton King.  Have you heard the phrase “Opposites Attract”?Wellllll…let me tell you, it’s TRUE. Read it and see for yourself.
And last, but certainly not least, the merry bunch of supporting characters. Vivi is my only source of frustration and even that is minor.  I understand she is young (book tidbit: she is Arabella’s daughter) but one of my little peeves is baby speak for young kids. It is definitely a personal issue that I have, but it honestly doesn’t affect the awesomeness of the book.  The definite pluses for me throughout the story were Logan and Porter. The comic relief and character interactions that they created made the book for me.
The Elder was a book that keeps you guessing and intrigued until the very end. Celia Aaron has quickly become one of my go-to authors a guaranteed good read. I would highly recommend this novel.
