Welcome to the world of Ann Fletcher, a simple, quiet physics student who can pass by a person and sense their aura. Little did she know that her ability could be the indication of her legacy. The world around her changes as David, Eidette, Oivia and Crispin enter her life to tell her that she is the Last Link in their chain. She is the fifth element, Earth. Will she fight the Epidromeas that threaten her city? The Last Link is a story of two levels.

I really loved how the plot is narrated though it is not properly connected. But yeah, it is not at all a difficult read.Finished it in a single sitting. The best part is that the author takes you to a different place, a different dimension of where science cab really amuse the readers.
From the beginning this book makes the reader curious by its brilliant narration and storytelling.
The plot is well structured. The book has a brilliant combination of science and fantasy and also imagination. The book can make the reader travel to various beautiful places with its amazing description.
Good characterization is another positive thing about this book.
The cover of the book is drawn well and eye catching.
Over all a must read book.
The Last Link was a really interesting novel and an enjoyable read!
It was absolutely awesome in the plot line- could've been better without so many physics lectures ;)-and the story and suspense building but I really wish there had been more in the terms of characters building.
Almost the first 40% of the story was spent introducing new characters, and it was a hard time to try to keep a track of all of them.
But once I got hold of it, it was a fun read, with a really good concept. It somewhat did remind me of Alyson Noel's Immortals series, which was also mentioned in the book, so I guess that's what inspired the author huh?
Characteristics of the five elements were incorporated in the protagonists Ann, David, Olivia, Crispin and Abigail. Eidette, Andrew, Eli, Kai, Alexandra termed as the dark forces possessed the traits of the five vices. Science and religion, often contradicting each other, are blended in right proportions which make this novel distinct from others in the sci-fi genre. The scenario of the five vices pitted against five elemental forces is something new and different. Yet, the fictional world woven by the author manages to charm you. Spiritual theories were beautifully explained by the principles of physics.
In the first half of the book, there were too many events happening simultaneously within a single chapter and it was difficult to place them together. It would have been better if the events were suitably structured. Pacing was inconsistent. Some chapters could have been shortened for them to be more concise and to have better readability.
It wouldn’t be appropriate to term this book as a quick read because it takes time to assimilate some of the spiritual aspects. However it is a rather refreshing one. This book is something that science enthusiasts and fantasy lovers would definitely cherish.
The story and writing style are the heartbeats of ‘The Last Link.’ This unique book conceptualises and blends science with spirituality to give very varied scenarios and managed to set a bizarre notion. The ultimate war of the good and evil is portrayed in rare fashioned mixing the concepts of science and sacred from Greek, Chinese and Indian cultures.
It takes a while before you get the hang of all the characters, their names, traits and how they relate to the story. However, once you know who is who, the story will fall into place by itself. The book starts with a slow pace and ends abruptly; the battle (which is the one thing the reader builds upon right from the blurb) in last few pages may have been more descriptive adding cores to allow the readers to visualise it to more perfection.
If you are into science fiction flicks, then this is the ‘go to’ book for you. Anyone having interest in science, physics and the connections of these to the world as we know it today will find this book to be an exciting read. With 72 pages of fine words, this can be your book to relax by at the poolside or on a long train journey.
Protagonist Ann always see herself as a normal student with deep connection in physics. She can see aura of the people around her which seems to be a normal trait to her. The surprise turn comes when she has to save her city from sinners by jumbling herself with four David, Eidette, Oivia and Crispin, who state her that she is the last link of their missing puzzle or elements (seriously sounds like some Hollywood movie.)
You need to read on to book to find out what happened next when these five elements faced sinners (evil forces) in the battle. This book is meant specially for those, whose brains always revolves round science, fiction and planet. If you always think that all these three things have the connection among them, then this 72 pages book is for you.
The initial pages of the book is little slow and may trick you with its lot of characters but you will perfectly imagine everything through the last pages. So stick to the book till the end.
