LEGEND OF THE ELEMENTALS: BOOK 1, REINTRODUCTION is now free on Kindle!
Ryan, Erin, Kris, and Jason are heroes defined by the villain, unwitting assistants in a cataclysm brought about by an old man who calls himself... Devidis. The four modern, international teens awaken deep within a jungle canyon, a prison in the post-apocalyptic empire established by the despotic Devidis. Surrounded by danger, the four Elementals quickly embrace their new-found super-powered control of the elements—wind, fire, water and stone—under the guidance of Sensei, an imprisoned freedom fighter who believes that Devidis’ near omnipotence is a clear sign that the world is a persistent illusion in the mind of its evil emperor. And so the Elementals are forced to come of age in an increasingly hostile land. Though supernaturally capable, they are faced with a frightening possibility: are their hopes, goals, powers, friends, enemies, surroundings and selves... all an illusion?
At 27 years old, I have spent half my life writing LEGEND OF THE ELEMENTALS. I started this young adult series as a teenager myself, and my writing has been informed by my experience teaching English to young people throughout Asia and traveling the world, from the mysterious castles of Japan, to the ancient monuments of the Middle East, and the overgrown rivers of the Amazon jungle. Now that LEGEND OF THE ELEMENTALS is itself a teenager, it’s time to give this opening novel a kick out the door, to give the fantasy genre itself a kick of realism, a REINTRODUCTION. In my short time on this earth, I’ve grown up with easy Midwestern manners and cleaned up in the aftermath of the great earthquake near Tokyo. I've found meaning in real adventure and idle fantasy, and I am anxious to share these lessons of the Elementals with the world. In this spirit, I hope you'll consider downloading a 100% free copy of LEGEND OF THE ELEMENTALS, BOOK 1: REINTRODUCTION.
