Children of the Elementi by Ceri Clark [Teenage Fantasy Novel)
When Jake discovers he is adopted it is the least of his worries. Suddenly he has to learn how to control his growing powers over the elements of air, earth, fire and water. Not only that but the fate of Eleria rests in his hands. Without the other lost children he will stand no chance against the Elerian Emperor, Aras who must find and kill Jake, or die himself.
Praise for Children of the Elementi:“The writer has produced an excellent story of two magically endowed power groups confronting each other across time and space. One race, the Elementi of the title, is linked to the classical four-element theory which imbues them with specific super-powers associated with Earth, Air, Water and Fire. Their High King has all four powers. The other group, the Magi, have different faculties and can create illusions. The plot is enriched and developed by the Magi’s search for the mysterious, hidden Citadel where the power of the Elementi is concealed and protected, and by the Elementi children’s search for one another. These basic factors taken together make a thoroughly intriguing and absorbing narrative. ?Good books that have much in common with Children of the Elementi are C.S. Lewis’s Narnia series, Tolkien’s Hobbit and J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter stories.” Academi Critique Service
