Overview

Winter is a predator, taking villages one at a time, leaving the people either dead or half mad.

For thousands of years, the Elementarí-spirits of the elements- have slept peacefully under the watchful eye of the Terakhein, a guardian tribe that protects them. But now that the Elementari have started to awaken, the Terakhein are nowhere to be found.

In Gaelastad, where the trees never die, eighteen-year-old Jonathan is haunted by dreams of a little girl: the last of the Terakhein. Fleeing from enemies across treacherous lands, Jonathan must survive and find the girl. Fortunately, help comes in the form of Bryn, a terrible fire spirit, and Morgan, the most beautiful-and deadly-of water spirits. But are they strong enough to give him the time he needs to find the missing girl and stop the tide of destruction?

I am about half way through this book and can't put it down! The plot is original and the characters draw you in and make you feel invested in their journey. I love this genre of "Lord Of the Rings" meets "Game of Thrones", yet written with a new and exciting twist. I will be very disappointed when I am finished but look forward to a sequel!!
