"'My name is Larkspur, and I am an Elemental.' My people use the power of the earth to sustain life and defy our enemies. I am the half-breed bastard child of a king. I was not meant to survive the trials cast my way. Yet, here I stand. The world has deteriorated in the twenty years I was imprisoned in an oubliette. The Elemental families are rife with deception, violence, and madness more than ever before. A voice I know all too well calls me to do her bidding. A voice I no longer wish to hear. The mother goddess begs me to save the four families, and stop my nemesis. To do it, I must face each of the Elemental leaders and take from them the power they hold close: the stones I once entrusted to them. Now, the secrets I unearth as I pursue the stones shatter everything I know about my world, my beliefs, and everything I was taught. Yet, I am not the naïve girl I once was. If I am to see this through, I must completely embrace the new reality of my life and all its obstacles while forging ahead. Four stones abused. Four families broken. A half-breed princess as their only hope. Through it all, the one I love waits for me to find him. When I do, will he, like everything else in my world, not be what he once was?"--Page 4 of cover.
