In a post-apocalyptic
world, life depends on the Elements of Earth, Air, Fire or Water.
Everyone has just one of those Elements deep within their being, an
Element that has entered before birth and which shapes their lives
and abilities. Survival of the new society without industry or
technology depends on skills of the individuals to work with the
Elements of Nature.
Sometimes, rarely, the skills develop and that person becomes a
Master of their given Element, keeping the skills for life and being
able to control aspects of their own Element for the benefit of
everyone far beyond the abilities of the average person.
Jetta clearly has the Earth Element. From a young age she was
completely in tune with the animals around her, and although she was
unaware just how powerful her abilities could be, it soon became
apparent to the Earth-Masters that she would become one of them and
at the age of just seventeen she would be one of most outstanding
candidates ever to start her training. Yet, she is constantly drawn
to the lake and her dreams are plagued with dark water as well as
falling stars and strange creatures. More strangely still, Jetta
starts showing every indication that she may have some sort of Water
ability, even though it is unheard of for anyone to have more than
Finn, a young man whose Water Element is so strong that he will
inevitably become a Water-Master, cannot resist the attraction he
finds for Jetta, nor she for him. But Finn has a secret that has
something to do with a power-hungry Fire-Master, and he is terrified
that he may be putting Jetta at risk.
