Don't miss Planet iPad's Free Book Alert, Friday, December 3: Final Days for a Free Short Story Pre-order from Bestselling LA Suspense Novelist Stephen Jay Schwartz, plus ...more details on Children of the Elementi
Here's the Set-Up:
Step into the other-worldly realm of the Children of the Elementi, where the forces in conflict in the place called Eleria boil over, rubbing thin the world in which Jake lives.
When Jake discovers he is adopted it is the least of his worries. Now 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, who must find and kill Jake, or die himself.

“Panic flashed through her mind as the door in front of them splintered. She grew cold with fear as the tip of a sword broke through, announcing the invader's arrival.
“The world exploded into fragments and a bright, blinding light overtook them.”
And from Chapter One: “Blocking out the sound of shouting from downstairs, Jake carried on tapping at his keyboard. Every night! He slammed the keys down on his keyboard with mounting frustration. His parents had never been like that.
“He stared glumly at the nonsense he had just written.”
