Peridot has lived a sheltered life. Raised on a remote island off the coast of England by an overprotective mother, Peri has never left the comfort of her home or met another child before. Until the night of her thirteenth birthday, when a strange boy appears at her window, filthy and malnourished, claiming to have escaped captivity from the mainland.
Her mother insists that the ways of the world are to remain concealed until her sixteenth birthday, but she unveils why they live in hiding, the mainland isn't safe for their kind - they are born of magick. Not magic from stories and fables, but real magick from the days of old. The power to control earth, air, fire, water and spirit; an Elemental.
On her quest to learn the truth, Peridot leaves the island on her sixteenth birthday only to finally comprehend why the truth was kept from her. Life on the mainland is unlike anything she could have fathomed possible, humanity is enslaved, and the remaining species are in charge. Peridot finds herself thrown into a world she wasn't prepared for, caught amongst an ongoing battle between those trying to save humanity and the tyrants seeking to keep them enslaved.
Struggling to command magickal abilities she doesn't fully understand or know how to control. Her abilities may be the helping hand needed to save humanity from an awful way of life, but at what cost? Within Peridot's grasp is the chance to save the world, and earth knows, the world needs saving...
