Gaia finally knows who she is and what she’s meant to do. It’s only been a few weeks since the earth element woke in her. Now that she’s embracing her role as Mother Nature, she must journey with her group of power-wielding friends in a race against time to get back home before Azazel reaches them.
With the awakening of a brand new element, her true past with Edan, a dangerous decision that could change the very essence of who she is, and a traitor among her group, the broken road back to Terra will be a test of strength.
After all, even if Gaia doesn’t know it, war is closer than she thinks.

Excerpt from Spring:
Pink and Floyd arrived at their side of the arena. Edan gave the sign and Gaia threw the fireball towards the sky.
The ball burst into one firework, and Floyd separated away from Pink.
Pink threw a bunch of knives at the same time Floyd threw his. The way the twins fought, it looked like they were deadly synchronized swimmers. Flawless, precise and somehow beautiful.
Edan deflected all of Pink’s knives except two, which he caught before impact and threw back towards his opponents.
Pink managed to catch the knife but they were so fast that Floyd wasn’t able to stop his before it slashed a cut on his arm.
“Nice hit.” Floyd smiled as he cleaned the blood from his arm.
“Fifty points for Edan.” Priyam changed the marker in Edan’s favor.
“How?” Gaia asked, amazed at how Edan was beating Pink and Floyd at their own game.
“You thought Edan was only good with fire?” Donovan chuckled, proud of his friend. “Think again. He is a master with his katana.”
Floyd and Pink fought with knives for a while, unable to hurt Edan. They tried and tried until Edan pushed them outside the arena with fire.
“Edan wins!” Donovan cheered and switched the marker.
Priyam removed the hand that was covering her eyes. “How is it that they don’t burn to death?” she asked Donovan.
“Have you ever noticed that above a flame there’s a distorted group of waves. A refraction?” he said.
“Like in a mirage?”
“Exactly. When the hot air crashes with the cool air, it creates a small field. That camp field hurts but doesn’t burn.” Donovan pointed at Pink who was in perfect condition. “He uses that camp field to push them. That way the fire never touches them.”
“We use the same field to keep the flame away from our clothes.” Gaia turned herself on fire. Her clothes remained intact. “This way we don’t have to use that damn black leathery suit,” she laughed.
“Cool.” Priyam touched the field.
“Who’s next?” asked Pink as soon as she arrived at the safe zone followed by her bruised twin.
Hunter took out the last pebble. “Gaia.”
The whole group turned and stared at Gaia as she stood up. “Are you sure?” asked Priyam.
Gaia patted her pants as she got ready. “Why not?”
“Didn’t you hear? Didn’t you see?” Priyam pointed at the marker. “He’s undefeated.”
Gaia faced the arena. “For now.”
