    DescriptionA lost colony is reborn in this heart-pounding fantasy adventure set in the near future. Enter the world of the Elementals, which James Dashner called "completely gripping and full of intrigue, revelation, mystery, and suspense." Sixteen-year-old Thomas has always been an outsider. The first child born without the power of an element--earth, water, wind, or fire--he has little to offer his tiny, remote Outer Banks colony. Or so the Guardians would have him believe. In the wake of an unforeseen storm, desperate pirates kidnap the Guardians, intent on claiming the island as their own. Caught between the Plague-ridden mainland and the advancing pirates, Thomas and his friends fight for survival in the battered remains of a mysterious abandoned settlement. But the secrets they unearth will turn Thomas's world upside-down, and bring to light not only a treacherous past but also a future more dangerous than he can possibly imagine. Written by an award-winning author, this dynamic series is perfect for fans of dystopian thrillers like James Dashner's "The Maze Runner" and Marie Lu's "Legend." "Plenty of action for readers who enjoy survival stories with a twist of the supernatural and a hint of romance." -"School Library Journal" "The novel's captivating storyline, rapid pace, and cliffhanger ending are sure to leave fans of novels like Grant's Gone series absorbed with the action and anxious for a sequel." -"Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books" "Engaging characters and plenty of mystery, adventure, and action." -"Publishers Weekly"

    Author Information
    Antony John is the Schneider Award-winning author of "Five Flavors of Dumb "and" Thou Shalt Not Road Trip." For many years he lived in North Carolina and was a regular visitor to the Outer Banks. He was bewitched by the beauty of the landscape and fascinated by the legends that surround them. Although "Elemental" is set in the future, it has its origins in the islands' remote past--an era of sailing ships, small, independent colonies, and still-unsolved mysteries. Antony now lives with his family in St. Louis, Missouri.
