Rated 5.00/5 based
on 1 reviews
Phantom tornadoes, out-of-control trucks, haunted fireplaces, and self-heating bathtubs? It’s been a rough week for Aspen, and that’s saying a lot – especially because three years ago, she awoke alone in an empty cabin, not even knowing her own name. Unfortunately, things are only going to get stranger from here as she finally starts to uncover who - and what - she is. More
Ever since Aspen (as she calls herself) awoke three years ago in a sparsely-furnished cabin in the forest, not knowing her name, where she came from, or where she was, she’s been forced to live entirely off the grid. It’s a lonely life she’s grown accustomed to – until now. Suddenly, strange things are beginning to happen all around her: a raging tornado manifests out of nowhere, narrowly saving her from an out-of-control semi-truck; her frigid bath water inexplicably becomes luxuriously hot; without warning, the wood fireplace erupts a plume of white-hot fire straight into her living room.
Unfortunately, things only get stranger when Aspen decides to audit a nearby college class, as the handsome associate professor, Aiden, takes immediate umbrage to her presence. When he confronts her after class one day, she panics, causing the ceiling lights to burst. That’s when Aiden realizes what she is – but he’s not the only one whose attention Aspen has attracted.
They strike an unlikely friendship when Aiden tells Aspen that, like him, she’s an Elementalist; someone who can wield one - at most, two - of the five elements. But unlike Aiden, a gifted Pyromancer, there’s something even more remarkable about Aspen – she’s the first Elementalist in centuries who can wield all five, catching the attention of an organization called the Asterians. While seemingly-utopian on the outside – after all, they provide training, medical services, social events, and even offer Aspen a generous stipend to join – Aspen realizes over time that there is something very sinister about the organization. They may hold the answers to Aspen's past... But by joining them, could she be in for more than she bargained for?
In her mission to discover who – and what – she is, Aspen must learn to control her powers, navigate her budding romance with Aiden, and finally uncover the startling truth about her family.
