Teaser | Elementris by Christina Mobley


A single bud formed on the end of a long thorny stem. The smell of fresh cut grass floated in the air. The sound of a summer storm echoed across the sky. Lightning and teasing thunder surrounded the small town. Little fingers pressed against the rain sprinkled glass, heated hand prints leaving marks on the weathered window. Her mother stared up at her for a moment, closed her eyes, and got in the car. The fiery-haired little girl screamed from the upstairs window, her tears falling freely as her mother drove away. A music box lay on the floor, broken; somehow its merry tune still playing. She pressed her face against the foggy window, begging for her mother to come back as she pounded her little fist against the glass. Loud thunder shook the window and lightning popped in the wind. Then…at just five years old, Ava Vangeretta had no idea that the elements were responding to her pain and that one day she would have the power to conjure a storm of her own. She had no idea why her mother was leaving her there. Not until years later would she know it was because of her gift; the gift of a True Elementris.

She knew she was different and she hid her strange abilities the best she could, but keeping the magic under control was hard. Ava tried; she knew her mother didn’t like it. It scared her and she would get so mad at Ava. That last morning her mother caught her in the kitchen; her cereal milk swirling above the bowl. She tried to stop it, she just didn’t know how. Ava was six when Aunt Avalene told her about her gift, ten years old the last time her mother came to visit, eleven when she swore she would never use it again. It is supposed to be a gift. A gift inherited through the Vangeretta family. The ancient magic is in her blood and she is the youngest witch, wizard, or what have you, in her family, but all she wants is to be normal.
