When you love someone more than yourself, protecting them is all that matters; it is all there is...

Snow one minute and blazing temperatures the next, horrific storms everywhere, and Ava has no idea what’s causing it. Desperate for answers, she turns to the past. An ancient diary reveals the truth about Element Island and the true origins of those born of the Element. Everything she thought she knew is wrong. Destiny is coming for her unborn child.

Ava’s fairytale has quickly turned into a nightmare. No one can be trusted. Friendships will be tested, and lives will be lost. As nature and destiny collide, a child that will change everything is born. The eruption will mark the beginning and the end, and the battle has just begun.

“The twenty-second day of the twelfth month…

This castle holds many secrets. Even secret rooms. Hanna and I have been exploring them. A dream led me to look under the staircase leading to Hanna’s room. We found old scrolls there. They tell of a different time. A time long before this one. They tell of five rulers. All True Elementris’. The story says that five sat on five thrones all equal in power. They traded spells for gold and together balanced nature. The scrolls say it changed from five True Elementris' to one True Elementris. It talks about gods of lightning and water too. It talks about a place called Olympus and a place called Atlantis. It says that the one gifted with earth changed all of that. She took their power. She killed them. She killed the other four in her circle for power.”
A loud knock on the door took her attention away from the diary. She tucked it into the vanity drawer and opened the door.


Between Ava and Brea there was no way I was putting this amazing book down!  From start to finish there were questions, concerns and twists that kept me turning the pages.  Ava has always had her work cut out for her from the very beginning when she fought to become the next True Elementris.

Fighting the urge to give up, given the people around her and the storms brewing all around the world.  Ava has to figure out why she has lost her ability to control the elements.  Is it because she's with child?  Or is there someone else causing the destruction and mayhem?

Brea's back and not without a fight.  Shawn has stolen something from her and it's up to her to move on.  Get past the Bianca and Shawn portrait that she sees behind closed eyelids.  When a charming young man tries to break down the exterior wall Brea has built after losing Shawn, her mind is open to everything he says, yet her heart's not in it.  Not sure who to trust anymore, going to Ava would only put more on her bestie and she has enough to deal with...will Brea's decision cost her or will the truth reveal itself?

Christina Mobley is a married, mother of four, who spends her days caring for her children. She grew up in Florida, living on the banks of the St.Mary's river, and as a child always had a fascination for storms and the power they wield. The Vangeretta Curse series was inspired by that fascination.
