Clever, mysterious, and breathtakingly beautiful is everyone's ideal image of a hero. Elaina, Jake, Nick, and Valerie had signed themselves up to be just that...not that they had much of a choice. With this newest generation of elemental masters around, there.s never a dull day at Heridan castle. Lately, battling a swarm of enemies before morning brunch has become somewhat a routine for these four. Still, the tough life of a hero has its perks including wealth, undying love among the people, and above all else being respected as a top warrior. Of course, when dealing with relationships, Elaina and the others would take a duel to the death any day of the week. But, like all steady things in life, every once in awhile they need a good jostle. Now, struggling to uphold the honor of the castle has become the least of these startlingly young, heroes' problems. Elaina, Jake, Valerie, and Nick are propelled into the first adventure of many as they balance spiteful leaders, rifts in friendship, new allies, forbidden love, and ancient power in the race for victory... Can this new generation of elemental masters maintain the all-powerful heroic figure, or will the mysteries of their pasts doom them forever?
