Every generation four sisters with power over earth, air, fire, and water are born to fight against a fanatical, secret faith. The Order exists only to sacrifice the sisters for their power. With each success their strength and control grows. They have never failed, for their rule depends on it.

With a crack and
rumble, the ground surrounding the cabin broke apart and water burst from the
earth. It sprayed as strong as any fire hose up and over the cabin. The
pounding force was like a waterfall in reverse, and the flames sputtered and
She had never
seen anything like it, an enormous water fountain extinguishing fire burning
that hot. The cabin door, charred and still smoking, flew off its hinges and
onto the flooded grass.
Three figures
ran out into the early morning glare. Asha took off her helmet and slouchy
hood, but her eyes weren’t playing tricks. She could see them clearly, even
across the distance, and her stomach dropped. They stopped short, facing an
army with guns raised. No.
“Stop!” Her
scream was too late; the soldiers fired. She didn’t have time to act; they were
sitting ducks. She prepared for their thrashing bodies, but like a swarm of
hovering locusts, the bullets stopped in mid-air and dropped.
What? She
couldn’t get her mind around the scene unfolding before her. She’d lost control
of her body. Her muscles wouldn’t move.
“Hold your
fire,” Clay shouted, but the soldiers continued shooting.
His brothers
were the only ones not attacking. They had to be as shocked by the falling
bullets as she was. She couldn’t blame them. She was as still and as useless as
a rock, unable to move or act, only watch in growing disbelief. Three young
women stood against an army.
“Asha,” yelled
one of the girls, her eyes were even brighter green than Clay’s. “We’re your
sisters. We’ve been looking for you.”

  1. I enjoy books that start with the basic 4 (Earth, Air, Water, and Fire) and then see where things go from there with the magic system and world building.
