Most teenage girls know their name, where they came from, who they are. Not G, a beautiful redhead with unusual markings on her wrist. She gets her name from a silver locket she keeps around her neck, unaware the engraved letter “G” on its front holds the secret to her past.
G’s life before the age of six has been a mystery to her. Each night for the last twelve years she’s been haunted by the same nightmare—a war. Horrendous beasts, warriors able to wield the four elements, and a boy who saves her by means of blue fire taunt her memory. But on her eighteenth birthday, G’s life begins to unravel. When she meets her new Chemistry professor, a man with an uncanny resemblance to the boy who saves her, she knows there must be more to her dreams.
It’s dangerous not knowing who you are, what you’re capable of, and what future awaits you. Especially when the darkness that slaughtered your entire world, just found you.
Elemental magic, alternate dimensions and unknown royalty is what wait in Season’s Within. We are introduced to the main character simply as G, she is an orphan and goes to high school but knows nothing of her past until a mysterious teacher turns up and throws the world into chaos. The magic system in this book was easy to understand and predominately focused around the elements. The main characters are from an alternate universe in sync with Earth known as Terra. In Terra individuals have control over one element. However, as the princess G will have power over all of them. Approximately 25% into the book everything gets explained and the plot speeds up from there. The plot itself was very clearly set out and the motivations for the protagonists and antagonists were evident. I really enjoyed this book and the diverse range of characters. I want to quickly mention the cover, which I find to be absolutely stunning. This is the first book in a new Young Adult fantasy series with all the makings for an excellent overall series.
