Posted on October 19, 2012 by Bobby Bernshausen | 0 Comments

Ancient Chinese history collides with the supernatural in the Troy Jackson’s new book, The Elementals.

Upon unifying seven warring states under one banner, the First Emperor of China begins solidifying his power for a visionary thousand-year reign. He starts a series of arduous projects including the Great Wall and the Linqu Canal, cold-heartedly choosing to ignore the physical and emotional toll they have on his people.

The Dragon’s Spite is the only thing standing between the Emperor and his millennial reign. The secretive insurgent group wishes to usurp control of the throne by any means, but must first gather their forces strewn throughout the kingdom. Their biggest challenge by far is to seek out three extraordinary girls who hold vast supernatural powers that can tip the balance in their favor, but they must find them before the Emperor does.
