About “The Elementals”

Ellen, Mae, Kat, Quinn and Rose aren’t your average, everyday siblings. In fact, they are all that’s keeping mankind from total destruction.

No pressure.

But they have their powers for protection, each-other for support, and their good elven friend Romin for guidance, so that when Adams the evil sorcerer needs his butt kicked, they’re on the job!

And he needs his butt kicked a lot.

Join Ellen the sylph, Mae the dragon, Kat the mermaid, Quinn the dwarf, and Rose the elf, as they battle Adams’ monstrous newmen soldiers in an epic fantasy world full of lava lakes, floating mountains, undersea cities, deep caverns and magical forests, in “The Elementals” by Morgan Marshall!

Ellen, Mae, Kat, Quinn and Rose are five very normal, very bored siblings with nothing to do when Romin the elf first visits them with the insane news that they are needed to save the world. Of course as modern kids they’re skeptical, but since there’s nothing else to do — and hey, he is an elf — they agree to follow him to his own world. After all, anything is better than boredom.

But things soon go completely mental as the siblings find out that they have powers they never knew existed: faerie magic reaching far back into the hazy beginnings of human history when Adams the evil sorcerer first tried to wipe out mankind. In the face of this great threat, the humans and fae got together and created The Elementals — half human and half faerie warriors with the powers earth, air, fire and water — to defeat him. And defeat him they did, banishing the sorcerer to the darkness of The Great Empty for his crimes.

Now Adams is plotting a new demise for his fellow humans, and as the direct descendants of the original Elementals, it’s up to the siblings to save the day. Will they uncover the secret of the fifth Elemental before it’s too late, or will Adams turn their powers against them to destroy mankind forever?

  6. Are all the characters white?

    • Actually, no. The main characters in this series are half white, half Latino, as they are based on my own children who are mixed. 🙂 In “Guts and Glory”, there are also a mix of races in the characters. One of my favorites is a little black girl named Turtle, who is the smartest character in the whole story. I don’t have a picture of her yet, though, as my illustrator is still working on the latest illustrations, but when I do she and some other newer characters will be on the “Guts and Glory” page. 🙂
