The Elements Game

By Stephanie Louise Foote All Rights Reserved ©

Drama / Fantasy


Thousands of years ago, there lived a race of Godlike beings called Elementa naturae. They created the earth and lived on it with the Humans that soon inhabited the land. Everything was once as peaceful as could be ...   However, all 12 of these elemental-bound Clans were accepted as good except the Fire Clan. Angered and insulted, they got revenge and destroyed the lives of thousands of Elementa naturae and reformed their own into an army of high social power--Cruentus Infernos. Their goal: to rule the world.   It is now present day. Three stray Elementa naturae managed to escape the attack and flee to America: Myra Walters of the Water Clan, Troy Polk of the Wind Clan, and Dalton Morey of the Earth Clan. Banded together, they must survive not only the stress of Cruentus Infernos tracking their every move, but also the stress of life. Can these three survive it all? Or will their trust and willpower get to them first?


IN THE BEGINNING, there was only chaos. Soon, the God Erebus arrived, and no later, Night. As time went on, Love had begun to bloom, and soon after, Light and Day were among the Spectrum. And soon after, Gaia was formed.

Gaia bore a son, whom she called Uranus. Uranus, who had no father and only a mother, created and lived in a cloud castle and watched over Gaia, who continued forming the vast Earth that is known today. Uranus would help by making rain fall, and where it fell, Gaia would grow a harvest and fill up craters which are known today as the oceans. Very soon, the living embodiments of winged birds and scaled fish came about, feeding off the land that Uranus and his mother Gaia grew.

Before long, Uranus took a liking to his mother and became her mate since she had no husband. Within the years, they had created all of 24 new beings, twelve of which were the Titans, a broad race of divine power and reign. The youngest of the Titans, Cronus, attacked Uranus out of jealousy and became the new ruler of the Earth.

He marveled at how beautiful the Earth was his mother had created and shared it with his wife Rhea. They bore many kids and shared it with them as well, and their kids continued to live on with their own children. Cronus’s fate took a nasty turn as his son Zeus was believed to have murdered his father.

Rhea lived on with her children, vowing to never let a fate like Cronus’s befall any of her children or children to come. She watched over them and later generations, ready to help in a situation when needed. With her watch, she gave a promise to each of her children: “Make it so, through each generation you might pass on, that you live out what your Godly mother Gaia intended for the land to bear,” she’d say. “Make it be that the Gods’ Disciples live out on Mother Earth’s creation for all of mankind to come. Speak of it with great honor and pride that which you have witnessed, and treat it with the greatest of care. And never let a fate like Cronus’s befall you.”

And thus, the Clans of 12 were born. Those titled Titans eloped with those not born with great powers and fine-tuned Gaia’s gifts to the Earth: water, rock, thunder, lightning, wood, fire, metal, magic, wind, darkness, poison, and sound. Harnessing the gifts of Gaia, they protected the land and cultivated it with new life, passing their techniques down to their children and their grandchildren. The Titans grew for many years into a powerful race, and the families soon migrated to a small island off Greece called Kaal, where they built homes and thrived there for thousands of years.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish. The only flaw I could find is that I wish I could have read more. This book is certainly...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...
