Freya Robertson is the winner of the New Zealand Sir Julius Vogel Sci-Fi & Fantasy Award for Best Novel for Heartwood (The Elemental Wars Book 1).
The element of fire is on the rise…
The Incendi elementals that dwell beneath the mountains have found a way to tap into the Arbor’s roots, which stretch not only across the land but also through time, and King Pyra is determined to crush the ancient tree.
Twenty-two years after the attack of the Darkwater Lords, Procella and her three children are drawn back to Heartwood to investigate the rumor of strange fires springing up across the country.
Five hundred years later, a thirteen-year-old boy journeys to Heartwood to be sacrificed to the Arbor, but the volcanoes are rumbling, and the firebird is starting to wake…
Two thousand years in the future, when Heartwood has fallen into myth and men and women now live underground, and one woman’s unborn baby urges her to escape to the surface.
Across three separate timelines, the Nox Aves scholars must work together to join their ancient sunstones, to overcome the Incendi, and to make the element of earth victorious once more.
