Selvyn is a twenty-two-year-old Zicarnum with the ability to control two elemental affinities: wind and water. All his life, he has been told he is not as strong as his peers. Growing up in a society where you have to learn how to fight in order to survive, Selvyn instead has spent his entire life avoiding conflict.
When Selvyn and his friends are ambushed by a group of strangers, his abilities are tested for the first time — and he realizes he’s going to have to fight. He stumbles upon a pair of peculiar blades which help him discover confidence within himself, and enable him to tap into the offensive power of his elements.
But this is just the beginning for him. While Selvyn learns who he truly is, he begins to unlock astonishing abilities. Meanwhile, nefarious forces are readying themselves to attack, set on destroying him and his home city — will Selvyn’s newfound powers be enough to stop them?

A sweeping tale of adventure and danger, innovation and corruption, and two women whose lives intertwine in unexpected ways on America’s first transcontinental train trip.
May 1870. Crowds throng the Boston station, mesmerized by the mechanical wonder huffing on the rails: the Pullman Hotel Express, the first train to travel from coast to coast. Boarding the train are congressmen, railroad presidents, and even George Pullman himself. For two young women, strangers until this fateful day, it’s the beginning of a journey that will change their lives.
Sensitive Louisa dreads the trip, but with limited prospects, she’s reluctantly joined the excursion as a governess to a wealthy family. Hattie is traveling to San Francisco to meet her fiancé, yet she’s far more interested in the workings of the locomotive than she is in the man awaiting her arrival. As the celebrated train moves westward, the women move toward one another, pulled by an unexpected attraction.
But there is danger in this closeness, just as there is in the wilds of the frontier and in the lengths the railroad men will go to protect their investments. Before their journey is over, Louisa and Hattie will find themselves very far from where they intended to go.
