Dark Peak: The first book in the Elementals science fantasy series.
A land of long fields and rough mountains; a battleground where two of the Earth's protectors meet the worst of humanity's excesses made flesh. Jake Walker learns the hard way what it means to be the companion of an elemental, a guardian of the Earth, billions of years old. But all he wants to do is keep his head down and get on with his life. He isn't cut out for fighting and teaching people how to treat the world better. But if he doesn't learn quickly, the world will end and his sister, his mother and everyone alive will be crushed under earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes because of the beast, an entity that travels from one world to another feeding on greed, apathy and selfishness until all that's left is wasteland. Only the elemental can stop it. And only with Jake's reluctant help. But Jake has no idea what he's supposed to do, and nothing is guaranteed...
