From the Author

Born of Aether is the fourth novel in the Elemental Origins Series. Find out why readers are falling in love with these elemental girls!

Aether is considered an element in some ancient cultures, including Japan, but I take artistic license with its nature. Given that it is unique (not a tangible material like fire, water, earth or air), the potential to create a story about spirit and a being who has the power to protect it was far too tempting to pass up. In this story, you'll experience a weaving together of Japanese mythology, samurai culture, and my own ideas on what it might be like to be an Akuna Hanta - a demon hunter, who is just coming in to her powers. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed creating it! Don't miss Born of Water, Born of Fire, Born of Earth, and Born of Air. My next project is the final book in the Elemental Origins Series and, as its an ensemble story which brings the girls all back together for an epic adventure, it's gonna be epic! *Cracks knuckles. Begins typing*
