Children of the Elements: Prey to Him
In the blink of an eye, the shards of glass previously lying at Nathan's feet were surrounding him, inches from his skin. His heart beat jumped at the suddenness, but he refused to move. As he looked back at Will, he no longer found the aggressive teen super-soldier, but an angry, terrified child staring back at him. "No," Will snapped, only just managing to hide the wavering fear in his voice. "If I have to live like this, then so do you."
Nathan maintained his calmness, even as the glass edged its way closer to his skin. "Let us get the antidote and all of us can be free."
It's been a month since the unlucky four's lives were changed forever. They thought their new plan of retrieving their siblings would be an easy one, until Nathan begins to distance himself, leaving for days and returning battered and bruised, and Ash becomes lost in her own head.
An attack, several deaths and a mysterious stranger later, and the four of them are back on the road, following only the word of a boy in a desperate attempt to find some kind of way to save their brothers and sisters. But as the secrets they find on their journey begin to cause tension in the group, it may prove much more difficult to band together than they first expected. All is not what it seems in the second instalment of the Children of the Elements series as Nathan, Ash, Chris and Eva embark on their latest adventure to the hidden Rockfall Bay.

Hey guys! So this is the second book in my trilogy and therefore a sequel to the first book, Children of the Elements: Our Beginning. I guess you don't have to have read the first book to understand the storyline, but it kind of helps to know who the characters are and the relationships between them.
