Book one of a new Five Elements series. Meet Gabe and his three friends. All his life Gabe has had to constantly move from one place to another which his Uncle claims is to keep him safe. Gabe does not want to leave his new best friends so they dig around in the Uncles office until they come across some a map that marks a hidden rook with a description of a binding ceremony that is supposed to keep them together forever. What they do not know is that this is magic that they should not be missing with, and things pretty quickly go down hill after that. The world building is incredible, and I found myself hooked until I got to the end which is a cliffhanger of course. I am looking forward to the next installment in the series, and this one gets 4/5 stars.
