Wood is wise. Water is intuitive. Metal is rebellious. Earth is nurturing. Fire is passionate.
After the sun dies, civilization establishes itself on Xon 9, a planet with rogue Elements that affect human physiology. The inhabitants of Xon 9 soon learn to harness the powers of the Elements. At eighteen each citizen must Pronounce their Elemental, a life long affiliation.
Ka Waylon cannot decide which Elemental to Pronounce. All her life she’s been ordinary and, unlike her friends Ahna and Li, she’s never felt called to any particular Element. Worse, the only advice she receives is to choose wisely.
That all changes when she meets a mysterious Metal woman. Soon Ka is on a perilous journey to other worlds in order to retrieve the Elemental Stones and claim her true identity. Along the way she makes some unlikely allies and learns that she’s anything but ordinary.

This book was amazing, I stayed up all night because I could not put it down!
I absolutely loved how Jennifer built this world, literally, its another world set after the destruction of Earth after getting supernova’d by our sun. This world is called Xon 9, in this world there is Ka, our main character is having a dilemma because she doesn’t know what element she should choose for her future.
There are five elements; wood, earth, metal, fire, and water him and which ever element you are chosen for or picked for, there are good sides and bad sides to each element and they each have an affinity for jobs in the community.
Ka was a very well developed main character, she’s very relatable, and extremely strong. There is some romance but doesn’t take away from the action packed story at all. I found myself constantly saying, one more chapter until I finished the whole book. (No regret whatsoever) I cannot wait for the second book, its moved to the top of my TBR and this one is on my favorites shelf already!
I don’t want to give away any spoilers but definitely try and get your hands on this book! You won’t regret it!
