Born of Aether: An Elemental Origins Novel (Paperback)
They say if you tell a lie long enough you'll start to believe it. But Akiko will never forget who she truly is.
Akiko Susumu is not what she seems. Her life as a normal teen living in a coastal Canadian town is a complete sham. The old man she lives with is not her grandfather, he's her captor. And Akiko isn't a teen. In fact, she isn't even human.
But Akiko isn't allowed to share the reality of her true nature with a single soul. Not even her three best friends know of the power she could wield, given the chance.
So, when she's sent back to her homeland to steal an ancient samurai sword, she jumps at the chance to secure her freedom, only to get caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse with the most dangerous crime syndicate in Japan.
Can Akiko escape with her life and her soul, or is true freedom as elusive as the Aether she was born from?
