The Book – Fourborn Wind and Fire

In a world where the four elements rule as gods, the Gaias of Wind, Fire, Water and Earth
determine the existence and fate of every man and woman. Threatening this seemingly perfect world this the Fourborn – a yet to be identified being born of all four races and the only one who has the power to set mankind free from it's elemental shackles. Divinely chosen in the pending chaos is a guardian from each race. With the words of an ancient prophesy as their only guide, they must find and protect the Fourborn at all costs or risk losing everything they hold dear.

Kofi, an inexperienced warrior finds himself in a war without end. Fleeing the devastation, bloodshed and terror, he leaves his beloved homeland behind as he sets out on a journey with the promise of finding a cause that is worth fighting for. Lela, a child of the Wind and the Fire is determined to escape the life she was born into. Faced with a war of her own, she must find an inner balance if she is to claim the life she so desires.

The worlds of Wind and Fire collide when Kofi and Lela find themselves caught up in an
adventure of enormous proportions. Setting out on a mission that spans three lands, they must defy not only their Gaias and the prophesy but themselves in order to find the Fourborn while the dangers of an all consuming darkness takes shape around them.
The Author – Megan Futcher

I was born in suburban South Africa to a family of dedicated bibliophiles. From the moment I was able to write a full sentence I was dabbling around with words, creating stories out of the fictional worlds and the characters that lived on in my imagination.My novels and novellas dive into an unknown world before recorded history and I love asking the 'what if' question while I create and write a fantasy spin on human evolution.

The decision I made to 'go indie' started with me opening a new project in Scrivener for Linux, from there my eyes have been opened to so many fantastic possibilities. I'm a massive supporter of letting the creative mind go wild and indie publishing is such a great way to express oneself freely. I've met so many amazing people on my journey so far and the knowledge I'm gaining along the way is invaluable and I can only see it expanding as the indie revolution across all industries explodes in the coming future.

Along with reading everything I can get my hands on, I'm an enthusiastic gamer (who is determined to get over FPS – first person sickness). I also love movie date nights, yoga and cooking for my family and friends. I currently live in Perth, Western Australia with my Trekkie husband, Andy.
