Gateways, Book I of The Elemental Chronicles
One cruel night, Victoria’s mother painted a final gateway, a painting that leads to other realities. For years the painting hung unobtrusively on the wall, until Victoria falls into it. Slipping right past the oil, through the canvas and into the world her mother painted, Victoria discovers a beautiful land inhabited by sphinx and minotaur. The people there are incredibly gifted, able to communicate with the natural elements. Turns out that Water is moody, Air demands attention, and Fire is hungry all the time. And Earth? That's where the true power lies.
All the beauty is tainted when Victoria meets Ona, a vengeful leader who discovers that Victoria holds the key to finding the Grandfather’s Weapon, the ultimate device that grants absolute power to the one who can wield it. Victoria must learn the skills of the mage, discover why her mother was guarding the gateway, and protect the Grandfather’s Weapon, or all the worlds in existence will suffer the same fate as Noah’s ancestors.
