The only thing that mattered to Sollara was escaping the Deep Kingdom and exploring the world she had only ever dared to dream about. When her dreams clash with her reality, she finds herself thrown into an unknown world of monsters and magic. Not knowing who her enemies or allies are, she turns to those she was raised to despise for help.
All she had was her soul and she was determined to keep it. 
The Descendants Saga is a fantasy, adventure, romance that ties the gods of Basque mythology to the magical Descendants of the lost city of Atlanticus.

My Review: 
When I started this book I wasn't sure what to expect because Rebecca Lynn is a debut YA author. I'm not normally a huge fan of YA novels but this book was great and I really enjoyed it from start to finish. Sollara is a elemental and has lived underground her whole life with a mother and father that hate her. She has never been outside until she turned 18. It turns out that who she thinks are her parents are not her parents after all. When she finally comes out into the real world she has a lot of learning to do.
Kai, our hero, is also a elemental and has lived a hard life. His mother left when he was a little boy which shortly after caused his father's death. He is the one who finally helps Sollara escape and protects her. 
One of the things I really liked about this book was that it had funny parts as Sollara learns about the outside world. It elicited all kinds of different emotions in me throughout the story. This book was a definite page turner and kept me up late at night. I really look forward to seeing what happens next in the series. It did end with a cliffhanger so be prepared to read the next book.
I would recommend this book to YA fans and adults alike. There is some violence but overall this is a book for all ages.
