Synopsis via Goodreads

A lost colony is reborn in this heart-pounding fantasy adventure set in the near future . . .

Sixteen-year-old Thomas has always been an outsider. The first child born without the power of an Element—earth, water, wind or fire—he has little to offer his tiny, remote Outer Banks colony. Or so the Guardians would have him believe.

In the wake of an unforeseen storm, desperate pirates kidnap the Guardians, intent on claiming the island as their own. Caught between the plague-ridden mainland and the advancing pirates, Thomas and his friends fight for survival in the battered remains of a mysterious abandoned settlement. But the secrets they unearth will turn Thomas’ world upside-down, and bring to light not only a treacherous past but also a future more dangerous than he can possibly imagine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay so Five Flavors of Dumb and Thou Shalt Not Road Trip are both on my wishlist. So naturally I would add this one and it does sound really good! Should probably get to one of the others. lol. The cover is pretty rockin' too, though it kinda reminds a lot of the cover of Divergent. So what do you think?

The word pirates mixed with dangerous and a mysterious settlement = I'm in :)

This is the first time I've heard of Elemental but I'm pretty sure it won't be the last. It sounds like an exiting read.
