The Effigies Series

Fate of FlamesFate of Flames (Effigies #1)

Simon Pulse, a YA imprint of Simon & Schuster.

Four girls with the power to control the elements and save the world from a terrible evil must come together in the first epic novel in a brand-new series.

When Phantoms—massive beasts made from nightmares and darkness—suddenly appeared and began terrorizing the world, four girls, the Effigies, each gained a unique power to control one of the classical elements: earth, air, fire, and water. Since then, four girls across the world have continually fought against the Phantoms, fulfilling their cosmic duty. And when one Effigy dies, another girl gains her power as a replacement.

But now, with technologies in place to protect the world’s major cities from Phantom attacks, the Effigies have stopped defending humanity and, instead, have become international celebrities, with their heroic feats ranked, televised, and talked about in online fandoms.

Until the day that New York City’s protection against the Phantoms fails, a man seems to be able to control them by sheer force of will, and Maia, a high school student, unexpectedly becomes the Fire Effigy.

Now Maia has been thrown into battle with three girls who want nothing to do with one another. But with the first human villain that the girls have ever faced, and an army of Phantoms preparing for attack, there isn’t much time for the Effigies to learn how to work together.

Can the girls take control of their destinies before the world is destroyed forever?

There’s nowhere to hide.

Not when you’re an Effigy. No matter where they go, Maia and the other Effigies can’t escape the eyes of the press—especially not after failing to capture Saul, whose power to control the monstrous Phantoms has left the world in a state of panic. It’s been two months since Saul’s disappearance, and there’s still no sign of him, leaving the public to wonder whether the Sect—and the Effigies—are capable of protecting anyone.

When Saul suddenly surfaces in the middle of the Sahara desert, the Sect sends Maia and her friends out after him. But instead of Saul, they discover a dying soldier engineered with Effigy-like abilities. Even worse, there may be more soldiers like him out there, and it looks like the Effigies are their prime targets.

Yet the looming danger of Saul and this mysterious new army doesn’t overshadow Maia’s fear of the Sect, who ordered the death of the previous Fire Effigy, Natalya. With enemies on all sides and the world turning against them, the Effigies have to put their trust in each other—easier said than done when secrets threaten to tear them apart.

« Je m’appelle Maia Finley, j’ai seize ans et je suis la nouvelle Effigie. » Depuis quelques jours, Maia se répète ces mots en boucle, sans oser les prononcer à voix haute. Car à la minute où le monde l’apprendra, sa vie basculera. Elle deviendra une véritable célébrité, ses fans boiront la moindre de ses paroles… et son espérance de vie chutera drastiquement.

C’est que les Effigies, ces jeunes femmes dotées chacune d’un pouvoir unique lié aux quatre éléments, ne sont pas là par hasard : elles doivent protéger l’humanité des Spectres – des créatures de cauchemar – mélange de chair pourrissante et de ténèbres, qui la terrorisent depuis maintenant près d’une centaine d’années. À la mort de chaque Effigie, ses capacités, ainsi que la somme de ses souvenirs, se transmettent à son héritière choisie au hasard quelque part sur la planète.

Alors, quand Manhattan subit une attaque sans précédent, Maia n’a d’autre choix que de descendre dans l’arène. Elle qui idolâtre les Effigies, comme autrefois sa sœur jumelle morte dans un incendie, va cependant tomber de haut : les trois jeunes filles ne veulent plus entendre parler les unes des autres. Pourtant le danger se rapproche, car un homme énigmatique, Saul, semble capable à la surprise générale de contrôler les Spectres. Maia se retrouve aspirée dans une spirale infernale, au moment même où le feu qui couve en elle menace de la consumer tout entière!
