A young man with an extraordinary destiny becomes the center of Sergei Lysov’s stunning debut novel, “Element.” Through the experiences of his richly drawn characters, this up and coming author casts light on real-world issues such as war, the quest for peace, the duality of human nature and religious factions.

An unknowing senior in high school, is just trying to make it in his own little world when a mission is given — right the wrongs of the misconceptions which caused and continue to cause so much suffering and destruction over an aspect of life that should bring humanity peace.

Cyrus, the next prophet, is blessed with the power to manifest and manipulate the four elements which are vital to life: earth, wind, water, and fire. Getting the attention of the world is not a simple task, and soon the young man learns his mission can affect everything from political empires to warlords to the people who matter the most to him.

Announcing the arrival of a gifted new literary voice, “Element” is all at once a modern day parable packed with action and political intrigue, an original retelling of the classic battle between good and evil and a brilliantly wrought metaphysical adventure.
