Four mythical Elementals - Water, Land, Air, and Fire - have the power to save two worlds, Earth and Farworld, from a common enemy: the Dark Circle. In book one, Water Keep, a portal has been opened between the two worlds, allowing Marcus, from Earth, and Kyja, from Farworld, to combine their unique gifts and begin their epic quest to find the Elementals.
In book two, Land Keep, Marcus and Kyja travel with Cascade, a Water Elemental, toward Land Keep, the home of the powerful and wise Land Elementals. However, their journey may end before it even begins. Land Keep is empty, deserted for at least a thousand years, and the rumor is that the creatures who once controlled all land magic are extinct. Marcus and Kyja's only hope seems to lie in finding the Augur Well, a legendary Oracle protected by subtle traps and mind-bending trials. To succeed in their quest, Marcus and Kyja must also avoid the Keepers of the Balance, an order dedicated to redistributing magic to the rich and powerful. And they must travel far underground, where Cascade is unable to follow and where they will be unable to leap to the safety of Earth.
As the Dark Circle closes around them, Marcus and Kyja are faced with the temptation of what they desire most. Sacrifices must be made, and not everyone will survive unscathed.

"Consider me officially hooked on the Farworld series." (James Dashner, New York Times best-selling author of the Maze Runner series)
It might just be me but u feel like there's things that are not talked about. Like the author forgot to tie some moments together. And when the author ties in major events they just feel so absurdly improbable.
The whole quest seems pointless after the ending of the book. It's slow and the events are not interesting at all. 3 parts of the book could have been skipped because feel pointless.
Magic is so unbalance. It seems like convince determines whose the most powerful during an event.
WTF is up with the ending. That powerful object came and went. Seriously WTF.
I'm only finishing the trilogy because I bought all 3 books at once.
