Far World: Water Keep by J. Scott Savage

I know I've reviewed this before, but I love this book so much, I want to review it again.  Water Keep by J. Scott Savage is a great book.  It follows Marcus, a boy who needs a wheelchair to get around, and Kyja, a girl who can't perform magic, as they go on an adventure to gain the help of all four Elementals (Water, Earth, Air, and Fire) n an attempt to create a 'drift' between Earth and Far World using good magic.  They need the cooperation of all four to do it, and the problem is that Marcus and Kyja can't truly go home unless they do.  (Marcus was born on FarWorld, but he grew up on Earth, and Kyja was born on Earth and grew up in Far World.)  This first book focuses on their efforts to gain the help and cooperation of the Water Elementals.  How they go about doing that, is exciting and fast paced.  I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy adventure.
