Summary from Goodreads: 
The only thing that mattered to Sollara was escaping the Deep Kingdom and exploring the world she had only ever dared to dream about. When her dreams clash with her reality, she finds herself thrown into an unknown world filled with monsters and magic. Not knowing who her enemies or allies are, she turns to those she was raised to despise for help.

My Review: 
Descendants is a really good book. I loved the mythical, magic, world and characters of this story.

Sollara lives in the Deep Kingdom, a place deep under ground where people who have pretty much been kicked out of Atlanticus live. She finds out her "parents" are not her real parents but took her after her real parents were killed. The only person she is close to is her maid who turns out to be someone else. You'll be surprised to read who she really is.

On her eighteenth birthday Sollara convinces her "dad" to take her to the surface, a place she has never seen. She is only there a couple minutes when she sees this stunning guy, Kai. Her "dad" immediately takes her back to the Deep Kingdom after seeing her reaction. The story really takes off from here. Her maid overhears her "parents" talking and knows she only has one chance to get Sollara out of the Deep Kingdom and to the surface. Once Sollara and Kai get to the surface they meet up with some others who are to help them. I'm not going to say how Sollara and Kai are in the Deep Kingdom together, don't want to give away anything. They meet the other two Elementals and some dark ones. Dark ones are some type of vampire creature. Sollara starts to learn what powers she has and what her prophecy with Kai is. I loved all the different things she is able to do as a Elemental.

Without giving away any spoilers I'm going to stop right here with saying any more about the plot. I'll just say that this a really good book. It is well written, I loved the world and the characters really brought the book to life. The ending is something else. I was like wait, what? No, this can't be happening but it does. I so want to read the next book to see what is going on. I will be reading more from this author in the future.
