Have you ever seen or been really close to a wildfire? Sam was at a summer camp when a wildfire sparked. The camp counselors had everyone get away from the wildfire, and made them wait for the buses to arrive so they could evacuate. Sam then remembers something, his phone! He left it back at his cabin, so he sneaks back to get it, and by the time he comes out of the cabin, the wildfire has blocked his path.

They move with their mom to their deceased grandfather's house. At their grandfather's house, they find an amulet. Once Emily puts on the amulet, she can never take it off. Now there is an evil elf king that will do anything just to get the amulet. There are currently 8 books in the series. I can’t wait for the new book to come out!
