Amazonian Primess | 2 comments I can't remember for the life of me a title to a book I read ages ago and really want to reread. I can't recall the plotline at all really, but the main character dies at the start of the book and then is resurrected to find he has magical abilities. He can hold an object and look into it's 'history' (i.e. the places it's been and when it was there). He can also travel to specific places and times along that history.


The other characters have abilities themed around the elements (i.e. controlling fire) and one can heal if I recall correctly?

Sorry for the vagueness I read it around 8 years ago so can't remember it for the life of me.

Thanks for any help!

What age range is it aimed at? Does the book explain how he is resurrected? Miracle, it's part of what makes him "special" (i.e. to have the extra powers you have to die and come back from the dead), they got him to the hospital in time and the doctors were able to restart his heart, etc. Was it a standalone or part of a series?

It was a part of a series I'm pretty sure, and I think that when he 'died' he was "teleported" away to some effect? I have no clue on the age range but I'd imagine teen/young adult.

Amazonian, is this book for young adults (teens) or older adults? About how old is the hero?

How does he die at the start of the book?

How does he time travel? What's his goal/purpose?
