Fraction of Stone (Fraction #1) by Kelley Lynn

Wind tunnels, torrential rains and earthquakes tear apart Casden. The cause of the world’s imbalance is unknown, but the mounting occurrences suggest there’s little time before life ceases to exist.

Rydan Gale and Akara Nazreth are the only humans with the ability to wield magic. The tattoo on their necks and the discovery of an ancient book, dictate they are the key to the world’s survival.

But the greatest obstacle for saving mankind isn’t the bizarre creatures, extreme betrayals and magic-fearing men hunting them.

It’s that Akara doesn’t believe the world is worth saving.
Paperback, eBook, 293 pages  Expected publication: March 21st 2013 by Sapphire Star Publishing  ISBN  9781938404 
When Rydan finds Akara is being held in a cell. It doesn't take him long to realize that he is not going to leave without her. Even if it may start a war. They are the only known two people that can wield magic, there are not many left of the Namaqua people.  When Rydan takes her back home to talk to his teacher they find some of the answers to what happened to their people. And most importantly what they need to do to save the world. Gather the pieces of the broken stone. But Akara has had a rough life, and has no want or reason to try to save a world that has treated her so harshly. 
The story has a lot of traveling and adventure. Crazy weather and obstacles they must overcome.  Not to mention the evil Faris who is unhappy with the fact that Rydan took off with Akara in the first place.

They will find friendships and hardships along the way. Learn to wield their magic in different ways and find answers to the questions that have always been burning inside.

The story was not as fast paced as I thought it would be considering they are on the run. Times of travel and more dialogue than action scenes. It's writing is very descriptive and the world building is interesting. I was happy to see a lot of character growth in Akara. And as this is just the first book in the series, there seems like there is a lot more of this story to go, we've just been given a sneak peek of what is possible next.
