The Legend of Korra

Avatar: The Gems of Life is fan-sequel made by PrincessAire that focuses on the next Avatar after Korra. A century after the events of The Legend of Korra, some characters from the previous show are either dead or too old to contribute greatly in the story.

Avatar Korra had done exceptionally well in doing her duties as the Avatar. She helped the United Republic grow further, opened the Spirit Portals and helped the humans live with spirits in harmony, brought back the airbenders and helped in recreating the Earth Kingdom.

However, like most Avatars, Korra made some mistakes in her life, mistakes that may one day be a burden for her reincarnation.

Shin, adventurous and daredevil as he is, still hasn't completely felt the responsibility of being an Avatar. Nothing has been bothering the world for the past 18 years, but things are about to change. Shin will meet friends and defeat enemies that are a threat to world peace, and in order to grow as a fully-realized Avatar, Shin must understand his true power, his true potential. Being indecisive has proven to be a great obstacle to all past Avatars, and if Shin does not become decisive to take drastic measures, the world might just fall into chaos slowly, without anyone saving it, and one day, the term Avatar may cease to exist.


Book 1: Guardians (守护者)

Legends say that the Avatar always has his friends beside him, helping him in his duties as the Avatar. These friends have the Elemental Gems, gems that came from Raava herself. Like the Avatar, once the Guardian dies, the Guardian is reincarnated into a new Guardian, who is destined to help the Avatar in his duty to bring the world into peace and balance.

If the Elemental Gems were to fall into the wrong hands, the Avatar will be in grave danger. Once the Elemental Gems are held by a single being, it allows the holder to bend all 4 elements, like the Avatar. It could be used to oppose the Avatar itself, or it could be used for something much more worse.

In the present day, a century after Avatar Korra's reign as Avatar, she is reincarnated into the Earth Kingdom boy named Shin. Shin is destined to meet the Guardians and become his greatest allies. Albeit unknown to the Guardians themselves, Yōna, Yuzuki Aishi and Wēn all hold three of the Elemental Crystals, Fire, Water and Air, respectively, and they quickly become friends with the Avatar.

Together, they must stop the Red Lotus and its leader, Hiresh from once again throwing the world out of balance.

Book 2: Energy (能源)

A month after the events with the Red Lotus, the sudden spread of spiritual energy in the world has led to the discovery of an ancient nation that has long been since forgotten. Shin now faces three of the nations fighting each other in order to access all of the ancient nation's hidden wealth; something that should belong to the nation's people, not to the world.

A secret society that has been hiding under the shadows of the four nations rises, attempting to claim back their nation. Without any proof however, the society is left with suspicion as they take drastic actions to take back what is theirs.

Will war once again prevail over the world or will the Avatar be able to keep peace and balance?

Book 3: Connection (连接)

Ever since Avatar Korra had lost her connection to her past lives, this affected her successor, Shin, in many different ways. Shin has had to do things on his own accord, seeking advice from Jinora and close friends. However, with a new threat rising, threatening to eliminate world leaders and appoint themselves as new ones, Shin needs real advice from his past lives, like Korra or Aang.

Assaulting this group is like no other; attacking this secret organization without a plan can lead to Shin's demise, or worse.

Darkness falls, yet light always prevails. Peace always overcomes chaos, no matter how difficult it is, and disconnected relationships can be mended. Will Shin be able to reconnect with his past lives or will he have to defeat the secret organization on his own?

Book 4: Gods (神)

Raava is the Light Goddess and Vaatu is the Dark God. The spirits worship Raava and Vaatu, yet they also worship four more minor gods and goddesses, each of them representing one element. The Elemental Gods helped Raava in creating the Elemental Gems, which would be held by their current incarnations, Yōna, Yuzuki and Wēn.

When the Spirit Portals were closed and with Raava permanently fusing with Wan, this left the Spirit World with the four minor gods, all of whom felt betrayed because their highest goddess, Raava, had left them for the sake of helping humans by creating the Avatar.

When Avatar Korra opened the Spirit Portals once more, this allowed the Elemental Gods to enter the human world and look for the Avatar and consequently, their high goddess Raava. Seeing as how the physical world has changed, the Elemental Gods decided to claim back the Physical World for spirits and attempts to restore the world back to the prehistoric times, the time where the Lion Turtles were abundant and when the Spirit Wilds existed.

Shin must now face another big threat, but he would not face it alone, as Raava will be with him for the rest of the fight. Will Shin be able to save the world from the Elemental Gods who are trying to return the world to its prehistoric times or will the Spirit Wilds return to the Physical World once more?
