Where to get:
With power comes enemies. Lots of them.
Hunter Garrity just wants to be left alone. He’s learned the hard way that his unusual abilities come at a price. And he can’t seem to afford any allies.
He’s up to his neck in hostiles. His grandfather, spoiling for a fight. The Merrick brothers, who think he ratted them out. Calla, the scheming psycho who wants to use him as bait.
Then there’s Kate Sullivan, the new girl at school. She’s not hostile. She’s bold. Funny. Hot. But she’s got an agenda, too.
With supposedly secret powers rippling to the surface everywhere around him, Hunter knows something ugly is about to go down. But finding out what means he’ll have to find someone he can trust…
So much emotion in this book!! I will admit I teared up. I was a little unsure if I would like this book as much as the others in this series. While I did like Hunter in previous books he is definitely not my favorite. I love those Merrick brothers. Hunter is an Elemental like the Merricks and is new in town. He is a bit unsure of where he fits in with everyone. This book is his journey of finding out where he fits in and who he is.
Throughout the entire book I found myself saying poor Hunter. I was starting to wonder if this kid would ever catch a break. Brigid Kemmerer is not afraid to tug at your heart strings and make you shed a tear. He has lost his Dad and Uncle and feels pretty much let down by everyone around him. I love how the characters in these books grow and find out who they really want to be and what they want out of life. They deal with real world problems and learn how to face them head on.
While I still love the Merrick brothers Hunter now holds a special place in my heart as well. This book has everything you could want action, tears, romance and surprises. What's not to like? I would definitely recommend this book to those who have read the others in the series. If you have not read the others in the series what are you waiting for? You should pick them up today and dive into the elemental world. You will not regret it.
About the author:Brigid Kemmerer started writing in high school, and her first real “novel” was about four vampire brothers causing a ruckus in the suburbs. Those four brothers are the same boys living in the pages of The Elemental Series, so Brigid likes to say she’s had four teenage boys taking up space in her head for the last seventeen years!
