The second installment in the Elemental series, a new futuristic fantasy for young adults and new adults, ELEMENTAL HUNGER is a full-length novel.

Sixteen-year-old Gabriella Kilpatrick can shoot fire from her hands, which would be great if she didn’t get blamed for a blazing inferno that kills 17 schoolmates. When Gabby is commanded to Manifest her Element, everyone knows what she is: a genetic abnormality. Not to mention guilty.

So she does two logical things to survive.
1. She runs.
2. She hacks off her hair to assume a new role—that of “Gabe”, because in her world, only boys are Firemakers.

Not only does she have to act like a guy, she has to pretend to know everything a Firemaker should know. When Gabby meets Airmaster Adam Gillman, he believes her act and pledges to serve on “Gabe’s” Council. But Adam has the mark of a sentry and spent years obeying Alex, the Supreme Elemental. And Alex wants Gabby-the-genetic-freak dead and gone before she can gather the magical protection of a full Council.

With Adam’s lies that sound like truths and rumors that Alex isn’t really a Firemaker—or a man—Gabby sets out to charter a Council of her own. In order to uncover the truth, Gabby will have to learn who she can trust, how to control her own power, and most of all, how to lead a Council of Elementals, most of whom have more control over their power than she does. If she can’t, she’ll find herself just like those 17 schoolmates: burned and six feet under.

Look for the third and final installment, ELEMENTAL RELEASE, an Elemental novella, coming on July 2, 2014.

    This book is about Gabby who lives in a world where certain people have the power to control the elements; earth, fire, air, and water. Gabby finds out the she has the power of a Firemaker, but there is just one problem she has it. So one day Gabby’s decide to cut all of her hair and pretend that she is a boy. But before she is able to start her councilman training there’s is a fire that is started at the school. You guess right Gabby is being blamed for it. Gabby, does the only thing to do is to run from the authorities. While she’s is on the run from the authorities, she meets up with the rest of her council (air, earth, water, and manifested). Gabby begins to develop more and more powers and with that she realizes that she has a great responsibility both to her country and her council. There are powers that are at play trying to manipulate Gabby. While on this journey she has become a much stronger woman to let someone take advance for her.

    While she on the run she meets a young man named Adam who can control the air. Gabby decides to teams up with him, even though there is a past alerting her to danger. The question I would have for her can she trusts him?

    This book was very engaging from the very begin of the story. There was plenty of action that will keep you turning the pages. This was an enjoyable read for me.

    Well, dang.  This book had me all mixed up in the feelings department.  There were things about it that I totally loved and other things that I was more meh about.  In all, it was a book I was satisfied with but not completely in love with.   

    For me, this book started off really slow.  And I don't mean that like, the action took a long time because it didn't.  Right from the start, things are happening which I normally really like.  However, the writing style felt a little underdeveloped for me.  There were some reoccurring descriptions and sentences which bothered me and it felt kind of forced.  Because of this, I didn't immediately connect with the characters or the world.  

    However, once we got through the beginning, things started picking up.  It was a lot more exciting and flowed more naturally the more I read.  I began to really like Gabby.  She was in interesting character and I admired her strength and will.  I liked Adam a lot in this book, too.  He was a nice balance for Gabby and it was fun seeing the way their relationship was turning out.  There was a lot of tension between them and I just loved seeing that tension tested as they went forward.  

    The plot, like I said, was full of action from the start and became even more interesting once I really began to connect with Gabby.  There was a lot of thrilling action and I liked seeing how it played with the elemental aspect of the novel.  It really made everything a lot more exciting and heart-racing but there was still times when I put it down and didn't feel the need to pick it back up for a long time.  

    I'm excited to see what Elana releases in the future.  This wasn't my favorite book but I had a good time while reading it.  I hope in her next novels, the writing is a little tighter and we are able to connect more quickly with the characters!
