"Original, funny, and romantic, this is the series that YA fans have been waiting for." —Nocturne Reads

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. . .

Praise for Brigid Kemmerer and The Elemental Series

"Magic, suspense, and enough twists to keep you reading until sunrise. An incredible start to the series!" —Award winning author Erica O'Rourke

"A refreshingly human paranormal romance. . . Read fast and keep that heart rate up." —Kirkus Reviews on Storm

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

The third in the Elemental series largely turns from the charismatic Merricks to the problems of Hunter, a spirit elemental who was introduced in the first title, Storm (2012). Hunter is now being booted from his home by an angry grandfather who seems to be protecting his passive mother, lost in grief at the death of her husband, Hunter's father. At school, Hunter develops an attraction to newcomer Kate, another spirit elemental (Kemmerer's mythos includes an extra element), which leads to many descriptions of kissing. And tension: Kate is apprenticed to yet another spirit elemental, who is out to kill the Merrick brothers. While it's refreshing to have the paranormal action mostly taking a back seat to more human teen concerns, genre readers will be disappointed at the flat denouement. Unless, of course, they are attached enough to the elemental Merrick boys from the first two books to want to just hang out in their parallel universe. It's rather odd that Hunter never seems to use his powers and equally odd that Kemmerer appends a short, "bonus" novella to the end of the book that is all about Nick, an air elemental who recognizes that he is actually gay and not ever going to grow into an attraction to girls. For dedicated series fans only. (Paranormal romance. 12-18)
