ELEMENTAL by Brigid Kemmerer

Brigid Kemmerer

Rating: A-
Synopsis from
Earth, Fire, Air, Water – they are more than you dream.

As an air Elemental, 17-year-old Emily Morgan doesn’t have much power. That’s okay—she knows what happens to kids who do.

Like Michael Merrick. He’s an earth Elemental, one with enough power to level cities. Which makes him sexy. Dangerous. And completely off limits. At least according to Emily’s family.

But her summer job puts her in close contact with Michael, and neither of them can help the attraction they feel. When forces of nature like theirs collide, one misstep could get someone killed. Because Emily’s family doesn’t just want her to stay away from him.

They want him dead.

My thoughts on the book:
Or novella really. It was only 50 pages, so this review will be short. However, Kemmerer's writing blew me away, so I had to say something about this. 

Elemental is a wonderful introduction to the elemental world that Kemmerer has created for her Elementals series. I know, a lot of "elemental"s in that sentence, but that's okay. Anyway, this series allows the reader to get to know a little bit about Michael and what, exactly is at stake if any of the brothers mess up. It gives a starting point to all the hate that is present in Storm, and it illustrates why Michael is the way he is.  It ends on a huge cliffhanger, but that's because it almost serves as an extended prequel to Storm. Also, the US print copy of Storm has this novella included, so you can read it if you buy Storm (which I also recommend... review to come). If you have the e-book of storm, prefer an e-copy, or live in another country, then this novella is well worth the $0.99. 

I'd recommend this novella to anyone who loves a good, light read.You'll be enthralled with the world that Kemmerer has created, and you will run out and buy Storm as soon as you've finished this.
