Book Review: Elemental

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.

One thing I loved, loved, loved about Elemental was Brigid’s writing. She has a way of sucking you in and holding you captive until the story is over. I definitely wanted to read more when I finished.

Emily knows she’s supposed to stay away from Michael. He allegedly beat up her brother, her family wants him dead, and his powers are extremely dangerous. But Emily is starting to see a different side to the story than what she’s been told. When her feelings for Michael escalate, she’s forced to make a decision. Will she choose her family, or Michael?

There was something amazing about Emily and Michael. Oftentimes in paranormal romance, there isn’t a gradual build. Brigid doesn’t overdo the romance aspect, although I couldn’t help but feel like there was an electric hum between these two, buzzing just beneath the exterior. They have the potential to be a powerful couple, yet the story just barely skimmed the surface of what might be. That doesn’t happen frequently, and it’s not easy to write.

Overall, if you enjoy reading a good paranormal romance story, then I’d recommend this one. It’s a prequel to the Elemental series, and it’s around 50 pages, so it’s a quick read.
