YA Review: Elemental by Brigid Kemmerer

Elemental (Elemental #0.5)
by Brigid Kemmerer
Purchase Links:  Amazon Barnes & Noble

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.
I have been wanted to read Storm and thought I would start with Elemental since I have not read this series. I liked Elemental and love the Romeo and Juliet theme with enemies falling in love.

When Michael and Emily first meet it was not on good terms. She wanted to beat him over the head with a golf club.

He leaned in. “I come here every Wednesday and Friday.”
Emily Nodded.
“You going to try and kill me every time?”

Michael is dangerous with his power, if he loses control he can be sent away. There is a mix up with him and Emily’s brother. Emily soon realizes he is not as bad as her brother and parents make him out to be. He is actually sweet, caring and just trying to live a normal life.

I wanted to know more about how they got their powers. There is no back story on how these bad guys can come and take him away.

I enjoyed reading about Michael and Emily. I wish there was more to their story. The ending left me wanting to know how they would of kept there relationship going with both parents as enemies. I did get to read the first chapter in Storm at the end and off course it left me wanting more. I had to buy it. Brigid Kemmerer has a great writing voice. The characters felt real. I look forward to reading about the rest of the brothers.
