The story introduces us to powerful earth elemental Michael and air elemental Emily. Michael is so powerful that the other elemental families fear his abilities and worry that he could expose them all, they are so frightened of him that they would prefer to see him dead than let him live his life. Thanks to a deal made by his parents Michael is safe for now but only if he keeps to the conditions that his family agreed to. He doesn't want to cause trouble but the other elemental families will do anything to provoke him into breaking the truce. Emily's family have always warned her to stay away from Michael, in fact they have banned any kind of contact with him, but when they are thrown together due to circumstances out of their control the attraction between them is hard to resist.
I really enjoyed Elemental and am looking forward to continuing the series. We haven't been told much about the different elemental abilities yet so I can't wait to learn more. My main complaint about this story is that it ended on such a cliffhanger and from what I understand the story isn't picked up immediately in Storm. In fact Storm is about Michael's younger brother Chris so I'm a bit worried we won't get a full resolution to the events in Elemental. I am however looking forward to getting to know Michael's family better and I hope that we see more of him and Emily throughout the series.
Brigid Kemmerer lets us see a glimpse of what it's like to have power like Michael Merrick does. He controls the Earth, but his power is so big that it can easily get out of control and do something irreparable. His parents, his little brothers, are all suffering because of him. They almost treat him like a ticking bomb, expecting him to explode so they can declare him dangerous. But we also get to see an outsider's view of him. Emily, who couldn't do but trust what her parents said about him -- and then learning that was far from the truth.
There's so much tension in this book, it's almost palpable. Tension in him, with his powers, within his family, with everyone outside it. In Elemental we only get a glance of his brothers: the twins, and the youngest of them. Not much, but enough to make me intrigued and want to learn more about them!
Something was there between Emily and Michael. Yeah, SOMETHING. Oh, boy, their attraction-repulsion feelings was so strong and clearly depicted it left me breathless. How could a book be so intense right from the start?
Wow. This novella left me amazed. I really, really cannot wait to read the next and first book, Storm.
It seems impossible to allow a reader to fall in love with characters in only fifty pages but Brigid Kemmerer managed just that in Elemental. The novella is short but is full of impact and emotion and it just pulls the reader straight into the story. It sets the scene, it begins it all and it really is just a brilliant way to get the readers interested in the story. It is a prequel that is not necessarily needed to be read but it is so enjoyable that I don't know why you'd want to miss it.
A Pull in the Air
The story that is in the novella is so cute to read. I could really get into both Emily and Michael's heads. I knew what they were thinking, why they were acting as they did and I just wanted to give them both hugs. I liked how it all came about, how things happened and just the way that it was the beginning of it all. If this had never happened then the events in Storm and Spark may never have happened either. This was the telling of the beginning and it was told so beautifully.
A Rustle of the Wind
Michael and Emily are brilliant characters. Even within 50 pages it was easy to see that they weren't flat and boring characters. They had lives and histories and depth. It wasn't easy, it wasn't laid out in front of them. They were both strong, stubborn and equally found it difficult to resist the emotions that ran through them. I loved them together and just felt that they were so made for each other. Seeing this side of Michael was really pleasant and I liked getting to know his character in this way.
The Storm is Coming
It leaves the story in such a cliff-hanger that I simply had to buy Storm straight away - but I had to wait for it to be released - what is that about?Read more ›
Elemental is set five years before Storm, and I was assured by Brodie that reading this before Storm wouldn't spoil anything. Michael is a Pure Earth Elemental, meaning he has an awesome amount of power of the earth. If he doesn't keep a reign on his power, he can cause momentus damage, and even kill. The other Elementals in his area know this, and fear for their safety. One slip up could mean their lives. Everyone would be much safer if he was dead.
Since moving to the area, Michael has grown up knowing this is the way things are, and the only reason he's not already dead is because of the deals his parents made with the others. Money passed hands with the assurance Micheal will behave and stay away from all other Elementals. So when Emily starts a new summer job at a sports complex where Michael happens to use the batting cages, people get nervous - on both sides.
This is such a great story! A great set up for Storm to see the world these characters live in and the problems they face. The chemistry between Emily and Michael is electric, and you just want them to get together now, but there are so many problems. This story is told from both Michael and Emily's perspectives, so you can see their doubts, but you can also see their home lives, and how both sets of parents try to control their children. It's a hard world they both live in, and Michael's life is balancing on a knife edge. It's just a taster of what's to come, and I can't wait for Storm! Elemental ends on such a cliffhanger, and I want more now!
A brilliant short story, the beginning of what looks to be a fantastic series!
