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.

This novella sheds some light on how this whole mess really started.  We see some of what occurred when Michael was 17 years old and a bit of what happened when the original deal was made, before the Merrick’s parents died.

I always have mixed feelings about these little companion novellas and short stories.  In this case, I feel like it ended too soon and I wish that some more of the gaps had been filled in.

It does shed some light on why Michael is so hesitant to get involved, and I was kind of surprised at some of the conclusions I was able to arrive at after reading this one.  You really need to give this series a read for yourself.  You won’t regret it.

About Brigid Kemmerer

Brigid Kemmerer was born in Omaha, Nebraska, though her parents quickly moved her all over the United States, from the desert in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to the lakeside in Cleveland, Ohio, and several stops in between, eventually settling near Annapolis, Maryland. Brigid started writing in high school, and her first real “novel” was about four brothers causing a ruckus in the suburbs. Those four brothers are the same boys living in the pages of The Elemental Series, so Brigid likes to say she’s had four teenage boys taking up space in her head for the last seventeen years. (Though sometimes that just makes her sound nuts.)

Brigid loves hearing from people, and she probably won’t refer to herself in the third person like this if you actually correspond with her. She has a smartphone surgically attached to her person, and email is the best way to reach her. Her email address is brigidmary@gmail.com.
