Spirit by Brigid Kemmerer
Publication Date: May 28th 2013
|Spirit - K Teen|
With power comes enemies. Lots of them.
Hunter Garrity just wants to be left alone. He’s learned the hard way that his unusual abilities come at a price. And he can’t seem to afford any allies.
He’s up to his neck in hostiles. His grandfather, spoiling for a fight. The Merrick brothers, who think he ratted them out. Calla, the scheming psycho who wants to use him as bait.
Then there’s Kate Sullivan, the new girl at school. She’s not hostile. She’s bold. Funny. Hot. But she’s got an agenda, too.
With supposedly secret powers rippling to the surface everywhere around him, Hunter knows something ugly is about to go down. But finding out what means he’ll have to find someone he can trust…
Synopsis from goodreads.com.
I just started the second book in Brigid Kemmerer's Elemental series, Spark, and like it already. Elementals can control one of the natural elements and are therefore powerful, but dangerous. Even so, they are humans and struggle with every day life. That's what I like about this series so much, combining raw power with every day feelings. Every book concentrates on one of the Elementals in and around the Merrick family. Spirit is the third book in this series and it centers on Hunter. He's familiar from the first book, but I couldn't figure him out then, closed of as he was. Still, he is probably the most intriguing character in this series until now (besides Michael) and I'm very curious to find out more about him.
Are you waiting for a next book in a series as well? Leave us a comment with your pick.
