Description-

  • First in the Elemental series: "A refreshingly human paranormal romance" in which a girl stumbles into a world of adventure, danger, and romantic intrigue (Kirkus Reviews).

    Thanks to her vindictive ex-boyfriend, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting attention from all the guys—and not the kind of attention she wants. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a fight in the school parking lot. He's a nice enough boy, even if he is a bit odd—he barely even fought back against his attackers.

    But Becca soon discovers that Chris is no weakling. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They're powerful. Dangerous. And they have been marked for death. And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.

    But secrets are hard to keep when your life is at stake. So when Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, proves to be a possible ally, Becca thinks she can trust him. But when Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, Becca must uncover which one is hiding the most dangerous truth of all.

    Because a storm is coming . . .

    In this first book in the Elemental series, Brigid Kemmerer launches a thrilling new young adult series full of "magic, suspense, and enough twists to keep you reading until sunrise" (Erica O'Rourke).

    April 1, 2012
    A refreshingly human paranormal romance. Becca has never paid much attention to the Merrick brothers, until she sees the youngest, Chris, getting beat up by some bullies. Having lost their parents, Michael, the eldest, acts as his brothers' guardian while running his landscaping business. The twins, Gabriel and Nick, are at school with Becca and Chris. That they all have paranormal abilities relating to the classical elements is slowly revealed, but this revelation is nicely paralleled by Becca's own growth, as she gradually gains some control of her own life after being sexually attacked by a group of guys when she was drunk. Becca's best friend Quinn is far more comfortable with her sexuality than Becca. All the relationships unfold with a natural pacing and just enough surprises. The romantic triangle among Becca, Chris and new arrival Hunter dwells on human details and stays just this side of too much information. The big reveal is a bit absurd when examined, but no one should look at any of this closely. Oddly, a prequel follows the end of the story, providing some of the Merricks' back story. Read fast and keep that heart rate up. (Paranormal romance. 12 & up)

    Gr 9 Up-High school junior Becca Chandler is dealing with lies an ex-boyfriend is spreading about her and interest from two new guys at school, one with a reputation as a troublemaker and the other, a boy with a secret. In addition, she learns about the Elementals, people with power over fire, water, earth, and air, knowledge that makes her dangerous and marks her for possible death. This novel features an interesting story line and a strong heroine with realistic reactions to difficult situations. The writing is accessible, and the plot offers a new take on the supernatural genre, despite a logic flaw regarding why Elementals with power over one element are considered dangerous, while others, with even greater powers, are valued. Because of the romantic relationships, this debut novel invites possible comparisons with Twilight. It has great appeal to readers of supernatural fiction, as well anyone looking for a fast-paced story, realistic and relatable female protagonists, and serious issues that show up, surprisingly, in the last couple of chapters. It contains scenes involving underage drinking and sexual violence, making it most appropriate for older teens.-Natasha Forrester, Multnomah County Library, OR
