Elemental #3 Spirit

HAPPY RELEASE DAY...... Spirit this time.... bring it on. Presenting Elemental #3 Spirit by Brigid Kemmerer.

Here is the summary of the book:

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…

Its Hunter's tale and its not all sunshine and roses. Picks up right sometime after Spark ended and Hunter it seems has alienated himself from the Merrick brothers after his bad decisions in Spark. Even Becca isn't talking anymore and Hunter feels like the person on the outside looking right in. But then Kate Sullivan enters his life.... she is new to town and butting heads where they don't matter.... And the danger still persists because Hunter doesn't know how to stop Calla Dean and the question of the dangerous guide leaves a bitter taste in everyone's mouth.

Brigid Kemmerer I seriously want to know how you get the inspiration for such dashing men...... come on thats like a distinctive talent to focus on one of them each book and make us fall irrevocably and utterly in love with them (so jealous of their girlfriends). I admit i was hesitant about Spirit, as it moves away from the Merricks to the outcast tough guy with bad-ass tattoos. But Kemmerer just had to make us fall in love with him didn't she.... Oh !I'm not complaining it was pretty educational too..... But no need to sound unhappy you guys the Merrick brothers are still here and they look out for their own.... its just Hunter needs to learn to trust them more.

I really liked Kate's character here. She comes on all at once, she is spunky, sassy, smart and a right seductress to boot and is just enough to lighten the phase Hunter is going through, what with picking a fight with just about everyone there was. The romance here is just something you have never seen before... its fun, its needy, balancing and sometimes just sweet at the same time.

Nothing less than spectacular, Kemmerer spins a tale well a part of a tale with the least known characters. Bringing every feeling, every emotion and splashing them across the pages.... and we feel right at home. Another amazing talent of an author..... her writing the way she brings out a story from inside a story and gives it an appropriate position too. In a way Spirit had much more drama than all other books of the series.....Brilliant..... keep it rolling Ms. Kemmerer.... can't wait for Nick and Mike's tale next.

  1. I adore this series! I am so glad you loved this one as much as I did!

  2. You liked this one much more than I did. I thought it was a bit of a disappointment after Breathless and Spark.

  3. I really enjoyed this one, and totally agree that it makes you feel every emotion, but it's not my favorite of the series. Sometimes Hunter was just too mistrustful! Haha

  4. Oh I'm glad you liked this one! I really enjoyed it too, though I was also a little worried that it wouldn't be as good as the previous book. Lovely review. :)

  5. I was definitely surprise by Kate's fate though. Poor Hunter.

  6. A wonderful review! I loved both Hunter & Kate in this, they went through so much.

    This series just gets better & better! so excited for Nick's book.
