Series: Elemental #0.5
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis from Goodreads: Earth, Fire, Air, Water they are more than you dream. 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 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.
After reading Storm I couldn't wait to read more of this series! And Kobo was so nice to put Elemental as a free copy right after my copy of Storm! Yay! So I immediate read it!
If you've read Storm you know the short version of Micheal's story and his encounter with Emily. This tells the complete story from their point of view. And I loved it! In Storm he's a bit distant and more a parent than a brother, but after reading Elemental I absolutely love him! He was such a sweet boy!
Although this is the story before Storm, it's better to read after, because it contains spoilers. I also think this story is better if you read it in the 'wrong' order. You get to know Micheal through Chris and Becca in Storm, and it makes this story more special when you get to know Micheal in a different way.
It's only 49 pages and I would have liked it if it was a lot longer! If you love the Elemental series you have to read this. You'll not be disappointed!
