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 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.
Mini-Review: This novella was a great intoduction into the author's world. I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy the first book in the series, so when I saw this novella was free on Kindle, I jumped at the chance to check it out. Now, I'm definitely intrigued and can't wait to get my hands on Storm, the first full-length book in the series. The novella introduced the world of the Elementals and their powers, while still keeping a bit of mystery. Emily and Michael were very interesting characters, and I can't wait to learn more about them, and the others who were introduced. The cover is a bright green, which looks good next to the blue and red of books one and two. I really liked the tree branches surrounding the cover model, signifying the powers of an earth elemental.
