Waiting on Wednesday: Spirit

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted over at Breaking the Spine, looking at upcoming books we bloggers are already obsessing about. This week, I’m Waiting On Spirit, by Brigid Kemmerer. I loved both Storm and Spark, the first two books in Brigid Kemmerer’s Elementals trilogy. Needless to say, I’m pumped for the third, which is due out in May!

spirit “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

Spark – by Brigid Kemmerer

This series began with Storm, published earlier this year. I enjoyed Storm, and was excited to see the sequel follow so quickly. After snapping up the book from work, it was the last of my holiday reads. Here’s what I thought of book 2 of Brigid Kemmerer’s ‘Elementals’ series:

Layne has made flying under the radar an art form. Unwilling to deal with the gossip and bitchiness that comes with being one of the popular kids, she instead stays well away, dressing down, keeping quiet. Gabriel Merrick couldn’t be more different. His hot temper draws him more attention than is sensible, because the more attention Gabe gets, the more likely it is that he’ll give away his family’s secrets.

Like his brothers, Gabriel is an elemental. He has the ability to call and (sometimes, at least) control fire. But this power goes both ways: fire calls to Gabriel, and often – too often – goads him on. The only thing as legendary as Gabriel’s fiery temper is the reputation it’s earned him.
