Earth. Fire. Air. Water.
One misstep and they lose it all. For the last time.
Michael Merrick understands pressure. He's the only parent his three brothers have had for years. His power to control Earth could kill someone if he miscalculates. Now an Elemental Guide has it in for his family, and he's all that stands in the way.
His girlfriend, Hannah, understands pressure too. She's got a child of her own, and a job as a firefighter that could put her life in danger at any moment.
But there are people who have had enough of Michael's defiance, his family's 'bad luck'. Before he knows it, Michael's enemies have turned into the Merricks' enemies, and they're armed for war.
They're not interested in surrender. But Michael isn't the white flag type anyway. Everything is set for the final showdown.
Four elements, one family. Will they hold together, or be torn apart?
Someone is setting fires and trying to kill the brothers. Michael has to figure out who it is and stop them. Hannah wants to know what is going on. What are these secrets Michael keeps from her.
Michael deserves happiness but he cannot afford it. It could cost them lives, namely Hannah’s.
In this installment of the Elementals, Michael has a lot to handle…. A fire destroying the neighborhood, Hannah’s dad and fire marshal thinking he is the one starting the fires, Hannah and his relationship on the rocks, his brothers safety and wellbeing, his business to keep afloat, his enemy now an allay. …… Too say Michael is a little stressed is putting it mildly.
Michael must find a place to live, convince Hannah to stay with him, convince the fire marshal of his innocence, keep his brothers and Hunter safe and find out what Guide (if it is a Guide) is trying to kill them and stop him. Sounds easy right.
This story has a lot of action. And the events that rock Michael’s foundation are sad and depressing. The bad just keeps piling on him. But at the very end you are left with a bit of hope for the future of the brothers.
I am hoping that this is not the last book in the series. It did not end with a cliffhanger but it left room for more story to come.
Rating: 3 ½ stars
