Short Story Review Sunday [Saturday Edition]: Elemental


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.


Elemental gives us a first insight of what I'm getting myself into. This series is about four... there are four, right? brothers with really freaking strong elemental powers. And in this novella, we encounter one of them. Elemental is told in both Michael's and Emily's point of views. About how the two of them fall in love with each other when both are supposedly off-limits to each other. It's an interesting story when super powers are in the mix with the story because everything is better when super powers are in the equation of the story. The only problem is that the story starts a little slow for Michael's part when there are only seven chapters and I think more can go on in this story. But I think that's quite a good start and I will keep reading this series.

Rating: 7/10
