Gabriel Merrick plays with fire. Literally.

Sometimes he can even control it. And sometimes he can’t. Like the fire that killed his parents.

Gabriel has always had his brothers to rely on, especially his twin, Nick. But when an arsonist starts wreaking havoc on their town, all the signs point to Gabriel. Only he’s not doing it.

More than Gabriel’s pride is at stake — this could cost him his family, maybe his life. And no one seems to hear him. Except a shy sophomore named Layne, a brainiac who dresses in turtlenecks and jeans and keeps him totally off balance. Layne understands family problems, and she understands secrets. She has a few of her own.

Gabriel can’t let her guess about his brothers, about his abilities, about the danger that’s right at his heels. But there are some risks he can’t help taking.

The fuse is lit…

Earth, Fire, Air, Water – they have more power than you dream.
Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—all the ones she doesn’t want. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.

And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.

Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all.

The storm is coming . . .

And it’s time for yet another Blue Monday! Which book will I recommend for you guys to make the transition from weekend to Monday a little easier? It’s Spark by Brigid Kemmerer! This book will be out on August 28, so technically you have to wait for another day to look for this book, but I hope it’s worth waiting for. This book is the second book in the Elemental series (actually 4th, there are some extra’s). After having read the first book Storm (review to come as usual 😉 ) a couple of weeks ago I was blown off my feet and had to wait till now for the next book… So you guys can probably guess what I’ll be doing tomorrow, right?? 😉

Blue Mondays (6): Fearless by Brigid Kemmerer

Blue Mondays

Monday mornings are the toughest mornings. Knowing the weekend is over and you’ll have to go to school or work again… But here is my solution: Blue Mondays!  Every Monday I will pick an awesome book, which I hope will make the week almost bearable for you. Cause reading it will make you forget about everything else! And before you know it, weekend has started once again ^^

Fearless by Brigid Kemmerer

Being a force of nature doesn’t keep you safe.
Hunter Garrity is used to watching his back. The kids at school sense something different about him. And they’re right.

Hunter has powers that have nothing to do with how hard he can throw a punch.

Maybe that’s what Clare Kasten is picking up. She’s shy, quiet, and intense, but she’s sought him out. There’s no telling what she wants from him.

But Hunter knows enough to sense a secret when it’s close. And getting close to Clare is a danger he’s ready to face…

As promised here’s this weeks Blue Monday, to make parting with the weekend a little easier. I hope reading this book will help you get through the week a little easier ^^ Especially for all the people not having summer holidays (okay, now I’m probably rubbing it in…)

This weeks book is the sequel / extra (still not quite sure what to call this one) of Storm, a book I found amazing. I haven’t posted that review yet, but don’t worry I will one of these days ^^ Be warned, though, it’s a really short book (only 44 pages) and the best way to read it is after reading the other books (hint, hint ^^). It’s a nice warming up for the next book in this series, which comes out at the end of this month. I haven’t read it yet, but it is very high on my “books I must read next” list, so no spoilers please 😉
