One misstep and they lose it all. For the last time.

Michael Merrick is used to 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 out for his family, and he’s all that stands in the way.

His girlfriend, Hannah, gets that. She’s got a kid of her own, and a job as a firefighter that could end her life without a moment’s notice.

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. There will be blood on the ground tonight…


Isn't this a beautiful cover?

Michael's book. YAY!!

I am a little behind on this series, I have Spirit and Secret to read. I am excited I have two books to read together. I may have planned that. 

Brigid is a brilliant YA author. I truly love this series. You can read all my reviews HERE  They are in order of recently read. So just scroll down and start from the start.

If you want to read a really cool YA series, this is one to pick up. Brigid really writes these lads very well. My favorite lad keeps changing. So , I have to say they are all my favorites.

This is Kensington Teen's cover, us Aussies get a different cover. I haven't seen that about the traps yet. Allen & Unwin are the publishers for us Aussies.

This series on Goodreads, alone, has an average of 4 stars with 25,500 ratings. Pretty darn impressive. That doesn't take into consideration all the other book sites. It is a guideline for how good this series is.
