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…
Another short stories to help understand a little bit better the Merrick brothers and the other elemental people in this town, but this one was a bit different and I’m not so sure was the right choice at the moment.
At first it was okay to know more about Hunter, but it ended so suddenly that it got me thinking a full novel would be best and it would explain better his relationship with his family.
All I got was how disappointed he was to be left behind once again like a spoiled kid, knowing well enough how dangerous his father job was. But I liked his dad and he was right all along and it would be better to wait.
Clare story was not necessary and it left me thinking the author wanted us to think of Michael and Hunter as boys suffering for pretty little girls. Not god in my opinion, but I liked so much the novel in this series, that a couple novellas left me sad.
