A demigod who can kill with a touch. It's an ability that must be kept secret, even from those trusted most.
Finding out that she was a witch was strange enough, but now Nicole must face the realization that she has the rare power to kill with just a touch. No one can know her secret -- not even Blake, who she's had undeniable chemistry with since first moving to town.
Now Nicole, Blake, and the three others with elemental powers must stop a series of monsters that they previously believed to be dead from rising once again and destroying the mortal world. The creatures they face on this journey will be more dangerous than anything they've encountered yet. Will they all survive the quest? And how long will it be until Nicole is forced to use her ability to kill in front of everyone, revealing the true darkness of her powers?
Find out in The Blood of the Hydra, and join the Elementals on their quest to save the world -- or die trying.
Elementals: The Blood of the Hydra by Michelle Madow jumps right in where the last book ended. The story is so fast paced, it is hard to keep up at times. I wasn’t as impressed with book two as I was with book one. I feel like there is a little bit of the second book slump here. I was hoping to be completely engrossed like I was with the last book and that isn’t what happened. I feel like the group of friends was still great. They interact well with each other.
My favorite thing about this series is the Greek mythology that is mixed into everything. A good chunk of this book takes place in Greece and with that it would have been nice to have a bit more of the Greek setting in the book. I think there were a few minor details that should have been fixed. The Elder of Greece should have had an accent. I think there should have been more research and authenticity.
