With power comes enemies. Lots of them.
Hunter Garrity just wants to be left alone. He’s learned the hard way that his unusual abilities come at a price. And he can’t seem to afford any allies.
He’s up to his neck in hostiles. His grandfather, spoiling for a fight. The Merrick brothers, who think he ratted them out. Calla, the scheming psycho who wants to use him as bait.
Then there’s Kate Sullivan, the new girl at school. She’s not hostile. She’s bold. Funny. Hot. But she’s got an agenda, too.
With supposedly secret powers rippling to the surface everywhere around him, Hunter knows something ugly is about to go down. But finding out what means he’ll have to find someone he can trust…
Spirit is the newest title in Brigid Kemmerer's Merrick Brothers series. So far I have enjoyed them all - 3 Novellas: Elemental, Breathless and Fearless and 3 full length novels: Storm, Spark and Spirit- and this one was no exception. Each book is about a different brother and we get to see some great action in each one, along with wonderful character growth.
Spirit is a little different because the main character is NOT a Merrick brother. Hunter Garrity is actually a hunter of elementals, which is of course what the brothers are, and it is interesting to see how circumstance collide to turn his life upside down. How Hunter comes to realise that all is not as he has been told makes for a great read.
The books each have an intriguing mystery and some great action. If you haven't tried this series yet give them a go. Four misunderstood hot brothers? What's not to love?
