Hunter Garrity's life has been chaos ever since his dad and uncles death. He's mother is too deep in grief to be bothered with taking care of her only son, his grandfather is psycho and gives Hunter hell, and the Merrick brothers are cautious and suspicious of his every move. He can't trust anyone because everyone seems to have their own agenda, including the hot new girl Kate. She keeps trying to get close to Hunter and he can't figure out why. Can he trust her? Or will she lead him down the path to his own doom?

****WARNING: This review will contain major spoilers, nasty language, and general ranty-ness. Proceed with caution****

I've made no secret of the fact that Hunter isn't my favorite character in this series. I initially liked him in the first novel, but the further I got the less I liked him. It's obvious that the Merrick brothers want to help him, as does Becca, but he just can't let his guard down to trust them and it's freaking infuriating. So I started this warily because I knew a book through his perspective would change my opinion of him and I wasn't sure I wanted it to change. Well, I was right, it changed. Poor Hunter just can't win no matter how hard he tries. He's own grandfather believes the worst of him and actually hits him several times. Seriously, dude, really? Beating up your own grandson? To make matters worse, his mother watches the whole interaction and doesn't lift a finger to help Hunter. She just freaking watches as Hunter gets his butt handed to him. The further I got, the more I just wanted to help him. At one point he is sleeping in his Jeep, seriously contemplating theft as a means to keep feeding himself and Casper, his dog.

I'm a HUGE fan of this series . I jumped up and down in excitement when I saw that this book was on Netgalley

I have waited almost a YEAR for this book and I'm telling you that this book is worth the wait!

Now let me just state that if you haven't started this series you should because this series is great fun and is different. Even though I didn't like Book #2 in the series as much as Book #1 I was still dying to get my hands on this book and I think that shows how great this series is!

This book is told from the point of view of Hunter and Kate. If you remember what happened in book #2 then you might have mixed feelings towards Hunter and Kate is introduced to us in this book.

The story picks up where it was left off and what a story it is! It's filled with twists and turns and manages to keep you hooked till the end. Brigid Kemmerer doesn't disappoint and leaves you begging for more without the help of the handy cliffhanger.

Hunter is a very complex character. I have very mixed feelings towards him. Throughout this novel I wasn't sure if I loved him/hated him/felt sorry for him or wanted to hit him.

I think it's safe to say that I'm not a huge fan of Hunter but I did feel for him and connected with him despite my mixed feelings towards him.He's been through a lot plus he lacked parental guidance throughout his teenage years so I it was simple to empathize and sympathize with him even when he made stupid decisions.

Kate was a character that helped us to understand the elemental world better. She gave insight into the whole system in a unique way. I love the fact that Brigid's female characters are always so strong mentally and Kate is strong both mentally and physically.

Spirit by Brigid Kemmerer
Book Three of the Elemental series
Publisher: K Teen
Publication Date: May 28, 2013
Rating: 4 stars
Source: Bought a paperback copy

Summary (from Goodreads):

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…

What I Liked:

Shame on me for not reading this book sooner. Shame on me. I've had an ARC of this book since like, early winter 2013 (March ish?), and then I bought a copy (and had it signed, yay) at the Baltimore Book Festival, when I met Brigid Kemmerer and Jennifer L. Armentrout and Diana Peterfreund, and a few other Young Adult (and some adult) authors. Why did I wait so long to read this book?!

Well, no matter. I finally read it, and LOVED it. I couldn't have a brand-new, freshly signed book not get read eventually. And, I have Secret for review. Though these books can be read as standalones, I hate reading books out of order, or skipping books in series. So, I read Spirit.
