That ending was the worst!!!! I thought that it was going to keep going because there is so many unanswered questions but it just stops. I don't know if she set it up to where she could write more of she got more books picked up but that's totally how it seems. I am not happy with that ending if there won't be anymore books.
Well about the actual story, it was good. I am not a huge fan of Michael. I don't hate him or anything he just isn't my favorite Merrick. (Nick and Gabriel are my favorite.) He treats his brothers like they are a burden more than he treats them with compassion. I know he loves them but sometimes it would be okay to show that.
The only thing I have to say about Hunter is he finally redeemed himself and I don't think he is gone. Like I complained about first thing I don't feel like the ending was sufficient so I will have to answer all my questions on my own and Hunter being gone doesn't feel like it was right. Also why would you drop the bomb about Irish and then make it lead to no where? I am so perplexed about how this ended that I can't get over it.
I am glad everyone found a little bit of peace for now. I would have given this book 5 stars if not for the ending. I loved the series and I wish there was more to it. I wish there was one more book in alternating views between the brothers that answered the holes that were left open.
Sacrifice is the very last Elemental book and it finally features Michael otherwise known as my favorite Merrick boy. I'm so glad that I was right to have high expectations for this book (and Michael) because this book rocked. It's my favorite out of all five.
So Michael is amazing, okay? He really is. I love his brothers but I've always had a thing for Michael from the start. He's a fantastic character to read about and I admire his love and responsibility for his family, which not only includes his brothers but also Hunter, Hannah and James, in my opinion. I just love the guy.
This book was high on the action factor. There was a lot of action (something I really missed in the previous book) so of course I loved. Together with awesome writing, funny and sometimes heartbreaking scenes it made for one hell of a book.
Michael's brothers weren't in it a whole lot due to certain circumstances but I think Hunter (and maybe Tyler) too made up for that. Hunter really became part of the family and Michael did see him as a brother.
We also got Hannah's point of view. I was never a fan of her ever since she entered the books but I started loving her now. She's so feisty! I really hadn't expected to like her this much but there you go. Her relationship with Michael might only just be beginning but oh how I love them together. Yeah, Hannah totally won me over.
The only slightly minor point was that I wished Becca would've made an appearance. But I guess her father was keeping her safe with everything going on so I get it. Still... I kind of missed her.
Overall, Sacrifice by Brigid Kemmerer was the best Elemental book I've read. It had everything I want in a great book; romance, action, great writing and emotional scenes. Oh and FYI: your heart will be broken.
I love everything about this series and have had a lot of fun getting to read about this intriguing group of brothers and the people they love. This is another series that I’m sad to see end and hope that the author writes more about them in the future.
With the title being Sacrifice, I’m sure you can infer that there are indeed plenty of sacrifices in the story. You’ll see many kinds of sacrifices and one towards the end is undeniably sad.
The story moves fast so there is not a lot of time to just sit back and breathe. Overall I loved that the events in this series happened over such a short amount of time. Let’s just say that you will feel a myriad of emotions while reading.
I would highly recommend this series because of how fun yet intense it all is and because of how much you’ll find yourself caring about all of the characters.
