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 next journey in their quest to save the world—or die trying.
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
The Blood of the Hydra starts pretty much where The Prophecy of Shadows left off. Our Elementals are training hard both with their powers, and by fighting without them. Nicole and Blake aren't together, although they both want to be. After fighting a monster, Nicole receives a 'tip' from Apollo on how to read the Book of Shadows. This leads them to making a concoction to coat their weapons with in order to fight the monsters. Of course, nothing is simple, and they have battles to face to get each of the ingredients.
Book two is written just as good as book one, and continues to set a thrilling and adventurous pace. These characters are well rounded and continue to grow in my affections! I even like Danielle now!! Instead, my animosity moved to Ethan and Rachael, but I'll leave that there to ensure I don't give out any spoilers!
This series just keeps on getting better and better, and I can't wait for the summer when the next book is due out. Highly recommended!
