Being a force of nature doesn’t keep you safe.

Hunter Garrity is used to watching his back. The kids at school sense something different about him. And they’re right.

Hunter has powers that have nothing to do with how hard he can throw a punch.

Maybe that’s what Clare Kasten is picking up. She’s shy, quiet, and intense, but she’s sought him out. There’s no telling what she wants from him.

But Hunter knows enough to sense a secret when it’s close. And getting close to Clare is a danger he’s ready to face…

What is it that makes Hunter who he is?  In this novella, you find out a little bit of Hunter’s history.  It starts out like other books in the Elemental series, with tales of Hunter being bullied.  He is walking home from school, hears someone following him and it reminds him of the other times he was picked on during school.  Only, this time, it isn’t who he thinks it is. 

The person that is following him is Clare Kasten.  She says that she wanted to talk to him about a presentation he made in class about guns.  She continues to ask him about and if he knows how to use them.  She eventually talks Hunter into showing them to her.  That is when Hunter’s uncle walks in.  He isn’t happy is what he sees and reminds Hunter of what their ability is and how it will affect them.  What does Clare really want from Hunter?  Why is it that Hunter’s uncle and father warn him away from Clare? 

After reading Storm, I was very interested to learn more about Hunter Garrity.  You don’t get to learn a lot about him in Storm, just that he is unsual in the world of elementals.  I liked this novella.  It gave you some background into why Hunter says, does and acts the way he does.  Fearless is book 1.5 in the Elemental series and I’m very interested to learn more about the Merricks in Spark.
