A demigod who can kill with a touch. It’s an ability that must be kept secret from everyone, even from those trusted most.

Finding out that her new school had her in a special homeroom for witches was strange enough, but now Nicole must face the realization that she has the rare power to kill with just a touch. It’s a secret she needs to keep not only from the Head Elders, but from the super-sexy witch Blake, who she’s had undeniable chemistry with even before he broke up with his long-term girlfriend, the vengeful witch Danielle.

Now Nicole and the four others gifted with powers over the elements, including Blake and Danielle, must stop a series of monsters that they previously believed to be dead from rising once again and destroying the mortal world. Three magical items are needed, including the blood of the slain hydra – ingredients that they must journey to the dangerous, mystical islands in Greece to retrieve.

The monsters they face on this journey will be more threatening than anything they’ve encountered yet. But with the fate of the world on their shoulders, it’s up to the Elementals to return home victorious. Will they find the ingredients they need? Can Nicole and her friends pull off this mission while the tension between her, Blake, and Danielle threatens to ruin everything? 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?

UPDATE POST | NEW BLOG NAME

second update post in less than a month?? how dare i!

hey, so i’ve been thinking of changing my blog name for a while now, and guess what?? i finally did it!

logo1

i’m now betweenthepages.co! i’m so happy to finally have a bookish name/url, even though i did like my old. i’ve kept my old url so it’ll continue to redirect to this blog if anyone forgets (which i doubt because no one reads my blog, cry)

anyway, i’m more than excited for this new url, hopefully new readers as i’ll post more (i’m so slack, i’m sorry).

and i’m finally reading again! i’d stopped for a but because every book i tried to read i hated! i’m reading dreamology by lucy keating and i’m absolutely enjoying it! (which is weird because it’s a contemporary, and this is the first one i’ve ever read/liked, although i think it has some /urban/ fantasy elements).

also, i’m going to try  this month, the book is Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe! read more diverse books guys.
