Valerie Moore is an Elemental, a person who commands one of the classical elements of wind, water, fire, or earth. She’s special, though. She controls two—fire and water—though sometimes it seems like they control her.

After the accidental exposure of Elementals to humanity, Valerie finds herself—and all of her kind—struggling to attain equality. Three different groups figh

Overall like the book. I like the plot and story line. I like the way the characters set aside differences to do what is right and stop bad from taking over and hurting others.

Valerie still frustrated the heck out of me. she is still self absorbed at times. i didn’t like how treats some people. she also flitted with emotions and didn’t consider the consequences. for instance she is placed in a power struggle and ends up having to do something to keep peace but she gets angry when that backfires

Struggles from many different sides make this a read full of unexpected twists and turns.

The world has changed. Now, each group of Elementals is fighting to find their place and all have their own secret plans to gain power. Valerie is caught up in between, not sure which side she should join. But one thing is clear, she needs to set aside all differences and take the help of her comrades to stop a much greater evil.

There's a lot going on in these pages, and it's a lovely play of shades of gray

***I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.***

This book picked up right where the last one left off. It was another great book by Elle Middaugh. I fell in love with this series because it was so different from what I have read. There aren't really many books that have elemental inspiration within them.

Valerie ... She is still trying to figure out which group she should join or even if she shouldn't join any. She was away after the big fight at the end of book 1 and her entire world ha

Elemental Lies by Elle Middaugh is the follow up to her book Elemental Secrets. I was really looking forward to this book after the way book 1 ended, and while the book was good, I felt like it was missing something that the initial book had. Don't get me wrong, I still recommend it, but it seemed like it was a little off in the construction. That could be because it is another cliff hanger and there will be another book in the series though.

In this one we follow Val and the havoc the discovery

Elemental Lies' ( Essential Elements #2 )
By Elle Middaugh.

Review in short.
* 5/5 stars for me.
* Fab plot. Developed very well.
* Lots of action.
* Love triangle ( Yes one of sorts... )

LOVED IT!! Brilliant second book in the Elemental series. Again I found it had me from page one. I found I kept reading just busting to see what was going to happen next!

In this second installment, we see lots of action between Elementals.
Lots of lies. No one knows who to trust. We see characters that we fell in love

So yes this was just wow. The quick paced adventure. And it was a scary one for Val, friends and family. In this book it continues on from the aftermath of book 1. Where you didn't know if friends, family, neighbors or foes were alive or dead. For me I feel that Val learned so much but not enough. Now Val had to eventually go home from her hideaway. But what they find are everyone is on a side and not a good or bad side. and humans are more afraid now then ever of different humans. Val finds Sie ...more

I just finished Book 2 of the Essential Elements Series. I can't wait for Book 3 Elemental Betrayal. I have essentially fallen in love with the characters of this series. It is a must read!

I absolutely can't wait for the next book to come out. This book is much better than the first. The characters keep on getting better.

3.5 stars.
After the exposure of Val, all immortals are left in danger. She flees with her cousin and two other trusted friends. When they finally do return their world as they know it is different. Humans know about immortals and their are rules.

Val tries to map this and be cohesive with humans but at every turn thee is an obstacle.

This was an ok read for me. I found fault with every obstacle an easy solution for Val.
