Elementals: The Blood of the Hydra (Elementals #2) by Michelle Madow (Review)
A second installation of the Elementals series, Elementals: Blood of the Hydra continues where the last novel ended off. The elemental team needs to save the world from it's end via ancient monsters, and to do that they need to go on a mission to make weapons that can kill an immortal monster. While on this mission Nicole is faced with her attraction to Blake and whether or not he is worth the risk of causing tension in her team.
I could describe my experience with this novel in three words: it was okay. I didn't love it, and I didn't hate it. It felt like a filler sequel novel in the series. It moved the plot along a bit, but it did not stand out on it's own as an amazing novel. There was some higher and interesting stakes in this novel as the teens went on a series of dangerous missions to get the ingredients they needed. The action scenes were pretty interesting, but overall the novel was pretty dull. They was a lot of what felt like filler details, put there to extend the novel, but on their own did not enhance the novel in any way. I give Elementals: Blood of the Hydra the rating of THREE OUT OF FIVE STARS!!!
