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 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.

Hi, Michelle, welcome to my blog! I’m very excited to ask you a few questions today!

  1. What was your favorite part of writing The Blood of the Hydra?


My favorite part was the adventure! They get to journey to magical islands in Greece, and I had a lot of fun with it. I put a lot of humor into the book, and I’m hoping that it translates well with my readers! (But there are serious scenes in the book as well, and I didn’t make light of them with humor. I like to think that the humor is only in the places where it belongs.)


  1. What do you hope the readers take away from our heroine, Nicole?


Nicole is very driven by her sense of loyalty—to her family, to her friends, and now to doing everything she can to make sure humanity isn’t destroyed by the Titans. But at the same time, she wants to save everyone, and unfortunately that isn’t always possible, which is something that is tested for her in Elementals 2: The Blood of the Hydra.


  1. Out of any of your characters, who would most likely be your best friend in real life, and why?


Probably Kate, because she loves reading and learning J


  1. Out of any of your characters, who would you want to date, and why?


Honestly, neither of the two main male characters in Elementals are “my type.” They’re both very “in the moment,” action-oriented, sword-wielding guys, and I tend to be interested in people who are more theoretical, creative, out of the box thinkers. (Basically, these are two guys fighting on the front lines. I would be more likely to be interested in a guy working on behind the scenes intelligence.) I would probably like a male version of Kate J


  1. What was your most anticipated book release of 2016?


Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare and The Crown by Kiera Cass.

Thanks, Michelle!
