Hi guys! I’m really excited about being a part of the cover reveal for Brigid Kemmerer’s Secret, the fourth book in The Elemental Series. Without further ado: the cover of Secret!
So it’s a different style from the previous US covers, but it still fits in with them well. I think it’s a bit more of a generic YA cover – the covers of the first three novels (and novellas) stood out for me because of the lack of a girl in them, if that makes sense. It also, weirdly enough, reminds me a little of the Lux covers. I feel that they evoke a similar atmosphere, although it is refreshing to not see a girl draping herself all over the boy.
I wonder what Allen & Unwin will come up with for the Australian cover!
And here’s the official synopsis of Secret:
Nowhere is safe. Not even home…
Nick Merrick is stretched to the breaking point.
Keep his grades sky-high or he’ll never escape his hometown.
Keep his brother’s business going or the Merricks will be out on the street.
Keep the secret of where he’s going in the evenings from his own twin—or he’ll lose his family.
Keep his mind off the hot, self-assured dancer who’s supposed to be his “girlfriend’s” partner.
Of course there’s also the homicidal freak Quinn has taken to hanging around, and the Elemental Guide counting the hours until he can try again to kill the Merrick brothers. There’s a storm coming. From all sides. And then some.
Nick Merrick, can you keep it together?

Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys, all the ones she doesn’t want. Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.
And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.
Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all.
The storm is coming.
