Review: A Fall of Water by Elizabeth Hunter

fall-of-waterReviewed by Jen

I have really enjoyed the Elemental Mysteries series –and this final installment completely satisfied. I’ve read some reviews that liken these books to a more grown-up Twilight, and in some intangible way, I can see the comparison. There is something about the tone… the need these two characters have for each other that’s similar. How this immortal man’s life changes utterly in loving this human woman and how she becomes even greater as she joins his world. There are other parallels, too, with vampire families and dangerous, political ancients. But this is very much its own story. And Beatrice is such a force as a heroine, no one could ever mistake her for an awkward teenager. [Read more…]

Review: The Force of Wind by Elizabeth Hunter

force-of-windReviewed by Jen

I have to say this is the strongest book in the Elemental Mysteries book so far. So much happens here. So much that we have been building toward! This feels like the culmination of a giant build that basically explodes off the page. That being said, don’t jump in the series with this installment. You definitely want to start at the beginning.

Review: This Same Earth by Elizabeth Hunter

this-same-earthReviewed by Jen

I had a very difficult time at the beginning of this book. By that, I mean that I wanted to throw my e-reader against the wall and perhaps drop an anvil on top of the hero’s head. And if you read the first book in this series, and if you rooted for B and Gio in any way, shape, or form, you will feel the same way. Halfway through the book, I was still mad. I wasn’t sure I was going to get past it. Eventually… begrudgingly… I did, but I’m still a little resentful about all of the angst. [Read more…]

Review: A Hidden Fire by Elizabeth Hunter

hidden-fireReviewed by Jen

One of my great book buddies has been on me for ages to read this series. I don’t know what took me so long to take her advice. It’s so easy these days for vampire romance novels to be campy, silly, or unbelievable on an emotional level. But this book was none of those things. I cared about the main characters. I was interested in the supporting cast. And I was invested in what happened. [Read more…]

Review: Desert Bound by Elizabeth Hunter

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000032_00049]Reviewed by Shelly

This is another new to me author whose writing that I totally enjoyed. This is the second in Elizabeth Hunter’s series, Cambrio Springs. Set in a small town, Cambrio Springs’ history goes back generations; the mystery of the resident shape shifters is steeped in the mysterious spring water that the town’s ancestors drank. From snakes, birds, wolves, lions to bears and everything in between, there are a lot of shape shifters and they all have their place in the town’s structure. I liked this community. They’re tightly knit, loyal, fun and some of them are plain ole Neanderthals, but likable nonetheless. [Read more…]
