Beatrice and Gio are on a quest to find her Father, Steven and the book of alchemy. It takes them to China where both are in safekeeping, or so they think, when Lorenzo makes yet another appearance to destroy everyone's peace of mind. Beatrice is wanting to change to become a vampire, Gio wants her to wait, while other allies have their own ideas for her. Another interesting installment of the elemental world.
I appreciate the accents used, but pronunciation of the Italian is terrible.
Still love the series; this was my 3rd trip through it.
The main character is bright, well developed, and holds her own throughout. I really enjoyed her intelligence, cleverness, and strength. Premise and characters are the most important things in any series, so I recommend this one to those who enjoy a little history in their paranormal romance adventures. I enjoyed this series very much for what it is, but there are some annoyances with the writing and audio performance though the story is good enough that it managed to pull me in.
My problem with the writing was the author's need for a thesaurus so that, for example, a word like "face" doesn't show up a half dozen times in a single descriptive paragraph (ironic, when your lead character is a librarian, no?)
My biggest issue was the narrator's mispronunciations! These were, at least, consistent so once I got done seething over a newly mangled term I had to go back to listening, because in spite of everything, I really wanted to know what happened next! Steppes are not steppies, signor does not have a hard g, and the name of that wonderful Scotch, Laphroaig, does not sound like L'Afro-Igg. As long as you can grit your teeth and glaze over this type of issue (these 3 terms were the biggest offenders for me)
If you enjoy Patricia Briggs or Ilona Andrews I can say that Elizabeth Hunter deserves a look, we readers can always hope that the editing gets tighter in future works.
This just keeps getting better. This is a must read series. Buy this book and you will not be disappointed.
Intriguing, drama, good
Tensin because she's always ready for a fight!
Ms. Pearlman once again gives a fantastic performance!
