Publisher's Summary

The finale of the best-selling Elemental Mysteries series, A Fall of Water.

"No secret stays hidden forever."

Still grieving from their loss in the far East, Giovanni Vecchio and Beatrice De Novo discover that for them, all roads really do lead to Rome. But nothing is quite as it seems in the Eternal City. Joined by Carwyn and Tenzin, unexpected clashes greet them almost immediately, and rivalries churn beneath the glittering facade of the old Roman court. They quickly realize that allies might be enemies, and ancient rivals could hold the key to a deadly secret.

Giovanni and Beatrice will be forced to call on old alliances, ancient powers, and fierce cunning to survive for the eternity they both desire. Sometimes, finding the end means going back to the beginning. Fire, Earth, Wind, and Water finally meet with devastating results in the conclusion of the Elemental Mysteries.

The Mystery comes to a close

After losing her father and becoming a vampire, this story has a slow start with Beatrice adjusting to her new existence. It does get better though, when Gio gets a summons to go to Rome. All heck breaks loose when Lorenzo makes another appearance and the ultimate evil step mother joins the story. Gio and Beatrice's love story grows stronger and stronger, as all the allies from previous books and some new ones join forces to put an end to mystery of the secret formula, that could kill them all.

Fun series, interesting twists,but...

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.

Genial!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Fall of Water to be better than the print version?

Whereas to hear a story, we experience the emotions of each character through the narrator's voice, I would say yes, the áudio edition is much better than the print version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Fall of Water?

The battle on Livia's castle is terribly exciting.

What does Dina Pearlman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As I said, heard a story allows the listener experience the emotions of each character through has to narrator's voice. And, in my opinion, Dina Pearlman was extremely competent when narrating this book

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, I laughed a lot, and there were times when I was sad too, because when the life s
