“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 power, 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.
A Fall of Water is the last book to Elizabeth Hunter’s Elemental Mysteries series. I was bummed to see Gio and B go, but happy to see their ending and excited for more on Hunter’s Elemental world.
That said, A Fall of Water was basically the falling action and resolution to the mystery itself. We finally learn the epic details of the mystery and who the major players are. We also learn more about vampire politics and vampire history. The history was a nice touch and I would love to see more about that aspect. I am almost about to buy the other books just so I can see what else Hunter has.
Almost. And only because I have other books I need to go through first. I would be stuck in her books for a while if I kept this up.
Anyway, A Fall of Water was a nice mix of action and quiet moments. That isn’t to say the quiet moments were strictly quiet. They were filled with the information that made the world even more interesting. Like I said before, I was bummed to see the end, but I love what Elizabeth Hunter does.
Gio and B are just a great couple. They really grow in their relationship in this book and the depth of their love is there. I find this couple much better than a certain other vampire couple (sure that other one is YA, but you don’t have to be creepy to be protective. Just saying). They are strong, loving, and continue to grow with the events that come up.
Yeah… I’m bummed to leave their story.
BUT, there is that nice last scene . . . past the ending . . . set five years later . . . and has a hint about BEN! I’ll be reading those books. Right now, I’m reading the short novellas.
