Blog Tour: A Fall of Water by Elizabeth Hunter {Review}

Title: A Fall of Water

Author: Elizabeth Hunter

Source: eARC for Blog Tour

“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.
My take...
Here I am sitting her staring at my computer…not knowing where to go with this review or what to write. I am blown away by this series and anything I write will not do this book (or series) any justice. Who would have thought one little email back in Oct 2011 asking me to review a book would begin my love affair for these wonderful, beautiful characters. Characters that took up residence in my heart and mind…characters that lingered on for days after finishing each book of the series. There is no way I can translate how wonderful Elizabeth Hunter’s books are or how awesome she is as a person. You will just have to take my word for it and read her work.
My heart broke with the final installment of the series, A Fall of Water. I do believe it was one of the more emotional stories of the entire series and I was sad, so sad, to see it end. At one point I thought I was going to sever any and all ties to Mrs. Hunter. She knows how much I adore Gio…and if anything were to happen to him…I would no longer consider her a friend. ;)
But seriously…A Fall of Water was absolutely amazing and heart wrenching all rolled into one. Several times I caught myself tearing up (one time full blown bawling) at the scenes Hunter threw at me. And sometimes I would squeak out a laugh at the hilarious banter between Carwyn, Beatrice, and Gio. Gosh I love that trio!!
And the ending!!! Don’t get me started on that ending. It was brilliant…it was gripping…it was beautiful…it was perfect. And the epilogue could only mean one thing…spin off!! Or at least in my mind that’s what it means. So to you Mrs. Hunter I say Bring It!
In a final note I leave you with this…this series is truly a marvelous one. You get action, mystery, suspense, and lots of hot, sexy romance. The characters become your family and the stories remain with you long after they are done. Thank you Nichole Chase for sending Elizabeth my way and thank you Elizabeth for allowing me to review your work; I look forward to reading more of your books in the future.
