A Fall of Water by Elizabeth Hunter


“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 by Elizabeth Hunter
5 out of 5

In this AMAZING conclusion to the Elemental Mystery Series, we get a happy ending in a library (no, not that kind of happy ending!)… Which kind of reminds me of the beginning of the series, and I like that. 

Beatrice is amazing!  She showed strength, courage, and intelligence.  Though she is still mourning her father and is still adjusting to being a new vampire, she is still growing even more into a character that I can’t help but love.

Giovanni’s secrets are coming out.  So much so, that I began to wonder if we as a reader knew him at all in the first 3 books. There are a lot of flashbacks, which also give us a better idea about what made Giovanni who he is. 

I found it interesting about the 4 oldest vampires that were introduced.  These ancient vampires were the ones who were experimented on, but held onto these secrets.  I liked that we got to know their origins, what happened with the experiment, and why they were going to team up with Giovanni and Beatrice.

Personally, I loved the resolution to this series.  It was the happily-ever-after kind of ending, but it definitely gave a peace to the reader, as most of the problems had a resolution.  It was wonderful.

Overall, this is a great book from a great series.  Definitely looking forward to reading more by Ms. Hunter.  Highly recommend.  

Happy Reading!
