The Force of Wind by Elizabeth Hunter


How far would you go to protect the ones you love?

What would you sacrifice to kill the one you hate?

Join Giovanni Vecchio and Beatrice De Novo as they travel to a hidden island on the far edge of China to seek the help of an ancient immortal court. Can they weave their way through the tangled web of centuries-old alliances and ruthless feuds to find what they’ve been looking for? Friends will be revealed, enemies will find them, and a dangerous secret will come to light.

The third book in the Elemental Mysteries series will see Giovanni and Beatrice joined by a group of unlikely allies as they explore the history and myth of the far East. Many have been stolen, but only one holds the key.


The Force of Wind by Elizabeth Hunter
5 out of 5

This is one big story of change.  Change from human to vampire; change of parent to sire; change of relationships. All of which helps lead up to the biggest mystery:  What is this book and what makes it so important?

I liked how we got to meet some really old vampires (like some of the oldest ones around).  Plus, we get to travel to an island off the coast of Asia. 

I like how we got to know Tenzin better.  Her past (which was both heart breaking and strengthening) and all the way to her present with her mate was very enlightening.  It was awesome to understand her and what made her who she was/is.

We FINALLY get to meet Stephan De Novo, the mysterious character that seems to be the driving force of this novel.  We want to know what he knows, what he is protecting, and why he is hiding away from Lorenzo.  Plus, we get other surprises from him as we go along. 

Again, there is definitely something about Beatrice and Giovanni.  They love each other, but their arguments are major and earth shaking (figuratively only).  Sometimes you wonder if they will survive as a couple with some of their arguments. 

Overall, this is a great book.  Heartbreaking, but great.  Highly recommend and I’m looking forward to reading some more from this series.  

Happy Reading!
