    One thought on “A Fall of Water”

    1. What an amazing ending to Gio & Beatrice’s story.And what an incredible series!!!What more can I say???It was…I am totally hooked on this series and it’s one of those that I will read over and over again.And what a bonus… get a bit more about some of the characters I have come to like so much – can’t wait to get onto the Elemental World next.This is one author’s books that I will be definitely be reading in the future.

    2. I was very lucky to receive an ARC of this book, but I put off reading it for a few days. If I didn't start it, it wouldn't have to end. But I did start it and it did end. Though the journey was breathtaking.Filled with the perfect blend of humor, action and emotion, A Fall of Water brought an extraordinary series to a beautiful end. From the first page I was glued to the story, only stopping when I absolutely had to. The cast of characters we know and love were as strongly written and developed [...]

    3. Ok. So I love, love, love this series. Going into it, I really didn't know what it was about. I stumbled upon the first novel as a free download on the Kindle and hey, free is free. I have read a lot of vampire/human paranormal romance so I wasn't expecting too much. However, I was quickly drawn into story and didn't look back. It is exactly what I wanted Twilight to be (Sorry Stephanie). Don't get me wrong. I still love Twilight as a guilty pleasure, but this is a much more grown up version whi [...]

    4. 4.25 starsVery good ending to a series! The flashbacks are done well, but used frequently. It tampered with my reading rhythm. There's plenty character growth from book one to book four. The action sequences were fiendishly good. Their Elemental powers were on full display. The good guys entered on cue, yet not always on time. Other characters have stories I hope will be told, such as Tenzin, Ben, Deidre, etc. I am glad I skipped this book to read Carwyn's, as this book would have been spoilery [...]

    5. It’s over *sniff*, I can’t believe it’s over! But OMG, what a sensational ride! There are twists, turns, and shocks along the way, and after four books, everything is wrapped up beautifully! It’s AWESOME!I loved the way this story unfolded. Like the other books in the series, it merges fantastically from the horrific events immediately ending the last book of the series (and the emotion is still right there!), into the next stage of the journey - this time in Rome, as Gio and Beatrice co [...]

    6. With a brief time out to allow Beatrice 'B' DeNovo to adapt to changes brought about by the events in The Force of the Wind, B and her vampire husband Giovanni Vecchio are hot on the trail of the vampire who was helping her father as their hunt leads them to Rome and the domain of Gio's 'stepmother' - and they are at last close to discovering the truth behind the secret that could change the vampire world foreverWhile there are some great action packed moments, and while it was great to finally [...]

    7. This book was an excellent end to Giovanni and Beatrice's story. I loved this series for its fresh take on the vampire trope and for the entire cast of unique and loveable characters. I will definitely re-read the whole series one day!

    8. Read 23rd July 2013Reread 28th May 2015The last and final installment of Beatrice and Gio was the best one of the series but sadly also the end. I would give this at least 7 Stars well if it is an option anyway. So 7 “A Fall of Water Stars” Spoiler alarm.Gio and the family are back in Los Angeles that is until they get a summons from Italy, Livia is stepmother has the whole weird Greek thing going on there. They still haven’t had any news on the elixir of life or Lorenzo. But they keep the [...]

    9. I have really enjoyed the Elemental Mysteries series –and this final installment completely satisfied. I’ve read some reviews that liken these books to a more grown-up Twilight, and in some intangible way, I can see the comparison. There is something about the tone… the need these two characters have for each other that’s similar. How this immortal man’s life changes utterly in loving this human woman and how she becomes even greater as she joins his world. There are other parallels, t [...]

    10. AND ALL GREAT THINGS MUST COME TO AN END**SIGH**The fourth and final installment in the Elemental Mysteries series has ended, finished, wrapped up, completed.And I'm mourning the loss of Gio and B.This series was fantastic! it had everything a great PR series is made of: Love, mystery, suspense, angst, fabulous characters and the best story! A Fall of Water begins with B adjusting to finally turning. She has to conquer bloodlust, cravings, being over sensitive to all stimuli ande loss of her hum [...]

    11. My Beatrice and Giovanni:Great and exciting conclusion to this paranormal series! I enjoyed Beatrice's and Giovanni's journey a lot and they will be missed!MORE REVIEWS ON MY BLOGReading Is My Breathing

    12. ★★★★★★★★ 3 1/2 Battle-Weary Stars ★★★★★★★★“No secret stays hidden forever.”If you've read my previous reviews of the Elemental Mystery Series, then you know that I've always had a hard time making up my mind with how I wanted to rate these books. The first novel, I gave 3 stars; 2nd-4; 3rd-4; but unfortunately for the final installment, I'm going to have to give it 3 1/2 stars! While this one was better than the first, I didn't think it was as good as the prev [...]

    13. A Fall of Water by Elizabeth HunterMy rating: 5 of 5 starsI have been quietly reading A Fall of Water that Elizabeth Hunter shared with me and kept me awake late last night to finish it and still has me thinking about it this morning. It is another 5 Star bittersweet ending to a series that far exceeded my expectations when I spent 99 cents to buy A Hidden Fire: Elemental Mysteries Book 1 and could not get my mouse out fast enough to 1-Click This Same Earth: Elemental Mysteries Book 2 and then h [...]

    14. This review applies to the entire series as well as for this book. 5 star readingetely satisfied.What can you say about a story that includes the hunt for an ancient manuscript, a 500 year old vampire, a treasure hunt, a spunky, kick-ass librarian, political intrigue and an enduring love story. Can you say fantastic? We get to travel to beautiful locations around the world from the US to Europe to Asia and exploring the powers of each of the elements: Fire, Earth, Wind, and Water. Beatrice and G [...]

    15. I've been praising Elizabeth's writing since I was introduced to her Elemental Mysteries series in 2011. If you look at my reviews of A Hidden Fire, This Same Earth and The Force of Wind you would see why I'm so enamoured with her work.First of all, she writes vampires like Anne Rice would have written them - cunning, cautious, extremely political, clever and very, very dangerous. They might act like spoiled children sometimes but there are always multiple layers and reasons to their motivation. [...]

    16. A Fall of Water is the final instalment of the Elemental Mysteries quartet by Elizabeth Hunter. This story was certainly an improvement over the last two and it definitely brings the Gio and B's story to a satisfying and appropriate end. Why only the three star rating? I guess this could have easily been a 3.5 or four star books for some but it's just a case of it's not you, it's meThe overall story arc leads a lot of the major players to Rome and culminates in a final battle that has been long [...]

    17. This is a such a bittersweet blog tour. Elizabeth Hunter's "Elemental Mysteries" series kicks butt like no other but this is the end of the line for books dominated by B and Gio. Book 4, "A Fall Of Water" is the highly anticipated final book in the series and Ms. Hunter does not disappoint. As much as I love this series, I didn't start reading "A Fall Of Water" the same day I received my ARC from Elizabeth Hunter. I would open it up in my eReader then I would close it. Finally, I sat down last w [...]

    18. 4 starsThis last book in the series was really, really good but it also dragged a bit for me. There are a lot more politics involved in this book, and a lot of what seems to be esoteric side-trips that don't always make sense until virtually the end of the book. I'm not complaining. As a whole, I'd give this series a 3.75-4 star rating.The characters stay true to themselves. The story and the mystery does unfold, albeit very slowly; this is the culmination book, though, so you have to go with it [...]

    21. 4.5 starsI finished reading this about ten minutes ago, I'm sure there is going to be TONS of typos when I'm done writing this post but I have to write this down now before I forget all these feels. I have so much love for this book right now it's simply indescribable!A Fall Of Water, is final installment of the Elemental Mysteries series. I have been sticking with this series from the very beginning and I am really glad that I stuck to it till the end. I still remember reading about Beatrice an [...]

    22. I can't believe it's over, no, no I can't. The emotional roller coaster I search for in every book came through with shuddering effect throughout this series - from elation, to abject fear, absolute sorrow, knuckle biting suspense, to sobs of "Why?! Why, oh why!" all the way to the sated peace that I've yet to find in so many other promising stories. I don't say this lightly, but the Elemental Mysteries is going to linger in my head for a very, very long time. This book in particular - I fell in [...]

    23. A superb conclusion to a 5 star series!A Fall of Water, the fourth and final book of Elizabeth Hunter’s Elemental Mysteries series starts off with the characters dealing with the aftermath of the events in The Force of Wind. After regrouping and some seclusion time for B, the team sets out to find the vampire supporting Lorenzo as well as Lorenzo himself. The conclusion to Beatrice & Gio’s story does not falter. The story never feels rushed or contrived as mysteries are solved, loose end [...]

    24. What can I say I haven't already said in my previous reviews regarding this series - it is one of the best I have ever read and one I WILL read again.In book four - the finale one in this series - Gio and B have to go through another set of dangerous problems , till they are finally able to solve the mystery. The reading, was as always, so engaging and captivating, that I had to pace myself to slow down, because I did not want to be done too soon.The enemies are getting more volatile, the friend [...]

    25. Wow, just wow. I enjoyed this series from beginning to end. I read these books back to back so all four books tend to be one blended story in my mind. All four books were great. Each one intense and emotional in so many ways. The author created an amazing world, included detailed flashbacks to provide important back story for the current events and all very well written. These books hooked me from the beginning and I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Gio and B. But, with the end of A Fall of Water, [...]

    26. Ms Hunter has done it again. This last book in the Elemental Mysteries series has everythingRomance, Action, Humor, Great Characters, HistoryWhat a wonderful read. Book 4 reunites us with Bea & Gio, who IMO are such a sweet, sexy couple. Just having the two of them on the page together is steamy be the fire/water combination. All of our favorite supporting characters are back: Carwyn, Tenzin, Ben, Dez & Matt. Some new characters have been added and I will admit to getting attached to mos [...]

    27. As the last book, it was a bit let down. I liked the series all right but it didn't wow me either while I kept hoping that each book will be better than the previous. But with the resemble of Twilight series, it was quite hard for me to love it. Not that I'm against Twilight, though I'm not a fan either. But I was wishing that it won't be that similar, as I was interested in Giovanni and Beatrice’s story.It was good it has its own story here, the resemble wasn't that prominent like in the firs [...]

    28. This is the finale of Elemental Mysteries. Is a good feeling whenever I read the last book of a fantastic series, where everything is going to wrap up nicely and I doesn't have to suffer the wait for another book. Yet, I also have this feeling of despair whereby I will no longer read about Giovanni Vecchio,the sexy Italian professor and vampire. I love him when he was all nerdy in Book 1 and then he turned into a total ass kicker as the series progress and I couldn't have love him more.I'm feeli [...]

    29. I have come to realize that no matter what, Elizabeth Hunter is not going to disappoint me, ever! A Fall of Water, the fourth and final novel in the Elemental Mysteries series is no exception to this rule. In this insanely good and completely satisfying novel all of the questions are finally answered.Once again, Hunter opens the novel by swiftly moving through a large chunk of time in a very expedient manner. B and Gio must spend the year separated from most of their family and friends as B lear [...]
