Editorial Reviews

Review

"Darker, grittier, bittersweet and in a way heartbreaking. B is an unstoppable force, and the chase for the ancient immortality elixir is gaining momentum. This time you either win or die. [Hunter's] best book so far. I can not wait for the next one!" 
--Nocturnal Book Reviews

"I have said it before and I am so happy to be saying it again I LOVE THIS SERIES!!! At the end of last year when I made my Best of 2011 list, A Hidden Fire was on it. I have  no doubt that at the end of this year Elizabeth Hunter will be there again.  ...The Force of Wind is just that, a force. I felt every emotion in this installment." 
--Bending the Spine Book Blog

I should start by saying I purchased the first 2 books in this series A Hidden Fire: Elemental Mysteries Book 1 and This Same Earth: Elemental Mysteries Book 2 with no real expectations other than it looked mildly interesting. I could not have been more shocked to find myself pulled into a continuing story of which The Force of Wind: Elemental Mysteries Book 3 is the 3rd installment of what is to be 4 books (One for each element Fire, Earth, Air and Water for book 4). So what I write here can be applied to the story as a whole because it is difficult to separate the parts from the whole. It is rare that a self published author writes a novel that can pull me into an emotional bond with the story and its characters. Starting with A Hidden Fire and through This Same Earth and now The Force of Wind I have been captured by the story of Gio and B. The simple romance with a bit of mystery thrown in that was the start of this journey has now come to a point where you are pulled though the characters growth and tragedy. Along with a cast of characters that is so memorable that you don't need a listing to keep up with them, you learn in pieces the history of these people and you start to be emotionally bonded to them (as any great book should do). The Force of Wind has the most character growth, the most action and the most heartbreak and tragedy which is a step up from the usually PNR type books. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent . . . . again! March 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Holy cats! There doesn't seem to be any stopping Elizabeth Hunter. The Force of Wind, the third installment of her Elemental Mysteries series is a force to be reckoned with. Honestly I feel like this book snuck up on me and slapped me. Are you kidding?

The Force of Wind is a sort of slow burn that opens in China and remains there for almost the entirety of the novel. Giovanni and Beatrice find themselves welcomed to Mount Penglai, the super-secret home of the council of Elders, the Immortal world's version of the Supreme Court. Here's the skinny: Gio and B have finally discovered the location of the illusive manuscript they have been hunting throughout the series; the evil-as-Satan-himself Lorenzo has shown up to petition the Elders of the court for possession of said book and Stephen de Novo; B is becoming a serious bad ass and a vampire; and Tenzin is offering up personal information about her background and she has a mate. What?? Tenzin has a mate? Stephen de Novo is alive and well? Lorenzo is playing nice and bowing to the will of the Elders? For those who have followed this series from the beginning these are some of the questions that have been lingering and are finally answered. Believe me the long-awaited answers to these questions are quite satisfying and somewhat unexpected.

The pace and progress of this novel is truly like a slow burn with plenty of information being offered up but very little big action until the very end. While this may seem dull to some readers, followers of the series will find it quite informative, interesting, and above all intriguing as the information creates a whole list of new questions that . . . . are not answered in this novel. Damn you, Elizabeth Hunter - you're an evil genius!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough to purchase the rest December 8, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Reviewing the entire series since I read one book after the other in only a few days.
The writing was sound. The concept original. I bought the full series, simply because the series was dragged out over many books, which kuddos to the author for the business savvy mindset.
The chemistry between the characters built nicely in the first and second book but when it hit a plateau it honestly had no where left to go and that was disappointing. After the first book, where you are left hanging with their relationship or lack thereof, it made you purchase the second book to know more.

What I didn't like about the characters were that they were from all over the world and yet the author didn't take the time to incorporate their background/heritage/slang and speech into the dialogue. There was so much time spent on the little details about how to preserve books and ancient philosophy and alchemy that I think the author should have taken the time to incorporate the same details into the characters. Nothing would have made me squeal more than a giant redheaded Scottish vampire priest wearing Hawaiian shirts, watching pro wrestling, while spitting Scottish lingo. Saying LASS here and there wasn't doing it for me (that is why I didn't buy the next set of books because his character went bland mid-way through the 3rd book and I was no longer rooting for him).

There was no sex in the first book, to speak of, but once they started hitting the sheets, every other chapters had sex in it and it wasn't that great of sex. It honestly distracted from the characters because there was NO intimacy, it was just raw sex. I like hardcore sex like the next housewife, but these weren't just random hookups where you would throw it in her, slam into her like a jackhammer, then leave.
