--The Book Chick
Elemental Mysteries turned into one of the best paranormal series I've read this year. It's sharp, elegant, clever, evenly paced without dragging its feet and at the same time emotionally intense.
--Nocturnal Book Reviews
This Same Earth is exactly what I have come to expect from the brilliant Elizabeth Hunter - fierce, sexy, and mysterious.
Ms. Hunter's storytelling and weaving is once again flawless. A series I can re-read as much as I want to and I won't get bored of it.
I'll start by saying that I really like this series and I really, really, loved this book! I thoroughly enjoyed A Hidden Fire, but This Same Earth left me panting for more.
I absolutely loved, LOVED the second installment in the Elemental Mysteries series! I didn't think it would top the first but it did.
Solid 5 star read, and I'm off to read book three and know I will be in for another all nighter! If you are a "smart" reader you need to go grab the first two books in this wonderful series.

However, once they get back together, the story starts to move forward and we learn a lot more about Gio, his past, vampire politics, and the big story, which is the mystery behind Gio’s missing books, and one in particular. Why is it so important? What secrets does it hold?
There’s also the mystery of Beatrice’s father’s disappearance, and how he’s involved with Gio’s book.
Essentially this is a chase encompassing different countries, vampire courts and romance. And a good set up for book 3.
The writing style isn’t bad, and the characters start out with promise, but there they remain. Relationships are stated, but there’s no development and no depth or growth. The female lead rapidly becomes incredibly annoying — self-absorbed, rash and sophomoric is not ‘independent’, and petulant snark is not witty repartee. The male is an attractive, ancient, utterly clueless alpha type with equally juvenile relationship skills. The author seems stuck in a 15 year old’s idea of emotions and relationships. The villain is an over the top cardboard cutout who pops back up like a bobo doll, and the plotting has too much contrivance or willful blindness by the protagonists to be intriguing.
Just not a fun or compelling read for me.
You also get more information on Elizabeth Hunter's vampire world dynamics. How different clans work and how alliances are made. It makes for some very interesting reading.
She does spin a tale worth reading, and reads so well and effortlessly. Again, just the way it was written you could just imagine being part of the story. I'm looking forward to reading the next book. I highly recommend this series.

After five years of having no contact with B, Gio finally comes back into her live. I think Gio was expecting B to welcome him with open arms, but instead he gets a slap in the face (ha, pat on the back for B). I didn't think it was possible but I love B even more in this book, she’s smarter, feistier and doesn’t fall all over herself to get back with Gio (although I really wanted her too, but I was happy she stood her ground with him).
Gio has changed a bit too – after realizing it was a stupid idea to ignore B for five years, he starts doing things to get her attention in the hopes that he'll wear her down into taking him back – it’s so cute…he fights for her, and that makes me love this Gio, so much more!
My favourite thing about the book is that you get to see a deeper side to Carwyn, when Gio and B visit him and his family – he’s not just a wise-cracking wrestling lover, he’s also a dad…
I honestly love this series, Hunter has such a different take on the paranormal genre.
BUT!!! The constant smirking, snickering and snorting that accompanies almost every conversation between Gio and B made it seem at times like I was reading a chapter in My Little Pony. It was sooooo irritating! It really let down an otherwise very well crafted and written story. Hunter has an excellent imagination regarding story telling but seemingly a limited knowledge of suitable verbs. So I have to knock marks off for clunky dialogue.
But I have ordered the next book so I'm willing to give Hunter another chance :) !
