Title: A Hidden Fire
By: Elizabeth Hunter
Series: Elemental Mysteries #1

BookWhisperer Rating:

"No secret stays hidden forever."

A phone call from an old friend sets Dr. Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mystery he'd abandoned years before. He never expected a young librarian could hold the key to the search, nor could he have expected the danger she would attract. Now he and Beatrice De Novo will follow a twisted maze that leads from the archives of a university library, through the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a confrontation they never could have predicted.
A Hidden Fire is a paranormal mystery/romance for adult readers. It is the first book in the Elemental Mysteries Series.

Thoughts of The BookWhisperer

First lets just take a moment to analyze this cover, shall we???? There is absolutely no way to go wrong with a half naked man such as this, and a glimpse of such a beautiful library. I mean really we are readers for god's sake this is a instant love cover.  Secondly, let's talk about our the experience of this novel, and our the bitter sweet journey takes me back to my first days with Jeaniene Frost. It is like meeting Cat and Bones all over again, and it is such sweet nostalgia. Although, it is a whole new series that it is very different from that of Cat and Bones, but the underlying experience of falling in love with this man that is bigger than life and older than dirt, but still rocking it is such a sweet memory. Gio and B are amazingly complex character, and there is not one single thing that could have detoured my crazy fascination with them, and the constant flow of explicit language every time Gio pushes her way. Not only do I feel and overwhelming love for these two, but I am so quite fond of the whole lot of characters that bond throughout this story. The magically quality to their species was yet another light comparison to the Frost stories, and I found it to be just as intriguing this time around. It is obvious this series is just starting to build the adventure that will take many novels to orchestrate the depth and magnitude of  Hunter's vision. She is not an author, but a storyteller that can transport you to new worlds of her own creation. I can not wait for more of this series, and the Scibe series that I just recently finished that also introduced me to another amazing world of magic and romance.
