This Same Earth is the second book in the Elementals series written by Elizabeth Hunter. This book continues the story of enigmatic heroine Beatrice De Novo and dashing, charming and blood-sucking hero Giovanni Vecchio. This fast-paced continuation of their story will have your heart fluttering, your pulse racing and your blood pumping (no pun intended).
I loved This Same Earth just as much as I loved A Hidden Fire, and maybe even more. It may possibly be because I became familiar with Elizabeth Hunter's characters and writing, or it may be because it's just a really, really good book. I'll let you decide. (And don't let my opinion influence you...even though it was really, really good.)
I finished This Same Earth last night (well, it was technically this morning) and I have such a book hangover it's not even funny. I keep thinking back to the last few occurrences of the book and thinking, "B and Gio NEED me to continue reading, how can I go on without finishing their story?" Well, somehow I've done it and moved on, but in no way is that stopping me from picking up book three and going back to where I left them hanging.
I don't know what it is, I am hopelessly addicted to these books! I love every single thing about them. Even the "couple banters" that occur between B and Gio warm my heart (unlike some other romance-y stories that I read that make me want to gag).
Now, admission time. I am a huge fan of vampire fiction, vampire romance and the like. I read everything, but vampire fiction is just so much fun. It does get tiring after a while...but the Elementals series is an exception. I could read twenty of Elizabeth Hunter's books and never get tired of them.
