Beatrice De Novo thought she had left the supernatural world behind…for the most part. But when the past becomes the present, will she leave her quiet life in Los Angeles to follow a mystery she thought had abandoned her? Where has Giovanni Vecchio been, and why has he returned? Giovanni has his own questions, and he’s looking to her for answers.
The sequel to A Hidden Fire will reunite Beatrice and Giovanni to continue their search through the past while both wrestle with the future. When the world as you knew it has changed forever, is there any way you can turn back?
This Same Earth is the second book in the Elemental Mysteries series. It is a paranormal romance/mystery for adult readers.
Like the first in this series, I found this book to be surprisingly enjoyable. Here I also noticed a few typos and grammatical errors, but not so much as to be annoying.
My favorite aspect of this book is the way Hunter has developed these characters and their relationships. They respond to each other and their circumstances in realistic ways. Despite the paranormal aspect, it all feels so natural.
Unlike A Hidden Fire, This Same Earth didn’t contain too many surprises for me. Maybe having just finished the first book, I expected the plot to turn in certain directions – and it did. That being said, this was a well paced, fun read, and I’ll be moving on to the next book in the series, The Force of Wind.
