How far would you go to protect the ones you love?
What would you sacrifice to kill the one you hate?
Join Giovanni Vecchio and Beatrice De Novo as they travel to a hidden island on the far edge of China to seek the help of an ancient immortal court. Can they weave their way through the tangled web of centuries-old alliances and ruthless feuds to find what they’ve been looking for? Friends will be revealed, enemies will find them, and a dangerous secret will come to light.
The third book in the Elemental Mysteries series will see Giovanni and Beatrice joined by a group of unlikely allies as they explore the history and myth of the far East. Many have been stolen, but only one holds the key.
The Force of Wind is the third book in the four-part Elemental Mysteries series. It is the sequel to This Same Earth and is a paranormal mystery/romance for adult readers.
Just like the first two books in this series, this was an entertaining, quick, easy read.
The characters continue to develop nicely, as some that were previously more secondary become more prominent. Lorenzo, our antagonist, is evolving as well, and we begin to learn more about his motives. Meanwhile, the romance between Beatrice and Giovanni is enduring and solid while they each maintain their respective opinions.
Each book so far has its own tone and quality, but they all fit together to form the overall story arc like pieces of a puzzle. I’m assuming this is intentional to align each story to its title element. At this point, I have a feeling I’m going to rate the series as a whole higher than any individual book.
