Publisher's Summary

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.

This Same Earth reunites 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?

    "Vocal Performance Inconsistent with Story"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I enjoy the series, but I couldn't listen to the audio. It was ruining the characters for me.


    What didn’t you like about Dina Pearlman’s performance?

    Really disappointing casting. The characters are 28 but the vocals don't match; there is a twinge of NJ + valley girl that is inconsistent with a reclusive, CA librarian. Gio should be sexy, not disgruntled old man. I felt like the vocal performer really disliked the characters and wanted to portray that.

    I was really disappointed and stopped listening in chapter 2 to just read the book on my kindle and infuse age appropriate, non-loathing tones.


    What character would you cut from This Same Earth?

    NA

    Story
    "Hunter delivers again."
    Any additional comments?

    Mysterious and intriguing, Hunter continues to wow in this book, giving us a strong heroine with her own mind, own faults, and own agenda. Picking up some five years after the events of A Hidden Fire, the scintillating librarian has rebuilt her life in Southern California after Gio's presence becomes by mere proxy. Though she continues friendships with others she's met during her experience in World V, she grows frustrated with Gio's absence. When he finally does walk back into her life, her stewing erupts into a full-on boiling mess. As Gio and B work to come together again as couple, Lorenzo's maleficent deeds tug around the edges of their circle of friends, bringing with it both death, and a determination for justice. Meanwhile, Gio makes it clear to Beatrice that he's interested in her for the long haul, that he wants her to be with him forever. A host of new characters and revisits by others add elegance and intrigue, culminating with Beatrice's emergence as a Damsel that can cause others some serious distress. A fantastic series for anyone who wants their mystery and mythic creatures cut with a slice of passion and romance.

    "Aargh! Worst narrator ever!"

    Love these stories. Smart heroine. Sexy hero. Fascinating characters. Ruined by terrible narration. So frustrating!

    "Give up on the accents. Please."

    This narrator is okay, but the accents are pretty bad. So is the maniacal laugh. Just...don't.

    Story
    "What can I say, I listened to it in one day"

    Giovanni has been absent from Beatrice's life for 5 years. That's hard to cope with, when he returns professing his love and introducing her to his new son at the same time. Bea has tried to move on, reluctant to trust him again, when she learns he's been protecting her all these years. Bea's life is still in danger as Lorenzo has yet to reappear, and her Father is still missing. The mystery only grows in this installment, as the duo are out to find her Father, along with trying to protect the people they love from the villainous Lorenzo.

    Story
    "Fun story, interesting twists, but..."

    The main character is bright, well developed, and holds her own throughout. I really enjoyed her intelligence, cleverness, and strength. Premise and characters are the most important things in any series, so I recommend this one to those who enjoy a little history in their paranormal romance adventures. I enjoyed this series very much for what it is, but there are some annoyances with the writing and audio performance though the story is good enough that it managed to pull me in.
    My problem with the writing was the author's need for a thesaurus so that, for example, a word like "face" doesn't show up a half dozen times in a single descriptive paragraph (ironic, when your lead character is a librarian, no?)
    My biggest issue was the narrator's mispronunciations! These were, at least, consistent so once I got done seething over a newly mangled term I had to go back to listening, because in spite of everything, I really wanted to know what happened next! Steppes are not steppies, signor does not have a hard g, and the name of that wonderful Scotch, Laphroaig, does not sound like L'Afro-Igg. As long as you can grit your teeth and glaze over this type of issue (these 3 terms were the biggest offenders for me)
    If you enjoy Patricia Briggs or Ilona Andrews I can say that Elizabeth Hunter deserves a look, we readers can always hope that the editing gets tighter in future works.

    "Not all the voices are bad but..."

    The narrator can be good, but then at times really bad in her choices of voices.

    "too short."

    this one was too short not enough storyline in it to be a real book. it's more of a filler to the story. I'm not moving on.
