Review: A Stone Kissed Sea

Book Review: A Stone Kissed Sea, by Elizabeth Hunter

✩✩

An immortal wanderer. A brilliant scientist. A centuries-old menace written in blood.
Lucien Thrax, son of the earth and child of the ancients, is a healer of immense power. But years of work on a deadly vampire virus have not led to a cure, nor have they softened the wall he built around his heart. When he’s forced to work with Doctor Makeda Abel, Lucien is convinced he’s reached his limit of patience with humanity.
Makeda Abel may be human, but she’s far from impressed with the brooding vampire healer, even if his mind draws her reluctant admiration. She’s learned how to survive in the immortal world, and it’s not by being afraid. Working together may lead them to answers, but it also pushes Lucien and Makeda’s attraction to the boiling point.
When nightmares become reality, Makeda will have to trust Lucien with her life. Finding answers has never been more vital. Finding love has never been more deadly. To heal the Elemental World, Lucien and Makeda must follow ancient paths and ask for help from the most inhuman of immortals. Because even with a cure in hand, the battle has only begun.
A Stone-Kissed Sea is the fourth novel in the Elemental World series.

Genre: paranormal romance

Publishing date: December 2016

Mature content: yes

Review:  A Stone Kissed Sea is the much awaited book four in the Elemental World series by Elizabeth Hunter, and it is clearly my favorite of them all. Even though I still cherish A Hidden Fire dearly and regularly come back to read Beatrice and Giovanni's story, I loved Makeda and Lucien in this one. Lucien was a very interesting surprise, because he turned out much better than I expected from reading the previous books, and Makeda was just amazing. They were perfect for each other in a way totally their own. 

Besides the romantic part of the book, everything else is exceptionally well written, from the side plots to the action scenes to the mere descriptions of far away places. It's one hundred per cent engaging, hilarious in some places, dramatic in others, but it will never leave you indifferent. 

Elizabeth Hunter builds a magical word where you can lose yourself in, even if you are not usually a fan of paranormal or vampire novels. This book can be read stand-alone, though I would certainly recommend you to read the previous ones, just because they should also not be missed. 


It's a wonderful, wonderful book, and I totally recommend it!

Happy holidays!
