Paranormal Fantasy Early Review: The Scribe by Elizabeth Hunter

The Scribe by Elizabeth Hunter (Irin Chronicles #1)

review request from the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
Hidden at the crossroads of the world, an ancient race battles to protect humanity, even as it dies from within.

Ava Matheson came to Istanbul looking for answers, but others came looking for her. A reckless warrior guards her steps, but will Malachi’s own past blind him to the truth of who Ava might be? While ancient forces gather around them, both Ava and Malachi search for answers.

Whispering voices. Deadly touch. Their passion should be impossible... or it could be the only thing that will keep them alive.

THE SCRIBE is the first book in the Irin Chronicles, the new paranormal romance series from Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Elemental Mysteries.

Release date: October 15th 2013.

Amazon  US/UK | Amazon kindle US($4.99)/UK(£3.36) | The Book Depository US/UK | Fishpond

This book doesn't read as a separate story, it reads as a beginning of something wonderful, and the ending especially confirms that impression.

The plot is woven around Istanbul and Cappadocia and stays atmospheric throughout. The middle part of the book feels a bit slow like there is not much happening, but the beginning and the end truly make up for it. All I can say, - prepare for the shock.

Ava is charismatic and unpredictable. You think she'd act one way but she turns around and suddenly gives in and becomes reasonable or simply says no. She also rises more questions by her unexplained existence than provides answers. Malachi falls under the category of a tall, dark and handsome, and also incredibly noble and brave warrior, but I actually loved the whole band of Irin – Malachi, Rhys, Leo, Max, and of course Damien. They had character.

Then there are angels. Holy cow, peeps! I really want to know more about them. They are enigmatic, awe-inspiring and untouchable. It felt like they had their own agenda, and we couldn't even start to guess what it was.

All in all, despite being unsure about the middle part of the story, I'm in love with this new series from Elizabeth Hunter and can only predict that few books in it will rock my world. Cheers to that, peeps!

Я только что дочитала первую книгу новой серии от Элизабет Хантер, и... ни фига себе, мои хорошие!

Несмотря на то, что середина книги читается медленно и там мало, что происходит, в Писаря влюбляешься с первой главы, и его концовка оставляет читателя в шоке. Писарь сам по себе читается не как отдельная книга, а как введение в новый мир, который разорвёт вам мозг на несколько книг вперёд.

Само действие происходит в Стамбуле и Кападохии, и чувствуется, что автору, которая посетила эти места всего лишь несколько месяцев назад удалось точно захватить живописную атмосферу региона.

Главная героиня, Ава - тёмная лошадка. Её прошлое — это загадка, вызывающая кучу вопросов; её реакции непредсказуемы. С другой стороны, главный герой — Малачи, это типичный высокий, тёмный и таинственный незнакомец, а также храбрый и гордый воин Ирин. Мне кстати вся банда Ирин понравилась в этой книге — и Малачи и Рхис, Дэмьен, Лео и Максим.

Кроме них готовьтесь к Григори — антитезису Ирин и к падшим ангелам. Сразу скажу, что последние выписаны по высшему пилотажу. Бесчеловечные, вызывающие страх и восхищение, с неизвестными нам целями, они безумно интригуют.

В общем готовьтесь к качественному началу новой серии, я думаю, что Элизабет замутила что-то совершенно эпичное.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
