Paranormal Fantasy Early Review: The Scarlet Deep by Elizabeth Hunter

The Scarlet Deep by Elizabeth Hunter (Elemental World #3)

Ecopy thanks to the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
On the waves of the North Atlantic, a poison spreads, sapping the life from humans and striking madness into immortals.

Patrick Murphy, the immortal leader of Dublin, has been trying to stem the tide of Elixir washing into his territory, but nothing seems to stop the vampire drug. While others in the immortal world work to cure the creeping insanity that Elixir threatens, Murphy has been invited to London to join a summit of leaders hoping to discover who is shipping the drug. If Murphy and his allies can cut off the supply, they might be able to halt the spread long enough for a treatment to be found for the humans and vampires infected.

Anne O’Dea, Murphy’s former lover, retreated from public life over one hundred years ago to help immortals in need… and to heal her own broken heart. Though powerful connections keep her insulated from the violence of vampire politics, even Anne is starting to feel the effects of Elixir on her isolated world. The human blood supply has been tainted, and with Anne’s unique needs, even those closest to her might be in danger. Not just from infection, but Anne’s escalating bloodlust.

When Anne and Murphy are both called to London, they’re forced to confront a connection as immortal as they are. As they search for a traitor among allies, they must also come to terms with their past. Behind the safe facade of politics, old hungers still burn, even as an ancient power threatens the fate of the Elemental World.

Release date: July 7th 2015.

 There was something really lovely, poetic and comforting about this book, peeps. Almost like going into Cambio Springs series rather than Elemental World.

 Perhaps it's because The Scarlet Deep is a book about love lost and found again years later.

Anne and Murphy used to be a mated pair madly in love a hundred years ago until Murphy asked Anne to do something against her principles to help him solidify his power. The couple split, and a century later Murphy rules Dublin, and Anne has a quiet practice in Galloway, where she consults her various vampire clients with different psychological problems.  Both can't forget each other no matter how much and how hard they try.

Murphy is in the midst of fighting to keep his territory free from the Elixir and at some point he decides that he needs to stop lying to himself and try to win Anne back. The problem is that together they are explosive, and he very often puts his foot in his mouth instead of saying something nice and profound to the woman he loves. *grinning* In a way these two reminded me of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Far and Away. They were fiery!

So, the man has a cunning plan to make Anne stick with him for a few days, and hopefully she will see what she is missing and how much he still loves her. Unfortunately the couple lands in a pool of deadly intrigues when the war between Elixir makers and those who try to stop them evolves to a whole new level, but hey! Nothing like a little bit of danger, treachery and murder to spice things up, right?

 The Scarlet Deep is sexy, earthy and beautiful.  Anne and Murphy are compelling together, and you really want them to reunite. While we don't see Gio and Beatrice, there is plenty of Brigid and Carwyn, and we also meet an intriguing Russian, Oleg, whom I hope to see again very soon *wink*

Overall, it's an intense read, a delicious new installment in Elemental World series. Recommended.

Ну вот очень уютной, милой и поэтичной оказалась одна из последних книг Элизабет Хантер. Возможно, случилось это потому, что Кроваво-Красные Глубины - это книга о любви утерянной и вновь найденной.

Сто лет назад Анн и Мёрфи были женаты по вампирским законам и безумно любили друг друга, пока Мёрфи не попросил Анн пойти наперекор её принципам и использовать её Дар, чтобы укрепить его положение у власти. Их союз распался, и столетие спустя ни тот, ни другая никак не могут друг друга забыть.

Мёрфи правит территорией Дублина, Анн открыла консультацию по психологическим проблемам в Галлоуэй и помогает их разрешить своим вампирам клиентам со всего мира.

В какой-то момент Мёрфи, по уши в борьбе против поставщиков смертельного Эликсира, наконец-то решает перестать лгать самому себе и попытаться вновь завоевать Анн. Проблема в том, что темпераменты у обоих взрывные, чем они очень напомнили мне
 Тома Круза и  Николь Кидман в фильме Далеко Далеко, и каждый раз когда Мёрфи открывает рот, чтобы извиниться перед женой, из него сыпятся оскорбления и обвинения!

 Но не переживайте! У него есть хитрый план, чтобы вынудить Анн провести с ним несколько дней, и он надеется что влечение между ними поставит все на свои места. Однако, план  его вовлекает пару в опасный водоворот событий, когда война против поставщиков Эликсира выходит на новый уровень, и оба вынуждены работать вместе, чтобы выжить и выявить всех новых игроков схемы.

Кроме очаровательной пары, нам удаётся насладиться обществом милашки Карвина и Бриджид, а также познакомиться с интригующим русским, Олегом. Сюжет интенсивный, притяжение между главными героями явное, и книга читается очень быстро. Советую!

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
