Paranormal Fantasy Early Review: Midnight Labyrinth by Elizabeth Hunter

Midnight Labyrinth by Elizabeth Hunter (Elemental Legacy #4)


ecopy thanks to the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
He’s one human caught in a tangled maze of theft, politics, magic, and blood.
 In other words, it’s just another night.


Benjamin Vecchio escaped a chaotic childhood and grew to adulthood under the protection and training of one of the Elemental world’s most feared vampire assassins. He’s traveled the world and battled immortal enemies.


But everyone has to go home sometime.


New York means new opportunities and allies for Ben and his vampire partner, Tenzin. It also means new politics and new threats. Their antiquities business is taking off, and their client list is growing. When Ben is challenged to find a painting lost since the second world war, he jumps at the chance. This job will keep him closer to home, but it might just land him in hot water with the insular clan of earth vampires who run Manhattan.


Tenzin knew the painting would be trouble before she laid eyes on it, but she can’t deny the challenge intrigues her. Human laws mean little to a vampire with a few millennia behind her, and Tenzin misses the rush of taking what isn’t hers.


But nothing is more dangerous than a human with half the story, and Ben and Tenzin might end up risking their reputations and their lives before they escape the Midnight Labyrinth.


MIDNIGHT LABYRINTH is the first book in an all new contemporary fantasy series by Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Elemental Mysteries and the Irin Chronicles


Release date: November 7, 2017.

9/10

I knew, I just knew that a full-size novel with Ben and Tenzin in it would be a riot.

These two are a perfect combination of warm familiarity and ridiculous amounts of snappy dialogues between a cranky, antisocial vampire legend and a charming, quick-witted and too curious for his own good human.

Tenzin says something in this book, which makes her attachment to Ben perfectly understandable. Something along the lines that if a vampire wants to live past their first hundred years, they should surround themselves with people they love. It's the people around them who will motivate them to go on. Ben is, undoubtedly, that person to her.

There is just so much paranormal crack candy here, peeps!

Chloe, Ben's high school flame and a dear friend, joins the gang, and she is amazing!

The trio waltzes through a fabulous heist in Thomas Crown's Affair style. So much flair and cheekiness here. *fans herself*

Tenzin gets a Cinderella-like makeover, thanks to Chloe's stylist and one intrepid costume designer. O_o!

Another gorgeous vampire/human couple is being born.

I was savoring every line: Tenzin's mother hen tendencies towards her partner, Ben's unexpected darkness and desperate drive to be stronger, faster, better... Chloe's insights brought much needed grounding to Ben and Tenzin's reckless impulsivity.

Not going to spoil the plot anymore, just grab the book and freaking read it! It's awesome.

 Я с самого начала чувствовала, что полномасштабная книга с Беном и Тэнзин будет бомбовской, и оказалась права.

Эти двое - идеальная комбинация теплой фамильярности и терпких диалогов между чурающейся общества вампирши-легенды и очаровательным, смекалистым и чересчур любопытным молодым человеком.

Тэнзин бросается фразой в этой книге, четко формулирующей ее привязанность к Бену. Она говорит, что если вампир хочет прожить больше первых 100 лет после его "рождения", то ему стоит окружить себя людьми, которых он любит. То есть, именно их присутствие побудит его не встретить солнце слишком рано. Без сомнения, Бен для нее - один из таких людей.

И вообще, здесь много паранормальных конфеток, от которых просто пищишь, ребята!

К команде присоединяется Хлои - подруга и бывшая герлфренд Бена, что срабатывает просто замечательно. Особенно, когда эта троица проворачивает аферу в стиле Томаса Крауна.

Тэнзин проходит через метаморфозу в стиле Золушки, на что скажем спасибо стилисту и бесстрашному костюмеру Хлои.

Начинает фомироваться еще одна замечательная паранормальная пара для новых книг серии, которая мне уже ужасно нравится.

Я смаковала каждое предложение: склонность Тэнзин по-матерински заботиться о Бене; неожиданнаую темноту Бена и его отчаянный драйв стать быстрее, сильнее, лучше; мудрость Хлои, которая сбалансировала безрассудную импульсивность Бена и Тэнзин...

Не буду спойлерить сюжет, просто покупайте и читайте! Сатисфакцию гарантирую.

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
