Paranormal Fantasy Early Review: Blood Apprentice by Elizabeth Hunter

Blood Apprentice by Elizabeth Hunter (Elemental Legacy #2)


ecopy thanks to the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
If you’re a human in a vampire’s world, nothing goes according to plan.

When a map to the mysterious fortune of notorious privateer Miguel Enríquez falls in the lap of Ben and Tenzin, only one of them is jumping at the opportunity. Tenzin can’t wait to search for a secret cache of gold. Ben, on the other hand, couldn’t be less excited.

All Ben knows about Puerto Rico is what he hears on the news and a few lingering memories of his human grandmother. Going back to his roots holds zero appeal for the carefully constructed man he’s become.

In the end, the lure of hidden gold can’t be denied.

Ben and Tenzin head to Puerto Rico where the immortal world is ruled by Los Tres, a trio of powerful vampires commanding the wind, the waves, and the mountains that make up this small island in the Caribbean.

To find Enríquez’s treasure, they’ll have to walk a fine line between flattery and secrecy. To leave the island might mean a bigger fight than either one of them foresaw.

Blood Apprentice is the second novel in the Elemental Legacy, a paranormal mystery series by Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Irin Chronicles.

Whoa! How the dynamics have changed between my favourite couple! This book was gripping, entertaining and bittersweet.

It's all fun and games until Ben has to face his past and his roots by going with Tenzin to Puerto Rico where they will chase a pirate treasure amidst the upheaval in local vampire court. The closer he is to the land and people he stepped away from in order to stay close to his adopted uncle, the more his childhood memories resurface.

It's all a barrel of laughs until Tenzin faces her fear of being underground and her growing attraction to her partner. She has this immense complexity and duality where she is constantly at war with herself. "Kill him. He is a weakness." "Take him. He is yours." It's a tug of war, alright, and it cranks up the tension.

While the treasure hunt is very entertaining, it's the emotions between these two, what's being said and left unsaid that is very powerful. I absolutely loved it, and I can not wait to see what the future brings for them.

Gio has a cameo appearance, and he is at his best! And Los Tres, the vampire court of Puerto Rico had an intriguing secondary plotline which I really enjoyed.

Overall, this is Elizabeth Hunter at her best. I adore her books and especially Elemental Legacy series. Highly recommended. Read it.

Ничего себе, динамика между моей любимой парочкой воров! Как же она поменялась! Эта книга была напряженной, развлекательной и горько- сладкой.

Это все шуточки и веселье пока Бену не приходится лететь с Тензин в Пуэрто Рико, чтобы поохотиться за потерянным пиратским сокровищем посреди хаоса и интриг местного двора вампиров. Столкнувшись со своими корнями и родственниками, от которых он давно отказался в пользу Джио, Бен начинает вспоминать давно забытые кусочки детства.

Это все лукавство и сарказм, пока Тензин не приходиться бороться со своим страхом быть заживо погребенной и растущим влечением к своему партнеру. ОНа очень комплексный и противоречивый персонаж. "Убей его. Он - твоя слабость." "Возьми его. Он принадлежит тебе." Она постоянно борется с самой собой. И в то же время, Бен единственный, кто понимает ее и кто помогает ей измениться.

Хоть и охота за сокровищами интересна, именно эмоциональная борьба между партнерами держит читателя в напряжении. Что сказано и о чем умолчанно несет в себе глубокий смысл. И я жду не дождусь того, как будут развиваться отношения Бена и Тензин дальше.

У Джио здесь маккиавелливское камео, да и двор Трех - вампиров Пуэрто Рико оказывается довольно интересной второстепенной сюжетной линией.

В общем, Элизабет Хантер как всегда безупречна. Особенно в этой серии. Очень рекомендую. Читайте.

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
