"No secret stays hidden forever."

Still grieving from their loss in the far East, Giovanni Vecchio and Beatrice De Novo discover that for them, all roads really do lead to Rome. But nothing is quite as it seems in the Eternal City. Joined by Carwyn and Tenzin, unexpected clashes greet them almost immediately, and rivalries churn beneath the glittering facade of the old Roman court. They quickly realize that allies might be enemies, and ancient rivals could hold the key to a deadly secret.

Giovanni and Beatrice will be forced to call on old alliances, ancient powers, and fierce cunning to survive for the eternity they both desire. Sometimes, finding the end means going back to the beginning. Fire, Earth, Wind, and Water finally meet with devastating results in the conclusion of the Elemental Mysteries.

A Fall of Water was the perfect ending to B & Gio’s story, as well as the Elemental Mysteries series. EHunter brought things to a very satisfying conclusion without it being trite. She also setting the stage for the two (?) spinoff series in such a way as to ensure I continue on with these characters. 🙂 Special thanks, once again, to Lenore of Celebrity Readers for buddy reading with me. *mwah*

Everything has been leading up to this final book. The culmination of it all was exhilarating, gut-wrenching, and riveting. B and Gio spend much time apart as they deal with politics and locating allies required in order to prevent a war as well as the release of a devastating secret. The majority of the story takes place in Rome and I adored the descriptions of everything from the cobbled back streets to Livia’s home. All the major players are present and I was delighted to have Carwyn, Ben, Tenzin and others all present. A few new characters are introduced, which was enlightening and at times, heartbreaking. As per usual, EHunter didn’t shy away from the violence required and I appreciated it.

With this series, EHunter has placed herself firmly on my Favorite Authors list and I look forward to reading more from her. A Fall of Water kept me on the edge of my seat and I was loathe to put down my kindle even if I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to B and Gio. I can’t explain how happy I was as I read the final sentences. That’s how gratifying this final book was. So I’ll just *sigh* in pleasure.
