Giovanni's and Beatrice's epic adventures continues in this second installment of the Elemental Mysteries series. It's five years later and Giovanni has come back to claim B as his, but she was so hurt by him and isn't having any of that. Giovanni believed he was doing what's right for B when he let her walk away five years ago, he thought she needed time to mature and grow into her own person. That was good of Giovanni to care about B enough to realize that her jumping into his world without thinking it through might cause regret. Nice Giovanni, your such a arrogant bastard fooling yourself and everyone that your were only doing this for B, (channeling Beatrice here)he was also protecting himself, he was worried that a hundred years later B would hate him for stealing her human life and it's rewards. He was worried that she only had a crush or maybe wouldn't want to take the ultimate step of becoming like him. I get it, he was afraid of getting hurt since he has never cared for anyone in five hundred years the way he cares for B. That's my feelings on that matter but I still loved him, no worries.

This sequel was so amazing that I don't think I can accurately convey the events that took place in this story. Let's just say that there was actually adventure and mystery in this epic story, Giovanni and B's journeys across the globe added some of the best parts to the story. It had an historical feel to it which in turn added that epicness I was getting. I liked seeing Giovanni's and B's feelings for each other grow into to something with substance and grit which made it very believable. There was a lot of new interesting characters with their own agenda. In real life, hate politics with a passion but the vampire politics was interesting to see. Excited about the addition of Benjamin to Giovanni's new family, hope to see more of him in the series. There is so much to experience in This Same Earth, it was definitely filled with anticipation and danger. Great storytelling and an exciting thrill ride. I digress. ( )

the story is improving...the characters are changing a little but the plot is getting more involved.
I am looking forward to book 3 which I will start right now ( )

Elemental Mysteries turned into one of the best paranormal series I've read this year. It's sharp, elegant, clever, evenly paced without dragging its feet and at the same time emotionally intense.

I'm extremely grateful that book #2 was just as strong as book #1. Expect the unexpected. This book is a free fall with a twist. You really don't know where you're going to land in the end... *grinning* I certainly didn't, and now I can't wait for book #3 to continue reading about Gio and Beatrice's adventures.

There are just so many things I like! The way Gio comes back into Beatrice's life, how she is introduced to his world, the intrigues and carefully woven dialogues. How strong a woman she becomes in the years he's been away...

Excellent, believable characters, fascinating world full of mystery and a great story line.

Very highly recommended. ( )

I bounced between 3 and 4 stars... I did enjoy this book, I like the variety of characters (Beatrice can be quite frustrating, but still...), and enjoyed B learning self-defense and all that. For those points I'd give the book 5 stars. But some of the problems just go on for too long and make me want to slap them all upside the head and yell at them, so that made me drop the pointage down some.

I must say, it is nice to see the characters evolve, at least somewhat. B is different from the beginning of the first book (and that is definitely a good thing), and even Giovanni has grown. A bit. A little bit. ( )

I had such high hopes for this book after I read the first one and I'm so glad to say that I was so not disappointed! The author just has a way to keep us interested in the story and to keep rooting for Gio and B to just get in on already! :)
I loved Carwyn in the first book, but I think it was very refreshing to see this new side of him on this one and to see that he is the sweeter vampire ever, besides Gio of course. Oh, and how about B kicking some serious vampire asses!? Hers and Gio's arqguing got so much better now with all their previous history that every scene they had together from the beginning of the book just left me at the edge of whatever surface I was reading at the time. Incredible storytelling, incredible plot and crazy chemistry between the main characters and the secondary characters also. I just love the way every character in this book has their own time in the spotlight and that no one is left behind. And what about Ben?! Cutest thing ever and such wisdom for a twelve year-old that made every appearence he made that much more fun to read. ( )
