Elizabeth Hunter – Elemental Mysteries Series Reading Order

by Maryse on October 25, 2012 · 13 comments

in Reading Order Guide:

This series has come to my attention very recently. Book #1 was a freebie (might still be!) and it seems to have spurred on some very enthusiastic recommendations!

Suzanne: “There’s one series that I just finished reading by Elizabeth Hunter that I loved called the Elemental Series”

Jodi: If you haven’t read the Elemental Mysteries you need to. It has an awesome series. It has a Bones and Kat (Night Huntress) feel to it.
Great read..

Sharon: The Elemental Mysteries series is FAN FREAKING TABULOUS!  I read all four books in literally 3 days flat.  I could not put them down.  I recommend them to anyone who enjoys YA angst and vampires!

About book #1:

A phone call from an old friend sets Dr. Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mystery he’d abandoned years before.  He never expected a young librarian could hold the key to the search, nor could he have expected the danger she would attract.  Now he and Beatrice De Novo will follow a twisted maze that leads from the archives of a university library, through the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a confrontation they never could have predicted.

And the “Elemental World” spinoff:


From the author (about the future of this series):

“As of right now, I am planning another series of books for Ben and Tenzin, but that is still very much in the planning stages, so it will be a while. In short, Elemental Mysteries will only be FOUR books, but the Elemental World is much bigger than that and I plan to write in it for some time.”

Just finished this series and it is excellent!! The first book started a little slow, not in a bad way though, and just go better and better. The first book from the spin-off series is excellent as well.

Excellent series! Got my daughter, niece and cousin to read them they are that good. I was wondering why no one had mentioned them. I’ve been following your blog since I found you (et al) have similar taste and it helped when I needed to find a book to read (lol). By my ‘scifi’ email you can guess what else I read

Side note: actually I think you might enjoy some of it too – if you ever want to expand try Turing Evolved. You will be nicely surprised – there’s romance, intrigue, action, A.N.G.E.L., A.R.C.H.A.N.G.E.L., (demons/heaven/etc) just not the way you think hmmmm.

Anyway, Elemental series was just excellent!

This series is great! Read all four books in 2 days. Just couldn’t stop and had to know how it all ended. Loved the characters and the dialogue between them. Highly reccomend this series!

I just got introduced to “Shade” by Jeri Smith-Ready. I’m looking forward to this series. It has to do with ghosts. I will give an update after I’m finished, but I’ve read a lot of great reviews.

I’ve been loving this series! I’m currently reading The Fall of Water. I’m excited for Building From Ashes! :)
