A Hidden Fire: Elemental Mysteries #1

Book 1, Elemental Mysteries - Elemental Mysteries/Elemental World, no. 1

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A phone call from an old friend sets Dr. Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mysterious manuscript he's hunted for over five hundred years. He never expected a young student librarian could be the key to unlock its secrets, nor could he have predicted the danger she would attract.

Now he and Beatrice De Novo follow a twisted maze that leads from the archives of a university library, though the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a confrontation hundreds of years in the making.

History and the paranormal collide in A Hidden Fire, the first book in the bestselling Elemental Mysteries series and semifinalist in the Kindle Book Review's Best Indie Books of 2012.

Customer Reviews

Excellent Series

I downloaded book one for free and was pleasantly surprised by how engaging the main characters were. While the book is categorized as fantasy, I enjoyed the love story between Gio and Beatrice. I enjoyed it so much that I read the entire four book series in less than a week!

Finally an original vampire story!!!

Long before Twilight was all the rage I have been a vampire fan. Anne Rice is one of my favorite authors and I have been long searching for others like her. I will rarely pay for books online and choose authors who offer one book free to see if the writing style they offer is something I am interested in. I have found several including Joleene Naylor, A.M. Hudson and others. All of the stories have the romance aspect and are well written, but this particular set of books are extremely different. There is a mystery/intrigue aspect to them that I found fascinating and which also made them very hard to put down. You should be very proud of this series as it is becoming increasingly difficult to come up with an original vampire story. If you are looking for a different type of vampire and a science aspect with intrigue, look no further!

Kept me up all night!

This book is a MUST READ! I was so captivated by this book I ended up purchasing all the books in the series and finished it in 3 days! Loved the story loved the characters.
