I haven't been that thrilled and awed by a self-publishing author since I've read Meilin Miranda's Lovers and Beloveds.

Some books are like delicious dark chocolate, but some books are like exquisite red wine - rich, intoxicating, powerful. A Hidden Fire is just one such book.

It reminds you why you fell in love with vampires all those years ago when you had your first Anne Rice's book or watched Count Dracula with his fake Transylvanian accent charm Mina.

A Hidden Fire delivers strong feel of Anne Rice but with a touch of Elizabeth Kostova and Dan Brown. It's not a paranormal romance, but a mystery with romantic elements.

Two main characters, - Beatrice, a young and very bright Goth girl slash librarian, and a 500 year old vampire Giovanni work together to unravel a mystery, stay alive and bring the villain down.

Giovanni or Gio had been groomed as a perfect vampire and turned young five centuries ago by an unhinged Master. As an Italian aristocrat who grew up in times of Borgia he is a skilled politician, strategist and has an enormous self-control, but he can't help being fascinated by Beatrice.

However, this is one of the few rare book where a vampire acts his age, and not like a train wrecked on hormones teenager. He thinks things through and thinks of the consequences. Both Beatrice and Gio fight their attraction, there is this gradually building sexual tension between them during the whole book... And this is another thing I was so wild about. Nothing heats up blood better than delayed sexual gratification :)

Secondary characters are just as mesmerizing.

Note the number of reviews and the high star marks.

Have to say I did enjoy the book eventually. What let it down for me was the very very slow pace until the last third of the book. The author appears to be ensuring she has a required number of words in the novel and does so by repeating regular meetings between the 'heroine Beatrice' and her eventual vampire hero and ( love interest ??)

When the action does begin in earnest the book comes to life and saves it from being my first and last read in the series. Now looking forward to reading book 2 with the hope that the momentum continues.

My thanks to the author.

i love this sereis, enjoyed the first book so much that i had to buy the following three to see what happened. they're all a good length, well written and edited and with superb characters. Beatric and Giovannis romance is a slow burn one - a change to get that delicious sizzle when characters are dancing round their attraction to each other. one to read and re-read again and agian as there's so much detail and riverting story.

A friend recommended this new author to me and I actually began by reading the Scribe. That book was better but still not good enough for me to invest more time into the series. Like the scribe, the characters here are inconsistent. But at least the scribe had more of a plot. This book – I’m sorry to say – is boring and only now and again references the mysterious letters, which don’t sound interesting anyway. The plot is very weak.

I’ve managed to get over halfway through the book and I can’t take anymore. I’ve rolled my eyes a lot, but not as much as the characters have winked and smirked at each other. And certainly not as many times as they’ve answered ‘practically’ any question with ‘of course!’… (‘shall we go for a drive?’ – ‘of course!’ – ‘is that the only response you have?’ – ‘of course!’)

I found the writing pretty childish with Beatrice finding out he’s a vampire and sticking her tongue out at him, calling him Mr Prissypants and referring to him as Batman (which is so cliché it’s unreal). And what is so interesting about this ‘common voiced’ normal looking mortal girl? Nothing. She wears combat boots with a skirt and smells of honeysuckle. Seriously, is that it? Oh but Beatrice is so intelligent (really?) – we are constantly reminded by the author how unusually bright Beatrice is… I don’t know what part of ‘I dye my hair black because it’s nearly black and I don’t do anything half-assed’ constitutes intelligent, but this is the most of any opinion she’s had in the book. Now and again she recognises something obvious is going on, to which a vampire responds ‘clever, clever girl…’ - and is constantly repeated.

Giovanni, the unbelievably gorgeous vampire, began as a bit of a mystery but soon winked and smirked as much as anyone else.

Heck where do I start? This book blew me away and I read it in less than a day, I was absolutely hooked from page one........... Elizabeth Hunter brought her characters to life with wit, charm, appeal, sexiness, intrigue, this list could be endless. What a ride! I am totally hooked on this series now, it's up there all the latest trilogies that suck you in and leave you panting for me. I love the romantic element, always there but kept suspenseful and endearing. I loved the intrigue about Lorenzo and Stephen and Gio's long lost library of books. I loved the twist on the paranormal and what element the vampires were. I loved the characters and the verbal jousting between 'B', Gio and Carwyn. There is absolutely nothing to complain about within these pages, this story has been brilliantly brought to life by the pen of Elizabeth Hunter. What amazes me is why has there been so few reviews for this book, it should be shouted about to everyone, raved about and promoted to all and sundry. I wish I was a book blogger now and reviewing this on my own blog to 1000's of readers and help Elizabeth get the recognition she deserves for such a fantastic debut novel, I for one can't promote this book enough - READ IT, YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID!
