On the waves of the North Atlantic, a poison spreads, sapping the life from humans and striking madness into immortals.

Patrick Murphy, the immortal leader of Dublin, has been trying to stem the tide of Elixir washing into his territory, but nothing seems to stop the vampire drug. While others in the immortal world work to cure the creeping insanity that Elixir threatens, Murphy has been invited to London to join a summit of leaders hoping to discover who is shipping the drug. If Murphy and his allies can cut off the supply, they might be able to halt the spread long enough for a treatment to be found for the humans and vampires infected.

Anne O’Dea, Murphy’s former lover, retreated from public life over one hundred years ago to help immortals in need… and to heal her own broken heart. Though powerful connections keep her insulated from the violence of vampire politics, even Anne is starting to feel the effects of Elixir on her isolated world. The human blood supply has been tainted, and with Anne’s unique needs, even those closest to her might be in danger. Not just from infection, but Anne’s escalating bloodlust.

When Anne and Murphy are both called to London, they’re forced to confront a connection as immortal as they are. As they search for a traitor among allies, they must also come to terms with their past. Behind the safe facade of politics, old hungers still burn, even as an ancient power threatens the fate of the Elemental World.

What a wonderful story! I am not a professional book reviewer, I am just a reader. I have loved Elisabeth Hunters writing for years. This is another in The Elemental series that just keeps getting better and better. I hope she never stops writing. If you are looking for a great series to read, this is it.

Being a fan of Hunter’s since I first found the Elemental series by accident a few years ago, I am a complete fan of the writing, and stories that Hunter shares with us. This story was one that I really enjoyed because of how at odds Anne and Murphy both are. There were a few times where I really doubted they would be able to get past everything, and even now, I’m still shaking my head. There was a bunch of twists and turns that happened in this story that added to the overall feel of it. One thing that I do love about it is that the story continues on for those of us who have read the other books in the series. I do think that you can read it if you haven’t read the other books, because enough information is given about what all is going on, and what has happened, that you can still enjoy it. Anne and Murphy’s characters were really well-written and well done. Which you come to expect when you read a book by Hunter. I love how we get to find out about those two, their pasts, and what they have been doing while apart. Not only that but we do get some updates on the other characters that we have previously met in the series. And it was done in a way that didn’t overtake the whole book. Overall, once again I am blown away by Hunter’s books and I can’t wait for the next one in the series! Reviewed by Crystal Marie for Crystal’s Many Reviewers *Copy BOUGHT for review*

It is no mystery that I love Elizabeth Hunter's writing. She weaves world of paranormal intrigue with the skill of the greatest authors in the land. Her characters are witty, intelligent, and authentic. They are full of life and vibrancy. Couple those attributes with a world full of mystery and fantastical circumstance, well you have yourself a book and series that becomes addicting. Anne and Murphy's story was nothing short of fantastic, taking the reader a bit deeper into the Element World and giving us more of a mystery to ponder. The Scarlet Deep is the perfect third installment to the Elemental World series. We see cameos of characters featured before in this series and I loved seeing my favorites work along side my new favorites. Anne and Murphy's characters are brilliant. Murphy has been seen in glimpses throughout the entire series and I was so excited to finally learn more about him. Something about his personalty was always alluring and now I understand the full extent of that allure. Anne is a strong and capable female lead. She is determined, kind, and fresh. When you add in the fact that these two are vampires, the sky is the limit as to what Elizabeth will share with the world next. One thing I loved about this book (and all of Hunter's stories) is that there is a well developed romance but SO much more. The romance between Anne and Murphy is a beautiful story of second chances and the choices of two lovers to set aside their desires and ambitions. These two are better together than they are apart. They inspire and spur one another to better things and that makes them a fresh and wonderful couple. These two are full of passion, desire, and love. Their interactions are full of intent. I loved watching them both learn to love what each other has become and respect the change that the past 100 years has had on them individually. They are each a force to be reckoned with separately but together, they have the power to influence Dublin, and the vampire world as a whole, in a powerful way. The mystery aspect of this story is something that has carried on throughout most of the Elemental books. The Elixir, a potion that kills vampires and humans alike, is running rampant throughout Europe and beyond. It is up to the leaders in the vampire world to find a solution and cut off the head of the beast. There are many new players introduced and many new nations. I was excited to meet new leaders and learn more about faces we had breifly met in the past books of the series. The development of the Elixir problem is well paced and exciting. We see the danger surrounding this issue first hand. There is death, both violent and painfully slow, associated with this drug. It is something people will kill for. Watching Murphy and Anne attempt to solve this problem added another element of depth to their characters. They are intelligent and shrewd, seeing things in a new light and fighting for answers. There is so much goodness in this story that I could spends hundreds of words and countless hours raving over this book. Elizabeth Hunter keeps adding more jewels to her Paranormal Queen crown and I happily wait on bated breath for more. This story has a beautiful ebb and flow, a love story that is timeless, and a mystery that will leave you wanting more. I am excited for more of this series and to see who is featured next!

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to receive and advanced copy of Elizabeth Hunter's The Scarlet Deep and I am pleased to say the latest book in the Elemental World series was worth every late-night minute I spent reading it. True to the series, romantic tension is high, as is danger, and mystery. Once again Hunter will submerge you in the unseen world of the vampires as they struggle to solve the mystery of Elixir; a drug that kills both vampires and humans. In the midst of a council meeting of key vampire leaders, estranged mated couple Anne O’Dea and Patrick Murphy are thrown together again after 100 years of separation and sparks fly. But Anne has a dangerous secret that could be her downfall, and she's not going to be able to hide it for long, especially from Murphy who is actively seeking to win her back. Anne must balance her secret with learning whether or not she can allow Murphy back into her heart, protecting her vampire therapy clients, and serving on the council for her sister who has plans of her own. Chaos, doom, mystery, vampire fights, political intrigue, broken-furniture-love-making, sass, and maybe even a few tears are in store. That’s vampires for you. To get the full effect of The Scarlet Deep I recommend reading the previous books in the Elemental series, but the book is also able to stand alone.
