Summary

Carwyn ap Bryn and Brigid Connor are two elemental vampires finding the lost, righting wrongs, and searching for meaning in the endless stretch of immortality they’ve been granted.

And trying not to blow things up, but that might be more aspirational.

Everyone said that Lupe Martínez was a good kid. She listened to her mom, she helped at the homeless shelter, she got good grades, and she had a bright future ahead of her.

Until she disappeared.

Now no one knows what to think. The police are sure she ran away; her mother is sure she didn’t. Days have passed and no one knows what to do until her family priest suggests they call in an old friend.

A very old friend.

Saint’s Passage is the first book in the paranormal mystery series Elemental Covenant by Elizabeth Hunter, USA Today best-selling author of the Elemental Legacy series, the Glimmer Lake Series, and the Irin Chronicles.

Complex, Original, and Intriguing!

This is the first book in the Elemental Covenant Series, a paranormal mystery series. The characters are well developed. The storyline is original, complex, slow paced, and intriguing. Sean William Doyle did a great job with the narration.

Slow start

I found this story slow off the mark. I struggled to stay engaged. I'm a huge fan of vampire stories, unfortunately, this one didn't hit the mark for me. There are some triggers in this story. Overall I give it 3 🌟

Great characters

Elizabeth Hunter is fairly new to me - new enough that I wasn't familiar with Carwyn and Brigid. I didn't even know they had a book before this. Now that I do, I will be gobbling that up. That said, I didn't know about their book until after listening to this one, so I'll just go ahead and say now that I didn't feel like I was missing anything. I just loved this couple, and now that I'm aware, I want to know what got them to this point, what made them a couple.
As for Saint's Passage, I loved the relationship between Carwyn and Brigid. The banter is witty and fun, which is a nice contrast to the seriousness of their current case. And it is a serious one, one that hits Brigid on a personal level. I also liked the elemental premise, and I found their powers fascinating. There are a fair number of characters here, some we only meet a time or two and some who play a more important role, but as I'm learning about Elizabeth Hunter, everyone is well drawn and interesting.
Sean William Doyle gives voice to the characters, and he does it well. I love the accents, and he kept the tone of the story engaging and entertaining. I'm enjoying his narration as much as the story he's drawing me into.
So, I have another reason to check out more of Elizabeth Hunter's work as well as Sean William Doyle's narration, and I'll certainly be seeing what Carwyn and Brigid get up to next.

What a let down

This was very disappointing coming from Elizabeth Hunter. It was predictable and just kind of boring.

Loved this story!

Wow... what a great story! I loved the characters, Brigid and Carwyn, and how they were vampires who helped find an undocumented girl who'd gone missing. But on their journey, they meet other wonderful characters who help them out to not only find Lupe but help when the reason she went missing became a much bigger problem. She was trying to save some migrant children who'd been taken and were being held for trafficking. Brigid and Carwyn got to use their amazing powers to help get the kids out, use their connections to help get them home and basically save the day.
Loved this.

The narrator did an amazing job with everyone's voices... even giving the appropriate accents!

I received an ALC for my honest review!

Great fantasy

Brigid and Carwyn were so perfect for each other. This was full of action, some heat, and comedy. The determination to help the children that were being held captive. Although Sean William Doyle is a new narrator to me, he did a great job with the narration.

A well written story about two vampire maincharacters who are working as investigators.

It has a little spice in it.

The narrators did a great job with that many characters.

A Fascinating Paranormal Mystery! Great Listen🎧

Elizabeth Hunter pens another fascinating and imaginative story with equally fascinating and imaginative paranormal characters, vampires, but not just ordinary vampires, rather they are elemental vampires. The story drew me right in, grabbing my attention and holding it captive the entire time. The world she created is fascinating too, it is new to me and I think those who are familiar with the author’s “Elemental Mysteries” series may have more of an advantage since they are already familiar with the world and the characters. Not that I felt like I was missing anything, but knowing the world, the characters came and more about their paranormal abilities may have added depth and familiarity. The lead characters, Carwyn ap Bryn and Brigid Connor, are Elemental vampires and mates. A girl goes missing while visiting friends in the United States and because of their skills they asked them to help find her. I adored these two characters, they are fabulous together and made a great team trying to find and following all the leads to the missing girl, Lupe Martinez. There is never a dull moment in this book, it is a cleverly plotted story with a perfect balance of drama, some humor via witty dialogue, mystery, action, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions and some romance. Elizabeth Hunter, thank you for another fantastic story and wild ride.

🎧 📚🎧 And for the fabulous narration, Sean William Doyle is a talented narrator and a versatile voice artist. He did a great job bringing these characters and their story to life and did so with a complete understanding of who they were, giving each their own distinct voice, making it easy to follow along and tell who was who. He set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the characters’ emotions and projected them into his performance and had you feeling every single one. Doyle is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this fantastic listen.

Love, love any story with Carwyn! Always guaranteed to make me laugh and smile! A unexpected new adventure and a life decision make for an entertaining addition to the Elemental vampire world. The narrator did a fantastic job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene!
