Imitation & Alchemy is LIVE.

It's Live-2And by live, I mean in the immortal-creature-of-the-night sense, naturally.


Thank you to everyone who has been following along on the blog while I posted, and thank you to everyone who waited until the book is available to buy, as well! Imitation and Alchemy is getting some pretty great reviews, which is always nice:

My loyalties are never in question. You should know that by now.“Imitation and Alchemy is an astonishing fantasy-filled adventure topped to the brim with intelligence, suspense, and delicious, yet morally questionable decisions.[<-EH note: I feel like this quote possibly sums up Tenzin’s character as a whole.]”

“It is rare an author can create characters so enchanting, a world so captivating or a plot so enthralling that it could make it through more than a dozen books. But Elizabeth Hunter can do it – and she does it in spades. I loved this novella.” The Lit Buzz

“…It’s fast and fun and a very Tenzin-like little heist. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I think you will too. Recommended.” Nocturnal Book Reviews

My loyalties are never in question. You should know that by now.-2Synopsis:
All Ben Vecchio wanted was a quiet summer before his last semester of university. Was that too much to ask?

All Tenzin wanted was a cache of priceless medieval coins that had been missing for several hundred years.

And some company.

Phrases like “never again” don’t mean much when you’ve been a vampire for several thousand years. And promises made in the heat of anger don’t always outweigh the lure of gold. Ben Vecchio thought he knew everything there was to know about the immortals of Italy. But when Tenzin tempts him into another adventure, finding a cache of rare gold coins missing since the nineteenth century, he’ll discover that familiar places can hold the most delicious secrets. And possibly the key to his future.

Ben and Tenzin are back in an all-new novella in the Elemental Legacy series.

  1. Bought mine yesterday (28th in NZ) read it in one sitting, wouldn’t, couldn’t move from my chair and loved it, can’t wait for the next one (greedy, I know).

  2. Read the chapters as you posted them, but immediately purchased the novella and read the epilogue…..Loved it! If only I had something as much fun to read every day……Thank you!

  3. Even though I have been reading the Saturday chapters, I couldn’t wait to purchase the book. Bought it. Read it all again. Now I am sitting here kind of emotional….Am I crazy? Ben’s vulnerability has really touched my heart. I love that he is at a crossroads in his life, and has some decisions to make. But, it also breaks my heart just a little. I cannot wait for his ( and Tenzin’s – as I think that where one is, so will the other be in some form or another) story to continue. Bravo Ms. Hunter! Bravo!
