Summary

An immortal wanderer. A brilliant scientist. A centuries-old menace written in blood.

Lucien Thrax, son of the earth and child of the ancients, is a healer of immense power. But years of work on a deadly vampire virus have not led to a cure, nor have they softened the wall he built around his heart. When he’s forced to work with Doctor Makeda Abel, Lucien is convinced he’s reached his limit of patience with humanity.

Makeda Abel may be human, but she’s far from impressed with the brooding vampire healer, even if his mind draws her reluctant admiration. She’s learned how to survive in the immortal world, and it’s not by being afraid. Working together may lead them to answers, but it also pushes Lucien and Makeda’s attraction to the boiling point.

When nightmares become reality, Makeda will have to trust Lucien with her life. Finding answers has never been more vital. Finding love has never been more deadly. To heal the elemental world, Lucien and Makeda must follow ancient paths and ask for help from the most inhuman of immortals. Because even with a cure in hand, the battle has only begun.

A Stone-Kissed Sea is the fourth novel in the Elemental World series.

Good storyline

This storyline was very unique. I will confess that I haven’t listened to the books before this one and I feel like I missed out a lot! It did say stand alone but I didn’t connect with the characters and think if I’d listened from book 1 then I would of. Fantastic performance.

Slightly disappointed

The story is, as expected from the author, brilliant. The performance is good. If this is the first Audiobook of the Elemental series someone's listened to, then I think it's good. However, I was disappointed to be honest. In my personal opinion the voice characterisations of a different narrator, Dina Pearlman, are outstanding and hard to match. In this audiobook I found Lucien's voice a bit of a drone, but my biggest grouch is that Caerwyn became Irish not Welsh! To my ears anyway, and his 'voice' also did not suggest to me the large man as in Dina Pearlman's characterisation. I found Tenzin, especially, and Baojia so different too. I re- listen to this author's Elemental series on a regular basis but I struggled to get to the end of this and won't listen to it again.

Worth the wait?

I feel like I have been waiting for this book to come out as an audio book FOREVER, so when I saw that it was available I was ecstatic! Right up to the point where I realized that the narrator was different from every other book in the Elemental World & Elemental Mysteries series.

I am a big proponent of consistency, and this is exactly why. Though Ava Lucas did a good job narrating this book, the consistency that we had flowing through the other books is gone. It was obvious to me from the very beginning that the narrator did not listen to any of the other books in either series to get a feel for the pronunciations, personalities or background of these much beloved characters. This was most obvious in her pronunciation of Lucien Thrax's name, but it didn't stop there, and though I have no intention of naming every little mispronunciation she made, just know that they were on many of the keywords that have been used throughout these series.

However, what's done is done and there is no use crying over spilt milk. And if I was just judging this narrator on this book alone, without its relationship to this series and universe as a whole, I would say that Ava Lucas did a good job keeping the voices for the characters in this book consistent and adding her own unique brand of dramatic flair to draw you into the story.

As for the book as a whole, Elizabeth Hunter, as always, did a wonderful job of drawing you in and holding on to you through out the book… Not to mention giving you ample reasons to want to return to this amazing universe!

Not the best Naruto

Although I love the series, I really didn't like the narrator and the sound quality was terrible. To mooted. It was hard to hear the vpoce. they should've use this regular narrator for the series. The story is good though.

Narration was not up to par

If I hadn't invested so much time and money in both Elemental series, I probably would have returned this the first hour in. I couldn't stand the awful accents, or the change in a character's voice (sometimes so shrill and out of place it made me jump). The overall lack of sharpness/clarity took away from the enjoyment in a big way. Eventually I stopped going back when I missed what was said because I just wanted it over. The story itself was good, though not great like her other novels.

I wanted more

Lucien and Makeda had the kind of sweet love that makes me read these books. The story was different which is refreshing to me. The narration was good except Luciens was a little rough. I will check out more work from this author. I wanted another chapter before the end.

Love This Book

This was a unique and multi-layered story. I haven't read or listen to any of the previous book, but now want to go back and start with book one. Love these characters and narrator, what a epic love story.

Entertaining

Lucien and Makeda’s story is full of unusual events and frenemies to lovers prose that is riveting. I really enjoyed the characters and we even got to be entertained by many past favorites. I have both the ebook and audiobook versions and loved the ability to switch between the two so that I could continue this story. The audiobook narrator did a great job!

Loved it.

I did love this book. It does make me want to check the books that I missed by getting the middle one. It was an interesting story it didn't take right off for me but once it did it was worth it. #AudibleObsessionReviewer
