Summary

Devon Sanders, a private investigator known for his efficiency and discretion, is determined to become a master wizard. He returns to the paranormal university ready to learn magic and uncover the history of the castle. Unfortunately, life at Quintessence is never that easy.

When a student dies of no apparent cause, the search for a witness leads Devon to discover there are more secrets buried under Quintessence than he ever realized. In order to save the paranormal world he is now part of, he will face an enemy that can use his own power against him. Devon must rely on more than his exceptional intuition to solve this case.

Magic is elemental.

loved every second

Would you listen to Hungry Earth again? Why?

Yes I will be listening to it again! I love supernatural stories and this one is well written and I enjoy listening to this narrator. I hope there are more books in this series.

Have you listened to any of Todd Menesses’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have, this is just as good as his other performances. I hope to find more from him. I enjoy listening to him. He's easy to listen to and follow and understand what is happening in the book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No it was not a book you want to listen to in one sitting. It's far to long, I recommend this over a span of 5-8 days if you are trying to rush it. I like to enjoy my books and typically on the way to work or lunch breaks.

Any additional comments?

This book is a lot like harry potter meets twilight crossed with a mystery. I am overly excited to have book two in audio and I hope there are more in the works. The elemental series is well written and captivating to the point you don't want to turn off the story to go to bed, you want to keep listening find out what happens next. I especially love that they are at a school for supernatural adults and I wish I had powers of some sort and be written into the story, just wake up and be IN the story.

A Hair Raising Good Time!

Rain Oxford has done it again! I have really come to enjoy all of Rain's work and Hungry Earth, Elemental Book 2 is no different. I had to take a few days longer to listen that I had expected because it does get a little creepy... Hehe... But that's what makes her writing so great. This book is another in a series and I definitely recommend that you try to start from the beginning in order to keep up with the storyline. But, you can absolutely start out of order if you pick this one up and realize that you haven't heard the other books in the series, yet.

I don't want to spoil anything because I suspect that there are more parts in this series to come after that ending(!!!), but Todd Menesses does such a great job voicing all of the characters. The many, many memorable characters Rain includes in the book. It's such a great, entertaining experience to listen in audio book format. I'm sure that I would love this one if I were reading it in Kindle format, but the book lends itself to audio book format so well I would definitely suggest picking it up for easy, on the go listening.

If you like the paranormal and a great mystery, you don't want to miss this one!

Paranormal PI

I really enjoyed this continuation of the story. All of my favorite characters are back for their second semester of adult wizarding school. The ending had me really looking forward to book 3, without killing me with cliffhangers! Lots of excellent paranormal creatures visit this story, some less popular with mainstream fiction, which was a nice change. The narrator did a great job with the story.

the story is good.

I like this series. But I do need to tell anyone who reads this to speed the narration up quite a bit. if you do that then his voice doesn't have time to do the annoying way over dramatic things he does. It makes a huge difference.

First Time I Listened Twice

I have hundreds of audiobooks. This book is the first book I've listened to twice. And I will go to the first book and listen to that one again after writing this review. These two books in this series are well written and the best narration of wit and fantasy drama. The voice, the plot, the creatures... all hit me perfect.

Great book, great series

But of the 5 books in the series, only the first 2 are audiobooks. 😖

Again Loved the story Hated the narrator.

Loved the drama, but it makes it hard to believe when there is so much drama and inflection placed on almost EVERY word.

Sort of a grown up Harry Potter/Maltese Falcon

Interesting premise characters developed nicely.
Narrator had good character voices and was enjoyable to listen too.
I'd read more in a series.

Good continuation from the first book.

If I had to say, ifronuld be my opinion that the first and second book in his series were written pretty much at the same time. I am looking forward to a third book?
