When you've lost everything you love, how do you fight the darkness?

Ava left Istanbul with a new identity, new name, and new magic she could barely control. Laid low by Malachi's sacrifice, she searches for help from the fabled Irina. But will the secretive women of the Irin race welcome or shun her? Ava's origins are still a mystery, and her powers are darker than any they've encountered before.

The Irin world hangs in the balance. And as the children of angels battle their own demons, ancient rivalries among the Fallen threaten to wreak havoc on earth.

Thousand of miles away, a warrior wakes with no memory of his identity or his people. Stumbling through the twisted schemes of fallen angels, ravenous Grigori, and even his own leaders, he must find a way back to the one thing he remembers. A single voice calls him. Malachi has one mission.

"Come back to me."

THE SINGER is the second book in the Irin Chronicles, a contemporary fantasy series from Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Elemental Mysteries.

    Elizabeth Hunter fans have waited months to continue the Irin Ch

    Elizabeth Hunter fans have waited months to continue the Irin Chronicles and the story of Ava & Malachi. Like me, I'm sure many of you wiped tears at the ending of The Scribe, heartbroken by the devastating loss of Malachi. As I settled in to read The Singer, I found myself a bit wary and anxious. I have fallen in love with these characters, shared their love and laughter, felt their pain and heartbreak, suffered and grieved with them. Elizabeth Hunter has the magical ability to breathe life into her characters, propelling them from the page of their fantasy world to capivate you and make you believe, make you care, make you want I turned to page one, took a deep breath and got lost in their world once again...

    The Irin world is in turmoil. The Grigori are increasing their presence in Istanbul, and there's a power play among The Fallen that threatens to destroy everyone. Both Volund and Jaron want Ava, each for reasons of their own, and will stop at nothing to get her as an epic, world-ending battle ramps up between the Ancients. But Ava is unaware...

    "Grief struck at the oddest times. Like a cat, it waited to pounce. She could go about her day, even talk about Malachi, ignoring the black hole that lived inside, then something little would swallow her up." (Ava from The Singer)

    What do you do when you've lost everything - your heart, soul, mate - your reason for living? How do you continue when your other half is missing? Ava is lost, battling the darkness while drowning in her grief...she watched her mate die, killed while fighting to save her. The darkness is closing evil force is stalking her so she seeks refuge among the elusive Irina - a magical race of women who can help her discover and broaden the scope of her magical powers - help her release her voice and finally sing. She is haunted by dreams of her lost love, Malachi...dreams that feel so real, she can sense his breath whispering over her skin, caressing her with words of love. However, Ava's dreams also have a dark side - an ominous presence, always lurking around the shadows, tempting her, calling her, preying upon her mind. Who is luring her into the darkness? Why do they summon her?

    While Ava struggles with grief and darkness, there is a warrior far away, battling his own demons. He has awakened lost, not knowing his own name or where he belongs. As he fights to recapture his memories, his mind is inundated by a woman's mournful plea - "Vashama canem. Come back to me." The warrior's nights are spent pursuing and loving her in dreams, driven by a powerful bond that will not be denied. As his memory slowly returns, the mystical siren calling him in the night continues eluding him. He may no longer remember the woman haunting his dreams and mind, but he knows he loves her and recognizes her as his mate.

    Elizabeth Hunter has created a magnificent world of amazing characters, entangled in a web of deceit, danger, loss, power, politics, and love that will have your heart racing time and time again. She has once again raised the bar in the world of fantasy and totally captivated me. The writing is wonderfully imaginative, enticing you deeper with a plot laden with twists and turns. I was quickly lured into The Singer and couldn't turn pages fast enough to discover what would happen next. Approaching the end, I thought I had a handle on it, Yes...I can live with this...things are good...and then...I read the Epilogue...What?! OMG...I need book 3 now! What a great read! A definite reread! I can't wait for the next and final book of The Irin Chronicles trilogy! Fans of fantasy, paranormal, romance and suspense will love The Singer and the Irin Chronicles. Beautiful! Creative! Brilliant! A must read!

    Beautiful story...

    I love the way Hunter's books spark something in me from the moment I pick up her book. How her words dance around in your head long after you are finished. How her characters become a part of you, embedding in to the very fibers of your being. At least that is how it has always been for me. And those feelings have only gotten stronger with each book she releases. And here I am now, reviewing another book. Another book that I was scared to start only for the mere fact that once I was done, it may be sometime before I can experience these feelings again.

    "I need her," Malachi said. "And she needs-"
    "She needs her mate back!" Rhys snapped. "Right now, you're only a shadow of who she needs."

    So alas, here I am. Finished with THE SINGER and I am in complete and utter awe of Hunter. If you thought you loved these characters in THE SCRIBE, just wait. You are going to be blown away by what they bring to the table in this one. From the beginning my heart was hurting but also joyous. Here we thought we lost Malachi for good at the end of book one and was only given a sliver of hope to tide us over to this one. But to wake up without any recollection of who he is or where he is at? That is where the pain slips in. Snippets of memories resurface here and there and it is enough to get him started on the rediscovery of who he is and where he should go. And to find Ava.

    Ava is really struggling in this one. She is learning all that she can about who she is, but the day she lost Malachi, was the day she lost a huge piece of herself. I think we all did. Right? Am I right? We all hurt right along with her that day. That is how big this book is to me. I loved these characters so much they were like close family. So if Ava was hurting I was hurting. If Malachi was scared of the unknown…I was scared for him too.

    The whole book is absolutely amazing. But it is the end…the epilogue that got me the most. I was thrown for a loop and left gasping. Literally gasping as to what this all means. Game changer. Complete, total game changer. Prepare yourselves now, folks…mentally and emotionally.

    5 Glorious Stars!!
