Description

He's one human caught in a tangled maze of theft, politics, magic, and blood. In other words, it's just another night.

Benjamin Vecchio escaped a chaotic childhood and grew to adulthood under the protection and training of one of the Elemental world's most feared vampire assassins. He's traveled the world and battled immortal enemies.

But everyone has to go home sometime.

New York means new opportunities and allies for Ben and his vampire partner, Tenzin. It also means new politics and new threats. Their antiquities business is taking off, and their client list is growing. When Ben is challenged to find a painting lost since the second world war, he jumps at the chance. This job will keep him closer to home, but it might just land him in hot water with the insular clan of earth vampires who run Manhattan.

Tenzin knew the painting would be trouble before she laid eyes on it, but she can't deny the challenge intrigues her. Human laws mean little to a vampire with a few millennia behind her, and Tenzin misses the rush of taking what isn't hers.

But nothing is more dangerous than a human with half the story, and Ben and Tenzin might end up risking their reputations and their lives before they escape the Midnight Labyrinth.

Midnight Labyrinth is the first book in an all new contemporary fantasy series by Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Elemental Mysteries and the Irin Chronicles.

Keeps You Guessing Whodunit - Loaded with Humor

I love the Elemental World Elizabeth Hunter created, first in Mysteries, then in World and now in Legacy. I am a very selective reader of fantasy. Much of it is too complicated. I get so bogged down in the world building and trying to keep track of who has what kinds of special powers, I lose track of the plot. But Hunter got her World right in her very first book, she added some unique twists to widely recognizable fantasy types, didn't over complicate it, made the characters engaging and entertaining and included libraries and books as central to the plot line. And the humor.

This is the 4th story in the Ben and Tenzin line, following the conception and launch of their lost artifacts recovery business. The only possible thing that could muddy up the Elemental Legacy series is the relationship between Ben and Tenzin. Hunter seems to realize this and while there is an attraction, she is proceeding cautiously so far. Seeing them as anything more than good friends, tempting as it sounds, might just hit the wrong note. The difference between them is so vast and the fact that she knew him when he was quite young, might make a relationship hard to swallow. Not sure why I feel that way.

This was a great plot, it kept me guessing, the mystery and the planning kept me engaged. As usual, there was lots of humor. I wish some of the other characters from prior books were more involved. I really liked the introduction of Ben's high school sweetheart. Her budding friendship with Tenzin and relationship with Gavin was great. I hope she shows up in future books.

I still miss Dina Pearlman narrating these books. But Sean William Doyle does a good job.

the hashtag metoo bit that dragged on for 5 chapters too long dropped it 1.5 stars.

Expectations

The narrator kept interest in what is already a well written story. The romantic relationship I expected to hear more about did not occur. A small number of inferences and a very minute action scene with the main characters still left the reader questioning if a relationship would take place. Apparently this will be another series exploring relationships.

I love Benzin

I have to be honest. I'm partial to Dina Pearlman, she really brings the characters to life. Sean is good but I don't feel myself being pulled in like I am with Dina. The story is great, and I'll surely get the next one regardless of who narrate it.

Tenzin and Ben in the Big Apple

Ben finds himself falling for a beautiful maiden in distress, one who comes with a mystery and of course something worth a lot of $$. Tenzin is there creating chaos and being the best pain-in-the-ass anyone could ask for and we love her for it.
This book is definitely a page turner or at least one that I couldn't stop listening to. There is an introduction of a new assistant in this book so we can look forward to more interesting ways this character will be used in up coming stories. I believe Ms. Hunter said there are going to be 5 Ben& Tenzin stories. I hope there will be much more. MORE Please, I love these stories!

Dang that was excellent!

Ben & Tenzin stories never fail to entertain and leave the readers/audiobook listeners begging for more. The characters are brilliantly written and the story executed perfectly. The reader/listener is provided suspense, a couple of love interests, a heist, domestic violence, vampire politics, deception that will likely leave one main character hesitant to start future relationships, and a gauranteed good read that you will wish to finish in one setting. I love Chloe & Gavin as a couple too! Awesome work! The narrator did an excellent job with providing distinct voices for each character, tone inflections, & speed of reading.

Nice but not exciting.

I have to say it took me at least 4 chapters to get into the story. Maybe because I haven't listened to the original series? So the first third of the book was boring. After that the story was funny and entertaining. The narrator was okay. But I didn't like the way he read Gavin. I think he tried too hard to sound like a Scottish Highlander puffing his chest. (All the time. Even when he should have sounded seductive) Than there was this thing with French names. Every time he said Aimelee! I wanted to scream. I don't have the printed version of the book, so I don't know how the name was written, but I guess it was Amélie. How could he pronounce it so wrong? So, no, he would not be my first choice for the other parts of the series.
