      Well let me start by disagreeing with the line in the synopsis that says "The Staff and the Blade is a four part stand-alone book". I cannot see anyone really enjoying this book to its fullest without a lot of prior knowledge from previous books in this series. Since the last book was a bit over a year ago I had to move some brain cells around to remember certain things and the action skips over events that took place in previous books so I do not see this book as any type of "stand alone" other [...]

      Like all the books in the series, simply Amazing! I've had this one tucked away on my Kindlewaiting to savor it like a fine wine. And like all the others, I loved it! These stories always challenge my heart, soul, and mind. I'm left with a feeling of fullness, contentment, and alwaysa longing for more. Beautifully done, Elizabeth Hunter! A Page Burning Must Read!

      "Someday you will love a man, and the fire of it will be a violent, dangerous thing."If memory serves me well, this is a forth book by Elizabeth Hunter I've rated so high, and it was exquisite, one of her finest.Damien and Sari's story takes place over hundreds of years, so this book is rightfully split into four parts.DREAMS describes young Sari meeting and falling for Damien, it's romantic and lighthearted, sweet and lovely. GHOSTS strains the depth of their feelings for each other and it's he [...]

      Amazing, heart-wrenching story, beautifully written. Longer review to come.

      I am going to TRY convey how amazing this book is.Our journey spans from Orkney to London to Norway to Istanbul and Prague. It was so exciting experiencing these different parts of the world. An upbeat book with fast paced action not once did the book come across as being dull. A world created that is beautiful and wild but filled with violence and danger.I was intrigued by Sari and Damien and the palpable feelings they had for one another when I read about them in book three, if I remember corr [...]

      Beautifully written! Ms. Hunter surprised me again with yet another fascinating story. I honestly wasn't looking forward to this novel as much (i know, Irin Chronicles is probably my least favorite series of hers), but as soon as I started reading I was truly captivated by Sari and Damien's journey. The last installment was reminiscent of Deborah Harkness's Shadow of Night (one of my personal favorites), so I couldn't help but devour this [The Staff and the Blade] novel. Grand love, epic battles [...]

      We all want someone to love us when we’re difficult to love.We want someone who stands by us when no matter what we do, what we say……How far we go.Damien and Sari have lived through the absolute worst life can throw at us. They have seen loved ones lost, their families ripped asunder, and their very world fracture.And yet… love remains.There are few contemporary authors that have the ability to not only sweep us into a story, but into a world we could believe exists congruently outside o [...]

      Fantastic! I really hope there will be more books in the series.

      Good bookReally good read to continue the series can't wait for the next boo this year. I really like these books

      4 stars After I read the first trilogy of Irin Chronicles (The Scribe, The Singer and The Secret), didn't take me too long to read the next, The Staff and the Blade. Despite the description that said its consist of 4 stand alone novella, The Staff and The Blade can't be read as a stand alone. Since the MCs, Damien and Sari are important characters, their story told in the first three book, and this book will explain their background story. From the first they met, how they become estranged coupl [...]

      *Disclosure: ARC received from the author in exchange for a honest review. Review originally featured on Wicked Scribes*A hauntingly beautiful tale of love, suffering, sacrifice, and ultimately forgiveness that spans centuries.Ever since Sari and Damien did battle in a meadow in "The Singer" and Damien held back (some) so that Sari could vent her rage on him, I have been dying to read their story. As they both appear as important secondary characters in Malachi and Ava's story it is strongly rec [...]

    13. Susan Swanson on said:

      I just love this series. I love the characters and the world they inhabit. And this entry in the series does not disappoint. Taking a different approach than the first 3 books, this book jumps back in time to the beginning of the relationship between 2 secondary characters from the series. Diving deeply into the themes of grief and forgiveness, this book paints a relationship over the long term. There is certainly romance and politics and other themes common from the entire series. But this book [...]

      4+ stars = I really liked it. From the previous Irin books we've seen Damien and Sari and already know that theirs was not an easy mating - they are mates and connected but not always together. Here their story is told in four 'books' (Dream, Ghosts, Memories, Visions.) The Staff and the Blade starts hundreds of years before the Irin trilogy (The Scribe, The Singer, and the Secret) and continues afterwards, with Memories and Visions overlapping the The Singer and the Secret just a bit. At the st [...]

      Audiobook & ebook review: The Staff and The Blade is Damien and Sari’s story. The book takes you back to the beginning of their relationship, the reason for their separation and hurt feelings, through Ava’s meeting the fabled Irina, and Damien’s family. The story is an extraordinary tale of guilt, love, happiness, battles, pain, revenge, and joy. The characters are believable. You’ll laugh and cry. Jay Britton did a good job. I turned the speed of the audiobook to 1.25x since the pau [...]

      First let me say, I was given an ARC of The Staff and the Blade for an honest review.I'm not actually sure where to begin with this review. I am a huge fan of all things Elizabeth Hunter, so when I got a chance to get my hands on this book I was over the moon. To begin, this is the fourth book in the Irin Chronicles series and it is a massive book, that only made me happier as I can't get enough of devouring her words. This is Damien and Sari's story. A while ago Ms. Hunter sent out an email abo [...]

      I have loved this series. Absolutely loved it. The very idea of soul mates.gs who are actually adept at clearly identifying their soul mates is incredibly romantic. My heart literally squeezes in my chest when I read how each of these couples discover one another. This particular installment contained the history of the remarkable relationship of two of the most fascinating characters, Damien and Sari. As the Watcher, Damien has served as the leader of our Irin characters. Sari has taken the rol [...]

      “I received an ARC for review courtesy of the author. This is an honest, unpaid review and my opinions are my own.”“In order to know where you’re going, you’ve got to understand where you’ve been.” I’m not sure if this is a direct quote that I’ve heard before, or if I just made it up, but regardless, it’s very fitting for The Staff and the Blade. Damien and Sari. *sigh* Throughout the Irin Chronicles series, we’ve heard bits and pieces of their union and how essential it wa [...]

    19. Rosanna on said:

      I was anxious to read the story of Sari and Damien. I didn't know how the story would play out but of course Mrs Hunter played it beautifully. I love the way the story started before they knew each other. How they slowly got to know each other. How their love became explosive once they did. I'm happy that we get to meet Tala and her mate Alexandr. How we live through their story too. How important they truly were to the story line and how the death of Tala is deeply felt by both Sari and Damien. [...]

    20. Debra on said:

      I loved this book! The series is phenomenal. It is an epic story of love, angst, tragedy and triumph told over a period of hundreds of years. In my humble opinion only, I do not feel it is a stand-alone book as it is marketed to be. It is the fourth story in The Irin Chronicles. I think it is advantageous to read one through three before reading The Staff and The Blade. Damien and Sari both are in the first three books and you get some good hints as to what happens to them. But, this world is co [...]

    21. The Book Worm on said:

      The Staff and the Blade is book four in the Irin Chronicles Series and, in my opinion, is the best one so far. It is an epic story of war, magic, love and pain that spans different worlds and several centuries. The Staff and the Blade comes in four parts and is not necessarily an easy book to read. You should expect pain and violence, but also a love so strong that survives all obstacles. It is cleverly inter-weaved with the previous three books but can be perfectly read as a stand alone story ( [...]

    22. Elizabeth Anne Kott on said:

      Love, love, LOVED this book!I really appreciate seeing the arc of Damien and Sari's love story that spans from before the other Irin books, through them, and past them so far. Divided into four parts, I loved each section for different reasons, and really enjoyed seeing the Irin history through a new perspective. If you haven't read the other three Irin books yet, that is certainly where you should start; I don't think this book is intended to be read before the others or slipped into the overal [...]

    23. Patti on said:

      Oh Elizabeth.you never disappoint!!!While some parts of this book were almost too painful to readSari and Damien's story was so intense, and beautiful. I loved how Elizabeth wove all of the other characters into this book as wellopening the door for future stories to be told. Like most avid readers, there are several authors on my short listElizabeth is at the top! I honestly feel as if she shares a part of herself with every new book! Thank you!!!

    24. Janine on said:

      I received an ARC for an honest review. And honestly, I LOVED it! Another amazing installment of the Irin Chronicles by Elizabeth Hunter! The metaphorical cup that is the Staff & The Blade is overflowing into the saucer with fire and passion. The journey to love for Damien and Sari held me captive from beginning to end. No surprise that it was an effortless read. It's Elizabeth Hunter, after all.

    25. Fran Goldfinger on said:

      One of the bestThis book by Elizabeth Hunter is one of her best. It filled in a lot of gaps that were missing from her Scribe books. It filled in a number of missing pieces and it went beyond the other ones. She fid a very good job of linking all of the jumps through history. I really enjoyed this book. You should totally read it if you liked her Scribe books.

    26. Debi on said:

      I can't say anything that I haven't said about Elizabeth's books before. Amazing. Breathtaking. So much passion and love that I had to stretch my reading out more then usual. I hurt with Sari and Damien. The strength is amazing.

      I never thought i would like a paranormal series but I love this one. It's more about the relationship between characters then the paranormal aspect of the book.
