Bishop’s Flight, book four in the Elemental Covenant series, took me on a journey filled with suspense, vampire politics and a little sexy time on the side. I came into the world of Elemental Vampires rather late and in quite a haphazard manner. Book 2, Martyr’s Promise, was my first read of the series, followed by book 4. Fortunately, the books can stand on their own, however, after spending time in this world. I am eager to learn how it all started.

Four nights. Three days. The human son of two powerful vampires has been taken from his home, and if Carwyn and Brigid can’t find him, the delicate balance of power in an immortal haven might just go up in flames.
Las Vegas holds a special appeal in the immortal world. It’s a city of darkness, debauchery, and vice; a city where inhibitions are low and blood runs hot.Rose Di Marco and Agnes Wong have been running Sin City as immortal bosses for nearly a century, but when their son is kidnapped, they turn to their neighbors for help.
Carwyn and Brigid know how to find the lost, but what they don’t know is why Zasha Sokholov, a Siberian fire vampire and offshoot of an old crime family, became fixated on them. Carwyn has his suspicions, but all Brigid can think about is a fifteen-year-old boy who’s been taken as bait. She’ll need a clear head and the help of some unexpected allies to find him.
Bishop’s Flight is the fourth book in the Elemental Covenant series by Elizabeth Hunter, ten-time USA Today Bestselling author of the Irin Chronicles and the Elemental Mysteries.
“We may try to run from our past, but it finds us. We can put continents—even millennia—between us, but in the end, the sins of the fathers will come back to visit.”

In this instalment, Brigid and Carwyn face finding the location of a kidnapped human teenage boy. The setting is Las Vegas, and the vampire leaders of the city are the boy’s adoptive parents. The leaders received proof of life with a deadline to hand over their city or the boy will die. Now, Carwyn and Brigid find themselves in a race against time to locate the boy before it’s too late.
While searching for clues, to aid in their investigation, Carwyn and Brigid discovered that the kidnapping was a ploy to capture Brigid’s attention. The situation grew more intense, which pushed Brigid into taking calculated risks.
The game of chess played a pivotal role in the story. The game is all about strategy, and we see how well the rules were applied. It helped the kidnapped victim to maintain his mental composure in the face of danger.
Brigid and Carwyn’s love for each other shined throughout the story. I loved how well they worked together and how in tuned they were to each other. It’s interesting to know that Carwyn was a former priest, while Brigid was a former heroin addict.
Bishop’s Flight ended with the main plot wrapping up, however the danger to Brigid and Carwyn remains. It left readers wondering what will happen next, and will this dynamic couple but an end to the reign of terror in the next instalment.
