Pulse-driving paranormal mystery from USA Today Bestseller, Elizabeth Hunter. Darkness comes for everyone, and some fates are inescapable.

For over a thousand years, the legendary sword Laylat al Hisab--the Night's Reckoning--has been lost in the waters of the East China Sea. Forged as a peace offering between two ancient vampires, the sword has eluded treasure hunters, human and immortal alike.

But in time, even the deep gives up its secrets.

When Tenzin's sire hears about the ninth century shipwreck found off the coast of southern China, Zhang Guo realizes he'll need the help of an upstart pirate from Shanghai to retrieve it. And since that pirate has no desire to be in the middle of an ancient war, Cheng calls the only allies who might be able to help him avoid it.

Unfortunately, Tenzin is on one side of the globe and Ben is on the other.

Tenzin knows she'll need Ben's keen mind and political skills to complete the job. She also knows gaining Ben's cooperation won't be an easy task. She'll have to drag him back into the darkness he's been avoiding. Whether Ben knows it or not, his fate is balanced on the edge of a thousand-year-old blade, and one stumble could break everything Tenzin has worked toward.

Night's Reckoning is the third novel in the Elemental Legacy series, a paranormal mystery by Elizabeth Hunter, USA Today bestselling author of the Elemental Mysteries.

Over a thousand years ago a ship was sunk at sea and with it, a symbol of peace, the sword Laylat al Hisab which means the Night’s Reckoning. The sword was made to as a peace offering between Zhang Guo and Arosh. Now that a ninth century shipwreck has been found off the southern coast of China, Zhang hires Cheng to work with Tenzin to recover this priceless artifact.

Tenzin has been avoiding Ben since Puerto Rico and now she knows she will need him on this job if they are going to recover the sword. With the help of Zhang, her sire, Tenzin and Cheng can hire Ben and his friend Fabia to come on the expedition to retrieve the sword.

Tenzin and Ben have one of the most complicated relationships in the elemental world and sometimes even they don’t always know why. Tenzin is stuck in her ways which exasperates Ben to no end and Tenzin who has been alive for thousands of years has a hard time connecting to the modern world, humans and most of all Ben. The magnetism, friendship, and more recently romantic inclinations are what make their relationship one of my favorites in the elemental world. This is the story that Tenzin and Ben fans have been waiting for!
