These books are unlike anything I've ever read before.
We start with Yara helping her Uncle during a hurricane when a stranger comes to help. She awakens to a new world, ripped from her boyfriend Rownan and the life she's always known. Things aren't always what they seem. Suddenly no one in her life are who she thought they were and she has a destiny that leads to an unfulfilled prophecy. The triple eighteen is coming and lucky her, she's the solution...or is she?
Treygan is sent to help Yara, but he's not expecting someone so stubborn or for her to have a boyfriend. How can you be attracted to someone yet driven insanely nuts by them at the same time? Will he ever get her to appreciate the gift she's been given or to trust him that not everything she was told was the truth?
The gate is opened, but Vienna isn't in Rathe. She has tried to go another route to find Rownan, Harte. This leads Rownan, Yara, and Treygan into the depths of hell to see if they can find Vienna before it's too late not only for her, but them as well. They will be put to the test in every way imaginable. Ghosts of the pasts, demons, and every scary facet you can imagine they face.
Will they make it out alive or will all die for the ultimate thing worth fighting for...
I am not new to paranormal books, but I am new to mermaid books. This isn't even a typical mermaid book though, as we have sirens, selkies, and gorgons. There are so many different species and mixtures it keeps everything interesting. You are guaranteed not to get bored with this series. It is more adventure than romance and what romantic situations there are happen to be very PG. This makes it an excellent YA book. It took me a little longer to read than my normal book as I was trying to understand the new "species" that I hadn't read about previously, but even at that I was able to read each book in about two days. I now have a new addiction to add to my many other book loves.
Treygan is a wonderful character. He is very strong and caring. It was nice that he was vulnerable without being insecure. Yara is awesome from the start though I wanted to smack her for being so gullible in the first book. Of course, she becomes even more kickass at the end of book one and continues as only she can into book 2. Even through physical torture she still is such a true friend that she will carry on to help Rownan after he had betrayed her than helped her. Yes, Rownan is a very complex man, er...selkie. I'm not sure I ever know what to expect from him.
This book is 5 stars and perfect for teens or adults.
If you love traveling to new world and learning a little about the Gods, this is the series for you.
