Sharp, sleek, and golden. Like the dagger she has worn since childhood, eighteen-year-old Aeva is all three of these things. But there is something else that this mermaid and her prized weapon share – they are both hunted.


Hidden within the caves off Iceland’s dark shore, Aeva waits to take her place as the next ruler of the Mermaids. But when Aeva uses her potent and alluring song to save a drowning human, she disrupts a delicate balance. Realizing she has unexpectedly bound herself to Gunnar, Aeva is torn between duty and love.


Aeva severs one life to begin another, and soon finds herself not only rejected by the sea, but also stalked by an old enemy. As the worlds of myth and man intertwine, Aeva will challenge fate to protect her own sacred relic and the man she loves.


But legend and lies cast an intricate net. With time and safety quickly unraveling for Aeva and Gunnar, there is only one clear course: Find and defeat Delphine before she can shift again.

    Great Story

    *Disclaimer: I received a copy of this from Xpresso in exchanged for a fair and honest review. * Aeva suffered the devastating loss of both her parents when she was just 8 years old. She was also responsible for defeating the monster created to kill nearly her entire kingdom. She trains for 10 years to take over the role as ruler of her kingdom. What will happen when she takes over? How will she overcome falling in love with a human, which is absolutely forbidden? Can Aeva put her past behind her to protect her kingdom and defeat the shape shifter once and forall? This was a beautiful and well written story. The details were incredible. The author didn’t fail in describing the surroundings, the scenery, the sea life, and the characters. It was like taking a dive in the ocean and seeing everything with your own eyes but magnified several times. Her description made this story more fun to read as you could disappear from reality for a little bit. The darkness that plays into the story in the form of a shape shifter adds some thrill and suspense to the story. This adds the “sit on the edge of your seat” that we all love to have in books. This kept me reading to see what was going to happen next and how Aeva was going to handle it. I also loved the love story of the book. A mermaid falls in love with a human. This specific part takes me back to my kid days and reminds me of “The Little Mermaid”. It was my favorite movie so this addition to an already incredible book just made my day and made me love it even more. Although this story was a long one, it was a good read. I would definitely recommend it to you!
