A little late, but hey, it's here. This is a sequel to a book I read a couple years ago. I have been waiting anxiously for this sequel. The first book was amazing and brought a new, closer to the mythology, take on Mermaids. You can find the review for that book (Ice Massacre) here.
Meela has just returned from the Massacre—the annual attempt to wipe out the mermaids threatening her people’s survival. After forming an unlikely connection with Lysi, a mermaid she was trained to kill, Meela is determined to stop the war between humans and merpeople for good. She knows of a legendary weapon that could bring peace if she uses it against King Adaro, ruler of the Pacific Ocean. But her people have plans for future Massacres and refuse to help her uncover it.
While Meela works in secret to unearth the Host of Eriana, Lysi is held captive under Adaro’s tyranny. Sent to the battlefront, Lysi joins forces with a band of rebels that could either bring her freedom—or have her executed for treason.
Separated by the vast Pacific Ocean, Meela and Lysi must find a way to defeat King Adaro and end the war that has been keeping them apart.
Hanging from the crooked branch of a maple tree wasn't that glamorous-- not that my people would expect from an honoured Massacre survivor. Legs swinging to try and get a foothold, strands of hair clinging to my face, I heaved myself onto the next branch.
I have yet to start this book, but I am really excited to read this book
I scanned the corpses, trying to identify the pieces, or any of the bodies falling away into the depths.
"Find who did this," said a slow, menacing voice. "Bring them to me."
Whaaaa? I can't wait to get to this part.I want to know what's up.
