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.
First review in a long time.
I have been waiting to read this book since I heard there was going to be a sequel to Ice Massacre. This was one of the best sequel books I have read in a long time. Full of some really great character development from the MC's and some of the side characters that for me were a little forgettable in the first book. I kind of feel like I've been waiting forever for this book, but it's only barely been a couple of years.
I really liked seeing what was happening on Lysi's side of this war. I loved getting to know her character better and her world and what it means for the other mermaids and mermen to be under Adaro's rule. It really emphasized that it's not all black and white.
The mythology in this series is so well done and thought out, I am having a really hard time talking about this book without spoiling anything. But I highly recommend this series, it's so good and I can't wait for the third book.
