Blurb: A blind merman fleeing the sunken city of Atlantis is torn between the family he left behind and the love he swims toward.
When Dax lost his family to a shark attack he swam away from everything he had ever known. Now he has come to Atlantis, hoping to reconnect with those he left behind. When he finds his birth clan torn apart, he realizes his journey is just beginning.
Kai is an Oracle, a blind merman, who only has sight when he has a vision. Atlantis, a sanctuary for so many mer people, is his prison. Desperation drives him to beg the Atlantean Goddess of Love for help.
With the goddess’s promise of love to tempt him, Kai persuades Dax to take him along when he leaves the sunken city.
Although Dax has some reservations about traveling through the ocean with a blind merman in tow, he quickly discovers Kai isn’t as helpless as he appears. Attraction comes easy, but Kai doesn’t seem to feel the same way.
Kai knows he must seduce Dax if he hopes to win his heart, but his inexperience may be his downfall. With Dax’s former lover at the end of their journey, he knows time is running out.
A goddess can only help so much, especially when another immortal would see them part. If the two stubborn mermen want a life together, they will have to learn to communicate and fight for their love.
Review: L.M. Brown is back with her sexy and sweet mermen, the ancient city of Atlantis, and fickle, immortal gods. Fair warning, this is not a stand-alone novel and you are really doing yourself a disservice if you haven’t indulged in these books. The pictures the novels paint are colourful and real, emotional and funny.
Brown takes old world legends and brings new life to them by mixing elements of the Fae and Greek tales of gods and their mortal playthings. The world building is breathtaking, and while there is always a happy ending, it is well fought for and deserved. No drama or consequences that are hand waved or white washed here, these characters fight for and win their happy ever after.
Characters from the previous books make a return to enhance Dax and Kai’s story, and further the overall arching plot of the plight of the merfolk. Of all the mermen and mortals that Brown has introduced, each pairing, and in once case the triad, has always been my favorite—until the next book comes along. Kai and Dax are no exception.
Thank you to the author for another magnificent tale in this incredible world. I am looking forward to the next time you return to the sea.
