About the Book:

Tempest Maguire is happy with her decision to embrace her mermaid nature and live among her mother’s clan within the ocean’s depths. Even though training to one day ascend the throne for the aging mermaid queen is rigorous, she finds refuge in the arms of Kona, the selkie who first opened her up to her mermaid side. But when word comes that one of her brothers has been gravely injured on land, Tempest immediately rushes to his side—which also brings her back to her old flame, Mark. And in her absence, a deadly battle begins raging at the hands of Tempest’s old nemesis, the sea witch Tiamat. As the dangerous war erupts, Tempest’s two loves—Kona and Mark, sea and land—will collide for the first time, both to protect her and to force her to choose.

Reviews PlateDeebs continues to impress me with her elegant ability to create a magic mermaid story. Many attempts at such a story will seem to “cheesy”, for lack of a better word, and remain overall realistic. The tempest series seems to overcome many of the obstacles, and create not only a realistic like story, but one that readers will enjoy imagining. After the close of Tempest Rising I was anxious to see where book two would take us after Tempest made the decision to choose the sea. It was interesting to see her settling into life as a mermaid queen heir, but as interesting to see her return to land for a reunion with past characters. On the downside I was a bit frustrated with this development in the sense of the continuation of the love triage. Upon conclusion of book one I was ecstatic with Tempest choosing Kona, but with the developments of this book it seemed as though the author was rehashing this entire scenario again. Readers such as myself might find this to a tired complication. As Tempest continues to learn her powers she will have a battle of honing her skills for the ultimate show down with Tiamat. The loved action packed sequences from Tempest Rising continue throughout this sequel; leaving readers with a open ended conclusion that hints for a third book.
