A Mermaid and a pirate. Lorelei and Quinn, the two unlikeliest pair, yet the one who were right together.
The story went thus. Quinn was shipwrecked and he blamed Lorelei. Together they went to the forbidden island, rather Lorelei was Quinn’s prisoner. Both had a past and lorelei’s father, Poseidon, wanted to marry her off for his nefarious reasons. Lorelei and her sisters needed to find a solution, and Quinn was it.
A powerful debut by author Kimberly Cale, I found both the characters quite interesting and powerful, especially in the latter scenes. But it was to Lorelei that I was drawn to. The author had etched her character with a loving hand, making her both strong and vulnerable.
Love between the two blosommed slowly, but it demanded great sacrifices. Magic played its part and mythology paved its way. Some even coursed through the mighty waves, some appeared in the middle of the woods.
Emotions were written with a deft hand, light yet poignant. The chemistry between the main characters was sensuous and romantic. The alternate play between the fun filled and intense scenes hit me hard, but the author never allowed it to go overboard.
Plot twists and action along with sisterly bonds and magic made this book UNPUTDOWNABLETweet
A must read for lovers of mythology and fantasy.
