"We of Scarlock, we stick together. That is how we survive."

Nereia is faced with a difficult choice - accept the Other Nereia and stay to protect Mary, or drift away from the beating Copeland gave her. The Other Nereia talks of making the dark waters sweet again, instead of the bitter waters they have become, and Nereia is tasked with completing this. Confused but determined, Nereia must accept that she still has some part yet to play...

Copeland has a plan for Blakey, and Blakey doesn't think he...more
If I hoped for a more complete ending from this second of J.A. Clement’s On Dark Shores series I might be disappointed. But Nereia’s tale does come to a fascinating turning point and the oddly ambiguous bad guy, Blakey, begins his approach to redemption. Meanwhile the Mother lies waiting in the wings and armies start to gather, and I'm hooked.

The world of this series is nicely complete with history, present and future waiting to unfold. Characters interact with pleasing dialog and genuine feelin...more

"The Other Nereia" is the second novel in J.A. Clement's On Dark Shores series which follows on directly from the finale of the first novel entitled "The Lady" which I have previously read. As Nereia lies unconscious, recovering from the injuries inflicted by the nefarious Copeland, her mind is taken to another plane of existence where she meets a being that appears to looks exactly like her. This other Nereia wants help to restore the damage within her own world, but this help is based around t...more

To be honest, I have book one, but I just have not found the time to sit down and read it (sorry JA!!!), so I started book two with a lot of questions. I haven't really gotten to know the characters previously, and I literally dropped in the middle of the story. But, when I got about halfway through, I was completely immersed. I still have questions, and you can be sure I'll be reading book one very soon, but book two was enough to get me hooked on the series. It certainly left me wanting more…...more
Things are about to get darker and stranger in Scarlock as more forces come into play. No longer is it just Mr. Copeland, the thug who runs the town, whom our heroes have to worry about. An army, a demon and a fugitive enter the streets of this sleepy seaside town. But that’s not Nereia’s biggest worry.

Continuing with the same elegant writing of #1 in the series, the sequel maintains the tension and the mystery, adding other elements to it. We continue to learn more about the characters and thei...more
I read and reviewed the first book in this series The Lady just over a year ago so it was good to find time to see where the story was heading, as it had ended at a climactic moment. This novella picks up where the first left off, but to avoid creating a spoiler for anyone who plans to read the first book I'll keep it vague.

The mood in Scarlock is changing; fear now mingles with hope. Moneylender Copeland is showing signs of becoming ever more unpredictable and he is now turning on even those cl...more
The second volume in the On Dark Shores series, The Other Nereia, lives up to the promise of the first book and expands the story in an ever-twisting spiral of strange and secretive happenings. Like the first book, it is a plethora of sparkling language and delicately woven story.

The Other Nereia begins where the first book ended, with the immediate gathering of the dangling plot threads from The Lady. From there we see the consequences of Nereia’s recovery, Copeland’s continued descent into mad...more
J.A. Clement is the author for the novel "The Other Nereia". "The Other Nereia" is book no 2 of the "On Dark Shores" serial. I see an omnibus of books no. 1 and no. 2 has been released.

I enjoyed "The Other Nereia" as much as I enjoyed "The Lady". Clement kept her minor-tone throughout the novel. Flowing authors make my reading experience about as enjoyable as sinking under water. There is just something about feeling the water close over my head that makes my head so happy it wants to stay there...more
