Mermaid, Sarina Neri, is desperate to regain her sister's soul. And she knows who has it – the legendary sea hag, Melusine. But the hag wants something in exchange – a man who can survive life in her realm, deep under the sea.
After decades searching, Sarina has found such a man, vampire Nolan Moore. Unfortunately, unknown to Sarina, Nolan wants the soul too, for himself. Who will survive their high seas adventure? The mermaid, the vampire, or will love save them both?

An interesting take in the vampire novels, however I particularly love the more true to the original fable version of mermaids. It was fun interesting and had a slow but well paced story. The characters felt real and the romance didn’t overshadow the rest of the book.
I had quite high hopes for this novel, since the story was a little different to what I have come across before. I enjoyed reading it, and it didn’t take long to read either, but I did not feel drawn in as I would have expected. The characters seemed distant, perhaps intentionally due to their nature, but I just could not sustain that personal connection that I like to develop when I read a book. I probably identified best with the vampire Nolan, but I feel that overall the book could have done with a little more description in places, just to draw the reader in more closely. Still, I intend to try out some of the author’s other books, so it wasn’t that bad in the end!
