Fantastic Series - I just cant get enough. After reading these 4 stories, I'm an addicting fan. I look forward to the next installments. It's a given that I love mermaid stories but these stories have a built history behind them from not only the previous books but the author gives a insight to their past that is just heart breaking and in her stories they get redemption in their soul searching truth with their true mates.

Hot Books!

*voluntarily and honestly reviewed the ARC I received*

This was my first book to the author, and her story on mermen and everything they've been through totally blew my mind. I loved the writing style, the way it caught me up with everything despite coming in a book late. I also enjoyed the characters and how everyone acted. It was silly, embarrassing, totally hot and overall engrossing. I had to get the other book.

Words are things, but actions speak louder. This was the valuable lesson learned by the new Queen of Atlantis. Who does "more" with her kisses salute than she ever thought she could. As a person who knows a little ASL I appreciate the shout out joke to those who sign, but it is also a metaphor, I think as well. Because kisses are usually a sign of love of some form whether acceptance, welcome, or some other form of affection and those who give and receive them become more, are more because of th ...more

Sacrificed to the Sea Lord (Lords of Atlantis Book 2) Kindle Edition
by Starla Night 
I received an ARC in return for honest review.

Starla Night's second Atlantis offering reminds me of walking and playing the tidal pools on the San Juan Islands in the Puget Sound. Everywhere there is something new and surprising.

Whether it is a heroine who is a strong as she is unsure or the warriors who are unsure how to protect their newfound queen, Night does not fail to delight.

This review is written after listening to the audio version of this book.

This is the second book in what I think is a really good series. I loved the first book which was the first time I'd come across a merman! This book is as good if not a little better as we learn about their world and their problems. In this book the main characters are Kadir, he is King and was imprisoned by the Old Guard for his belief in trying to find modern wives for himself and his warriors. He has now been freed by lo

Another soul shattering, AMAZING, Sweet, and yes, sexy romance with another SUPER GORGEOUS merman! OMG Starla Night has did it AGAIN with Sacrificed To The Sea Lord. She has made me fall in LOVE with the story, the characters, the sea all in the space of a few sentences. These merman are 100% ADDICTING! An old-world charm with gorgeous bodies, protective sides that will have you swooning, and the way they can make love to their queens just leave my heart truly h

King Kadir of Atlantis, came to the surface to find a modern bride to be his queen. He signed a contract with Van Cartier Cosmetics for a bride in exchange for 100 sea opals. The Sea Opals have healing properties, but the Mer use them as mating jewels. With Atlantis being such a young place, their tree wasn't old enough to make sea opals so all the Mer gave their opals to the King so he could find his bride. Van Cartier Cosmetics held a competition, like a beauty contest, and Kadir was to choose ...more

This second book of the Lords of Atlantis series is even better than the first one. There is a lot more action and excitement in this book. The author shows an amazing talent describing the life at the bottom of the ocean. It's easy for the reader to imagine this sparkling ocean life with all the fish, mammals, and plants. The characters in the story are well developed. They have their ups and downs like everyone else. That I got frustrated with the heroine only shows that the author did an exce ...more

Elyssa Cartier is accident prone. Her self confidence has been battered down over the years by a family member. The pageant for the Mer to meet prospective brides is under way. She has been ordered to stay away by her aunt but her cousin needs her. There are so many rules to keep from offending them. The human world needs the sea opals and the Mer need brides.
King Kadir must be the first to find a worthy queen, so that they can bring his city under the sea to life. He can see the resonance of h

Fall in love with a king and his queen

I loved this story. Seriously.
1. The author managed to really capture the problems that occur when two people from different cultures and languages come together for a relationship. I know this because I've had this struggle. Here is a real life example: my boyfriend of two weeks told me he loved me. His native language was French. In French, je t'aime can mean anything from "I like you" to " I love you". Scared the crap out of me when he told me he loved m

Really Great 2ND Book

Totally recommend. Loved the story and all the characters. This 2nd book is sooo much better than the 1st in this series. It had plenty of action and enough drama to keep you turning those pages. I actually read this in a one sitting. No sleep until dawn, when I read the last page (good book hangover).
Only cons I can find are a few typos and the bad descriptive words in the bedroom scenes. Now I'm almost 50 yrs old and I love a good sexy, steamy romantic bedroom scene. I've
I borrowed a collection of these books through KU, and am unfortunately unable to share highlights on specific books because of that.

This book was good, perhaps not as good as the first in the series, but I enjoyed it a lot.
My main drawback from a better rating is the sheer lack of communication. The mer can SEE inner light when it brightens and dims, and yet still somehow react with absolute drama and ultimatums over misunderstandings. And omg talk about men who can't understand when a woman

Sacrificed to the Sea Lord by Starla Night is a wonderful book and an amazing read. This is book 2 in The Lords of Atlantis Series but could very easily be read as a standalone. Although I, don't know why you would want to once you start . Ms. Night writes very well and you are very soon engrossed in this magical fantasy world she has created. I love how the heroines of these books come across as so real. Elyssa is a klutz that is always saying or doing the wrong thing. She lacks confidence in h ...more

There were a couple of errors in the text that were too glaring to overlook: The story of Pocahontas was attributed to Sacajawea, and the blades that were used by the mermen were made of adamantium. Adamantium is a fictional metal created in the Marvel series X-Men. Wolverine has adamantium claws. I guess I was just surprised to see these (especially the adamantium) in the text.

I wished there was a little more character development and heart in the story. At times, it felt a little bare bones. I

Okay, first off, I have to say, I was very excited for this book. I loved the first in the series. This series has a great concept and a new take on the mythology of mer-folk. But this second book, maybe call it the sophomore slump, dragged for me through the first sixty percent. It felt like too much repeating of the same points over and over again that did not move the plot forward. After that sixty percent point, the plot suddenly kicked into overdrive and became exciting and fun. The conclus ...more
Sea Lords 1

When I first selected this book, I wasn't sure if I hadn't made a mistake. Sea Lords didn't sound like a good premise for a story but was I ever wrong. The storyline followed the courtship of Elyssa, a girl who was always a bit of a misfit and Kadin, a merman warrior who was King of Atlantis. Ladin and a group of ferment warriors wanted to start a new city where the former city of Atlantis was. But first they needed a queen. So, they made a deal with the head of a cosmetic firm to tra

I enjoyed the second book in the series much better than the first with the female lead, Elyssa. She was beautiful but clumsy, never seeming to be able to do anything right. I like how her character evolved and the mer men in the castle seemed to respect her when they saw how she was trying so hard to succeed as the queen.
I actually liked Elyssa better than Kadir. He just didn't seem to "get" some of the things that Elyssa was doing. Maybe it was a culture barrier type thing.

Kadir is the mer King of Atlantis, an old city being revitalized. As a first step, he is seeking a human woman to be his Queen. A deal is struck and a pageant is planned to provide a pool of willing candidates for the position. Elyssa works behind the scene to make the pageant a success. However, through her bumbling clumsiness, Kadir chooses her to be his Queen. Loved the struggles she experienced in transforming into a mermaid and fitting into mer society. However, there is a traitor seeking t ...more

The Mermen have arrived from Atlantis needing a bride for King Kadir. The beautiful, cultured women are lining up for the chance. Kadir wants more. He wants a Queen. Elyssa was warned to stay away from the pageant, but Aya wanted her there, so she went. Elyssa is endearing, works well with people on a personal level, and is overly klutzy. This is all stemmed form her incredibly low self esteem that has been purposefully bolstered. Kadir can not seem to communicate fully with her and most of that ...more

Read with Kindle Unlimited.
2 & 1/2 stars rounded up.
I read book 1, but still felt lost on this book (book 2). This really felt like a draft (not a rough draft, but not a final draft either), that wasn’t elaborated on to make it a polished finished book. There were a lot of things lightly mentioned, but nothing was really explained to help fill in the gaps in both world building & the plot. There were also some contradictory things going on in the story that pulled me out of it. I got really tire

This was another great offering from "the deep" by Starla Night. The continuity from book 1 flowed smoothly and effortlessly into this second installment in the series. As Lucy and Torun did in their story, Elyssa and Kadir make this tale a memorable and very enjoyable read. Once again, the characters were personally-identifiable, immensely interesting and quite endearing. The plot line was captivating, well-paced and very well-written. Night has really made the concept of Mer-Shifters work! Bri ...more

ARC - I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest!
King Kadir needed a Queen
Elyssa was not sure if she could be a queen.
She was clumsy, and a little low self-esteem.
( Her aunt did a number on her. a total bitch)
Her parents loved Elyssa, but they did not fight for her either.
What kind of parents do not fight / protect their child?
Regardless of her parents + her aunt, Elyssa found her inner strength.
She will learn to be a queen.
There were misunderstandin

Inner Strength

Enjoy Book 2 as much as I enjoyed book one. Elyssa and Kadir made for an interesting read. The author has done a great job and keeping the story flowing from one book to the next. You can picture the characters as you read about them and their surroundings​.

Happiness and betrayal are just some of the things they will face as they progress towards building Atlantis. Faith and believing in each other will be the strongest test they will face.

She starts out shy, insecure, put down by a bitch aunt. And as time goes along she not only finds herself she finds out a lot more about herself. I love these mermen and would love to be her. The king has his problems too. They have a huge roller coaster ride. I won't say anymore. I highly recommend it. It is one of my favorite series. I get started and can't put them down. I was given a review copy and voluntarily review it.

Luv it

Mermen can be a hard character to do justice, but this author has done a beautiful job bringing these mermen and their world to life. I loved the first book and this one too. These characters have their own personalities and it shows. And the house guardiAns are adorable - I'll take 2 lol. Can't wait to read more about these mermen, their world and Atlantis. Definitely give this book a try you won't regret it

Wow! What an awesome adventure

I really enjoyed this book too. The adventures I've been on from your first book, to this one and cannot wait for book three. I've read so many series of Bears, Lions, Dragons, Panthers, Wolves, Birds, Gorillas, Snakes and Coyotes. Your 3 book series caught my eye, because I never came across Marine Warriors aka Mermen.
Thank you again for an amazing adventure. Off to dive into book three

What a great storyline featuring a girl that overcomes her innermost fears and becomes a queen, and a male that learns that he has to lose everything to gain it all. This book is filled with adventure, personal growth, danger and romance. The characters are endearing are endearing and well developed. The characters from book 1 continue to have a presence. I can't wait to see what adventures book 3 brings!

I liked this book even more than the first! 😁 Elyssa really grew into her role as queen and inspired loyalty among the warriors. Can be read as a standalone but would suggest reading book one first as it provides a lot of background information. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This was s very cool book. It has mermen and humams interacting and lots of romance. Most of the book was centered on miscommunication because of the two different, very different, cultures. A great read!
