My current review is for Kosas by Nikki Landis. This story is filled with adventure and a forbidden romance, Ari has gone to Hell and back following her true desires and I give this woman a lot of credit for standing up for herself and never giving in. Evan was always missing something in his life and it takes an unforeseen event to have him open his eyes to a new beginning. A wonderful paranormal romance that will have you turning the page non stop and holding your breath waiting to see what wi ...more

My review is for Dark Reign by Nikki Landis

Ari is a Daemon fascinated with the human world a place she gets herself in a lot of trouble for traveling to. When she meets Evan it's game over.

These are such likeable characters as they navigate their way through some very difficult situations. It very much looks like they won't make things work at several points in the story which is heartbreaking.

This is another winning story from Nikki Landis. Fantastically like

Dark Reign by Nikki Landis:

I really love these characters and the storyline. It’s a fun concept. I hope this will be turned into a series because I felt the end was a little rushed and the death of a character I really liked should have been more upsetting to the mc than it was. I’d like to see more and how this could all turn out. We just had light touches of some characters and I’d love to have something more in depth. I liked this and think it has potential for so much more.

Balanced Scales by Laura Greenwood
This is a fascinating twist on both classic and Disney tales of the Little Mermaid, which I was so drawn into just from the first chapter.
Laura’s retelling sees Mari and her seal companion Shelbie, set out on an adventure to get back Mari’s soul, and hopefully the souls back for the other soulless mer.
I highly recommend Balanced Scales.

My review is for Kosas by Nikki Landis:

I have & always will love PNR first and foremost. The more book pnr books I read by Nikki, the more I crave her books. The books open you up to an imaginary world where you feel like you are there. This was an amazing read.

Dark Reign by Nikki Landis
I love dark fairy tales!!! “If the light and the surface world were my joy, then darkness and home were my curse.” Ari is a daemon and her father is one who rules with an iron fist. Ari is drawn to the surface world and happens upon Evan after he is robbed and badly hurt. She decides that she is going to take care of him and not take him to the hospital. Evan comes to enough to ask her name and he feels empty when she has to leave. Now Evan is confused. Was she a

ORIGINAL MERMAID SHIPWRECK SOUL STORYS. One particular story l really enjoyed was by Laura Greenwood about

Entertaining and interesting tale about the harnessing of souls and the fight and perils to find and get them back. I am finding this a very entertaining box set with a couple of Authors l hadnt read yet so thats great. Recommended re

Not the Little Mermaid you are used to
Love this storyline by Nikki Landis. It was unexpected twist with Ariel or Ari as she is called in this story being a daemon. She still wants to experience things that humans do and can’t abide by the rules of the underworld. She does the unthinkable and loves a human, Evan. Evan, the hero, has a lot on his plate but he is a fighter. Eventually he comes to realize that Ari is what he wants to fight for. Love

This is for Dark Reign by Nikki Landis

Ari is a daemon confined to living underground but she craves the suface world and the company of humans. When she sees Evan being attacked and stabbed she reveals herself to save him. That’s the start to a wonderfully twisted retelling of The Little Mermaid. I really enjoyed the characters and I would definitely take Vraul over Sebastian any day. I voluntarily reviewed this book.

There are so many great versions in this box set but I chose to give my review on "Dark Reign" by Nikki Landis.
I'll admit it, I love dark, twisted, sexy fairy tales and this one is no exception. It's been a number of years since I read "The Little Mermaid" and then to have this twist. Just wonderful! As I've said many times, Nikki Landis is one of my go to authors so anytime she puts her twist to things, I know I'm going to go along for the ride. This was great.

***I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.***
This was a very quick and easy read from Nikki Landis. Dark Reign is a story about Ari, the Daemon princess who loves to travel to the human world. Through her travels, she falls in love with a human which is forbidden. Ari breaks so many Daemon laws just to see and spend time with this human she fell in love with. This was a wonderful read and I highly recommend this book!

Ari has been raised to believe that humans are the enemy - but then she saves Evan when he is attacked, and falls in love. Evan loves her too, and when his mother dies, and he needs her, Ari makes a deal to become human. But she is deceived - how will it all work out? Will they be able to be together? Or will the witch win? Loved it! :-)

A wonderful collection of short stories. I am reviewing Nikki Landis' contribution to this collection. A short and sweet romance. Ari, a daemon, saves Evan's life. As a human he doesn't believe in the supernatural. Can their love survive the dark forced of Hell. A wonderful story!

Dark Reign by Nikki Landis

Ari has lived her life under the thumb of her father and brothers. She has been raised to believe that humans are the enemy, but she can't resist the pull to their world. A chance meeting with Evan changes both of their lives forever. This tale of forbidden love proves that father does not always know what is best.

The Dark Reign book by Nikki Landis is a good paranormal romance read. The story is a dark, and twisted retelling of The Little Mermaid story. The story has a good story line. The characters are good, and they have good chemistry. The story is an enjoyable, engaging, and entertaining read.

Dark Reign by Nikki Landis
Dark Reign is a darker and twisted version of the little mermaid. While this is not a light read, the way the story is written the pain and angst is beautiful and heart wrenching at times.

Balanced Scales by Laura Greenwood
How important and/or valuable is a mermaid's soul? This is unique twist on the little mermaid where not all is as it seems. This story incorporates old folks tales into this modern mermaid romance.
