This one also had so much going on, that I need a nap. But, the end with so many deaths... Wow, can somebody be saved! Yes, it's a statement not question. A magic rewind or something. All the books end with an impending war, let's bring it. Can't wait for more non-stop action and steamy scenes.

All I can say is wow because I definitely want more. Work kept me having to pause my reading but I was finally able to finish. So many lies led to untold truths and when it was finally revealed it was too late. I loved how Aquarius was willing to step up and protect Coral after her foolish mistakes. Croatoan was really seeking revenge and I don't like him at all. Marci needs to get her life because something is truly not right with her. I need Bayou to pull some strength from somewhere and show ...more

As usual Annitia L. Jackson did not disappoint! I like how she brings characters from her other books to later books, but in a way that you don't necessarily have to have read the other books. It's like one big happy family and you move from one side to the other side. So in this side of the family drama the underworld water realm is under siege. Bayou is shooting his shot at his mate while trying to take care of the kingdom, and his sister, Coral. The villain is from within and old enemies team ...more
Another 5⭐ banger!!

This author never fails me, and has done it again! This book had so many twists and turns. It takes you through so many emotions. Bayou truly loved Rachal and he would do anything to show and prove. Aquarius was a real man and for Coral he really stepped up to the plate. I don’t know how to feel about Angel because on the one hand I understand his decision, but on the other, I think he handled it wrong. That ending left my mouth ha going open. I can’t wait for pt 2 so I can se

This book was in my to read pile for a while so i decided to read it. I normally love books from this author, however i couldn't get into this book. I read for a while, and then i put it down and picked it back up but i couldn't get into the grove of the book. The writing that i read was good, but i just couldn't get into the storyline which is weird to me because I normally love these types of books. I might try to read it again later on and if anything changes ill update how i feel in my revie ...more

Awesome 💖

Annitia as always you never leave me disappointed. I can't wait for part two to see how things are going to end. Because knowing you things are never what they seems you always have something up your sleeve. You turned me on to a whole new world and I love it more and more with each book. Now get to work on part two because we are waiting. Lol Keep up the excellent work.🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Entertaining Read

This was my first read by this author. Never thought about a paranormal story with mermaids, but it did hold my attention. The author has created quite an imaginative story filled with relationship drama, family rivalry and fighting off villains. Kind of like a paranormal soap opera. I was shocked at the ending, looking forward to part 2 to see how the drama plays out.

A little slow 🧜🏾♀

This book was ok but also a little anticlimactic. I understand we need the back story on “croatoan” but still I felt a drag while reading. Also I know it’s good to give details but I feel the sex scenes didn’t require every bump & noise sound to be literally written out. I feel it takes up space that could be used for more action.
My opinion though 🤷🏽♀

Part 2

Omg nooo not the king I hope he comes back alive. I really hope Rachael doesn’t change in become dark but save the people. I really hope coral and qua can make it. Angel selfish I didn’t like that. I hope the uncle dies and everybody that betrayed the king of the water realm. I can’t wait till part 2 I need it asap. I love your books the just keep coming.

In the name of all that is petty I wasn’t ready for this one. I understand where Angel was coming from I do. But he didn’t have to do Nola like that. I hope she finds someone else and he loses his ish. I knew Marci was going to be a problem. Now I have to impatiently wait for part 2. You never disappoint. Sensational

This was a good start to this new series. Bayou's reign as king is threatened by a powerful source. Rachal is fighting a losing battle with her true self. Nola is playing a dangerous game. Croatoan was an interesting character. I'm looking forward to seeing how everything turns out with how things ended.

I am never dissatisfied when I read one of Annitia's books. She is fire when it comes to paranormal writing. Coral was a spoil brat. She kicked off the drama when she slept with her best friend boyfriend. King Bayou was a good King. He sacrificed his life for his people and the love of his life Rachal. I hope Rachel can bring him back. Can't wait till part 2

Loved it

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Annitia you never disappoint me. I feel like it ended too quickly. I kept reading and stopping trying to make it last. Why you do me like that at the end. You got my nerves all rattled. I loved it though. Can't wait til part 2.

3.5 Stars

This story was just ok. The flow of the book for the most part was ok. However, I probably would have enjoyed it more if it didn’t have an urban twist to it. I love urban fiction, but it just did not mesh well with this paranormal story. This story was entertaining though and I do plan to read part two.

A Fan! 🤞🏾❤

Didn’t get into paranormal books until this year! Author Annitia Jackson has just blew my mind! I’ve never find mermaids and supernatural beings to be so intriguing until finishing this book! From beginning to end, I was pulled in and man did my heart go out to these characters! Forever a fan! 💙

Great Paranormal Read!!

Annitia’s paranormal stories always catch my attention and this was no different. Bayou and Aquarius have to be ok. Coral was making me so bad in the beginning but I kind of like her now. Ready to read part 2.
