"I had heard stories of the sirens, mermaids, half -woman, half fish told by many seasoned sailor, but I have never believed a single word - until last night. And not one but five! A veritable pod of women with fish tails, trailing our vessel!"
Hunting The Merrow by Heather Rigney definitely did not disappoint! This book has adventures, secrets, betrayals, friendship, danger, and awesome characters!
Heather has a very unique mind! Yes, she writes about Merrow, which I'm obsessed with, but she does it in such a uniquely, different way. There is a lot of history in her books! You get flashbacks full of history, mermaids, and family secrets! I really enjoyed the family history of the Wasserschutz's! What a shocker!!! My mind was blown! I also found all the info about homoaquatics to be awesome! It made the Merrow seem more real, by comparing them to homosapiens!
This is the second book in the series and it starts off right where Waking The Merrow ends. Evie needs to find her brother after Nomia threatens him and her family. Evie knows he is in danger. She is losing Paddy again because she is so swept up in all this Merrow stuff. She travels to her brother house, and finds the house thrashed and turned upside down. What happened? Nomia offers to help Evie find her brother. It's weird, I would have never thought the two of them would ever pair up together! But they are willing to work together to save the man they both seem to care a lot about. It ends up being a trap. Everyone is in danger.
Evie's family history will shock you! I was totally shocked about Paddy's family history in book one, so hearing about Evie's really surprised me. Oh, and how could I forget Nomia! In this book, we learn so much about her and why she is the person she is. The more I think about this book, the more complex it is, and the more I want to say! I can't ruin the book for you guys though, so you'll have to pick it up and read it for yourself! You won't regret it!
"She intended to destroy me and my entire family, starting with Richard, but something went wrong with the plan. She had fallen in love with my brother."
