Betrayal is the second book in the Syrenka Series. I reviewed the first book in the series, Promises, last week. I enjoyed reading Promises, but I enjoyed Betrayal even more. The pacing is a lot more relentless in this book, the characters are vibrant and entertaining and well, I absolutely loved Graham. He was the perfect amount of bad boy thrown in an attractive body and with some nice quircks. I also loved Eviana’s progress here, as she changed from a bit of a egocentrical, stubborn teenager into a more mature woman. Some parts of the book were a bit predictable, I give you that. And everyone seems to magically fall in love with Eviana. First Kain and Brendan, and now Graham as well. But it didn’t annoy me as much as I thought it would. I kind of figured out the whole Lucian deal in book one, so I was glad when that part was wrapped up. Eviana has to come to terms with her powers to control the minds of humans and sea creatures. The Council is impressed with her powers but not enough to trust her in the war against Lucian. She’s send to train with a man she despises and who uses humans, sprites, protectors, and what not to do his bidding. Meanwhile, Brendan returns and Eviana hopes they’ll get a second chance, even if the odds are against them. She has an alliance with Kain, and they work together even though he seems to be unable to stand being near her. I liked her spirit, and how she always refused to give up. I’m looking forward to the third book in the series, the grand finale. So far I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the writing style, the world building and the lore crafted into these books. The characters have yet to fully convince me though, as does the plot. I enjoyed these books, but I’m crossing my fingers and hoping the plot stays strong and decent during the last one.

Eviana must finally grow up! In this book Eviana is now a clan leader, after her parents are cruelly murdered.  Brendan, the selkie she has loved forever, leaves her in her time of need.  We get to see how she interacts with her friends and former fiance after she abandoned them for love.  I like how everybody doesn't pander to her just because she's a leader and how she starts seeing everything without the rose glasses of love.  I hate how Brendan treats her, no matter what happened between her and Kain, she didn't deserve that.  If you buy this book, make sure you read the first one and buy the third one because with the way this book ended, you will be in huge suspense.

'Betrayal' is the darker and more exciting second book of the Syrenka trilogy that brings mythological sea creatures to life. It continues to focus on Eviana, our heroine of the series, as well as her clan members and friends. After returning home after her parents were killed and her heart was broken, Eviana must join the war against Lucian Sutherland and also must find her destined place among her people. I found this book to be just as fast-paced and fun with lots of adventure and great fantasy characters as the first book of the series. I haven't read many mermaid fiction before, and I found it interesting how the author presented the mermaid culture and their history. I also loved how she continues to incorporate other mythological sea creatures into the narrative - like water sprites, selkies, and naiads. They brought a unique and refreshing feel to the mermaid genre in young adult fiction. The author went a bit deeper into merfolk culture and society with this installment, which I found to be really riveting. Like the first book of the series, this story was somewhat predictable but had great twists that I didn't see coming. I easily reconnected to Eviana and easily identified with her early in the story. The ending was a good fit for a second book in a series - it doesn't leave the ending too closed and it doesn't leave too many questions unanswered either. All in all, 'Betrayal' is a great continuation to a fun and interesting series. Fans of paranormal YA fiction and mermaid lore will love this series. Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Amber Garr has outdone herself. I am stupefied at how this series has unfolded. Betrayal has quite a bit of the unexpected and some twists that caught me off guard. I loved book one Promises and book two Betrayal is even better. Ms. Garr is creative and has such a great plot and character development. Eviana has grown and Kian as well, but have they grown closer? We also meet Graham and does Brandon come back? Does he stay? If you want to know pick up this book. I would love to see these books turned into movies. I think how things ended in Betrayal was a nicely done, but left me thinking I need to know what happens. This book can't be over yet. I am excited to read book three Arise. I am intrigued to see what happens with Eviana. A must read series. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who loves romance, adventure, the unexpectd twist, mystery and ya reading.

Betrayal (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis as part of the ‘Syrenka’ Series Blog Tour) This is Book 2 in the ‘Syrenka’ series, and starts a few weeks after the end of book 1 – Promises. Eviana has taken over as clan leader, following her parent’s death. She’s unsure of her new position, but doing her best; while trying to come to terms with the fact that her boyfriend Brendon is taking time away from her. Forced to prove her worth to the council by demonstrating her new found powers, Eviana finds herself shipped off back to Jeremiah’s house to learn about using her powers, along with the mysterious Graham, a British boy who was the youngest member of the council before Eviana and Kain joined. Eviana finds herself strangely drawn to Graham, even if he is infuriating at times, but has her doubts as to his loyalties. When Lucian starts attacking multiple mermaid clans, Eviana knows that she has to do something, but what can one teenage mermaid do against the sort of forces that Lucian has? And how many have to die before Lucian is stopped? I enjoyed this book. I love Eviana, and I totally love Kain. I really think that Eviana should have married Kain instead of running off with Brandon, although it is debateable as to whether things would have been different if she had. I found the surprise arrival of Graham to be interesting, but was a little disappointed that Eviana had feelings for him. She already has Brendon and Kain to think about, and in my opinion a third love-interest wasn’t really needed. I also was in two minds as to who Graham was and what his intentions were anyway. I have to say that I did see the twists in this instalment coming, although that didn’t ruin the story for me. It is pretty obvious that someone is going to betray Eviana from the title! Maybe a different title would have decreased the chances of me guessing the ending! Overall; this was a good second book, and I am looking forward to finding out what happens in the final instalment ‘Arise’! 7 out of 10.
