I enjoyed Son of a Mermaid, so I was excited to read the sequel. In Blood of a Mermaid, Shea must journey out to find Kae, who is believed to be kidnapped. This book is definitely packed with action. Every chapter held an obstacle for the protagonists to overcome. It also introduces a new character, Zan, who at first I wanted to root against. But as the reader gets to know him, his true personality and character is revealed, and you can't help but feel for him. I'm still Team Shea, though. O'Sullivan weaves a great tale with her descriptive pose and ability to get the reader excited with thrilling scenes. Definitely check this book out after reading the first installment. I look forward to the next book!
I have been waiting to read this book since I reached the end of O’Sullivan’s Son of a Mermaid. I knew there was so much more to be told in Shea’s tale, and I wasn’t disappointed in what was delivered in this follow up. Blood of a Mermaid picks up shortly after the last book ended, and we learn the main characters lives are still reeling from the events of the last book. Shea is still trying to adjust to all the changes, and adapt to his royal merman blood. Blood which sets the stage for a new adventure with different twists and turns for the characters we grew to love in book one. In Blood of a Mermaid, O’Sullivan reminds us that life is not about hard and fast rules or black and white, there are plenty of shades of gray. I highly recommend this book for fans of romance, intrigue and (of course) mermaids. It is the second book of a series, but can be read as a stand alone.
O`Sullivan returns to the world of mermaids with the same tact and fervour that we loved from her in the first novel in this series. The merging of life in the water and life on land continues, while O`Sullivan`s descriptions paint a brilliant picture of it all. This novel is also rife with more intrigue and plotting than we`ve seen from her thus far. This well written & well developed novel will definitely capture your imagination. There is an intensity to this novel that is hard to miss. Blood of a Mermaid is a fun, captivating novel that will let your imagination soar. O`Sullivan takes the characters that we met in the first novel of the series and allows them to grow into themselves as they age. The well-developed individuals that we came to know become even more so here, becoming who they were meant to be. We also get to meet some new characters, most of whom are quite approachable, and all of whom are well developed. This cast definitely tells a story in and of itself. Their interactions with one another heighten the story and provide insight into what has and may still happen. This is an intrinsically interesting and very well structured YA novel that will appeal to sea-lovers of all ages. Although it could be read as a standalone with little problem, I`d recommend reading the series in order. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
