Couldn't put it down
Breakwater follows several main characters on their slightly differing, but interconnected journeys between North Carolina and Shaddox, the mermaid/siren island. This book keeps up with Kate and Gabe, Carmen and Michael, Maya, Sylvia, and Kate's extended family (parents and aunt/uncle) from the first book of The Mer Chronicles, Updrift. There were some newly introduced characters. Unexpectedly, Peter's former bonded wife and Parker turn out to play a somewhat monumental role, greatly affecting Carmen. Siren characters Simon and Aiden, who were introduced very briefly in Updrift, were reintroduced as a much larger part of the plot in Breakwater. Duncan and his wife were also a newer, but somewhat important, focus in book 2, Breakwater. As I'm sure you can gather, there is a lot going on in North Carolina and Shaddox - plenty of drama, jealousy, and desire! I especially like that author Errin Stevens left me continually wanting to read on, because the characters are all so important, with so much going on and just as much hanging in the balance. Simon, particularly, threw me for a loop, as sort of a rule breaker, but in a more shocking way. He isn't a rule breaker of a rebellious sort, but rather follows a path I didn't expect he would choose (which is when he breaks "rules"). Maya and Aiden were also somewhat of a shock, but after reading The Mer Chronicles (books 1 and 2), it's understandable why things have to be as they currently are. With that being said, I'm anxious to see the outcome for Maya, whether her current situation lasts 5 years or more ;) Overall, I recommend this well written series (beginning with Updrift, then Breakwater) for ANY fantasy lover. The Mer Chronicles is an entertaining and enjoyable read!
