He’d rejected Valeria… 5 HAND-CARVED DOLPHINS What had he done? Isn’t your mate worth fighting for? You’re my mate, and I will win you back. If I have to spend the rest of my life making it up to you, then I will. But I’m not giving up and I’m not going away. I’m going to do whatever it takes to win you back. without her, all of it was for nothing. WTF?!! As in What The Fada happened to me and my heart?!! Rui, Valeria, Merry and Rebecca have me so wrapped up, so deeply submerged in this story, in this series, that I feel like I need to change into my water Fada shifter form and go for a long swim! This is a truly faetastic story that had me crying, laughing, melting, drooling, cursing, holding my breath and even yelling at the characters a time or 3! wink There are a few dark parts, but are stopped before crossing that line. I love that there IS some darkness to the stories because it adds to the overall depth and helps contribute to the well-rounded stories that these all are! I have to say that one of the parts I love most about Rebecca's Fada Shapeshifters series is that they are so much more than "just" finding your Mate! Yes, that is a key and very hot part to them, but it is so much bigger and more complicated than that! The story doesn't end when the mates are found, the troubles don't magically disappear and other such "fluff". Don't get me wrong, I love "fluff" as much as anyone, but Rebecca's enhanced storytelling is so much more!! With lush descriptions that enable me to see EVERYTHING adding depth & enrichment, complex characters who I can't help but either fall in love with or despise, depending on their role, the raw emotions, passion, humor, heartbreak, sadness, evil, magic, power, darkness, light, friends, enemies and everything else that goes into making a good story FANTABULOUS!!! Rebecca is one phenomenally talented author who is also an exceptionally gifted storyteller! I wish I could say that I regret not following this series from the start, but truthfully I am love, Love, LOVING that I get to binge read this entire 5+ (and counting!) Fada Shapeshifters series from the prequel straight through to book 4 all at once! Reviewer’s Note: If you haven't already read the entire series, I personally recommend reading them in order as it will deeply enhance the Reading Experience! However, they can probably be enjoyed on their own too. wink
Rui's drinking and womanizing caused the breakup with his true mate, Valeria. But what caused his drinking? Merry is Valeria's daughter. But who is her birth family? Merry isn't a water fada.. Intricate, appealing romantic paranormal romance. The journey is enjoyable and the characters are personable. 3 1/2 stars
