A Life Worth Saving When I first started reading this book my mind kind of wandered then the story picked up about 30% into it. Yes, there were some parts that made you question the instant attraction after meeting 25 years later. I could also have used a little more background on Abbie's past life to help fill in what was going on in her current life. Hauke's life since saving Abbie life all those years ago is not really addressed much in the book. I will forgive the author because by this time I am caught up in the story. Now this review reads as kind of negative but I will point out it is I have really enjoyed the book to the point I cannot wait till Naura story is available. There is more I would like to know about the virus and Uncle Tony.

I wanted to love this story but it fell flat for me. The aliens are really mermaids. That was not a deal breaker though. The author just missed a lot of opportunity for explanations. She never explained what the mermaids actually were like or what there home world in the sea looked like. She also failed to give explanation on several key factors between the H and the h.

I received a free copy for an honest review. This was my first introduction to Ditter Kellen but will not be my last. This book provides everything you expect; instant attraction, intrigue, plot twists, and a great lead into the next books in the series. Hawke was such a unique PNR hero, Ditter has created a new version vampire/merpeople and makes you want to know more about his world and people.

Exciting adventures from below! What Lies Beneath is #01 of 09 in the Enigma Series by Ditter Kellen. All 9 are currently published with 05 of them being in audio. The author plans for the other 4 to be in audio by the end of the year. She also plans many more after #09 at this time. Which excites me to no end! Every fan never wants their series to end! ❤ Yay! ❤ Johnny Mack narrates the series, to include all future editions. HEA with no cliffhanger! These are connected by characters so I recommend reading the books in order. It is more enjoyable that way, but could be taken as standalones if you absolutely insist. There would be spoilers for the earlier ones if you start in the middle. Length: 6 hrs and 8 mins Warning: SEX! Yes! Both in thoughts and actions, so those opposed should avoid. Trigger Warnings None that I see. ♥ Story ♥ Bracadyte Prince, Hauke ❤ Doctor Abbigail Sutherland Abbie Doctor Abbigail Sutherland knows her dad is up to something and follows him to work to find that the answer is more than she could of imaged. A human-like specimen is in the lab, waiting to be retrieved by the military. Abbie feels drawn to this creature but cannot fathom why. He seems familiar for some reason. Hauke Hauke is a type of alien merman, for lack of a better word. The last thing he remembers is searching for his sister and brothers in arms after an explosion. He wakes in the lab to the sounds of Abbie's voice and mentally links with her and shares the memories of their past encounter. After an infusion of human blood, Hauke is miraculously back from the dead just in time for all hell to break loose. The pair turn to Abbie's uncle for protection. Uncle Tony is an ex-CIA operative who is a ghost. Seriously, he basically never existed due to his past government relations. With Tony's help, they manage to get Hauke home under the sea. Take note of Uncle Tony, because you will see him again! Of course it's not going to be that easy! There is a lot of action to be had, as well as more characters to meet and fall in love with. The overall story Arc of the Bracadytes and the infection will continue throughout the whole series. Ditter Kellen weaves mythology into a uniquely beautiful story that is the world of the Bracadytes. The characters are fictional but will illicit real emotions. You will want to rise up on their behalf to protect them from the human ignorance that threatens their well-being. The Enigma series has quickly become one of my favorites! I can't wait to listen to the next as I devour this series like candy. I want to know how every character's story plays out! I can't really comment more without spoiling something. And trust me, there are things I want to say about some of the people I want to stab in the face, lol, but I will have to make this series a part of the Read Along With Me titles, so look for it over there hopefully soon. ♥ Author ♥ This is my second read/listen by Ditter Kellen, and I can't get enough! Her writing is imaginative and unique! The covers are HOT! Ditter has 07 Audible Titles ♥ Narrator(s) ♥ This is my fourth listen by Johnny Mack, and I'm still loving it! His performance of both male and female character works. If I had to nit pick, the only thing I could say is sometimes the transitioning between narration and Hauke's voice is not always smooth, which is not that big of a deal, being that it is a transition of Hauke's thoughts/POV to Hauke speaking, so its all still

Aghhh! I loved this! I'm going to make this review short and sweet because you need to read this book NOW! Enigma is PNR at its best. Tons of action, intriguing storyline, smart and resilient heroine and sexy, protective hero that will do anything for his mate. There is a lot going on in this book, out of control viral epidemic, conspiring politicians, government cover ups, old prejudices and cultural differences to overcome. I loved the detailed world building and romance. The story goes from zero to sixty from page one and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Intense and thrilling, I have a feeling that this series will be my new obsession, so go, BUY THIS BOOK and welcome to my new addiction.

I am not going to give any details but to say this is a must read for any paranormal reader. Great characters and fantastic story line plot along with a bunch of bad guys. Once I started this I had to finish it until the end it kept me on the edge of my seat to see how it would turn out. I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. This is book 1 of Enigma by the author.

Title: Enigma - What Lies Beneath Book 1 Author: Ditter Kellen Published: 2-23-2016 Publisher: DK Media Pages: 238 Genre: Paranormal Romance Sub Genre: Sci Fi & Fantasy; Genetic Engineering; ISBN: 9781523808014 ASIN: B01B56NB90 Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley My Rating: 4 1/2 Stars . When she was 7, Dr. Abbigale Southerland ran to the ocean wanting to ask God to give her back her mother. When she was caught in the undertow Hauke, just a teenage boy himself saved her and disappeared into the turbulent waters. Now 25 years later she is able to repay the debt when, following an explosion, Hauke is washed ashore and brought to the laboratories where Abbigail's father works and before he can be sent to Area 51 for dissection, she helps him escape and they go on the run from both of their people. Hauke recognizes his mate and as the connection between the two continues to grow so does the danger. Ditter Kellen writes a gripping story of the paranormal, romance and suspense. With a writing style that draws you in from the very first and characters that are well developed and a plot the that is thought out and flows smoothly from scene to scene. I love that at first meeting the two do not automatically understand one another yet the compassion is felt by the reader. It keeps the story believable and the characters more likable. This is the first book of the series, but if you find you just do not want to leave the world of Ditter Kellen then pick up book 2, Naura, Hauke's sister's story. My rating is 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. Warning: some scenes are very explicit. If this offends you this may not be the book for you. There is a great plot and the scenes are not just for gratification.

Enigma By: Ditter Kellen Reviewed by: Elizabeth/snoopypeach After being rescued from drowning as a child, Abbie never thought she would see her rescuer again. Seeing him in her father's lab sends her life down a whole new path. Haute finds himself captured and so weak from injuries that he can't respond, much less escape. With Abbie's help they escape, but the journey is far from over. This story is absolute excitement! With so many twists and turns and obstacles in the way these characters are really tested. Escape, fighting a deadly virus, two worlds colliding, conniving politicians, finding love, and so much more you will be on the edge of your seat from cover to cover with this read. The characters are fully developed and you get enough back story on each one to enhance the story but not to distract. Haute is strong, loving, courageous and sexy. Abbie is smart, compassionate, spunky and brave. They don't get their HEA easily which makes it so much better when they do find some peace. The proofreading is spot on, I didn't see anything that was out of place. This is a stand alone read but the series looks like it will continue with other characters from this story. This was a fantastic read and I can't wait to see what happens in the series. I highly recommend this story to anyone who likes action, intrigue, paranormal or just a great romance.
