Overview

Oceanborn (Aquarathi Series #2) by Amalie Howard

The coronation is over. 

But the battle has just begun. 

Nerissa Marin has won her crown. But can she keep it? Already, her ties to the human realm are driving a wedge between Nerissa and her people. When word arrives that her part-human prince consort, Lo, has been poisoned, she makes the difficult choice to leave Waterfell and return landside. As the royal courts debate her decision, even more disturbing rumors surface: a plot is rising against her, led by someone she least expects. 

 

On land, Nerissa learns another shocking truth—Lo does not remember who she is. As her choice to try to save him threatens her hold on her crown, changing loyalties and uncertainty test her courage in ways she could never have imagined. Nerissa will have one last chance to prove herself as a queen…and save the undersea kingdom she loves.

A brilliant sequel that managed to top the first, Oceanborn was a fantastic YA read. The stakes were upped, the characters grew, the romance deepened, and the ending left me wanting more. I absolutely LOVED this book! Nerissa was my least favorite part of book 1. I had found her to be selfish, more concerned with running away from her problems than being a good leader to her people. But, in this book, she proved what a strong queen she could be. She was determined to do what was best for her people, whether Aquarathi, hybrid, or human. She really became an admirable character and I ended up really liking her. Lo was as amazing as ever. Even with memory loss, he was sweet and utterly adorable. He stood by Nerissa, no matter what, even if it meant facing the suspicion of the Aquarathi. He was wonderful and I loved him even more in this book. The romance was lovely. I thought it was so sweet that, despite Lo's memory loss, they still had a bond that transcended memory. Nerissa and Lo were steadfastly loyal to each other, determined to stand by each other, no matter the situation. I thought they were a perfect couple. The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were a few twists along the way, along with some thrills as Nerissa dealt with the danger facing her people. I loved the story and the ending was a cliffhanger that has me itching to get my hands on book 3. Can't wait to read it! Oceanborn was a fantastic YA paranormal romance. I absolutely loved this book. It had everything that made book 1 so good and did it better. Fans of book 1, you will love this one. And, YA lovers, this is a series you'll definitely want to check out. *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
