Michelle Pillow - The Merman King (Lords of the Abyss Book 6) Finally King Lucius gets his story told. The King of Atlantes and the Mermans has become restless and pushed the envelope by going to the surface and seeing if he is able to breathe air without any repercussions. The people of Atlantes believed they would burn from being exposed. Of course it is on this expedition with his warriors that a human woman is suddenly drowning and Lucius is there to rescue her. Olivette was working as a waitress for a fancy party on a ship but suddenly finds herself drowning and on top of that being kissed by a merman so he can feed her oxygen.It takes awhile for the woman Olivette to warm up to the King’s charms but for him there is an instant attraction. There is trouble in Atlantes from a group of women trying to take power. The king and his people are to be challenged beyond their wildest dreams. This was a quick exciting read. I’ve liked the king throughout the series. The author has created an interesting special world and take on Atlantis, filled with very hot powerful mermen and how they find their mates. I was not thrilled about the way the series ended but was glad to see the king get his HEA. This series of Novellas is fun entertaining, I highly recommend reading the books in order.

Down By The Sea....... King Lucius has lived thousands of years with the guilt for being the cause of the curse put on him and his people by Poseidon... He has lived a very lonely life in the surety that he will never find his soulmate like his Hunters have. Thus he feels the need to swim to the surface and test to see if the sea weed will help to breath air, after all if it doesn't work what does he have to lose, his life? That was lost thousands of years ago for all his immortality. What he didn't see coming when he surfaced was a vision that could only have been sent by the gods and one he must rescue from the watery depths. Olivette could never have envisioned being thrown overboard by a drunk would be rapist and opening her eyes to the sight of a beautiful merman kissing air into her drowning lungs. As the Dome that houses all of his people starts to crack because of the evil of the mermaids, Lucius prays to the gods that he will be able to lead his people to the surface in time and that they will survive surfacing.

King Lucius gets his own story!!!! Lucius is at the surface, testing to see if the seaweed diet will help them be able to breathe the surface air. While he's up there he sees a woman in the water. Olivette is serving drinks on a fancy boat to high class people when one gets a bit too handsy. So what does he do? Throws her overboard of course!! He wouldn't want her to tell anyone what he's done so he gets rid of her. Lucius gets his chance to be a hunter and saves her. He feels an instant attraction to her and for her it's the same. She has to come to grips what has happened to her but she does pretty well with it. Add that to the Olympians who want to take over and there's quite a bit of drama. So we have crazy mermaid type ladies who have it in for the merfolk living in the dome, the ones who have lost their senses from being away from others, and a woman trying to cope with her new life. Overall, it's a great story. We get to see the previous characters and sine it's the last book in the series it all wraps up nicely. I will say that it's been a while since I read the previous books and I think I missed 1 and I was still able to follow along with no trouble. I didn't know the story of one of the couples mentioned but it didn't make the book any less desirable.

Olivette was on a yacht on the ocean serving drinks and then she was ........... well she wasn't on the ship any more. King Lucius of the Merr people has been cursed by poseidon so many centuries ago they can Hardly remember. Their curse to live at the bottom of the ocean never to see the earth or breath it's air again. To live as half man and half sea creature or merr. He had decided to be the one to test an inoculation that might let them see the surface again and breath it's air but it could just as easily kill him. While testing it he saw a women fall and had to save her. The war with the Olympians is on and who will win? Wow great story I loved the unexpected twist this story took at the end. Have to say I didn't see that one coming lol. I love the characters. It had awesome action, mystery, suspense, drama and more. I couldn't put it down and it's one of those stories I'll love to reread again and again. Don't miss it Voluntarily reviewed a copy and I honestly loved it.

A dangerous test gives King Lucius a beautiful woman. He has watched his hunters find mates. He wants one but isn't sure the gods will bless him with all the guilt he carries. What he can do is test a discovery that may release his people from their underwater prison even as beautiful as it is. That test gifts him with a beautiful woman who would have lost her life had he not saved her and taken her back to the dome city. Is she meant for him? There is so much to this story. Big changes for the citizens. Humor that only those from the present time get. Battles. Steam. And a future no one expected. I've wanted Lucius to find a mate. He is a good guy who doesn't give himself credit. I love the new wives from the present land world. Their hunter husbands are brave and often bewildered by these strong, sometimes funny, snarky ladies. This trapped me from page one. I just planned to check it out--right read right through to THE END. I loved every word. The only problem is that I want another one really soon. I voluntarily reviewed this advanced reader copy and I have not been compensated in any way.
