About this deal
Everyone has heard of the new Sea Queen and her quest to foster better relations with humans. Not many people know about her fondness for the human prince who has stolen her heart.

UK cover US cover Not only that, but Lira has killed some of his royal friends throughout the years. She killed some when they were just young princes. Lira kills a mermaid causing her mother The Sea Queen, to exile her from Keto. This turns her from siren to human. Elian and Lira’s Relationship
They are both rough around the edges, both willing to do whatever they deem necessary, and both unafraid to get their hands a little bloody. When fate thrusts them together what we get is a book worth of verbal battles as they use their wit to draw each other out. We get tension and action, we get slowly building friendships and even slower building romances. Basically, we get a lot of awesome things that you are just gonna have to see for yourself. I reach out my hand to pull her up, and the look Lira gives me is nothing short of poisonous. “Do you want me to chop it off?” she asks. I keep my hand hovering in the space between us. “Not particularly.” “Then get it out of my face.” She trails off. What she thought was that princes were mine and I didn’t share. That’s not untrue, but where there are princes, there are kings and queens, and I’ve never had much use for either of those. Rulers are easily deposed. It’s the princes who hold the allure. In their youth. In the allegiance of their people. In the promise of the leader they could one day become. They are the next generation of rulers, and by killing them, I kill the future. Just as my mother taught me.
We will be reading anything in the young adult genre, and some new adult! Hope you all enjoy! ;) ...more I hated the romance. It was mostly banter that was just uniquely terrible, really just a whole new level of unfunny and bad but with characters being like “Wow...she is very funny...I quite like her...ha ha dare I say she is one of the gang...lol you may have met your match, dear sir...sounds like someone else I know...ha ha ha, I kid, oh yes, we have fun, lmao.” SPOILER WARNING]– We learn that The Sea Queen was the one who killed Kahlia’s mother. Her own sister. Authors, if you are a member of the Goodreads Author Program, you can edit information about your own books. Find out how in this guide. Se muestra que Elián es un príncipe con corazón de pirata, que no tiene interés en cumplir con sus deberes reales como futuro rey, sino que le gusta viajar a través de los mares para matar sirenas, para hacer que los mares sean seguros, como él cree que lo son los mares. un hogar para él. Primero cuestiona a Lira y sus intenciones cuando la deja subir a su barco, pero poco a poco se enamora de ella.
A romance grows but it is extremely slow burn. I would not recommend this book for readers who like their fantasy heavy on the romance. And, despite the obvious parallels that can be drawn with The Little Mermaid (Lira loses her siren song instead of her voice), I wouldn't recommend this for those looking for a retelling either. It's very different, and this "mermaid" definitely doesn't want to be human and bag a prince - unless by that you mean killing him. This prince is far more badass, too. Reading this book was an amazing experience, I absolutely flew through it. To me this book doesn’t feel like a standalone because I have grown to care for these characters impossibly fast, and I will miss them dearly. The story was very well written, it didn’t feel rushed, it didn’t feel slow, it had the perfect pace and conveyed exactly want it wanted to say. This here isn't your typical Little Mermaid retelling. There's no sweet princess with romantic ideas about the human world. No innocent prince looking for love.Am I going to add this awesome book that seems to feature not only a siren but also a handsome pirate prince?
