Aegira Chronicles, #2

This is a book that try as I might, I couldn't

get into. Having read the first book, I have to say that the main reason that I had problems with both this read and the one preceding it is the Mer factor.

The author spends so much of this read stripping the Mer characters of everything that makes them authentic, that by they time they actually get the opportunity to do Mer things, it is quite the surprise.

Book Blurb for Beached

The sequel to Fish Out of Water is a sexy, funny mystery about strength, love, and French fries.

When the clerk at a burger joint is assaulted for trying to sell a fish burger to a hot blonde, it’s just the beginning of a clash between Land and Sea. The world is going mad, and Princess Lecanora is on a special mission to stop it. There are just a few complications…

First, life on the land is a bit harder to adjust to than expected, what with the wearing of clothing and the consuming of delicious (but pointless) calories. Second, the most evil magician the world has ever seen wants her as his bride — consensually or otherwise. Finally, a completely inappropriate gun-toting mercenary who goes against every one of her pacifist principles keeps rocking her world.

As the forces of darkness gather, Lecanora must come to terms with the lengths she will go to in order to save the sea home she has always known, and the land she has come to love.
