Life as a mermaid can be suffocating.
Eviana Dumahl has returned home as a clan leader, an orphan, and a heartbroken teenage girl. Her parents are dead and her boyfriend, Brendan, has decided that he needs some time away. While battling her inner turmoil, Eviana is forced into the war that Lucian Sutherland has incited amongst her own kind. With the help of Kain, her friend and formally betrothed, the two work together to prove that they deserve their birthrights as young merfolk leaders.
When the Council requests a demonstration of Eviana’s mermaid powers, she finds herself with an opportunity to win back Brendan’s heart. But her orders to train with a repulsive merman and the presence of an attractive new suitor challenges Eviana to embrace her leadership and resist temptation. Lucian is after her, and no one seems to understand why. Loyalties are tested as the casualties increase, showing Eviana that sometimes it is impossible to delineate between friends and enemies.
Betrayal is the second book of The Syrenka Series trilogy following Eviana and her friends as they navigate through the challenges of existing in a secret world.
5 OF 5 MERMEN
Amber Garr is taking the reading world by storm in her Syrenka Series. I just love mermaid and mermen stories and I absolutely LOVE this series. Amber has added some new twists and turns and has created a world where choices could and do equal consequences. Where love knows no bounds and will break you if your not careful. The best part of this world is that Amber gives her characters a voice of their own. They can decide what happens to them and they can choice who they are going to love but in the end the choices come with consequences.
Betrayal picks up right where Promises ended. I have to say that when Promises ended I was just not sure what was going to happen in Betrayal and I was a little nervous to read it. Rightfully so because Eviana has lost her parents and her boyfriend Brendan. She is devastated and heart broken which is not a good combination to have. She really has no one but she sets out to prove that her and her ex-betrothed Kain can rule their people and take their rightful birthright that is trying to be taken from them.
Lucian oh man my bad boy Lucian is up to no good in Betrayal. He is out to get Eviana and she still does not know why. He is intent on destroying the clans and ruling over the merfolk that are left. The saying divide and conquer came to mind when I was reading about him because he is determined to make Eviana's life miserable. I hope we get to see what his problem is in book three because he is one pissed off merman!
Kain has decided to stick by Eviana even though he is still clearly in love with her. He is there for her when she has to train with a croutchey old merman and lord is hell bent on breaking her in. But Kain ever the love he is is there and to make matters worse Eviana has a new suitor in town Graham. GOOD LORD Amber are you trying to kill me with all these merman that are so SWOON worthy!
In the end Eviana will have to fight real hard for what she loves and what she wants. I am not a fan of cliffhangers but the one in this book left me speechless and screaming for more. I need book three ASAP! I am so on the fence with which guy Eviana should be with that I have to see where Amber is going to take this. This is a MERFOLK MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
