SHE KILLS WITHOUT MERCY
On her thirteenth birthday, Thalliya watches her entire family get slaughtered. The humans cut off their fins and hang their heads from their Viking ships. Left cradling what few pieces remain of her twin, Thalliya screams to the gods for vengeance.
Answered by the Goddess of Love and War, Thalliya now guards the seas without mercy.
HE FIGHTS WITHOUT FEAR
Ragnor is hired to take care of the mermaid terrorising the western seas. With seventeen kills under his belt, he thinks little of venturing into the Mouth of Hel. It'll be a quick job with a quick pay…
But when his ship is wrecked and the majority of his crew is drowned, Ragnor realises that it's not a mermaid he's hunting. It's a morgen, a dark mermaid, that's hunting him.
And there's only one way to kill one of those.
You have to get her to fall in love...
4 out of 5 (very good)
Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
This is the second novella in the fairytales of myth series and I was as hooked on this one as I was the first it really doesn't seem to go on long enough.
The raw pain and anguish Thalliya feels watching her family murdered is horrendous. I feel it with her, I also get why she freezes that heartache is certainly one that takes your breath away!
The relationship between Ragnar and Thalliya and how it grows and flourishes is very steamy but also needed by both of them. Its sad to know it doesn't last.
I enjoyed the fast pace of the tale and that it doesn't hang around there is adventure from the start definitely a fantastic read
4/5 absolutely cannot wait for the next instalment

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *
Miranda Grant has cycled three thousand miles up the Rocky Mountains on a tandem bike, launched herself off a cliff to go soar under a giant piece of thin fabric, and has stared down a mamma grizzly and her cub without losing a single limb. A true believer in that life is too short to waste away, she has a comprehensive bucket list and becoming a successful writer is just the next item on it. She defines success as not how much money she makes or how wide of an audience she captivates. To her, it's defined by transporting her readers into a new world and have them fall in love with its occupants. If she can do that, then this item is done. Though that is not to say her writing will be.
