The Water King's Bride (The Descendants #2) by T.E. Ridener

@Archaeolibrary, @TE_Ridener,

#Fantasy, #Romance,

The beautiful, stubborn princess he’s been falling for this whole time, has once again decided to take fate into her own hands and go head-to-head with the Darksygg. As if battling a vengeful hybrid hasn’t been enough–not to mention the trauma he’s already endured–now, Isaiah must travel to Oceavora, the Water kingdom, so Heidi can request help from his cousin, Adrian, who is the newly-crowned king after his father’s sudden–and suspicious–demise.

Yeah, it’s a lot to take in. He’s willing to do it, though, because despite the chaos and near-death experiences he’s had thus far, he’s pretty sure he’d go to the ends of the universe for her, and when things take a turn for the worse, he may end up doing a lot more than that before all is said and done.

4 out of 5 (very good)

THE WATER KING'S BRIDE is the second book in The Descendants series and follows directly on from book one, so I definitely recommend you read that first!

Heidi and Isaiah have stopped their constant bickering from book one as they both realise they have feelings for the other. That has to take a backseat though, as Heidi is desperate to find her father and missing people. We meet a multitude of new characters and reunite with some old ones, although whether that's a good thing remains to be seen.

As with book one, this is just as fast-paced and it is full of action. Whilst it fits with the story, I would like to see more about the characters, their backgrounds, the world they live in. Sometimes, it feels as though it's a spin-off from another series, one that explains about TimeKeepers, etc.

Saying that, this was a brilliant addition to the series that kept my attention and had me turning the pages. A fantastic story and I can't wait to see what happens next.

Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Born and raised in Southeastern Kentucky. Married with two furbabies Cujo (dog) and Christine (cat). Loves to rewatch The Office, Big Bang Theory, and recently discovered Night Sky (it's so good!)

Just dived back into the writing world after a hiatus, and eager to finish up some of the stories y'all have been patiently waiting for. (Thank you!)

I write romance with a bit of comedy, action, angst, and real-life mixed in. I really just love writing love stories and giving my characters happily ever afters. (The road isn't always easy to get there, though.)

I hope you'll join me for the next adventure! ❤
