Fifteen-year-old Serena is the youngest member of a dying race. The increasing acidity of the ocean is destroying her home, slowly eating away at the once thriving underwater landscape. But since the night of Serena’s birth, it is an outside force that most threatens their dwindling population. Werewolves, who once served as protectors for mermaids in the Kingdom of the Undine, now seek to eliminate all who dwell in the ocean — and Serena is about to find herself right in the middle of the deadly conflict.Akasha series by this author, and once she announced that she was writing a book about mermaids I was thrilled. Honestly for some unknown reason I have read maybe a couple of books with mermaids in them. Why? I have no idea. At the end I only wish this book was more enjoyable for me so I'd gladly pick another mermaid book, but sadly that's not what happened.
Given the title of Werewolf Liaison, Serena is determined to make things right for her people. When she ventures to The Dry, she meets Liam, the werewolf with hazel eyes, and her whole world gets turned upside down. As Serena discovers the real history between werewolves and mermaids, she is left wondering who her true enemies are.
We shall start from beginning here. This is a story about Serena, the youngest member of a dying race. Fifteen years ago a massacre happened where many of her race were killed and the hate between her race and their enemies werewolves went deeper and deeper. The history between these two races goes way in the past and once they were protectors of one another, but then everything changed that night. Now mermaids are close to their elimination and without being able to go on the surface they're not able to create more of their race. When Serena is given a task to go on the surface she is determined to make things right. Things are getting harder to cope with and soon enough the conflict reached its peak.
When I started reading this story I though I would give up. The beginning is really slow and with so many descriptions it was hard to read more than a page or two a day. But I pushed myself to go on and honestly I'm happy for that. Because later this series gets more interesting.
Not only slow pace at the start was an issue to me, also the Serena's character was hard to connect to. But that's my fault as the is too young for my liking. At some points here actions were a bit frustrating to me, but honestly I'd probably support her all the way if I had read this few years ago.
All in all, it was a really interesting story, but slow pace and main character weren't something I enjoyed that much.
Rating: 3 stars.
Until the next time,
