"To celebrate the rise of their new queen, three goddesses of the moon created three stars, one of fire, one of ice, one of water. But then they fell from the sky, putting the fate of all worlds in danger. And now three women and three men join forces to pick up the pieces. Mermaid Annika is from the sea, and it is there she must return after her quest to find the stars. New to this world, her purity and beauty are nothing less than breathtaking, along with her graceful athleticism, as her five new friends discovered when they retrieved the fire star. Now, through space and time, traveler Sawyer King has brought the guardians to the island of Capri, where the water star is hidden. And as he watches Annika in her element, he finds himself drawn to her joyful spirit. But Sawyer knows that if he allows her into his heart, no compass could ever guide him back to solid ground ... And in the darkness, their enemy broods. She lost one star to the guardians, but there is still time for blood to be spilled. The mermaid's in the water and the traveler's on the land. For she has forged a dangerous new weapon. Something deadly and unpredictable. Something human."--Publisher description.

Brilliant as usual from Nora Roberts. One of my all time favourite authors. Her characters are always fun, loving and sometimes really frustrating :-) This book is a brilliant read, if you like Nora Roberts and have enjoyed all her other books, you will not be disappointed in this one.

★★★★☆ Great Read

Absolutely loved it!! If your looking for fictional creatures, drama, action and love; this is definitely the book to read.

★★★★☆ A good, fantasy read (Staff Review)

By Mary, Waterloo Public Library on Thu, 23 Jun 2016 11:23:49

I always like Roberts' fantasy stories, with their Celtic and other mythic figures and story lines. This has some similarities to her Circle and Sign of Seven trilogies, but that didn't detract from my enjoyment. It's also set in such lovely surroundings, as was the first - Corfu and Capri. I like stories of groups working together (to save the world, of course), artists and their talents and elements of magic. Mer-people are a new, fantastical element. So not ordinary....
