Nerissa Marin has gained her inheritance and the crown of
Waterfell, but she hasn't earned the true allegiance of
the Aquarathi. Unfortunately, she's barely crowned before
she senses that something is amiss with her mate and
regent, Lo Seavon, but she's ill prepared for what she
when she returns to the human world on land. Can love
happen a second time around? And how will Nerissa handle
threats mounting against her?
OCEANBORN is the second book in The Aquarathi
and is best read in the context of the series. Initially,
was concerned that Amalie Howard was simply recreating the
first novel in almost a do-over, but this time with
chasing after Lo rather than the other way around.
Thankfully, this is not the case as the plot definitely
thickens in OCEANBORN as Amalie Howard adds some very
spins to the storyline.
OCEANBORN shows us a more caring side of Nerissa. In the
first book, Nerissa was a bit harsh, softened only by her
friendship with Jenna. However, OCEANBORN shows Nerissa
maturing and developing into a leader than any species
be proud to follow. I can't help but love Nerissa's
even to those who she has fought with in the past.
Amalie Howard knocks it out of the park yet again with
OCEANBORN! Amalie Howard does a great job at addressing
sensitive issues of racism through the animosity and
disregard shown by some of the Aquarathi for humans. Be
forewarned, however, as the cliffhanger has me anxiously
awaiting the third book by this talented author! OCEANBORN
is highly recommended!
