After he rescues a mermaid from a sea monster, Max Weiss falls into a world of pirate treasure, dolphin whisperers,murderous mobsters and a forbidden love.Troubles multiply in the already-troubled life of Max Weiss after he rescues a mermaid from the clutches of a seamonster. Drawn by the allure of the enchanting mermaid, Azzaria, Max agrees to help her find her lost mermaid sister. Max is pulled into a world of missing drug money, pirate treasure, murderous mobsters, dolphin whisperers and a forbidden love.
This was not something I would normally read. I am glad I read it though. It was a great book, and quick to read. It kept me engaged though, and that is a big thing. So many books are just so hard to get into.
I loved Max. I prefer the characters that have had to deal with the bad as well as the good. I think that it makes them easy to relate to when reading. We all want to be able to say, that could be me, if we lived in worlds with sea monsters and mermaids.
I think that I was bit put off by mermaid sex, but that is just me. It was well written, but I guess I pictured it differently in my head. Then again, I am not really sure what I was picturing in my head. That being said, I think that the main characters didn't bring the same emotions to other things that they brought to their sex life. I think that they were not as compatible as they should have been.
Pros: Great characters, great story
Cons: I wish it was longer, more fleshed out
Overall rating: I would recommend this one.
Impressions: Needs more fleshing out, make it longer, weird mermaid sex not to my taste.
Stars: 4 out of 5
