Title:  Dangerous Depths

Series: The Sea Monster Memoirs

Author: Karen Amanda Hooper

Published: November 2013

Hell hath no fury like a selkie separated from his true love.

The gate to the sea creature realm is finally open. Rownan assumes the worst is behind him when he returns home after years of waiting to be reunited with his wife, Vienna. Only to find out that Vienna didn’t wait for him. She traveled to the evil realm of Harte years ago, hoping the legend of another gateway to Earth’s realm was real, but she was never heard from again. Rownan claimed he’d go through hell to be with Vienna, and now he must prove it.

Yara wanted to bask in the glow of her happily ever after in the magical realm of Rathe. She planned to explore Medusa and Poseidon’s world and dive deeper into her relationship with Treygan, but as the new leader of Rathe, her powers are needed to save more than one member of her own kind. Treygan vowed to always be Yara’s guardian, but long ago he also swore to go any lengths to protect his brother Rownan. Now, he must fulfill his promise to both of them.

Rownan, Yara, and Treygan are about to put their lives and souls at risk by traveling to the most dangerous realm of the worlds. Love should conquer all, but no one has ever conquered Harte.

Ana will put Dangerous Depths on her top shelf!

My Review: You all know that I love love.  I’ve certainly told you that enough times.  So, when a book brings me a character who’s willing to battle hell (no, really, I mean actual hell) to get back his one true love…well, come on, my poor heart could hardly stand it!  Add to that wonderful characters, tons of adventure, and a world beyond words, and you’ve got a great read!

The author weaves a wonderful story of an amazing love, one that looks beyond danger and fear in it’s need to exist.  Rownan and Vienna are soulmates.  And, due to an unfortunate situation have been separated for many years.  Once Rownan discovers that Vienna is in Harte, the sea world’s version of hell, he is determined to save her…even thought others warn that after all this time, she is undoubtedly dead or worse!  Even though this is a seemingly fruitless adventure, both Yara and Treygan, who we met in the first book, will not hear of him going alone.  And so starts the adventure that tests their wits, their heroism and their relationships.  Around every corner is a new challenge, an evil creature and an obstacle to overcome.

The characters grow so much in this book.  Yara, who’s life changed radically at the end of book one, starts to better understand her new powers.  Treygan, as always, is charming and I really enjoyed seeing his relationship with Yara continue to get deeper.  Rownan…well, what can you say about a character who’s willing to go to hell to get the woman he loves…I think *sigh* says it all.  Nixie was so brave and such a good friend.  And…there’s a new character, a Kraken, that you just have to meet!

This is the second book in the series but in some ways it feels like a new story with Rownan taking a much bigger role (and Nixie feeling more like a main character than a secondary one).  However, a lot of what happened previously affects this story.  So, trust me, you will want to read the first book before you start this one…it’ll make it easier to dive right in and enjoy this great adventure!
