Against her will, Kitala Bell can foresee the future. But only darkness and violence . . . and death. And now it is her own future that is in peril. Her fate is in the hands of a prince of the sea. More than a man—impossibly beautiful and dangerous, with a voice that can seduce and hypnotize— M’cal’s song manipulates lives the way Kitala coaxes sweet music from the strings of her violin. Yet he is a prisoner, the captive of a malevolent mistress intent on using his powers to evil ends, and stretched to the very limits of his endurance. For Kitala, he is light and hope and fantasy, and survival for them both requires a bond more intimate and passionate than either has ever known. But it comes at a pr ice, for their love threatens not only the lives they’ve always known . . . but the very essence of their souls.

Another tale of a merman but with an interesting twist. M'Cal is a powerful singer of his people. He has been forced by a witch to kill people, sucking in their souls to be fed to her. When he is sent after Kit the story really evolves. I love when bards are done in a new way and Ms Lui did wonder...
It was worth the .50 cents I paid for it. It was cheesy, predictable, with a weak plot.- Yet I read the whole thing ? I really can't explain why. I was so miffed when the bad guys did the comic version of to tell the truth. They told their whole plot to the good guys, in the middle of the evil deed ...
Still liking series. A bit convoluted this go round. Interesting that person you love to hate throughout the book isn't the worse person and in an act of self sacrifice, aids H/h to defeat the real baddie.Figures, right?
Witches and a Merman added a new twist to the shifter genre. This one was action packed from the beginning. A great mystery with alot of twists and turns. Dirk & Steele crew were really secondary in this one. A really enjoyable read.
Coming back together, a more cohesive threat narrative than the previous book (is it weird that ghostly grandma's and evil witches are easier to follow and believe than psychic corporations and criminal depravity?). The complexity of the white witch was an interesting twist, and M'chal's reception ...
