Island of Glass - Nora Roberts

I will now be reading this book for the Epiphany door book task:

 

Book: Read a book with three main characters OR a book about traveling on a journey to a faraway place OR a book that’s part of a trilogy OR with a star on the cover OR with the word “twelve” or “night” in the title OR or concerning kings or spices.

Bay of Sighs
Bay of Sighs (Guardians Trilogy) - Nora Roberts

I enjoyed this, but not as much as the first in the series.

 

I am, however, relieved, because I wasn't sure if I would like reading about Annika, the mermaid, as a romantic lead. She seemed so innocent in the first book that I was just afraid that the romance between her and Sawyer would come off kind of...skeevy.

 

Thankfully, in my opinion, it didn't.

 

This book made it more clear that while Annika is innocent to the ways of those who walk on the land, and she possesses a joyous innate goodness and purity, she's not at all child-like. Yes, she confuses words and phrases, but she's intelligent and wise and knows what (who) she wants. It's also made clear that while her first time with Sawyer is her first time while she has legs, it's not her first time ever. Theirs was a very sweet romance.

 

The story of finding the stars before the evil goddess does is still intriguing, and I can't wait to get to the last book to see how it all plays out.

 

I probably would rated this one 3.5 stars, but I'm knocking a half star off for the surprise mermaid/human sex scene.

Change of plans, I'd been intending to read this book for the Epiphany door (part of a trilogy), but I think I'm going to place this one on Door 10, Bon Om Touk since it has water on the cover.

 

I'll use the third in the trilogy (which also has water on the cover!) for the Epiphany door instead.

 

 

Book: Read a book that takes place at sea or on a river OR with water on the cover OR where the plot involves a festival or the moon plays a pivotal role in the plot.
