nixitN’s Review: ‘Tears of the Sea’ by MaryLu Tyndall

Doomed by the evil warlock Forwin to wander the ancient seas as a mermaid for all eternity, Perdita longs for the release death would bring. Every ten years she has a chance to break the curse when she emerges from the sea fully human for one month. The catch? She must find a man willing to die for her. After 300 years, her failures have left her heartbroken and alone. Savion Ryne wants nothing to do with beautiful women. It was one such woman whose betrayal sent him far away to battle Natas’ rebellion. He longs to return to his father’s kingdom in Nevaeh but must first complete an unknown mission. After Savion falls off his ship during a storm, he wakes on the shores of an island with visions of a dark haired mermaid tending his wounds. When a woman similar in appearance begs for his protection, he is suspicious. Perdita has never met anyone as honorable as Savion. Even though he shuns her every advance, she falls for him. But as the end of her time on land approaches, she faces the hardest decision of all, save Savion and remain cursed for all eternity or break the curse and watch the man she loves die.

My thoughts:

The basic idea was fine. I liked it, but…

Perdita chose a stupid way to have broken the curse. Because of she was annoying character, but she was brave as well. Perdita made a lot of stupid things, and she didn’t care about the consequences.
I’m not surprised that Savion has already started to be sick of her. I liked Savion’s character, he was strong and brave. He was real hero.

The action scenes were short, but exciting. I liked battle between Specter’s crew and Natas. But I knew a little about it. I think the backstory wasn’t fully developed.

The end of book was great and romantic. But I think it ended with cliffhanger. Because I’d be curious how Savion and Perdita were saved people of Eden.
So it was a little bitter story for me. And yet the basic idea is so good! So I was disappointed in it.
