Betrayal: Book 2 in the Syrenka Series
About the Book
Eviana Dumahl has returned home as a clan leader, an orphan, and a heartbroken teenage girl. Her parents are dead and her boyfriend, Brendan, has decided that he needs some time away. While battling her inner turmoil, Eviana is forced into the war that Lucian Sutherland has incited amongst her own kind. With the help of Kain, her friend and formally betrothed, the two work together to prove that they deserve their birthrights as young merfolk leaders.
When the Council requests a demonstration of Eviana’s mermaid powers, she finds herself with an opportunity to win back Brendan’s heart. But her orders to train with a repulsive merman and the presence of an attractive new suitor challenges Eviana to embrace her leadership and resist temptation. Lucian is after her, and no one seems to understand why. Loyalties are tested as the casualties increase, showing Eviana that sometimes it is impossible to delineate between friends and enemies.
Betrayal is the second book of The Syrenka Series trilogy following Eviana and her friends as they navigate through the challenges of existing in a secret world.
I have to say that I am completely addicted to this series! I finished the first book in 2 days, then immediately jumped into the 2nd book which I also read in 2 days. The pacing in this book is amazing – just like in the first. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to know what would happen next. Eviana’s character is really blossoming and I like her more and more as I read. Garr added in some new characters in this book. One in particular whom I like a lot is Graham. He is witty and sarcastic and adds a fun element to the book. Garr does a great job with creating unique characters. Again, there is plenty of mermaid folklore and a lot of mythical creatures. The book ends with a cliffhanger that will leave you wanting more!
I liked this book even more than the first and I can’t wait to find out what will happen in the third. I give this book 4 stars!
