    Macy had always loved the sea until the day it stole her sister and she vowed to remain firmly planted in the earth. When the good intentions of a friend causes her to be on the water again, her worst nightmare will come to pass. She felt the rush of the icy water, the need to give up and knew that the sea would claim her and everything went dark. Macy never expected to awaken again, let alone to find her rescuer to be anything but human.

    Macy had always loved the sea until the day it stole her sister and she vowed to remain firmly planted in the earth. When the good intentions of a friend causes her to be on the water again, her worst nightmare will come to pass. She felt the rush of the icy water, the need to give up and knew that the sea would claim her and everything went dark. Macy never expected to awaken again, let alone to find her rescuer to be anything but human.

    Jax is a kraken, he has heard the horrors about those who live on land, his people had lived them, but the treasure he found in the sea was too hard to pass up. Now he possessed one of the humans, but little did he know he would find someone not unlike himself on the inside.

    They were as different as night and day, she was of the land and the air, he was of the sea, but in spite of their differences, and the way they met, they forged a bond that transcended everything but love. But how do they convince their people to see beyond the fears, the past and find that same acceptance?

    by Tiffany Roberts is a brilliant fantasy romance that proves that love knows no boundaries as they place two souls together, one as captive, one as captor and natural curiosity and a primal attraction breaks down the walls of their differences.

    What a fabulous tale of romance! The kraken are not perfect, but they are fascinating, almost as fascinating as their history as it is unveiled. Team Tiffany Roberts has taken two “species” and broken down the barriers of resistance and small-mindedness and opened up an entirely new series to explore with their imagination. Great writing that pulls readers in from the start slowly, then hits cruising speed and never lets up! Wonderful background detail, scenes that are incredibly believable, and a new tolerance that leads to love…I cannot wait for more!

    I received a complimentary ARC edition from Tiffany Roberts!

    While I really enjoyed this book and look forward to future books in this new series I do have some concerns.

    While I really enjoyed this book and look forward to future books in this new series I do have some concerns.

    Let me start with the basic story, I loved it, a race of beings that were genetically engineered by ancient colonists, to be slaves are living fairly peacefully generations (centuries?) later after overthrowing their human masters makes this an almost automatic "I love that plot".

    Jax upsets the balance of the human/kraken who are both living almost unknown of the others existence by rescuing Macy from certain death in a storm. The slow acceptance and evolution into a romance requires a small bit of insta-love/lust to move it along.

    The story does not follow the direction you might think and there are some unexpected twists and turns which add to the readers enjoyment but there are some sex scenes that may or may not appeal to some folks since the kraken are "equipped" with all the needed equipment for sex they still have those tentacles so your mental image may vary.

    Bottom Line: Aside from the mental images the reader might have the story was exceptional, the characters gripping and not cardboard cutouts but 4 Stars for seeming to overlook a few minor things that I might not have thought about if I had not been a reader of Grace Draven's "Wraith Kings" series. While it does have a small bit of Beauty & the Beast vibe it is totally unlike that story in pretty much everything other than the obvious situation. 4 Stars and maybe more but I want to read more of this world.

    Macy, is a good ole farmer. When the guy everyone expects her to marry takes her out to sea, a storm causes their ship to wreck. Macy wakes up in a cave with no knowledge of how she got there. She's alone...until she sees something lurking in the darkness.

    Jax the Wanderer. That is the name his people have given him because he doesn't like to stay in their home. He likes to explore and his exploring leads him to saving a human girl from the storm. Humans are the enemy. But this one is different.

    -------------

    This book won't be everyone's cup of tea. I admit I got a little weirded out by it too.

    So in hindsight...I didn't think Jax was tentacle sea creature ALL the time. I thought, like a mermaid...or merman...once dry his tentacles would turn to legs. But no.

    How very...Ursula. It was a little weird to come to terms with at first. But I shrugged it off and thought

    It was actually a very enjoyable story! I'm looking forward to the next book!

    Lots of hype about this book. Pity it's totally unwarranted ;P

    This is NA, ergo pretty silly heroine, plot and setting too. Moving in space doesn't change anything, it's still stupid, unbelievable and insta everything. You just add the ick factor of sex with Ursula (some of it were ugh? His lower part are octopus, and how the heck does he breathe and walk on land???).

    Get rid of the Aquaman hype: you see a teen oh so suffering because her family/society mistreats her, she's saved/kidnapped by ene

    Get rid of the Aquaman hype: you see a teen oh so suffering because her family/society mistreats her, she's saved/kidnapped by enemy hero. As soon as the 2 see each other they fall in lust. She's from a village but her mind is open and doesn't scream bloody murder at seeing him.

    Let me say that I skim read to 50% just because, at this point, I was damn curious about the sex, as I said Ursula... Honestly it's no way anything new. Just so you know :P Nor was it hot, as you damn well need to be involved to be interested in...

    I haven't finished it, but I am pretty sure I know what it's going to happen...

    It's KU or 4 bucks, and I was seriously tempted to ask those back. But I did get to halfway point...
