Publisher's Summary

Oceanographer Luke McAllister races to figure out why the ocean depth is changing off Florida's Treasure Coast. But before he and his crew discover what's transforming the deep, he stumbles upon an even greater mystery. Leagues below the waves, he swear he sees...a mermaid?

Anya isn't allowed to get close to humans. But when a golden-haired researcher gets too close to her island, she can't afford to stay away. Together, this unlikely pair will seek to discover what's causing shifts in the ocean floor.

While their new alliance is forbidden, Anya will risk everything to save her beloved ocean. The only problem is she's not sure what's really luring her in - her love of the sea or the tempest Luke has stirred in her heart. Either way, Anya knows that the dangers facing the sea are nothing compared to what will happen to her when her father learns she's broken the merfolks' most sacred law. Can Anya and Luke discover what lurks at the heart of the deep before it's too late?

    Story
    "Merfolk!"

    This is a fascinating story. I always like stories of mermaids(merfolk). This story is written by Carrie L. Wells and she has written the perfect story. I do wish it has been longer, anywhere from six to ten hours.

    Narrator Kristin James did another fantastic job. She kept me engrossed in this story from start to finish. Overall, I give it a perfect 5 star rating. I do hope Kristin narrates the next story that's coming out this year.

    Story
    "Good Start to a New Series"

    I enjoyed the story very much and it was fun to listen to a new take on mermaids. The narration was a little fast paced and there could have been more pause between scene changes, but overall the narrator did a fine job immersing the listener into the mermaid world.

    I know this will be part of a series, but I felt I was just beginning to get into the characters and the story ended abruptly. I needed a couple more hours to become fully engaged in Luke and Anya's story. Hopefully the second installment will also be offered on Audiobook Blast so I will be reminded to listen!

    Story
    "HARD TO CHOOSE BETWEEN LIFE STYLES"

    I enjoyed the book for listening while driving and for relaxing a little before sleep. What I found very disappointing is there was NO ending. I realize that it is a "Collection" but that does not mean that each book can't have a finale. It ended more like a long charter than a stand-alone book. The story idea is interesting, the narration nice and the romance quite tasteful.

    I was gifted this book by the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Story
    "Mer-people & humans share the ocean"
    What did you like best about At the Heart of the Deep? What did you like least?

    This story has a mystery for us, with a purpose other than the romance that blooms between Anya and Luke. The ocean is changing. And more. There are light orbs that Luke's crew sees on their research boat. Then Anya knows where it's coming from, but she doesn't know what cased the energy source or why it's there. I'm really curious of the light orbs from the trench in the ocean!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I did enjoy the scene with Anya at the end, first with Phoebe and Fiona picking on her then at the end when Anya makes a stand.


    Any additional comments?

    Kristin's gentle voice easily transitions between the different people, male and female, with different tones and personalities. I love how she brings them to life for us. Kristin even voices an alarm when it sounds, a small sound affect for us.

    We rotate chapters between Anya and Luke as they investigate the sea for the same reasons. The attraction between Anya and Luke seems to grow at a nice pace through the story, making it feel as they are connecting on more than a physical attraction level. We see each in their own lives and a growing attraction and connection between them as at first they see and think of each other then brought together with their concerns for the world. I found I was worried for the world and Anya's island because of the crack. The thought that Luke could help was wonderful. But then I worried that the truth of mer-people would get out and destroy the peace they have here.

    Okay. If you don't like cliffhanger endings, I suggest waiting for the next story to come out. This ends with a bang and I WANTED TO KNOW what happens.
