Enjoyed

I enjoyed listening to this story. The narrator did a great job. I enjoyed the characters although they were stubborn at some points and that could get a little annoying. But I enjoyed them and their adventure. The storyline is well written and enjoyable. I recommend reading. (I received this audible book free and am leaving a voluntary honest review)

Incredibly great story.

Incredibly great story. I truly delighted in it. I cherished everything about this book! Impeccable tune in for a sluggish fall day. I truly loved this book. I was home when I was toward its finish. With him, you can't turn out badly!

Fabulous

Totally awesome. The narrator was really lovely, her voice for all the different characters was very well done. The book was a great story with characters that were brought to life by the narrative and the authors writing. Highly recommend.

Not my cup of tea

The narrator was good. However, the story was... not what I was expecting. The book felt like it was geared for grade schoolers.

Too stubborn = Too long, still good

This is actually a great story, but for me it could use a bit of s trimming. The characters main trait is that they are both stubborn, and the moral message it that one should try to trust a bit more to work together and solve problems but sometimes it's a bit too much. After all most of the first part of the book is them locked in their cages. The narrator is perfect with her accent. She really conveys the high breed of the couple, even when they get really annoying. :) It's still a great story with an interesting world building. I'm looking forward to see what's next in the serie, even if the book ends with a happy ending for now.

Mermaid versus Dragon

Ancient enemies that have a LOT of history which does not make trust possible. Sadly, trust is necessary if either one is going to get out of this situation. Of course, that amount of trust leaves the reader hoping that both will get out at least mostly safely. The barbs that fly between them do show that there may be more than just the past between them..... The narration was great with character distinction and emotion bringing depth to the story. Bottom line: This is the BEST way to spend an afternoon on the weekend while you can concentrate on the great story.

Mermaid’s Destiny

Magical creatures at its finest. These two are definitely on opposite ends of the scale and yet they are able to find equal ground to fight black magic. I enjoyed this book and the narration was done really well to help bring this book to life.

A sweet fantasy romance adventure

I initially found Cirona and Argun difficult to get along with but they grew on me as the story progressed. The enemies-to-lovers trope was done well, and the ending was gloriously bittersweet. The overall storyline was fascinating, and I'm definitely interested to see where the story goes from here.

A sweet YA fantasy adventure

Mermaid's Destiny is a sweet, clean, little fantasy adventure, but despite being categorised as Epic Fantasy here, it felt much more like a Children's book. Until a gently passionate clinch in Chapter 25, I would have said it was solidly middle-grade, but the romance may bump it up to young YA. (Though it is not a 'kissing book', to paraphrase The Princess Bride, I think that it would have been in the 11-13 Years shelf of my local library.) I found the story rather slow to get going, with dragon and mermaid taking forever to figure out where they were, how to escape, and whether or not to work together. Once they did, the action picked up, and they had to combine their strengths and overcome their people's indoctrinated prejudices to save Cirona's soul, and Argun's heart. The language is very simple, there is no swearing, the lines between good and evil are distinct and unyielding, and the soulmates' faith in each other turns to a true love that conquers all. There are moral messages throughout, teaching the benefits of teamwork and friendship, embracing the differences between communities, and the perils of avarice and the pursuit of power. Whilst there is some resolution, it's unfortunate that the story ended on quite such a cliffhanger, especially as the author appears to enjoy creating new series' more than she likes finishing them. The narrator, Beverley Murray, had a nice, clear voice and read in a bright, lively, manner. Her performance reminded me of being read fairytales at bedtime as a child. I'd recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a fantasy adventure they can listen to on road trips with older children, or those looking for a book to suit kids who are at that 'in between' age; too old for middle-grade books but not quite ready for the adult themes in YA. *I received this audiobook free of charge from Audiobook Obsession in the hope of an honest, unbiased review.

This was a good book not what I expected. It takes a minute to get into it but after that, it gets very interesting. The narration was great. 🎧AudiobookObsession

Captivating

I really enjoyed the uniqueness of this, mermaids and dragons, sworn enemies, dark magic, then turns to friendship and love. It really was captivating to listen to. This is first of the series there was a lot of character and world building but it was done very well. The narrator was fantastic, she put feeling into it and her voice was clear. 🎧 AudiobookObessionReviewer

Meragon Book One

Meragon Book One. Cirona and her mermaid sisters are out one day and they notice a strange sight above. Cirona is sidetracked by the human man falling, though, and is captured. When she awakens in a cell with a dragon just outside the bars, she immediately fears the worst. However, after Argun begins speaking with her, she realizes he is in an adjacent cell. The mermaids and dragons have a long rivalry, but Cirona is determined to get the dragon to work with her to free them. However, once they are free, they realize that their freedom isn't the only victory they need to accomplish. If you're looking for a multi-race fantasy series with an enemy-of-my-enemy theme, this is the book for you! 🎧AudiobookObsession

Outstanding!

I signed up for this book because the synopsis was intriguing, but I have to admit I didn't think it would work... a mermaid and a dragon! Didn't see it happening. However, oh, however, this worked beautifully! This book was such a sweet story of romance and hope. The narrator was spot on, and she added an element personality to each character. I found myself tearing up at times. The cliffhanger left me with questions that I can't wait to get answered! 🎧AudiobookObsession🎧

differently exciting, cliff hanger

Wow... This was a very interesting story. It made me think more of an adult fairytale. The writing was on point, and the narration was done well. I look forward to book 2. I need closure!!! Great story. 🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Good PNR but ends in a cliffhanger

Royals from two different species (Mermaid, Cirona and Dragon, Argun) are captured. Can they get over their suspicion and distrust to work together to escape? I loved the banter and the push and pull as they decided whether they could trust each other (and which species is “superior”). There were some great scenes of action as they worked together against warlocks. Please note that this ends in a cliffhanger and the next book is not available. However, the book was nicely written with great descriptions. Very imaginative! Beverley Murray did a good job narrating. She had a good ability to play multiple characters and I enjoyed listening to her tell the story. 🎧AudiobookObsession, AudiobookObsessionReader
