Publisher's Summary

The sirens of Griffins Bay are in trouble, and the recent slew of royal suicides looks to be the least of their worries.

For one, unless a blood relative of the queen shows up, no one's around to staff the monarchy. Well, except for a whack-job bureaucrat and he seriously won't do. Worse is the community unrest threatening siren society, a problem caused by too many humans in the pool, which means Simon and his off-limit girlfriend will have to run and hide if they want to make more of their flirtation....

The solution doesn't inspire confidence at first, but the Blakes have everything at hand to set their world to rights - namely, a hidden queen, a dead prince, and a facility for human manipulation. Once they find their sea legs, they'll restore order, distribute smart phones, and drive that conniving bureaucrat to a grisly, satisfying end.

Great Addition to the Mer Chronicles

I enjoyed the first book in this series but this one is even better! I enjoyed the pace in this book and how everything progresses. There are a few unexpected twists that make the story fun and unpredictable.

Narration brought the story to life. Sean did a great job with this audiobook.

I love fantasy and the Mer Chronicles are a fun world with mermaids/sirens and their unique way of bonding and selecting a mate. I'd recommend everyone to read the first book before reading/listening to this second one. Everything will make a lot more sense if you understand the special world this author has introduced in book 1.

There is also a little bit from book 3 introduced at the end and I do have to say I'm totally hooked and can hardly wait to see what is going on there! I'm so looking forward to book 3!!!

Love this series!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, there's so much going on and I wanted to know the answers.

Any additional comments?

I love the world building and the characters in this series. Definitely recommend listening in order, this book picks up from and ties in heavily to the first and won't make as much sense otherwise. Amazing narrator, he really brings emotion to the characters. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

I'm Hooked!

Any additional comments?

Breakwater: The Mer Chronicles is Book 2 in The Mer Chronicles Series. I think that it is best enjoyed after listening to Book 1 for more background on the story and characters. I was pleasantly surprised that Breakwater was just as good as the first book in the series, something that doesn't always occur. Once again, I was transported to the magical world of sirens and had a great listening experience. Romance, suspense and a few surprises all made for an interesting story. Such a fun series! The narration was terrific and added to my enjoyment of the audiobook. I can't wait to see what happens next and I would recommend Breakwater: The Mer Chronicles.

I'm not into fantasy books but.....

I was given this book upon request and I am volunteering this review. I have to admit, I do not care for a lot of fantasy titles . However, this book has captivated me and caught my interest ! Being the second book in the series, you really need to read the first one in order to catch the story. These are not standalone novels . But I instantly fell in love with this series! I fell in love with the characters immediately and am looking forward to continuing the journey with them! The book was performed wonderfully by the narrator , giving the characters life and individuality! I would recommend this title and a series to all of my friends who love fantasy novels!

Mermaids Livings With Humans is Fascinating!

Breakwater by Errin Stevens is an interesting mermaid story that takes place in present day. It is the second book in The Mer Chronicles, and I highly recommend reading the first book before this one to better enjoy the story (I didn’t listen to the first book, Updrift, and felt lost for about 1/3 of the book). The story primarily centers around Carmen who finds out that she is the heir to the Siren throne. Plotting against her is Duncan Fleming, who was appointed the Regent after the prior Queen died in the first book. Simply put, Duncan doesn’t want to relinquish his claim to the throne and devises a plan to expose the sirens by brainwashing humans who worship and adore him. In the end, Simon gets his just rewards is a classic fairytale ending (his attempt at killing the new Queen backfires on him). There is a side plot of Simon kidnapping Sylvia, while Maya marries the wrong man for the wrong reasons. I expect these side stories will be better developed in the next book.

I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Sean Posvistak who did an admirable job providing differing voices for all characters. I do wish he narrated in a more conversational tone though as his reading seemed quite excitable. All things considered, I would like to listen to the next book in the series and plan to listen to the first one as well as the concept of mermaids living among humans is fascinating.
