Publisher's Summary

Four shipwrecked divers, one mermaid princess who longs for the freedom to choose...or not.

Destined to marry the gorgeous, high-ranking Kai and inherit the throne from her grandfather, Princess Coral is the envy of every mermaid in the shoal. But all she really wants is the freedom to decide her own fate.

When Coral runs away from her own wedding and escapes to the land, she knows the clock is ticking. She has five days before her human body will succumb to the curse that binds all mermaids to the sea. Overwhelmed by the harshness of a deserted island, Coral is ready to accept her fate and return to the shoal, but with the arrival of four shipwrecked divers, Coral starts to understand why her mother was lured away by the human world.

When Coral is given the choice she always wanted, will she make peace with her destiny, or risk everything to forge her own path in a whole new world?

If you like the myth, adventure, and romance of fantasy stories by authors like Jaymin Eve, Bella Forrest, and Amy Bartol, and you'll love The Mermaid's Escape.

A good, enjoyable take on the mermaid tale

First off, I actually enjoyed this book. The author sucked me in with the interactions between Coral and her new found friends on the island. The characters were all easily identifiable and "real". There was a good camaraderie between the four shipwrecked men that isn't always easy to pull off.

My only issue was with the performance. The narrator's voice had a very innocent quality to it, which suited Coral fine, but not the male characters. Not a deal breaker, but I wasn't sure if this was supposed to be a young adult book, romance or whatever (well, until it came to the actual explicit scene, which was told from Coral's point of view, and wasn't crude at all).

Overall, a very quick listen -- even at 6 hours. At the end, I was almost disappointed we didn't find out what happened to Gio, but I supposed SOMETHING needs to be left for the next book.

A good job and I recommend it to anyone who likes a good fantasy.

Enjoyable Story

I really liked The Mermaid’s Escape. It was different from other Mermaid books I’ve read. The characters were very likable. Each one brought something different to the story. I enjoyed learning about their pasts and what brought them all together. At first it took me a little while to get into the narration but once I got into it the story grabbed ahold of me and I couldn’t wait to finish. I felt narrator did a good job with making the voices distinguishable. I look forward to finding out what happens in the next book.

Good Reverse Harem

This was a good reverse harem read. The world building was interesting although I would have liked more underwater life and less island life. The characters were detailed and enjoyable. The narration was fantastic. I look forward to more in this series and from this author

Loved the story as well as the narration

It takes some time to adjust to the sound but once you get used to it, it is an amazing experience. I enjoyed it a lot!

Worth a listen.

It took a little while to get into but I ended up liking this book. I found the narration a bit flat and before the dialogue got going l didn't really warm to the characters. By the end though I was really rooting for things to work out for the gang.

I'll read or listen to the second in the series to see what happens next.
