Publisher's Summary

"The Fate of Stars, the first book in the Sea and Stars trilogy, is delightfully dark and sexy, full of lush imagery, vibrant characterization, and enough adrenaline to keep me up way past my bedtime." (Anna Burke, award winning author of Thorn and Compass Rose)

A devout mermaid. A disgraced princess. A feud as ancient as the gods.

Worlds collide when Tallora is kidnapped from her ocean home and forced to be a pet to a tyrannical foreign empire. Her only hope for rescue lies with a sworn enemy - Princess Dauriel, infamous for her stone heart and conflicted past. But when Dauriel’s kingdom comes to the cusp of war, could their uneasy alliance be the key to defeating a common foe? Or will their growing feelings for each other lead them to ruin?

From the world of Fallen Gods comes a tale of ancient magic and cutthroat politics - and finding redemption through love.

"If you like your fantasy with an extra dark twist, exceptional world building and deeply complex characters then reel this book in fast. You’ll be hooked. Oh, and mermaids! Enough said." (The Lesbian Review)

What’s not to love? It’s got mermaids/lesbians

I never know what to write for book reviews but I hope you give this one a chance. It’s not like any other books that I read or listen to. I think it’s really unique and different and it takes some twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting. It has love anguish, romance, sexiness and action.

Nope

Well, the narrator’s choice of voice for the mermaid almost made me stop listening. If you don’t mind Barbie-goes-Valley-Girl voices then you’ll be fine.
This book probably makes for a better reading experience than it does in audio format. The author’s overuse of the word “stole” would drive me insane if I had to read it but hearing it throughout the last third of the book scarred me for life.
Fans of The Walking Dead tv show may remember the social media outrage over how they handled, or appeared to handle, pigs in one episode. (No real animals mistreated, of course.) Violence against animals, especially beloved creatures like horses, is a huge risk for an author. It’s unnecessary to the story line in this case when it happens near the end and left a bad taste in my mouth.
The political intrigue in this story is not fleshed out enough to make it a prime motivator for characters.
The epilogue tries to set the stage for the next book but it ain’t happening for me, folks.
It may not sound like I think so, fellow readers, but I think the author is talented. I came away thinking this book didn’t know what it really wanted to be.

A beautifully epic tale with such intrigue

Complex, Yet it never felt too overwhelming to understand.

The story of Tallora the mermaid being captured by the Princess Dauriel who seeks her mother's approval starts off this emotional rollercoaster and surprising romance!

I really wasn't expecting to care for the captor of our mermaid friend, but through the twists and turns in the novel and finding out about the Princess and her past, and her family, I came to understand and forgive her as did our mermaid friend.

I already have the second book cued up, and would highly recommend the books to others who love lesbian fantasy adventure with slight political elements.
