Recommendation Fridays: The Aquarathi by Amalie Howard

   Waterfall was one of those books I first discovered at the Public Library and never forgot about. It was always on my mind until I heard when it's sequel, Oceanborn, was going to be released. Then I was stuck thinking about Oceanborn all the time. The Aquarathi series is one of THOSE series, and trust me it's one of the best series to have a book hangover for. 

   A wacky twist on Mermaids and Aliens, Royalty, Romance. All the great qualities a book needs to drive a reader insane with needing more.

   I highly recommend this series to everyone with a fancy for mermaids, it'll definitely satisfy any mermaid craving you have.

The series would probably be best for people who like the following books:
Fantasy, Paranormal, Sci- Fi, Mermaids, Aliens, Royalty, the Ocean

But like always, it's a great series for everyone!

Seamster by Amalie Howard

Release Date: June 17th, 2014
Publisher: RAH MEDIA LLC
Series: The Aquarathi, #1.5
Format: Kindle Edition, 81 pages

Description from GoodReads:

   They say that love is the death of duty … 

   Speio Marin is land-bound, tied to the side of the Waterfell queen-to-be, Nerissa. There's only one problem--she wants nothing to do with any of the Aquarathi or her undersea kingdom, preferring instead the freedom of pretending to be human. Torn between his own desires and his duty to serve his future queen, he spirals into an abyss of malcontent. Speio’s mistrust of humans is no secret, and he sees them only as a threat to the existence of his people. 

   Until he meets Anya Delmonico--a mysterious and enigmatic girl, teetering on the edge of survival. Anya is sedate and secretive, yet reckless enough to brave a hundred-foot cliff jump. Caught between a dark past and an ex-boyfriend who refuses to let her go, Anya knows that getting involved with anyone new is the last thing she should do. But when her past catches up to her, Speio turns out to be the only one she can trust, refusing to let her face her demons alone. 

   When Anya discovers the truth about Speio, putting her life in mortal danger from the Aquarathi as well as her own sinister pursuers, will he risk everything to protect her? Or will he choose duty above all?
