HER INSPIRATION AND HER PASSION… Three months ago, Aymee had no idea the kraken — half-human sea dwellers — even existed. Now, the violet eyes of the kraken Arkon haunt her imagination, and she longs to know his touch. But word of his people has spread beyond The Watch, and Aymee’s attraction to Arkon may endanger the safety of human and kraken alike. To protect him, can she bring herself to forsake him? Is her desire for Arkon worth putting both their worlds at risk? HIS MUSE AND HIS JEWEL… Arkon has spent his life in the pursuit of knowledge. Then he met Aymee and found a new quest: to make her his. She inspires him, draws him in, dominates his thoughts. When he finally builds the courage to approach her, she’s everything he imagined and more. But a group of murderous humans are hunting the kraken, and continued contact with Aymee may destroy them both. Now that he’s tasted her sweetness, he can’t give her up…but can he risk his world and his people to satisfy his need for her?
3.5 (FOUR) BOUNDLESS STARS
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Arkron is the artist type character. Comparable to a musician or a starving artist in other stories. I typically don’t read those because I like type A alpha males and Arkron is not that at all. He tends to be more submissive to Aymee who is also an artist type.
Akron is drawn to Aymee because he seeks the type of relationship Jax has with Macy (book 1) and Aymee is drawn to Arkron out of curiosity and a drive to discover something that is missing in her life. Danger lurks in the form of hunters, who are investigating the mysterious Kraken and it is no longer safe for Aymee and Arkron to meet.
Jewel of the Sea is set in a fantastical world that is futuristic yet has lost its knowledge and technology over time. It is a strange mix that is built in descriptive detail. And with every novel, we get more and more backstory about what happened in the past that found the planet cut off from the rest of civilization. It will be interesting to see where the story goes from here.
