WHAT IS DOUBLE EXCITING IS I HAVE A GUEST REVIEWER, CLAUDIA DID A GREAT JOB WITH THIS ONE, SO LET'S GET TO IT: I HAVE HER REVIEW, LINKS, AND EVEN AN EXCERPT (SPOILER ALERT ON THE EXCERPT IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE FIRST TWO BOOKS IN THE SERIES, SO BE CAREFUL ;P):
CLAUDIA PICKED THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS SPLENDID BOOK! HERE IS HER REVIEW:
Running with the Wind (Mermen of Ea #3) by: Shira Anthony
reviewed by: Claudia
With the final confrontation between the island and mainland Ea factions looming, Taren and Ian sail with Odhrán to investigate a lost colony of merfolk in the Eastern Lands. Upon their arrival, the King of Astenya welcomes them as friends. Odhrán, however, isn’t so quick to trust the descendent of the man who held him prisoner for nearly a decade, especially now that he has someone to cherish and protect—the mysterious winged boy he rescued from the depths.
Armed with the knowledge he believes will save the Ea, Taren returns to the mainland. With Ian at his side, Taren convinces Vurin that their people must unite with their island brethren before it’s too late. When Seria and his men attack, Taren must call upon the ancient power of the rune stone to protect his comrades. But using the stone’s immeasurable power commands a hefty price—and Ian fears that price is Taren’s life.
If you, like me, couldn’t wait to read more about Taren, Ian and Odhran , the wait is over… Today is release day!!! And I’m so glad I got to review this amazing book.
If you haven’t read this series yet, you cannot miss it!
Taren was a slave for all of his life… when he’s kidnapped by a pirate, he finally feels the freedom for the first time and when he meets Ian, his life changes in ways he couldn’t ever imagine. He discovers that Ian is a shape-shifting merfolk, called EA, and he is one of them too.
Taren believes he can save his people, the EA, but he will need more than just his powers to do it. He will need the support of Ian and his friends.
After all the anguish and uncertainty from Into the Wind, we get to finally know all the turns in Taren and Ian’s life to fulfill their Destiny, and wow, I couldn’t put this book down… My heart went out to Ian and Taren, while they tried to put their fears and doubts to rest and trust in their bond, in the love, so prepare yourself for one more great ride through the EA world.
The amazing secondary characters in this story are an additional charm and make you wish for more. I know this is the last book of Ian and Taren’s story, but there are hints of a new story and I’m hoping Odhrán will get his own story, because he so deserves a HEA too.
Thank you Shira for this amazing reading and thanks Bec for allowing me to review it.
