Today I wanted to tell you about an amazing novel by author Errin Stevens. We featured Stevens in our subscription box – Literary Vacation Club – this past August for her novel Updrift, and I am in love with her work! Stevens paints with her words, and her take on the classic mermaid mythology is magical. Her novels read like grown-up fairytales, and I highly recommend them! Stevens recently released the sequel to Updrift entitled Breakwater and I am so excited to share it with you. These novels are great for adults who miss the fairytales from their childhoods, and they are sure to bring magic to your life.
The sirens of Griffins Bay are in trouble, and the recent slew of royal suicides looks to be the least of their worries.
For one, unless a blood relative of the queen shows up, no one’s around to staff the monarchy. Well, except for a whack-job bureaucrat and he seriously won’t do. Worse is the community unrest threatening siren society, a problem caused by too many humans in the pool, which means Simon and his off-limit girlfriend will have to run and hide if they want to make more of their flirtation…
The solution doesn’t inspire confidence at first, but the Blakes have everything at hand to set their world to rights – namely, a hidden queen, a dead prince, and a facility for human manipulation. Once they find their sea legs, they’ll restore order, distribute smart phones, and drive that conniving bureaucrat to a grisly, satisfying end.
