Review: Tears of the Sea by:MaryLu Tyndall

Tears of the Sea
About the Book:
Doomed by the evil warlock Forwin to wander the ancient seas as a mermaid for all eternity, Perdita longs for the release death would bring. Every ten years she has a chance to break the curse when she emerges from the sea fully human for one month. The catch? She must find a man willing to die for her. After 300 years, her failures have left her heartbroken and alone.

Savion Ryne wants nothing to do with beautiful women. It was one such woman whose betrayal sent him far away to battle Natas’ rebellion. He longs to return to his father’s kingdom in Nevaeh but must first complete an unknown mission.

After Savion falls off his ship during a storm, he wakes on the shores of an island with visions of a dark haired mermaid tending his wounds. When a woman similar in appearance begs for his protection, he is suspicious.

Perdita has never met anyone as honorable as Savion. Even though he shuns her every advance, she falls for him. But as the end of her time on land approaches, she faces the hardest decision of all, save Savion and remain cursed for all eternity or break the curse and watch the man she loves die.

About the Author:
 With now more than fourteen books published, she makes no excuses for the deeply spiritual themes embedded within her romantic adventures. As a follower of Christ, her stories often reflect her own journey and walk with God. Her hope is that readers will not only be entertained but will be brought closer to the Creator who loves them beyond measure. In a culture that accepts the occult, wizards, zombies, and vampires without batting an eye, MaryLu hopes to show the awesome present and powerful acts of God in a dying world. A Christy award nominee, MaryLu makes her home with her husband, six children, and four cats on the California coast, where her imagination still surges with the sea.

My Review:
 Perdita has been a mermaid for almost 300 years, she longs to be free from this curse. An evil warlock, had given her the curse of being a mermaid, after she had refused to marry him. So now every ten years for one month, she is turned back into a human, searching for a man who truly loves her enough that he would die for her. But alas, that man has never come and she is still a mermaid.

 Captain Savion Ryne, feels like he has a curse of his own. After being burned once by love, he feels that all women are the enemy. After meeting Perdita, he starts to question his stance on women. Her kindness and beauty are unlike anything he has ever seen, she is magnificently beautiful. He tries to avoid her to no end, but she keeps coming along his path and onto his ship---so avoiding her is getting harder and harder to accomplish.

 As Perdita starts steadily trying to get him to fall for she finds herself falling deeper and deeper in love with him. The one thing that stands in their way of true love is this dreadful curse. Will the two of them ever get to be together or will one of them die first?

 A book packed with adventure, romance, and suspense---Tears of the Sea delivers it right to you! The author knows her craft well, this book is a page turner, for sure!
