Captain Michael Biekert is notorious for being the youngest captain to sail as much as he has, charting discoveries of new lands and species. He's also notorious for landing his men in adventures they hadn't counted on--adventures involving cannibalistic mermaids and such.
When Michael decides to search for the legendary underwater city of the Larimar people, he doesn't account for the adventure that follows. Rescued from shipwreck by a mysterious, beautiful young lady who walks on water and carries a singing sea shell around her neck, he soon finds himself reunited with an old friend once though lost to him and fighting to save her people from an ancient evil.
I received a copy of this story from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I was immediately drawn into this story--Michael's character played a large role in that. He's brave and puts the safety of his crew before his own, and I really admired that about him. He gave up a life of luxury as a prince to become an explorer. I wanted to know about their past adventures before the one they embark on in this story. They sounded exciting and dangerous and would make for awesome reading!
Natalie was also a character I loved. She was dreamy and mystical, and I really appreciated the relationship between Michael and Natalie because it was different and special. I did find myself rooting for them to get together; I just couldn't help myself! I'm a sucker for romance. :)
This story was beautiful, a little dark, and magical. I loved all of the elements that were incorporated into the telling, and I highly recommend reading this. It was completely original and extraordinary. :D
Larimar: Gem of the Sea, is a story from The Legends of Surprisers Books II and III, published 2010.
