This is one of my two favorite books in the world!!! At least until I write book 3, and then it will one of my three favorite books in the world! I don't play favorites-I love all my books equally.
Okay! could this get any better?, well that's not a question at all. It wasn't better it was AWESOME BABY!!! I don't know any awesome word other than awesome,lolG!!!!!!!! I don't have words. Author Holly Kelly have left me speechless again and I'm much more in love with this series after reading Descending. This is a definitely a must read. I always say this at the end but I'm going to add a spoiler in the end, so you may want to stop(it's in the last parah). This book and the series is awesome [...]
Fantastic Read!I am so tickled with this read. Holly Kelly doesn't disappoint with the continuation of this series. This second book is actually more exciting as in the readers not only get more of a happy ever after love story by matching up the handsome and fierce Dagonian Kyros with Gretchen (Best Friend of Sara the Mermaid/Triton’s daughter) the Attorney intern but a greater insight to expanding the plot for future books to add to the series. First the story is amazing and very emotionally [...]
Reel em' In!OMG are these Men from the deep hot or what?? I thought I was in love with Xanthus, but now I'm in love with Kyros tooHolly Kelly has proved once again how great a writer she is.What a fantastic story and nothing like I ever in my wildest dreams thought would happen. There are surprises throughout the story.Horror at what a mother is capable of and the lengths that a man in love would go.There is action, suspense and a love unmatched!I was pivoted to my seat throughout the whole stor [...]
These books are a bit corny and a bit romanticy but I think they are cute and I love reading them. The storyline is sort of epic and I like the authors take on the mythology and the fish out of water comedy is adorableA: On a more personal note I am in a wheelchair and so felt a lot of the pains that our heroine did. From my life experience the authors portrayal of stubborn independence reminded me so much of myself.
I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel. It took a little bit for me to get into but once I did it didn't let up. This story focused more on Kyros and Gretchen but also included characters we know and love from the first book as well as some new characters. I loved the different plot twists and can't wait to see where the story goes next. We get a deeper look into mermaids and learn more about this underwater world the author created.
Wow!! I didn't think I'd like Mermaid fiction until I read Rising. I loved Rising and was anxious to read Descending. Descending was everything I hoped for and more. I can hardly wait for the third book. If you want clean romance with some action, this is it.
Loved this book. The author does such an awesome job keeping you turning the pages. It's just such a fun storyline. I highly recommend it. Can't wait for the next one!
Wow, where to begin. Long before I became friends with the extremely talented and ultra-brilliant Holly Kelly, I was interested in the premise of her debut novel, Rising – a tightly written thriller-romance about a noble Dagonian (a tough, more masculine version of the traditional merpeople) on a quest to eliminate a group of humans responsible for the deaths of thousands of their kind via a toxic waste dump into the ocean. He ventures ashore to make peace with the humans before an all-out ass [...]
I won this book through First reads and I am so happy I did.I love reading series so I had to buy the first book to know what was going to happen in this book. Let me tell you that this book was amazing. The different conflicts and emotions of all involved and realizing just like in real life that prejudice comes from not knowing the truth. You believe what others tell you when you are little and unless you seek the truth the prejudice stays with you.This book takes a good look at that when you [...]
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*In Rising we briefly met Xanthus' best friend Kyros and Sara's best friend Gretchen- Descending is their story. I actually loved this book even more than the first! The plot becomes much more complex in this one, and there are surprises at every turn. And I mean BIG, gasp-inducing surprises! I love when a book can completely throw me for a loop and that definitely happened here. I loved Gretchen immediately in Rising and my love for her only [...]
A couple du jour romance series with undersea folk and mythology that takes place on both land and sea. Kyros, a Dagonian and best friend to Xanthus from the first book, has a really good reason to hate humans and shares his species’ prejudice of mermaids. The problem is that Xanthus is married to Sara who is half human/half mermaid and he’s asking for help guarding her on land while Xanthus follows through on his personal mission to prevent a war the humans don’t know is coming.Gretchen i [...]
After readingRising, #1 Rising, I was super excited to read this because I love the fact that it had Mermaids! Again!!So although this book was along the same lines as the first one, I loved it because it had mermaids!! Hellooooo!! I'm being silly, really.In this one, the heroine knows what she is and is actively trying to hide that fact, but the twist! Wow, just wow I didn't see that coming, nor was I prepared for who her father was! Like wtf dude, that was kind of badass!Totally cool book so g [...]
I loved this! I finished this in one day as that's how hooked I was, same experience as the first book!However I'm still re-reading both books still!!! I loved how this turned out. I re-read the book and was still really hooked and laughing at the funny parts. I felt that Gretchen and Kyros were adorable as a couple but I still loved Xanthus and Sara the best. But this book was more focused on Gretchen and Kyros which was so entertaining. I liked the fact that it felt like the book story line we [...]
I received a free copy in return for an honest review. I read the first book in this series, and really liked it a lot. This book picks up where the first book left of. Xanthus must finish his task for Triton on earth, and in order to keep his wife Sara safe, he enlists 5 Dagonian warriors to watch over her. Her friend Gretchen comes to see her, and an someone tries to kill Gretchen.Kyros, Xanthus' best friend, who hates everything human, soon falls for Gretchen and assumes the role of her prote [...]
This was a great second book to follow "Rising". It was engaging, fast paced, and had characters that you feel like you know. Yes, it's a mermaid kind of book, but there aren't mermaids like you've ever known. This is what I would classify as a clean romance. There is chemistry and attraction and kissing but nothing that crosses that line. Characters from the first book are still prominent in this book so it felt like hanging out with old friends.What I love about this book is that you can go on [...]
I loved Uprising, but Descending managed to top it. This book has it all - brave heroes, women who are just as strong, action, and a brief glimpse at the quest to come. It was wonderful to see Xanthus and Sara again, but this time through Gretchen's adventure. The mix of various mythologies is very entertaining, and the world Holly created is fascinating, alternating between beautiful and dangerous. The romance element is perfectly balanced with swoon worthy moments and sweet declarations that m [...]
This was a pretty good book. A continuation of the last book it takes the characters to all new places. Not always good places, but new nonetheless. I loved how some of the old characters were able to gain new depths while shifting the focus onto other characters. I do think that at this rate she will have to write about twenty more books before a full picture of the circumstances can develop, but this might be the beginning of another Dark-Hunter or Shifters series. Only time will tell.
This is the first book I read in 2016 and I'm really happy I did because I love it!!! Descending is book 2 of the Rising series. This book is more about the story of Gretchen and Kyros, but don't worry Xanthus and Sara are still an important part of book.Please keep reading the review in my blogtwofriendsview.wordpress/
I loved Rising and couldn't wait to continue the adventure. I found that this book was just as great as the first. I loved the spicy friction, and stubbornness. There are some secrets that you will not see coming!seeingdoubleinneverlandsp
Wild rideThis was a great story. Good against evil. The characters are likable and funny. There was constant action. The imagination of Holly Kelly is remarkable. I highly recommend this book.
This was such a great book. I loved going through the story with Gretchen. She grew up with a horrible mother, but found her way. Kyros was definitely more stubborn than Xanthus. All turned out well for them though. I cannot wait for the next book to come out.
I like reading about mermaids and mythology. This was a fun read, and nice and clean!
When is the next one coming out???? I want drAk?n's story
I cannot decide if I liked this one or the first one better. They were both great! I was pleasantly surprised to find out (view spoiler)[ Gretchen isn't human! (hide spoiler)]. I want more!
Mermaids, who doesn't love them. Two races must over come many obstacles to find peace and happiness. I loved this story.
I loved this book even more than the first! I always like reading stories from different character's POV's, and this one catered to needs, as did the first. I love Sara and Xanthus together, but I have to say that (view spoiler)[ Gretchen and Kyros give them a run for their money(hide spoiler)]. I loved the story and all the plot twists, and how seemingly unrelated events come together. I read this book while I was driving to and from a choir competition.Like the previous book, this was very cle [...]
Romance and the oceanI thought this book was very entertaining and loved the new characters, Kyros and Gretchen. Can't wait for the next book, I want to see what happens to the baby and Triton!
So in love with this series.I liked the action and the intrigue throughout this tale. There were a few revelations that had me tickled. I really loved watching the maturing of each character. I cannot wait for the next ride.
I like the fantasy elements but, as with the first book, the romance part is the weakest part of the book and hurts overall. I don't think I will be finishing the series.
