This story is definitely not something I would normally choose to read. But in true Bethany-Kris fashion she delivered us a new world with her version of The Little Mermaid and it was phenomenal. The story is unique as she gives us Arelle and Eryx, a mermaid and a prince, who fall for one another despite them being the hunter and the prey. These two unlikely pair have great chemistry. The tumultuous tides of the storm is as rocky as the development of their relationship but they navigate through it and forge a connection so deep that in the end it makes things worth it. I’m looking forward to the next books in what is to be a fantastic series.
THE HUNTED, a dark fairy tale retelling
by Bethany-KrisPublication Date: January 6, 2020Genres: Adult, Dark Fantasy, Romance, Paranormal Elements, Fairy Tale, The Little Mermaid
Let the hunt begin …
After witnessing the murder of his mother by a mermaid, Prince Eryx Bloodhurst of Atlas makes a deal to sedate his need for vengeance: they’ll catch the mermaid who did the deed, but he’ll pay for it with his crown.
Arelle, third princess of the Blu Sea, has never known the true cruelty of the forbidden lands firsthand, but she will soon. The halfling prince with murder in his eyes and the sea’s songs in his blood will make sure of that.
He should kill her.Perhaps, keeping her might be worse.
Two kingdoms are falling. One king is losing it all and another threatens to ruin everything. The rules of the land and sea are changing. Secrets of the past are spilling.
And all because of a prince and his little mermaid—whether they live or die—nothing in the realm will ever be the same.
In The Hunted, Bethany-Kris opens a new world—the 9INE REALMS—for readers with a dark fairy tale retelling, and pulls inspiration from the cult classic favorite and the Hans Christian Andersen original to redefine what it means to be The Little Mermaid.
