A sweet, fun, and well developed fantasy romance. I liked that the characters were able to get to know each other before they fell in love. A nice change from all of the instant romance in the genre.
This is going to be a re-read for me. I have read this series, Water Lovers of Sirilon such a long time ago before I joined GR. And the 3rd book, Dead to the World was by far my most favorite of the series. I am thinking it would be a great time to re-read my favorite series especially that I am now kinda tired of all those boring standardized, formulaic romance with nerve grating forced HEAs. I am not against HEAs but those plastered on HEAs are unforgivable!
In a fantasy world full of mythology, Daro is a senu, a man with the ability to speak with the hrills, sea creatures who help the fishermen in their work. Daro is young and little knows about the world. He only wants to please the Lady of the Waters, the goddess who protects him and his world.One day he meets Arion: he speaks to him in the form of a hrill but he is a taleve, one of the Lady's lovers, who live in the Blue House, protects by the priests. Arion is lonely and wants only exchange some words and some informations with Daro. But days passes and Daro begins to undestand that his interest in Arion is not only friendship and the feeling is mutual. But it is not allows to love a taleve, they are fated to the Lady of the Waters.Arion is a supporting character: he is beautiful and handsome, but not a man of strong passions. He loves Daro, and wants to protect him, but, even if Daro is younger and weaker, he gives a stronger impression than Arion.Daro is young and willing; he accepts the destiny the Lady of the Waters has chosen for him without questioning. He only hopes to stay with Arion, but if the Lady wants something else for him, he will subsided to her will. Nevertheless he doesn't give me the impression of a character without wit.This is a gentle tale: a tale of love, but not of pain. Usually when I read about priests and goddess, I always meet hate and trouble, but in this tale you have a peaceful flows of events. The Lady of the Waters is not a negative character and the priests are not evil creatures who want to hide and corretc the shameful behaviour of Daro.http://www.amazon.com/dp/159426693X/?...
There was a lot more set up than I had expected, which I found myself enjoying. When the whole "romance" began, things progressed nicely too.
This was a short but sweet fantasy story with a nicely developed romance I read enjoyably in a day.
