I enjoyed this, but not as much as the first in the series.
I am, however, relieved, because I wasn't sure if I would like reading about Annika, the mermaid, as a romantic lead. She seemed so innocent in the first book that I was just afraid that the romance between her and Sawyer would come off kind of...skeevy.
Thankfully, in my opinion, it didn't.
This book made it more clear that while Annika is innocent to the ways of those who walk on the land, and she possesses a joyous innate goodness and purity, she's not at all child-like. Yes, she confuses words and phrases, but she's intelligent and wise and knows what (who) she wants. It's also made clear that while her first time with Sawyer is her first time while she has legs, it's not her first time ever. Theirs was a very sweet romance.
The story of finding the stars before the evil goddess does is still intriguing, and I can't wait to get to the last book to see how it all plays out.
I probably would rated this one 3.5 stars, but I'm knocking a half star off for the surprise mermaid/human sex scene.
