Not just a light and breezy book to read through and forget…. the author gives the reader a lot to think about regarding forgiveness, one’s purpose, and moving forward.
There is truly something romantic and mysterious about the water. It fills me with a peace and intrigue I can not fully explain. I think the author must feel the same way because in Makai Queen, the book shares a place under the ocean that I have only dreamed of.
This story takes lots of twists and turns to the end, but you will be left with a sense of anticipation for a possible sequel. The mysteries and delights of the water are unfathomable and the possibilities for where this story can continue to go are endless as well.
Our heroine, Tessa, has a lot of past hurts to work through and acknowledge before she can move on into her destiny.
