The Luck Child by Rebekah Shafer
I LOVE this book! Plenty of humor, a dash of romance and loads of adventure. I would be delighted to explore this world with my own talking cat and fairy tale companions.
Cabernet would give almost anything to be remembered--except his freedom.Cursed to be eternally forgotten, Cabernet grew up walking a dangerous, lonely line between the world of mankind and the world of fairy. Now known only by a faceless reputation as a rogue and fairy aficionado, he wanders ceaselessly with the cat Maugrim as company.Then the king dares order him to eliminate a magical foe in northern waters, and threatens to attack fairy lands if Cabernet refuses. As an increased annoyance, he is saddled with a stiff naval officer, the king’s elderly personal advisor, and the advisor’s nurse, a charming young woman named Rosemary who can inexplicably remember him.Cabernet wants to complete this mission quickly without actually facing the enemy, a dangerous enchantress who nearly killed him before. But sea perils and fearsome monsters blindside his every trick and turn. Moreover, he is somehow growing fiercely attached to the human tag-a-longs.As the enchantress’s deadly net tightens around them, Cabernet must face the terrors of his past in order to save his new-found family--and future.
Breakwater by Catherine Jones Payne
I'm not a huge mermaid fan, but this book may have changed that! Political Intrigue and mermaids make a great combination! I love the character growth from all of the characters and the plot! I was so ready for the next book the moment I finished the last word of this one. Thank goodness they had a bonus chapter from the next book at the end!
