I really am in love with Madly! (I’m not going to say I’m Mad about Madly…but I really want to!)
Michelle Leighton really got it right with her awesome mermaids. Yup, that’s right…mermaids! How awesome is that?!
I have to admit, I’ve been in quite the reading slump lately. I haven’t been crazy about much that I’ve read this summer. I think I was reading too much of the same thing. I was totally over reading the same stuff with different characters. Then, like in answer to a readers prayer, Madly came along. I totally got pulled into Madly and her world as soon as I started reading. That hasn’t been happening lately! I believe Madly’s world, her best friend Jersey, and the trouble with being a teenage mermaid who is also the future queen of the Mer.
I also loved the super hot Jackson/Madly/Aidan love story action. Madly is tied to Aiden. Jackson isn’t allowed. You can tell as soon as Jackson steps into the story that this forbidden super crush is going to be awesome & it doesn’t disappoint!
There are good guys, bad guys, mermaids, werewolves, and classic story telling-all of it is set to awesome.
I hope you check out the first two books of the Madly Series & visit Michelle’s blog to find out more about this great author! (She’s super fun, too, BTW!)
Mermaids. That is new & super exciting! Here’s the book info:
**INCLUDES BOOK 1 & 2 OF THE MADLY SERIES**
Madly is your average nearly eighteen year old girl—for a mermaid princess, that is.
Madly James is thoroughly enjoying her internship in Slumber when the unthinkable happens—there’s a prison break in Atlas, Madly’s home beneath the sea. A traitor has set free eight Lore, the spirits of what humans know as fairy tales, and they are making their way to Slumber to awaken their descendants.
The first spirit to arrive is that of Ulrich Wolfhardt, a man that was once obsessed with wolves and a young maiden he would follow through the woods. After a bite from a wolf, Wolfhardt’s obsession with the girl became an unnatural hunger and the young maiden’s grandmother cursed him with a fate worse than death. And now he’s back…with a vengeance and a bite that can infect others as well.
Madly must learn the identity of Wolfhardt’s descendant and stop him before he kills again and spreads his curse across the earth. But the only person strong enough to help Madly is Jackson, the Sentinel who vowed to protect her and the one person capable of breaking her heart. Can Madly resist forbidden love long enough to save the world from Wolfhardt? Or will she have to sacrifice her heart and her destiny to save the ones she loves?
