A Siren’s Hearts Desire by Melinda Clark
☆☆☆☆ of ☆☆☆☆☆
I enjoy books of all types and enjoyed Melinda’s rendition of an age old legend, the existence of Mermaids. Her book was filled with wonderful imagery and good explanations of the existence of the merfolk, as well as a purpose and exciting focus in a well written story.
I was impressed with her approach and the way she built the storyline as well as the characters and their zest for life. Her main characters were real and Marc was perhaps a little too nice. Some of the situations were well telegraphed but still any reader would enjoy the storyline and the twists and turns. I will not ruin the book with spoilers but suffice it to say that even though Melinda points out mankind’s flaws in several areas, from plastic to selfishness, she also notes (directly or indirectly) that merfolk are as flawed making the legend a little more real.
I enjoyed the character Karma and a brief interlude with one of my more favorite characters, death. If you want a fun read, dive in. A bit of strong sensuality is spattered in the story, but it does not diminish the well thought out plot and eventual end. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and suggest it is a good read for adults!
