The Sunken Realm by Serena Chase continues where The Seahorse Legacy left off. For a quick recap, these two books are the second half to the Eyes of E’veria series and the story centers around Cazien (pirate, scoundrel, and heir to the Seahorse Legacy) and Eirelle (ex-knight).

The Seahorse Legacy left off on a major cliffhanger. Cazien, in order to preserve the Seahorse Legacy, a legacy that gives him power over the sea and the ability to protect mankind, is threatened when a prophecy surfaces that states that he must marry the Oracle’s Daughter (Eirelle) or risk losing everything. Being a pirate and stubborn, he refuses to let a prophecy dictate his life. Unfortunately, his choice leads to Eirelle being captured and beaten almost to death before he realizes he needs to fulfill the words of his ancestors. So Cazien finds Eirelle and marries her.
Unfortunately for Eirelle, she never knew about the prophecy and in a medicinal and pain induced haze, she agrees to marry Cazien, only to wake up later and not remember the event.
This is where The Sunken Realm begins.
I’ve waited over a year to find out what happens next in this series and Serena does not disappoint. The love between pirate and ex-knight grows as they learn what it means to cherish each other and appreciate one another’s strength. Together, they are better than when apart. And together they must search for the hundreds of children who have been kidnapped along the seacoast before the children are used and disposed of.
Pirates, awesome arena fight scenes, intrigue, and true love. What more could you ask for? 🙂
I highly recommend this entire fantasy series to pre-teens and up. Here is a link where you can purchase the series: http://www.amazon.com
