Top 5 Fantasy Mermaids, Pirates & Sea Creatures Books Picks – May 2019

These are my top 5 picks for fantasy books about mermaids, pirates and deep sea creatures for May 2019

Set sail for these fantastic adventures.


I haven’t read all of them but they do look interesting based on the blurbs and their covers. Give them a chance.

1) The Pirate Princess by K.R. Martin

Book 1 of the Sovereigns of the Seas series

This is not your average damsel in distress story. No. This tale wraps you up in tangled nets of mysteries and casts you off on an adventure non like any others involving mistaken identities and swash buckling pirates.

Get it now

2) Water and Blood by B. Kristin McMichael

1st book of The Merworld Trilogy

Vampire mermaids? Maybe. For I cannot tell you for I haven’t read this story yet but that is the impression that I get from the blurb.

It is an interesting idea… mermaids + vampires… what could possibly go wrong?

Get it now

3) Mermaid Academy by Cameron Drake, Illustrated by LJ Anderson and Edited by Valorie Clifton

Stand Alone Novel (but Cameron Drake did write other mermaid stories too)

Hunger Games anyone?

No, not really Hunger Games but the blurb sings of high packed action within this coming of age fantasy plus a little bit of romance dabbled into the plot.

If you love savvy ladies then I would suggest that you give this story a try for it promises to be a real page turner!

Get it now

4) The Mermaids Lament by Alexes Razevich

Book 1 of the Shay Greene Series

Yeah, you seem like the type that would love this story.

Heck, who wouldn’t love a story about a gal that has to steal back a necklace from the supernatural and not get killed while doing it.

Top 5 Urban Fantasy Mystery Books Picks – April 2019

These are my top 5 picks for mystery fantasy books for April 2019

Each of them are perfect to read on a rainy day.

I haven’t read all of them but they do look interesting based on the blurbs and their covers. Give them a chance.

1) Death Rites by E.A. Copen

Book 1 of the Lazarus Codex series

I’ve always been curious about this series and had been putting it off because it reminded me of the Dresden Files. Nonetheless, it still called to me which is why it’s listed first.

What’s it about? Well, the story revolves around an ex-convict who happens to be a necromancer. Unlike Harry Dresden who eventually tangles himself up with the law… the law for Lazarus Kerrigan is already breathing down his neck for a murder he didn’t commit.

Intrigued? You can’t resist this book forever.

Get it now

2) Bramble and Blood by Ashley Beasley

1st book in the urban fantasy series Eve Williams

Has your book pile been feeling lonely lately? Or are you looking for another great story?

Then check out Bramble and Blood by Ashley Beasley from the urban fantasy series Eve Williams.

It’s about Eve Williams who happens to be a necromancer but gets cast aside by the magic community when she made a crucial mistake thus destroying her reputation.

Though that doesn’t get her down. No, instead she fights to make a living until she gets a job to find a missing woman which uncovers a larger scheme of mishaps involving murder.

Will Eve be able to stop these string of murders or will she be pushed beyond her breaking point as she faces off with betrayals, trolls and broken alliances?

If you like Patricia Briggs or Faith Hunter then you’ll love Bramble and Blood

Get it now

3) Burned to a Crisp: Gingerbread Hag Mystery by K. A. Miltimore

Book 1 of the Gingerbread Hag Mystery Series

This title caught my eye. I haven’t read it yet but it is on my TBR list.

It appears to be a spin off of the Hansel & Gretal story which was one of my favorites when I was a child.

If you love Hansel & Gretal then this story should not be skipped at all. It certainly appears to have a twist on the old-time childhood story filled with mystery, murder and of course baked goods!

So grab your cookies, cakes and pie and read this seemingly awesome spin to Hansel & Gretal.

Get it now

4) GhostRealm by Vera Sparks

Book 2 of the Portland Ivy Series

I know it’s absurd to recommend the second book of a series but to be honest this one was interesting.

So, in this book Ivy is working with her werewolf friends to track down a killer. On top of that she is learning more about her powers and what she truly is… for she isn’t dead, alive or even a vampire… she’s completely different.

Get it now

Oh, while you’re at it you can snag a copy of GhostBound, book 1 of the Portland Ivy Series

5) Beneath the Sleepless Stars by Charisse Nicolle

Stand Alone Novel

Love, Mysteries and Revenge

Another book to be read. I have not read it but the blurb is promising

Sapphira is like everybody else. A girl trying to make ends meet and to forge her own path. She doesn’t want to take up the family business because she wants to be a designer.

It is at night when she is haunted by dreams with clues and messages that are puzzling. As she digs more into these dreams she discovers her heritage and an ancient feud. Worse, yet, Sapphira finds herself being pursued by an centuries-old foe.

To survive, Sapphira must fight to chase her dreams but, will she be strong enough?

Moon Marked – MerWere Saga Book 1

Moon Marked – MerWere Saga Book 1

It begins… FINALLY.

Yes, I know I’ve been promoting the crap out of this saga and you’ve been patiently waiting for me to get my crap in order but I needed some time to get the pieces in place and to work out some of the kinks.

Some of those kinks were character names. I couldn’t stand Dustin’s name, the werewolf, and it kept on switching  between Dillon, Darren and other ridiculous names. Finally, I settled on Daniel which I think suits him rather well.

The other leading character, the mermaid, Shimmer had a name change as well. Her new name is Luna but don’t worry for she still has Shimmer as her last name.

Over this weekend I will be posting the chapters that SHOULD HAVE been posted in January 2019 ALL the way up to TODAY’s post.

TONIGHT, that’s 2/8/2019, I will post Chapter 1 for Moon Marked – MerWere Saga Book 1

Then keep checking back over this weekend (Feb 8-10 2019) for the other five chapters to be released.

We’re calling this weekend Catch-Up MerWere Saga Weekend.

Are you excited that you’ll finally get to start reading this weekly blog story?
