BLURB

For as long as Esmerine can remember, she has longed to join her older sister, Dosinia, as a siren--the highest calling a mermaid can have. When Dosinia runs away to the mainland, Esmerine is sent to retrieve her. Using magic to transform her tail into legs, she makes her way unsteadily to the capital city. There she comes upon a friend she hasn't seen since childhood--a dashing young man named Alandare, who belongs to a winged race of people. As Esmerine and Alandare band together to search for Dosinia, they rekindle a friendship . . . and ignite the emotions for a love so great, it cannot be bound by sea, land, or air.



REVIEW

"If anyone asks, we are married," he whispered. "I'm not letting you out of my sight here."


This book blew me away! Jaclyn takes you into a beautifully written adventure and romance that will leave you stunned and completley speechless!

This story follow Esmerine, Esmerine has just been given the title of a Siren, and  couldn't be happier about bringing such an honor to her family, but then her older sister Dosinia who is also a Siren goes missing, everyone believes the worst. That a human man has captured her and forced her to be his wife, but Esmerine needs to know for sure what happened to her sister. So she sets out to land to find her..and not alone, Esmerine finds her old friend Alan who is a winged man who agrees to help her find Dosinia.  With her connection to Alan getting stronger each moment they are together, she wonders if once she finds her sister she will have to make a descision of her own, return to the sea that she loves with her family and leave Alan..or live every day in pain on land to be with Alan..

What a delight this story ended up being! Jaclyn writting is so beautiful I found myself completly consumed into Between the Sea and Sky and had to stay up all night until I finished the very last page, and then once I finished all I wanted was to be sucked back in!

The characters in this book were writen up amazingly, they each developed in there own ways and each had personality traits that I adored. Dosinia matures greatly, Esmerine discovers what she truely wants, Alan opens up, and Alans father even shows growth with in the short 240 amazin pages of Between the Sea and Sky.

While every aspect of this story was utterly captivating. I found myself espicially drawn to the world and the romance that Jaclyn has put together. I have never read a book that combines Mermaids, and winged people. It was a refesing new paranormal romance that I believe any person that enjoys paranormal romance, will completly fall in love with this creative match Jaclyn has put together. 

All in all, this review has not done any justice to this book. This book is just one I would recommend to anyone. I completly fell in love with this book, I fell in love with the characters, the soft romance between Esmerine and Alan, the adventure they embark on, everything about this story will pull you in. This is a must read!

Wanna order Between the Sea and Sky?
