First story was terribly predictable, but the second was quite the page-turner, and the third had the most well-executed, understated plot-twist, so I give the book a happy 4 stars. ( )
  NeitherNora | Sep 7, 2013 |
not the best Abe book, but still pretty good. It follows 3 generations of mer people, going through the love and loss of each. It's a little slow in spots, but it does pick up. A little anti-climactic at the end, but at least it gets the message across, aka, the theme..."if you love something, let it go; if it comes back, (or chooses to stay) it is yours. If not, it was never meant to be." Or...A bird can only live in captivity if you give it the freedom to fly away. ( )

An extremely slow read.
A place out of legend, a battle for supremacy, t
he young lord finds himself trapped in a mermaid's castle.

At first I was really into this novel, but about halfway through I totally lost interest. The story was convoluted and didn't have enough going for it to keep me interested. Rather disappointing overall. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
For Darren, who loves me. And for Wendy McCurdy, who saw the promise of three love stories in just a few rough sentences.Mucho aprecio also to Annelise Robey and Andrea Cirillo, and to the family, or course, because they always get a thanks.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553584979, Mass Market Paperback)

Shana Abé has entranced countless readers with her passion-filled novels of adventure, intrigue, and romance. Now the author of The Secret Swan delivers a gift from the sea: three hauntingly beautiful tales connected by a legend, a locket, and a love beyond time.

531 a.d.: The tiny island of Kell is said to be enchanted, inhabited by an extraordinary creature who comforts shipwrecked sailors passing into the next world. Prince Aedan of the Isles believes in no such nonsense—until he awakens on Kell itself and meets the sensuous siren who rescued him from the sea.

1721: Ronan MacMhuirich, Earl of Kell, is the target of an unlikely assassin: Leila, a mysterious woman from an exotic land. But his irresistibly beautiful would-be slayer is in just as much danger as Ronan when she falls for this man with a magic of his own.

2004: What do you do when you inherit a Scottish island you never knew existed—and find yourself pursued by a handsome stranger who wants to buy it from you? That’s what happens to Ruri Kell when she accepts Iain MacInnes’s invitation to visit her birthright, and listens to a proposition as sinfully tempting as everything else about him.

Three seductive love stories, three passionate couples, all linked by one of the most romantic myths of all.
