Length: 8 hours, 39 minutes
Series: The Mer Chronicles #2
Publisher: Errin Stevens
Publish Date: November 25, 2016
Genre: Paranormal Romance
The sirens of Griffins Bay are in trouble, and the recent slew of royal suicides looks to be the least of their worries.
For one, unless a blood relative of the queen shows up, no one’s around to staff the monarchy. Well, except for a whack-job bureaucrat and he seriously won’t do. Worse is the community unrest threatening siren society, a problem caused by too many humans in the pool, which means Simon and his off-limit girlfriend will have to run and hide if they want to make more of their flirtation…
The solution doesn’t inspire confidence at first, but the Blakes have everything at hand to set their world to rights – namely, a hidden queen, a dead prince, and a facility for human manipulation. Once they find their sea legs, they’ll restore order, distribute smart phones, and drive that conniving bureaucrat to a grisly, satisfying end.

Disclaimer: I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Errin Stevens. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
I kind of liked not having to follow around Kate all the time in this one. With the introduction of some new characters, the cast could seem like a lot to handle, and personally I don’t remember all of them that did end up showing up, but it was much more interesting than Kate and Gabe and their love story. They were pretty much done telling their story, and now the sirens were having a lot more drama involved that didn’t completely involve romance.
Again, Posvistak narrates this book – which I’m glad that Stevens kept him for the entire series – and does a great job staying neutral throughout the story. It works out that there are so many characters that Posvistak can follow around because his voice works out as an omniscient narrator hopping around from North Carolina and Shaddox. It just works.
The twist at the end was pretty twisted, and I was thinking that it was going to happen so I wasn’t entirely shocked about it, but I liked how Stevens tied everything together in this novel.
