Can angels in all their glory lose hope? Or the will to live on? Jonah is the Prime Legion Commander and whenever the Dark Ones try to attack, he and his men are the first to defend the world. But immortal does not mean invulnerable to pain. Immortal does not mean one cannot be killed. And after fighting so hard and for so long, only to see so many of his brethren die, Jonah lost the desire to keep on fighting. Noticing his moment of weakness, a Dark One cuts off one of his wings, and Jonah falls from the sky and into the sea awaiting the bliss of oblivion only to wake from unconsciousness in the arms of a young mermaid.
There are many men that walk the land and many mermaids and mermen who swim in the ocean but there is only one like Anna. Born in a cursed line of mermaids, different from anyone else, Anna leads a lonely life. Yet even still, Anna does not stop hoping for a better future. Even when she finds a hurt angel demanding that he be left to die, Anna cannot find it in her heart to let that happen. Somehow she feels that it is her fate to return his lost hope to him and heal not only his injured wing but also his injured heart.
Of course it is always easier said than done. The Dark Ones have not ceased in their chase for Jonah. Dark Ones and angels are preparing for the biggest battle yet and Jonah is the key. For what is the best way to hurt an angel? To destroy his heart and end his existence? Or take his heart and keep it under their control?
Who knew an angel seeks answers like every human in the world? And who knew the faith and courage of one little mermaid has the potential to change the entire world?
A Mermaid’s Kiss is truly awe-inspiring. Blood and sacrifice, love and faith, courage and hope. It is all in this story. The only complaint I could possibly have is that there was a lot of sex, which in reality is not a bad thing. The references to the realms of heaven and hell as well as the deities could have also been a bit more simplified for the reader but on the other hand when is it ever simple. This is still a wonderful read that simply will draw you into the pages that shows a very human side to an ethereal being and an angelic quality from a mere mortal.
