The Sea King by C. L. Wilson

The Sea King (Weathermages of Mystral, #2)

by C. L. Wilson

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Winter King comes a breathtaking new tale of love and adventure set in the mystical land of Mystral

He wasn’t supposed to choose her…

Seafaring prince Dilys Merimydion has been invited to court the three magical princesses of Summerlea. To eradicate the pirates threatening Calberna and to secure the power of the Sea Throne, Dilys vows to return home with a fierce warrior-queen as his bride. But politics has nothing to do with unexpected temptation.

She didn't dare wed him...

A weathermage like her sisters, Gabriella Coruscate’s gentleness exemplifies the qualities of her season name, Summer. Yet her quiet poise conceals dangerous powers she cannot begin to wield. Better to live without excitement, she reasons, than risk her heart and lose control—until an irresistible Sealord jolts her awake with a thunderclap of raw desire.

Until evil threatens everything they hold dear…

When pirates kidnap Summer and her sisters, Dilys begins a desperate quest to save the woman he loves. Only by combining his command of the seas with the unleashed fury of Summer’s formidable gifts can they defeat their brutal enemies and claim the most priceless victory of all: true love.

5 of 5 stars

After I finished the previous book, I immediately ordered the second one. I could not get enough of the story, characters and world that C.L. Wilson created. Upon finally receiving The Sea King there was a bit of fear that my expectations were spun too high before I started, as this book will be told from different characters. Characters who I've met, but did not spend a lot of time with. Would I therefore enjoy it as much?

I did not need to be hesitant. The Sea King was once again a more than enjoyable read that delves deeper in to the vivid and entertaining world that this author lets us discover. Of course we meet our beloved characters from the first book, but there's also plenty of time to get to know and fall in love with our seemingly sweet Gabriella, aka Summer and the dashing Sea Lord Dilys. Then there’s the story that only get’s better with each page you turn and as a cherry on top we have the romance that sprouts between our two MC’s.

Meaningless to say this book, this series, has once again got me hooked and would not let me go till long after I finished. I obviously can’t wait to read the next book, The Jaguar King. The name alone has me as an avid shifter lover giddy on the inside. I so hope it will be published soon!
