Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling 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.

10 hours in and...

The female lead (Summer) is so annoying to me as a character it’s honestly hard for me to want to finish this book. She is overly dramatic thinking she can’t fall in love because she’s too ~intensely and unpredictably powerful~, and she’s supposedly extremely close to her sisters but keeps secrets from them for dumb ridiculous reasons, doesn’t listen to other people or common sense and honestly isn’t adventurous or exciting at all.

I loved the first book and I’m shocked at how this one is turning out. She lives her entire life not understanding her powers and when Dilas comes in and explains what she is and what it means she doesn’t believe him, doesn’t check into it, doesn’t consider his words or reconsider her own diagnosis (“my powers are so weird I mean literally everyone around me has different magical powers and can do insane shit but hmmm I’m probably just going crazy and I should prob kill my self”). Fuck off Summer, that’s all I have to say.

Also the writing is so long winded I had to speed up the narration just so I can finish this before I die. All this being said, I will probably read the next installment just because the other two sisters seem to have much more life and intelligence than Summer. Please let that be the case at least.

Mixed Feelings - Loved & Hated

Really enjoyed the audio books written by this author & was excited to find another. This is first story of aquatic people I’ve listened to.. LOVE the world the author skillfully creates & the growth of the characters. I was grinning with anticipation to hear the banter & what happened next & could feel what they felt. If the H hadn’t been so strong of character & masculinity I would have struggled with his role of subservience. The h was all I could have hoped for.

Loss of one star: I hated the story line of GRAPHIC molestation. HATED!!! I almost stopped listening at that point.

Loss of second star: Anytime I have to fast forward thru the graphic sex scenes I take one star off. I like a healthy dose of steam, but don’t like to have sex with them.

I’m hooked for the series, just hoping I don’t have to bail if DETAILED molestation is part of the future books. I read fantasy for entertainment. A TRIGGER warning should be placed on the description. As a counselor, I know too many people this would have taken unawares.

Another excellent listen from Wilson

As always, Wilson delivered another excellent story with wonderful world building, an exciting plot line, and sizzling romance. This is perhaps my favorite book of hers yet. The heroine struggles with the very contemporary theme of maintaining an outward facade of the calm, smiling female, and later must overcome a great trauma. It made for a protagonist with more depth than the average swooning, naive maiden in the romance drama. The performance was also excellent. A good listen for Sarah J Maas fans. Looking forward to the next installment!

Very fulfilling novel

I haven't been this fulfilled by a novel in quite some time probably since reading pride & prejudice along with the Winter King the 1st novel of this collection and Beneath a Scarlet Sky.... this author is a force to be reckoned with. Of course I have read many novels that measure up, but her style of writing is excellent and her words move you and make you feel the actual characters. I hate how they just categorize this book as just a romance. To me it's not as well as to a male friend I let listen in. He said the first book is just as good as GOT it have love, but war, and death as well. I have to agree, I feel as though it may be slightly better. I can't wait for the next book. Since there is a twist at the end I know there's one coming.

Where's book 3?

This author exceeded my expectations. The story was gripping, exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see how the summer princess would win the day. Great series and I can't wait to find out what will happen to the sisters and how their magic will ruin their tormentors.

No worth the credit

The story was long and boring. The heroine was super annoying. I liked her three sisters but not her. I would said the heroine personally was the worst in all the books that I’ve ever read.

So much more than Romance

This book and the first book in this series are my first romance books. Someone on IG suggested these books to me as I am a fan of fantasy. To be honest I was also curious about romance books and how detailed the love making is. I thought romance books were all about the sex. That’s what I heard at least. Well these two books were amazing! I wasn’t expect to be hooked on the story and want more. CL Wilson did a great job in creating this world of fantasy and magic mixed with intense love making. Really though, I wanted to get through the love scenes to find out what would happen next. I can’t wait for the next book!

Wonderful, stimulating, engrossing listen.

CL Wilson does it again. I love this book and I cannot wait for the next one. Heather Wilde is a phenomenal voice with just the perfect touch to bring these colorful characters to life.

Good, but not as good as the first

I enjoyed listening to this, and it built an intriguing world. This second book dragged a little at times, whereas the first book in the series took you with it every step of the way. The ending makes you want the next book but seem no signs of it being released on Audible. Really hope it’s been written and will be available soon.

Amazing

C. L. Wilson is a genius story teller. You can’t help falling in love with her characters and it’s impossible to put her book down as you just want to know what happens next. I hope her next book comes out soon as I am dying to learn what happens to Spring and Autumn
