Two dolphin princes, a gang of murderous shark-shifters, and one little librarian with an over developed sense of curiosity. Put all in a blender, mix well, and you’ve got the first book in this dolphin-shifter serial.
Lucan and Dario are princes from warring dolphin pods. They have been exiled and sent to land to find a descendant of Neptune. The Descendant will be able to finally bring an end to the dolphins’ war. Mona has been drawn to the water all her life and spends a great deal of her time lying on the beach watching all the surfers. It’s no surprise that she spots Lucan and Dario the minute they step on the beach. They just have an aura about them. What is surprising is when, in the midst of a shark attack, she notices them shift into dolphins and drive the shark away. What’s a girl to do? She either has to follow them to see if they really did turn into dolphins or she will have to wonder the rest of her life. Of course, she follows them.
I got a little excited when I read the title of this series. Dominate dolphin shifters?! Sign me up. And I was not disappointed. Lucan and Dario are both swoon-worthy princes. Mona is impulsive and carefree. I feel like her character has some growing to do, but this is only the first part of a serial, so I’ll cut her some slack. I look forward to seeing where these characters go from here.
I do feel it worth noting that there are a few steamy sex scenes in this book, but no menage scenes…at least not in this installment.
I’m curious on two things though.
1. I was ridiculously excited to read about dolphin shifters, is there type of shifter that you wish someone would write about? Or a kind of shifter that you wouldn’t want to read about?
2. The new fad of serial releases is starting to grow on me a bit. How about you? Are you a serial fan or not?
