Komplette Reihe



When Xanthus cashes in a long-standing favor, Kyros is faced with doing two things he thought he'd never do—protect a mermaid and live on land. Dagonians loathe mermaids and Sara, Xanthus's wife, is no exception. Also, a Dagonian standing on human legs? As if being around the vile creatures responsible for polluting his home and killing his sister wasn't horrible enough, Kyros has to deal with Sara's troublesome human friend, Gretchen.

Kyros can't help but resent Gretchen. Not only is she human and unforgettably gorgeous, but she leaves him swimming in confusion and feeling things he shouldn't be feeling—least of all for a land-walker! When Gretchen is nearly killed by an assassin's bullet, Kyros's mission changes. He's forced to become her protector. Forced is a gross exaggeration, though. The more time Kyros spends with Gretchen, the more he finds himself falling for this spunky, witty human. When it becomes apparent that something dark and evil will stop at nothing to see Gretchen dead, Kyros expends his resources to find out who that being is. Unfortunately, the answer causes more problems than it solves. When a rogue mermaid wants you dead, you’re safe from no one… not even the ones you love.

I'm married to a wonderful husband, James, and we are currently raising 6 rambunctious children. My interests are reading, writing (or course), martial arts, visual arts, creating Halloween props, and spending time with family.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing!!! 29. März 2014
Von Stephany Rodriguez - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I loved her first book and thought it couldn't get any better but wow Holly Kelly had me at the opening sentence. The second book is so phenomenal! She is an amazing author who only shows she gets better and better. Mrs Kelly has a unique imagination that will keep you intrigued and left asking for more. I love the new characters including the fact we read more about Kyros and Gretchen. the foreshadowing for the next book ..keeps your mind thinking about what she has in-store for book number 3. A book you can't put down till you finish it, had me on the edge of my sit and had me laugh a few times. LOVE IT!

4.0 von 5 Sternen An engaging, fast-past read 6. April 2014
Von TClaire82 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I fell in love with Holly Kelly's first book, RISING.The sequel was also a fun, likable story. I love how the author incorporates mythology into the stories. She introduced a new villain, Aella, who I thought made an excellent antagonist. Gretchen and Kyros's romance felt a little rushed to me, but it didn't keep me from enjoying the book. I appreciated that Ms. Kelly kept the book clean, which to me takes a good dose of bravery in today's market. I applaud her for it, and that is one of the many reasons why I will definitely purchase any future books by Holly Kelly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hooked! (pun intended!) 2. April 2014
Von Destiny Shackleford - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Where do I start? I started this series expecting a grown up take on the Little Mermaid, but boy, was I wrong! Descending is dark, fast paced, and spiced with just the right amount of swoonworthy moments to keep me hooked! Gretchen is by far my favorite character, and not your average heroine, but I won't spoil it! If you're looking for book that changes your views on mermaids and humans forever, this series is it! Props to Holly Kelly for a sequel that topped the first! Can't wait for book three!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fast-paced Mermaid Tale! 30. Mai 2014
Von Lillian @ Mom with a Reading Problem - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
"Descending" by Holly Kelly is book two of the Rising Series and picks up not too long after the end of book one. Xanthus has been given permission to continue his work on land by Triton, but because Sara is his daughter he requires that Xanthus have bodyguards for her. So he asks his best friend Kyros and a few others to take on the task. Kyros was raised a true Dagonian, he loathes mermaids and humans killed his sister so he hates them too. Now his best friend has asked him to do two things he finds revolting: protect a mermaid and walk on land with the humans. Only because he fears Xanthus is under a mermaid spell does he accept, but when Gretchen, Sara's best friend, arrives and is nearly killed, he finds that maybe humans aren't so bad after all.

So I loved this installment even more than book one! This book is the story of Kyros and Gretchen. Kyros has no love lost when it comes to humans, they brutally killed his twin sister. And mermaids! He's a Dagonian, all mermaids should be dead. But Xanthus is his best friend and he owes him a favor, so when he is asked to help protect Sara on dry land, he accepts, but only so he can break the spell the mermaid has over his friend (or at least that's how he thinks). Gretchen is Sara's spunky best friend that we met in book one, but she's not so spunky anymore. She's lost her intern job with an attorney after telling a client to basically kill himself, and then he does. Distraught she goes to Sara for cheering up. But Sara doesn't know Gretchen's secret. She was adopted and well her true mother is a mystery she will tell no one about. When Sara takes a bullet for Gretchen (and is miraculously walking instead of in a wheelchair), she begins questioning why she is harboring this secret.

I loved both main characters and of course the alternating POV was awesome! Gretchen is spunky, a fighter, who doesn't take no for an answer. Kyros is a warrior, an old-fashioned male who finds it very confusing when he is attracted to this loud mouthed female human. It makes for an ironically funny read.

The plot revolves around Gretchen and her past, but also why someone is trying to kill her. I had figured out the big plot twist early on, despite that I still found it an excellent read. The suspense was page-turning (I read the book in one sitting!), and the romance was sweet. If you enjoy a good fantasy with lots of suspense/action and a little romance, I highly recommend you check out this series. A little note, even if you have not read book one, this book can easily be picked up and read as a standalone novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Twist 9. Juli 2015
Von J. Brown - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Like the first book in this series, Descending is another romance, but it doesn't feel like a copy at all. It took a whole new approach. The story is told from Sara's and Xanthus's best friend's view points, and Kyros and Gretchen stand on their own as unique characters. The reveal of Gretchen's past was done well. I liked the included mythology that creates the background for the character's lives and the story's plot. I also enjoyed the story twists and how each character's part ended up being wove together. It sets things up well for the third book, which I'm looking forward to reading.
