But there's one thing Dante never planned on the way Alexis steals his hea I am not sure what I can say about this book that I haven’t already said about most of Joey W Hill’s work She is one of my favorite authors and each book is uniue and precious Each work is a look into the human soul This book is certainly no different Ms Hill has written a number of books about forgiveness and redemption of light over coming darkness of good triumphing over evil This book is all of that and In the beginning of the story Dante isn’t that likable He is a product of the environment that he has lived in for 60 years The world that his mother was dragged into and raped thereby brings a child into an existence that no one should have to endure However he finds Alexis he begins to change Her light and empathy show him that there are positive emotions and a place that he doesn’t have to be on guard twenty four hours a day I loved Jonah and Anna’s story and their daughter’s is just as emotional and fulfilling as the original It made me cry for several chapters I wanted to scream at the characters and tell them that they were being idiots I want to wrap Alexis is warm and compassion for what she was so determined to do when no one else believe in what she saw in Dante It is too bad that people don’t read these stories and this author She has a marvelous talent and deserve all the praise and admiration that her fans give her

Doc ´ A Mermaid's Ransom ´ Joey W. Hill

In her dream is the loneliest man Alexis has ever met and she's strangely drawn to him Until the night her dream comes trueBorn of a vampire and a Dark One Dante only knows brutality And although he's A MERMAID'S RANSOM is not an easy read by any means but it is perhaps the lightest of the three series installments in Joey W Hill's Daughters of Arianne Series I don't mean that it's light in tone because that's certainly not the case instead the lightness I'm describing can be contributed entirely to the heroine Alexis She is perhaps the most human of all the series characters and her sarcastic wit isn't acerbic but funny and comforting and therefore she becomes a much needed breath of relief Like a comical relief moment in a dark drama Alexis provides a tension release moment where the reader can take a breath and process the dark and gruesome undertone of the novel In addition her tangible humanity makes her very easy to relate to and her all encompassing love reaches out to the reader and provides comfort for the rocky journey ahead with these two amazing but radically different characters In short Alexis provides a very necessary balance of light to what could have otherwise been a dark and horrifying readA rare being known as a mer angel Alexis inherited the angel and mermaid traits of her parents Jonah and Anna the hero and heroine of series installment one A MERMAID'S KISS You can see a beautiful reflection of Alexis's uniue form on the novel's cover In addition like all the Daughters of Arianne that have come before her Alexis has the ability to shift from her mer angel form to human And while her beauty is an inevitable draw its Alexis's angelic aura and her undeniable essence of goodness that both draws and repels people making for a lonely existence Lastly she's been gifted and cursed with a strong empathic ability that reuires learned and fortified filters to keep her from being completely bombarded by the emotions of others If left unchecked or in moments of great stress Alexis can be rendered nearly catatonic by the emotional pressure However this gift proves invaluable when it comes to the hero who would have otherwise never been given chanceFor sixty some odd years Dante has been trapped in the gruesome landscape of the Dark One world Known as a Dark Spawn Dante's vampire mother was captured tormented and raped repeatedly by Dark Ones She conceived birthed and guided Dante as best she could all the while being chained and abused until her mind crippled from the abuse gave out and she imparted the last of her soul's memory to Dante Living his life in fear and as a scavenger Dante was a repeated mark to torment by the Dark Ones Beaten and sodomized within an inch of his life on a regular basis Dante learned that in order to survive one had to do it by any means necessary The Dark One world revolves around death and destruction where the weak is preyed upon and the strong become powerful through fear and violence This was the environment that Dante was born in matured in and eventually through a will of iron ruledAfter the epic Mountain Battle Mina Dark Spawn and heroine of A WITCH'S BEAUTY destroyed the rifts that allowed the passage of Dark Ones to Earth and thus eternally closing the window that Dante had to the world he should have been born into For twenty years he's maimed killed and learned the magical skills to dominate and rule the Dark One world Breathing solely to find a way to escape Dante infiltrates Alexis's dreams and binds her to him with with his vampire nature Pulling her through a blood soaked dream portal Dante captures Alexis with the plan to ransom her for his release from the Dark One world However he didn't plan on the impact the little mer angel would have on a heart he never knew he possessedDante is a highly unconventional hero Hell it can even be argued that he isn't a hero at all He's a deep dark festering pit of rage and violence A being of no morals and no idea of right verses wrong There is only survival and it's key for the reader to be reminded time and again of the environment that he was born into for it has molded his soul almost exclusively with darkness Alexis the only being that can truly sense the state of Dante's emotions is his only champion Deep within him she glimpses a flame of light that has surprisingly been nourished and protected with little to no guidance Alexis sees his potential and she also feels very strongly a deep seeded bond that resonates within her own soul as well as Dante's This light is the only thing that saves Dante not only from Alexis's powerful family but from reader rejection as well Dante is not a good person and he proves this time and again but with the help of Alexis the reader finds the desire to believe along with her that Dante can be good That he has all the tools to better himself he just needs a guideIn all honesty Dante will not be for everyone His sociopathic tendencies and deadly uick temper could put a damper on reader enjoyment In my opinion Hill did an excellent job reminding the reader on a consistent basis that Dante's life has been unconventional to say the least The reader can't necessarily expect him to know and understand morals and values that we take for granted while living in our modern and civilized society It's also very evident that Dante's road to his soul's salvation is no where near complete by the end of the novel While he knows that Alexis loves him he can't say with all honesty that he loves her He wants to love her very desperately but he hasn't yet come to fully understand the concept He's never known love so how can he be able recognize it within his own heart?This novel would never have worked without Alexis She's a pure and loving soul and was probably a joy to write because she's so forthcoming Her heart is worn boldly on her sleeve and she's incredibly strong in both mind and spirit It's because of this that I fear that like Jonah her father I can't necessarily say that Dante deserved her but I'm happy he has her He'd certainly be lost without her and than likely dead Thankfully that was a lesson that Dante did learn He knows that Alexis deserves and I truly think he'll strive his damnedest to provide for her exactly what she needsI'll admit that I grappled endlessly with my rating of this novel Dante's evolution from a violent murderer and kidnapper to a being of workable restraint was amazing but his journey is no where near complete The crimes that he has been called to pay for are horrendously steep and it's very possible that he'll never atone for the wrongs he's committed Knowing all this I couldn't shake the feeling that the Happily Ever After was bittersweet and than a little heartbreaking So much growth is still needed that I feel the ending was of a beginning for Dante and Alexis with an outcome that may never be attained However after reading the end again I feel that there really can be no other way That to change anything would have been a great disservice to all the progress made thus far and I've therefore come to respect and ultimately appreciate Hill's end decisionA MERMAID'S RANSOM is a controversial read in ways then one Some will hate it and others will love it with few in between With regards to my own personal experience I happened to love it

Joey W. Hill ´ A Mermaid's Ransom Reader

A Mermaid's RansomA story of two lovers who could not be differentDaughter to an angel and a mermaid Alexis has grown up in peaceful waters So when her nightmares begin the mer angel has little idea what to make of them There is a scene in this book that makes it a 5 star for me Dante is what made this book great I wanted to see his soul the bad sides of him and all the hurt I wished there was of it in the book Alexis is great I love when a female character does something I would do like hang on tight and not let Dante goDante a vampire that never really filled out his dominant nature still manages to get Alexis to submit and third marks her She then collars him which was shocking to me but I loved they way he only submitted to her when he really wanted to scorch the world I felt so bad for him even though he did some bad things to survive Joey W Hill brings that suject to the forefront in this bookcan you love someone that does a lot of bad things in hisher life? Joey W Hill really has a way to communicate through her characters good vs evil and gets to the soul of the issue in a smart way Dante trying to exist in her world was nice to read The facepainting was sweet and touching Alexis really was heartbreaking when she knew she would be hurt but continued to defend him in all ways her belief in him was something I appreciated in her Dante is so sexy when feeding her and I love his vampire nature Alyssa and Jacob make an appearance which was greatThere are some parts in this book that weren't as serious or just corny but I was able to overlook them because the main story was strong Just a note on Jonah he was great as the father figure it suits him well and makes him that much sexier I really enjoyed this series and we have so much still to learn about Dante I wish it would continue
