SUBMERGED: Read if you can handle the truth

SUBMERGED by Katie Hayoz

Melusine Doré is back and she’s badder than ever. Slaying monsters is sweeter this time around because Levi is by her side with a little less bickering and wrangling. While Mel (yeah we’re tight like that) has had her “happily ever after” in book 1 (Immersed), it seems to be short-lived when doubts cripple their relationship. The fear of the curse returning hangs heavily over Mel’s head and it’s causing a rift. Add a seductive vixen into the mix and you get a volatile love triangle of some sort.

But enough about the shaky relationship. 

Submerged is much more than that. 

This is Mel’s unravelling. There’s this part of her that’s come undone because there’s this nagging fear that seems to be magnified the closer she gets to the truth about herself.

I am completely in awe of how the character is presented – a strong female on the outside, but on the verge of falling apart on the inside.

“What if everything you knew about yourself was a lie?” says the blurb.

And my goodness, the story delivers!  ★★★ 5/5
