A Princess of Wind and Wave by Melanie Cellier ~Audiobook Review~

A Princess of Wind and Wave by Melanie Cellier is the sixth book in the Beyond the Four Kingdoms and a retelling of the Little Mermaid. This series is wrapped up with Isla, a mermaid princess. Her people and island were sent to the bottom of the ocean for protection long ago. Now they are subjected to quakes and Isla just knows it means danger. However, no one believes her. Her only option is to seek help above the surface to see if evil still lurks there. She can’t believe that the darkness is there because she saw goodness in a boy she saved in a storm. When she goes to the surface, she meets the boy from all those years ago. But he is obsessed with the girl who saved him, but he doesn’t know that she is that girl. Can she save her people and her heart from heartbreak?

Those who love The Little Mermaid will adore this charming retelling with a twist. Although this is one of those books where the supporting characters are better than the main characters. While Isla is strong and courageous…she is also naive and can be a bit childish. Some of the issues that occur in this book are because she lashed out because her feelings are hurt. However, the pace is nonstop and the resolve is unpredictable!

But I can’t forget to mention, Esther Wane, the narrator who has also done a fabulous job with the series. She captured every personality of every princess and heroine!

In all, this is a lovely conclusion to the series! All the stories could be read as standalone but are all connected beautifully. The ending is so so special, but it is difficult to let go of all the characters! This is a spinoff series and I am currently reading the Four Kingdoms series, so hopefully, that will help with the book hangover I am having now. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars but the whole series 5 out of 5 stars!
