Bay of Sighs (The Guardians Trilogy #2) by Nora Roberts

Paperback, 319 pages
Published June 14th 2016 by Berkley

To celebrate the rise of their new queen, three goddesses of the moon created three stars, one of fire, one of ice, one of water. But then they fell from the sky, putting the fate of all worlds in danger. And now three women and three men join forces to pick up the pieces…

Mermaid Annika is from the sea, and it is there she must return after her quest to find the stars. New to this world, her purity and beauty are nothing less than breathtaking, along with her graceful athleticism, as her five new friends discovered when they retrieved the fire star. 

Now, through space and time, traveler Sawyer King has brought the guardians to the island of Capri, where the water star is hidden. And as he watches Annika in her element, he finds himself drawn to her joyful spirit. But Sawyer knows that if he allows her into his heart, no compass could ever guide him back to solid ground...

And in the darkness, their enemy broods. She lost one star to the guardians, but there is still time for blood to be spilled—the mermaid’s in the water and the traveler’s on the land. For she has forged a dangerous new weapon. Something deadly and unpredictable. Something human. 

My Thoughts…

I had not read a Nora Roberts book in a while before I read the first book in The Guardians Trilogy.   When I finished the first book I knew that I had to read the second book.    This is an amazing trilogy.    The story flows perfectly from one book to the next.     The characters are familiar and the quest is known.       Now I need to get ready for the third one.

In this book we pick up after they have found the first star.   They are now searching for the star of water.   The 6 main characters know that they will have to use their own personal special talents to keep each other safe and find the star.   I cannot pick a favorite character but in this book it seemed that Annika and Sawyer were front and center throughout the entire story.     I felt invested in their safety and in their relationship.  I loved how naïve and unknowing Annika is.    Her understanding of all things human is so small that everything has to be explained to her.    The use of language, the use of human items, and the love between humans is all so new to her it was like discovering the world again through new eyes.  

In true Nora Roberts fashion, I could not put the book down.   I turned page and after page, reading paragraph after paragraph.  I had to know what was going to happen.   

As with many of her series this one does need to be read in order.    The need to understand the history and the characters is necessary.
