Book Review! The Hunted by Bethany-Kris

The Hunted (9ine Realms) by Bethany-Kris 
Genre: Adult Fiction (Paranormal Romance/Fractured Fairy Tale)
Date Published: January 6 2020
Publisher: Self

Let the hunt begin …

After witnessing the murder of his mother by a mermaid, Prince Eryx Bloodhurst of Atlas makes a deal to sedate his need for vengeance: they’ll catch the mermaid who did the deed, but he’ll pay for it with his crown.

Arelle, third princess of the Blu Sea, has never known the true cruelty of the forbidden lands firsthand, but she will soon. The halfling prince with murder in his eyes and the sea’s songs in his blood will make sure of that.

He should kill her.
Perhaps, keeping her might be worse.

Two kingdoms are falling. One king is losing it all and another threatens to ruin everything. The rules of the land and sea are changing. Secrets of the past are spilling.

And all because of a prince and his little mermaid—whether they live or die—nothing in the realm will ever be the same.


In The Hunted, Bethany-Kris opens a new world—the 9INE REALMS—for readers with a dark fairy tale retelling, and pulls inspiration from the cult classic favorite and the Hans Christian Andersen original to redefine what it means to be The Little Mermaid. 

The Hunted is the first book in the 9ine Realms series by Bethany-Kris. The Hunted was a dark, twisted version of The Little Mermaid that I couldn't put down. I seriously read it in almost one sitting. It would have been one sitting if life things didn't make me have to move from my cozy spot under the blankets. But, holy cow! I mean, I don't know where to begin with this one. The mermaids are hunted, but no one is safe. Their lives were surrounded by violence and greed.. lies and secrets. We got multiple point of views which really brought this story to life, as you saw each character for who they were: good, bad, and conflicted. This world and its characters were beautifully written. I could see each scene perfectly in my head as I read, and the more I read, the more completely I was lured into their world. I need more of this series. It's far from over.

The ARC of The Hunted by Bethany-Kris was kindly provided to me by IndieSage PR for review. The opinions are my own.

Bethany-Kris is a Canadian author, lover of much, and mother to four young sons, one cat, and two dogs. A small town in Eastern Canada where she was born and raised is where she has always called home. With her boys under her feet, snuggling cat, barking dogs, and a hubby calling over his shoulder, she is nearly always writing something … when she can find the time.
