A Thousand Salt Kisses Later (Salt Kisses – 2) by Josie Demuth
The spellbinding sequel to A Thousand Salt Kisses.
Four years ago, Crystal White fell in love with Llyr, a prince of the magical mer colony living off the coast of Starfish Island. For one summer, he enchanted her with stories of jeweled palaces and underwater gardens, but then he left, returning beneath the waves with her heart in tow.
Now, graduated and with no job in sight, Crystal is forced to go back to the island she thought she had left in the past. By the sea again, she realizes she is far from over her first love, and when an opportunity arises to contact the merfolk, Crystal can’t resist.
Once more with the mer, Crystal is forced to come to terms with the fact that Llyr has moved on, and also with her own magical secret that has endangered her life, his throne, and every mer kingdom. Working against all odds, she has to try to save the people she has come to love and—if she can—rekindle the romance of her first summer on Starfish Island.
Josie Demuth is an author based in London. First published on Wattpad, her Salt Kisses series has garnered nearly four million reads and are now serialised on Radish Fiction. The second of this series, A Thousand Salt Kisses Later is her fourth novel.
It is four years since Crystal meet and fell in love with Llyr. Since then she has gone to college, had boyfriends, and grown up. But now she is graduating from college, has no job, and finds herself back on Starfish Island. Once she returns she remembers her love of Llyr and tries to find him. But Llyr has grown and is now engaged to Princess Tara of the Timsah Kingdom. But Crystal learns she has magic and that it can possibly destroy Llry’s world.
I have to admit that I’m so glad that it is four years later and Crystal has grown up. This alone made the book better than the first. I completely understood how she felt when she learned about Tara but it’s hard to deny that Llyr still has feelings for her. It was interesting how she had magic and how it could affect this world. I was surprised with how this worked out in the end.
This is a great story and I admit that I liked it better than the first book. I really liked the mer world and how you get to explore so much more. If you like mermaid stories I recommend that you check this one out.
