Summary

Book two in the best-selling Alexis Silver, Mermaid Detective series!

Alexis Silver has always defied convention: In the 1920s, she tried to attend college. She also prefers to live on land, and she doesn’t really care for the taste of human flesh.

Oh, by the way, she’s also a mermaid.

A century of existence comes with a certain amount of boredom, but work as a private investigator in the Pacific Northwest offers a pleasant combination of access to the sea, intrigue, and helping others.

When a well-to-do woman hires her to find her missing adventurer brother, Alexis feels like she’s landed straight in the middle of the sort of action movie they just don’t make anymore. The man’s trail leads all over the globe, but she suspects he’s not dead - yet.

An international mining conglomerate evidently wants whatever the missing explorer has found, and they’re more than willing to kill anyone who gets in their way.

Even mermaids.

Fantastic


Loved it!
Such a good book and really enjoyed the humour in it as well!
I fell in love with Alexis in the first book And my love for her has only grown in the second book! the fact that she is strong and not perfect makes her even more likeable.
The narrators voice is lovely and clear super easy to listen to, it also fitted the main character very well.

I still recommend it as it was really good book!

Great story

I find this series a good easy listen too which is good. The narration was good and I liked her voice. I enjoyed the adventure in this book and the continual relationship building between characters. Its always good to have room for growth if there is more than 1 book.

So much fun!

I am loving this series so much! The characters and the story are really enjoyable to listen to. Alex is one amazing mermaid and I love the way mermaids are portrayed in this story. Alex had a few jobs in this story and one of them was really easy for her but the other proved to be much more challenging. I really loved the explorer and Alex’s use of her powers. I’m excited to see what’s next for Alex especially with how this one ends. I definitely want to know how that encounter will play out and what Alex is going to need to do. As always I love the interactions between Alex and her dark master. The narrator does a fantastic job bringing these characters to life along with the action going on in the stories.

another great read

The characters are back for another mystery. aliens exist? that's what Alexis' new missing person thinks. Tasked with finding the brother of a worried sibling Alexis finds herself once again in deep waters. The story continues to weave thru the lost world whole dodging corporate hostility that's bent on getting their way -- mermaid be damned.
I found the second book to be better than the first. it's more of a mystery feel and it def caught my attention more. Love the narrator. Kelly has this voice that just sounds ethereal and actually makes you believe she could be a mermaid behind the mic. I've listened to loads of narrators and she is def a perfect fit for this series. Can't wait for the third one!

Cuter and Cuter!!

This is book 2 and I adored it. Between lying ex-spouses and missing adventurous Brits, we get another wild ride with Alex. I just couldn't turn off the story. Rain and Cox have another hit, with Kelley Huston giving their story a voice. All 3 did an amazing job and entertained me for many hours. My only gripe is the ending. Now I absolutely need the next book. Good job everyone on pulling me farther and farther in to this world you created.
Would I listen to this book again? yes
Would I recommend this book to others? absolutely. This is a great series for all ages.

Mermaid to the rescue!

This is a well-written, fun and easy to read book. Alexis Silver became a mermaid in the 1920's when she "died" after a shipwreck. Now, she is a private investigator and uses her talents/powers to help others.

She is hired by a rich woman to find her adventurer brother. Alexis can't seem to catch a break and begins to wish that she hadn't taken the case. Then, she finds out that Ethan has purchased an underwater habitat so that he can investigate a mysterious discovery. That's where the fun really begins!

With shades of Indiana Jones, Alexis and Ethan go through a gauntlet of booby traps (pardon the pun) and she begins to think that Ethan might be on to something in his belief of aliens. The dialogue is witty, the action is great and Alexis is one of my favorite fantasy characters. I hope that the authors continue this series for a long time because they are just what I need when I'm looking for a lighthearted urban fantasy mixed with mystery.

The narrator is absolutely perfect for the book and her different voices/accents added a lot to my listening enjoyment. I will definitely add Kelley Huston's name to my list of favorite narrators! I was given the chance to listen to this book by the author/narrator/publisher and chose to review it.

Alexis is back :)

It's a fantasy / paranormal / cozy mystery - a mix I really like - with the main character who is intelligent, funny, witty and doen't treat herself too seriosuly...:) She works as a PI though she doesn't really need to - which means she is in it not for the money but for the job itself:) And she does everything to solve her cases, putting her heart to it...

The second book in the series is even better than the first, though it's different in that the case Alexis has to deal with seems less urgent and not so emotional as the first one we followed her in. But it's equally entertaining, with some great twists to the plot... It's also faster in terms of the pace, and more balanced in tone.

Narration by Ms Huston is great, with the spot on pace of her reading and voices really matching perfectly the individual characters.

So, if you haven't met Alexis Silver yet, don't wait, grab book one and book two and just listen - you won't regret it:)

10 Star Narrator!

This is turning out to be one of my most favorite series ever, and I read A LOT! I can't put my finger on exactly why I love this series so much, but with each of the two books I've listened to, I just find myself sad that it ended. I love all of the characters. They're just so likeable. I want to be more like Alexis. She's just awesome. And the narrator! She's amazing!! There are lots of narrators that I like and even more that I don't like, but Kelley Huston just blows me away. I've never heard such spot on narrating. I genuinely feel like the character herself is telling me a story and it's not just being narrated to me. She really is that good. If you haven't listened to this series yet, then grab book one and get started. You won't be sorry!!!

Fantastic 2-in-1 mystery with adventure and comedy

I always feel a touch nervous going into book 2 of a series when I really enjoyed the first book. Will the second book meet my expectations? In the case of Deep Silver, I was not disappointed. In fact, I loved it! Deep Silver was packed with fun adventures and quirky characters, keeping in tune with the overall vibe of the series vibe. For a mermaid with superhuman powers, Alex is incredibly relatable. The relationship she forms with one character in particular was sheer perfection. Also, the narrator was exceptional. I can't imagine anyone else narrating this series. 5 Stars all the way across on this one.

* I was given a review copy for this audibook in exchange for an honest review. I honestly LOVED this one.

Loved it!

What a refreshing read! I have enjoyed following Alexis, who is a Private Investigator who isn’t afraid of using her special talents. Like the previous installment, this one dived a bit into her world and it was refreshing. I absolutely love the mystery side of investigating and I found this one to have some Indiana Jones action as well. I’m very intrigued as to what happens next and I’m looking forward to listening to the next installment.

The narrator Kelley Huston did a wonderful job portraying Alexis and the secondary characters. Her voice is pleasant and easy to follow along. The tones and inflections are spot on! She certainly brought the story telling to another level. Highly recommend!
