Summary

Atlantes, a lost city of intrigue to most, is Brutus' home, his curse, his prison. Doomed to an immortal life deep in the ocean, their only chance at salvation is to rescue damsels in distress from the surface world and bring them into the abyss. While mythology may label him and his kind monsters, this warrior is simply a man with needs. And he's found the perfect woman to see to them.

good

This was a bit shorter than the others and seemed to be a decade later than the previous books. Found that there were a few missed links that would have been nice to explain things but i believe its setting up a great climax to the series.. i hope anyway....

An enjoyable listen

The fourth book in the series finds Brutus rescuing another damsel from the seas. An enjoyable book that continues the plot from the first one.

Book 4

This book follows Brutus who saves Laurel and as he tries to be honest about where she is he proceeds in frightening her. When there’s an attack on the dome Laurel knows she has to transform and go to help Brutus . The story carries through from book 1 where the psychotic queen and her crazy followers are trying to overthrow the dome and the king and I can’t wait until someone ends the queen and her crazies .

Life under the Sea

Interesting and entertaining short story. Mermen trying to resurrect their kind with women from land. I like strong women and the heroine proved that she was loving and protective.

adventure, a bit of drama and a few laughs

I’m completely enticed with this series. Definitely a must get. Hot and romantic with a bit of action and adventure. Narrator does a great job too. I promise you won’t get bored.
Wanting an adventure, so you hire a boat. Right? Wrong.
When you capsize, the drunken captain and his crew will save you, right? Wrong.
If you are looking for a book, with adventure, a bit of drama and a few laughs this series is for you.
Can't wait to read the next in this series.

Lords of the Abyss

This is the 4th book in Michelle M Pillow’s Lords of the Abyss series. I haven’t read any of the other books in the series and didn’t feel disadvantaged by that. Brutus, the strong shy alpha falls for Laurel who he rescues from the sea! Another first for me, this one with Mermen! Only criticism is that I wasn’t too keen on the way the narrator did Brutus’s voice. However, this hasn’t put me off and I will be reading more.

How is this so good

This book has such a fantastic romance story going through it, and a really strong storyline to back up the rest of the book. I can’t wait to see where this is going as it just keeps getting better each time.

Highly entertaining!

Loved it. Normally, Brutus is a teasing twin. Now, he is this socially awkward man-mountain, who struggles to explain the new reality to his ward. His awkwardness is our entertainment. Totally worth the whispersync.

Surrender to the Sea!

I enjoyed every bit of this fourth story in the "Lords of the Abyss" series. It is a stand alone read with some connected characters. This is a good story and I like the different take on Mer folk and Atlantis. I listened to the audiobook of this story and I thought the narrator did a good job reading. The story is fast paced and fun. This one is about Brutus and Laurel. He rescues her after the ship she was on sinks. He is such an alpha hunter who is like a grizzly bear but a big and cuddly one. He cracks me up because he is so clueless. However, he only has eyes for Laurel. The chemistry between the characters is off the charts and these two set the pages on flames. I love how the relationship grows and develops between them. This is a very interesting and intriguing story with drama, suspense, action and very hot and steamy scenes.

Book 4 - Lords of the Abyss

Book 4 in Pillow's series Lords of the Abyss. A quick, fast paced paranormal romance read / listen. Smooth flowing storyline with insta chemistry. Main characters are Brutus and Laurel. Brutus is a Mer living in an underwater world who rescues Laurel by bringing her to his world. I loved Brutus and the banter with Laurel had me laughing out loud - so innocent, cute and sweet. Can't help but love him and his twin brother added humor and mischief too. Danger strikes and it's Brutus' job to help but when trouble arises it will be up to Laurel and her new found bond that may just have to save the day!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Entertaining

Brutus found Laurel after the boat she was on wrecked. I liked this book. I felt bad for Laurel when she found out about her new reality. Once her and Brutus came together it was a joyous thing. This book was prefect to listen to while working out or doing housework. There were some sexual parts but I was able to tune those out, I think there was maybe one and it wasn't too bad. As you all know I recommend Michelle's books and this one is no exception.

Laurel becomes a hero

This is the 4th audiobook in series and is just as great as the rest. It's Brutus & Laurel's story. Brutus starts the day being depressed about his loneliness & the mer punishment. Who knew it would end in his eventual mating to Laurel. He gets so tongue tied when he speaks to her and clearly knows NOTHING about women that it's so comical. Laurel's backstory is very sad but Brutus makes her feel safe and he sparks something in her. However, she is adamant about not becoming a mermaid. When they do the inevitable, wink wink, her feelings for Brutus solidify. So much so that when "earthquakes" hits & King Lucian sends him out to check on it, Laurel goes out of her mind. Then, 4 days later, after nobody's heard from him, she does the one thing she said she wouldn't do. And just like that she becomes the hero of the audiobook. Plus afterwards, she has the best line......."Um, I really love the affliction." I laughed so hard I cried.

This is another great story by Michelle M Pillow with great narration by Rebecca Cook.

Entertaining!

This is the fourth book in the Lords of the Abyss Series. Brutus and Laurel's story is fast-paced, hilarious, steamy, and entertaining. Brutus is such a hilarious character! Rebecca Cook did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listening to Marking Waves, the next book in the Series.

Fun & Steamy Merman Adventure!!

Surrender to the Sea is the 4th novel in this fun world full of Mer people!
This series is a fun, light read and very funny at times and just a bit steamy. I really enjoyed Laurel and Brutus' story and can't wait for more in this world.
Audio narration is very well done and enjoyable to listen to also!

Girl power

This book has a completely different take on the damsel in distress! While the other female characters have not been pushovers this book is filled with much more girl power then the others. Quick paced and fun to read!

Another Great Addition to the Series

Once again Michelle M. Pillow has provided us with well written, endearing characters and an engaging story line. Rebecca Cook brought this story to life and made this book not only a joy to read but to listen to as well.

I received a copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.
