If you guys know me then you know one of my favorite genre’s of books is all about mermaids. So this book was really refreshing in the way that the author is portraying mermaids. If you love a book that is all about mystery and love this book is definitely for you. I would highly recommend this audio book over the print because there are a lot of words and names that are really hard to Pronounce. Shantel is an amazing author the way she writes is so beautiful.

This is the 1st book I’ve heard don’t Dollcie read. She is very pleasant to listen to. Her range of voices is incredible and she keeps the audience engaging because she herself could be like a siren. You want to keep listening to her her inflections in her words and her tone is very easy to understand.

The over all production of this are you book was fantastic. There were a few areas where the transition between chapters was a little breathy. Other than that the audio was fantastic.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Chantal Gadoury. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Dream Cast

By Author chantal Gadoury
  • Lena – Gemma Arterton
    • When I first saw Gemma in Tess of D’Urbervilles, she was everything I imagined my character, Lena, a merrow turned human, to be.
  • Soren Emil – Matt Smith
    • Soren holds a special place in my heart from a time before I started officially writing “Between the Sea and Stars.” I’ve always associated his character looking like Matt Smith, which is why I’d cast him as such.
  • Jace Wyatt – Aaron Taylor-Johnson
    • I’ve been inspired by Aaron Taylor-Johnson since the first time I saw him in “Anna Karenina.” When I started to look for someone who reminded me of Jim Hawkins (the real inspiration behind Jace Wyatt) I saw Aaron played a role in a movie called Albert Nobbs. At that moment, I knew I had found the right choice of a “face character” and movie cast for Jace.
  • Edwin Wyatt – Max Von Sydow
    • Edwin was a character I had planned to have in the story of “Between the Sea and Stars,” but suddenly he appeared, and became a character that I fell in love instantly. He is the sweetest of men, and so wise. When I started to look for a face that could envelope everything about Edwin, it was hard. I had been torn between Richard Harris, and Sir Ian McKellen, but when I saw Max Von Sydow, in this photo – I really felt like I had found the face of Edwin perfectly.
  • Asger – Rohit Khandelwal
    • I knew as I was writing Asger, I was trying to bring in more diverse of characters – different skin colors, tail colors, – just different from Lena and the characters that I was already planning on land. And I really loved just how different Asger became. I found the photo of Rohit as I was trying to figure out Asger, and what he’d look like – he was an inspiration right from the beginning.
  • Lord Jarl – Jeremy Irons
    • I went through a huge phase of watching “The Borgias” right before I had written “Between the Sea and Stars,” and kinda just loved Jeremy Irons as an actor. I know he could play evil – and well. And I know he’d adapt the character Lord Jarl perfectly.
