Sunken Empire (Saga of Evanescent Realms Book 1) by [Brandy Slaven]

When Rubi finds herself out on a singles cruise headed for the Bahamas, she can’t help but to wonder how her life has gone so horribly wrong. Many speed dates later and one drunken night on the deck sends Rubi head over heels, literally. She finds herself in the cold water of the Atlantic watching the boat she was cursing not long ago, sail off into the distance. Stranded in the middle of the ocean, she knows it’s only a matter of when she dies, not if. When three gorgeous identical strangers show up out of nowhere, Rubi is certain she is drunk and hallucinating. As they whisper dark promises in her ear and drag her into the dark abyss, she says goodbye to her pathetic life. Little does Rubi know, she is about to be thrust into a world full of magic, centuries old prophecies, sea monsters, and mermaids.


I received this book from the author for an honest review.

This was my first mermaid story and Brandy has made me a mermaid fan. Seriously those mermen are so yummy.

Rubi is on a cruise where she gets wasted and finds herself floating in the ocean watching the boat sail away. She has it set in her mind she is a goner but not sure if it will be from drowning or eaten by sharks. Can you imagine her surprise when she wakes up with not one but three sexy men?

Rubi’s Z’s have such different personalities but all have the same end goal to mate with their Rubi and hopefully break the curse. Rubie’s men are wonderful with her the way they take time to mate with her. Rubi has so much to wrap her mind around. She has such a short time to comprehend she is a mermaid who has more than one mate and will someday be their queen.

Brandy did a great job of pulling me into this new world. I loved all the twists in this book from finding out who Rubi’s family is and learning about her three Z’s family. I have to say there were others in this book that I cannot wait to learn more about.

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her typing away at her laptop, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at one of the state parks. Bringing her characters to life is one of her greatest accomplishments.
