- Psalms of Love.
- A Perfect Haze: The Illustrated History of the Monterey International Pop Festival!
I loved it! And of course, I went straight on to read book two, Wolfhardt and loved it even more. Who would have thought mermaids and werewolves could work? I instantly liked Madly and connected with her as a character quite easily.

I found her fun, strong and just an all-round awesome character to read about. It was very easy to slip into her head and go through her motions and understand why she loved the people she did in her life. Everyone around her is supportive and trust worthy, but not just because she is a princess but because she has genuine friends that love and care her so it was nice to see she had that support system even when her parents are held captivate.
The story itself was intense, action packed and dangerous.

Madly & the Jackal
Can she protect her friend, and her heart? At only about pages, this was a short book. So I'll do this review as a list. What I liked: --The mix of fairy tale creatures and mermaid myth. The basis for the world is very original and mixes together in a cool way. She is a princess, and she acts like one.
Madly isn't afraid to speak her mind and give orders when they need to be given. This book had a great balance of aspects I loved. What I didn't like: --World building. I didn't get a great picture in my mind of Slumber or Atlas. The way the relationship went back and forth was maddening LOL, pun. It's also something I've seen in a lot of books.
Even the reader knows! I kind of felt like the ending went too fast. To be honest I didn't completely understand what went on and the events seemed to contradict earlier parts of the story. This book was kind of back and forth for me, but I will read the next one in the series.

Love the cover art. Wasn't crazy about the main character's name being Madly, but grew into it. At least I could pronounce it, as is not the case with a few books I have read lately! Anyway, I just thought it was so original and loved the mix of mermaids, royalty and classic fairy tales. There is a love triangle that isn't really a love triangle and it never really makes you uncomfortable like so Okay, I admit, I wasn't sure how I would like a book about Mermaids, but it was friggin' fantastic! There is a love triangle that isn't really a love triangle and it never really makes you uncomfortable like so many other books.
Jackson is one leading man I would like to get my hands all over I don't think there was a character in the book that I didn't like. I am so looking forward to the next book Will be interesting to see how Aidan's new "role" plays into the new book Obviously totally rooting for Jackson and Madly and hope there isn't too much turmoil with their relationship in the next book, but what would a good book be without some good 'ol fashioned turmoil?
It was just too weird of a thing for it to not be involved Snow White or something?? Aug 05, Jackie -Sated Faery rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , mermaids. Honestly, when I first saw this I wasn't too sure if mermaids sounded very exciting or not. But this is such a great author that she has had me daydreaming about a fish-man! Madly is your basic teenager besides the whole mermaid princess thing until all hell breaks loose underwater and she is forced into an adult position immediately.
She is torn between thinking with her head so she can save her people follow through with the future her parents have planned for her and thinking with her heart so she can be with her forbidden love and be happy. This story is filled with action and suspense to keep you on your toes and constant frustration surrounding Jackson, the sexy sentinel that watches over Madly. This is one of those books that you won't be able to put down until you finish it! I cannot wait for more!

She cliffhanged me! Leighton shoved a cliffhanger right in my face at the end of this book and based on her website I see no book three in site!!!!!!! This book did it for me. OH yes! It wasn't cheesy. The whole thing from beginning to end was incredible. I was really sucked into this magical world of lore and fairy tale!
Brilliant, and so amazing! I'm so glad I pretty much spent one day buying up all that I could of M. Leighton when I discovered her facebook page because now I can dive into one of her other series! Cheers, M. Beautifully done! Jul 14, Carrie rated it it was amazing Shelves: kindle. Another captivating read by M.

Madly is a girl torn between duty and love. You struggle with her as she knows that she is unable to be a royal princess and be with Jackson. The book has a lot of interesting twists and turns and it is just a really good, fun read. Aug 21, Misty rated it it was amazing.
LOVED this book! Very original concept! The characters came alive from the very beginning-- the author really knows how to create a world that the reader can get lost in. Great story and fantastic writing. Jul 30, Kelsey van Dillen rated it liked it Shelves: release. Just a little bit more than 3 stars. Like 3. It had some fairytale elements in it, like little red riding hood and the big bad wolf. I just don't know what wolfhardt has to do with their main goal, which is saving Atlas.
