Soul of the Deep Blog Tour + Review
Steeped in West African mythology and lore, Bowen continues her mermaid story, delving deeper into the rich and lush world she created in Skin of the Sea. Following the main character Simi into the depths of the ocean, chained to a god who wishes to be free from his cursed domain. But over time Simi comes to realize not all is what it seems.
Even though the pacing was a bit choppy, with certain chapters losing ground, Bowen still captivates her readers with epic battles, an aching romance, and a main character who stands on the precipice of losing everything.
Soul of the Deep is a grand story of vengeful gods, waring kingdoms, found family, and the indelible threads between soulmates.
Happy Reading ~ Cece
RATING: – Satisfyingly Inked

Soul of the Deep Blog Tour
The highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller Skin of the Sea, in which the world must pay the price for one mermaid’s choice, and a dark force reverberates across realms. Perfect for fans of Children of Blood and Bone and those eagerly anticipating the live-action film adaptation of The Little Mermaid.
Synopsis of Soul of the Deep:
Soul of the Deep (Skin of the Sea #2) by Natasha Bowen
One life. One choice. One sacrifice
To save those closest to her, Simi traded away everything: her freedom, her family, and the boy she loves. Now she is sworn to serve a new god, watching over the Land of the Dead at the bottom of the ocean.
But when signs of demons begin to appear, it’s clear there are deeper consequences of Simi’s trade. These demons spell the world’s ruin . . . and because of Simi, they now have a way into the human realm.
With the fate of the world at stake, Simi must break her promise and team up with a scheming trickster of a god. And if they succeed, perhaps Simi can also unbreak her heart along the way, and find herself again.
