Publisher's Summary

Gabriel Braven sees monsters, but he does not believe it.
As Gabriel struggles to cope with the three days he has left on land, a new complication arises. His grandmother's lover, the enigmatic archaeology professor Johnson Tims seems to know more than he should about Gabriel's transformation into a merman.
Gabriel's lifeline is his own lover, Casillus Nerion, prince of the ocean-dwelling, immortal Mer. Life on land is becoming more and more difficult, but their loving mental connection grows with Gabriel's trust in what he is becoming. Gabriel is even eager to get in the water if it is to be in Casillus' strong arms.
However, Johnson is even more eager to lead Gabriel to the ancient temple his team has discovered that may have some tragic connection with the Mer. Not even Casillus can sustain him when Gabriel is plunged into visions of the terrible past between the Mer and the humans… but what Gabriel discovers about himself is even more shocking.

Book 1: Great story about a boy who hates water because of a tragic accident that kill his parents... but somehow he becomes different from that experience.

Book 2: Great continuation.... now we are finding out what is happening to Gabriel... but the professor.... dude... what is up with him?

Book 3: AWESOME!!! Finally we get some back information about Gabriel, the Mers and the settlement... But that Cliffhanger ending... C'mom.... when is Gabriel going down in the sea and meet his family down there? Seriously...

- Candateshia Pafford "I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)"

Short, Sexy and Intriguing.

What made the experience of listening to Caller the most enjoyable?

The connection that Gabriel and Casillus share, it grows stronger with each passing day.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gabriel. I love how he continues to grow as he becomes more open minded to his true nature.

Which scene was your favorite?

I like all the scenes when Gabriel and Casillus are connected through their minds. It's very interesting how they've basically courted through a mental connection.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Just very intriguing, how everything is coming together and secrets are being revealed.

Any additional comments?

Gabriel Braven's life on land is becoming increasingly difficult. He has already begun the transition to Mer, so the forced separation from the water is taking its toil on his body. His mind however, is becoming clearer the closer he and his Merman mate, prince Casillus become. It's the dreams Gabriel has that frighten him the most. He can't feel or hear Casillus through their ever growing connection when he is basically trapped in one. And Casillus has put himself in danger before to get to Gabriel when the connection has broken. Gabriel is about to be challenged even more though. Between his grandmother's eager new boyfriend and the increasingly disturbing visions, Gabriel's secret will be revealed and the consequences could be deadly.

I have just fallen in love with this series and these characters. Each installment is a day in the life of Gabriel Braven as he learns he is Mer, he has a very special and highly rare gift among the Mer, and his mate is a prince no less. The suspense is killing me! I am almost certain that is more to Grandma's boyfriend that we've even learned to date, I don't trust him, and neither does anyone else except Grandma. Just one more installment to go before Gabriel will have to leave his life on land, leave behind his best friend and his grandma for a life under the sea with Casillus. And there is still the issue with Mr. Boyfriend and the monster that haunts Gabriel's thoughts, why did the creature that destroys save Gabriel from drowning when he was a boy? I cannot wait to find out!

You really have to listen to these stories if you are a fan of Merman stories or paranormal romance. Chris Patton does such a good job of capturing the perfect voice for each character, their emotions at a given time in the story right down to being sad, happy or exsasperated. There is such energy and youth to his tone when he's voicing Gabriel, then there is that smooth as honey, sex on a stick voice he has for Casillus. It's the perfect blend of a highly imaginative story brought to life with the right voice.
