I am heir to a dying throne, daughter of a dead city. I have made hard choices to get this far … ”Mermaids have never been scarier …The Feed is upon me and my destiny is laid out before me like a map.

Only then can they return to the sea and become the last bastion against the violet ocean, warriors for their weaker brethren, the fishtailed merighean.Natalie is the heir to the throne of the last merighean city still standing, but there's something about the Feed that doesn't sit right with her.

Because sometimes, to choose your own path, you must make hard choices....

    If you're thinking that you will encounter mermaids playing with dolphins while singing "Under the Sea" like "The Little Mermaid," this book may not be the book for you."They were paramours and cannibals both, consuming, taking, destroying.""They broke spirits and souls; families crashed to the floor like glass and were never again whole.""They came to steal seed,life, came to bleed flesh.They came to feed."This book had a lot of potential and I really wanted to love it. However, even though you have a little bit of everything; (romance, action, drama...) the book left a lot of unaswered questions which probably will be answered in the other two books, but I think they could have been answered on this one. I don´t want to spoil this too much, so I listed the things I liked and dislike:May contain spoilersThings I liked:-The way Natalie thought most of the time.-How she described both worlds. (Human and Merighean)-Seth xD-The concept is very interesting.Things I didn´t like:-Jenna-The story was very slow-paced for me. (But is just the way I think)-Natalie kissing Seth and Yuri. I mean! come on! Choose one. I don´t like "love triangles," both of them love her and one of them will get hurt at the end.-I needed more action and romance.Questions during the book:-How mermans can have children?-In this books mermaids and sirens are the same?-Why Natalie looked dull when Seth took pictures of her outside of the water?-Will Natalie choose one of them (Yuri or Seth) in the second book? is bugging me. I don´t want to read (during the other books)Natalie´s confusing feelings about them.Overall, this book was ok! I liked the hunstwomen and the role they played in their kingdom, and I also liked Natalie. (most of the time)Am I reading the sequel?Yep, I'm intrigued to know what happens next with the Merighean kingdom and Seth.

    This was the first Mer/Siren book I've read, and I very much loved it! I'm a big fan of Stunich's writing, it is so relaxed and not pushed. She has a way of making you love characters you normally wouldn't for example: a tattooed-hurst driving-social outcast and flesh-eating siren. I loved the plot and the character interactions. There were several 'lol' moments and definitely some very swoony moments as well!Natalie is sent to shore with expectations of going ashore, luring a male, getting him to impregnate her, and then literally devouring him. The last thing she expected, was to meet Seth. He was covered with mystical tattoos and (almost) resistant to her lure. Seven days to fall for Seth. She had seven days to forge her destiny.

    I just can't get enough of mermaids.The book in its entirety is certainly unique with its take on mermaids with no kid-friendliness. The darkness makes the allure of it hauntingly beautiful in a way. The modern world would definitly cause great harm to secret magical people. Despite the human flesh cravings I pitied them being slave to their genes. The ending leaves me wanting more.

    They were paramours and cannibals both, consuming, taking, destroying. They broke spirits and souls; families crashed to the floor like glass and were never again whole. They came to steal seed, life, came to bleed flesh.They came to feed. Gah!! Once again C.M. Stunich has knocked me on my arse!! She certainly knows her way around the supernatural -I'm beginning to wonder if shes even human- nothing is off limits or in any way a cookie cutter adventure. Her books are unlike anything I have ever encountered, such uniqueness is so very hard to come by these days. This book is no exception, I will never again be able to watch “the little mermaid”.Natalie is a Huntswoman -half Merighean/half human, also a siren- she is approaching a turning point in her life called 'the feed'. At the age of sixteen she needs to venture onto dry land for one weeks time, pick a human male to impregnate her, then kill and eat him before she returns to the sea, thus bringing a part of the lands magic back into the sea with her. Failure is not an option, it will result in her death. This is her path in life, one she has not chosen, and one she does not wish to fulfill. She wants to forge her own destiny and change the way things are done. Seth, with his mysterious tattoos, is the human male she has chosen. That is all I will say about the plot, this is really something you just have to experience as it comes. The authors attention to detail and her descriptions really bring this whole new world to life in such a way that you can almost see it right in front of you without being bogged down or bored with the details. The characters (even though they are mythological & clearly nothing like anyone you have ever know) are so easy to connect to and fall in love with. I just loved it. But damn, the ending left me screaming, gasping, pulling my hair out needing to know what the hell will happen next. I'm starting to learn the hard way that Ms. Stunich is very good at leaving me starving for more. You really need to check out this author, her imagination knows no bounds. It all seems so real, I'm curious what secrets shes really hiding ;)I live in a world that doesn't understand me. I've been raised with a life already planned and a destiny chosen. But what if I want to make my own destiny? What if I want something different than everyone else? What does that make me?These questions have no answers as far as I know. But then, it's not as if I can ask them to anyone. If I even uttered a breath of dissent, my mother would come down on me like a hurricane, sweep me in the air and throw me against the rocks at the edge of the sea. I would never recover.

    Natalie is to become queen of the last merighean city left standing. All she has to do is on her sixteenth birthday is go with the others Huntswoman and Feed. There is several problems with that. One is she doesn't like the Feed and wants to change it when she becomes queen. Two is the queen her mother doesn't like her and does what she can to hurt her at every chance. The third is she grows to care for Seth, the one she has to mate with and feed on. She doesn't know what to do and she can't follow her heart.This is an interesting and different take on mermaids. Some are the typical mermaids and some that come from the mating on the Hunt can become human and are like sirens. It is up to them to bring back flesh and mate to begin the cycle over again. You really get to see the amazing world through Natalie's eyes as the author does an amazing job creating this world. Natalie really tries her best to fight the urges she has and wants to be good. She finds Seth is different from what she has always been told and really doesn't want to leave him. Seth has a few secrets his self that even he hasn't figured out yet that add a great touch to the book. I look forward to seeing just what all he has to do with this fantastic world. If you think all mermaids are sweet like Disney portrays them then you definitely need to read this book. You get to see the darker side of the underwater world and a mother that will make you think she comes straight from hell. I really loved this book and look forward to reading more of the story. The ending has a twist I didn't see coming and I have to know what happens next. Recommended for anyone wanting a different book to read that steps outside the box.

    This is about a mermaid who is half human. She is an heir to a dying race of mer-people who have a long history of violence by killing human men after they mate this is called the feed. In this story we are on the Journey with Natalie as she tries to find herself plus save her people in the process. She also meets Seth who is the human she is supposed to have mated with. As her Journey continues we see that this race is not cold-hearted just misdirected by a ruthless Queen.I enjoyed the story however I was a little disappointed by the description of the sex part and I am definitely not talking about intercourse just the build up and so forth. The author glanced over it like it was nothing then just dismissed it. I would totally be ok with that in a story however this is what the story is about especially since she named the book after it. I wanted to know all about her people and Seth but that wasn't quite detailed either. I really enjoyed the characters and understood where she was coming from with her mother. The queen totally acted like a bitch and I hope in the coming stories she puts her in her place. Overall it was enjoyable and this story is going somewhere however I probably won't go there.

    Definitely not The Little Mermaid! The Feed is a dark love story that rocks. "When the Huntswomen go to Feed, they are taking the earth's power within them and delivering it to the sea. " This single sentence piqued my curiosity. As I read more and more of the story, I fell in love with it. Natalie is half merighean meaning she is only half mermaid. That's tail. Her mom is Queen of their city and came to dry land to find a male human to empregnate her. This is how Natalie came into existence. Now it is Natalie's turn to travel to dry land to find a male of her own. But she doesn't want this...not the way her people do it. She wants love, choice and freedom. But will she find all of these things or will her mother find out shes attempting change and imprison her in the watery hell of Neptune's Daughter, Imenea, Goddess of the Failed Huntswomen? I find that I am becoming a huge fan of C.M's books. Her stories seem slightly dark and twisted which is a style I absolutely love! She always leaves you hanging and cursing because you can't wait to read the next installment. Now I have to start The Hunt, book 2 of The Huntswomen Trilogy!

    I gave the book 5 stars because it is a great story and a unique take on the mermaid concept. The feed is a carnivorous, sex filled week of lust and baby making. But Seth is a different kind of human than Natalie has been taught to guard herself against. He is not susceptible to her charms or powers and yet he falls for her anyway, offering himself freely. Even though she has developed feelings for Seth, she must go back to the ocean. As the future queen, it is her duty to raise her people up and restore her kingdom to glory. I can't wait for the rest of this trilogy!

    I did not think I would like this book as much as I did, mermaids are not what I usually go to. But this story was different, then again I should have known that coming from CM Stunich. I was a little disappointed with how some scenes felt short, maybe rushed, but other than that I thought it was solid storytelling. Great description of things, great characters, the mother/daughter relationship there is very interesting. And the ending? Wow. Didn't see it coming. I knew Seth would be taken, but how it all went down was surprising. Book 2 please, NOW!

    A great beginning to a great trilogy, I can't wait for the next book to come out. I just adore mermaids and Stunich gave us the not pretty little mermaid we all know as Ariel but a much darker, more intriguing mermaid story. I loved this book, I knew I should have stopped reading it at page two, but by page three I was hooked! I cannot wait to read the next book!!
