Stealing the Wind (Mermen of Ea, #1)Stealing the Wind by Shira Anthony

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this one. Taran, a young slave boy, is kidnapped by a pirate, Rider and in many ways Taran doesn't mind. He's always wanted to be on the sea and he is well treated by Rider and his partner, Bastian. Taran is quickly brought into their bed with the promise of release after three years of service both to the ship and to them. He is content with his life until he has to go overboard to save a friend who fell over during a storm.

Taran miraculously doesn't die but he finds himself in the hands of another captain, Ian, who is rivals at best with Rider. As Ian's prisoner Taran's life goes a little sideways. Ian has a deep secrets but Taran does as well, ones he's not even aware of. Ian finds himself drawn to Taran almost instantly but bound to duty he does something that has dire consequences for Taran.

The action really kicks off as Ian tries to right that mistake and Taran learns more about who and what he truly is.

Ian and Taran are very enjoyable characters and I had a lot of fun with this.
