This has just about everything I liked in my reads. Excitement, adventure and a very sweet budding romance between two life long friends. No love triangles here folks which will please many readers I'm sure.
I also liked that it wasn't very predictable. Mira knew that she wasn't a Mer but she wasn't sure if she was human either. Discovering that her parents found her, Mira goes to seek her real parents on the shores, only what she discovers is something no one saw coming, even the reader. But what I liked best about this book is that it ended the way I wanted it to. I wasn't sure at first since books these days seem to go the same way, with evil cliffies and wrong choices and frustrating characters. But in this book everything is as it should be and I found that really refreshing.
All in all I really liked this one. It was fun, entertaining and captivating and I enjoyed every minute.
Well done!" -TINA FROM GOODREADS
