This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
Serafina, Neela, Ling, Ava, Becca, and Astrid, six mermaids from realms scattered throughout the seas and freshwaters, were summoned by the leader of the river witches to learn an incredible truth: the mermaids are direct descendants of the Six Who Ruled-powerful mages who once governed the lost empire of Atlantis. The ancient evil that destroyed Atlantis is stirring again, and only the mermaids can defeat it. To do so, they need to find magical talismans that belonged to the Six.
Serafina believes her talisman was buried with an old shipwreck. While researching its location, she is almost discovered by a death rider patrol led by someone familiar. . . . The pain of seeing him turned traitor is devastating.
Neela travels to Matali to warn her parents of the grave threat facing their world. But they find her story outlandish; a sign that she needs to be confined to her chamber for rest and recovery. She escapes and travels to Kandina, where her talisman is in the possession of fearsome razormouth dragons.
As they hunt for their talismans, both Serafina and Neela find reserves of courage and cunning they didn’t know they possessed. They face down danger and death, only to endure a game-changing betrayal, as shocking as a rogue wave.
The epic fantasy story continues with this thrilling and exciting adventure across the oceans. I’m madly in love with this series. It’s as if you’re there yourself swimming alongside the mermaids looking at all the beautiful Coral Reef.
The story takes off right where we left it in the first. There’s a little review of the major things that happened in Deep Blue and then its full throttle.
Serafina is our main character. She went through a major changed from the start of the first book and now. She’s awesome, strong and smart. In this second book we follow more than her, which really works for the book. The only reason this works is the way the author describes everything to us.
I love how the whole story seem so realistic, even though it takes place under water it’s more real than anything I’ve read in a long time. Everyone who loves a good fantasy adventure are going to fall in love with this.
Read it! You won’t regret it! It’s such a beautiful story; even if you’re not that interested in fantasy, overall I’d still recommend you reading this. The characters are sublime and the writing is damn near perfect. I’m going to invest in some more stuff she wrote!
It’s not predictable like so many other stories out there. In addition, you’re never bored. Something new happens all the time.
Read it! Read it! Read it! I really want to tell you much more about it and why it’s great but you really should get the pleasure of reading it yourself!
