About Mira Zamin

I'm a recent college graduate who loves traveling, eating, and eating while traveling. I majored in ancient and medieval history, which I found to be a constant source of literary inspiration as well as general fascination. I grew up loving to read and write, especially historical fiction and fantasy—anything that can open up amazing new worlds, a philosophy I try to bring to my own writing.

My profile picture and the cover of "Daughter of the Sea" (accidentally) have the same pose. The subconscious is a weird and whacky place.

This story was a disappointment. The mythology was great, with a unique twist on Atlantis, but the execution did not match the potential of the story.

Everything seemed to happen too fast and the ending didn’t really have a good conclusion. There were numerous gaps of time where it wasn’t even mention how much time had passed. But for everything to have happened, the time lapsed over the course of the book seemed much too long.

Calista was a frustrating character. She was a mix of brave and whiny, headstrong and brat. She was forever changing her mind and causing trouble. She wasn’t at all likable, which made it even harder to enjoy the story.

Overall, I was not impressed with either the characters, the plot or the execution. I did like the twist on Atlantis, but it wasn’t enough to redeem the book.

History and mythology and a great imagination. A good read. Very well written. I, too, am hoping for a sequel.

A lovely story that engages the reader from the start...good characters with an unusual take on Atlantis. Look forward to a sequel.
