Review by: Kat on Nov. 06, 2014 :
From the very start of this story you feel for Kai as he tries to deal with his curious predicament. As you continue you find yourself becoming increasingly invested in the mystery and the unravelling of his unfortunate curse - is it real, or imagined, in his head or in his soul (and only in this world could a literally soul wrenching examination help us practically determine an answer to such questions!).

Through Under the Bright Water, we take the sometimes sad, sometimes quirky, sometimes fantastic journey with Kai to discover the meaning behind his affliction. I really enjoyed the imagery and detail that immerses the reader into the story, though like all the stories in the treading twisting lines series, it left me with the feeling that this can only be the beginning!
