Lighthearted, enchanting, and interesting, this book kept my attention the whole way through. Compared to all the vampire, zombie, apocalyptic, and other types of dark-themed books which are out there, this book is a welcome relief. It focuses a lot on relationships, family, and other warm topics, but also includes secrecy, suspense, and other such topics. I highly recommend this for anyone who loves stories about mermen/mermaids.

Couldn't get enough of this book! Sheri L Swift is a master of fanciful writing. Reminds me of a more modern, female version of Tolkien. A friend of mine let me borrow this book and I loved it so much I had to buy my own copy. It was like a breath of fresh air. Something very different and wholesome. Wonderful book for preteens and young teens and the occasional adult like me who never really grew up and quit believing in mermaids.
