While I was reading this book, I thought, oh, my god, this was book about me. My name is Marina, too. I love the ocean, too. I am curious person, too. Even I'm not a teenager anymore, and I don't dress like a diva like Marina does, this was a book about me. LOL!
The main character is Marina, a sixteen-years-old girl, who lost her mother at birth. Now she travels around the world with her father. But, she has to settle down, hang out with friends at her age and go to normal school, so her father leaves her with her aunt and cousin. She doesn't like it first, but when she meets Ethan, it's a whole different story. Her whole world changed when she had almost drowned, and there, near that old boat, she saw a mermaid, yes, a mermaid, with a face like hers, eyes like hers, calling her "sister".
And now, her whole world turns upside-down.
I found myself really enjoying this book. I liked the writing. This is my first mermaid book , but it won't be the last. This is young adult book, not much for my age of thirty, but it was entertaining. There were romantic elements in the book, but this book can't be classified as romance. I was expecting more paranormal stuff, but that was it. My opinion is 3,5, but if I have to choose whole number, 4.
This story actually starts many years ago when a man named Clifford was bitten by a snake in Amazon and became the very first demon. One generation after another, there were many like him, but there was one who was different: he wasn't evil. So the first angel was born.
I loved this story, story for eternal fight between angels and demons. You never know who the really good guys are. And the girl between....Taylor struggles with her own nightmares. She is an average girl, noticed by this gorgeous guy Gabriel. Her best friend is more than average. Sam is the girl who is every high school guy's dream. Two of them are total opposites, but perfect match. I liked Taylor's personality, her way to fight the things that scare her. I liked her relationship with her father after her mom passed away.
And the guys, Gabriel and Chris....An angel and demon, two freshmen at college...two guys fighting for the girl. Both gorgeous, both so hot! I loved them both.
This book is part of a trilogy. Great cover, by the way! I adored the first part, I will definitely read the rest of the books. A modern story with a very old theme. Angels and demons, eternal fight between good and evil, right and wrong. But what is actually right and what wrong?
