Smashwords book reviews by Rinesh Hegde

    I was super excited to read a fantasy book about Mermaids. Unfortunately this is one of those books which makes you think why on earth did I even start this Book. The topic is good and I was expecting more out of it but unfortunately I was disappointed with the outcome. The story has a good pace and the characters are much much better then the usual YA books or Chic Lit books. Still the way the story was built the end was really disappointing, it actually felt that the author was told to please finish the 1st part asap. The worst part is there is nothing in this book that will make me read the 2nd part. There is no intrigue at all; the end is the end that's it. I don't think I would have known that there is a 2nd part if it was not mentioned at the start. Hopefully the 2nd part will be better then this.

    The first page or rather the first chapter ensures that readers don't just keep the book aside but actually read it. The first chapter has the ability to captivate the reader by giving just a gist of the storyline but unfortunately after that it just drags. The detailing about the house on the mountain makes you wonder what exactly does the author wants us to remember (hopefully it will be used in the 2nd part). The romance is not only old-fashioned but even calling it old-fashioned is a mistake. The worst is Alexandra's acceptance of her powers; it felt that she always knew about it but just remembered it. Seriously who will react like this especially when they come to know that they have such powers. Her experimentation with her powers looked more like a Standard Procedure which needs to be followed for understanding powers. Damn!!! Unfortunately there was nothing for me to go on still completed it with half of my mind wandering about things I should be doing rather than read this book.
