This story was so cute–I enjoyed every second of it. The characters were well developed, the world-building was well described and not once did I get lost throughout the book. Sarah Henning brings the right amount of adventure, fantasy and romance into this Little Mermaid spin-off. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to give anything away, but this book is a must.
Our main character is Evie and it’s told from her point of view. She’s best friend with prince–Nik–and what both of them have in common is that they lost a friend (Anna) to the ocean a couple of years before. Later on during the story, a new friend comes along and Evie tries saving her–and that’s what the story is about. I love how selfless Evie is, she sacrificed herself throughout the entire story, never thinking about herself when she makes decisions and always putting the needs of others before hers.
Nik is such underrated character because throughout the book, he’s just Evie’s friend, but at the end of the story he shows us how strong he truly is and for that, I admire him. They’re many twists and turns and the ending of the book is totally unexpected but you will absolutely love it. This book is about friendship, finding true love and making important sacrifices. It will kind of break your heart a little but it’ll be okay, I’ll be here if you need to talk to me.
Also, I didn’t want to include this because then you guys are going to think that my opinion is biased, but the author is super sweet. We picked this book for our book club read of last month and she contacted me saying that she would love to Skype us and join the discussion. She answered all our questions and we enjoyed every last bit of it. I was super excited!
But anyways, I would recommend this book for anyone 12 years-old and older. If you like adventure, fantasy, a little bit of magic, mermaids, witches, and finding true love books, then this is the book for you!
