When I first heard about this one, I was sold as soon as the word mermaids was mentioned. But then I come to find out it's more about their search for their king and my excitement grew. It seems our main character Tristan gets a whopping surprise when he discovers he might just fit their requirements, not to mention there are super high stakes involved in his decision and this revelation. Its rare I read a book with a guy's point of view and with their narration, so I always look forward to the change of pace. Here's hoping this read lives up to my excitement.
I guess I've got another water themed addition to make the list of recommendations because this one got me immediately! Being rescued at sea by a hunk....oh yeah! This girl seems to be a character who's unfortunate circumstances will have readers emotionally involved from page one. Heck I'm emotionally invested after just reading the book's description. But honestly it was the mysterious vibe surrounding this plot that really pushed me over the edge. I can't wait to see what happens and I'm actually hoping I'm left guessing until the very end. I'm unfamiliar with Davies, but am really looking forward to see what she brings to the young adult literature world.
I could have called this the water edition of countdowns at the rate I'm going because here's yet another aquatic future read. While this one hints at an underwater kingdom and beings with unusual powers and talents in connection with water and the creatures who call it home, that's not the only reason behind the TBR addition. It was more the relationship between the two main characters that really got my attention. Calen and Emma's confusing and mysterious connection drew me in and I'm anxious to see if a great romance is in the works for these two. It all just sounds too juicy for me to pass up.
