Review: Deep Blue & Giveaway

Deep Blue

Publication Date:  May 1st 2014       




Waterfire Saga is an epic new series set in the depths of the ocean where six mermaids seek to save their world.
Written by Carnegie Medal winning author of A Gathering Light, Jennifer Donnelly.

When Serafina, a mermaid of the Mediterranean Sea, awakens on the morning of her betrothal, her biggest worry should be about reuniting with handsome Prince Mahdi, her childhood crush. Instead she finds herself haunted by strange dreams foretelling the return of an ancient evil, and dealing with the deaths of her parents as assassins storm the betrothal ceremony, plunging the city into chaos.

Led only by her shadowy dreams and pursued by the invading army, Serafina and her best friend Neela embark on a quest to avenge her parents' death and prevent a war between the mer nations. In the process they discover a plot that threatens their - and our - world's very existence.



So, Mermaids don't float my boat. You know, I wasn't really all that into The Little Mermaid, and Ariel in Once Upon a Time annoys the hell out of me. So yeah, I can't say I like or read about them much. That being said, Deep Blue just had something that completely captivated me.
