Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he's heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen—literally, ouch!—both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma's gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom...
Told from both Emma and Galen's points of view, here a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance. -Goodreads
This is one of the best mer-based books that I have ever read.
Emma and her best friend Chloe are in for the summer of their lives, the world is their oyster abd the tide is high.
This is the setting in which we meet the beautiful but awkward Emma, who then crashes into the outrageously hunky Galen.
The chemistry between Galen and Emma is what first draws readers into this wonderful read. Emma is very unsure about pretty much everything in her life. Chloe is her anchor; when Chloe is then killed by a shark, the emotionally unmoored Emma needs her enchantingly mysterious suitor.
It takes a moment to get used to Galen's persistence in the pursuit of his fishy lady, but when you come to learn the importance of Emma to the underwater world of the Syrena.
Watching Emma as she comes to realize who she is, and the power that she has is wonderful. This book is very well paced and the story is full of surprises.
As if that is not enough, this book is also choc full of characters interesting enough to warrant their own books.
This is the best book ever and I love it!
