Wow you guys what a book!
When I first started reading it, I could not decide if I liked it or not, but as I kept persisting with it, I then realized how amazing this is.
We meet Vanessa a lovely mermaid princess and her little brother Triton. They are both fun and lead a nice life but Vanessa wants to be the next queen and Triton is more into about having fun. A lot of things come into play and destinies are forged!
This story is about how a whole set of circumstances, behaviors and decisions lead you to become what you never wanted to be. It was really a sad book and my heart broke out for her and at the end you know, all I could think of is that I really could not blame Vanessa.
I mean really, how much bad luck and betrayals can one person go through.
It is a bit extreme, but you know what this could happen to any one of us.
This isn’t a fun happy book, but there are many lessons to be taken from it for sure. I know this is book 1 of a series and I am really curious to see if book 2 will follow Ursela (that is Vanessa for you) further down her life or if we are moving to a new set of characters.
A part of me hopes we will keep on with her because there is one massive unresolved question regarding her love interest that we get no answer on. If you are curious you need to read on my darlings!
I think this was really a fantastic change of tone considering the recent books I have been reading and I am going to very highly recommend it to you guys.
I really hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
