DrMM's blog about books, the universe and everything (actually, just books). I currently read mostly YA/MG fantasy, although the only thing I won't read is horror.
Mini-Review: Typical teenage romance drama -- only with mermaids! Lily is a princess of the mermaid kingdom who is half-human. She decides to live with her Aunt Rachel on land and go to a human high school where she develops an insanely huge crush on some boy. Only when she's about to confess her feelings to said crush, her nemesis Quince kisses her. And the typical soul-bond nonsense ensues. The plot basically revolves around Lily trying to get her father to revoke the bond while Quince tries to convince Lily that she should love him instead of boy-crush. But, of course, Lily just might have feelings for Quince.
While I didn't dislike this book the way I did The Vicious Deep (mainly because Lily and Quince aren't quite as annoying as Tristan), it's missing the plot,action and politics that made The Vicious Deep tolerable.
Final Verdict: If you're looking for a fluffy romance read with no substantial characterizations or plot or are obsessed with mermaid books, read it. Otherwise, it's pretty forgettable.
My only question is if I should read the next book, since the teaser for it implied there might actually be a plot in it.
