This book was a great dystopian about mermaids. Something different that I needed in my reading material. Mers are people with webbed toes and fingers and they have yellow eyes. They have magic within their body so humans and pirates try to capture the Mers. They use their eyes for amulets, their hair for wigs, and their skin to remain looking young. Mira the main character constantly wonders why she is not like The Mers. She doesn't have webbed features, yellow eyes, and most importantly she can't breathe underwater. Her parents tell her they found her washed up on shore in a basket so Mira along with her boyfriend Nerin and his sister Neriessa they cross the border which separates the Mers from the humans in order to find her parents. Mira finds them along with a half brother and later discovers that she is a mermaid from the King Posedin. A mermaid has a fin, can breathe underwater, and hypnotize people with their singing. Mira slowly is changing into one. She has to stop her father from destroying the Mers the people she had grown up with and loved her whole life.
