Ciye Cho has created a beautiful underwater setting for her book, Florence. It is filled with vivid scenery and underwater creatures. I've always been fascinated by what lies beneath the oceans. There are so many cool plants and animals. Mermaids are what every little girl dreams about at some point or another, I think, so they make a good subject for writing. I'm glad that this book wasn't too dark and that the mermaids (for the most part) are kind and happy creatures.

The book started out really slow for me. It was hard to get into and connect with the characters but about half way through things picked up a bit and I found myself enjoying the book a lot more. By the end I was really rooting for Florence, Rolan and Kiren.

The ending leaves things wide open for another book. The Darkness is just beginning to wreak their havoc, I think. There might just be more to Florence than meets the eye. I'm going to be looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

Content: There is some mild swearing.
