Submerging is the second book in Shana Norris's series, Swan's Landing, a series about fin folk. It was enjoyable, not as much as the first book, but I did like the author's unique setting and family themes. I will read the next book in the series, but I will be expecting more.

I received this ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review. I also read the first book Surfacing and you can read that review here.

I really enjoyed this book. The pace was set perfectly and I think I have a bit of a crush on Callum. I love when authors have the ability to make you fall in the love with characters and Shana Norris did just that.

This book starts off almost right when the last ended and we get a switch in the main character. Meet Sailor: she was a bratty, bull-headed,

So good!

This series has absolutely taken me by surprise! I didn't think I would like the changing perspectives and different stories that were all intertwined, but I love it. The characters are well developed and the stories are well written. I admire the female characters and Shana Norris for making them strong and independent, but still loveable and vulnerable. Can't wait to keep reading!

Bears some of the originality of the predecessor (but its faults as well), and touches serious family issues and yet I was unable to connect with the story. Pros concern unique setting, family themes. The plot and world are however sketchy as are (partially) the characters...Again, this book like its precedent, left me wanting more. Three stars.

Unlike the one I read earlier this year (The Tail of Emily Windsnap), this is how you do YA Lit without talking down to them.

Not as much of a page turner as the first one. But really picks up and get good at the end. Can't wait to see what happens next.
