really liked it

I received this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this! I enjoyed the first book last year, and was looking forward to this. I liked the take on the story originally, and this follows on really nicely - encompassing more of the little mermaid story we know, but still putting its own twist - like Runa, the sea king and the war. I particularly liked how the war played into it, and into the threat to the underwater kingdom.

I ended up really liking Alia, who I thought was initially a little naive, but Runa was the star of the show for me. Her dedication to her sister was so lovely, and how she wanted to do what was right. Her coven was super fun, as was the difference between sea and land magic.

Plus again it challenges who we perceive as the bad and good guys. I did want a little more history into the sea king, to see some of his motivations, but other than that I thought it was perfectly balanced.
