In this novelette we are introduced to Madly James and the world in which she lives. On the surface, you would think she is a typical 17-year-old, but in actuality, she is a princess. Atlas, her home, lies deep beneath the sea. Magic protects Atlas and the town of Slumber. Here, she and her friends attend school and learn to interact outside Atlas with the human world. Then something happens, something that hasn't happened in hundreds of years, a Mer is murdered, but that is only the beginning. Someone has released the dreaded Lore, and they are holding Atlas, and Madly's family captive. As a result of the murder, someone from Madly's past steps back into her life, Sentinel Jackson Hamilton, hotness incarnate, the object of her affection for as long as she can remember. The problem is that she is betrothed to another who like her, is of royal blood. He is also her best friend, Aidan. Not only does Madly have to deal with the crisis of saving her race, but also the battle between her heart and her head, because the heart wants what the heart wants.

This is the perfect beginning to an absolutely awesome series. I loved Madly, and Jackson, well let's just say he makes you sizzle just to think about him. Aidan and Jersey (who is also Jackson's sister), are Madly's best friends and they have been together forever. They were fun to get to know, especially Jersey. The story is fast paced, entertaining, and romantic. Trust me, these Mer folk are some you really want to get to know. M. Leighton has done an outstanding job of laying the groundwork for a mesmerizing series.
