Andy | 14078 comments Starting with Book 1!

Serafina, daughter of Isabella, Queen of Miromara, has been raised with the expectation - and burden - that she will someday become ruler of the oldest civilization of the merfolk. On the eve of the Dokimí ceremony, which will determine if she is worthy of the crown, Sera is haunted by a strange dream that foretells the return of an ancient evil. But her nightmare is forgotten the next day as she diligently practices her songspell; eagerly anticipates a reunion with her best friend, Neela; and anxiously worries about Mahdi, the crown prince of Matali, and whether his feelings toward her and their future betrothal have changed. Most of all, she worries about not living up to her mother's hopes.

The Dokimí proceeds, a dazzling display of majesty and might, until a shocking turn of events interrupts it: an assassin's arrow wounds Isabella. The realm falls into chaos, and Serafina's darkest premonitions are confirmed. Now she and Neela must embark on a quest to find the assassin's master and prevent a war between the mer nations. Their search will lead them to other mermaid heriones scattered across the six seas. Together they will form an unbreakable bond of sisterhood as they uncover a conspiracy that threatens their world's very existence.

Alaina (ameserole) so quick! I was going to start this book but then there was "family drama" and I just needed to get away from everything and watch a movie. Tomorrow I'm going to a bunch of wineries so I'll probably be able to read this book tomorrow night or Sunday. So by then I will definitely be reading your comments :D


Andy | 14078 comments Awesome! It was only 6 parts so super quick!! It is kind of slow though.

I have the ebook because I have way too many audios right now!! So I figured for each physical I have an audio or two. I started one today but then I just kind of got caught in errands and other stuff too


Andy | 14078 comments That's totally fine! I'm just starting my thanksgiving break so mostly I'll be reading and studying :D

Alaina (ameserole) ugh my comment doesn't even make sense since I already started deep blue :( hahah I haven't had any coffee today so I'm all over the place. But I'll probably restart it since I've read so many books today and yesterday

Andy | 14078 comments Only two books left! I thought Dark Tide was okay, it actually had some plot rather than just whiny characters doing nothing.

Andy | 14078 comments I agree about the food, I try to tune most of it out because I hate/can't eat most seafood and a lot of it just sounds gross. I think book 3 was where the series got better for me. There was a hint in book 2, but in the beginning I was really annoyed with Neela/Sera.


Alaina (ameserole) Haha yes I have.
