Jamie Zaccaria | 219 comments I LOVED this book! It's the type of story Michael Crichton would tell but with an obvious female voice. The diversity in characters was amazing and the specifics behind the science/technology the perfect balance of enough and not too much. This is how you write about killer mermaids!

My only pet peeves would be that I felt there was too much explaining in some of the writing (have some confidence in your audience's intelligence) and the ending lacked enough of a bang.

That being said, it was a long book and I was sad when it was over. This will definitely be one of my favorite I've read this year.

Technically, I give it 4.5 stars but personal preference it's a full 5 STARS for me!

Nicole R (drnicoler) | 7784 comments Also, there is a local author out here whose books I stumbled across and you might enjoy them. It is a trilogy and the first is Waking the Merrow. They are just fast-faced, fun entertainment!

I do admit though that part of their appeal to me is that they are set in RI and weave in so many local places and history. So, they may not pack the same entertainment punch they did for me.

So technically it's a sequel to a novella but you don't need to read that. So yes, you can go ahead and just read it as a standalone easily.
