Some would say I look like a mermaid, the essence of nautical beauty. I looked in the mirror and saw a monster....
Astrid Murphy, born with strange webbed hands and a thirst for saltwater, feels like a freak. She desires to look and feel normal, just like her family. But Astrid doesn’t realize that she’s meant to be the next ruler of the Deep Clan, a race of merfolk who are dying from pollution and overhunting. She is the only one who can save them.
Zander’s mission was to find Astrid and bring her home. Not fall in love with his target. Surrounded in a web of danger, a forbidden love between clan daughter and warrior blossoms. Zander knows they can’t focus on each other, and the Deep Clan must come first. But it’s the one enemy Astrid never expected who will tear it all down. Her father. The one person who was supposed to love and protect her, will do anything to keep her from fulfilling her destiny with Zander. Even kill.
As Astrid and Zander fight for their world, they learn the true depth of what it means to love, the power of hope, and what it means to be free.
My Review: 5 STARS
I picked this up because of the title, and the blurb. I was dragged into the pages and into the story, needing to continue with it like it was oxygen. I loved Astrid and Zander, loved watching their story come to life in the words. The world was beautifully crafted and excellently told. I was hooked from word one til the very end and adored the ending. The characters were so life like and the many twists and turns the story took just made you hungry for more. A very enjoyable read with an excellent message, and one that I highly recommend!
