I found myself captivated by the story of the young woman who has to save her people even though it means she will probably have to kill her best friend in the massacre. We see Meela’s friendship with the mermaid Lysi build toward a betrayal that drives us through to the annual massacre.
Tiana creates a believable world of the far north where the people of an isolated island must battle the mermaids to survive. It was hard to put down because the author was able to draw me into the battle with Meela. I wanted the islanders to win, but I knew that there must be another way.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves a complex story of love, loyalty, and discovery.
