Running away from home was never Chloe Kowalski’s plan. Neither was ending up the target of killers, or having her body change in unusual ways. She only wanted a vacation, someplace far from her crazy parents and their irrational fear of water. She only wanted to do something normal for once, and maybe get to know her best friend’s hot stepbrother a bit better at the same time.

But the first day she goes out on the ocean, strange things start to happen. Dangerous things that should be impossible. Things to which ‘normal’ doesn’t even begin to apply.

Now madmen are hunting her. A mysterious guy with glowing blue eyes is following her. And her best friend’s stepbrother seems to be hiding secrets all his own.

It was supposed to be a vacation. It’s turning out to be a whole lot more.

Not Your Average Mermaid Story
May 28th, 2016
I don't actively seek after "mermaid" books. There, I've said it. Regardless, I've read at least a handful through the years. They typically follow the expected rules of The Little Mermaid or Splash, but this one had its own world building and specific mythology, which was pretty darn cool. The first sentence started with a hook, and the strangeness of Chloe's life is instantly engaging. The plot carried me forward at a good pace, and yes, there were twists. Very unexpected ones near the end. Totally got me. This book has the same appeal as Josephine Angelini's STARCROSSED, except with mermaids. If you enjoy paranormal or myth based stories, this is probably a winner for you. Content warning: Clean.
