We are introduced to the strong headed Pym, who is not only dedicated to her sister and family but has the itch to find out the truth about their world. She, and the rest of humanity who had grown up on the floating city of Aqua were brought up to believe they were the last remaining humans to have survived. The truth and secrets that her father tried to cover is chilling, when Pym and Rush start to find clues that nothing is as it seems.
But Pym's father isn't the only man that is holding onto a incredible secret. Rush, through his entire friendship with Pym, had considered her his best friend and secret crush. But when he hits the water something extraordinary happens that just takes your breath away.
This was such a unique idea, it was fast paced, never stopping as the twists and turns keep coming at me like relentless waves. I especially love l.L Hunter's creativity and the swarm of emotions as Pym and Rush not only figure out their fathers' deception, but attempt to de-tangle the web of love formed between each other.
Pym is the one of the protagonists, a 17 year old natural born swimmer living in The Community after a world wide natural disaster wipes out the world's population in 2012.
Not to give anything away but this novella has a twilight-like twist you will like.
After seeing something on the watery horizon, Pym and her best friend Rush got out to investigate, hoping it's another community they've been devoid of for years. They discover something that will change their lives forever.
I came across L L Hunter's work through Facebook. I'm glad I did. Her writing is quick and precise, very empathetic to her teen protagonists.
Her story is original. I like the dystopian theme which involves a world wide disaster that leaves most of the population dead. It's all about human survival.
I have to say, as a animal lover myself, I enjoyed the scene with the baby animals. I won't say more to avoid spoilers.
For a quick enjoyable read, don't pass on this novella. Looking forward to the sequel.
"Secrets and water have one thing in common:
they get distorted on the surface."
I have recently found this book and I was at first allured by its mysterious cover and by the synopsis. I usually do not tend to read e-books since I do not own a suited e-reader but I really wanted to give this book a go since it was not that big and it sounded really good.
After reading a few pages I was really wondering what the book was about and I somehow dived in the story without even realising how the pages were flowing beneath my eyes. I was captured by the plot and by the characters of the book.
The chapters alternated between the female protagonist, Pym, and the male protagonist, Rush. I really like books that have two characters who show their own side of the story, informing the reader with more things that help him understand the things that they are supposed to overcome as the story evolves.
I really liked this book since it brought something new to me. The secrets that are held at Aqua, a floating city, make the reader curious and more curious. The dark secrets that revealed in front of my eyes made my jaw drop since when I began reading "The Aqua Secret" I had no idea of what the big secret would actually be.
The main characters, Pym and Rush, who have been friends since they were young, were to my liking. As time had passed they started to have another view of one another but their fear of ruining a friendship does not let them take a step further. Their bond is strong and they always are there for one another despite their rare arguments.
When I found out that most of those who remained alive (after the world had been consumed by water) got the ability to keep their breath under water for a longer time than normal humans can, I started to wonder how that was possible. Rush had been capable to stay under water for a longer period comparted to others of his kind and, when he realised that something with him was starting to change...he wanted to keep it a secret, even from Pym. Secrets among secrets, lies among lies. Pym is scared when she finds out an unbelievable truth that she did not want to acknowledge.
This book was a combination of romance, secrets, fear and betrayal, a dystopia which kept me reading and reading, hoping for the characters to confess their love and survive the dark secrets that are bound to make the next generations something that could be considered unearthly...
I did not give the book a full 5 stars since there is room for improvement but I want to say that it is a really catchy read! I am curious if the next book will be more awesome! I am really curious what is going to happen next and I have big expectations!
"I looked around and could see nothing but ocean. There was no land in sight. There were others floating on pieces of steel just like my family and me... but where we were floating to - I did not know."
"I would often lay in bed at night and dream that Rush and I were swimming to another community and that they would befriend us and show us their ways. But I knew this was only a dream."
"God, she was so damn beautiful, and I tried with all my might and all control not to walk over there and steal her oxygen by kissing her. Did she have to stare at me as if she wanted to do the same?"
"Looking up at the surface of the water, the sun's rays were bright so I could see his face clearly. He swam toward me and put his hand on my waist. I smiled at him to thank him for coming with me, and he nodded."
" “That's exactly right, my dear girl.” I clenched my teeth to stop my jaw from popping open in shock. “You and your little boyfriend are what I call the future. You are the Adam and Eve, and who are going to give birth to a new race, a brand new species.” "
