From Booklist

Attention Emily Windsnap fans: another daunting task is about to be tackled! Sea king Neptune has tapped the intrepid semi-mer and her friend Aaron to uncover the source of his recent night terrors. Terrible memories are knocking at his consciousness and unleashing harbingers of doom. Can Emily and Aaron reach the Land of the Midnight Sun? They might find some answers there connected with Neptune’s long-lost evil twin, Njord, who is beginning to waken and carry out his dastardly plot to overrun the land with a tsunami. Emily’s dry wit enlivens the nonstop adventure in Kessler’s fifth waterworld fantasy series title. Grades 4-7. --Anne OMalley

Format: Hardcover
LAND OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN was a shocking surprise for me when I found it on the book self. I heard somewhere that Emily Windsnap was originally planned as a trilogy and that book four was written later because fans wanted to have certain unresolved loose ends wrapped up. I never expected a book 5 to come out ever. I agree with other viewers that this is best of the series.

Emily has been spending so much time with her boyfriend Aaron that she been a bit neglectful of her best friend Shona. When the two goes to visit the two are nabbed by Neptune's mer-men and given a top secret mission that they can't even talk to their families about. With the concept of an arranged vacation to the land of the midnight sun Aaron and Emily is sent off on their mission for Neptune's missing memories and a feeling coming dread with Millie and Mr. Beeton as guardians on the trip. With each chapter another puzzle piece of the mystery is filled in which makes you wonder if this one will turn out to have a happy ending or not.

The only question neither book 4 or this book answered for me was if Emily had gone back to human school; remained in mermaid school or taking classes in both.

This book was AMAZING! It was the best in the series by far, except for maybe the siren' s secret. I am hoping it will be like the Harry Potter series and have at least 7 books in the series. If you liked this book, then I recommend that you read The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. I also recommend the book Ingo. But mostly, I just want some more books with Emily! I hope you liked it as much as I did. Peace out!

I concider myself to have been extremely privileged and lucky to have won this delightful and wonderful book, through a giveaway on `Chicklish' book site and take this opportunity of thanking them.

Emily Windsnap is no ordinary girl, as she is also a mermaid. Emily takes the reader on the most exciting and extraordinary journeys and adventures, to far-away lands that one can only imagine in your wildest dreams and places beneath the deep sea. In this tale Emily is sent on a top secret mission for King Neptune who has been having the most shocking nightmares. He sends her to a strange and remarkable kingdom where everyone has turned to ice. Having understood why the nightmares have terrified him so, along with her friend Shona, Emily sets out to complete her mission amidst the frozen ice and freezing land. However Shona is miles away busy with her boyfriend Aaron, uninterested in helping her friend complete the immense task that is laid out before her. Will her friend help her so that they can return the sun and melt the ice? Will they work together to save the world and also save their relationship too? In this thrilling new adventure Emily Windsnap is not also faced with an enormous task and a perilous quest to save the world once more, but she is also tested to the limits with her relationship with her best friend. This delightful tale is about deep, lasting friendship and boys alongside a great adventure that will take your breath away.

This has to be the most spectacular children's tale I have read in a long time, with its gorgeous and colorful cover catching my eye instantly. The book is adorned with lovely illustrations that bring the story to life, as you loose yourself in a fantastic tale that is heartwarming, sincere and which contains quite a poignant message.

This series of books is what finally motivated my 8 year old daughter to read chapter books. She has now read the whole series and reads into the night and early the next morning. I definitely recommend these books to readers who are resistant to read "boring chapter books"! Nothing boring in these! :)

Emily and Aaron have to go on a secret mission that only they and Neptune know about. it is in the land of midnight sun. (spoiler alert) Neptune has a twin brother and in the end there is a huge suprise about Archie! i must admitt if i could date any one it would be now dont laugh at me but Aaron. he is so sweet even if your in tje middle of reading and you find out Archie made a bet witj him to kiss emily in the end you will find out that he actually wanted to. in the end of the book its funny when well you will have to read to find out! any way i totally recomemd this to anyone.
