About the Author
She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.
Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.

She had been picked up by the SS Trevessa (ship).
Charles “Charlie” Seaborn (boy) welcomed her aboard.
He insisted she eat/drink.
Captain Foster had come to observe her.
William “Blue Eyes” McGregor helped Maria put on some men over size britches/shirt.
Mr. Allchin (cook) wanted her to eat also.
William (engineer) slept on the bottom bunk & Maria on the top.
The next morning, he gave Maria a tour of the ship.
Kaito (Japanese, crew) & William were going to put on a boxing match fight for the crew.
The bets were placed.
Captain Foster broke it up before it could get to far out of hand.
What were Barrett, & Sciarra (Barrett's BMF) up to?
Captain Dunnet informed everyone the Trevessa was sinking fast.
Marie had gotten into a lifeboat not a raft.

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written sea adventure book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great sea adventure movie, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

How to Catch Crabs - Heartwarmingly funny! A well written, happy romance with two main characters and a fun plot that keep the reader immersed in their story until the story ends, too soon at that. I had to read Ocean's Justice to find out the story of some of the other characters. According to the author, this is a prequel to Ocean's Justice and the Turbulence and Triumph series.
Ocean's Gift - This series should be read after the Turbulence and Triumph series, but it's not necessary, just sequential. This is another well written story full of romance, intrigue and humor. It's hard to put down any book by this author. Although I chain read these four books, I didn't get oversaturated, which I have done with other authors and stopped reading to have a change. They were like reading a long length novel, the pages just flew by.
Fire and Water - A well written, fun filled romance between two unlikely characters that has the entertained reader immersed in their story. The ending is HEA, but not in the way the reader expects it to happen. According to the author, this is a prequel to Ocean's Gift and Ocean's Infiltrator. The male love interest also appears as a minor character in Nightmares of Caitlin Lockyer.
Halcyon (#1) - A well written scifi/fantasy with believable characters and an interesting twisting plot. I finished Halcyon in one sitting, couldn't put the book down. Ms. Carlton never disappoints the reader, her books are always good, no matter the genre. A gifted storyteller. Love the dedication to the physics PHD. This book has a preview, which I appreciate knowing what a book is about before I read it.
Fishtail (#2) - OMGosh, this series is addicting! I love this well written story with it's interesting characters and twisting plot. I loved the ending, because I wasn't sure the author would return "secret" (read the book to find out). I laughed about the main male character, you can call him a fantasy - I wonder if I have to move to Australia to get one of his kind. This series is just as great as her fairy tales. Again, another good story from a very good author. This book has a preview, which I appreciate knowing what a book is about before I read it.
I take it this story is a steam punk setting? The design/language/attitude depictions sound Victorian, and yet there are pen lights and aspirin.
...which leads the focus to pen lights and aspirin. The main hero (or any of the other characters) never finds it odd that not only does this woman not speak a language they recognize, but she has never seen a pen light before or aspirin. He never questions the oddity of it.
Near the end of the story, when she goes to retrieve the comb and notices the boat is floating away. She is a mermaid. She doesn't even try to swim after it and keep it in her sight. She doesn't try to use the flipped life boat for flotation help while kicking her tail to keep up. For a mermaid who has some powers to control sea life or water, she doesn't even enlist their help to keep up with William.
So, this story was kind of hard for me to remember why I was reading it. "Oh, she is a Mermaid? I was sure this was the Kindle release of 'Nell.'

It's a great read that keeps you hooked from beginning to end, and I can't wait to read the next book and find out what happens next!
NB I received a complimentary copy of this book, but I always give an HONEST review based wholly on my own opinions
Anyway, as good as this book was, it also had its negatives. But let me list a few positives first: the time pacing was pretty well executed, and there were no strange lapses; the characters became slightly developed by the end (after all, this book is part of a six-book series); and the love story was cute... except at the end, were the cuteness evaporated to make space for the ensuing sadness.
Now, onto the negatives: there were a few points were this book felt boring. Like, everything just seemed to halt and stay there for a while too long. I'm glad I continued, though, since book two (which I got for free, too—like the this one) seemed to pick up its pace... only slightly. Both books are really good based on the development of the storyline, but since the next four books (that's roughly 334 pages altogether for £7.28) are a bit too expensive, I won't be carrying on. I had more negatives, but I can't remember them. And I can't find my notes on the measly amount of grammatical errors I spotted. Drat.
All in all, this is definitely worth a read if one is looking for a short-ish book that begins to uncover a secret siren world.
