Pauline grows from a frightened girl, cowering before her mother, Queen Calypso, into one kick-butt mermaid. I cheered for her from the beginning. Her human love, Eddie is charming, funny and all you could want in a hero.
The underwater scenes and world-building were superb. Who hasn't fantasized about the gold-paved streets of Atlantis? And there were dolphin rides!
The book left me hungry for more undersea adventures. There were so many intriguing side characters such as Pauline's BFF Jewell, her two sisters, and the sea witch named Myrtle.
I read this entire book in one sitting, something I haven't done with a novel in a long time. It's a clean read YA story that teens and adults alike will enjoy.
The magic and fantasy part about it was fun and I loved the atmosphere. There wasn't too much world building, but a lot of it was left to the imagination, which I liked.
The Queen was so evil! I wanted to rip her hair out every time I saw her! Her character was developed nicely.
Good, fun, read!

Pauline is a princess and has just turned 16. The younger mermaids are kept in the dark of how the kingdom is run. Now she is 16 new doors are opening but the truth is unbearable. The kingdom has been only females for a long time. Humans are used to help populate the waters, but their fate is anything but gratitude. As this tale unfolds Pauline sees the monster her mother has become. She wants the best for the people but nobody goes against the queen. In fact, the last mermaid that did was banished. She was the queen's sister.
A shipwreck is approaching and Pauline is told to do her part. The ocean has spoken and she cannot help but sing to her soul mate. Now she has a bigger secret than before. She now has reason to defy her mother. What will happen to her human and can the queen be stopped? This is a full-length story which has a good ending, however, leaves a door open for more.
The author has created a magical world different from the human one. The story is engaging and the twists make an interesting read. I liked this book. The romance could have been more intense and mesmerising but all in all a good story.
