I don't mean to say the writing is bad by any means either... just that it seems to drift into a conversational style at time that I found a little confusing. It detracted only a little from a good story though.
I think, if it matters, the fact that I normally listen to audiobooks these days almost exclusively (due to lack of time to just sit down and enjoy reading mainly... and I've been an avid reader my entire life), after reading the sample, I bought the full title and somehow found the time to actually read the entire eBook, might be the best endorsement I can give to any book.
If you've seen the graphic novel on-line, this is very true to the graphic novel. The only mermaid novel sequence I've read (and I had no idea it was a genre until I picked this one up and suddenly Amazon was advertising more "mermaid" novels).
Tightly written. So what would you do if you discovered your tears could summon demons?
I hate reading plot spoilers so I'll end with the fact that I'll be buying everything else I can from Mr. Howard!
Alas, I thought the author got bogged down in detail about all the different people in the mythical history. Fantasy writers never get that what makes this sort of book great is our ability to relate to the character, and too much of that stuff that no longer relates to earth in some way gets boring and distances us. So after about a million references to thassolegenes and seaborn and kallixene and house of gregor and ampharete and praxinos and ocheros (you get the idea), I sort of gave up paying attention and started skimming.
I also thought the main character adjusted to her new situation way too easily, missing a nice opportunity for some character development and struggle.
Speaking of character development, I failed to understand the point of the teacher who she is trying to save, which relates to a couple of what were purposeful ommissions: the lack of any real point for the protagonist (was this a journey of self empowerment? not really), and a lack of a love interest. Making the teacher a young student teacher or whatever that the protagonist liked might have made this subplot more worthwhile. Some of the other characters were either way over the top (the evil school director) or not quite fleshed out enough (her two best friends). There were just a lot of people in the story, a few could have been edited out.
It's not a bad read if you like this sort of thing. I did finish it which is more than I can say for a lot of books I start. I just thought it could have been better.

Worth the read, next on to book 2' but this was a complete story on its own.
