Seventeen year old Nell lives with her very busy Uncle. She is a bit of a loner and doesn't have any friends. She goes on a class trip and soon discovers something unbelievable and amazing. Deep below the sea holds many secrets, Nell is soon to uncover. She meets a boy with beautiful purple eyes, she is certain he is not human.
Sebastian is from another realm, and he wants to reclaim what was once taken. This may not be easy, and it certainly is dangerous. Then he meets a human, which will complicate things even further. Will Nell and Sebastian s two worlds collide, or will they be able to unite and do what must be done?
A fantastic fantasy that is very original, moves at a steady pace, filled with danger, drama, secrets and a splash of love. Nell is very likable, she has been dealt a "bad hand in life" and just wants to be "normal" and happy. Sebastian is also very likable, he is sensible, responsible and does what he feels he must do in life, to make it a good one for him and all he loves. Overall I found The Water Kingdom an enjoyable read, and suggest to Y/A (and Adult) readers who love a great fantasy!

Written in alternating perspectives, Ms. Gray, has created a mystical world where the reader can easily be swooped into. I am excited for the next one in the series since it seems like the actual Water Kingdom will be truly explored! This novel focuses more on the build up of the Water Kingdom. Though this is a young adult read, both characters are mature for their age. In turn, it makes the story more pleasant to read.
My favorite parts to read were when Sebastian interpreted things in the land world as something strange and new. Not being human, Sebastian's somewhat innocence, though someone to not mess with, makes him an extremely likable character.
I highly recommend this read to those who enjoy young adult fantasy reads. Also, for those who would like to like to explore a new type of world - one filled with water!
I received a free copy of this book from the JGBS Review Library in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are my own and no compensation was received.
Set in dual narrative, the two main characters captured my attention right from the start of the novel. Both Seb and Nell had their own distinct voices and thought patterns, which meant it was easy to follow each character without getting lost during the narrative.
Despite being an adult I found myself identifying easily with young Nell as her world and attitudes towards that world changed; and I know that when my daughter gets a little older she too will enjoy reading this story.
The book had a very satisfactory ending in which all the necessary loose ends were tied up and accounted for, while leaving enough of a hint at what might be to come.
I hope there will be a sequel some time soon in the future!

Sebastian knew if h was caught it would be bad, but he had to do something to find his enemy in the human world and the sacred locket Zale stolen from the kingdom! After four centuries the ban between his world and the human world was strictly guarded and he only had minutes to drop off the cliff in hopes that he wouldn't be crushed on the boulders below. Then he surfaced into a lagoon.
