ABOUT THE BOOK

Deep in the ocean, in a world not so different from our own, live the merpeople. Their communities are spread throughout the oceans, seas, and freshwaters all over the globe.

When Serafina, a mermaid of the Mediterranean Sea, awakens on the morning of her betrothal, her biggest worry should be winning the love of handsome Prince Mahdi. And yet Sera finds herself haunted by strange dreams that foretell the return of an ancient evil. Her dark premonitions are confirmed when an assassin’s arrow poisons Sera's mother.

Now, Serafina must embark on a quest to find the assassin’s master and prevent a war between the Mer nations. Led only by her shadowy dreams, Sera searches for five other mermaid heroines who are scattered across the six seas. Together, they will form an unbreakable bond of sisterhood and uncover a conspiracy that threatens their world’s very existence.

I love The Little Mermaid story, of course. My favorite book is The Mermaid Singing and even though there are no literal mermaids, it's a great story.

I used to love this one story that my dad used to tell me about a mermaid who was friends with all of the sea animals. And, because I was afraid of sharks, my dad told me that this mermaid was even able to make the angriest shark happy!

I guess my favorite mermaid story would have to be the Little mermaid. I did however find the mermaids in mermaid tail more fun.
