Emily, her family, and her friends are off on a relaxing vacation. Emily promises her friend Shona and her boyfriend Aaron that it will be a trip without any danger, for once. The only problem is that adventure seems to follow Emily wherever she goes.
When she goes on a trip to view the Falls of the Forgotten Island, Emily swears she sees a face in the falls. For that reason, she feels the need to investigate it in a way only a half-mermaid can-through the falls themselves. Emily can't believe what she finds, but Shona doesn't want to hear anything about it and Aaron feels like he's being pushed away. How can Emily avoid adventure when lives are on the line and she needs her friends' help to save them?
I have to admit that this is the first book I've read in the series, and I didn't feel that I needed to read the others in order to enjoy this one. Instead, this story holds its own adventure. I really liked the friendship and fantasy elements and how it teaches not to underestimate the importance of the support of your friends.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of mermaids, fantasy, adventure, and friendship.
