Book 2 in Kathryn Lasky's shimmering quartet about mermaid sisters and supernatural love.

May feels her life drying up. The sea calls to her, but her parents forbid her from swimming. She longs for books, but her mother finds her passion for learning strange. She yearns for independence, but a persistent suitor, Rudd, wants to tame her spirited ways. Yet after her fifteenth birthday, the urge to break free becomes overpowering and May makes a life-changing discovery. She does not belong on land where girls are meant to be obedient. She is a mermaid-a creature of the sea.

For the first time, May learns what freedom feels like-the thrill of exploring both the vast ocean and the previously forbidden books. She even catches the eye of Hugh, an astronomy student who, unlike the townspeople, finds May anything but strange. But not everyone is pleased with May's transformation. Rudd decides that if can't have May, no one will. He knows how to destroy her happiness and goes to drastic measures to ensure that May loses everything: her freedom and the only boy she's ever loved.

My new passion OK OK obsession! MERMAIDS!!!!

I know lately everyone is saying overdone, just like all the vampire books. I think that is all in how you write your mermaid book. If it is done in the same old same old mermaid fashion than of course overdone!

Daughters of the Sea series is wonderfully written by author Kathryn Lasky. May has her own story, she has a missing part from her that she has a hard time finding. The journey May takes in this book is wonderful, she embarks on new adventures not just in the sea, but on land with love, with hurt, with fear and with loss. May's story is a beautiful one. I love how author Kathryn Lasky ties in the first book Hannah but not for awhile into the story.

I cannot wait to start the 3rd book Lucy,I ordered Lucy right away to see how Hannah (1st book) and May (2nd book) tie into this amazing series!

Mermaids how can they be overdone with books like these, a little of everything rolled into one for the reader. Mystery, Fantasy, Love, Betrayal, Discovery with so much more.

Bravo Lasky you never disappoint!
