Welcome to A Treasure Trove of Books. My name is Skye and in this blog you will find reviews, book tags, book, hauls, and many other bookish related things and I update daily.
This book is not what I was expecting. I picked it up thinking this would be a fun mythological romance novel. Don’t get me wrong this was a quick fun novel and the writing was good but the last three quarters of the book felt really rushed, there would be 3-6 months between chapters and it felt like she was rushed to finish the book.
This book was the first young adult mermaid sort of book I have read. I had been wanting to read a mermaid book for a long time and this kind of introduced me to it because mermaids are kind of based off of sirens. I think I will be reading more mermaid books now because of this book. The mermaid aspect of this book was portrayed beautifully and the motherly connection between the Ocean and the Sirens was spot on. Although the development of the relationship between Kahlen and Akinli was pretty bad. I felt that there was no real connection between them. He only appears in the book a few times and all the other times he comes up is when Kahlen is moping around because she misses him. For a romance novel it really lacks the romance and focuses more on the relationship between the Sirens and the Ocean.
All in all, it was a good read and the ending was fantastic but the relationship between Akinli and could have been better.
