Nerissa Marin hides among teens in her human form, waiting for the day she can claim her birthright—the undersea kingdom stolen from her the day her father was murdered. Blending in is her best weapon—until her father’s betrayer confronts Nerissa and challenges her to a battle to the death on Nerissa’s upcoming birthday—the day she comes of age.

Amid danger and the heartbreak of her missing mother, falling for a human boy is the last thing Nerissa should do. But Lo Seavon breaches her defenses and somehow becomes the only person she can count on to help her desperate search for her mother, a prisoner of Nerissa’s mortal enemy. Is Lo the linchpin that might win Nerissa back her crown? Or will this mortal boy become the weakness that destroys her?

  1. Whuut?! Why am I just now hearing of this, three months from the pub date?! This sounds awesome and I should’ve been waiting around for it way longer. I love mermaids, too. Stolen kingdoms to rule are great, and who on earth would rist a forbidden love thrown in? TBR, really, right now!

  2. Hmmm. SOLD! I like that this is a mermaid book about a girl who knows she’s a mermaid already. I’m tired of the washed up on shore as an infant plotline that leads to coming of age, holy crap I’m a mermaid teenage-hood. I am also sort of in love with the leading guy’s name. Lo. I dunno why but that seems like a cool name.

    Great pick. *grows TBR*

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book about a mermaid, which I think is strange because they do sound quite interesting! Of course, after that whole September Girls fiasco I feel like I need to wait until I see a bunch of positive reviews for one before I pick it up! And that cover is very eye-catching. I can’t really decide whether I like it or not. I just keep staring at it…
