This book was just mediocre. It was cute enough I suppose, but it was forgettable and predictable. I won't remember what it was about tomorrow, but I didn't hate it. I listened to it on Audible and the narrator was pretty good at least.

kgriffith Agreed. The part I most enjoyed was the relationships between the girls and their mother figure (it‘s been a few months and, as you say, it‘s a bit forgettable, so I don‘t recall the details/how they referred to her) and the peddler and his adopted charge. 11mo

A surprisingly good book about a girl, in the 1800‘s I guess, watching her sister turn into a mermaid and their perilous journey to get her to the ocean before it‘s too late

I loved this book!! It was such a good read!! I cried twice in it, once when they thought Maren was taken and then when Clara got married to O‘Neil !! I love the surprise when they revealed Auntie was married to Scarff! I hated, HATED those nasty Gypsies. I kept hoping they would die and was extremely satisfied when the wyvern eat them!

How is it possible that a book about mermaids, witches, ravens, dragons, gypsies, and curses could be so boring? If I hadn‘t listened to this in audio form, I think I would have bailed. I‘m going to be generous and rate this as a so-so instead of a pan. It was just SO dull! 😴⭐️⭐️

Mollyanna That's so disappointing. 2y
GypsyKat @Mollyanna It really was. 2y
DogearedJes I actually really enjoyed this one. It's been a while since I read it, but I don't remember it being boring. 🤷 2y

I‘ve decided to start this audiobook today while I work around the house. Audiobooks make laundry much less boring. 😉

If you're a fan of slow-burn will-they, won't-they angst, this is the fantasy romance for you. Clara's always known her sister was destined for the sea, but now it's up to her and the steadfast O'Neill to take her home before she shrinks away to nothing. This is a cute one.

BarbaraTheBibliophage @CrowCAH Now we just need to combine your pirates and this style - how about that! 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @lisakoby Thanks! @Soubhiville We must have the same taste in design. 👏🏻👏🏻 @CatLadyBibliophile That's the one I MOST picked for its cover - its gorgeous! 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Leelee08 And I agree with your point - a great cover still isn't enough if the book doesn't sound interesting. 😎📚 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen Gosh, you have such good taste! 😜 3y
Cinfhen 😂, I found you, so DUH, of course my taste is excellent 😘😘 3y

I love anything to do with mermaids and was so excited for this book. The cover even drew me in. I rarely bail on a book, but after getting halfway through, I just couldn't go on. The characters were so grating, I found it tedious to read, and I so badly wanted things to move along or have some charm to them. I hate giving up, but I really just don't enjoy this one.

A tale with adventure, romance, magic and sisterly love. A great, quick read. This is also the first work of a former newspaper staff writer. Gotta support my fellow journalists!

A lovely story of family and love in all shapes and forms. A little predictable but would still recommend - perfect summer/beach reading. Longer review on my goodreads page - Jodie Downes

beagle.mama I enjoyed it until the end, then it got weird for me. It was a good summer read though! 4y
mrsbatman85 Yeah I thought the end was a bit rushed and tied neatly in a bow @beagle.mama 4y

I had planned on picking up an actual book but it's harder than it sounds with a fractured shoulder and torn tendon in my arm! However I am very much looking forward to starting this. Anyone else read it? What did you think? NO SPOILERS PLEASE! Literally just YAY or NAY

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I haven't read this one, but I will agree that ebooks are the way to go when injured! Get better soon. 4y
