My Rating

Synopsis (goodreads):

A Mermaid Dystopian…out now!
The Mers:
What lies beneath the surface?
One hundred years from now, the world has
changed and brought with it, new forms of life.
Who are the Mers? Who is Mira?

Mira always knew she was different. Growing up with Mers, she never quite fit in. When Mira breaks the rules and takes Niren with heracross the border dividing Ellis Island and New Jersey, the border dividing two vastly different worlds, she thought the journey to find out who she really is would be an easy one.

But, as the world in Jersey proves to be a convoluted mix of aristocrats who hate the Mers, pirates who want to sell them, and magi who want to use them…finding her true identity will be a challenge, especially when her best friend Niren is a Mer willing to fight to the death.

My review:

The second dystopian novel i have read and honestly i really liked it. It was different. There were mermaids involved and it was a dystopian.

I loved the way Ami incorporated a completely new world and made it so real at the same time. I am also so glad that her book didn’t turn me away from the dystopian genre, and in the near future or soonish i will definitely be reading more dystopian.

Since today is Halloween, she wanted me to post the review today and i feel that it is quite symbolic to the day. A completely new world, that is what happens at Halloween.

I personally feel that it must have been a bit hard to write this novel and so all praise goes to Ami! 🙂 Also this story was gripping and brilliant! Anyone who wants to read such a book, grab your copy now!
