While I can't say this was the most amazing mermaid novel I've ever read, it was interesting to say the least. The mermaid's in this novel are given a darker nature which makes it different from most mermaid tales. Another difference is the mermaid in this story is actually a merman named Calder. Calder fights against his dark nature and of course a girl helps him do so. I loved that Calder tried to be better than the rest of his family by not killing humans. I liked that Calder was thrown off balance when his charms didn't work as well on Lily as he hoped. I feel like the story itself wasn't as well developed as I hoped. A few things were thrown into the storyline that didn't have an explanation or left me wondering at the end. Sometimes it also felt like a part was missing when going from one chapter to another. Despite that I enjoyed the romance between Calder and Lily. Their romance developed at a realistic pace and she wasn't stuck all over him throughout the whole novel. I think that if you enjoy mermaid stories and romance then this novel will be to your taste.
