SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
For as long as Esmerine can remember, she has longed to join her older sister, Dosinia, as a siren--the highest calling a mermaid can have. When Dosinia runs away to the mainland, Esmerine is sent to retrieve her. Using magic to transform her tail into legs, she makes her way unsteadily to the capital city. There she comes upon a friend she hasn't seen since childhood--a dashing young man named Alander, who belongs to a winged race of people. As Esmerine and Alander band together to search for Dosinia, they rekindle a friendship . . . and ignite the emotions for a love so great, it cannot be bound by sea, land, or air.
A fun, light read. Perfect for a summer day!
Mermaids are the greatest. Can I just say that now? If the book has to do with mermaids, I will read it. It's so interesting to see all of the different mythologies in the different books. BETWEEN THESEA AND SKY's mythology is one of my favorites. Why? Because of the winged people; people with wings instead of arms. How cool is that? And when a mermaid falls in love with a winged boy, it amounts to one of the best summer reads I have read in a while. The romance was adorable, the writing was great, and the ending was SO SWEET!
Overall, I highly recommend picking this up if you want a light, fun read.
CONTENT: Kissing, no swearing, no violence.
