Review: Deep Blue

Deep Blue
Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnelly

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Serafina has trained for today. This is the day she is to be betrothed to Prince Mahdi and she wants to win his heart so that it won’t be an empty marriage. But Sera has been having disturbing dreams and she is not sure if it is her imagination, or if she is seeing a dark future. After her mother is struck by a poisoned arrow, all doubts are removed. Serafina must find out who is behind this attack and try and prevent a war between the merpeople. She must find five other mermaids that are destined to work together, but finding them is only the beginning of the quest.

Deep Blue is the first book in the Waterfire Saga. Donnelly takes a mythological realm and creates an epic adventure to satisfy many fantasy fans. The story includes many anecdotes of mermaid historical legends. Readers who are new to the Mer will find a great jumping off point to explore this varied myth. I will warn readers that this book has a huge cliffhanger, so if you don’t like to end a book without satisfaction, you might want to wait until the next book is released. For those who are willing to finish with longing, I promise this book has action until the last page.
