Summary:
With power comes the responsibility to accept its consequences. After the betrayal of those closest to her, Eviana Dumahl struggles to cope with her new reality. Kidnapped, broken, and confused, she is forced to engage in a war that will alter merfolk politics forever. With her estranged father leading the charge, Eviana has no choice but to stand by his side. Her continued existence hinges on the acceptance of the power growing inside her, even when that means embracing the family’s dark lineage. Kain Matthew will sacrifice the world for Eviana. And he is not alone. As time runs out, her friends fight to save her life and theirs. An unlikely alliance gives them the edge they need to take a stand, although it keeps Eviana’s heart trapped in the past. A new discovery explains some of her previous mistakes, but it may not be enough to stop her father’s plans. Merfolk, selkies, and water sprites work together to save their kind, only in this final battle, not everyone will survive. In the striking series conclusion, Eviana will learn the true meaning of power, sacrifice, and love.

My Say:
I love the story so much eventhough it is quite close to a typical love story between two different people. First of all, I love it when the story is about merpeople. It's quite different from what I've used to read, maybe that's the reason I want to read the series badly. Eviana is a great character of a mermaid. She got engaged, then like someone else. It's a triagle love story and I know she's struggling a lot with herself to choose. The conflict between merpeople also comes in between. She has a lot of responsibilities and sometimes I could feel she's reluctant and doubting herself. I love her character and how the character deals with everything. She's independent, tough, and in the end, I think she can figure everything out. The story is also has a quite a pace, so it's light and you could finish in one sitting. I would recommend it to be read.
