The start of a new YA series about mermaids (called Syrena in the book). I really enjoyed this one. Even though it's YA, there's not a lot of teen angst going on. Written in alternating POVs (Emma's is first person, present tense; Galen's is third person, present tense), it took me a bit to get comfortable with the writing - but once I did, look out! I liked getting the story from two different viewpoints, and the alternating voice made it easy to keep straight whose story I was reading. The only drawback to this story - it ends in a cliffhanger!! Highly recommended.
