A Magical Shell
A Girl Who Dreamed Of Something More...
Lena, a Merrow girl, lives in the Skagerrak sea with her father, Carrick and her brother, Javelin who tells her of the legend of the Merrow Queen murdered by her human lover when greed takes over. But what’s worth spilling the queen’s blood? Gifted from Poseidon, himself, a magic shell gives any human the ability to control both land and sea.
When Javelin is called to join a clan of Merrow soldiers bent on protecting their waters from human invasion, Lena resists Merrow law and ventures to the shore with no choice but to swim to land.
With newfound legs, Lena is whisked away on a new adventure with new friends and new trouble. Everyone seems to want something from her as intrigue lurks around every corner.
Trying her best to hide who she is and remain safe from the dangers of the human world, will Lena finally find where she belongs, or will she be swept into a strong and stormy current by lust, greed, and jealousy?
I read this one yesterday evening/night and I very much enjoyed this book.
I have never read a Little Mermaid re-telling before and I admit I am not really familiar with the original or the Disney version because the story never really interested me but this book sounded interesting and different from anything I have read before.
The book is very well written and it got me hooked into the story right away.
I hope there will be a second book because I need to read more.
If you like Young Adult fantasy re-telling I do highly recommend this book.
I give this 4 out of 5.
