While she sleeps beside a log on the wild Oregon coast, a rogue wave pulls Marissa into the sea. Now she dreams each night of a merman who rescues her. Obsessed with returning to this beautiful creature, she again risks her life in the frigid ocean.
Will Marissa remain lost forever in the eddies of her mind, or can real love save her from the abyss? Sometimes, the dangers which lie within are the deadliest. – Goodreads
My opinion: This book was not what I was expecting when I read the summary. I was expecting mermaids but it actually turned out better. I love how focused and obsessed Marissa was with the merman. She actually had me believing that he was real and even at the end, I was still thinking that he was real. Callie Kingston did a really great job in making it up to the reader I think on to make the decision of whether the merman was real or not. If he wasn’t how did she survive? And maybe he wasn’t, maybe it was all just an accumulation of things that were left undealt with from from her childhood?
Anyways, Callie Kingston did an amazing job. I think that Marissa was an awesome to have survived and surpassed all the she has had thrown into her life and that she moves on from it, in some way at least with graduating early and going to college. And I am glad that she was able to find a good guy that stood by her.
Overall: 4 out of 5
