Nerissa Marin hides among teens in her human form, waiting for the day she can claim her birthright—the undersea kingdom stolen from her the day her father was murdered. Blending in is her best weapon—until her father's betrayer confronts Nerissa and challenges her to a battle to the death on Nerissa's upcoming birthday—the day she comes of age.

Amid danger and the heartbreak of her missing mother, falling for a human boy is the last thing Nerissa should do. But Lo Seavon breaches her defenses and somehow becomes the only person she can count on to help her desperate search for her mother, a prisoner of Nerissa's mortal enemy. Is Lo the linchpin that might win Nerissa back her crown? Or will this mortal boy become the weakness that destroys her?

Ten reasons why everyone wants to be an Aquarathi
by Amalie Howard

  1. You can have the best of both worlds—you can live on land and underwater.

  2. You are at the top of the marine food chain. No kidding. You are the king of the underwater pride rock—the buffet is open.

  3. You can manipulate water in any form—technically called hydro-projection or glimmering. Think how handy that’ll be if you need to put a fire out.

  4. You look like an underwater dragon. Seriously, who wouldn’t want to be a gorgeous, lethal, fantastic underwater dragon?! Yeah, you know you want to flex that fantasy muscle.

  5. You can shape-shift into human form. Any human form. Move over, Gisele Bundchen.

  6. You are bioluminescent—totally cool because you’ll never need a nightlight.

  7. You have the power of mind suggestion. Get out of homework card, anyone?

  8. You live in an undersea world that no human has ever seen.

  9. You can surf or swim anywhere in the world without fear of shark attacks. They smell you coming … they swim in the opposite direction. Twilight surfing, yes please!

  10. Your senses are a hundred times more powerful than human ones. Imagine being able to sense things around you without seeing, hearing or touching them? Yeah, we’re talking alien ESP. No need to tell you how awesome that could be.

    I totally couldn’t do it. I don’t even like looking at like the deep underwater areas. *shivers*

    I don’t know how I like Finding Nemo so much…

  2. Megan @ Adrift on Vulcan

    I was going to read this, but then a lot of people were talking about how bad it was so I put it off for a later time. But I’ve also heard about how the Aquarathi were super unique and totally unheard of before, so I was intrigued. And now this post! Wow, it really does sound cool to be an Aquarathi. I love the bioluminescent one the most — just imagine how awesome it would be, swimming and glowing at the same time! And heck yes, now I don’t need to worry about accidentally stepping on poisonous barnacles in the sand whenever I go to the beach. Really, it’s the best of both worlds. 😀

    Thanks for sharing, Giselle!

  3. Tiffany- Escaping... One Book @ a Time

    So totally sign me up for being Aquarathi!! I am such a freak about water. I seriously will not live in a place that I can not see it 🙂 So all those benefits that are listed above are above and beyond anything that I could ever imagine and would basically be a dream come true!
