Celia Reynolds is the youngest in a set of triplets and the one with the least valuable power. Anne can see the future, and Jane can see the present, but all Celia can see is the past. And the past seems so insignificant -- until Celia meets Lo.
Lo doesn't know who she is. Or who she was. Once a human, she is now almost entirely a creature of the sea -- a nymph, an ocean girl, a mermaid -- all terms too pretty for the soulless monster she knows she's becoming. Lo clings to shreds of her former self, fighting to remember her past, even as she's tempted to embrace her dark immortality.
When a handsome boy named Jude falls off a pier and into the ocean, Celia and Lo work together to rescue him from the waves. The two form a friendship, but soon they find themselves competing for Jude's affection. Lo wants more than that, though. According to the ocean girls, there's only one way for Lo to earn back her humanity. She must persuade a mortal to love her . . . and steal his soul.

Short review for a short read. I keep reading mermaid books, praying to find one that leaps out at me. This one fell flat. It wasn't terrible, but it was just sort of blah. The writing wasn't special, the scenery was sort of generic. The main character being a triplet was a nice change, but there ...
It took me a while to return to this series. Sure, I liked Sweetly a lot, was impressed at the themes of strong female friendships, the choice in fairy tales that don't often get remade, and the atmosphere of magic that Ms. Pearce genuinely managed to make me feel. (I was lucky that I read Sweetly b...
Wow. This book was a huge disappointment. Mermaids have always intrigued me. And I love fairytale retellings. Those two elements should have made it a four or five star read. What ruined it for me? Hmm... I'm not quite sure. Maybe it was the Lo/Naida confusion? Maybe it was the love triangle that wa...
It's official: Jackson Pierce is here to stay. You know how I know? Because her books get better as time goes on.Is it odd to say? That this series gets better with each book, I mean? For book bloggers, that doesn't seem to be much of a recommendation, yet for some reason the series that got talked ...
