My review in one word:  Intense


From the intense character development to the intense action, and of course...the intense killer mermaids.   This could be an epic movie, in the right hands...

While it's debatable whether or not you should call them Mermaids...and I'm not going to say any more than that...these beings are insanely cool and super-scary.  The last half of this book is seriously good, and the first half sets up the second half, with character development that is very in-depth...maybe a little too much...maybe not.  It all depends on what you prefer.

I am really happy I listened to this, it makes the slow sections easier to bear.  I even used an Audible Credit to do so, and I don't regret it.  There is a prequel (Rolling in the Deep) to this and I wished I had known about it, beforehand, I would have read it first.
