What in the world! There is absolutely no logic in this book, at all.  Yes, I know it's a mermaid fantasy, but there were crater size plot holes that aliens could see from space!  To show all the flaws, I made a list:




The half-breed town of Syrena made "special knifes" to kill the ocean Syrena, because their skin is apparently really thick.  Okay, why did they make "special knifes" to kill ocean Syrena?  Hasn't they heard of, I don't know, flame throwers, grenades, guns, harpoons, machine guns, bombs, etc...  All of those weapons could penetrate the Syrena's thick skin.  Also, why make a knife, why not a "special gun?" With a knife you have to get close to the stronger, bigger, ocean Syrena to stab them and the ocean Syrena could also take the knifes and use it against the half-breed Syrena.  If they'd made a "special gun" they wouldn't have to get close to the ocean Syrena at all.  See no logic.
If Emma knows Galen so well, why doesn't she worry when Galen doesn't call?  They've been through so much together.  Yet, she seems to think a little squabble is going to spit them apart forever (exaggerated eye roll). Does she really not know him well enough to know somethings up.
When Galen escapes from the evil guy, he just leaves Reed behind.  Doesn't even try to save him (wuss).  He just keeps on running to Grom, Emma's grandfather, Emma's mother, his sister and his BFF to get reinforcements, but they don't go get Reed right away, they talk about family issues.  Does Reed's life matter that little?  Finally, when they do decide to go get Reed (four hours later) it only takes ONE of them to take down the bad guy.  Wait, doesn't that mean Galen took have taken the bad guy on his own when he escaped... 
Don't even get me started on Emma, Reed, and Galen love-triangle, or we'll be here all day.
In the entire series, ocean Syrena don't like half-breed Syrena.  So, when Emma and Galen find a town full of half-breed Syrena, that should mean trouble, turmoil, and revolts, right?  Wrong.  The last chapter before the epilogue talks about going to the archivers and pleading the half-breed case.  But, instead of the last chapter being about the pleading, it's about Emma's and Galen's wedding with half-breeds attending.  Okay, so apparently after only a month everyone is okey-dokey with half-breeds. The book should have been about half-breeds getting excepted; not a messed upped, pointless love-triangle!
