Overview

At the ripe age of 21, happily single Mericle Edwards discovers that her body - her human body - is only a temporary fix. Born in the Deep as a princess with fins and gills, she was hidden amongst the humans, so her father - a corrupt sea king - could not use her to his advantage, or worse, destroy her in order to keep his position as ruler of a kingdom in the North Atlantic.

With the guidance of her mentor and his unmatched 'charm', and a few others along the way, Meri will have to make some tough decisions.

Will her deadly fear of water be a problem?

    At a Glance/The Cover:  I won this book in a giveaway, so thank

    At a Glance/The Cover: 
    I won this book in a giveaway, so thank you to Ms. Lane for sending it to me. I have to say, I wasn't very fond of mermaids. Or angels. Or werewolves. But this story was fun to read. And I wasn't annoyed of Mericle. There was an interesting plot. :)




    The Characters/My Opinion: 
    Mericle Edwards - She thought she was a normal human being with amazing legs. That was, well, until she met Mat. Now, she learns of her amazing abilities to do telekinesis and breathe underwater. It's ironic that she is so afraid of drowning. :) Mericle was a fun narrator. She is super confused about the things going around her sometimes, but her talks are enjoyable and she does have a little bit of humor. Like a normal person, we see Mericle break down and gain confidence again and again.




    Mat - Hmmm. I think Mat was a huge part of this story. Truly, if he wasn't 9 years or was it 11 years? older than Mericle, I would have shipped them so so hard. It would be #Maticle....okay. Maybe that isn't so cute, but really. Their relationship. And he caring about her so much. He's like a guardian angel. And I'm glad to see that Mericle did have the guts to experience and try the romance part of the relationship. 




    Kelsey - Kelsey is Mericle's best friend/roommate. She is super bubbly and awesome to have around. People like her brighten our days a lot! She kept Mericle up and about and less gloomy. She is so supportive of everything. And all her set ups and hard work did pay off. :) 




    Jeff - Of course, then we have Jeff. So fulfill the third angle of the love-triangle. At first, I didn't have a huge impression of him. I just waved him off like 'nahhh' I probably preferred Mat more for Mericle. But later on, after more physical features and personality was portrayed, he didn't seem so bad. Honestly, I thought it could have been better. Jeff and Mericle's romance could have been more in depth than just something that is causing the chemistry. 




    Overall Thoughts: 
    This was definitely a fun mermaid read. I loved the little details and descriptions of Mericle learning how to use her tail and how she transported to places. :) 




    This actually isn't even to the main part of the conflict yet. The evil dad. The Call of the Deep is sort of like an introduction to the story and Mericle's first glance at her official future. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel~




    The Rating: (1-10): 8~
