I loved this new book from Carrie Wells. Anya, our resident mermaid, is playful, beautiful, and just happens to be really brilliant! Luke, the human about to plunge into a mermaid-sized mystery, is our sexy surfer type. What I loved about Luke, however, was how well-drawn Wells wrote her character. He was very well-developed. Sometimes the love interests are a lot of brawn and sexy, Luke fells like a real guy, and the kind of guy you can easily fall for. Wells excels at characterization. Her characters are all richly drawn and you get a very clear sense of who all the people in her story are, including the supporting characters. This novella also did a wonderful job of describing the Treasure Coast and luring the reader into a tropical paradise. There is a mystery the heart of this novel. The author has some fun and keeps us guessing as to what might be happening in the ocean but wow, her descriptions are fantastic--don't want to spoil it more than that. This is the first novella in a planned series so expect more from Luke, Anya, and the mysterious deep. This is one of those books you find yourself thinking about a week later, wondering just what will happen! At the Heart of the Deep is an richly-drawn mermaid romance full of vivid description, enchanting characters, and a mystery that will leave you wanting more!

3.5 stars This story has a mystery for us, with a purpose other than the romance that blooms between Anya and Luke. The ocean is changing. And more. There are light orbs that Luke's crew sees on their research boat. Then Anya knows where it's coming from, but she doesn't know what cased the energy source or why it's there. I'm really curious of the light orbs from the trench in the ocean! We rotate chapters between Anya and Luke as they investigate the sea for the same reasons. The attraction between Anya and Luke seems to grow at a nice pace through the story, making it feel as they are connecting on more than a physical attraction level. We see each in their own lives and a growing attraction and connection between them as at first they see and think of each other then brought together with their concerns for the world. I found I was worried for the world and Anya's island because of the crack. The thought that Luke could help was wonderful. But then I worried that the truth of mer-people would get out and destroy the peace they have here. Anya is a mermaid. There is a whole world and system to mer life we start to see unfold here. I really liked that at a moment of weakness Anya admits she had jumped the gun. People do that but she was able to stop before it went to far and pointed out the influences of it. I really liked her for this as she knows what she should do but what she wants too. And sees deeper than the physical separation of human and mer. Okay. If you don't like cliffhanger endings, I suggest waiting for the next story to come out. This ends with a bang and I WANTED TO KNOW what happens. I did enjoy the story and I'm curious as to what has happened in the sea and the light orbs. Is it in reference to the old stories Anya's people know or something else completely. I'll be waiting for the next tale, The Soul of the Sea, to come.
