About the Author

Aaron Galvin is a rascal who turned his talent for mischief into writing, producing, and acting in stories that people occasionally pay for.
He is a conflicted Slytherin/Gryffindor, has met Batman and worked for the Joker, and continues to believe he could have been an amazing Jon Snow if only he had been born English.
**Most of the above is true.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!  The cover is beautiful!  I love that it is simply a seal in the water :) I stumbled onto this book and thought it sounded cool, so I bought it.  The author contacted me about a week later asking if I wanted a review copy.  I explained that I already bought it, and I would definitely review it once I read it.  :)  Of course, the rest of you are lucky, it is FREE now :) This story is really amazing and creative.  Being able to write is amazing all by itself, but wow!!  When I started reading, I will admit that I was a little lost.  I’m not sure what caused my confusion exactly, but I think it was switching perspectives while I was still trying to figure out this new and unusual world.  Everything did clear up, and this world is awesome. This book has so much going on with slavery, bullying, camaraderie, friendships, murder, and even kindness mixed into the harshness.  Lenny is a fair amount of good mixed into the bad like most real people.  I really like his snarky attitude as well as his friends.  I really don’t want to give anything away, but I like Garrett, Chidi, Lenny and his crew.  Oscar is rotten and spoiled; he is pretentious and thinks he is entitled. This is a fantastic first book in a series, and I really think it going to get better and better :)  I have already bought book 2 because I want to know what happens next, so be watching for that review in the future :) I recommend this book to the ocean dreamers who believe in underwater fantasies especially if you are into ocean shifters :)  I can’t wait to read more of this world :)  It is free, so what are you waiting for :)

Did I enjoy this book: TRIGGER ALERT:  Homophobic hate speech, racist hate speech. I have some advice for Mr. Galvin: 1. DO NOT, even if you’re writing a “bad guy,” use the ugly, hateful words you’ve chosen to describe homosexuals, people with disabilities, or those of ethnic origins other than your character’s.  ESPECIALLY don’t do this if you’re marketing your book towards a Young Adult audience. I don’t care if the person saying these things is a villain.  Adults must lead by example, and the fact that anyone, fictional or otherwise, is still using these words (no matter what our intention) means they WILL be passed down to the next generation.  So. Very. Not. Cool. 2.  If you can’t write accents well, DON’T WRITE THEM (and similarly, if you’re going to quote Miranda rights, make sure you do so accurately).  Seriously.  I spent so much time trying to decipher how I was supposed to be pronouncing dialects that I couldn’t pay attention to the story, which leads me to . . . 3.  Wow.  Half-human/half-sea creatures going to the zoo.  With high school kids.  Props for originality, Mr. Galvin, but I’ll admit I found it a little less believable than I think you were intending.   Would I recommend it: No, not a bit. The hate speech alone should keep you (and your kids) away.
