Publisher's Summary

All Tara ever wanted was to be a mermaid.
So she takes a year off between high school and college to don a fake tail and tour aquariums across the country in a professional mermaid troupe. Everything's great until she meets a gorgeous real-life merman named Finn. Suddenly, what she thought was a dream come true turns out to be a nightmare - she's turning into a mermaid herself. For real.
Yet when she returns to the sea to seek out Finn and reverse her transformation, she finds herself in the middle of an impending war between the land and sea. Tara may have always wanted to be a mermaid, but now it's sink or swim. In order to survive, she has to learn how to be one, too.

I Didn't Expect To Love This Story So Much!

I picked up this story as a free review copy from AudioBookBlast thinking it would make a quick listen during my down time that would not require much thinking. I quickly found I enjoyed the story so much I made time to sit and listen as the story progressed. The story is perfectly paced and does not add filler just to lengthen the story. The narrative continues at a perfect pace and holds you the entire time. I was expecting a YA novel with some clumsy romance and actually discovered a great story with broad appeal. I would definitely grab another in the series should it become available!

As to the narration, it was spot on. Claire White demonstrated a wide range of both male and female voices that did not feel forced or awkward. I was so impressed I went looking for other novels narrated by her and was surprised to only see 9 books available. I have no doubt Claire will go on to become a well known voice in the audiobook universe. I continued listening as much for the narrators great voice as for the story! Well done!

Mermaids 💜

I have always been mystified and entranced by mermaids. This book was so light and lovely. I can't wait to read more by this author. At first I wasn't sold on the narrator, but about halfway through I realized she was a perfect match. Definitely worth a credit!

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast.
