Deep in the ocean, in a world not so different from our own, live the merpeople. Their communities are spread throughout the oceans, seas, and freshwaters all over the globe.
When Serafina, a mermaid of the Mediterranean Sea, awakens on the morning of her betrothal, her biggest worry should be winning the love of handsome Prince Mahdi. And yet Sera finds herself haunted by strange dreams that foretell the return of an ancient evil. Her dark premonitions are confirmed when an assassin's arrow poisons Sera's mother. Now, Serafina must embark on a quest to find the assassin's master and prevent a war between the Mer nations. Led only by her shadowy dreams, Sera searches for five other mermaid heroines who are scattered across the six seas. Together, they will form an unbreakable bond of sisterhood and uncover a conspiracy that threatens their world's very existence.

I listened to this because my daughter is reading it for summer reading and I wanted to check in on her reading comprehension.
The narration was just not good. The reading was hesitant in places - should have been read without accents - why accents? I had to go back and listen so many times to figure out who was who for conversations. Sounds like the narrator was about 12/13 - should have picked someone more 18ish, with a smoother voice.
This is the most boring and most horrible book I have ever read/listened to. I'm definitely not buying Rouge Wave. Even more upsetting is that this book is the most expensive thing in my library! 😡👿😤😾
