Serafina, Neela, Ling, Ava, Becca, and Astrid, six mermaids from realms scattered throughout the seas and freshwaters, were summoned by the leader of the river witches to learn an incredible truth: The mermaids are direct descendants of the Six Who Ruled - powerful mages who once governed the lost empire of Atlantis. The ancient evil that destroyed Atlantis is stirring again, and only the mermaids can defeat it. To do so, they need to find magical talismans that belonged to the Six.
Serafina believes her talisman was buried with an old shipwreck. While researching its location, she is almost discovered by a death rider patrol led by someone familiar... The pain of seeing him turned traitor is devastating.
Neela travels to Matali to warn her parents of the grave threat facing their world. But they find her story outlandish; a sign that she needs to be confined to her chamber for rest and recovery. She escapes and travels to Kandina, where her talisman is in the possession of fearsome razormouth dragons.
As they hunt for their talismans, both Serafina and Neela find reserves of courage and cunning they didn't know they possessed. They face down danger and death, only to endure a game-changing betrayal, as shocking as a rogue wave.

I feel like I'm ravenous for the next one and the next one. This narrator was was better than the first one so I got even more into it. Great series!
I felt that the narrator spent most of her time bouncing between a 7-11 accent, and threatening to suck my blood.
It's too dramatic sounding ! The accent is forced! It sounds like she's giving a preview for a movie or she's whimpering like a 40's actress. I mean, I just can't listen to it. I'm sorry.
The story picks up right where the first book ended, and you begin to see other characters point of views. It keeps moving and I didn't want to stop listening to do other things.
I love following along with my book it's so easy to have someone else read it for you. Also to have them use different voices. I loved the narrator she uses good voices.
Serafenia because she is strong and brave and she never gives up. She is not self fish either. She also never gives up hope she fights everything that trys to stop her from doing the right thing even if it risks her life. She is just a good hearted and good spirted character. I think she builds all the suspense in the story. She was a princess now she's a warrior. I'm guessing that was a real struggle for her. She's just really awesome. I love her. So she has to be one of my favorites.
It would be dull and I would a have pronounced half the names wrong but thanks to this I understand the story better also it brings the book to life rather then read it yourself.
Yes. When Serafenia and Madhdi kissed
I love this book also I own all this books there on my book shelf I actually read the first book on my own. But I like having them read to me
