Loved this book & the narrator’s made it an amazing story. It wasn’t a childish book about mermaids like a lot of books are. It had great characters & great history of all the different kingdoms. If you like action, fantasy & mythical creatures definitely give this a try! There better be a book 2 !!!!

Book was good, but it was more a story about the characters lives , than a fast paced psychological thriller. I like fast page turner books that I can't wait to get back too, so although the story was okay, just more fiction of a towns people's dramatic year than a thriller.

I actually really liked this book, I saw a few reviews that peop had said negative things, but I think this book is like a mix between ya & adult fiction, and has a few instances that you wouldn't normally see in a YA. But it was narrated great, plenty of action & twists& turns to keep my attention. I was surprised by the end! But I like that! Mystery/thrillers are my fav to read. So I'd def recommend this book to my friends.

Eighteen-year-old Jill Charron wakes up in a hospital room, leg in a cast, stitches in her face and a big blank canvas where the last 6 weeks should be. She comes to discover she was involved in a fatal accident while on a school trip in Italy three days previous but was jetted home by her affluent father in order to receive quality care. Care that includes a lawyer. And a press team. Because maybe the accident...wasn't an accident.

Story was good, but not great, I love mysteries& even ya mysteries, but when this ended...I was like what?! I even double checked my chapter list to make sure. It was getting really good, I was very into to it & then poof! It was over. I'm not sure I even know what really happened. It's not a bad story at all, just wish it hadn't ended so quickly, I feel like there was more to tell. The performance was great, lots of characters & believable accents, just feel a little cheated at the end.
