Publisher's Summary

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.

Loved the story, but was not fond of the narrator.

I felt that the narrator spent most of her time bouncing between a 7-11 accent, and threatening to suck my blood.

Narrator

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.

Love the Mermaid life

I really like the way they describe the realm of the mermaids and how they speak and travel and such. It is cute when they reference swimming instead of walking.

performance

This book was not as well performed as the 1st book. I enjoyed the accents from the 1st book. This one sounded as if the voice over was trying to hard. Was hard to keep up with different characters

A much better narrator than the first book's.

The narrator does sound a bit too exaggerated with all the different accents, but I preferred this narrator over the one who did the first book. Listening to the narrator from the first book was like getting your ears cleaned with sandpaper and wired brushes. After that unpleasant ordeal, the forced and exaggerated accents of this narrator feels like a huge relief. If I could, I would have hired Audible Tara Sands or someone else to re-record the narration of the first book.

The story of Rogue Wave was amazing. A great improvement from the first book, which acted more like a slow introduction. This story of this book is more exciting and intense. The dangerous hunt for the talismans reminds me of the hunt for the Horcruxes in the Harry Potter series. And nothing is as it seemed. The twist villain(s) at the end was well done and I look forward to reading the rest just to see what happens.

Good book bad narrator

This is an excellent story and I really like this author. But the narrator should work on their accents and they pronounce the words too dramatically. I preferred the last narrator.
