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.

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.

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.

Enjoyed the story not the voice

Perhaps it was expecting too much to request someone who either has or can perfect the correct accents for multiracial characters. This story is a joy to read but not to listen to which is unfortunate since that is the purpose of audible. In any case I thought it was a good story with a message about learning to take responsibility even when others who “know” you best try to limit your potential. I’d be glad to let me teens listen well maybe just read.

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.

Great sequel!

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.

So good

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!

Great story line

It is a captivating story line and well written. My only problem was the narrators voices. It was painful to listen to some of the accents.

Good

I really enjoyed this book and the storyline. I'm glad they switched narrators, not to sound picky, but I'm not totally on board with this one either. She is very good. Especially with the range of voices that she has to read for. Any other book I think I would really enjoy her. I just feel like she makes Serafina sound a bit whinny and I don't think that would be her at all. Storyline is very good though! The great writing keeps me coming back!
