It has been two years since Rory drowned, and Lorali is in Hastings, living the quiet life of a normal teenage girl. But her safe life on land won’t last for long. Life in The Whirl has become a hotbed of underwater politics and as the council jostles to oust the king, one Mer in particular has her eye on Lorali as the key to her own rise to power.
Meanwhile, Aurabel, a lowly Mer from the wrong side of the trench, is attacked by sea beasts and left for dead – and without a tail. Raging with righteous anger, she rebuilds herself a mechanical tail and reinvents herself as a fearless steampunk Mer seeking revenge. But she never expected the most important job that was about to drop into her lap.
The cover of this book is absolutely stunning. The picture does not do it any justice. This story follows on from Laura’s previous novel Lorali, I do wish I had read that one first as then I would of had a bit of background about all the characters. I did feel as though I was missing out. I don’t know if it was just me but I found the forum interactions slightly annoying, I know it is suppose to be teenage fans talking but I couldn’t understand some of the text language. I would highly recommend reading Lorali before reading this book.
I received a ARC of this book for an honest review.
