Something extraordinary is lurking in the deep ocean waters off the coast of Aptos, California. In just a few weeks after moving to the small beach town, sixteen year old Marina has nearly drowned twice, enchanted the hottest guy in high school, and discovered a supernatural creature. If she can only manage to survive her increasingly dangerous encounters with unpredictable mermaids, she might just be able to unlock the mystery of her past to learn how to appease the mysterious forces that seem to want something from her...and maybe even find true love along the way.I was surprised when Derrolyn asked me to review her books and I am so happy she did, I loved Between the Land and the Sea. The mermaids are depicted perfectly and I can believe that mermaids are off the coast of California.
Between The Land And The Sea is the first book in the series "Marina's Tales". Her story continues on in book two, The Moon And The Tide.
The characters in this book are loveable.Marina is strong, loyal, and selfless. She always cares about the others around her first before even considering herself.
Ethan was not what I was expecting. I was expecting some jock who was a major jerk and Ethan was the exact opposite. He is very protective of those he cares about and will do anything for them. Ethan knows what he wants and works hard for it.
I really loved the secondary characters. Cruz, Meghan, and Evie are awesome. Cruz and Meghan are hilarious. I think everyone wishes for an Aunt Evie to spoil them.
Between the Land and the Sea is a fast paced enjoyable read. If you like mermaids - this is the book for you!
