*I got this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
Mer come to land to find a mate. They can choose to stay and become more human or go back, either alone because their mate is Mer too or because their human mate chose to go with them to Atlantis and become a Mer themselves.
Aryn’s mother died recently. Her father only kept a few of her belongings before they moved to Connecticut where Aryn and her sister got a scholarship at a very exclusive school there. While going through her mother’s belongings, Aryn finds a necklace and decides to wear it. However, on her first day of school, Aryn loses it and accuses the guy whom her only friend takes a fancy on.
Although full of stereotypes and clichés, Mer was quite enjoyable to read and the art was very cute. I like the mythos created and Sellner’s take on mermaids so I’ll definitely follow the series when the second volume is released. The insta-love bothered me a bit but, since it was mostly one sided and I guess the mate thing kind of explains why it was so, I got over it. The last scene gives me hope for the next volume, I can’t wait for it to come out.
