This was a fun spin on The Little Mermaid! Here, instead of a mermaid falling for a male human prince, we have a siren falling for a female pirate captain.

I really enjoyed the worldbuilding in both land and sea. I adore the concept because The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite Disney films. And it kept me reading, wanting to know what happened next. And that ending! It caught me off guard and left me curious about what would happen in the sequel.

While I liked this book (and admittedly binge-read it 2/3 is the book in one sitting), sadly the general lack of characterization prevented me from loving it. I never felt that Kae and Aqeara, or the side characters were fully fleshed out and I really wanted to feel like I was on the adventure with them, instead of feeling as if I was watching them from a distance. And I was hoping for a little more from the love story - it did feel a little insta-lovey to me. In the sense that our protagonists didn’t interact much through the bulk of the book, and then fell in love rather quickly. I felt their friendship more than their love in this instance.

In any case, I’ll most likely read the sequel.
