About the Author

Amber Garr spends her days conducting scientific experiments and wondering if her next door neighbor is secretly a vampire. Born in Pennsylvania, she lives in Florida with her husband and their furry kids. Her childhood imaginary friend was a witch, Halloween is sacred, and she is certain that she has a supernatural sense of smell. She writes both adult and young adult urban fantasies and when not obsessing over the unknown, she can be found dancing, reading, or enjoying a good movie.

Mermaids and selkies are not allowed to be together so, of course, Evian and Brendan have it in for them. But I didn’t foresee the complications that Brendan's seal skin brought him or the fact that everything would go downhill for the couple as the book neared the end…

I cannot choose – Brendan or Kyle? Or even Daniel for that matter? I think that I finally decided that I would have Daniel as my boyfriend because he seems like the most patient, loving and even tempered of the three of them, and Kyle and Brendan as my best friends.

I must say that when Brendan made his first appearance, I thought that he was attacking Evian. I’m not sure if it was meant to appear that way, but I was a little suspicious, as I wasn’t sure if a seal would do that… it turned out that it was just Evian and Brendan messing around and seeing who would win between the two of them.

I don’t think that I liked Carissa. She seemed like the sort of person who would steal your boyfriend from under your nose, and everyone would take her side because she was ‘awesome and everyone wanted to be her’. I don’t know if that’s just my imagination running away with me, but I just don’t like her.

All negative things left behind, I am now contemplating buying book two, so that I can find out what happened, because the extract from book two, which was in the back of book one, wasn’t enough to satisfy me.

I Recommend this book to young adult readers who like mermaids and the idea of swimming along the sea bed.

(I received a digital copy of this book for free as part of the `Syrenka' Blog Tour!)
This is book 1 in the `Syrenka' series.
17-year-old Eviana is a mermaid. Not only is she a mermaid, but she is her clan leaders eldest child, which means that she will be the next clan leader. Mermaids are a dying species, which means that they must marry and breed appropriately. Eviana's parents have arranged a marriage for her, to Kain - the heir of the Matthew's clan, who as mermen go, is quite a catch.
Eviana and Kain have known about this arrangement since they were very young, but while Kain obviously has feelings for Eviana, Eviana has a boyfriend, a selkie (seal) called Brandon who her parents don't approve of (as mermaids and selki's can't breed together).
With Eviana's 18th birthday only a few weeks away, her marriage is fast approaching, and she knows that as much as she likes Kain, she belongs with Brandon, and they begin to make plans to run away together.
With tensions running high between Eviana and her parents, a Syrenka Cotillion to attend, and her wedding day looming, Eviana throws her entire life away to run away with Brandon, even when she knows that Kain would be a great husband and that they would be good together.
But when disaster strikes, and Brandon's life is on the line, Eviana finds that having no family and friends to turn to could mean that she loses the only thing that she ever truly wanted, and she must swallow her embarrassment and ask the people that she left behind for help.

I really enjoyed this book, from the very first page I was swept into Eviana's world, with both its magical beings, and teenage normalcy.

I really enjoyed this book, although at times it felt rushed and there wasn't enough back story or world building for my liking. But the story was there and interesting it kept me reading and wanting to know what happens next.
Eviana had a difficult choice to make and for me she made the wrong one and I hope that changes in the next few books.
Gonna start the second book and see what happens I think it's gonna be better than the first

This book reeled me in and I entered the world of merfolk. There is plenty of action from love and betrayal to the finding of powers. I thoroughly recommend this book and the whole series. The writing is superb and you want to be there yourself.
