She was living every girl’s dream – until her life was turned upside down. All starting with finding out that she’s not just a human, but also a water spirit. Half-human, half-sprite to be exact. Although not just any sprite, Annabelle is prophesied to be the only one who can save both the sprites and mankind.
With a mix of current events, anecdotes from Greek mythology, tidbits of folklore, and Leigh’s own imagination, we join Annabelle in her journey to restore order beneath the sea. Each step of the way her mind, body, and soul are pushed to the limit begging the question, how much can one half-human, half-sprite take?
I really liked the main character, Annabelle, in this story. I think what I liked most about her was how well she handled everything. Not only does she find out there is this whole underwater world she never knew existed, but she also learns she’s half human, half sprite. That’s a lot of stuff to find out about in just one day, but she just kind of goes with it. She doesn’t flip out like I probably would have if I had been in her place.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I thought it was a fast paced, fun adventure! I have to admit the cliffhanger ending didn’t shock me at all because I kind of suspected it all along, but I’m really eager to get my hands on the next book to see what happens next.
