Emerge by Tobie Easton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In Emerge, Lia is a mermaid, a direct descendant of The Little Mermaid, and her life is in danger because of it. That’s because The Little Mermaid unleashed a curse on all merkind, throwing the mer world into violence and war. Lia is part of a community of mermaids living on land, trying to blend in with the humans. But there are rules, one of them being that she can’t date a human. Too bad her old friend Clay is so hot.
But when he starts dating the new girl–who just happens to be a mermaid–there’s bound to be some problems.
Emerge was a neat story based on a more tragic Little Mermaid than some might remember. The romance is sweet and maddening, the magic is real, and the story is full of depth. A great read for fans of The Little Mermaid and young adults who love mermaids.
