I learnt something from Wavecrossed. About something called a selkie. You might want to look up what a selkie is before reading because I assumed the book was about mermaids or something from the watery cover, so I kind of went huh? when I began reading.
The characters were awesome, particularly Brennan and Leisel. Admittedly, Cassandra’s attitude annoyed me sometimes, but other than that I pretty much liked all of them (Cassandra included). There was every character you could want, a nice girl – Leisel, a bad girl – Ashlyn, a villain – Mr Murphy, a nice and yet a little bad guy – Brennan and of course Paul just has a category of his own.
I got a little bit annoyed every time a character’s lips quirked because that seemed to happen at least twice a chapter. But other than that, I’m not complaining.
I would recommend this to people who like water themed books (mermaids, selkies, etc.) and enjoy writing with a modern feel to it.
Here are some quotes I loved:
“Midnight is the perfect time to eat a turtle” – the first sentence (1%)
“Looks were a mask; you couldn’t trust them. They never showed the person underneath.” – 26%
“Your getting your ass kicked by a wall.” I said, “That’s embarrassing.”
Paul turned. He scanned me from head to toe and I thought would comment on my new outfit but all he said was, “This wall competed I the Olympics.” – 85%
