Twilight meets the legend of Atlantis in this gripping graphic novel from writer Joelle Sellner and artist Abby Boeh. After the death of her beloved mother, Aryn’s father has moved her family to a new town hoping for a fresh start. At first things seem to be going well—Aryn is making friends and has even caught the eye of one of the hottest guys in school. But there are dark forces moving under the surface that Aryn cannot see; and her new crush may not be … human.
I found this take on the mermaid mythology very entertaining with some beautiful graphic art. The story itself is easy to follow with an interesting plot fraught with mystery and romance.
Aryn’s character is forced into moving towns with her father and sister when her mother dies of Cancer. She must acclimatise to a new school and town. The only thing that makes her feel close to her mother is a shell necklace she finds in her mothers belongings. She is resentful and looking to belong in a place she doesn’t. Her character slowly develops through the graphic novel as plot points are revealed.
The art itself was amazing with some beautiful imagery and colour. The cover was what originally drew me to this book. With an enjoyable plot and stunning imagery this is a graphic novel I found thoroughly entertaining.
Keep Calm and Read On,
