With all the Mer nations looking for them and no clue where to start, will the mermaids find the talismans before the monster is released?

Another beautiful cover for the Waterfire series, and a good description as well. The beginning of this novel was a bit less shaky than the last. This might have been due to the fact I already had an understanding of the world from the prior novels. As with all novels in series, this one does brief recapping as well. Overall, the plot continued to be interesting. Each of the characters appeared to grow and Sera left a bit of her naivety behind and become a more believable character. I appreciated the way we were able to see each of the mermaids in their own environment, making their own stand. I still feel that Sera continued to make bad decisions despite the fact that others around her were giving her advice. There were two situations that seemed a bit over the top to me, first Sera and Maudi at the farm and then Neela being trapped by her parents. The book was heading towards a five stars, but the ending immediately dropped it down to four stars. It was too transparent, and too much like Harry Potter for my liking. It didn't feel original, and it felt like a cop-out to make the bad character not so obviously who he was. From the beginning I realized it was that person so to add the "Fear me..." part just made me roll my eyes. I'm excited to see where the series is going and I hope that the characters continue to mature. Hopefully, by the characters will be making decisions that make more sense.
Up until I started reading Deep Blue, the first book in the WaterFire Saga, I had never read a published mermaid story. I go to Fiction Press occasionally and read stories and I've read a few mermaid stories there (only one of which was really good: Surface of the Deep), but beginning Deep Blue I was a little hesitant. I saw the book at Wal-Mart and passed it the first time. The next time I went to Wal-Mart I thought I would buy it and read it - to give it a chance. Unfortunately, Wal-Mart no longer had the book and I couldn't remember the title. It wasn't until about five months later that my girlfriend found the book and then I bought it. I read it and I must say, I was thoroughly impressed with Deep Blue. Five stars and a recommend as well. That being said, I couldn't wait for Rogue Wave as it was advertised in the back of Deep Blue for an early 2015 release.
Well, Rogue Wave came out in early January and I snatched it right up. I bought it and read it and much like its predecessor, I am thoroughly impressed! Serafina and Neela are two badass, feminist mermaids always willing to go above and beyond what is needed to get the job done. They don't rely on the mermen to help them. They're not damsels in distress. If something is troubling them (and a lot troubles them in this series, especially in Rogue Wave), they work on their own to solve their issues.
Now, that isn't to say that they don't get help along the way. They do. They actually get quite a lot of help. When Neela encounters the Askari and get them on her side, what happens next is probably my favorite part of the book. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll just say one word: dragons. Serafina's journey isn't easy either. She goes through a lot only to discover something very heartbreaking at the end. As I said earlier, twist.
Now, with that twist comes my one gripe with this book. If you decide to pick up Deep Blue and you like it enough to read Rogue Wave, DO NOT READ THE SYNOPSIS SUMMARY IN THE FRONT COVER OF THE BOOK! There are three twists in this story, one minor and two major, and the summary in the book cover practically gives away one of the major twists. It doesn't say it outright, but by the time you hit the halfway mark of this book, you'll have figured it out. So, if you read this review before picking up the book, just remove the book cover and go in blind. It'll be so much better because you won't see the twist coming.
Aside from that one gripe, I fully recommend you read this book - hell, read the series! I love mermaids. They're my favorite mythical creature and while WaterFire Saga is the first series I've read that deals with mermaids, it certainly won't be my last. These books will sit comfortably among my favorites and I'll jump into some other mermaid-themed fantasy books while I wait for Book 3 of the WaterFire Saga to come out.
We don't see or hear much of the other mermaids but I suspect that the next book will mainly revolve around them and their quest for the talismans.
Big alert! Not all is at it seems!
