Sink (Mermaid Royalty, #1)
Obedience has always been a matter of survival for sixteen-year-old mermaid princess Pauline. Her mother is the tyrannical Queen Calypso, who rules the kingdom of Atargatis with an iron trident. To utter one word against her would mean banishment—or worse—so Pauline bites her tongue and minds her manners. But on the eve of her sister’s merling-shower, all of that is about to change. Confronted with the truth about what happens to the human men who are betrothed to the mermaids of Atargatis, Pauline realizes she can stay silent no more.Determined to end the queen’s dark tradition, Pauline goes along on a search for shipwreck survivors, secretly planning to free them. But things get complicated when she finds herself inexplicably drawn to one of the men. Before she realizes what’s happening, she has kissed him—and a kiss from a mermaid is not without consequences. Now Pauline will have to risk everything if she is to save the young man and thwart the queen’s dark plans.

    This book was magical from page one until the end. I adore mermaid stories and the author's mythology surrounding them was enchanting. Pauline grows from a frightened girl, cowering before her mother, Queen Calypso, into one kick-butt mermaid. I cheered for her from the beginning. Her human love, Eddie is charming, funny and all you could want in a hero.The underwater scenes and world-building were superb. Who hasn't fantasized about the gold-paved streets of Atlantis? And there were dolphin rid This book was magical from page one until the end. I adore mermaid stories and the author's mythology surrounding them was enchanting.

And there were dolphin rides! The book left me hungry for more undersea adventures. There were so many intriguing side characters such as Pauline's BFF Jewell, her two sisters, and the sea witch named Myrtle. I read this entire book in one sitting, something I haven't done with a novel in a long time. It's a clean read YA story that teens and adults alike will enjoy.Highly recommended!

    I love this book! I was hooked from the beginning and it just got better as the story progressed. If you like/love the little mermaid then you'll love this story! The plot for me was predictable however I did not care because I found the style of writing pulled me in. The characters, I thought, are great. They all have there own personality. The only negative I have about this book is that I found Calypso isn't evil enough. I didn't hate her like you would a villain, I felt more sorry for her. B I love this book!

The only negative I have about this book is that I found Calypso isn't evil enough. I didn't hate her like you would a villain, I felt more sorry for her. But then again that could be part of her character that she tries to portray to people. If this is what the author is trying to achieve, then she has done it! I would recommend to all ages. There is some mild violence at the beginning of the book. There is no language/sexual content except for kissing.

    Love this book. It was the first book of M.E. Rhines that I was reading. Not disapointed. Will sure be reading the rest of the serie.

    This book was so fun to read! Lots of family twist and turns, love, and action. I really can't wait to read book two of this series. If you love mermaids, then this is a must read!
