The main character of this book is a girl named Yara who finds out that she's actually a mermaid. Not new ground there of course but what is interesting in new is the world building behind the mermaids and other races in the story. The history and culture are equally fascinating for the other species in this book.
Seriously the story does well when including other magical species besides mermaids. I don't see many books having gorgons as characters, much less likeable ones. Besides awesome world building I love the overall story and the characters.
I highly recommend this book and am looking into reading more by the author.
