Deep Blue Paperback
Part of the Waterfire Saga series
When Serafina, a mermaid of the Mediterranean Sea, awakens on the morning of her betrothal, her biggest worry should be about reuniting with handsome Prince Mahdi, her childhood crush.
Instead she finds herself haunted by strange dreams foretelling the return of an ancient evil, and dealing with the deaths of her parents as assassins storm the betrothal ceremony, plunging the city into chaos.
Led only by her shadowy dreams and pursued by the invading army, Serafina and her best friend Neela embark on a quest to avenge her parents' death and prevent a war between the mer nations.
In the process they discover a plot that threatens their - and our - world's very existence.

Review by wyvernfriend
Gets some added points for interesting world idea but I just didn't care enough about the characters and the situations involved. It might improve as and if I read more but I'm not sure I care enough. The blue print might be a little problematic for those with sight issues.On the morning of her betrothal, Serafina is nervous, her life is about to change, she will be the acknowledged heir to her kingdom, if the kingdom's guardian doesn't kill her. She's feeling the pressure to be the perfect princess and things go from bad to worse during the ceremony. Her mother is shot by a poisoned arrow and her city is destroyed, she discovers that she has a destiny, whether she wants to or not.It's not bad but it just didn't engage me enough.
