Publisher's Summary

What's the point of being a princess if the whole kingdom hates you?

Being a royal should make my life easier, but it only compounds my problems. When my father, the new King of Valora, succeeded the beloved King Tiberius, many of his subjects believed he killed my uncle just to gain the throne. His new policies only make the people hate him more.

Just my luck, they transfer their loathing onto me.

Even my best friend and my boyfriend aren't enough of a buffer, and I'm continually fending off verbal, and sometimes physical, attacks. That's when my powers start growing... 

When no one at the academy can - or will - help me learn about my new abilities, I begin to research them on my own. Modern answers seem to be entwined with a terrifying ancient legend.

If the lore is true, my destiny is far more tragic than my present problems. And I don't know if I can change it.

Or if I should even try.

UGH someone give this teen a backbone

I liked the story behind this series. Most stories have mermaids or sirens as evil individuals. This is about a girl who begrudgingly returns home to her underwater world only to be bullied and end up the fodder for family drama.
The only thing that really annoyed me is how everyone wanted our heroine to be stronger but kept her past and many other secrets away from her. If she's old enough to go to college than she should be able to handle some family drama - but for what ever reason Ms Claflin kept treating her like a child without a backbone.
Otherwise the story line was fun, entertaining and definitely YA material and Ms Tina Wolstencroft did a great job bringing a teenagers world to light.
