Publisher's Summary

Every other princess prepares to rule her kingdom after her father's death. Me? I have to get ready to rule all underwater kingdoms - after killing my father.

I already fulfilled the prophecy once. Kind of. I have no interest in killing again.

But no one asked what I want.

It's this stupid Queen Sirena prophecy. My father - my real, biological father - is obsessed. And he's the king, so he gets what he wants. Namely me, embracing a destiny I fear.

As I come to terms with my new reality, I find myself alone, cut off from my best friend and boyfriend and unable to convince my parents this is all a terrible idea.

My father, the king, wants me to kill him. He's set plans in motion to make it happen.

I'm too weak to refuse. And hopefully too strong to succeed.

better but need more back bone

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. While our heroine is told what her destiny will be, at no point is she given the option - thus a life lesson many of us have learned in our lives, but she is so wishy washy about taking control at times, it makes it hard to believe. -
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.
