Deep in the ocean, in a world not so different from our own, live the merpeople. Their communities are spread throughout the oceans, seas, and freshwaters all over the globe.

When Serafina, a mermaid of the Mediterranean Sea, awakens on the morning of her betrothal, her biggest worry should be winning the love of handsome Prince Mahdi. And yet Sera finds herself haunted by strange dreams that foretell the return of an ancient evil. Her dark premonitions are confirmed when an assassin's arrow poisons Sera's mother. Now, Serafina must embark on a quest to find the assassin's master and prevent a war between the Mer nations. Led only by her shadowy dreams, Sera searches for five other mermaid heroines who are scattered across the six seas. Together, they will form an unbreakable bond of sisterhood and uncover a conspiracy that threatens their world's very existence.

    The book Deep Blue is written by Jennifer Donnelly. I really like this book because it is full of magical creatures. In the book, there are different languages that mean the same thing. The book is talking about the adventure of the mermaids. In this book, the main character is the mermaid named Serafina. She was supposedly engaged to Prince Madhi. But when she heard that over the two years, Madhi had changed a lot. He had become a playboy and even had a girlfriend. When Serafina first heard this, she was very sad. But her best friend, Neela, cousin of Madhi, cheered her up. When the day to announce Serafina as the new queen, an attack appeared and maybe had killed Serafina's mother. Since that day, Serafina and Neela had been going through different difficulties and getting into several problems. Serafina and Neela met different mermaids from different places. Each one of them had to leave their home and family to save the ocean. The thing that I like about this book is that the characters in the story have great confidence even though they were at their worst times. I think the story is very heart-warming and exciting at the same time. I would really recommend this book to people that like to read or watch action books or movies because there is a lot of different adventures in this book that are super surprisingly fun and dangerous.

              I totally loved this book! It was very descriptive and was filled with romance and adventure, love and beauty, sadness and joy. I would only recommend this book for fourth grade and up. As a fourth grader myself, I love adventure books. They gives me ideas and descriptive words, and encourage me to be an adventurer. Plz follow me!

                  I loved this book, but would recommend it for older readers, like the age of 4th grade and up, like me. I am in 4th grade. This book very particularly interesting. Very well styled though. Can be inappropriate at times though. Remember everyone, if you follow me, i'll follow you, and that is a promise i'll keep.
