Seventeen-year-old Crystal White is the new girl on Starfish Island. Dragged to the remote community by her environmental activist father, she is eager to find fun that doesn’t involve touching fish guts or listening to local folklore.
During a midnight swim with some new friends, Crystal is pulled out to sea by the waves. Convinced she’s going to drown, Crystal is rescued by Llyr, a handsome stranger. As she searches for him in the following weeks, she finds there may be more truth to the Starfish legends than she thought.
Over a sizzling roller-coaster summer, Llyr introduces Crystal to magic she’d only ever dreamed of. But as Crystal comes to love Starfish Island, it begins to drive her family apart. A nearby power plant is devastating local marine life, and her parents are stuck in the middle. As the magic and mundane parts of Crystal’s life converge, she finds herself risking everything to save Llyr, her family, and herself. (less)
I loved this.the writer had worked on the plot holes in the previous book and this was a really beautiful book.the description was so vivid and entertaining that the reader feels immersed in the story. The story plot was so good and the build up to the climax was the best. The tension between Crystal and Spirit going on through out the book and the eventual fall out made the book a one -sit read for me. I am waiting hard for thesequel. Good work.desmuth.
. This book kept me on my toes from start to finish. I enjoyed Crystal and Llyr and their love story. The creative twists that incorporated first love, mermaids and mermen, troubled parent relationships, and a teenager in a new town kept me entertained the entire book. I enjoyed the levity of the writing and never got bored by this story. The way Josie Demuth incorporated fantasy and coming of age was brilliant! -another reviewer.
