“Everyone knows mermaid blood is like vampire crack …” Right before her senior year, mermaid Waverly Marie Fishwater’s parents inform her they’re moving to the Bay Area in Northern California. She’s to attend a cross-cultural experimental high school. The major problem is that it’s a vampire school, and mermaid blood is their favorite snack!
**A WATTYS 2014 AWARD WINNING STORY**
Mermaids and vampires? Does that even work in a book? I can tell you- It´s possible. I couldn´t believe it myself. `Mermaids and the Vampires Who Love Them` by author Brittanie Charmintine is a breath of fresh air! I´ve read so many books from all kinds of genres and NEVER have I come across a story as unique and as compelling as this one. ( still amazed by how mermaids and vampires worked together )
After the eye-catcher cover I read the book description. I´ll be honest here- I had no clue what to think of what I saw. A beautiful cover, a title that said so much yet not enough, and then the description. Hmm. The fact that the book had won an award AND that it´s currently #2 in the Wattpad Vampire rankings did finalize my decision to read this story.
Let me just say – WOW! . From the beginning to the last page- EVERYTHING was exciting. The characters, the storyline, the details…. all sent me on a ride I will never forget.
Although this was more a Young Adult novel I enjoyed it immensely.
This story had so much to offer ( and SO much more ). To say I was surprised about the Vampires and Mermaids is an understatement- This author packed some more mythical figures into the mix which made this story one huge colorful piece of enjoyment. Are you looking for fairies in a story? Or maybe a werewolf? Hof about greek Gods? Search no more, they´re all in this book and make a wonderful lot.
What I loved most about `Mermaids and the Vampires who Love Them` was that there never was a slow moment. If it wasn´t Waverly doing something spectacular it was another character, showing their abilities and adding using them at the cross-cultural high school.
This was an exciting read that will most definitely make my „Top 10 List Of Awesome Reads“. A magical, mythical, lovable story about new beginnings, lies, truths, friendship, loyalty, and of course, love.
Highly recommendable. YOU CANNOT MISS OUT ON THIS BOOK!
