Review

I'll admit that I haven't read any books about mermaids before. They haven't ever been very interesting to me. I think Deeper might have changed that.

Within the first few pages of the book, I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy Thomson's writing. There wasn't anything in particular that made me feel this way, but I did. However, the feeling quickly passed and I enjoyed her writing throughout the book.

The story was well done. There were no boring parts or parts that felt unneeded. While I enjoyed it all, I absolutely loved the ending. It wasn't what I was expecting and that made it so much better.

I don't want to give anything away, so I will stop here. I do recommend Deeper. It was so much better than I originally expected.
